CLONE MUTANT - Return to the Sewer Demo Tape - BHR#1

Bad Habit Records started with a totally unplanned release.

In the second version of the Bad Habit retail shop in Ipswich City, every Saturday a local guy would come in and proceed to tell us how shit all the records we had were. If you've ever worked in a record shop you'll understand how you grow a pretty high tolerance for punishers and wacky regulars. But one Saturday I cracked it at this guy and said he can't come in here and bag everything out until he's produced something that blows everyone else away.

The guy laid low for a few weeks and didn't come in, at which point I started to feel a little guilty and wondered if my response had been too harsh. Turns out I shouldn't have worried. A few weekends later, he comes in with a box of tapes. He'd recorded a demo. A homemade one-person demo just using free to download programs. And it's actually some half-decent programmed drums death thrash.

As I looked at one of the pixelated ink jet printed covers he'd made for the tapes, I noticed it said Bad Habit Records #1.  Hence a label was born. Old mate earned his right to be an annoying punisher I'd say.

Release date - August 2018

Print run - 100 I think

Format - Cassette Tape

Listen - Return To The Sewer, by Clone Mutant

After the great plague, Oratory reformed with a clear vision to forge Sepultura's Chaos AD with Celtic Frost, Discharge, Neurosis and Abscess into some hardened weapon-grade steel in the form of three songs.

Gudgeon — Self Titled LP black vinyl

How does one describe Gudgeon? They have existed as a band for nearly a decade. They have been jamming and writing songs that whole time. In isolation, they evolved. Like some sort of Galapagos Island music project. Their closest relatives would be the already weird and outsider brands of punk. Think Nomeansno, Man Is The […]
