VARIOUS – ‘HAIKU FUCKS’ COMPILATION 7”

600 hand-numbered copies w/ download code

This 7” features a total of 14 tracks from 14 bands from all over the UK. Some of these bands have already built up a considerable discography whilst for others this is their first release. Here’s a list of those implicated…

SHOWER OF BASTARDS. From Norwich and now, sadly, defunct. I saw them once and was smitten with their noise. Cannot wait to see what ex-members do next.

THE DOMESTICS. Having just released their second album (‘Routine & Ritual’) and about to release a split 7” with VOLUNTEERS, this lot are one of the busiest bands on the EAHC scene. A mix of the best of US, UK and Japanese HC.

CHILDE. From Ireland, this is essentially a one man band featuring Phillip from ZEN FUCK UPS. It definitely has bits of BLACK FLAG and OFF! in the mix with some other, harder-to-pin-down stuff. Check out their ‘Living or Dying’ album.

SKINNERS. Saw these West Country types at The Red Lion in Bristol in late 2014 and was blown away with their manic thrash. A young band that are hopefully going to play all over in the coming year. If you get the chance to see them don’t miss it!

NASTY BASTARD. Featuring ex-members of Southend’s mighty DEATHSKULLS and members of THE FILAMENTS, this is post-oi! aggro music of the highest order and straight outta Essex. Fucking great.

BOYCOTT THE BAPTIST. Like manic, hyperspeed thrash/power violence/spazz-core? Like two fellas dressing up as nuns to play such unholy noise? You’ve just found your new favourite band.

RATRAVEN. Once described to me as “like Disclose in a bucket” and y’know that does give some indication of what’s going on here. It’s definitely crusty, it’s definitely d-beat, it’s also definitely great.

DIS-TANK. This lot have a 10 song 7” out any week now. It’s essentially a side-project of one of THE DOMESTICS. It’s d-beat with distortion, reverb and astonishingly catchy tunes. Writing and recording of an album will commence over the summer of 2015.

BRAINFREEZE. Ex-BICKLES CAB members, this Sheffield-based band are relative vets of their scene. They remind me a bit of the mighty OUT COLD and are a cracking live too. Love it. More of this!

51st STATE. More West Country boys. This time a bass/drums two-piece. Anarcho with a definite touch of SUBHUMANS. Seen them live a couple of times and definitely will again. With added didge.

THE MIGRAINES. Another young band, although they’ve been going for a few years now. Really great live and Matty’s a great frontman (even if he hasn’t got a clue what song’s coming next!). Also featured on the Kibou Records ‘Without Kibou There is Nothing Vol. 1’ compilation if you can still find a copy.

FORCED EXISTENCE. My favourite track so far from this Bury St Edmunds based three-piece. Frontman Dave is in about a dozen different bands (including SPECIAL DUTIES) but FE are my favourite.

THE SHORTS. Made up of Southampton scene stalwarts, including Tony of the long-running SUSPECT DEVICE fanzine, this lot do exactly what you’d expect a band called THE SHORTS to do – play fast, tight, short punk songs with a passion.

VOLUNTEERS. Near-legends in East Anglian hardcore circles. A band that turned a lot of people onto harder, faster sounds in the early to mid 00’s, Stopped kids thinking punk was Green Day. Still fucking awesome live (I’ve toured with them so I’ve seen them a lot – they never disappoint). DIY as fuck.

Kibou Records has one of those 'large cartel' sites that you can get this and a ton of other cool stuff from. It also has a Faceache page to keep up to date with activities.
