Long Overdue Update

Time for the first proper distro update in around three months.  The main reason is I spent just about every free night in April and May recording with Nightbringer.  We've been doing live track sessions of four or five songs at a time for the last year at Bottom of the Lake in Toledo and finally wrapped that up, so it was time to do the overdubs.  We had what I think is the best guitar and bass sound I've ever gotten, so we wanted to get everything done in one go.  I kept imagining I could get a couple songs done in a night, but it rarely worked out that way.  So 17 songs later (not including the brand new songs we demo'd for ourselves to work on), it's finally done.  Now we're going to take those songs in batches and do vocals and mix.  The second 7" on Deer Healer is getting done first, followed by two songs for an American/Canadian hc comp on Schizophrenic and a song for the Detroit covers comp on Spider Cuddler.  We should have test presses of the first 7" (on High Anxiety) as soon as Chris rolls back through town with Burning Love (one of my favorite North American bands going, if I may say so), so look for the real thing in a month or so.

Oh!  And we made new shirts.  We ran out of medium shirts in the black design (but we still have YL, S, L, and XL), so we made a new design in medium only (actually there are 4 larges too) and in a dozen different colors.  Just specify size and color when ordering.  Has "Fight Like Hell" on the sleeve and the NB/FLH hawk on the front.  

Fight Like Hell is the series of shows Len from Nightbringer and I have started putting on at the Shelter in Detroit.  Inspired by the Japanese Burning Spirits, Smash Your Chains, etc shows, we're trying to have one great show a month with an emphasis on local area bands to try and really get things moving in Detroit again.  The time is right, there are a lot of good bands and a lot of people doing the work to support the scene, so things seem ready to break out.  The first show was June 5th with Slang from Sapporo, Mind Eraser, Nightbringer, Final Assault and Disconnected and despite a torrential rain storm halfway through (that actually had water running down the entry steps to the Shelter) went very well.  There haven't been hardcore shows at the Shelter in years, so its very cool to be doing things there again.

But enough about me, on to the records...
The Alliance 12" was released on CD with an extra song.  I also picked up an inexpensive copies of the Blood Spit Nights discography, Portland's noise core outfit from a couple years back, the Slowmotions CD (the first four singles and a bonus track, same as the Partners In Crime LP.  A personal favorite), and the Bonescratch CD, which is an older HG Fact release, Born Against worship, oddly enough.

In the Japanese influenced department, we have the new Burial 12" and the Lotus Fucker 12".  Lotus Fucker just completed a tour with the Wankys from England and we had the pleasure of playing with them at Michigan Meltdown in Grand Rapids.  Total noise assault.  Burial have really come into their own and remind me a bit of a more metallic Talk Is Poison now.

Also pictured is the Systematic Death/See You In Hell 7", released for their European tour.  Bit of warning, two of the Systema songs are on the new LP and the other is a re-recording of an older classic.  Still worth it to get more SYIH material.  Glue it to the Crow/SYIH split and you can have a SYIH 7" or a Systema/Crow split.

I restocked a couple of the Lip Cream DVDs, so I have one complete set available and a few copies of the ACC and Lip Cream Only volumes.  At the same time I picked up the recent represses of the Ogreish Organism CDs on Pill's Oni label.  Ogreish Organism was Pill's project after Lip Cream.  He sang and played drums, Minoru from Lip Cream played bass on most of it, and Zigyaku (Bastard/Judgment) and Chelsea (Death Side/Paintbox) alternately played guitar.  Hardcore as you'd expect, with some of the Chelsea material getting a little more out there, but mostly kept together by heavy riffing and Pill's growling shout.

And last but far from least, I picked up the recent Crow represses on Prank.  The Neurotic Organization 7" is finally available again, Bloody Tear gets a red cover and is remastered, and Beating of the Wings of Destruction has been redone as a gorgeous picture disk.  That last one was gone in the blink of an eye the first time around, so I'd suggest getting it while you can.  One side is one crushing dirge and the other has four fast rippers.  The mysterious LP in the middle of the picture is the 解剖室 LP (Kaiboushitsu/Autopsy Suite).  Rumored to have Crow members involved (definitely sounds like it when he breaks from Gastunk/gothish singing into a howling yell), limited to 700 copies on 180g red vinyl.  Great record and very expensive.  (Sold out!)

And I picked up copies of the recent Paintbox 12"s, the Clown picture disk...  Check the list and see!
