Facebook event:

Long a staple of the now legendary and defunct Metal for the Brain festival, Captain Cleanoff have enjoyed a long run as one of Australia’s most-loved grindcore bands – instigating wild moshes and obscene dance-moves wherever they go. For many Aussie grinders, their combination of blast-beat infused punk and an indelible sense of groove is just too infectious to deny.

Now the name Death-Cult Jock may not ring a bell, but its members are definitely no newcomers to the Australian underground music scene. Having played in groups like Space Bong, Meat Wallet, God God Dammit Dammit, The Rivalry, Night Hag and many more, this group plays frenzied, crust-laden grindcore at breakneck speed, calling to mind the likes of Insect Warfare and early Napalm Death.

The tour supports are mix of old and new, featuring;

  • thrash punk favourites Burning Servant.
  • death/grind veterans Roadside Burial.
  • the powerviolence punk duo of Michael Crafter.
  • the dissonant and angular jazz/grind of newcomers Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt.
  • the hyper-sexualised pious swing/grind of Battle Pope.
  • old mates from Ebolie playing in their new frenetic grinding-tech-polyrhythmic-latin-jazz-grind outfit Serious Beak.

It is one of those busy weekends, one of those weekends where you think you will get some time to lounge in front of the idiot box watching old reruns of Maxwell Smart, but noooo, on top of the fact it is the Mardi Gras there is about a million shows going on. Making it that little bit more insane to be travelling through the city trying to catch them all. Conation is touring their post-humus EP and have last shows in Sydney the same time as Little Lungs from New York doing their yellow ghost thingo and Wolves at the Throne Room are also in town with s Heathen Skulls tour, fuck last weekend nothing was happening and now they bombard us with awesome shows.

66% of a shit 'meat pie'
57% of a schooner of Carlton Draught
31% of a glass of Wild Turkey & coke
4% of 5gm of weed
2.1% of a ticket to the Future Music Festival
0.8% of a decent prossie

OR 4 violent NSW grind bands this Saturday night!!!!!!

We've got the frenetic Blue Mountains grinders Beyond Terror Beyond Grace headlining with their blistering Rotten Sound and Discordance Axis influence modern grind assault. Beyond Terror will be playing BRAND NEW MATERIAL for the majority of their set.

Matt Discharge - GlassedThen we have the always punk fuckheads of Anal Discharge who always make chauvantism, alcoholism, drug abuse and general apathy and anarchy look like a load of fun. Their live shows are loose - I still remember their lead singer Matt glassing himself in from of 12 people at @Newtown on a tuesday night because he was bored.

Kill A Celebrity have now been banned from Club Blink (who fucking cares?) and most recently Maggotsville for their violent grind stylings, chaotic live show and loud, obnoxious, roid-munching singer.

And finally we have Bulemaconda (whos name I always fuck up) - a crazy new experimental death/grind band from the Southern Highlands. These guys showed a lot of promise last year at A Grind Before Grindmas, so get off yah fucking arses and come down early to see them.

Four grind bands for two fucking dollars. How good is that? Get down and support it, because the more people who come, the more chance there is of more $2 Grind, Punk, Crust and Hardcore gigs promoted by yours truly. In a period when a lot of grind and extreme music venues are dropping off the map (The Empire Hotel, Bar Broadway, The Annandale Hotel) getting behind shit like this is fucking important.

But more importantly, come down, get fucked up, talk shit, throw cunts around and enjoy four crazy young local bands going insane.

See yah there.

$2 Grind at the Sando

Here's some of what you can expect:
