A new EP and full live band over from Ireland for a special gig. Dead Monkey and Rascal Radio founder. Half of the Vamos brothers dynasty. 


“Wonderful Sound, Strange Shape” (album)
Midlands mega mathcore debut full album on sexy pink vinyl. Bridging the gap between prog-grindcore-punk and pure noise. Distributed by Antipop Records worldwide. In the Antipop catalogue this largely instrumental album sits nicely alongside Boycott the Baptist (grindcore) and Super Fast Girlie Show (biker punk).


Elmo and the Styx - BE FOOL

“Be Fool” (album)
Back with their second album, follow up to ‘Happy’. Their first liver appearance since  Defining their own genre with every new song.
