sipping hot chocolate dosed with whiskey while ROOT ROT played their first show since last year @ sad rad, surrounded by the unforgiving ocean & often gloomy landscape of point pleasant park. dog walkers were confused by the noise but disappeared as quickly as the cloud covered sun. in the dark, GRUMP set up second & played through their new demo while the cement turned to black ice & I fell onto my palms. 4-LOM played last with frozen fingers & candles falling off the amps. by far one of the best shows to happen this year... & it was on a sunday in the wooded trails of the south end, in december & yet you weird chilly fuckers still came out, supported & slayed. hope the walk home was safe & not a slippy death ride like ours was.
halifax punx/ sad rad life/ fuck the bars/ squat the bunkers etc.
don't miss out on the show this saturday! see ya then.
root rotwere around for a little while between 2011 & 2012, playing sporadic shows that often felt like they were on the verge of falling apart... they were special though & this tape, although only a handful of copies were made is one of my favourite demos from any halifax band.
luckily popular american punk blog, remote outposts ripped it & threw it online, & now whoever didn't grab the last copies from the sad rad distro can hear it in all it's shambly anarcho glory.
root rot are going to be playing a few shows coming up soon after a long hiatus so look out for those details.
you can download the tape, & read the little nice anecdote & review on remote outposts here.
are a group of miscreants living on the east coast who are wanting to
put together a compilation album that celebrates anti-speciesist revolt
and all beings' resistance to human existence. We're passionate about
animal liberation, direct action and ending civilisation. We feel that
the human domination over this planet needs to end and we love&fight
for a world that rejects labels, borders and heirarchy of all kinds.
Up da liberated wild!
inspired by the flurry of actions that push towards the liberation of
all species, in particular the destruction of the police training centre
in Portishead, UK which was done in conjunction with the start of a
state-sanctioned badger cull, and the new, exciting collaborations
happening between ELF and CCF cells in places like Moscow. As well, we
cheer to hear about the many actions taken by beings who are enslaved
and captured everywhere for the profit of humans; from hens escaping
their slaughter - to chimps mauling their captors - to tigers failing to
perform their tricks and instead attacking their attackers - to human
prisoners fighting the apparatus from the inside, we celebrate the
actions taken by beings towards liberated freedom.
would love an original submission from you for the album because your
creativity inspires us and we think you're great. Pass this call-out
around to anyone you think would be excited about this project; we're
open to all styles of music, or other audio projects (poetry, etc), and
if you feel you'd like to collaborate on this in some other way (album
art, etc) then please get in touch! All proceeds from sales on bandcamp
and in real life will go towards prisoner support and anti-speciesist
projects in the northeast. We're hoping to start compiling everything
in early Feb, so if you're wanting to contribute, try to do so before
