Gritty. Manic. Visceral. Nauseating. The videos is pretty much of a similar ilk also. Super Narco Man mark their debut through MUZAI Records with the release of their video for Near Kill Experience, taken from their forthcoming album Dank Mammoth Deluxe.
It’s been a few months since the release of i.e. crazy’s album Non Compos Mentis, a “wonderfully neurotic and idiosyncratic” record that walks “that tight rope between discordant and melodic”. (Overblown.co.uk) i.e. crazy continues to tow the line of discomfort and delicate touch, returning today with a game of sensory roulette. Praying Mantis features chop-up
(Photo – Rikki) Adorning the front cover of our very first zine and proving that internet friendships in the MSN Messenger era can still exist in present day, Dharma Dogs pin their fuzz-rock hearts on their sleeves with their almost earnest anthology of EP works with the full length Music For The Terminally Besotted, released
We got tired of not getting too much coverage in the printed medium over the past 12 months (give or take). So we decided to create our own printed medium. Analogue Seppuku is us standing on the ledge of commercial self-destruction, martyring ourselves by introducing the world to a number of artists at the same time.

Girls Pissing on Girls Pissing’s genre-bending sonic ambulations are, for ease of description, perhaps best loosely termed as folk/no-wave. Yet ultimately they aren’t so easy to define. The group’s sound is both disease and panacea for the faintest of hearts, a desperately melodic sensibility shrouded in dour difficulty; sugar syrup spiked. The acclaimed (and now
