Just some vids some swell chaps uploaded on the youtube thang.  Guess which band I'm in.

They also upload quite a lot of clips from other shows.  Much better than my effort with AusGrindTube....

Thanks Leigh Hawkins & Brutalnetalmadness


Grindhead Records Presents: East West Deathgrind Fest 6!!

Posted by mothereel

Blasterpieces represent!

It's here!  Christmas for those into extreme underground local talent has arrived.  Bubsy, who plays Santa in this metaphor, has done it again, or maybe he's gone done better than last year!  What a line-up!!

Showcasing a bunch of fools with instruments from a wide variety of towns and villages, this year's East West has bands from South Australia, a mighty contingent from Victoria, Queensland is represented and even a few bois from the A.C.T are coming around to make some noise.

Sydney's darlings, Ether Rag, are also launching their highly anticipated 7" so make sure you save a handful of post-beer coins to exchange for that sexy vinyl.  Grindhead Records will, of course, also have their distro with a fine selection of extreme music from around the world with maybe even a few choices being available for under $5!

I'm also playing, this time I'm filling the bass and vocals for those handsome Backpacker boys.  That should be interesting... hopefully.

Keep up to date with set times and other announcements by going to the facebook event page.

Serious Grindparty at Black Wire Records this Saturday!

Posted by Lachlan

UPDATE: Spoonfed are out. Battle Pope are in!

Grindparty at Black Wire Records!

Art As Catharsis and Black Wire Records presents GRINDPARTY! A celebration of some of the fastest and most intense music that Australia has to offer. The first GRINDPARTY! takes place on Saturday 12 May, 2012 at Black Wire Records.

Headlining the night are those lovable positive powerviolence scamps Michael Crafter - hot off their recent tour of New Zealand. They are joined by their Sunshine Coast brethern Laeirs and Vile Specimen, as well as the always-intense Spoonfed, and local merchants of dissonance Fat Guy Wears Mystic Wolf Shirt.

This awesome event could only ever happen at Black Wire Records -- one of Australia's premier underground venues that continues to support experimental, heavy and fringe music. Support the underground, and get down to this show.

Doors are at 7pm. $10 entry. Drinks are BYO, and all ages are welcome. This is a night of nuttin but blast beats, beer bongs and blazin' chongs.

Facebook event here.
