I'm putting these two bands together because from what I understand it's largely the same people involved with both.
Warchrist - Demo CDR
D-Beat with members from London and Kent.
Bastard Lovechild - Birth CDR
Less D-Beat, more deliberately being offencive. The song Pink Bike For Sale was written about Madeleine McCann, which was topical at the time.
Warchrist have recently reformed and started playing shows again.

Thrashcore from London, I first became aware of them when their singer Keef used to post pictures of his Prince Albert piercing on the old Bizarre Magazine messageboard, back when it used to be a fun place and the magazine was still worth reading, so quite a few years back now. They're still going, live appearances have become a bit sporadic but they recently released a new album.

Put them deuces up.
You can smoke pot if you want to, smoke as much as you fuckin' like, just don't do it at the Rock shows, you could spoil the whole fuckin' night, 'cos landlords don't like narcotics, they need to keep their license, see? You may think that it looks cool, putting his license under jeapordy, just get time to roll one, smoke it away from the pub, do what you gotta do, maan, but keep your doobie out of the bar.

Straight Edge Hardcore from Manchester with cheesy Youth Crew lyrics, for fans of Ten Yard Fight or even if you just like making fun of bands like Ten Yard Fight. This CD compiles their first three 7" but annoyingly not their long out of print Demo, you can buy this CD and all their 7"'s from their bigcartel.
CURRA-FUCKIN'-HEE GO! ....................................................................................................... WE'RE STRAIGHT EDGE!

You weren't at Deal With It's last show, that's a shame you probably don't have this 7" limited to 150 copies with their last song on it. Michael has always professed his love of Type O Negative (even going so far as stealing their album title World Coming Down for DWI's first EP) which is very apparent in the synth/clean vocal intro to this song.
Friday, 28 October 2011
International Straight Edge supergroup, basically Never Again (minus Luke) with Nick from Coke Bust (Washington DC) on vocals and Stefan from Stay Hungry (Gothenburg) on bass. Seeing as they're 3/5 UK I say that makes them fair game for this blog...fuck you, you want it or not?

We never have and never will conform to this society, you take one look at me and say that's contradictory, frown upon my Airmax, mind your own fucking business, you see the threads I'm wearin', but you don't know what I'm thinkin'. Had our ups and downs, now we wear the crown, your arse blows kisses to your underpants WHEN DEATHSKULLS COME TO BUCK YOU DOWN!

I haven't been posting many bands from the Republic of Ireland as it's outside the UK, so here are three very different sounding bands from the city of Dublin.
Crowd Control - 7" EP
Cleveland influence Crust sadly not long for this world as all the members also play in different bands. They did break up briefly when a member moved to Japan but reformed when he came back after the Tsunami. This 7" features cover of Misery by Bastard and Serve And Protect by Citizens Arrest. You can get this from Disposable Culture.
Contort - Endless Myopic Bastards tape
Japanese Noise Punk influenced Hardcore for fans of GISM and D-Clone. Available in Ireland from Distroy Records or in the UK from Headwrecker. You can download Contort's first demo tape from their Tumblr.
EDIT: Contort have since put up a better quality rip of this tape on their Tumblr.
Loose Nut - Nut Loose tape
Early 80's influenced Hardcore featuring members of Crowd Control. Cheap as chips production put together for their UK tour with Crowd Control.

Fast D.I.Y. Hardcore with hippie, pseudo-spiritual lyrics from Bury St. Edmunds.
I found the key to myself, and I unlocked it...the door to myself. What do you think was behind that door? DEMONS...DEMONS GALORE! I fought the demons and saved my soul, AND NOW I'M TOTALLY IN CONTROL!

Awesome Sludge from the South East, you can buy their MP3's from their bandcamp or, if you're a cheap fucker you can download it for free from Agoraphobic Nosebleed frontman Jay Randall's online label Grindcore Karaoke, and while you're there, check out xHaroldshitmanx, Ablach, Atomçk, Evisorax, The Atrocity Exhibit (both EPs they've got up) and Wheelchair Wheelchair Wheelchair Wheelchair who I've put up on this blog but Jay has put a link to buy their CD which I forgot to do.

By request, early 90's Doom influenced Hardcore from Bradford, members went onto be in Iron Monkey and Voorhees, also you may know their song Skincrawl by Rot In Hell covering it. A few years ago Aversionline tracked down their singer and got him to do a short history of the band.
"Ironside started in 1992 in Bradford with a bunch of longtime skate punks. Our first gig was with Sick of it All at the 1 in 12 Club the first time they ever came over – imagine them playing an anarcho collective. We played a lot around the UK, either with touring US hardcore bands or more importantly with new UK bands like Kito, Solace, Wartorn and Voorhees – all of whom have members still active in hardcore today. We did a couple of Breakdown- and Sheer Terror-influenced demos, then got the "holy terror" thing nailed once Integrity did "Darkness" on the "Only the Strong" 7" compilation.
We played in Belgium later in '92 and blew away all the '88 straightedge kids there, which laid the foundation for the H8000 thing. No one was doing slow, chugging metal with deep vocals and no recognizable straightedge lyrics at the time, except Ironside.In 1993 we did the "Fragments of the Last Judgement" 7" – our four career best songs. Then a few of us started drinkin' and some original members left for various reasons. I played guitar and sang for awhile, until we got a couple of metal guys in on drums and rhythm guitar. We took the Paradise Lost/Cathedral influences a bit too far and did the "Damn Your Blooded Eyes" 7" in 1994 at Academy Studios, where a lot of the northern doom metal bands recorded back then – My Dying Bride, Anathema, etc. The back cover photo is hilarious: A collection of nightclub bouncers, circus strongmen, and vampires.Then we went to Europe for a month with Chorus of Disapproval, also in '94, which was the biggest mismatch ever – us listening to Sabbath on the booze, and them not. Good times, but when we got back it was over. I played guitar in Voorhees afterwards, and now in The Horror. It's always cool when people bring up Ironside when I'm touring."
Where are they now (in 2008):
• Arms (singer) went on to play guitar for Voorhees and now plays guitar in The Horror.
• Nick (drums) sang for Unborn (also on Lifeforce Records), played in various Sore Throat lineups, and played in Cracked Cop Skulls (with Napalm Death and Ripcord members, I believe).
• Doug (bass) went on to form Iron Monkey, who did some records for Earache. Last time I saw him he was managing bands like Funeral for a Friend and Raging Speedhorn, or something like that.*
• Jim (guitar) went on to form Iron Monkey with Doug, as well as the amazing Hard to Swallow. He now plays in Geriatric Unit with members of Heresy.
• Tom (guitar) played for Baby Harp Seal (Fugazi/Hoover type stuff), who also recorded for Subjugation Records (Ironside's first home); relocated to Germany and played with Battle Royale (toured the US in '05); and now in plays in Cold War (Deep Six Records).
* I'm guessing that aster it emerged that that he was a registered BNP activist he stopped managing those bands.
* Damn Your Blooded Eyes 7"
* Ecstatic Ritual CD which compiles the Fragments Of The Last Judgement 7" and various comp and demo tracks.

Thrashcore from Birmingham, the two times I've seen them they didn't have any merch for sale, thank fuckity christ for bandcamp. This is a discography they knocked up last year for their Euro tour, now a free download.
Friday, 30 September 2011
Do you want to know what breaks my heart about doing this blog? I'd love to put up more melodic stuff but most people only seem to be interested in the heavy stuff (with the amount of stuff I upload I've had to actually make a Mediafire account so I can keep track of what people are downloading). Stuntface were a Metal influenced Pop Punk band from Wrexham in Wales, if you want a comparison they sound like Suburban Teenage Wasteland Blues-era Strung Out, hi-octane Pop Punk with flashes of Metallic Melodic Hardcore. I got this from the band in the time before Paypal when you still had to write to bands and send a cheque (or if you were feeling brave, well concealed cash). I read a review of a demo they did after this that apparently sounded more like thrashy Earth A.D.-era Misfits. I did pick up one other album by them which got released on a small independent label (but big enough so that they got a review in Kerrap) where they dropped the Metal influences for a more generic Blink 182 sound which kinda well, sucked.
As you can probably tell, I'm starting to run out of ideas for stuff to put up here, feel free to make requests in the comments, or if you're in a band who gives out music for free over the Internet leave your Bandcamp address in a comment (if you upload music to Mediafire or other file hosting services make sure you also leave a link to artwork), I'll listen to all submissions and put up the ones I like.

Mind Eraser style Powerviolence from Thanet which started around the same time as Human Junk and featuring their drummer. This was released as a tape and a free download, the tape sold out before I could get a copy, they did plan to do a second run of them but broke up before that happened.

Valhalla Pacifists: Fastcore from HarroGREAT.
Burning The Prospect: Neocrust from Boston Not Boston.
Sunday, 28 August 2011
A few months ago you may remember I posted Petty Bone's demo, they've recently released an album on Damage Done Records, according to Petty Bone's Blog you can pre-order it now and it will be sent out in September but mine came soon after I ordered it. It's really good, you should buy it, need convincing, you can listen to some tracks on their Myspace page.
Saturday, 27 August 2011
New 7", and the songs actually have titles on this release! If you like it you can order it from La Vida Es Un Mus, their demo tape I posted before is also available from them, I should have included the link at the time, sorry.

Found this in a random distro at a show this week and thought I'd put it up here. Shackle Me Not I guess you could call Posicore, their Myspace page says they were from London but judging from the other bands members played in I would have said Nottingham. Deathskulls are loutish Thrashcore from Essex you know and love/hate (delete as applicable).
Saturday, 13 August 2011
Basically I just got this at Kid Pang's last show yesterday and I'm putting it straight up here because I'm a terrible, terrible person. Two of the best bands from the Margate Practice Rooms mini-scene, Human Junk from Broadstairs and Man Hands from Ashford, who haven't broken up since Gareth went back to November Coming Fire as I previously posted but have got John from Sky:Lark on vocal duties, some would argue that they're better now. This tape is in limited quantities so pick one up one their joint tour, if you happen to live in the North of England, if not...erm...maybe Sam from Human Junk will put any remaining copies up for sale from his distro.
EDIT: You can buy the tape from Human Junk.

Post-Hardcore from ex-members of the Melodic Hardcore band Winter In June and current members of the Fastcore band Man Hands. The liner notes would like you to know that Jamie is a criminal. Scott is a criminal. Ross is a criminal. Mike is a criminal. James is not a criminal.
No man fathered the style of the Big Baby Jesus. Shame on you and any man who doubts the Ol' Dirty Bastard.

Found this in a distro at a show this weekend, couldn't find it on any other blog so I made my own rip of it. Mostly 30 second or less new recordings by: Burmese, Apartment 213, Judas, Brain Dead, Bud Junkees, Senata Fox, Monsters Of Pot, Wadge, Sete Star Sept, Warfair?, Atentat Na Sluh, Nihilist Commando, Crime Desire, Hatred Surge, Iron Lung, Потоп, Makua Valley Blast Test and De Novissimis so not many UK bands but fuck, you want it or not?
Friday, 29 July 2011
The most popular Straight Edge band in the UK before Never Again and one of the few with a more Hardline stance. From the slums of Marghetto but often associated with the Canterbury Hardcore scene in it’s glory days of the early 00’s. The most easy thing to find is the Gehenna Made Flesh CDEP (which includes their first demo as the last two tracks). Much harder to find are:
* Version of From Blood To Fire on the Blackfish UKHC comp
* Two tracks from the split with Thirty Seconds Until Armageddon (I would just put up the whole thing but then I’d incur the wrath of Jamie TDON)
* The last demo where they abandoned the Slayer riffs in favour of a more Madball style beatdown (the song SxFxEx Nate would re-record later during his flirting with Krishnacore in Age Of Kali)
If I've missed anything let me know and hook me up.

Black Metal side project by members of Cthulhu Youth, limited to 100 copies released on US label Prison Tatt Records, at the time of posting this they do appear to have some left so act quickly if you like this. You can get their first unreleased EP as a free download from Cthulhu Youth's blog. Most of the lyrics are in Italian.
EDIT: I've been informed that the lyrics are actually part Portuguese and only the name is in Italian.

I realise that by only putting up UK bands, I've painted myself into a corner. When I started this blog I wanted to put up bands that other blogs wouldn't touch. I can be incredibly lazy when it come to ripping vinyl, whenever I get a new record I do a quick search to see if someone else has put up a rip so I don't have to, here are some rips of things I could find anywhere else.
Iron Lung - Live At Supersonic 2009 LP
Recorded at Birmingham's premier experimental music festival and I'm proud to boast that I was actually there when this was recorded. This being live it's hard to separate each song so I carved this into five blocks. There is some background noise during the between song banter but trust me, this is way better than the first rip I did of this.
Gauze - 貧乏ゆすりのリズムに乗って LP
When I picked this up I thought it was a discography of all their 80's stuff (it just said Gauze on the front and something in Japanese written down the spine), I didn't know that they reformed mid way through the 00's and recorded some new material. I'm especially proud that I managed to tag the tracks with the correct kanji (thank you discogs)
Su19b/Dreadeye - split 7"
The tracks on Su19b's side are all in Japanese (tagged correctly thanks to their site), Dreadeye kind of sound like a Japanese version of Despise You to me.
