still burning.....

I just found out that Rowland S. Howard has passed away. He was one of the greatest guitar players of all time. Hands down. THE BIRTHDAY PARTY has always been one of my favorite bands. I've always listened to them and loved Rowland's guitar. He was a true genius. This really hurts.

Dear god in heaven. Someone went inside my head and put my subconscious on the internet.

Once Take Back

CROCODILESKINK were a vicious Tokyo band of the crusty kind. Fusing Scandi hardcore influence with Yamato noise, these punks played extremely tight and politically minded music. Harsh is the best way to describe their sound. The songs are built around driving grooves, cutting deep and jagged. Sadly, CROCODILESKINK didn't record a whole lot over their seven active years. This cd compiles their studio recordings (in reverse chronological order for some reason). It gives a great record of a band whose work deserves more attention.

An extra special thanks to COOL FOOL for sharing this. 先生、何時も最高な音楽をアップして下さって、心から感謝します!

CROCODILESKINK: a compilation of 38 tracks recorded 1990-1997
