Doomriders / Boris - Long Hair and Tights - split

Label: Daymare
Year: 2006

Limited run of 1000 on (double) vinyl, at a point when Doomriders were shit hot. So if you blinked you missed it. The record documents (and documents it well) a show that Doomriders and Boris played together in Japan back on Halloween night of 2006.
Doomriders live have a much more attacking style than on record (which is admittedly, pretty attacking), and their Motorhead inspired intro sets the tone for their furious blend of d-beat hardcore and Lemmy's wart sweat. On record I would always hear a slight Danzig influence creeping in, but not here. No, this is flat out smoking at 100mph. Doomriders understand the concept of come out swinging, and don't let up...this record doesn't let up. Boris. Sometimes they bring the heat, and sometimes they put their heads up each others asses on some sort of quest for meaningful art. I try to like them, and there are moments when I really do, but then they sabotage that goodwill with some self-indulgent "ambient passage" straight out of the Windham Hill catalog. Luckily for me (us), and maybe because of their co-headliners, they stick to  kicking out the jams at this show. They give you some of the glacial art-sludge and some of the high octane straight rippers, which play well off each other, but they keep the intensity high. I'm happy to report, the "good" Boris showed up to blow your head off that night.
If you can find the double lp, be ready to shell out some dollars (or yen...or whatever shells you trade for goods and services), but as you'll hear here, it's worth it. Totally worth it.


Rebreather - Sunflower

Label: Nice Life
Year: 2008

That rolling, cycling, heavy rock that goes for the big riff and bigger payoff. You know what I mean?
A song is generally built on a stuttering groove of a rhythm, and the guitar line snakes around before everyone locks into that massive swing. It's a loud hybrid of Knut, Barkmarket, Mastodon, American Heritage, and mid-period Cave In.
The results can prove mesmerizing, the kind of thing that you can get lost in listening to until that crunching guitar wakes you back up and reminds you continue along with your bedroom head-banging.
They do a Lungfish cover here, if that tells you anything.
For a band that started out a as pretty straight forward sludgy post-hardcore outfit, they certainly evolved into something far more interesting and intriguing.

Alice Donut - Mule

Label: Alternative Tentacles
Year: 1990

Another, like Flipper below, milestone in underground music that has cast a long shadow but remained out of the NPR retrospective crush of "important releases of your youth...real or imagined".
But listen to hear where Nirvana might have lifted that "Smells Like Teen Spirit" riff on the song "Roaches In The Sink" prior to giving it their own Pixies punch.
Listen to "Crawlpappy" to hear Alice Donut turn down a more muscular (if not tongue-in-cheek) alleyway and give birth to the band Crawlpappy (thank you, by the way).
Listen to them clean up some of the junk-punk clutter of the first two albums in favor of a leaner, meaner sound that hones in on a messy, heavier melodic focus.
This is the version of Alice Donut that I get excited about, and frankly, you would probably love to be around when I'm excited. It's a real hoot. So, let's hope this one excites you as well (not a boner joke, unless you think that's funny).
Jello Biafra calls them "the missing link between REM and Butthole Surfers". FYI.

Flipper - Gone Fishin'

Label: Subterranean
Year: 1984

Hasn't this "difficult" second album by Flipper already been posted here? Cause I looked, and it ain't.
And "difficult" by Flipper standards actually means "more normal" by most other band's standards. Like, this record is less about taking the then nascent hardcore speed and bravado down a peg by squeezing every last ounce of feedback-coated agony out of each twisted riff. It's still demented. It's still further evidence that Ted Falconi should be lauded as one of the first wave of hardcore's (patent pending) greatest guitar players. It's still Flipper, the band who basically created a whole new way to fuck up your hearing with a blissful mess of antagonism, joy, and blasting noise. Most definitely the most influential band to have NOT received the fawning documentary treatment (no doubt starring: Keith Morris, Ian MacKaye, Jello Biafra, Henry Rollins, and for some reason a cast member of TJ Hooker to be named later) yet. I'm sure it's just a matter of time until Pitchfork decides that they are "important" enough to be lured into headlining the third stage of one of their festivals, which will roll right into some beard-o retroactively proclaiming them the "greatest thing he's ever heard" and consequently launching the World's Saddest Kickstarter Fund (also patent pending) to pay for his movie.
Not that Flipper don't deserve the plaudits. Anything "weird" you've heard that was created post-1990 has inevitably been in some way, shape, or form, influenced by their much more weird weirdness.
So good.


Boulder - Reaped In Half: Act I and Act II

Label: Tee Pee
Year: 2002

Unapologetic and unrepentant, straight up heavy fucking metal. Like or don't, Boulder will continue partying your face off regardless.
What, you don't like guitar solos? You don't like songs that advise the wanton abandonment of all that is holy in pursuit of cranking the proverbial "It" up? What's wrong with you dude? Shit.
Members have been in, or worked with: Gates Of Slumber, Hangnail, Abdullah, Midnight, Sloth, and most likely a Denny's Restaurant in the greater metropolitan Cleveland area.

Sweet Diesel - The Kids Are Dead

Label: Engine
Year: 1995

We've covered Sweet Diesel on a couple different occasions here, which may or may not still be available, I don't know. But we've told you about how mysterious they were to me during their existence because their records were hard to come by but their name popped up everywhere. We've given you their pedigree. We've described how their  sound has one foot in hardcore and the other confidently planted in rock-n-roll. So, we figure it's about time to get this, their first full length, out there.
This one leans more hardcore, albeit hardcore from the Wreck-Age roster of NYHC, so think Die 116, Mind Over Matter, and maybe a bit of Yuppicide. But, it gets a shot of catchy, borderline pop punk a la Garden Variety. Nothing cloying or sing-songy, this is definitely coming at you full throttle, but there are moments of light to accent the dark mood. I really like the way they balance out the catchier stuff with the burlier stuff, it works in a way that seemed kinda normal in the mid-90's, but not so much since then. X nostalgic X.
There's a new band featuring Zach Kurland of Sweet Diesel and Nate Wilson of Devoid Of Faith (among a thousand others) called Green Dragon that's getting into some pretty sweet riff heavy stoner psych. Worth a listen.

Thug - Broken 7"

Label: Bovine
Year: 1993

Merry Christmas and shit. Here's two songs for you to play tonight at your Christmas Eve family gathering (unless you don't celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus H. Christ, which is an issue that I can't possibly solve in this forum).
Maximum overdrive noise rock from the the Bovine Records mastermind himself, Sean Wipfli (formerly of Pachinko). All hate, no light. Bass turned up to one million. Distortion applied to every instrument in the vicinity of the recording, and possibly further. Bordering on straight up power violence type sludgy hardcore.

UDAV - Creepy New Career

Label: self released
Year: 2014

Quick, how many noise rock bands can you name from Croatia?
Lucky for you, the band has submitted this, their new record, for you to get acquainted with in an effort to bolster musical tourism to the former Balkan States. And if I'm correct, this band is from the Istrian peninsula between the Bay of Kvarner and the Gulf of Trieste (thanks Wikipedia!) which appears to be a beautiful part of the world. I'm ready to go! We could arrange a reverse-tour whereupon the band stays in place, and the fans come to them! Genius!
Musically, UDAV occupies that space right around Big'N, Mount Shasta, White Drugs, and Qui. They even flirt around with some late period SST weirdness for good measure! It bounces and bobs around before slicing across your jaw with a series of haymakers. They can be deceptively burly in the spaces between riffs, when the song dynamics start and stop to accentuate the punch.
I think that you will like this one. It's got the elements you want, and gives them a new charge. Plus, now you can say, "oh yeah, I was into the first wave of Croatian Noise Rock back when it was still underground". Which is the point, isn't it?


Brigitte Roussel - Amber Hole

Label: Double Hallucinative
Year: 2014

This was submitted to us by the artist herself, and while I slept on it for a bit too long, I finally have given it a few listens, and am glad I did so.
Not my usual forte this one, the music operates within genres that I find hard to describe or articulate. There's more of an overall "feel" than a particular adjective I could use. The whole album creates one massively spooky vibe...that I like.
I never watched Twin Peaks, and really don't care for David Lynch in general, but...I'm going out on a limb here and saying that this sounds like someone took the theme music of that show and distorted it's chamber pop base into a distant electrical storm that slowly spreads itself across the far horizon. It's a solo album, but there is plenty of instrumentation to fill out the nooks and crannies of each slow burning freak out. Vocals are of the detached, ethereal sort, and they come and go like smoke filtering through the room.
Early morning or late night listens are encouraged. The shoegaze/industrial/noise/baroque/drones here can be hypnotically beautiful or just as easily, disturbingly harsh. It's adventurous music which rewards those who are up for the ride.

Gray's Top 20 of 2014

By "popular" demand (aka Slanderbob asking for it to include in his next podcast) her lies the bodies of the stuff I most listened to that was released in 2014. Not including all the stuff I temporarily forgot. Not including all the reissues or new versions of old shit. Not including the fact that what I MOSTLY listened to this year was a combination of the same bands I've been listening to since 1985 and a smattering of Pusha T.

But here, in alphabetical order, are the records that I can recall making the year better.

1. American Heritage - Prolapse
2. Arabrot - I Modi
3. The Austerity Program - Beyond Calculation
4. The Blind Shake - Breakfast Of Failures
5. Corrosion Of Conformity - IX
6. Dasher - Go Rambo
7. Eyehategod - Eyehategod
8. Godflesh - A World Only Lit By Fire
9. Hammerhead - Global Depression
10. Hawks - Hawks
11. Music Blues - Things Haven't Gone Well
12. Old Man Gloom - The Ape Of God
13. PowertakeOFF - Unhinged
14. Roomrunner - Separate

17. Sleaford Mods - Divide and Exit
18. Superheater - Something Sticky
19. Survival Knife - Loose Power
20. Young Widows - Easy Pain

What did I miss? Will Slander dare to post his?!

Sloth - Trick Or Treat Time With Octi

Label: self released
Year: 2004

Sloth run that super wide gamut from blown-the-fuck-out super sludge to power electronics styled noise, and "everything in between" (which has yet to be identified by any record store clerk anywhere)
Like if Suppression and Rusted Shut got together to jam on a Godflesh joint, and then had the guys from Spazz write some lyrics for it.
Their discography is impenetrable, such that I would be suspect if even the parents of Sloth(s) have every release. There's well over a hundred and counting, including some higher profile splits from the Golden Second Wave Of Powerviolence (circa 1996) with Floor, Noothgrush, Boulder, Cattlepress, Gob, Hangnail, Corrupted, Fistula, Rwake, and on and on and on. So, why I chose this particular one to post? Maybe because this one has the song 'Dwid's Bride Invited My Future Wife To A Sleep-Over' (spoiler alert...she said no).

These 12 songs actually work together well as one 14 minute piece since they all employ the same basic rhythm and instrumentation (part of which I guess is a cymbal but sounds more like someone is releasing gas [and not as in farting, but actually opening and closing a pressurized valve]).

Blood Sun Circle - Bloodiest/Sunniest

Label: Hex
Year: 2014

3/4 of the band Engineer doing music that eschews the metallic suffocation of that band's attack, and instead broadens their scope by zooming out and letting things breath in a deep breath of what we used to call "Neur-Isis". Meaning, those big, expansive slow builds that rely more on echo and reverb than they do on fuzz and distortion. Still abrasive, but it takes a longer view on things. There are elements of post punk goth in there, some Neurosis big riffs, some Young Widows-ish picking, and a general pall of darkness over the whole thing.
Sometimes I'm not in the mood for this kind of thing, but today I was. Plus, that's an undeniably great album title, right?

Space Witch - S/T

Year : 2014
Label : Orchestrated Dystopia

 I get very picky about stoner rock, doom metal, etc.. Don't get me wrong, I love it when it's done right and the band that is doing it brings something new to the table. Let's face it, it's not that hard to imitate Black Sabbath. Every genre gets over saturated sooner or later.  So with that said.. SPACE WITCH kicks it up a couple of notches. UFOMAMUT (whom I really like) has done similar sounding stuff, but not with this kind of ferocity. Hawkwind Meets Sleep Meets EYEHATEGOD maybe? .. This being instrumental is a nice touch, just good heavy space doom.

Tragic Mulatto - Italians Fall Down And Look up your dress

Year: 1989
Label : Alternative Tentacles

To say Tragic Mulatto were a spectacle to see live, is an understatement. I was lucky enough to see them once, and I was both mesmerized and oddly turned on in the most creeped out kind of way.

The original release of this was a collection of two LP's "Hot Man Pussy" & "Locos por el Sexo".For some reason,  two of the tracks from "Locos..." record were omitted from this collection, I have re-added them at the end). There are some live photo's included in the rar. Be WARNED.. (NSFW),  they are included to show you what TM was all about live.. a complete "FREAKSHOW".. and I loved it.

Anybody have a clue where I could find a good video of one their shows? You tube has much of nothing, and I can only imagine that if the show I saw, was uploaded to Youtube.. it would be pulled down almost as fast as it was uploaded.


Boredoms - Soul Discharge

Year : 1989
Label : Shimmy Disc

Not much needs to be said about this record. It's a noise rock classic and should be in every noise rock collection. Hoping for a vinyl re-issue one day.

Good Throb - Fuck Off

Year : 2014
Label : Bandcamp

By the end of this song record, you will have become tens times more punk rock than anyone else you know.  This London outfit is both, noisey and angry with great Gang of Four-esque bass-lines throughout. One of my favorite discoveries of 2014.

HONOR ROLE - Complete Discography

*1983 Demo
*It Bled Like A Stuck Pig
* Live @ CBGB (Mp4)
*Final Show (Mp4)

I have been re-uploading some dead links the last couple of posts. When I came across the couple of Honor Role posts that were dead, I decided to put this together. This is the mother-lode friends, with everything that was released and 2 full shows. Merge records released "Album" which included their last LP "Rictus", their first LP "The Pretty Song", the "Craig Olive" single, "Jank" (the b side of  "Purgarory" single) & the "Judgement Day" single. The extra stuff here is their original 1983 Demo, & 2 full live shows in Mp4 format ripped from youtube. 

I grew up watching these guys play, and also had the pleasure of opening for them a couple of times when I was a little Virginia Beach skate punk. Honor Role is one of those bands on a long list that should have had more exposure. They were one of  the first bands I witnessed change from being a hardcore band into something truly different and original. One of the last times I saw them play they were opening for The Rollins Band, I believe it was The Rollins Band's Sixth show ever on their first tour. It seemed Henry had some issue with them, he made a couple of friendly jabs at them during his set, like I said they were friendly jabs, but jabs nonetheless. I never thought to ask Penn about that. 

Honor Role soon broke up after that show, and Penn went on to form Butterglove, and then the mighty Breadwinner. Sometimes I forget how many great bands and people I got to bump elbows with growing up in the 80's hardcore scene. Again, Honor Role was an incredible band and if you have never heard them, you owe it to your ears to check them out. - Slander

BLACK FLAG : LIVE 84 (The Movie)

Originally available through SST as a VHS (they did a very limited run of these), now the whole show is up on You Tube, and in my opinion a better set than the 58 min DVD of  them playing in Europe. This the same show that birthed the "LIVE 84" record. This is Black Flag in the raw!! Amazingly tight at the peak of the Rollins era. If you've never seen this you are in for a treat. I made an MP4 (I re-encoded  it at 16:10 wide screen aspect ratio) and it's yours for the taking.

Firewater - Get Off The Cross ...

Label : Jetset
Year : 1996

When I hear of a band that is comprised of members of other bands and then hear the term "Supergroup" tagged on to it, I usually end up highly disappointed. That is not the case with Firewater's first release "Get Off The Cross, We Need More Wood For The Fire". It seems to me that every Firewater record that came after just did not measure up to it. The other Firewater records aren't bad records by any means, as far as songwriting goes the songs are great, production is a whole other argument and I think some fans of Firewater would tend to agree with me about that. I have always felt they sound better stripped down, some of the production on other Firewater records almost destroy the songs (especially when you see Firewater live,) That's just this listeners smelly opinion.

This is one of my top 100 / desert island records. I had always thought Tod A was an amazing songwriter and lyricist, this record just further confirms that (and way beyond of what I thought he was capable of ).  When you combine Tod A's genius songwriting and lyrical  skills with the incredible guitar playing of Denison, it's magical. Duane Denison's playing reminds of Robert Quine at times on this record.

"Get Off The Cross .." at the time was uncharted territory for Tod A and company, pulling from lots of different influences and styles that up until Firewater, had never really been attempted. Yes, you get bits and pieces of what made Copshootcop and Jesus Lizard amazing bands, but you get so much more with this record. Sadly this was the only record that paired Tod and Duane together, I would have loved to have gotten at least one more record with the two of them collaborating.

* Bonus tracks with this download :
"Too Many Angels"   (Live on KEXP)
"The Man On The Burning Tightrope"  (Live on KEXP)


The Blind Shake - Get Youth 7"

Label: Depression House
Year: 2014

Let's take a break from Sub Pop for a moment so that I can bring you this public service announcement: If The Blind Shake are coming anywhere within 45 nautical miles (or as the crow flies) of your domicile or base of operations, you are hereby required to attend their concert event.

I went to see them last night, with admittedly no expectations. I have enjoyed their records, and think they have a cool take on the unhinged, wild, garage-y type rock music that is in a revival currently. The baritone guitar and dueling vocals are a unique touch. But, what I didn't understand until last night was how incredibly intense the live version of that sound is. And believe me, it's fucking nonstop attack. They come, they see, they conquer, they bolt. They leave you with ringing ears and visions of three shaved head dudes in semi-matching black sweatshirts with cryptic duct-taped symbols on them dancing around your hung over head the next morning. They bring the thunder, and deliver a massively tight and focused wallop right about your very face-hole.  I also heard a little of their Minneapolis brethren Hammerhead (and Vaz too) in their sound for the first time last night. Listening back this morning, I'm not sure how that eluded me until that point.

Bottom line is, don't be like me and lump this band into a sound/scene that you may have preconceived notions about...because I'm here to tell you, this is one of the best working bands today. Go see them and report back!

  23. Blue Noise-Sok od malina

Šarlo Akrobata were seminal Yugoslav post punk band from Belgrade. Short lived but extremely influented.

Sexa-legendary croatian noise rock band from 80's/90's, this song is from their legendary album „No Sleep Till Pussy/Fuck Piction“

Demencija prekoks-obscure and very radical noise band from Požarevac in Serbia.

Anita-croatian noise/punk band from Split, city in Dalmatia

Mamojebac-great midlle 90's noise band from island Krk in Croatia

Why Stakla are considered to be one of the best noise rock bands from the early/mid 90’s in Croatia and their two recorded albums with the key releases of independent publishing at the time (Kekere Aquarium, Lunatic, Helidon…)

Automassage-amazing band with members from Austria, Slovenia and Bosnia. Their both albums are great

Hexenbrutal, slovenian duo band, from their second full length album „Giant“ which they publish for label God Bless This Mess, check it here:

Little Radojica-this is mix of yugoslavian music so I must put also one band from Montenegro. Also lot a people from ex Yugoslavia dont know about this band which publish just one record and disbanded because one of their member make suicide (when he was 19 year old!), very dark and depressive music but in same time brilliant melodies.

Gone Bald-Noble Noise rock, "born in '94 in zagreb croatia,moved to amsterdam holland in '94,,,which makes it 20 years now,,,"fighting the windmills",,and the almost complete ignorance of the "scene" here and around the world. one of the reasons for many line up changes throughout the years is exactly that ignorance that brought basically disappointment,frustration, amazing song from thier last record „Drama Rock“, chech it here:

Finska-name of this band mean „Finland“, they come from city Bjelovar, very good instrumental band

### one more croatian band from city Sisak, song from their second EP

Mnjenje Formed in 2012. by the members of few long-running Belgrade bands, Mnjenje combines hc/punk energy and DIY ethics with repetitive krautrock rhythms, loud guitars, tons of feedback, spiced with jazz/fusion details.

Nikki Louder Slovenian noise-rockers Nikki Louder are a prime example of a band that is so relentless and passionately addicted to what they do. And in combination with their undisputable musical qualities this is what earned them a place among the acts gladly supported by Moonlee Records. Check Moonlee records here:

Presing this band from Belgrade exist from 1990, they have new album called „Neurocream“ but this song is from their amazing album „600 Nebo“ which is for me Top 10 of post-war production in ex Yugoslavia.

Pessimistic Lines punk noise band from Sarajevo, Bosnia

Tigrova Mast "Toshiro Mifune meets Omar Sharif in Abu Dabi. Blood, sweat, tears, heavy licquor, sufi mysticism and extreme feelings. Riding on the desert worms. Removing the layers of reality without photoshop!!! Sufi trance punk!!!!!!!!

Udav Noise blast from Istra, beautiful part of Croatia

Very Expensive porno movie nasty hard core/noise/punk band from Rijeka in Croatia

Zidar Betonsky was industrial/noise/electro act from Split/Croatia. Band recorded many different materials during 1995.-2000. for theatre, performances and live acts.

Suns if i make compilation without band from Macedonia, somebody from there will kill me :) So, here we are, Suns great band from Skopje. Their sound was more under influence of Husker Du, maybe this song is too poppy for this mix, sorry

Čao Pičke bizarre slovenian post punk band from 80's, more about them, you can find here:

Blue Noise i was in secondary school, when I met Robert; he was drummer in this great local band from city Banja Luka on north of Bosnia; he pass me lot a good cassettes and I start to change wiew on music.

Thanks for chance to make this mix, if you want to know more about yugoslavian music, you can listen my radio show on: ( my radio show is 2 times per month).

Label : We Empty Rooms 
Year : 2011 

Thundaaaah! is the perfect name for this. Thundering heavy sounds from this Australian Bass and Drums Duo. I've been playing this one a lot over the weekend. Great record start to finish.

L7 - Sub Pop Singles Club 7"

Label: Sub Pop
Year: 1990

Singles Club #15
This will be the last one of these today...five is enough for now. There are still plenty more to come, but five will do it for now.
So, if you are going to nominate a song for the prototypical "grunge" entry into the space time capsule that gets launched to star Gliese 445, then opening track 'Shove' just might be it. Both that, and the b-side of this 7" would also appear later on the 'Smell The Magic' lp (the cd version...only 'Shove' is on the original 12" version [music nerd]). Hot shit, no doubt.


Fugazi - Sub Pop Singles Club 7"

Label: Sub Pop
Year: 1989

Singles Club #14
The Singles Club closed out 1989 with the December release of this Fugazi 7" that scorches as Fugazi were wont to do at that point. But, no doubt, subscribers were probably a little bummed to find Dischord Records releasing their own version of these 3 songs as the 'Three Songs' 7"shortly after this version came out. Doesn't diminish the power of these tunes, nor the timeless brilliance of the band, but fair've probably already got these somewhere.
Sidebar: is the rhythm section of Joe Lally and Brendan Canty the best rhythm section since John Paul Jones and John Bonham? (rhetorical question)


Honeymoon Killers - Sub Pop Singles Club 7"

Label: Sub Pop
Year: 1989

Singles Club #13

Blues damaged noise rock that bears a likeness to (and shares DNA with) Pussy Galore, Boss Hog, John Spencer Blues Explosion, and Action Swingers. Main Killer Jerry Tell joined the Chrome Cranks after this band dissolved. So, if you like that New York City version of Cramps-style skuzz rock, then these two songs are going to do you just fine today.


Lonely Moans - Sub Pop Singles Club 7"

Label: Sub Pop
Year: 1989

Singles Club #12
Lonely Moans were a dark horse entry into the Singles Club. Unless you were balls deep in the Tupelo Recording Company's catalog, chances are you hadn't heard of them prior to this record either (admittedly, they also had an Amphetamine Reptile 7" too...but that flew under my radar as well). But, they certainly fit the bill of grungy, wah-soaked riffs that combine some Fluid with some Mudhoney. An underrated little gem, and further proof that there was a time when you could buy things simply based on the record label they were released on.


Lazy Cowgirls - Sub Pop Singles Club 7"

Label: Sub Pop
Year: 1989

Singles Club #11
Hollywood by way of Indiana punkers Lazy Cowgirls were one of those Flipside bands that I would read about alongside Sandy Duncan's Eye and stuff well before I actually heard them (blame that on a "bad" band name I guess). But, if yo want the expressway to my heart, put a Misfits cover on your record...that'll get me. And it got me.
Ramones by way of Fear with a touch of garage rock just cause.


Big Dick - S/T

Label : Dirt Cult
Year : 2014

A weird mix of influences on this release from Canadian band "Big Dick". Another Bass and Drums duo. I"m hear Big Business, Death From Above 1979, and at times I'm hearing Nation of Ulysses. They named themselves after a Nomeansno song so, it's worth checking out, not mind blowing, but not bad either. An interesting collision of  DC / West Coast sounds.  Might grow on me with some more listens.
