If you've not heard of this lot, go and have a look on Youtube for them, or something. Go on. I will wait.

Ok. Now, as great as that was, it probably didn't sound anything like this album AT ALL. Shit and Shine are incredibly difficult to pin down - the live rituals are a hypnotic mess of Boadrum-esque drummer overload and monoriff sludge, but the albums have a much noisier tone to them. MUCH noisier. When Extreme Dogs Go Wrong sounds like William Bennett DJing at an underage wedding, man. It's all a bit... wrong.


There's a Strangulated Beatoffs cover on there. A THIRTY-FIVE MINUTE LONG Strangulated Beatoffs cover. And a lot of it sounds like Masonna, but with an afro. If you see what I mean. Which you don't, because my brain has been irreparably damaged by this, and soon yours will too.

It was a limited release, 1000 copies on Riot Season, which came with an extra disc of the 'You're Lucky To Have Friends Like Us' vinyl. This sounded like the first disc, but run through some kind of kvltifying lo-fi filter. Depending on whether I love you or not, I might have included it in this download. MAYBE.
