Dont say I dont do nothing for yah.
Alright, so a while ago I promised I'd try and track down The Crash That Ended in E, the out-of-print split from Frank Rizzo and ROFL (two killer Sydney punk bands) originally released by DIY or Die Records. One of the members (and Aus Grind forum lurkers) has been kind enough to allow me to post it up here (just like he did his old Dot Dot Dot recording).
ROFL play fast, spastic, discordant, rocking Charles Bronson and Spazz-inspired powerviolence hardcore, while Frank Rizzo play fast, screaming, and somewhat catchy hardcore punk. I'm a very big fan of both bands and always try and check 'em out when they play. Infact, Frank Rizzo have a show coming up on Friday the 17th of October at The Harp Hotel with Grannyfist, Code of Lies and Fuck Oath which I should be heading down to.
Anyway enough small talk. Let's fuck.
Frank Rizzo live at SAS Studios in 2007
Ahh now here is a rare gem from Australia's extreme scene - so rare, I doubt even fans of the band would've heard this. This is Dot Dot Dot's never-released album 'Fits of Nothing' from 2002.
Dot Dot Dot (or ...) are/were a spastic, ear-piecing Sydney punk/powerviolence band with a bit of grind and noise thrown in for good measure. They played around 25-30 shows from 2000 to 2003, and it's members would go on to form the likes of Baltic, Guts, Altered Beast, ROFL*, Vae Victus, Predominant Slug, Maus and Sirens of IO.
The lineup was: MICKO (vocals), SHOGUN (guitar), ROCKY (bass) and DEANO (drums).
Pretty cool stuff if you ask me, well worth a listen, especially for fans of powerviolence like Spazz and Man is the Bastard, as well as every fast, angry punk band. It's a cross between fast screamy punk and powerviolence with some spastic and discordant shit thrown in with a few suprises and played with a sense of humour. There are some guest vocals from Troy (ROFL) and Ari (Nintendo Police, Baltic) in the mix as well.

Now lets see if I can't back this up with some downloads in the coming weeks.
*Who have a killer out-of-print split with the very cool Frank Rizzo hovering around in DIY second hand CD stores - maybe I should see if the guys'll let me throw that up here sometime?
