Natural Order - S/T 7"

So Deal With It broke up, Mike moved to Wales, started this new band, also joined another established UKHC band who I won't mention because I think they've outstayed their welcome.  Mike would always say at DWI shows that he basically got into Hardcore via Nu-Metal as a teenager so it makes sense that he'd start a new band paying tribute to the bands around in the 90's who fell into the grey area between Nu-Metal and Hardcore.  Buy it.

Endless Grinning Skulls - Fear, Ignorance, Control 7"

Raging Hardcore from Nottingham like Poison Idea run into G.I.S.M. featuring members of Heresy, Army Of Flying Robots and Geriatric Unit.  Available from Viral Age Records.
I have a massive amount of respect for the guys who played in Heresy and Ripcord in the 80's and rather than follow the current trend of grabbing hold of a couple of random session musicians and doing half arsed reunion tours asking for far too much money, they've actually started new bands like EGS, Geriatric Unit & Violent Arrest and put in the effort to make them sound actually good.

Castrato Attack Group/Etai Keshiki - split tape

Two Noise Rock bands from Leeds, was available on Norman Records but after checking before posting this I just found out it's sold out, maybe they'll repress it, maybe they won't.
Also I'd like to apologise to Daria from Etai Keshiki for thinking you were a very Metrosexual looking man.

Boris - Call Me 04234 63376 12"

If you've been living under a rock for the last fifteen years, Boris are a Stoner Rock/Drone/occasionally Hardcore band from Tokyo who looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove the Melvins.  This EP was done sometime in the mid nineties when apparently they used to be a four piece, Atsuo, their drummer was originally the singer before Takeshi came in and took over on bass/lead vocals.  This record is a massive nod towards Melvins' Eggnog EP.

SSS with Frank Sidebottom - Skate And Destroy 7"

Given away free with the first hundred of SSS's The Dividing Line LP on Earache, the asked now sadly deceased (you know he is, he really is) family friendly comedian Frank Sidebottom.  I first remember seeing Frank on the Saturday morning children's  program 8:15 From Manchester and being slightly nonplussed by his big paper mache head that he never took off and Little Frank, a venquilitrist dummy version of himself.  Frank provides intros to most of the songs and a song about skating at the end of the 7".
