Label News.

Ok... here is a text heavy posting. It's been a while so I thought I would throw down a Sweat Lung Label update.

First of all Ian Wadley will be headed to the US for SXSW and a bundle of other shows, keep an eye out here for dates.

Both the Chris Smith Justin Fuller & Ian Wadley cds will be available soon at Aquarius Records in the US and are available now at Missing Link or email getonthehorse[@] to buy them direct.

The release scheduled as Sweat Lung 005 (Malakat) is traveling in the space plain of Simon & Edryan which Will at sometime in the future connect with the Sweat Lung time line but at this point visual confirmation has not been confirmed.

Next up on Sweat Lung will be the following release:
Sweat Lung 007: Justice Yeldham - CD
Bloody noise from the red spattered glass of Lucas Abela.

Sweat Lung 008: Magnetics - CD
Ben Andrews (Blarke Bayer / My Disco etc) & Sarah Heyward (The Focus) produce shimmering sounds from guitar & percussion with beautiful vocals. An amazing duo.

Sweat Lung 009: Blarke Bayer / Bone Sheriff - Split CD
Blarke Bayer is Ben Andrews exploring drone & harsh tones, with a previous 3" cd release on Numerical Thief BB on this outing finds himself accompanied but the primal alcohol fueled sonics of Bone Sheriff, Rob Mayson (Grey Daturas / EOH / Maggoted) & Simon Taylor (Whitehorse / Malakat).

All three of these release are not too distant from being completed, with any luck they will be available over the next couple of months.

More soon

731 - Are You Ready To Grind

Okay so a little self indulgence here. 731 is my new band, the music we play is on the punk end of the grind scale, you can check out a couple of tracks here. The band features current and ex-members of Odiusembowel, Sense Of Purpose, Terror Firma, Fallout and Whitehorse. The first four photos were taken by Duncan of awesome long running Melbourne death-grinders Shagnum on his phone camera. If you look carefully you can make out Extraordinary G, playing guitar and I Quit drumming away at the back.

It was a killer first show playing with Damage Digital (Japan), Agents Of Abhorrence, Dad They Broke Me and Aeroflot.

This picture show a clearer story and was taken by The Budge (who rules) when we played at the Greenroom (RIP) with Guantanamo Bay City Rollers, Dad They Broke Me and Pisschrist.

Limp Wristies

So, a good portion of my summer revolved around the Limp Wrist tour of Australia that with a bit of help from a bunch of friends and a amazing show of support from fans all over Australia was a ripping good time and more fun than you can poke a stick at.

I only have a couple of photos to put up.. so here goes.

DX "Distort" and Scott.

Martin ass up at the Manacle, Sydney.

Scott wrestling the guitar at the Manacle, Sydney.

3 'Sweet Melons' somewhere in northern New South Wales: Scott, Pete (me) and Paul.
