Saw Psycho/Afternoon Gentlemen/Human Junk last night, good show but once again rather under-attended.
Afternoon Gentlemen pretty killer grind with 2 bassists, definitely going to check them out further.
Psycho were great too, super cool guys as well, got their entire discography across 3 CDs, nice after just having the mp3s for years.

I just read about The Afternoon Gentlemen in MRR. Will be checking out their stuff.
Anyone going to see Wormrot on tour soon? They're playing a two-day fest in Dublin in September with Doom and a bunch of other hardcore, crust and grind bands. Haven't actually been to a grind gig yet (Napalm Death excepted) so I'm looking forward to it!
Listening to the Psudoku album out on 625 right now, it's pretty fantastic on first pass.

caught doom with dropdead about a month ago. they were fun but played waaaaaay too long. there's a reason most grind albums are about 20-30 min.
dropdead were pretty amazing tbh.

Wormrot are fantastic live. You're gonna have a blast (no pun intended).

Saw Doom last year and they were awesome, would love to see them again. Didn't think they played too long at all, but then I am pretty familiar with their catalog :)

Super into the akbk album now that I've heard it. Like a really freakin tight band grindin it out while a noisier greg ginn solos off to the side. The songwriting is a cut above and material that could have come off as a disjointed, proggy mess in lesser hands really shines here. It all flows even with the occasional curveball but all with a fine layer of guitar skree lathered on top and subverting your expectations. Which is key!

^^^kind of cliched-sounding now that I'm reading that back. I'm no writer but I just want to make this one sound cool. because it is!

also doing a bit of a disservice to focus on the guitar noise. it's the most novel aspect the band has going for it but hardly the only thing worth writing about. the drumming is particularly strong and always compliments the action here.
also a fan of the vox. often trading off between low growls and high shrieks but always with a ton of reverb on top. some delay effects here-and-there as well. struggling to think of a comparison... maybe incantation for the lower growls? that doesn't quite get at it but they are similarly atmospheric.
and, in general, there are nods to black metal but nothing too overt. I personally appreciate that they don't overdo it. lots of newer hardcore bands blending in bm can strike me as ham-fisted. but I'm cool with the occasional frostbitten riff which is what we have right here.

So what's this about Shane from Phobia being "the Ike Turner of grindcore" (according to ANb's Jay Randall)?

From the ANb Twitter account: ""Shane Phobia is the Ike Turner of grindcore, long history of beating girls up when he's drunk and if you think that's cool -we ain't... Gave Shane Phobia plenty of time to figure out what he and his brother owed us and to stop bootleggin'/selling our shit on ebay -times up!...Shane Phobia went ahead with doing ANB merch without working a deal with us first and has I guess sold it for years now without paying us a dime... So glad I've been unknowingly contributing to this fuckin' piece of shit crust punks beer fund for years now -fuck Shane Phobia."
