"16 tracks of Yorkshire grindviolence in 20 minutes" from this unruly mob. 500 copies on heavy 180g black vinyl, wrapped in a full-colour gatefold sleeve.
Oh, there's something new by Homostupids out. Ok then. Here's what the label (Outsider) says about it: "This time Cleveland kings of Skull Music return with a tape compilation of their noisy, primitive and brainless garage punk infected EPs plus unreleased live set on the B side. Yep, we're talkin' about American greatest rock 'n' roll band here so don't sleep on this."
The Hipshakes have apparently been a band for 14 years. 14 years! Being a punk band. Fair play. And now they have two albums coming out at once.
Here's "T-Shirt" taken from "Sounds We Found".
And here is "My Confession" taken from "Maximum Growth and Vigour", an album recorded by MJ from Hookworms.
Both albums are released by SMF Records, with more details on the Bandcamp page below.
Horror Pain Gore Death Productions are releasing a fairly whopping double CD from Japanese death-doom manglers Coffins on June 9th. It compiles a bunch of vinyl-only tracks, including material from their splits with Noothgrush, Sourvein, Stormcrow and Hooded Menace.
Good news: the new Cloud Rat LP is about a month away. Says IFB records: "Another epic full length dose of Cloud Rat's signature blend of heavy HC, grinding filth, and pure venom, this time adding Brandon Hill on noise duties." It's a co-release between IFB, Halo Of Flies, React With Protest, Moment of Collapse and 7 Degrees Records.
Baxter Stockman are a brilliantly horrible noise-rock band from Finland. They are playing some gigs across England with the simmilarly horrible but somewhat different-sounding Art Of Burning Water. Go and see them if you can.
