Still a bit full of disbelief at how few people came along to see these guys play the Exchange the other day. Not even sure if, like Black Pus the day before, we can blame the paltry attendance at the door of the Brisfest which it clashed with. Didn’t stop em putting in a fucking A performance anyway. They’ve just announced a bunch of dates & you should go if possible.

ACID BATH / Sick Thoughts, by ACID BATH / Sick Thoughts

Band of the day have got to Acid Bath. Check out this split with Sick Thoughts: http://t.co/NXIXZ0sKAe.

Totally DIY / totally fun / totally people hitting things & shouting along.

HT @dandelionradio’s Mark Whitby for playing a track by them last month on his excellent Dandelion Radio show. If I had favourites ….

Sick Thoughts (the other band on the split above) are also pretty fly an all.

Word! Check out what’s coming on at The Cube Microplex on 20th October. It’s only Instrument, un film de Jem Cohen et Fugazi!
So much <3 for The Cube. Every city needs a small, independent, volunteer run cinema, open to running as varied a program of interesting films, gigs, performances etc as it’s humanly possible to do. I helped put on a screening of Earthlings there a couple of years ago (cuz no one else would do) & it’d be such a travesty if it doesn’t raise the money it needs to buy the building. 

This documentary features a collaboration between filmmaker Jem Cohen and the Washington D.C. band Fugazi, covering the 10 year period of 1987-1996. Far from a traditional documentary, this is a musical document; a portrait of musicians at work. The project mixes sync-sound, 16mm. Super-8 video and a wide range of archival formats, including concert footage, studio sessions practice, touring, interviews and portraits of audience members from around the country. 

Check out the trailer yo:

Malevolence were so fucking good last night. Totally tight bill in fact, Not a dud band among the five. Staggered no one got hurt though, was like two steppin’ on a ice rink in there. The Hatchet need to invest in some sawdust pretty soon or they’re going to end up on the wrong end of some legal wranglings shit before long.

It’s a new video by the excellent Baby Godzilla look. For the single Don’t Touch That Dial, due to drop on 28th October via Venn Records. Spazoid jazzcore just about sums them up. Full of fucking vim.

This is good. 

This November sees the joint transatlantic project from Self Defense Family and Goodtime Boys released in the UK through upcoming Welsh label Palm Reader Records with an extremely limited number of 700 made, a collector&#8217;s item for any self-respecting fan of forward-thinking heavy music.

SDF of course are coming over with Touché Amoré on their upcoming December UK and EU tour &amp; GTB (I know it&#8217;s only GB but as any designy person&#8217;ll tell ya things look better in odd numbers than even) are just touring all the time it sometimes seems.
