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!

ESPM/SHITGRINDING

Flyer by Maz Benjamas

SHITGRINDER are Brisbaneโ€™s leanest and meanest killing machine, straight up no frills grinding fury with their own distinct sound. They just put out a shit-hot LP and are firing on all cylinders.ย 
Helping light the fuse are:
BLOODRULE – finally coming out of a 3 year hiding to belt out some of the hardest death-metallized PV mosh this side of Boston Tea Stop.
EXECUTION – Melbourneโ€™s most manic hardcore punk right now, a heart attack delivered via obsession with Italyโ€™s unique brand of punk berserkerism.ย 
DIPLOID – who just get uglier and more intense with each show. A dark as hell, heavy as shit off-kilter noise/punk/grind/doom cacophony/rapture.ย 
ESP MAYHEM – An evil klown synth-grind headache of combative blast and confused stabs at undanceable disco peanuttery.

Saturday September 8th at the Last Chance Rock Nโ€™ Roll Bar where the revelry or misery need never end. Get there at 8, stay til humiliation drives you back to your stinky hovel!
