Thought we’d throw a spanner in the works of the glut of Oz wave pyjama gear with this pile-driving breakcore straight outta’ the Newcastle badlands. This Xylocaine 7” is the latest in the series reliving the unemployed, white middle-class boredom relief that became the
Bloody Fist glory days on this fit-for-purpose 7” label, Old Rope, run by the big fist himself, Mark Newlands of Nasenbluten. Coming in welcome BF, ruffneck style, Aaron Lubinski (who also ran the excellent dEAdGirL label around the same time) yaks up three tracks of heavy, antisocial mid-90s beat science / aggro bush-doof- like a squad of antipodean Geordies
shoving DJ Sy down the stairs of a double-decker bus on it's way to Bangface, all boiled down into a frantic, but ultimately, BLOODY good fun, sampledelic sensory overload. All Oz grime donking aside, a refreshing lack of pretension catapults this record into this weeks mailer as we race to the bottom of the 2018 eoy wastebin - it’s a nosebleed time machine and middle-finger counterpoint to the polished post-internet branding of (everything) today. Treat yourself this Christmas with a healthy dose of skullfuckery.
