Yeah, this has been posted on a few blogs(such as the mighty TERROR NOISE AUDIO), but here it is @320k V0, with scans, because someone asked for it. This one's for you, dear.

Otheringly, have you all looked at this, yet? It's some amazing HTML5 work, and a lovely concept.

Mondo Gecko & D9 (Israel) - Split 12" (2009)

Mondo Gecko
1. Feast of the Beast
2. Frozen Mountain
3. Chosen One
4. Brothers of Blasphemy
5. Blind Horse
6. Blastbeat for the King
7. Urban Stefan
8. Prolific
9. Shapes Chasing Shadows
10. Cracked
11. Jigsaw Your Existence
12. Deadman in the Street
13. Fourth Gear Comprehension
14. Divings' Abyss

Out of all the waxy rips that Urban Decay Records sent me (and many others), this one is probably my favorite, an impression that really isn't a fucking surprise at all considering the content. Mondo Gecko, a nervous thrash unit already present on the blog with their split with Time of My Life (perhaps, perhaps not), deliver straight up hardcore punk without the rock'n'roll. On the other side, D9 overclocked a lawnmower again. Their tracks actually compile a true biography of the vile machine, following its short, but fast, punk as fuck life. To be honest, their side is what I appreciate a bit more, if purely 'cause of the (admittedly) sound production success. Unlike on their S/T (yeah, yeah, here it is), this time around the phat bass is basically omnipresent, yet still assimilating all the fat in your body. So seriously, if you couldn't take the S/T (you pussy, you), give the band another chance with this one, 'cause they shine, baby.

'Cause I'm keepin' it real (an excuse for keepin' it fast [an excuse for keeping it short]), repeating a few of them links, go ahead and check out the somewhat older Mondo Gecko (/Time of My Life) & D9 posts for more info. If my non-review did not satisfy your insatiable hunger for descriptions of noisy punk rock, wrap your giant head around this review here.

I'm sorry, I bulldozed off for a moment there. (Mediahahahaha... Wait, what?)

BY THE WAY, the Tribute to the Grindcore Ninja Commando Team has received a minor update. That said, I'll be even less around 'cause I'm escaping the country in a few days, hoping to stay the fuck away for a time a bit shorter than a month (or so), attempting to catch Melt-Banana in Slovenia, Liturgy and Jean-Baptiste in France, a Bosnian truck driver in... well, anywhere, and possibly avoid as many gas stations as possible. À plus tard!

Massground [JPN] - Emblem Stay Evil [2002]

I thought this would come off as obscure but it's just because I forgot about it, a quick google search reveals a few blogspot hits, which begs the question, how much brutal brutal death metal is compare to plain old death metal?

Gunshot [GBR] - Twilights Last Gleaming [1997]

What's the difference between 'merican and british hip hop? British rappers limp on the left side and they stop gang banging around three or four in the afternoon [!] for tea and tea cookies, I mean, biscuits. It's true, I contracted a ghostwritten dissertation on the similarities between dirty south and grime.
Seriously, I thought constables kept ocarinas in their hands and sub-machine-guns in the patrol's trunk, not the other way around, although I can only imagine how pleasant blowing on a MP5 can be.

Fuck On The Beach [JPN] - Power Violence Forever [1999]

Fixed broken links on Betrayed Again, their live split with Yacöpsæ and split with Merda, question of not letting things linger forever [for all my beaches].

Endless power summer violence to you!

Hallo, 'scopers! Twice in my life, I've known people return cds under the impression that they are faulty. One of these was an ex girlfriend who, on hearing the vinyl crackle at the beginning of Erotica by Madonna, immediately decided the disc was all broken up and returned it for a refund. No, seriously. The other instance was a cousin of mine, now sadly passed away, who returned a copy of System Of A Down's Toxicity, thinking the stop-start intro to 'Prison Song' was a fault in the mastering process(his words. Really.)

I don't talk to either of them anymore, one for obvious reasons(being dead, innit), so I cannot gauge what their reaction to Welcome To Execrate would be. A compilation of tracks from twisted brainwrongs such as 2nd Gen, Hrvatski, Stock, Hausen and Walkman, V/Vm and of course S^JN themselves, it's a lovely collection of distorted, warped, shifted and locked grooves, strangely danceable at times, melodic at others, pulverizing at other others.

I myself have only considered returning a faulty cd once - a copy of Incunabula by Autechre, bought many years ago at the Carlisle branch of HMV. 'Kalpol Introl' has loads of skippy, glitchy artifacts that I don't think are supposed to be there.

I'm not uploading that though. So ner.

V/A -This Is Dubstep Vol.2 [2010]

The scanner I'm using really has a hard time processing this album's jacket and discs, dubstep is about bass though, not neon colors, so it shouldn't matter too much.
Big up to my boy Étienne [who tags all his CDs, as shown here] for letting me borrow dis ting-a-ling ding of a double crumpet and filibuster my way into e-pies...

My grip on english is not as good as I thought....
