Dispolar began as a humble one-man-band a month ago to the day, before finally evolving into a 'live' band (featuring the talented half of Kangaroo Kebab and the percussive half of Michael Crafter) two weeks ago yesterday. While it's all progressing quite well, Dispolar are still in need of a four stringer slinger to complete the band. Rehearsals at Brookvale/Dee Why, so transport is essential. If you're interested, contact Tex - firstname.lastname@example.org or through the band's Facebook page.
FFO: fast hardcore that sometimes likes to pretend that it's powerviolence
Those chaps at Fat Ass Records have gone and done it again. They've put out another 7" and this one is a corker!!
If you have ever read this blog then Captain Cleanoff don't really need to be explained to you. Their portion of the release contains 2 new songs and a cover of the Righteous Pigs. It looks to me like their artwork is done by Glenno, you love it.
Flip the disc to side 'A' and you get War Of The Second Dragon (WotsD). WotsD is a new band formed by Shane Embury from Napalm Death with dudes John Cooke, David Flower, and Duncan Wilkins. 5 minutes, no slow moments here, pure grindcore blast.
Prepare for punishment!!!
After smashing it at their launch gig, Grindhead Records is happily presenting to you this debut EP of Sydney band Exekute. Here's what Grindhead Records have to say:
Grindhead Records brings an experience of complete and utter ferocity. This release demostrates the old school death metal elements that make the genre an intense and formidable display of musical prowess from catchy riffs and solos to intense vocals and pulsating drums. The catchy song arrangements and appeal in the music leaves no doubt that they are serious about their role and intend on making an impact.
For fans of Death, Benediction, Malevolent Creation, Monstrosity, Sodom, Exodus.
Well well well.
A long weekend and a shitload of gigs to get out to.
Here's my picks...

Diploid, those Victorian people who play a form of Blackened Hardcore and feature a dual 'gender equal' vocal attack, are coming to Sydney and its surrounds. They are even joined by Queenslanders, Dirty Charlie, on the Saturday. That's two interstate bands plus some pretty good locals for the price of one!
Diploid, the band that has recorded a song featuring Extortion's Rohan doing vocals and that features members from recent to Sydney band Idle Minds, will pleasantly surprise your Sydney elite-ish sensibilities.
Diploid, go and see them.
What a big week for grindcore.
Sydney gets a second international grind show in two days, as Japan's Noisegrind monsters are joined by split pals UMBILICAL TENTACLE (VIC), and supported by Sydney's THEDOWNGOING & HACKED TO CHUNKS at BLACKWIRE RECORDS tonight.
5 clams for 4 bands. All ages, doors at 7.
And don't be all punk and turn up an hour and a half late and expect to see all the bands, this show has gotta be finished early to not piss off the neighbours.
