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

It’s called ‘Smooth Crotchless Operation’

Posted by Lachlan

Sydney noise supergroup Dyke Destroyer want to share something with you:

That track sort of reminds me of Naked City's more insane moments. The group have their debut album The Saga of the Necropants available for free download. You can also like them on Facebook if that your kinda thing.


Taking over FBI Radio – Monday 23rd May

Posted by Matt

Lachlan and myself jumped at the opportunity to spin some grindcore in the name of AusGrind late one night on FBI Radio, Sydney's best radio station by miles (for example, album of the week this week is the new Battles album, holy shit so happy). So anyway we set out to inform the general Sydney public of the awesomeness of grindcore, and although my mum still hates it we had a ball.

With Scott Fitzsimons manning the buttons we played a nice cross section of grind with a few other random gems thrown in for good measure and plenty of shameless self promotion. You can now stream the full two hour show below (language warning).

Five Star Prison Cell to reissue ‘The Complete First Season’

Posted by Lachlan

A young Five Star Prison CellFive Star Prison Cell are planning to reissue their incredible genre-splicing debut 'The Complete First Season'. They however, are unsure of which label the reissue will appear on (any label but DW Norton's is my guess).

Personally The Complete First Season is my favourite Five Star release to date. If you're a fan of bands like Mr. Bungle, Naked City, Dog Fashion Disco, Meshuggah, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Botch (etc) and you dont own this album, then pull your head out of the sand and experience one of Australia's most overly talented, promising and unique bands in the extreme scene!

The Complete First Season by Five Star Prison Cell


Download: Naked City – Radio

Posted by Lachlan

My favourite Naked City release. Not the easiest to get unless you fork out for the 'Complete Studio Recordings'. A word of advice: if you're thinking about getting Black Box like I did (Torture Garden/Leng T'che) just man up and go The Complete Studio Recordings, its well worth it.

Now when some jerk tells you that Mike Patton is a genius and the most original, most amazing creative musical mind on earth, you can tell em to get a clue. Ask em who they think that 'John Zorn' bloke who produced Mr. Bungle's first album was. Enjoy!

Download it from Rapidshare or from FileFactory.
