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

Grotfest – Upstairs at the Tote

Posted by mothereel

Totally Grotty

Hey Victoria!!  You feeling free and easy?

I'm pretty lazy, so I'm just going to copy the band descriptions as given to me...

The Impossible Nobodies:
Melbourne instrumental quartet featuring Morriszonkle (“that weird one-man-band symphony lunatic”) and members of Puta Madre Brothers, Foreign Magicians, My Favourite Colour is Gold and The Busty Insects.  Self-described “noxious caveman splatter jazz” taking influence equally from Jerry Goldsmith, Lester Young and the Melvins.

Great Earthquake:
Noah Symons aka Great Earthquake is a real renaissance man. Most days he can be found writing, playing and performing music as Great Earthquake or as a member of art-folk outfit Timothy and Wilderness or minimal punk-jazz band Light Lions, drawing and painting, or working as a barista in the lush green outer suburbs of Melbourne.
Noah is a veritable one-man-band live, playing, often all at one time, guitar, bass, drums, percussion and accordion, creating soundscapes, organically built up in time, with a strong emphasis on rhythm. His energetic performances have found him playing in cafes, pubs, shopping centre’s, art spaces, warehouses and backyards across the country.

Colostomy Baguette?:
Formed in 2009, Colostomy Baguette? were originally going to be a grind/gore band, but the night before the first rehearsal both members were blown away by Encircling Sea and decided to add various other noises into the mix.  Taking elements of goregrind, funeral doom, black metal, industrial and just about anything that is painful to the ears, Colostomy Baguette? are a band of noise.

REVIEW: Nothin Suss – Suspect

Posted by Matt

SuspectNothin' Suss are a bunch of Albarians (all chain smoking, gun toting people who live in Albury, NSW, Australia) have released another one of their classic gore grind mayemic CD's. This time it is a CD split with Jacksonville band Queef Huffer. The CD was released on a US label called RottenRoll Rex, and I am assuming you can pick a copy up from them or the band. Its cool... do it!

The Nothin' Suss side of the CD is some fucked up pitch shifted gore grind, some pure awesome shit you can really get down and boogy to. The songs are broken up between the tracks with some fucked up samples from their extensive personal library of gay and transvestite porn. Originally intended as a full album the songs did not stand up as a single release and has to be made a split to balance out their turdcore music with some actually decent grindcore from Queef Huffer.

Each song is its own entity of digital bass and fruity lyrics mostly about their love for their long term girlfriends and obsession with each other ball sacks. On a more serious note the songs are awesome. I have always enjoyed this bands music, a completely obtainable groove grind that can get any sort of person up and dancing. The vocals from Angel Cake have come quite a way, choosing to layer various styles over each other to obtain a sound they are happy with. All the guitar and bass lines are very catchy. Rather than trying to show off with extreme metal riffs and ultra speed drumming they let their lyrics and songs do the talking. Reminding my much of Blood Duster's rockier side on Lyden Na.

One of the great things about this band is that they aren't just another computer band but they actually get out there every weekend and convince stupid venue owners to let them play their music to the 7 metal dude groupies who let them stick their peeny in their bottom.

The Queef Huffer side of the CD is better.
