Society of Friends AKA The Quakers - Discography CD

Society of Friends are a much over looked Texas hardcore band featuring August of Walls. I am having trouble describing them. Basically put Walls' fast parts in a blender with the Man is the Bastard side of their split with Capitalist Casualties and the more recent Bastard Noise rippers and you have Society of Friends. Yeah, it's that fucking good. I slept on this...You're still sleeping on this, and man that fucking sucks because this band is fucking killer.

I still have no idea what the hell is going on in half their songs, though. This band is fucked up and weird as shit.

Blocked Out - Nomad, California

Requested. Solid dudes churning out moshy hardcore. I'm really iffy about this, but they aren't bad at all. They're really good at what they do. Really good. I just am not into this style at all. Link taken from the band. LP features sick artwork. I don't know if it's actually available to purchase yet. If you dig Trapped Under Ice, newer Mind Eraser, Hatebreed or Trash Talk this is for you.

Mind Eraser/Slang - Split 7"

Two new cuts from powerviolence inflicted metallic champs Mind Eraser. No frills and back to the basics like they're an Infest worship band again. Slang dishes out one track of Japanese Hardcore fury. This is not to be missed. I don't think it's for sale online yet. You should've seen them on tour or gone to Chaos In Tejas, chumps.

California Love/Gehenna - Split 7"

Fuck! Metallic hardcore has never sounded so unfuckwithable. One song per band. California Love churn out an unsettling, creeping and full on dirty tune of sheer fucking hate clocking in at one minute and fifty eight seconds, speeding up just when it needs to. Gehenna plays one 3 and a half minute track of shouted, thrashy, dark metallic hardcore. This is why your parents wish they'd never let you have Aunt Margret's turn table.

Slow Death - Demo

Slow Death are anything but slow. This New Jersey act is churning out tunes that remind me of the insanity of Void meets the intensity and speed of Infest. A mad house of sound.

What the fuck are you waiting for? Download this!

A Shadow of a Doubt - Demo

Western Mass hardcore from a group of guys headed up by Derrick of the Well Fed blog. Plenty of distortion, visceral screams, and percussion reminiscent of a automobile crash. Even better, A Shadow of a Doubt is brave enough to write more than one song over two minutes long. No way! Get out of hardcore!

As the feedback squeals through your speakers, the songs follow loose structure which isn't afraid to approach insanely noisy levels. There's moments of calm which allow your ears to relax from the previous sonic assaults. The recording quality is actually fairly decent on this as well, which seems to be a bonus as far as demos go these days.

It's tough to pin this tape down, which invigorates me after the deluge of mindless noisy hardcore which seems to contaminate my computer's hard drive. Picture, download, and pretty much everything all taken from Well Fed so please check it out. Demos are available for $3, so if you're into it, shoot an email over and pick up a copy. These are limited to 100, so I doubt it'll last. SUPPORT.

Burning Love

What can I say?
Stoned punk rock. Kysus on Damaged-era Flag.
The demo laid some fucking righteous blueprints.
Don't Ever Change dropped with a lo-fi Bad Seeds cover.
How the fuck is that not the greatest 7" of the year?
Answer: it is. Fuck everything else.
Let's wank off in my garage to Raw Power.
The LP, Songs for Burning Lovers, hit nearly two days ago now.
AND AS OKAY AS IT IS. It's really lacking.
The EP got my hopes up for this bastardised lo-fi hardcore masterpiece.
Something like King of Jeans with poor production.
Fuck. Maybe rip off Psychedelic Horseshit & I'll autoerotic-asphyxiate myself.
It's not. It's just what the demo offered.
And after tasting the sweet pussyjuice of the 7",
Queens of the Stone Age-core isn't what I want.
It's really fucking not.
It's not bad. It's just like,
Or more poignantly if the intro to Fear & Loathing was directed by Rob Zombie.
It picks up at the end, AGAIN POIGNANTLY.
Maybe if I was fucking and hitting salvia hard, I'd dig this.
But it's lacking luster like masturbating with a hoover.
Where's my fucking noise you piece of shit? Do not fuck with me.
Fuck this, go listen to Mayyors or Veins instead.

Don't Ever Change 7"

H.P.P. - Demo '09

More obscure Northwest Hardcore for your fancy. I don't know the track names. Your guess is as good as mine. Tape comes with two covers. One is the exact same as the cover of the upcoming LP on Perennial.

V.A. - "Maggot Minded" cassette

Northwest hardcore greats. Hard hitting fast as fuck Funerot, hyped and noisy Sex/Vid and the ever frantic HIV combine forces with relatively unknown Washington hardcore masters speedy fuzzed out White Boss, Loose Change, horrible Horrible and low-fi Sisters on this astounding nearly quality-less compilation tape. The highlights of this tape are White Boss and the exclusive Sex/Vid tracks. If anyone has this tape and doesn't want it or finds it hit me up. I'm willing to dish out moderate amounts of cash. I'm kinda surprised that to my knowledge New Fits is the first blog to post this. After all, it came out a little over three years ago.

White Boss LP out soon along with the H.P.P. LP on Perennial.

Getting more stoked on my migration to the Northwest everyday...except I may move to Austin, but that's less likely.

Walls - Stare at the Walls 7" (Tour 7")

Link removed, official digital download here
"Huffing paint...makes it crazier" reads the matrix of this slab of unlabeled black vinyl. Portland, Oregon's WALLS churn out two new frantic nervous hardcore punk noise and a Die Kreuzen cover. Pissing on your notions of punk with walls of sound. Audible word vomit over some dark sludgey noise punk. Fucking powerful. Start to finish. Pure fucking unsettling hate now for public consumption. Link taken from my friend Mitch's blog Fondling the Master's Skull. Tour only so go see them.

Capitalist Casualties/Lack of Interest Split

Crushing, distortion laden split from two veteran powerviolence acts. While it's not quite as classic as these groups' older material, this is still quality stuff. Nearly 7 1/2 minutes of the tunes you've come to despise over the years, played at max volume to complete the destruction of your discount USB turntable. Included with the latest issue of Short, Fast, and Loud, the value here is nearly off the charts at $6.66 from Six Weeks Records. Reviews, interviews, pictures, columns, and a new Capitalist Casualties split EP all at once. If you like the download, make sure to pick this up. Don't be a fool. Link taken from my blog, Play it Loud.

Aus-Rotten - Not One Single Fucking Hit Discography

Here it is people, the masters of mid 1990s anarcho-crust punk. Just looking at this thing makes me want to start sewing homemade patches with dental floss on my shorts. Inspired and pissed off lyrics chock full off nearly every social or political topic you can think of, with gut wrenching vocals and horrid guitar riffs sure to make your expensive iPod ear buds explode. Of course you've probably already heard most of this material at some point, but Aus-Rotten was one of those rare punk bands who were great enough to salt away for a few years and dust off for a rainy day, sounding just as incredible as they did the first few times around.

One of the seminal bands around serious anarcho punk, Aus-Rotten put together some of the more memorable records from my younger days, as I'm sure many others agree. Although this album doesn't contain their two later LPs, there's more than enough here to keep you busy. While the music was incredibly catchy and raucous for their genre, the lyrics were what really drew me in when I first dropped the record needle onto Fuck Nazi Sympathy. The quality progressed with each album, moving past the more simplistic themes of their early work, into full blown diatribes on political prisoners, transnational corporations, and nationwide boycotts.  

Whether it was Eric's atrociously grating vocals, the insane drumming, thunderous grainy bass lines or Dave's barking vocal style, Aus-Rotten captured people's attention for their almost 10 year existence. They were never the most technical or intelligent band out there, but there was something obviously special taking place within one of Pittsburgh's greatest bands. Weird feelings of nostalgia crept over me as I listened to some of these songs, so I hope you love (or hate) them as much as I do.

Not One Single Fucking Hit breaks down as follows:
Tracks 2-12: The System Works...For Them
13-17: Anti-Imperialist EP
18: Pogo Attack comp
20-24: Fuck Nazi Sympathy EP
25-26: Split with Naked Aggression 
27-29: Start a Riot comp
