More Wild Sound.

Last night I meant to do some catching up but got sidetracked with the interesting output of guitarist and songwriter Mark Palm. So here's what's new in my inbox from the bands and labels I follow on bandcamp:

Houston's Crime Wave I think is defunct but uploaded a few of their albums onto bandcamp today. I've got their Agro-Wax album Nazi Sex/Convulsion Gospels and it's rad. Here's an outtake from the recording session of that LP:

From London's La Vida Es Un Mus Discos, this is, according to the bandcamp page, the "official reissue of (a scarce) Dutch punk (record)...THE VULTURES hailed from Epe, in the middle of the Dutch Bible-Belt. They recorded this 4 Track EP in 1981...Reissued replicating the artwork as originally printed but adding a few unseen full colour pictures on the reverse sleeve."

They call it a "masterpiece of Dutch punk." Pretty cool. Who knew there was a Dutch Bible-Belt.

Tramp Records always puts out good re-issues. This was originally released on Philly's Toxsan Records, I think in the 70s:

From Virginia's Grave Mistake Records:

From France's Frantic City Records:

That's it for the updates from CNQ faves. Here's some new releases I like.

Leather Daddy is awesome hc from Boston:

Wild stuff from Costa Rica:

These hc rockers from Budapest are really into Tony Soprano, with four songs featuring him in the title.

Heavy sound from Italy - is it powergrind when you can't tell if it's powerviolence or grindcore?

The end of all reality sounds like 12 minutes and 3 seconds of Ontario's VOMIR. Impossibly the polar opposite of music, horrible noise, awesome:

Dynamite Hemorrhage's latest show is about an hour of always awesome rock'n'roll from Jay and the gang out there somewhere in the Northwest, I think. Love that podcast. Here's a crazy new song from Cincinnati that the 'Hemorrhage featured first in their most recent podcast, but ya know, it's a great song so here it is again:

Don't forget to check out CNQ's music-blog buds Styrofoam Drone.

Madd Blake and the Stalins, Miss Her Beer, and Mark Palm

Man I need to share a 45 to stay legit. Maybe next week. In the meantime, here's some new stuff.

Madd Blake and the Stalins are from Puerto Rico and play Cramps-inspired "primitive rock'n'roll," which I can dig for sure. Here's a live video from their first live gig, performed just last week. Bless this Internet!

CNQ's gunk-buddy jllull has a new rock'n'roll print zine called Miss Her Beer so go order it after you're done here. She's also been keeping a music blog called Punk Gunk that I've been unaware of until this evening, but glad I found out about it. The name, I think, is inspired by the Punk Gunk, Garage, Psych & Wild Shit facebook page, a turntable.fm group that, after turntable.fm's mishandling and demise, stuck around and kept cool.

Blogger's having problems with its blog list widget, by the way. I'm proud of the ridiculously long blog list I have that dates back three years, but keeps the most recently posted blogs at the top (featured at right on the web browser version of this page). Sometimes I think I might should clear out the ones that haven't posted in over a year but who knows, maybe Crud Crud will post again one day. Anyway, it won't let me add to it right now.

From Germany's Hardware Records, tape release of this '80s style hc punk solo project of guitarist and songwriter Mark Palm:

I've never heard of Mark Palm, but he's apparently a busy dude. Here's more hc from him, this from 2014:

Palm is also in this more poppy band Supercrush. This is from June of 2014:

...and in this SF-based shoegaze act, Modern Charms. This is from 2013:

He's in the totally metal Black Breath:

I think he got his start in this band Go It Alone:

And a sort of metal sounding project called Devotion followed that. This is from 2008:

Here's an interview with Palm talking about Night Prowler. And here's what I think is his bigcartel site, KRAM Records.

Finally, in the shameless self-promotion department, here's a new two song EP from my new band, Badger Carcass (stylized as BDGRKRKZ). We're calling it post-garbage because it's like, what comes after garbage.

New Music.

Dallas' warpcore purists Pavel Chekov have a new split with Mississippi's Criminal Slang coming out in ten days. Here's the Pavel Checkov side -- 10 minute, 11 song blast:

The Internet doesn't seem to have anything from the Criminal Slang side of that release, but this is a song of theirs from March 2014:

Cool Ramonesy rock'n'roll from Ohio. This was released back in 2010, but Berlin's Alien Snatch is offering it up for sale thru digital, CD, and vinyl:

From Sweden and PNKSLM:

Portland's Resurrection Records is offering this colored 7" split featuring Hag Face and Babysitter. Hag Face are from Alberta. This is wild.

Powerviolence from Edinburgh:

Egghunt Records has this new synth-pop from Denver available on black vinyl 7":
