London psych, I like this a lot:

A tribute to Spazz from Edinburgh's Mindripper Collective. Per Wikipedia, Spazz was an influential powerviolence band from California during the 90s. I didn't even know powerviolence was a thing in the 1990s, and I lived all of them, more or less. I think I woulda identified this stuff as "crust punk" back then. Anyway, listen to this whole thing if you're into this wild heavy metal/punk hybrid stuff they call grindcore/powerviolence/crust/etc....
