In the spirit of Faith No More and Alice In Chains comes Newcastle shit/punk group Anal Discharge's long-anticipated reunion.
And by 'long-anticipated' I mean 'holy shit I prayed to the Lord my God that I would never have to suffer Anal Discharge again'.
And yes; Mat IS dressed as a banana.
Why wouldnt he be?
If God Invented Head He Must Be Very Good At It
The smallest yet most influential band to come out of Newcastle have announced a reunion show. Conation! The melodic hardcore grind outfit featuring members of Fear Like Us, Captain Cleanoff and A Death in the Family have come together after a 3 year hiatus to support the mighty Propaghandi on the Newcastle show. This rumor has been floating round for some time between many conversations and now it is confirmed. I personally am very excited, purely for the fact that I never had the chance to watch them last time round and decided against going to their final show which I much regret.
For those who don't know Conation they are the single largest influence for most Newcastle hardcore band in the last 10 years, they had a very different sound and shaped much of the Newcastle music. In a good way. They existed from 1997 till 2006 before calling it a day. With a sound unlike any band that I can think of, perhaps Napalm Death meets Bjork. Or something fucked like that.
Their is also mumbles about their EP with they have been recording on and off for the past 3 years to come out with a run of national shows, but nothing is in stone especially with the announcement of ADITF going to USA in March.
I can't believe I'm getting my grindcore news information from MTV.
Guitarist Michael Amott recently spoke to MTV.com about the possibility of a reunion for CARCASS, the legendary British grindcore band he played in during the early '90s, which was formed by NAPALM DEATH guitarist Bill Steer and drummer Ken Owen in 1985.
"It seems like it never goes away like this ghost that's always hanging over me," Amott said.
"It's nice. It's a pleasant ghost, because CARCASS are a band I'm proud of, because it was one of the better bands to come out of that style of music at that time. The band itself seems bigger now than when we packed it in [back in 1995] I can't believe it." Amott gloats.
It seems like this reunion may actually go ahead
"With CARCASS, you have four people who have all moved on and do different things now," he said. "For the last few years, I've been quite open about my desire to reunite CARCASS.... So we met up, rehearsed for about a week, and by the end of the week, it sounded amazing. It could be done, but I don't know with everybody's schedules having changed again, it kind of fell out of the picture. But it's definitely doable." He added.
Keep your eye on the internet as Amott hinted of some new CARCASS activity in the not too distant future.
