The guys in Tenderloin Hooker Needles are putting together a compilation for the love of and in tribute to Anal Cunt. They want you, your gutter band and a recording device to meet and hopefully pull something out. See below:
So this is a labor of love. We simply want to gather bands, people in basements, doing electrogrind...whatever...that share a love for noisy grindcore like Anal Cunt. We are setting a target date of October 25th to have it compiled, mastered, designed and ready to release via zip archive with 320kbps MP3 quality.
I don't expect a lot of groups to participate so if you want to send more songs for us to include, feel free...we can create a Vol. 1 and a Vol. 2, etc. The noisier and dirtier you can get the grind...the better!
What we need:
1) Band bio
2) Band logo
3) Band picture
4) Song in one of these formats: .AIF (Apple lossless), .WAV, 256kbps or above MP3
5) A link for us to pick the song(s) up
What you'll get:
1) A release link so you can distribute on your respective sites
2) We will post the compilation on our bandcamp page, tumblr, wordpress, twitter pages.
3) A huge thank you for the fun
4) Friendship in grind!
So, if you guys are still interested...you have until October 25th!
We'll notify via emails to those who participate.
We'll put up the link to the download after October 25th.
We respect you you crazy bastard. Rest in peace.
Do you like your grind fast?
Kontoh is the side project of Mother Eel drummer AJ, by choosing a pseudonym he is able to create more straight down the line hectic fast grind music. Steering away from the more metal based Mother Eel licks. Although this is a solo project AJ got in a few of his fellow grinders to help him record including Nakafuki Katsumi (Nathan Kenna) on Lead vocals, Silly Sally (Thomas Hungerford) on bass and vocals and Kontoh (AJ) on drums.
Kontoh pays homage to his heroes Scott Hull, John Zorn and mountain grinders Beyond Terror Beyond Grace. All songs were recorded recently in January 2009 for a quick and painless release possibly on the online label Crypt Designers Guild. All albums are up on their under a free licence, true DIY style. Some of the artwork was done by Rein Nomm, choosing a more abstract and serious packaging yet still with tongue in cheek undertones.
The latest release from Kontoh is a 48 track epic album from this fast and furious grind act, and still able to clock in at exactly 20 minutes. On a first listen to Kontoh it brought me back to early Anal Cunt. Most songs clocked well under a minute full of blasting drums and some fucked up fuzzy bass. This CD is great to have in the background whilst ironing to truely help you relax and i also enjoyed the recording style as it was all done with a live feel.
All tracks are originals except their are 3 covers from Anal Discharge, Naked City and Agoraphobic Nosebleed. These help break up the constant 30 second grind songs. Which can become fucking repetitive after the first twenty 20 second songs. But I like it, it adds to the appeal of its aggressive, tongue in cheek nature.
Well worth a listen, I don't think it is availbe for download yet but when it is I will post a link below.
Wow, Relapse Records sure dont fuck around with their reissues. Check em out along with these upcoming releases.
Bloodduster - Str8outtanorthcore, Cunt & Fisting the Dead / Yeest:
Catch some of the new Relapse reissues of Bloodduster's classic albums; Cunt, Str8outtanorthcore (my favourite) and Fisting The Dead/Yeest. All reissues come with sexy new artwork (from Glennos - check out his site) and shitloads of bonus tracks - so dont miss out.
Cephalic Carnage - Conforming to Abnormality REISSUE:
Cephalic Carnage's 2nd full length album has been reissued on Relapse in both CD and Vinyl form. Definitely one to pick up; Cephalic Carnage's technical, THC-soaked, jazz-tinged bud blasting is something to behold. Remixed, remastered and repackaged with 21 bonus tracks.
Coldworker - Rotten Paradise:
Well, here comes the Swedish death metal machine Coldworker's second full length album. The first album was a little underwhelming with artificially clean and polished production coupled with fairly monotonous songs that tended to drag a little on the long side. Lets see if this one is any better - Relapse never shies away from hyperbole, calling it "form the quintessential Swedish death metal album for a new century of extremity". It features Anders from Nasum - how bad could it be?
Enemy Soil - Casualties of Progress REISSUE:
Old school grindcore with heavy politically and socially progressive ideologies. Enemy Soil is grindcore in the purest sense; a reissue of a classic that many may never have heard.
Scott Hull - Requiem:
The first album from Scott Hull of Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed and Anal Cunt fame. I'm not sure what to expect with this album, and I'll definitely check it out out of curiosity. The press release says he "pathos of death, the burden of guilt, and the weight of consequence in all their stages" - alright if you say so...
Check em all out at www.relapse.com - they're all available for pre-order.
