Alright guys so this Saturday is the highly anticipated Grindhead Records promoted Craic Whore Grindcore at The Harp Irish Pub at 900 The Princes Highway in Tempe. The joint is a short walk from Sydenham or Tempe station, doors open at 7pm and entry is $10.
Unfortunately due to “unforeseen” circumstances Takedown have pulled out of the event. More accurately they forgot that it was on. The good news is that Kill A Celebrity will be taking their spot on the bill – and that all bands will be allowed much more generous set lengths. Kill A Celebrity will also be joined by Shannon of New Blood and Split Face on bass guitar – so make sure you check that spectacle out.
The complete line up is:
- Slowly Building Weapons
- Anal Discharge (Newcastle)
- Kill A Celebrity
- Granny Fist (Newcastle)
First up we have Sordid playing crusty grindcore in the vein of Phobia and old school Napalm Death. They’ve been putting on some great shows with Shaneo (of Bludgeoner and Roadside Burial) helping out on second guitar.
Second we have Granny Fist - an absolutely chaotic experimental noise/grind band hailing from Newcastle with awesome stage presence. These guys are just a violent aural raping – grind fans be sure to check them out. When I first saw them they blew me away!
Then we have the usual self promoting crap from me with Kill A Celebrity – a hyper-speed violent grindcore band who will be performing for the first time with a bass player.
Up next are Anal Discharge are a completely unpredictable hardcore punk rock group from Newcastle with an absolutely insane live show – I mean these guys go fucking nuts. They’re great drunken misogynistic fun – if nothing else, come for these guys and you don’t regret it.
Then headlining we have Slowly Building Weapons, hot on the heels of their newest release Nausicaa. Slowly Building Weapons are an experimental hardcore group – their tracks are slow and menacing like the darker moments of Converge and 4 Dead filled with discordance and headfucking soundscapes.
Plenty of good reasons to come down, check out some new bands and have a pint of Guinness or fifteen. Hope to see you all down there!
