TRAPDOOR TAPES STOCK ALL $6 ea AND WELL WORTHY!!
Trapdoor Tapes is an amazing label run outta the Sunshine Coast, QLD, they pump out releases every thirty seconds (exaggeration) in tiny runs (eg. three or five or two). These boys work hard and are cool. All the music is really cool, noisy etc. The below reviews and descriptions will better guide you down the colourful road of Sam and Luke and Blake and friends.
TT040 - ARMPIT - TRON II CDR
TT011 - BONG VILLAGE HAIR MACHINE CASSETTE
Excellent guitar and drum jams - totally free forming, something a little early sonic youth esque bout the timbres here - other wise loose, bluesy, good. Three track release. Second track has an altered recording which makes it sound like a space vacuum remix, which is good.
Brutal. always butal trapdoor. This is the sound of youth. Three - four piece banging out some kind of no wave purge with all gear turned up plenty loud. Sound dweller drop in and out of rhythms and cohesian like they should. Good punk.
TT034 - EMESIS/SCISSOR SPLIT CASSETTE
Emesis is huge echo and ambience and hypnotic like. Scissor is sharp, close and brutal and highly electronic. Together - it makes a lot of sense. Space explored from different proximities - to yr ear. Please listen EMESIS and SCISSOR. Dubbed on sunshine yellow hand painted yellow tape.
Emsis is Sam Witek. Scissor is Blake. Both Trapdoor members.
TT002 - MSHING+EMESIS CASSETTE
Intense sounds of live processed tone, noise and such. THERE ARE ONLY TWO COPIES LEFT OF THIS TAPE IN THE UNIVERRS.
TT024 - BONG VILLAGE/YOUNG ROMANTIX MAKE LOVE CASSETTE
Young Romantix lead by Shaun South - amazing no wave pop and Bong Village bringing the beats. Excellent match - a popular release.
TT019 - BONG VILLAGE/REUBEN DERRICK SPLIT CASSETTE
Bong Village make the rhythms and Rueben Derrick take out the perccusives for some minimal sax screech and ambience. No Jazz.
Live twelve minute abrasion from start to stop.
TT030 - MSHING SEDITION CDR
Live, paced attack and just under ten minutes. Excellent recording.
PULLED OUT RECORDS (sydnay)
Run out of Sydney by the most respectable Nick Dan (member of xNoBBQx - blues driven catastrophy two piece with Matt Earle)
The Sydney quartet of Anthony Guerra, Matt Earle, Sumugan Sivanesan and Nick Dan summon the evil spirits in this documented live ritual that runs the gamut from Neu! metal pummel to sinecore minimalism. The world seems to collapse as the goddess soma brings white light that strips any tangible object of meaning. Echoing mantras of dark energy channelled outwardly via an omnidirectional spill of force fed feedback.Limited edition of 275 on one sided hot pink vinyl with etching by Rizili. Includes insert print on thick pink card with individually hand numbered silk screened pink on black covers.
The Spiders PULLLP05
Australia is known to be the home of some of the deadliest spiders in the world & James Heighway is no exception. When not behind the drum kit in XWAVE James collects and modifies ancient electronics. These are The Spiders, a unique blend of broken, hacked, modified and recycled guitars, keyboards, effectors, mixers, etc all played simultaneously. Together the sound expressed conveys a feeling of the bush drenched in feedback.
James's intense live performances have him known as king of noise throughout the region. Others have dubbed him Merzbow of the Mountains. This LP collects hilights from limited edition cdrs and cassettes previously released on Moth Noize (James' own label) & a live performance at the 3rd Winter Tragic festival.
Limited edition of 300 on white vinyl with individually spray painted covers by the artist.
xnobbqx throw a few snags on the barbie for this prime slab of high art.
Your stomach may be rumbling at first glance of this delectable picture disc...but don't be fooled..
xnobbqx tear the place apart like 100 rookie cops high on sugar and caffeine having mistaken your bbq block party for the meth lab down the street, by the time they realize (end of the first side) it's pork buns & sausage sandwiches all round. but where's the cheese? after the second half cooked curried sausage you wont even care that you cant score any more, cuffed against the wall begging them to turn it over for another blast...-pulledout.org
Taking their name from Meat & Livestock Australia propaganda the Melbourne based duo of Ein and Aus transgress a spiritual reality in which grindcore is subverted towards a path of procratinat-obliteration. 46 cranial fracturing songs featuring wailing banshee vocals, a drum machine set to over 300bpm and a possesed 20th century shredder guitarist. On stage, the couple use chainsaws, exploding corpses, and other visual devices to communicate their ideas about domestic violence and civil disobedience. UnAustralians truly represent the extremely brutal end of improvised music in Australia.Limited edition of 300 on clear red vinyl. Comes with a bonus DVD or video download (customers outside Australia) of live performances.
Following on from their 2007 New Zealand tour triple lathe cut LP, and 6 cassette boxset on Breakdance The Dawn, comes Farben Raum, the debut CD by Sun of the Seventh Sister. This floating line-up, mushroom fuelled free-psych woolly mammoth often consists of a phalanx of between 10 and 25 players: multiple drummers, multiple electrified chordophones, horns, vocals, oscillators etc. Imagine half a dozen freak-folk ensembles congealing into a psychedelic din of Borbetomag-ian proportions.
Unborn Unicorn LP $20
