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!

Long Haul...2013

I told myself that I wouldn't allow myself to fall behind again on updating releases.
I did, and am regretting it so much.

We left off at number #60  and so to play a lazy game of catch up i'll do a tiny write up on each thing I've done since.

#61 - Actuary/Lost Appeal.

Awesome group of people from both acts. Actuary play a fusion of noise and even at times mix in pv elements (if memormy serves correct). Lost Appeal is the solo noise man Andrew Lipscomb from Operation Grindcore.

Excellent stuff from both these acts, limited to 50 tapes. Some sprayed blue.

If you kept up with this then you'll know what a hassle it was.
From all the constant emails from bands wanting to submit music to bands not being able to pay for their own postage to get their own copies. Over 75 bands submitted, most from Asain parts. Lots of em thought I was gonna cough up the cash to mail em their tapes.

TONS of bands on a c-122. Don't think anybody has released a musical c-122. Lots of noise bands, grind bands, punk bands, one hip-hop dude.
Still available. Right now for free too.

#63Stressors - Wailing and Gnashing of The Teeth
Super rad harsh hardcore punk.
This was a repress of the tape they released on their own.
Limited to 100 copies. All of which are gone now.

#64 Calafiaputa/Corrupt Bastards
SICK as hell split.
Calafiaputa are a Tijuana PV band and Corrupt Bastards are a Texan drum and bass PV band.
Both rule so hard, this split was killer and a pleasure to release.

#65 Cryptic Yeast - Floppy
I had done one floppy so far to date and it was the Gripe/Chulo split.
Since I had a floppy drive and extra floppies I figured I could do another one!
Cryptic Yeast dish out two tunes of rad cyber trash!
Given out as a freebie with orders.

#66 Shitnoise Bastards - Raw Demo
All the SEA bands reall pop outta no where.
Bands just jump in and stay in forever putting out endless amounts of splits.
Shitnoise Bastards tuned in for the grind race with the release of their s/t demo.
Super raw noisegrind sharing members of hatred Division and Diseksa.
30 tapes were made and sprayed red and black.
Handed out as a freebie with orders.

#67 Gorgonized Dorks - The Cat E.P
Katz really has a life that I envy. From the outside looking in, all he does is record music and collect records!
He sent me new material that he wanted released. It came down that it would be done on a mini-cdr.
I hadn't done many mcd's in a while since the Larva/Lost Appeal cd and the CLI demo.
I had around 40 or so left over. No cases though, so instead I used my newly overabundant supply of floppy disks given to me by my older brother.

Each mini-cd was housed inside a floppy disk.
All sold out, but still available from Ben Agro.

#68 Grinchfinger - In Tune With Grind (repress)
Grinchfinger just rule. Nothing needs to be said about them. If your a fan then you'll know why.
If you're not aware of them then get in touch for straight ripping rot/Agx worship.
Super raw grind, so rad.

#69 Sordo/Knifewound - Split Tape
This tape was supposed to be released a lloooooooooooong time ago under #1 Dad Records.
Olin pulled the plug on the label and with it all subsequent label releases.
The stuff came round back and I ended up doing a DIY release of it.
All gone now but still out there if your looking for some of the more raw/grindy matieral Sordo has done.

#70 Sete Star Sept - Tripple Floppy Release.

When people hear about how your label releases floppies a number of things go through their mind.
1. "Wow, he released a floppy disc? What a waste, if anything just release a cd-r. That way I can play it on my Ipod."
2."Haha that's pretty cool, but how on earth will I be able to play it? I just donated my old Mac to the Salvation Army!"
3. "Sick! Sete Star Sept on a floppy! Now I can hear this super dope noisegrind on my USB floppy drive that only cost me three packs worth of cigs to get on Ebay!"
4. "I wonder if he'll do our band on Floppy Disk?"

Yes, Sete Star Sept got in touch with me to do super exclusive material they had made JUST for a floppy disk release. They told me they didn't want it on a vinyl, a tape, cd, 8-track or online. JUST a floppy disc.
Word's gotten around on it though so blogs have already managed to rip the audio online.

Only I and SSS however have the master tracks ;)

Everybody else will have to suffice on 32 KBPS mp3's of some of the best Noisegrind goin on right now.

#71 Sordo/Hipster Trash - Split

Probably my favorite split release of the bunch that I've done with Sordo.
A number of reasons, one being that we used a huge barrage of Iron Mike Tyson audio samples.
The tunes sound awesome as they were left over trimmings from out 7'' recordings.
We split with HP, who were my third favorite PV band to come out of Ventura County.
Awesome stuff from them, they just need to record more and put out a shitton more splits.

#72 Samedi - Voodoo Mince Core.
I was contacted by this unknown musician over the web via G.Mail or facebook I don't remember where exactly.

What they told me (in very broken English) was that they were from a small town in Mexico. They worshiped Mince Core. And they wanted someone to release their demo.

It was only around a 2 minute demo with some oddly good sounding recordings.
Small village or not, these dudes obviously had some cash to get together some decent recording/performing gear. Only 20 were made as requested by the band. Which I thought was a shame because I think it could of done real well on a tape for a split or comp or something.

Really good stuff. Liked it alot. Gave it away as freebies in orders.


That's all I have so far on the page.
I haven't updated the FB just yet so once I get it updated I'll post again here.

Take care all!
