Here...listen to it.
Some points/topics mentioned are the now defunct DIY Noise.
Dina Dog Records
Information about how I'm going to start ripping tapes.
Start going to use this blog as a bunch of stuff rather then just label stuff.

It's been a long time since I posted here.

Since I ended DIY Noise back a good months ago I had actually forgotten all about the blog.

It's pretty funny reading back at some of my posts. I get glimpses of a slightly younger but more enthusiastic and naive Eddie ready and willing to release anything from anywhere.

It was during that hey day of sorts that the constant influx of bands asking to be released overwhelmed me and made me forget how personal i used to make each release. the early DIYN releases had some work put into them even to the little details like painting the cassettes and using stupid little things like glitter or chili powder to make a tape more intricate.

As time went on and the queue list became large my only goal was to put out EVERYTHING all at one which inevitably led to the quality and look of the tapes to degrade.

i had stooped down to basic paper sleeves as inserts and not painting tapes-each release would essentially look exactly like the last but with a different cover.

sure i had some releases that i was proud of but a lot of the time i look back at some tapes and wonder i bothered releasing it in the first place.

Now that DIYN is over and DINA DOG records is the new thing I made the decision to release stuff that I do like. And even more, I want to make SORDO my #1 priority again.

There is a lot more to write but I find it hard keeping up with my thoughts when I'm typing
i need to find a dictation program or something.

Captain Three Leg/Shitnoise Bastards

Sorry for the tiny picture.

But here is another release of mine.
This was a big co-release with a bunch of other labels.
Tombs In The Valley helped.
Sinister Upheaval helped.
That dude in Dislecksick helped out I think?

This is a pro grade tape that was handled by Hazree of Shitnoise Bastards.
I love how cheap they usually come out to be with the exception of how much shipping follows afterward.
But it's cool, I think so anyway.
Very worth it at the very least.
NAC can be a real hassle.


To the bands.

Captain Three Leg are a legendary but not very heard of grind band.
Lots of people usually know about Cripple Bastards or Phobia.
And for many those are the underground bands.
I like however that no matter how underground you think your music is there is almost always another band.
For me, Captain Three Leg was that band.
After I began listening to grind for a while (Agathocles was my first grind band)
I thought I had a pretty wide knowledge of all the bands already.
It was a little while but during my schooling time when I get loads of financial aid cash I'd splurge on distros.
I'd pick up anything that I had already knew of and then usually was recommended other stuff.
Since Agathocles had tons of splits I was always learning about a new band each day.
During one of my distro hunts I came across Andy of Captain Three Leg's blog spot.
I saw that he was selling a bunch of really cool looking stuff and for very cheap as well.
If you've bought from Andy you'll know he doesn't have a Storeenvy or Big Cartel.
Just a basic distro list of stuff that's available and for how much.
My first order from him contained a Small Doses compilation among other stuff.
That Small Doses comp was one of the coolest things I had seen. Not heard though.
I had seriously not heard of any one of the bands on that comp save for Godstomper and some others.
After listening to the comp I understood that I was still just only touching the tip of the iceburg of grind.
From then on, I scoured all over to find more stuff from the bands that were on the comp.
Thanks to it, i discovered all these bands...
Sete Star Sept
Deranged Insane
Rectal Twat
Joe Pesci
2 Minuta Dreka
Chocolate Crucifix
and of course...Captain Three Leg

I'd check back with Mortville Noise every time I had some extra cash to pick up cheap tunes.
Eventually he put out a post on his blog that he was looking for people to help with a release.
That release being the Incident At Ape Canyon disc (more on that on another post)
Now I'm finding myself talking to one of the legendary grind/noise freaks from the heyday.

Cool dude.Great band. And also coming soon a split with Sordo!
Can't wait.

Wow! I've talked so much about C3L that I've almost forgotten about SNB!
Shitnoise Bastards are just great.
Since I gave a lengthy prologue of how I met Andy I'll do a simple write up of how I met Hazree as well.
This was around the time when I was first getting into grind and doing a label.
I had just hooked up with Operation Grindcore to do the first Vol 1 comp on tape.
I had some left over (only 5) and Hazree hit me up about a trade.
It was really weird at first talking to this dude.
At the time I assumed that Hazree was from the USA.
I found out soon after he was from Malaysia.
We were talking about a trade and all of it was just new to me.
I had never traded once. I was barely getting the hang of shipping tapes out.
And now all of the sudden I'm sending stuff overseas to some cat I met on facebook.
I remember even making people at the post office wait forever in line while I was filling out a customs slip.
I had never done it before and it actually scared me.
My mom was telling me even that some people will do that just to get free stuff.
Time passed and he got his tape.
And I think I got a compilation tape from him or something?
Don't quite remember.
After I had started a regular trading route with him I was being hit up by other people he knew.
Thanks to him actually I found out about the huge east asia grind scene that was happening.
All his bands that he was in Diseksa,Hatred Division and most recently Shitnoise Bastards.

I will rep SNB till death. Hazree has been nothing but the coolest and most straightforward dude in ever.
Many hails to you bro!

I have a good handful of these tapes available.

Night Terror - Malevolent//Union EP

Okay, it's kinda hard to call this an EP when there's so much tunage on this.

The latest release is Night Terror//Malevolent Union

I was supposed to release this stuff since last year but it totally got lost among all the other stuff that was in the DIY Noise queue.

After a while actually too I think I forgot all about this release.
I was contacted by one of the members (Jared I think) and he mentioned that he saw his band on the "soon to be released" section of the label page.

I got all the tracks back as well as the art. I usually wait until both art and tracks are in before I start on dubbing a release. And what I hadn' t heard for a while was really good,dark,bleak sludge.

I don't get to listen to much sludge as I'd like since I'm more keen to raw speed over slow begrudging heavy riffs.

In any case, very happy with how this came out.

The art totally gives you an idea of what the tape will sound like before it's rolling in your deck.
Great stuff!

Gorgonized Dorks/Hatred Division

So keeping things straight this time.
Gonna be keeping up with this because not keeping up with it is bad.....and that's that......lad.

Rhyming aside this tape was supposed to be out since a while back like most of my other projects.
Slowly but surely I am catching up.

On this we have the mighty G.Dorks teaming up with Hatred Division.

G.Dorks are no stranger to DIY Noise. I released the mini-cdr housed in a floppy disk aka "The Cat EP"
A few months back. And I do believe this is my first Hatred Division release!
As far as Hatred Division go, they are up in my top noisegrind acts. I've just about got everything they have released so far. Which isn't TOO much thankfully.

Super rad and raw noisegrind from HD and noisy bursts of nonsense from GD!

Limited to 50 copies. This is also a repress of the Malaysian press that was limited to 30!
Be weary G.Dork fanatics, this is super limited to don't sleep on it!

Newer stuff that came out recently

Alrighty, playing the last bit of catch up on this.

A while back we had DIY Noise number #73 - Malad - Eat Pussy, Not Animals!

By far my favorite time for a release ever. Malad are very low key in the underground scene in Ukraine.
The notes on their insert alone are a clear indication that they don't care much for their hometown contemporary's.

They have done a release for Old Grinderd Days in which they were featured on a huge comp.
And have splited with Gorgonized Dorks.

Malad play super intense and raw noiseviolence. Imagine the early Godstomper stuff just after they stopped doing Barfos material. This tape runs for about 7 minutes and hardly stops except for the few times these dudes take breathers. It's fuckin hard to play ferocious!

All in all a great release!

Jumping around a bit in catalog releases.

Number 75 is Crowhurst - GRIMGRIMGRIM.

I was supposed to release this tape for the longest time.
Don't know why it took me to long to do this.
I'm at the point now where I'm not taking any more submissions.
I want to finish EVERYTHING that I said was gonna be done before I can continue on with anything else.

Crowhurst is a one man operation by Jay Gambit. Noise extraordinaire who is a pretty big name for the noise scene. I wasn't aware of his popularity when he had came to me. It hit me when I woke up the day after his tape was added to the store when almost all his copies of the tape were virtually sold out.
I forget the word but he is....sought after. And for good reason! His releases generally aren't just mock ups of random noise samples that are thrown together JUST for the sake of being used for a split release.
His noise is on a whole new medium where his ideas are articulated through the noise. His facebook states that he is an art major and from the look of his work you can tell that he takes his craft very seriously.

If you  follow the band Retox, you can see his work in the form of tour date flyers and cover art pieces.

Expect plenty more from Jay Gambit as he recently took some Sordo songs and worked his magic on them.
The product of this will be featured on a 7'' vinyl release if I'm not mistaken.

Only time will tell.

Jumping around up to numer 79

Sposa In Alto Mare - Tribute To Sore Throat.

Sore Throat are a legendary start and stop noisegrind band. They've influenced the likes of any band you can think of that plays songs in less then 7 seconds a piece. Sposa In Alto Mare hail from Italy and are very well known already for the short time being around. Various splits and releases on almost all mediums, I was very happy to be able to bring their awesome grind intensity to a floppy disk.

2 furious blasts on a piece of plastic. One a cover of Sore Throat-the other a cover of Sore Throat who covered Skitslickers.

Last time I'll be jumping around for the day #84

Shitnoise Bastards - Don't Let The Rip Off Bastard Live Rich And Happy...

I'm not sure of the exact title haha but that's almost what it is I think. It's actually a bit longer.

Anyway, SNB are a sick as hell raw noisegrind trio from Malaysia.
It does me soul good when people can just nut up and blare out loud as fuck tunes on whatever way they can record it medium rather then paying a shitload to go record 5 minute grind operas at the studio.
I prefer raw DIY shit to over produced studio rockstar shit anyday.
SNB will show you how it's done. They are constant grinders. Turning every practice into a recording session and using said material to split with bands who all share in the same ideals.
Crushing the airwaves with constant ANTICORE!
