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 Bastard, Big Black. Music played by freaks who write music like they are solving complex math equations. But it's not nerdy. Or dense. Or studious. It's mathematic music in the same way a master tradesperson can look at a roof and tell you the pitch without even thinking.

Gudgeon are the musical equivalent of internalised trigonometry. If you are a Queensland local and reading this, you've probably witnessed their mysterious arithmetic hardcore. They are part of the nu wave of bands blazing new paths, playing shows in more regional areas. (It was Bundaberg last weekend).

Total DIY punks. Providing backline and always up the front making all shows (even the ones they don't play) legendary.

There's only 200 pressed with a limited number on white.

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. Hence the Inner Pyre EP spews forth from the gates of Brisbane City, resulting in some of the best extreme songs to […]

Countdown To Oblivion-Brain Surgery For Beginners 7".

In the last months of the last millennium Australian hardcore went nutso for the band Left For Dead. Resist records and Missing Link must have sold 100s of the buzz saw shaped lp. It had some sort of perfect balance of rawness, smart-assness and baggy-jeansness to appeal to Australia in the very late 90s. It was before hardcore penetrated the suburbs in the way it would in the mid 2000s (Toe to Toe and afew others being the exceptions sort of). Hardcore was still for the freaks, and there was a real set off the fire hose style antics dominating punk. It was sick. Formative years for me. Countdown To Oblivion was the same crowd from Left For Dead and seemed to be even more loose and raw. 2 singers, ripped off Slayer riffs, stories of rowdy shows.

We`ve got afew copies instock now. $10 instore or on the webstore.
