Sick Grindcore Fucks: SMG

Hisham pass me the new SMG recordings and it is definitely the best thing I've heard from them so far. And I am not making that one up just because I used to be in this band. Check out their myspace page and check it out for yourself (you can stream the mp3s or download it). These guys deserve every fucking respect they can get and to all those who talk shit about them... get a fucking life (and learn to broaden your musical scope).
Here are some "interesting" facts about the new recordings; The songs are recorded live in less than half an hour (they book the studio for an hour but arrive there late) and Hisham was involved in an accident a few hours before the recording took place. Lesser band will surely crumble under those circumstances but this band definitely deliver the goods when needed. Awesome!

R.I.P. Pig Champion

Thanks for the awesome music...

Thomas "Pig Champion" Roberts, guitarist for POISON IDEA, died at his home in Portland, Oregon, Monday night (Jan. 30). A founding member of the seminal punk band, he continued to appear with POISON IDEA throughout the late Nineties and into the new millennium, despite officially quitting the band in 1993. Variously described as "spectacularly fat," and "the single largest man in hardcore history," Roberts crowned himself "Pig Champion" after hitting an impressive 450 lbs. on the scales. The highly regarded guitarist was revered by a devoted following worldwide. No further information is available at this time.

Just in case you have never checked them out, go here and here and download some of the mp3's.
