Deal With It - My Body Is A Cage one sided 7"

You weren't at Deal With It's last show, that's a shame you probably don't have this 7" limited to 150 copies with their last song on it.  Michael has always professed his love of Type O Negative (even going so far as stealing their album title World Coming Down for DWI's first EP) which is very apparent in the synth/clean vocal intro to this song.

Sectarian Violence - s/t 7"

International Straight Edge supergroup, basically Never Again (minus Luke) with Nick from Coke Bust (Washington DC) on vocals and Stefan from Stay Hungry (Gothenburg) on bass.  Seeing as they're 3/5 UK I say that makes them fair game for this blog...fuck you, you want it or not?

Awesome Sludge from the South East, you can buy their MP3's from their bandcamp or, if you're a cheap fucker you can download it for free from Agoraphobic Nosebleed frontman Jay Randall's online label Grindcore Karaoke, and while you're there, check out xHaroldshitmanx, Ablach, AtomçkEvisoraxThe Atrocity Exhibit (both EPs they've got up) and Wheelchair Wheelchair Wheelchair Wheelchair who I've put up on this blog but Jay has put a link to buy their CD which I forgot to do.

Ripped To Shreds - Demo

Mind Eraser style Powerviolence from Thanet which started around the same time as Human Junk and featuring their drummer.  This was released as a tape and a free download, the tape sold out before I could get a copy, they did plan to do a second run of them but broke up before that happened.

Sesso Violento - Pacificador one sided 12"

Black Metal side project by members of Cthulhu Youth, limited to 100 copies released on US label Prison Tatt Records, at the time of posting this they do appear to have some left so act quickly if you like this.  You can get their first unreleased EP as a free download from Cthulhu Youth's blog.  Most of the lyrics are in Italian.

EDIT: I've been informed that the lyrics are actually part Portuguese and only the name is in Italian.

Etai Keshiki - Etai Or Die

Noise Punk from Leeds with female vocals, being given away as a download for now but will be self released as a tape soon.

The Lowest Form - Some Horrible Bug demo tape

This band is very secretive, so secretive that there's no song titles with this tape.  They've been compared to old Japanese bands like Gauze, which I can hear but to me they just sound like ripping 80's style Hardcore.  I don't know where they're from, although I'm guessing London what with the frequency they play there.  The front says nine songs, but that's a lie, there are only seven, maybe some of them are two songs together but with the absence of a lyric sheet you can't tell.

STAB - Demo tape

London based Straight Edge supergroup often compared to Ripcord.  Max from Hello Bastards on vocals, Nick from Abolition on drums and Luke from Never Again on bass.


EDIT: better rip on their bandcamp

Toecutter/Man Hands split 7"

Toecutter is Hangover Heartattack all growned up.  The future of Man Hands is uncertain as Gareth has just left to do the refomed November Coming Fire full-time again.  I was at their last show in Margate a couple weeks ago but had to leave before they played as the show started late and I had to get the last train that went anywhere near me, I only found out later it was their last show with Gareth, bum, oh well, at least I got to see them three times in their short run.  The song Paedo Bikini on the Man Hands side is about the chainstore Primark selling padded bikinis aimed at prepubescent girls

A post in which I gush about how bloody brilliant Never Again were and bitch about Holy Roar and Thirty Days Of Night

Some of the best bands had the shortest life spans. Never Again from Canterbury, Kent existed between Summer 2009 and Autumn 2010, two demo tapes, an EP, two split 7”s and several jaunts around Europe, easily the most popular Straight Edge UKHC band since xCanaanx. Around the time they announced they were breaking up there was some rumours about Edge breaking, but all the members have gone on to do other Straight Edge bands (vocalist Luke now plays bass in STAB and the rest are in Norse myth obsessed Holy Terrorists Wayfarer), so nyer. Before they broke up they released a discography LP on Holy Roar, who I have a love/hate relationship with, love because they let you download the songs from the records they sell on their website but hate because they also give the option of selling MP3s separate from the records and continue after the record is sold out. Personally I believe that if the physical record is out of print you should just give the music away for free. Being a record collector I just don’t understand the mentality of people who pay to download music, but I guess you could argue that money goes to support the artists, and at least they aren’t as cuntish as Thirty Days of Night who sell MP3s through iTunes and get blogs taken down for daring to put up download links to their releases, even if they are long out of print. Anyway, back to Never Again, there's one song that isn’t on their discography LP, the demo version of Enough Is Enough from the Repulsed tape, they re-recorded it on the Pressure 7” and that’s the one they went with.

Blight - Master

You know that band Cthulhu Youth everyone's bumming right now, well this is the singers old Holy Terror band.  They used to noise/circuit bending stuff between songs when they played live.  I saw their first show at an all ages gig at Tap N Tin in Chatham, not the best place to debut an experimental Hardcore band in front of a bunch of sixteen-year-olds waiting for Hang The Bastard to play.  I only ever heard about them playing one other show at The 12 Bar in London, I'm not sure if they played many shows after that.  This was given away as a free download.

Deathskulls/Armed Response Unit - split 7"

Thrashcore from Essex and London.  So London has LBU, Essex has EBD (Essex Beatdown), and like most of the LBU bands, the EBD bands suck, with the exception of Deathskulls, in fact it always baffled me that a scene with such a hard-on for beatdowns accepted a band that played so fast like Deathskulls.

Walk The Plank - Thrashgig 7"s

Pirate themed Hardcore from Liverpool featuring the vocals on Ian Leck of Voorhees and Sick-Fuckin-O.  Before they put out their LP on Dead & Gone they released four 7"s simultaneously on Thrashgig (run by Foxy from SSS).  Each 7" featured an original song and a cover of a classic Punk/Hardcore song (Night Stalker by Impact Unit, So Ends Our Night by Last Rights, Depression by Black Flag and a version of Nausea by X with swearier lyrics). All the 7"s came in gatefold sleeves and featured a different part of a story.

Thrash War comp 7"

Powerviolence/Fastcore comp with Leicestershire's Brain Dead and Boston Not Boston's Patient Zero being all serious and Harrogate's Valhalla Pacifists and Surrey's Worker And Parasite bringing the lulz.

Deny Everything - Through With This 7"

No, not the German Melodic Hardcore band, this was a straight up fast Hardcore band to come out of London's LBU clique (which I'm told stands for London Black Up, Weed used to be a big thing in the London Hardcore scene, not that you'd think that now with all the London Straight Edge varsity jackets you see at shows these days).  This was their only release, they were also meant to to a split with Injury Time but IT never bothered to do their side so DE just put up their tracks for free download via their MySpace page.

Armed Response Unit - No Point In Calling The Cops, They Ain't Coming 7"

Crusty Thrashcore from London featuring members of Defcon Zero, Palehorse, Abjure, Kneejerk and Million Dead.

Self Destruct - This Is Not Your World 7"

D.I.Y. Hardcore from Leeds.

More Margate Mosh

Jealous - S/T 7"

Noisey Straight Edge Hardcore from the West Midlands, ended when the singer broke Edge, continuing with a new singer under the name Let It Die.

The Dukes Of Nothing - Half Evil 7"

London based ex-members of Iron Monkey and Orange Goblin playing Sludey Aggro Punk.  B-side is a raucous cover of Bastard Son Of A Loaded Gun by GG Allin.  After they split up Dean went on to play in instrumental stoners Capricorns before moving to Canada with his wife, Tony still works with Southern Records (and handles PR for band on Hydrahead and Southern Lord in the UK) as well as being a co-vocalist in Welsh hate mob 33.  Embarrassingly Doug's name turned up on a leaked list of BNP members, he was listed as an "Activist".
