Slur 2

Mastering Slur “Demo 2015” on Quality Control HQ Records.

“New UK band channels Early Swedish Kängpunk, Finnish and Polish hardcore punk ala Destruktions, Siekiera with a touch of Mob 47. Members of Detergents, No, Good Throb, Arms Race, Obstruct, and The Flex wanted to create politically infused anti-war songs to pogo to complete with phaser pedal and stomping drums to smash the state to.

The cassette comes with a screen printed sleeve by Max Harper with art by Guillem ‘El Muro’ of Una Bèstia Incontrolable.”

Snob 2

Mixing Snob “S/T (2nd)”.

“Finally the long awaited follow up to SNOB’s debut 7″ from last year. This time around 4 tracks of aggressive distorted hardcore somewhere in between RUDIMENTARY PENI and USA CONFLICT. The songwritting has improved drastically, moving the band away from their infuences and finding them in their own realm. A vital part of the current London scene and a must hear.”

NO

Mastering NO “Treating People Like They Don’t Exist” on La Vida Es Un Mus Records.

“London’s NO finally unleash their third vinyl offering. 8 songs in barely 13 minutes. Ferocious dissonant hardcore focused in intensity and all-out rage. Non stop hardcore showing the band at their peak. References to Midwest USA hardcore are often used to describe NO but while not completely off the mark they are just one of the many points of reference for this rather complicated band. NO are another living proof of how great the current UK hardcore crop is.

The album comes in a full colour sleeve designed by the greatest Ralph Simmonds and including a heavy weight 11″x11″ lyric insert.”

Good Throb

Mastering Good Throb “Live on WFMU” on Muscle Horse Records.

“A rambunctious live session recorded in April 2014 by the band Good Throb in New Jersey, NJ, USA, at the radio station called WFMU. ‘Live throb’ consists of 8 songs spanning both singles, a comp track and their recent LP, plus a lovingly butchered Flux of Pink Indians cover. It was patiently engineered by Serge Z. Good Throb was extremely hungover during the recording of these tracks, so it sounds rawer and more demented than usual.”

Mixing Snob.

“A six track record, formidable debut, clocking in at 12 minutes from a newish London band featuring members of Good Throb, Skylark, Family Outing and lots of others. Biggest comparison here is probably Rudimentary Peni, all creepy bass lines and subject matter imbued with the rage of anyone living under the regime of Boris Johnson and terminal street harassment. A literal hail of rage, snarly guitar, 1-2 1-2 Actually fuck-you drums, with astoundingly angry female vocals. Ones to watch.”

 

Frau

Mastering Frau “Punk is My Boyfriend” EP on Static Shock Records.

“Static Shock Records gets the honour of releasing the debut three track 7″ from London feminist punks Frau who feature members of Woolf and Good Throb. They released the much loved 8 track 10 minute demo on Tuff Enuff Records in late 2013 (which has now been reissued on LP by Dead Beat Records) and now return with three more short blasts of discordant and furious noise. ‘Punk Is My Boyfriend’ is a dirty and scratchy cut with pounding drums and an insistent guitar hook. It comes over like a mix of Pre ‘Cut’ Slits, Huggy Bear and Kleenex. ‘Snakeskin’ is possibly the only song in the world that could have appeared on both Crass’ ‘Bullshit Detector’ and any Kill Rock Stars compilation. Final track ‘Orca’ sounds like it could fall apart at any moment and just about makes the one minute mark. The guitars grind over a busy bass, heavy yet loose drums and explosive vocals. DIY has never sounded so good. Limited to 400 copies with hand stamped sleeves.”

 

Good Thorb

Mixing the forthcoming Good Throb LP “Fuck Off”

Coming out on Superfi Records.

Here is a review of their first effort:

“Good Throb’s initial public offering draws from all of their previous bands’ work (the Sceptres, the Shitty Limits, Tortura et al.) in the shadows of the Nixe’s Utreg punk, with a hint of “Swiss Punk Now”, a bit of the Australian X’s burliness, but any desire for comparison is overwhelmed by a certain wall of sound and ferocity – on every instrument – that breeds a perfectly nasty sense of empathy. Empathy for a visceral breeze, for the methodical assassination of tedium, for the distilled detestation of our rosy society, and for Tesco anthems. Raw depictions of a mundane universe. (NG – Terminal Boredom)”

 

Personnel

Mastering Personnel‘s 7″ on Doubledotdash!?

“Recorded in 2 hours in reading on a sunday afternoon last summer, personnel’s debut ep chronicles the drab minutiae of modern britain both at home and in public – of shared habitats simultaneously filling and emptying with unwanted gadgets, of dreary shopping centres populated by peoploids jacked up on red-top hysteria. set to stark, distortion-less grooves, the music is brittle but not joyless, simple but not stupid.”
