Two very cool Australian bands have put out new releases in the last couple of weeks; Adelaide's filthy merchants of nihilistic doom Space Bong and Perth's depraved, porn-obsessed Cuntscrape.
Space Bong are a South Australian doooooooom band featuring members of a number of very talented groups, including Meat Wallet, Death-Cult Jock and The Guantanamo Bay City Rollers. Their debut album The Death of Utopia is now available from An Out Recordings (which is a label run by Anna Vo of Crux).
The Death of Utopia is a four song, 70-minute odyssey of noise-laden doom/sludge, made in part in collaboration with Die Like A God. It comes in a nice smick little digi-pak and is currently available from Big Star (SA), Repressed Records (NSW), Paint it Black (NSW) and Missing Link (VIC). I'm fucking very keen to get my hands on this; Space Bong fucking destroyed at Squatfest 2009.
Next up, Western Australia's Cuntscrape have released a new split CD "Split Roast" on Prime Cuts with Deathfuckingcunt. You can always count on these dudes to pull out some groovin', rockin' tunes that will transform even the most virginal angel into a filthy slab of depraved meat.
Old mate Lord Labia knows his shit, so get your gesticulating headcunt listening flaps around this Split Roast. I promise I won't film, sell and distribute the ensuing orgy that would put even the ancient cult of Dionysus to shame.
