Download: Throat Of Dirt Demo (2012)

Throat Of Dirt

Canberran Hate & Loathing

One of my current favourites in the Australian fences are Canberra's Throat Of Dirt.  Supported by public servants and dosed up on dissonance, the guys have recently recorded a 2 track demo that is now available through their bandcamp page.  You can name your price.

They are also currently looking for another guitarist, maybe with some vocal opportunities.  Here's what their facebook says:

We are contemplating/toying with the idea of adding a second guitarist (preferably one with vocal abilities) to our live line up and possibly permanent part of the band. If anyone is interested please message us. Canberra based preferably but Sydney based is a maybe.

If that appeals to you, perhaps the best course of action to take would be to download the demo, listen lots, contact the band, send nudes and positive vibes, cross your fingers.  That, of course, is starting with the assumption that you own a guitar, and can play... if not, my advice is this: work in a shitty job, build hate, save for guitar, purchase guitar, realise it's probably not good enough, return to shitty job for more years, build more hate, get better guitar, realise you need an amp and possibly transport... oh you get the idea.  I'm not Tolkien, so I'm not going to write too much.

DOWNLOAD: Poisonous Viper Gang – Rosies Dinner

Posted by Lachlan

Poisonous Viper GangPoisonous Viper Gang are a heavy as hell raw sludgey stoner-tinged punk 5-piece from Adelaide. They're a little hard to nail down style-wise, as they constantly play with a mixture of  stoner, sludge, hardcore, rock and punk - but they're damn cool.

They feature a few faces that should be familiar to people hip with the Adelaide underground, including Steve (vocalist of awesome partyfunk group God God Dammit Dammit) on drums and Troy (vocalist of awesome doomstoners Hydromedusa) on guitar.

Their debut full length album is available FOR FUCKING NOTHING over at their bandcamp. You'd be a straight fool not to give it a spin.

Go download it for free, because you're heaps punx.

DOWNLOAD: Dark Horse – DEMO 2011

Posted by Lachlan

Dark Horse - DEMO 2011, raging d-beat crustSydney d-beat crust hardcore punx roxers Dark Horse have got their 2011 demo online for free download. It's pretty nice man. Real raging, nice noisy, crust production and solid playing.

The band is full of old mates who have been around for ages. Dark Horse has members of Dischord, Frank Rizzo, None Remain, Rock N' Roll Weapon, Unclean, Vae Victus, Cause and Effect, etc. That's probably why they don't suck.

Go rage brah, go rage.

Then you can like them on Facebook and we can all be e-friends.
