AusGrind: Australian underground grindcore, punk, doom and DIY culture.

But mum, don’t you know? Beards are grind

Posted by Matt

A great blog called the "Girls who love beards Club" have been doing some interviews of late with epic beard toting men from the underground Australian music scene. The girls have been asking them many of their secrets behind a great big bushy beard, and professing all things love towards those who sport the true facial hair. I highly recommend browsing through their back catalogue to read up on interviews from Drew from Totally Unicorn, Morgan from 4Dead, Dave Dray from Between The Devil and the Deep, Justin from Coerce and Craigos from Midnight Funerals PLUS heaps of pictures of awesome beards. It makes me feel happy that their are girls out there who love beards enough to blog about it on a daily basis.

But in the meantime you can preorder your copy are listen to the "hit single" from their bandcamp. The Rev's EP was self recorded, mixed, mastered true DIY style. Brutal spazz grindcore and a live show to match, I always love seeing these dudes on "stage", its freaking AWESOME.
