Thinking with Sand - in situ

<a href="http://thinkingwithsand.bandcamp.com/album/in-situ">not yet by Thinking with Sand</a>

3rd EP from the ultra-slack shoegaze losers. Waves of guitar sizzle, endless reverb, twinkling synths and head-raping noise. Originally packaged in a envelope and given away free at the Joy Collective Xmas party on 27th December 2007. Now yours to enjoy direct from the intermaweb!

Octofelis - Cocaine and Monstertruckz

<a href="http://octofelis.bandcamp.com/album/cocaine-and-monstertruckz">no ur alive by Octofelis</a>

Do you like industrial music? No, not that kind of industrial music. Nor that kind. Nope not that kind either...you know...the kind where it's all rave stabs and ZZ Top samples and non-sensical lyrics about fetishes and drugs and that. No? Oh well...

The Spider Kitten Atomck Orchestra - Descension

<a href="http://spiderkitten.bandcamp.com/album/descension">Descension (part one) by Spider Kitten</a>

An improvised psyche-doom nightmare recorded live in Newport. This was the first time the assembled musicians had played together in front of an audience. I cant really describe it, you should just listen to it. Why do you need me to tell you what it sounds like? huh? You've got ears! What am I, your mum?

King Size Slim - Rugland Sessions

<a href="http://kingsizeslim.bandcamp.com/album/rugland-sessions">Side One by King Size Slim</a>

SNR's first HIPHOP release, with real rapping, yo. Recorded over a few evenings at Rugland Studios in South Wales in 2007. Fueled by beer and rap drugs this motley cru put down their rhymez over some phat beatz, yo. The result is a mixtape, the like of which you ain't never seen, yo. Produced by South Wales' finest, the Blackwood Bomber himself, King Size Slim.

Spider Kitten - Ineffable

<a href="http://spiderkitten.bandcamp.com/album/ineffable">An Introduction by Spider Kitten</a>

Debut CD release from reclusive doomsters. Released in 2007 this is Spider Kitten's Master of Reality. Stoned and miserable in the face of adversity, Ineffable can justifiably be called Downer Rock. Think Sabbath covering early Nirvana. Go on, think it. Now download this and see if I was lying...

Chi Lameo - The White Album

<a href="http://chilameo.bandcamp.com/album/the-white-album">Back In The USSR by Chi Lameo</a>

Picture the scene: You're at home, alone. It's the evening, maybe around 8pm. You've had dinner (waffles and beans), a few beers, you're relaxed. There's nothing on TV, so you decided to listen to some music. No Death Metal because it doesn't suit your current mood. Then it hits you...The White Album. You haven't given that a spin for a while. You can't even remember how most of Side 3 goes anymore. Yes, this will be a good evening's listening. A worthwhile audio treat from 1968. Then, of course, dissapointment and anger as you realise you've put on this version by Spider Kitten frontman Chi, instead of the original.

CEMENTIMENTAL - cementimental's slammy cd-shammie

<a href="http://cementimental.bandcamp.com/album/cementimentals-slammy-cd-shammie">Intro by Cementimental</a>

PRE-NOISE the BOMB from 1906.. well actually from early 2002 but that's pretty long ago. With this box of gak DR AGE begins his tortuous tenure of twisted tonal terror- stupidity abounds as does general half-arsed foolishness. CUT IT UP AND SHOE IT IN!!

Chuck Brogan Jr - Sour Mash

<a href="http://chuckbroganjr.bandcamp.com/album/sour-mash">Mid Night Dance by Chuck Brogan Jr</a>

Chuck Brogan is a mean sonabitch from Lincoln, New Mexico. This album was created in tribute to him. He is a low down dirty rotten no good 2-bit bum and if he knew about this release he'd be fucking livid. So, by all means, enjoy these seven tracks of whisky sodden country punk, but, whatever the fuck you do, don't tell Chuck!

Octofelis - Green Rince

&amp;amp;amp;lt;a href="http://octofelis.bandcamp.com/album/green-rince"&amp;amp;amp;gt;thl33t'st by Octofelis&amp;amp;amp;lt;/a&amp;amp;amp;gt;

Ptew is the technical BOFFIN behind Spider Kitten's eerie synths and more. Described by Fashionista Afficianardo as "BOY GENIUS SCALES GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE" Ptew knows his onions. This release is essentially a mix of all the BANGING ELECTRO he made in 2004. Turn it up loud and spazz round your living room. Go on!

<a href="http://bronzeagemillionaire.bandcamp.com/album/chinese-year-of-the-beard">intro by BRONZE AGE MILLIONAIRE</a>

Flash-in-the-pan casio-garage-punk twats finally cough up a release. The first half was recorded in spring 2005. After this the band split due to chief creative visionary Moore-o The Eye leaving to write, direct and star in hit BBC television show Torchwood. They reformed in spring 2006 to half-finish the job. BAM then split for good(?) that summer following a violent clash with fellow Newport scenesters frommars over alledged allegations made in top-ten single "frommars are cocks". CHINESE YEAR OF THE BEARD is a testament to what can be achieved with cheap instruments when fueled with cheaper drugs.

Chi Lameo - Terms

<a href="http://chilameo.bandcamp.com/album/terms">terms i by Chi Lameo</a>

Bat shit lunacy from Spider Kitten frontman Chi via 2006. This album is dumb. No, I really mean it. What was he trying to achieve exactly? Apparently it's about how he's rarely the full ounce during the month of February. It's not music, it's not even noise. Sounds like he swallowed Gibby Haynes. Maybe he did. Yikes.

Thinking with Sand - last year's clouds

<a href="http://thinkingwithsand.bandcamp.com/album/last-years-clouds">owls; 1928 by Thinking with Sand</a>

E.P #2 from spaced out mongmongers Thinking with Sand. Recorded in Spring 2006, mostly in the lounge of a terraced house late at night. Barely-there melodies are submerged into a sonic puke of cavernous reverb, fuzz-mess and obsolete synth aktion. Bon jovi.

Ogoneddus Anifail - Bolster's Betrayal

<a href="http://anifail.bandcamp.com/album/bolsters-betrayal">Mysteries Of The Forest by Ogoneddus Anifail</a>

Recorded in a cave through a shoe box, this Black Metal mess is an almost unlistenable treat. Marvel at it's complete lack of frequencies whilst you are chilled to the bone by a screeching welshman. Surprisingly well researched folklore makes up the lyrical content, which you won't be able to understand.

Avagddu - The Spoils Of Annwn

<a href="http://avagddu.bandcamp.com/album/the-spoils-of-annwn">The Spoils Of Annwn by Avagddu</a>

Crust tinged Black Metal from the most miserable man in Wales, perhaps the world, the one Morfran Avagddu. Imprisoned in a box made from his own rage at an early age Avagddu now inflicts his brain melting anguish on others via releases like this one.

science bastard - Egg EP

<a href="http://sciencebastard.bandcamp.com/album/egg-ep">The Lizard Will Eat You by Science Bastard</a>

Thundering accross time and space! BEHOLD the burning and weird wreckage of the interstellar-class spaceship SCIENCE BASTARD!!! Emerging like a heavenly trout returned to spawn CATCHY MONGED BUSINESS up the river of your minds.

thinking with sand - Marshfield Street

<a href="http://thinkingwithsand.bandcamp.com/album/marshfield-street">while it lasts by Thinking with Sand</a>

From the archives: first release from fuzzblissed 'gaze duo TWS.
Recorded in Autumn 2005 all manner of splendid sounds go into this synth-driven pop soup; whispered vocals, sequenced drums and guitar feedback. Straddling the line between melodic and harsh TWS are thick and creamy. In a good way.

spider kitten - Burdened ep

<a href="http://spiderkitten.bandcamp.com/album/burdened">Burdened (Roll On) by Spider Kitten</a>

Yet more fuzzed-out and Melodius cuts from the bleak doomsters.
This contains an actual cover of 'the chain' by Fleetwood Mac................!
A tasty ep with a breezy (for want of a more fitting metal term) feel that finds The Kittens in fine voice and groove.

atomck - LIVE 05/08/2008

<a href="http://atomck.bandcamp.com/album/atom-k-live-05-08-2008">invincible phoenix discharge LIVE by Atomçk</a>

Specially recorded just for you! This loving memorial to the tower of sound that is an atomck gig was commited to disc during a show in Newport's Mojo Lounge.
No funny business, just classic after classic- all on this zero disc set!

cemenitmental - ?​?​?​?​?​?​?​?​?​?​?​?​?

<a href="http://cementimental.bandcamp.com/album/-">Moonwashed Driest Amphitheatre Fortunetellers Shredding by Cementimental</a>

aka "Valentine". Originally released as ltd numbered edition of 20 on heart-shaped CDr.

Dr.Age conjours his mighty frequencies once again- this time around things are dripping with a especially frightening paranoid/claustophobic ambience.
Bizzare washes of synthy drone dilute spastic keyboards and reverberated harsh blasts. It'll make you brick it.

spider kitten - FUTURE ECHOS

<a href="http://spiderkitten.bandcamp.com/album/future-echos">The Very Real Consequences Of Thinking Clearly by Spider Kitten</a>

Muscular downer-rock from the Cardiff outsider legends. FE has the meaty sound, rich bassy riffs and doom-laden outlook that SK are known for, but with an added expansiveness and songfull(if not tunefull) quality that the kids will love.

cementimental - We Are Commandments

<a href="http://cementimental.bandcamp.com/album/we-are-commandments">Commandment One by Cementimental</a>

As shrouded in mystery as it isn't in tone, WAC is something of a departure for Cementimnetal, a kind of weird and oddly recorded drone piece.
A very bitter-sounding album, it weighs in at just four monoliths (or should that be QUADroliths) of bass-heavy, sludgey dooom dirge.

atomck - XVI suns

<a href="http://atomck.bandcamp.com/album/xvi-suns">invincible phoenix discharge by Atomçk</a>

Second album proper from the Digi Grinders- betraying more progessive and black metal influences than before.
This was recorded in an actual (well, almost) studio and the songs are somewhat more coherent after Atomck's gigging schedule.

cementimental - Molecular Rampage

<a href="http://cementimental.bandcamp.com/album/molecular-rampage">Lessons From A Saintly Pickler. by Cementimental</a>

No-input mixing noise mess from Dr.Age- BE WARNED!!! LLOOUUDD!!!!! Really punishing set of harsh-as-hell assualts....you can even buy the t-shirt.

atomck - Sneaky Meat

<a href="http://atomck.bandcamp.com/album/sneaky-meat-ep">Sneaky meat by Atomçk</a>

Mix-disk of live atomçk recordings released on a green-sprayed biz card CDR and given away at 'Heavy Doom Fest'.
The first of an ongoing series of noise/drone experiments that extend and distort the Atomck song 'Sneaky Meats'- at this point unreleased- this was recorded at Atomck's rehearsal space and remixed into it's presented from by Linus.

cementimental - He's the Candle Man, Who Can Easily Control the Beeswax in his Body

<a href="http://cementimental.bandcamp.com/album/hes-the-candle-man-who-can-easily-control-the-beeswax-in-his-body">A Gangplank Tongue by Cementimental</a>

Solo noise album by Dr. Age. One of his first genre 'noise' releases. 10 tracks of distorted, rumbling, cruchy analogue noisescapes. Recorded using borrowed 4-track, circuit-bent devices, field recordings (from Port Eynon, Wales,) delay, distortion, feedback, more distortion.

atomck - Teratoma Party Hour

<a href="http://atomck.bandcamp.com/album/terratoma-party-hour-ep">Atom Kong by Atomçk</a>

Hardly-there EP featuring sexy chunks of spazzy grind, with more of a 'live' feel to the material than TMiGE. As of 2009 Atomck still play some of this material at gigs- not that it means it's any good. Recorded in similarly lo-fi conditions.

snorkmaiden - Cake Artistry Centre

<a href="http://snorkmaiden.bandcamp.com/album/cake-artistry-centre">we're ready to believe... you by snork maiden</a>

Recorded between 2003 and 2005 this finally saw the light of day only very recently.
Sonically speaking it's a broad pallette of of-kilter mongedness.

cementimental - Sad Child No Face

<a href="http://cementimental.bandcamp.com/album/sad-child-no-face">Leaping Death Energy by Cementimental</a>

Legendary sloppy bunk jams from 2003- SC/NF is a highly volatile mix of whatever Dr.Age and cohorts could be coaxed to record! Tracks from this release have been played on BBC radio, to hilarious effect.

atomck - The Mote in God's Eye

<a href="http://atomck.bandcamp.com/album/the-mote-in-gods-eye-lp">Reaction command area by Atomçk</a>

Debut album from Digital Grind band Atomck.
Recorded largely in bedroom and front rooms, directly into the back of various computers.
