Cows – Cunning Stunts

CCS

I honestly can’t tell how and when I discovered this album. But recently I stumbled upon a Spotify playlist I made with it, and I have listened rather much to it since.

The opening slap and crying child, is a instant attention-getter, and the following 39 minutes is catchy rocky bliss.

I rather quickly decided to obtain this album, and luckily at has just been rereleased, so it was a nobrainer getting it.

I really dig the cover, and I have a very soft spot for extensive liner notes.

Vinyl

I have stolen the images for this blog post from the discogs entry, as I’m writing this away from my own copy of the record.

Sepik – Hunt The Ghost

a3671632810_10

I thought I’d never do this… A download only release on a vinyl blog. But then again – rules are there to be broken, right?

Sepik is all about groovy riffs and catchy choruses. The lyrics deal with not being too young anymore, dealing with tinnitus and other age-related stuff. I feel a deep bond with Sepik. This is a tribute to all us middle aged noiseniks.

It was released on Jay Randall’s Grindcore Karaoke label in 2013, and has gone unnoticed by the masses ever since – undeservedly so! Hence I decided to spread the word of this ought-to-be classic!

Enjoy!

Darkthrone – Black Death and Beyond

Oh wow. I am really happy I bought this 3lp boxed monster. This is such a great collection of songs and the packaging is outstanding, Darkness Descends anyone?

I can never do this box justice, so I won’t try.

Get it if possible. Or regret it forever

Joel Grind – The Yellowgoat Sessions

20140430-165150.jpg
YES!!! Thrashy blackish metalpunk! This is Bathory worship when it’s done to perfection. Joel Grind should be a household name by now, due to his merits in Toxic Holocaust. Here he is alone and darker than ever.

I had the fortune to get my mucky claws on this lp in time, as prices are getting steadily higher.

Sore Throat – Unhindered By Talent

20140402-174701.jpg
Three Seconds Long!!! This is the lp that really defined the micro-song as a valid and beautiful genre for me. The amount of noisy drunken fun on display here is overwhelming.

“Out of tunes guitars, with broken strings, unintelligable growls, and smashed drum sticks. Unhindered by talent, but we don’t give a fuck, if you don’t fucking like it, then tough fucking luck.”

There is so much spite and venom in the lyrics, I remember being a crusty peacepunk being shocked at the anger towards D.R.I. and other bands. I just wanted everybody to be happy…

The Molecatcher and A Bow To Capital makes for well deserved breathers in all the great feedbacky racket. Both unusual but great. I still need to know more about Pete Pax.

Doom – Corrupt Fucking System

I’m happy to say that this is one fine Doom lp. Raw and vital with a filthy production. The lyrics are to the point and intense pieces of political poetry.

Instigators – New Old Now

20131208-002548.jpg
Ah. This is a gem. I love Instigators. My old chum Kenneth introduced me to them in the late 1980’s. He had a great deal of communication with the singer Andy Turner. I think I remember this lp is re-recordings of old material, to be released in Brazil?
