Elders - S/T CS; Meatsmoke - Meatsludge


Daniel, occasional Girth Crisis contributor and a good friend of mine, plays drums in Elders, who play, to simplify matters, Black Flag-influenced negative hardcore (and are based in Phoenix, Arizona) and feature members of Pigeon Religion, Slut Sister, Streetside Prophet, and every other band in that scene. Friendships aside, I think they're really good, and apparently I'm not alone, since if they ever record an LP, it'll be released by King of the Monsters, who released the Locust/MITB split back in '95 and haven't done anything in a while. Anyway, this is the rip of their second demo with tracks split up by yours truly. I didn't get a copy of the tape because they sold out very quickly, but then again, neither did Daniel. Oh well.


Meatsmoke - Meatsludge

Meatsmoke is a band I started early this semester to have fun playing loud. The five of us have practiced together a grand total of twice, we have played about six shows, and, true to form, the five of us were never in the same place while we were recording this demo. However, I don't think that kept it from turning out pretty well. I know this is a plug and everything, but yeah, I'd put us in the "sludge metal" and "noise rock" categories. The picture is of 3/5 of Meatsmoke doing an Eyehategod cover set because no pictures of us together exist. MYSTERIOUS, huh?
