Vent - Long Lost Human 7"

Label: Hydra Head
Year: 1995

Hydra Head numero uno. The beginning of a pretty miraculous run right?
I fell hard for Aaron Turner's taste in burly noise-core, and this record started his label off with a bang. It's a frazzled mess of chugging thuds and borax throated bellows that claws its way out from under a damaged hardcore cave in to lay waste to all in its path. Destructo rock.
The band was from Wichita, and had a demo, two songs that came out on a 7" called Ephemeral (which may or may not have actually been from their demo), and these two songs. That was it. They broke up and three fourths of them reformed as Boxer Rebellion, who also released a record on Hydra Head.
Enjoy. I do.

my dads side of the family is from wichita. people always looked at me like i was an alien with 3 heads there.if i knew there was shit going on i would have been stoked. pre-internet, what ya gonna do. not many wichita scene reports in MRR back then.

i never really remembered this record but after listening again i vaguely remember it. all i remember at the time is "that wierd guy who does that art you like is starting a record label".

hydrahead is resurrecting and releasing the new oxbow album, i am stoked. although i wish eugene would have let me design it. oh well. you lose some and you lose some.

love, phil.

Designed by mln3 designs & etc.
