Haven’t updated here for ages… I haven’t really done any “proper” music/noise during the pandemic but I did get this amazing new noise machine from my friend and humble genius Electrofarts, which I’m calling the FART SWASH. It’s an Electrofarts interpretation of the 4MS Noise Swash and it sounds fuggin siiiiiiick!!!
Girth (USA) offer up a rancid goregrind feast fit only for the morbid(ly obese) with their immense weight supported by Melbourne grindcore smashers Internal Rot, grinding death metal bulldozers Incinerated and hard Jardin’ goregrinders Clogged!
US hyperblasting grindcore heavyweights Sulfuric Cautery are heading down here to lay waste to our east coast and as the final date of their tour, this show is a fucking huge banger covering as much as is possible of Melbourne’s most ruthless!
BRUTAL! Hugest cheers to TERRIBLE MUTILATION for organising this crazy shit!
SULFURIC CAUTERY will also be touring east Aus with CONTAMINATED so check it out if you’re in that direction!

𝗘𝗦𝗣 𝗠𝗮𝘆𝗵𝗲𝗺 Synth core? Electro Grind? The Limewire genre category that was just called “undefinable”? New vocalist, Cher Tan’s (Grimalkin/Spiteward ADL) blood curdling voice and articulate cynicism seem right at home in the ESPM soup, and a SPICY soup it is!
𝗖𝗮𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗶𝗰 𝗚𝗿𝗶𝗽 NIN, and Multiple Man walk into a bar. It’s not a joke, but you can’t remember ever having this much fun before. CG is the dark EBM/Industrial project of Naarm based, non binary artist Scud Viney.
First ESPM gig in ages, and our first gig with Cher on vocals! We’ll be playing a bunch of brand new songs, and they’re more wild than ever. Including future hits like “The One With The Absurdly Long Blast Parts” and “The Slabber” (slam + gabber = slabber)!!
Also – new outrageous Bloodsportswear shirts! If you love copyright infringement, robots, and excessive sleeve prints, you’re in for a treat!

Nerd shit ⚠️ SPEW BALLOON 2020 setup! Bass splits to 2 pedal chains: Bottom is "guitar" – from top right then down.. Blackout Fix'd Fuzz Deluxe for boost/filtering –> red Whammy harmonising a 5th for power chord –> Bass Whammy then shifts it an octave up –> cheapo EQ sucks out low end/string noise –> Tensor harmonises octave up –> Bitquest can add another octave up for "solos" –> Plasma then Geiger Counter for very NICE distortion. Top is "bass" – Frantabit for boost/extra churn –> Fairfield Four Eyes for cutting highs/boosting lows –> Fat Fuzz Factory for noise –> 4ms Noise Swash for more noise! –> Ol' Dirty Bastard glues it all together. Well stoked. It has taken me years to hone this shit! Come hear it tonight at Swamplands! #doublewhammy #makingbasssoundlikeguitar #pedalporn #effectpedals #distortion #fuzz #noise #grindcore #spewrock #chundergrind #towelcore #surfgrind #spewballoon
