Quick Reviews – September 2017

In case you missed it, we do special, short reviews now of stuff that's not up to the standards I set for full reviews. Meaning, the cover art sucks. This doesn't mean the music isn't any good, of course, but as you know, at least 1/4 of an album's presence is in its art, a […]

Ape Unit – Turd

Grindcore is dragging on its last legs.  Scratch that, it didn't have any legs over the past ten years, it was a mere torso with arms.  Now those arms are gone, and it's ground its lower half into so many surfaces it's about up to its neck, close to the brain, where it can finally […]

CASSETTE ASSAULT – Speed it Up, Slow it Down!

Yes, you are correct, it's that time again.  Time to pull out the altar that is your tape deck, whatever its size, whatever its age, though we prefer original hardware.  In fact, you know what, you're out of the cult if you don't have a deck from the 1980s, so check it right now.  Good? […]

Cassette Assault – Hit It Hard With Sludge

In the past, when we've tossed tapes purposefully at your face; sometimes it's been a hit, sometimes a miss, depending on the tape.  This time we didn't want that, we wanted it all. no misses.  As the tapes come in, as well as anything else, we're picky now, preferring to review what we see in a positive […]

Boddicker – Crime Upheaval

It's too bad this cassette is sold out and anyone who now wants to listen to it has to resort to, pfff, digital.  Boddicker, get with the times.  Listen, anything like has to be listened to on at least vinyl or cassette.  It can't be any other way, especially since they use Detroit as an […]

Infectious Garage Disease – S/T

Albums like this are incredibly hard to review.  You can't simply listen to them, toss out the score, dish out some silly words, and call it a day.  This kind of thing requires a bit of thought, because it's not your normal release.  Infectious Garage Disease was barely a footnote in the Sacramento, California punk […]

Scaredycat: run.

Wife was stoked about this.  Why?  Sticker.  We need stickers for our scooter.  Unfortunately, this sticker is not being placed there, at least not yet.  Why?  Because I was stoked too, but cold water was tossed all over my naked body.  Nothing beats some good spazz, and yep, not only the promo sheet says it, […]

Siege: Lost Session 91

Don't know Siege?  Get out of here, go back to listening to Scum with the corrected track list.  Often billed as one of the first hardcore, grindcore bands, sometimes powerviolence bands, for genre snobs, Siege were way ahead of their time, regardless of your selection at the musical buffet.  Even today, listening to the awesome Relapse […]
