EXECUTION – Italio Oi!

We acknowledge that this event is taking place on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations. We pay respect to their Elders past, present and future. Sovereignty never ceded.

This will probably be the last ESP MAYHEM Melbourne show for a while cause Christoph’s moving to Brisbane soon so come on down! I think we’ll have CD’s and maybe shirts for sale as well…

Cheers to PBS FM noise-slingers!

Big thanks to Father Midnight and Paul Kidney for recently playing SPASMOSLOP and all sorts of other noisemusic flavours (including plenty of locals!) on their radio shows on PBS 106.7FM in the early hours of the morning. Paul even plays SUPER FUN HAPPY SLIDE and other grindcore stuffs too sometimes, what a legend!
You can stream past shows on their sites, chockers with interesting sounds… check ’em out!!

Massive cheers to everyone local and interstate who has helped get this tour together! Great line-ups, I wish I could be there for the interstate gigs!
Seeing Kiyasu play solo was a highlight of my Japan trip last year for sure. He’s one of the most dedicated grind/noisemakers I’ve ever met, and this tour is entirely self-funded, so go give him the support he deserves!
