I’ve added a new gallery to the Flyers page with scans of a magazine that came with a compilation cd from an old Melbourne record label called Deported Records. Deported was run by a guy called Scott Harper who was also the singer of Magnacite for their amazing Safety In The Workplace album and also produced or engineered such legendary releases as the Blood Duster’s Menstrual Soup demo, Damaged’s Do Not Spit and Christbait’s Yeast. The label only put out about 6 releases including a Beanflipper album and the Subversion/Spazz split cd but for me this was the highlight and I treasure my copy of it.
The interviews contained here are mostly hilarious with the Blood Duster and Beanflipper ones being highlights as well as Jason from Blood Duster interviewing Magnacite and asking some nicely inane questions. The compilation cd has some amazing stuff on there with most of it unavailable elsewhere and some rarities like one of the last Necrotomy tracks recorded and also a recording of part of an impromptu live jam of Fear Factory and Christbait members which I’m pretty sure is mostly a Brujeria song.
Below is my favourite song off the compilation which is a live version of Coinslot My Butt Crack from Melbourne sludge gods Christbait. This version is a bit faster than the Dirtypunkmutha version and nearly captures the sheer power of their live performances. The bloke who uploaded this clip appears to have the whole compilation and plenty of other goodies so check him out here.
This is one of my most charming metal shirts from Californian death metal blokes Impaled and their first album The Dead Shall Dead Remain. Fairly self explanatory cover of some poor chap having a unfortunate time on the bogger. I had the pleasure of seeing them play this whole album live at MDF in 2014 and finally got to see the song Trocar which I love so much.
I remember wearing this to a gig at the legendary old Canberra metal venue Rock Ape and having a drunken nightmare woman come up to me and try and read the logo. I really wish I could remember what she came up with but it certainly wasn’t Impaled. She didn’t seem to be offended by the photo though. All class.
