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

Number One Hits III: A Tasmanian Compilation

Posted by Matt

Just released is a compilation of music from Tasmania, featuring an eclectic group of songs ranging from skramz, grind, punk and low fi pop.

Some great bands are included on their for those who love their technical skramz including the likes of Bears, Train Park. And of course Tassies seminal grind band Nowyou'refuckeD. Put together I believe by one of the members of Bears who now calls Melbourne home, this is part 3. Let's hope they keep pumping out these compilations to remind the rest of the country how rad Tassie is. Get acquainted with the diversity coming out of our great south.
