here's a summary of news from this end:
Last Under The Sun
After 13 years & 10 full length recordings, Dufus is putting out another album called "Eth." Copies of the new album are on their way from USA and will be available in the Iron Man Shop
in a week or two.
Police Bastard - "It's Good To HATE"
was released earlier this year, the CD features four new songs and one cover version with an additional DVD containing live footage collected between 2007 and 2010. The record features the work of founding band members Pid and John Doom doing dual vocals together again for the first time in ten years. The gigs and recordings have also seen the return of Chris Crass, who took over on bass from Trogg in 1994. Seano Porno and Mark Badger from Last Under The Sun
have picked up the work of guitars and additional vocals and the drummer, Simon, also plays in Last Under The Sun and formerly of Rivers Edge. The release is dedicated to Trogg
, Police Bastard's first bass player who passed away in 2008. It was because of Trogg, and his enthusiasm to do it all again, that Police Bastard
started writing, rehearsing, recording and touring again.
tracks were Recorded, mixed, produced and mastered by Simon Reeves at Framework Recording Studios, Musoplex
. Simon has worked with the likes of Napalm Death, Cathedral, Meathook Seed, and a host of others from The Cubans, Harpies, and The Nightingales.
After a nearly 20 year dedication to new and alternative music in all its many forms, Simon Reeves has become a master at capturing ferocious guitars and brutal sounds.
The new recordings are by far the best thing the band has produced to date.
