V/A - Shiny Grey Monotone Radio - Show 12

Label: N/A
Year: 2013

These compilations are a lot of fun to put together, and what started out as a group of songs to play on an internet radio show has morphed into a little pet project of mine to see how many of these I can do without repeating artists and keeping the quality level high (to me at least). This will be the 12th one I've posted, of the 21 (and counting) that reside on my computer. And I'll admit, even though there are still lots of bands I haven't included, it's getting harder to mix in the old with the new, as there's a steady stream of new, but as history is a static element...well, those selections ain't expanding. Also, while on the subject of admissions, most of the time when assembling these things I'm thinking about what would work well for exercising (I'm a total jock in case you hadn't heard), and while jogging or bench pressing anything and everything in site, these compilations are generally what I'm listening to (try and picture Richard Simmons, then add 50lbs., and that'll about paint the picture for you, a beautiful beautiful picture).
So, volume 12 of our series starts off particularly hot and nasty (not to be confused with Hot 'n Nasty...Black Oak Arkansas and Humble Pie), working it's way through a series of sludgy, heavy, gnarled jammers, before settling into some noisy hardcore, some noisy noise rock, and then some noisy post hardcore sorta stuff, before getting it's rock's off (or on, if you must), and then ending on a big ugly finale.

The bands:
Fudge Tunnel
Goes Cube
Breather Resist
Kid Kilowatt
The Night Marchers
...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead
Distorted Pony
Festering Rinyanyons
