FIRST RELEASE FOR
NEW RS OFFSHOOT LABEL SWAP MEAT
first release on my new offshoot label SWAP MEAT is
nearly ready. It's a cassette only release from our
old muckers MAINLINER. 'Live In London Twenty
Thirteen' is a 60 minute recording taken from the
bands Corsica Studios gig last September. Mixed by
Makoto from three separate source recordings, it's a
little gem. It's still fairly rough n ready, so
don't expect Frampton Comes Alive sound quality ...
I hope to be posting them out before the end of the
month and pre orders are bing taken now. The tape costs £6 plus postage and is
available on either orange or green cassettes. It's
a limited one off run of 80 numbered copies.

EARTHLING SOCIETY 'ENGLAND HAVE MY BONES'
next Riot Season release of the year will be
Earthling Society's new album 'England Have My
Bones'. Sadly due to the Record Store Day generated
vinyl pressing delays, we'll probably looking at a
mid to late June release date now. The album
features four songs, including a majestic cover of
Alice Coltrane's 'Journey In Satchidananda' and is a
bit of a musical departure for the label i guess.
It's a lot less noisy/in your face than recent
releases, it has more of a psych/space rock feel. I
think the Acid Mothers fans will certainly love it.
The album will be available on vinyl and download. I
may knock out a few tapes too. More news as and when
can listen to 'Journey In Satchidananda'
album will be available on vinyl (REPOSELP040) and
digitally. No CD release is planned at the moment.
Pre-Order details will be announced early May via
the RS mailing list (sign up link above)

HENRY BLACKER are a rock band, a three piece, two from the group
HEY COLOSSUS and a brother on the drums. These are the times
they thought, let’s: WHOOP AND A HOLLER. Recorded August 2013
for £450 by Westminster Brown (Tim Cedar, Part Chimp) at the
legendary Dropout studios, South London whilst a man from Torche
"Finally England provides a credible power trio. Fans of 70's
heavy boogie will love it, but it'll also appeal to folk that
dig Clint Foetus, Rapeman, Kyuss, Uncle Acid, Melvins, QOTSA/Desert
Sessions. One of the (many) things I like about Hey Colossus
(with whom Henry Blacker share two members) is their unrepentant
Rockist streak, and boy is that made manifest on this offshoot.
The album starts with a riff that would sit quite happily on 'Grand Funk', 'Blues for the Red Sun' or ZZ's classic 'Deguello', but within seconds the Henry Blacker English
Power-Boogie identity is patented. Some of the vocals treatments
are classic Billy Gibbons (the Manic Mechanic sprang to mind)
meets early QOTSA era Josh Homme. Available on vinyl and a
limited run cassette from Riot Season, the cassette is strangely
appropriate because these eight musings on aging, power, and
failure are driving music. This is the album that the maniac in
the monster truck is playing as he triesto mow you down in a
70's drive-in movie. It's the album Kowalski is playing to keep
his drug and fatigue-addled mind alive as he heads for the
Vanishing Point.” (Toby Mearing)

more reviews on the release pages
with a sad heart that i have to report our old chums
Dethscalator have decided to call it a day. I'm not
sure of the exact reasons but i think it's amicable.
Such a crying shame that after finally getting their
debut album released (Racial Golf Course No
Bitches) and it gaining such acclaim from all
quarters. A GREAT band and a great bunch of lads.
Hopefully the lads will continue to make music. I'll
pass on any news of new developments as soon (or if)
i get any. RIP
