I'm very hungover so I'll make this short and sweet. Friends; family; religion. These are the three things you must slay if you wish to succeed in grimness.
Tonight at the Lansdowne Hotel:
Kill A Celebrity (midnight)
Backyard Mortuary (11pm)
Beer Corpse (10pm)
This is Kill A Celebrity's 2nd last gig. We're going to do a final one probably around the end of the year with our mates and then we can both go on with our lives and pretend this never happened. I'll probably be giving away our new split CD with Krupskaya too. Why not?
Tomorrow night at the Bald Faced Stag: Helm are playing. Helm RULE. Check them out.
Love and doom.
Kill A Celebrity have put up free music on a number of social working platforms.
On their Last.FM page, The Killers Celebrity are offering free downloads for 6 of their 10 tracks from their new split with Krupskaya on Grindhead Records. On their MySpace page, they've posted 7 new tracks from various points of their illustrious career, including the genre-bending opus 'Cobretti'.
Check it out. They have 2 more Sydney shows left until this disband (a date for their 'farewell party gig' has not yet been set.
Oh and be sure to keep your eyes out for Mat's new powerviolence band Michael Crafter (in which he plays guitar and sings). You wouldn't want to miss that now would you?
This seems to be the weekend for Grindhead Records CD launches. Sydney beercore cunts Fuck Oath are launching their new album at The Lansdowne on Friday with a bunch of jerks and Kill A Celebrity and New Blood are launching their new releases at The Bald Faced Stag this Saturday with a bunch of jerks.
Friday night Fuck Oath are up first at a free gig at The Lansdowne Hotel. They are joined by Deathcage, A.V.O. and The Corps. How can you go wrong with a free gig, a good feed and a decent selection of James Squire beers? That kicks off at 8pm.
Saturday night Ebolie return to the stage after a 6 months hiatus - only to go back into a hiatus since their guitarist apparently needs knee surgery. Kill A Celebrity are launching their split with Krupskaya. They will be flogging off these splits for $5 and merch for $10. New Blood are also launching their new album. Also playing are Nobody Knew They Were Robots and Sound the Mute. Entry is $10 and that kicks off at 7:30pm.
That's two decent gigs to pre-occupy yourselves with. Enjoy.
It all goes down at The Bald Faced Stag for a measily $10, and they may-or-may-not have their 3-way split CD with Beyond Terror Beyond Grace and Brainwash on hand for the occasion. Also appearing are Nobody Knew They Were Robots, Kill A Celebrity, New Blood and Sound the Mute.
The gig will also server as the 'official release party' for Kill A Celebrity's split with Krupskaya and New Blood's new EP Paradise Disintegrates as well as being one of Kill A Celebrity's final shows before they forever fade into obscurity (their 2nd last Sydney show to be exact).
Ebolie have been working on a full-length album since forever and is expected for release in 2017.
For all you nerds, the Facebook event is here.
Since our Grindslaughter demo is available for download (recorded at the start of 2007) , I figure we might as well throw up these recordings too.
I recorded and mixed these 4 tracks in my bedroom towards the end of 2007. At some point I was meant to release them as a 'Digital EP', but then we had some strange Malaysia record label interested in releasing them in a professionally printed 5 way split CD with a few cool bands (Collision from the Czech Republic, The Arson Project from Sweden and Onanizer who are all the goods).
We got the audio mastered by Tim Carr and sent him the tracks, but for whatever reason he decided to never reply to any of the bands. We also used 2 tracks for our CULT AS FUCK split double floppy disc with Anal Discharge which is long sold out.
Hope you enjoy them. Feel free to burn and share them with mates.
Oh and if you have Facebook, fucking become a fan already. We won't tell anyone. Keep an eye out for our split CD with Krupskaya due out March/April 2008 on Grindhead Records too.
