Cripple Bastards & Jig Ai in Sydney!

Posted by mothereel

BYO at a DIY!! Couldn't be more Grind if it tried!!

That other guy, who does most of the stuff of Grindhead Records*, has pulled this little beauty out.  For those of you who cant make OEF in Victoria this year, here's the alternative.

Cripple Bastards from Italy, first time in Australia.  Jig Ai from Czech Republic, I believe their first time in Australia.  Both want to impress, caress and distress you.  Both known for their past.  Both are looked to for the future.  I'm rambling.

The Sydney bands are smiled upon by many.  Ether Rag being hailed as the best the region has to offer in grind.  Dark Horse have been doing some great things with their D-Beat style as well.

It's one of those gigs.  Be there or cry about it later.

Here's the facebook event page.
Grindhead Records website.

 

*you know I co-run the label now, don't you?  Just thought I better mention it, in case I start blathering about how awesome a label it is and how it does all these great things for the scene and bands etc.  Potential bias and conflict of interest in reporting stuff.

Czech Summer of Grindcore – 2011

Posted by Matt

While we are freezing our buts over here welcoming in our first day of Winter, middle finger well extended, the Czech Republic are basking in the summer sunlight (20 - 27 Degrees Celsius FYI), hosting MASSIVE grind/fastcore festivals. With all the great bands on offer I still think that there is more Australian representation needed (Hopeless and 50 Lions do not count). Personally Fluff Fest lineup gets me super hard with reunion of Swing Kids, Ceremony, Touche Amore etc., but if you want your crust then hit up play fast or your straight up grind/death at the ever-awesome Obscene Extreme. Or all of them! I personally enjoy the variety of each festival, unlike Australia where the same 20 bands play every festival (Megan Washington... lucky you're hot), there is some serious variety.
