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.
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.
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!
Eat shit and buy
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?

I love the cover. Go Fatty!
Here we have one of Justin Broadrick’s more obscure releases. Released in 1990 and sounding a lot like Head Of David’s Dustbowl with a punkier edge. It might be a paranthesis in JK’s massive output, but I like it anyway. It has a more organic feel than Godflesh, but with the same industrial heaviness and deep sense of desolation. It reminds me of Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle’s novel The Mote In God’s Eye, especially the sentence: “The industrial ugliness of the endless cityscape”.
Dave Cochran who plays bass and sings was the founder(?) of Head Of David, and Scott Kiehl the drummer was in Slab.

Various – Violent Noise Party: International Blast Fighter Compilation 7″
This is an absolute must have for the picky punk and grindfreak. Insect Warfare, Netjajev SS, In Disgust and plenty of other good, fast and heavy bands all in the space of a 7″ record.
Insect Warfare treat us with a brutal cover of the classic Celtic Frost Into the Crypts of Rays, and Rainbow of Death gives us one of the more bizarre sampled intros.
I have nothing but praise for this compilation, who needs 80 minutes, when 15 will do?
