SIMO SOO (Album Launch) + GENTLE HURST + SHARK BAIT + BIG DUMB KID

"Rap, noise, punk, swear words, pitched snares and vocals turned into robot circle jerks, Canada's genius music interviewer Nardwuar The Human Serviette on the outro, both members of Collarbones on separate tracks on vox and production, Big Dumb Kid rapping bout smoking weed & scabbing money from your mum, dubstep mashed into noise breakcore messiness, screaming, lo-fi psych turned into electro rap, songs about love, partying, loving, party and getting lost on your own in the streets of Oakland at 2am, musical nods to Suicide, Gucci Mane, Devo, DJ Screw and Andrew WK (most of the time on the same track).

All this and more on the new Simo Soo LP (which is titled Simo Soo LP) out October 7 on Lesstalk Records. His third release on the label, bits of which were recorded in Australia, USA and Canada. Features artwork by Sydney photographer Holly May and XBXRX drummer Kyle Mabson. Available in digital download and retro CD form."

Sydney grindy/fastcore/powerviolence, originally called Ballistic Assault Unit. Members seemed to be in lots of bands, but the only ones that come to mind are Dot Dot Dot and maybe Hypno-Toad...can you fill in the gaps?
Recorded December 2001 with Fred Rodrigues. These tracks were originally intended for a split with Brisbane's Brain Resin on Deplorable Records ages ago, then Spin Control was going to do something with it up 'til fairly recently I think...all to no avail. Finally up and available here now, 10 years and untold dead braincells later. Enjoy.
