all in deep shit-self titled

recorded in 2002 and released on gash records in 2003. predominately "power violence" tunes, but realistically the band was also a mish-mash of whatever hardcore and metal we were listening to at the time. the line-up on this recording was james vinci, rhys, robin and myself.

wasted til death-demo

wasted til death were a band from bunbury, to my knowledge they only played live maybe once or twice. this demo would've been from maybe 07 or 08.
lots of thrash guitars (i get the feeling these guys might've been municipal waste fans) though the drumming features more flat out blast-beats than thrash metal fast beats.

the magoos-brigadë 55 demo

more scandinavian style hardcore-punk from WA. this time made by some indonesian punks living in perth. interesting lyrical content in that rather than having the usual anti-war, fuck the system content that this style of hardcore usually has, its brutal, intolerant, pro-war, pro-violence, anti-white lyrics. and with this approach somehow totally fit in with the sketchy scum-rock vibe of the punk bands they often played with (most notably the rats, whom they cover on this recording)
i've heard rumours that many of these songs may have been re-recorded and re-released a few years ago? this is the original demo recording, though i couldn't say exactly when its from as my memory is a little hazy. maybe 2003? 2002? also, if anyone has a copy the cover for this release, please get in contact.

rothgar sea of fire tape

this is the first rothgar tape (the second, "inside the glass confines" can be found earlier in this blog) from 91. quality thrash metal. this isn't quite as good as their 2nd tape and some of the changes from the metal parts to the folky bits comes across a little awkward, but its still great stuff and performed well. the members average age was around 16 years old at the time which is mind-boggling considering the quality of this stuff.

the pimps-tape

sam from the pimps was kind enough to send me a link to the all the recordings the pimps had done. this includes all the material found on the tape that was released for their last show in 2000 and a live set from the hyde park hotel.
UK82 style punk, ala the exploited etc. though on the more aggressive side.
i recall (barely, most shows were attended extremely drunk) seeing this band many times when i first moved to perth, excellent sloppy live shows where the band was as sloshed as the audience.
the drummer, corky, went on to drum for the first incarnation of the homicides (known as the dose at the time) and zane the guitarist went on to play for python, an excellent rock-n-roll band with pervy scum-rock vibe to the lyrics.
sam requested that a torrent file be uploaded for the link, you can get it here

suffer-raw violent assault tape

2011 tape released by no patience for a tour suffer had done. 7 tracks including rupture and disrupt covers. as the name implies, this is rawer and noisier than previous releases (which were all quite raw recordings anyways) more feedback and blown out recordings, but not in a way that obscures the music. my only complaint is that i wish the drums were higher in the mix, but this is a very minor complaint (its not as if the drums are inaudible) and only due to my love of hell fast drumming.
i received this recording as all songs in one long file but have split the recording into separate tracks for your convenience.

riot system-fit the image

primitive raw noisy scandi style hardcore from 96. the ep was released on 7" by south australian label spiral objective. feat. don of the rats/homicides and i think that might be mike who went on to drum for nailed down.
side A is apparently a studio recording and side B is a rehearsal room recording (hence why one of the songs is found on this ep twice) though both sides are comparable levels of rawness.
i think i personally like side B more. it seems a little faster and has a great hissy tape compression sound to it.
