Swans - Love Will Tear Us Apart EP


This acoustic cover ep of the legendary post punk band Joy Division's song by an equally legendary post punk band Swans. There are two different versions of this ep: a red version which has Gira doing vocals on the cover track, and a black version which features Jarboe(I bet you can't guess which one this is.) Released back in the year 1988, this is merely another gem in the jewel encrusted bracelet that is the Swans discography. Could that have been a gayer comparison? Yes, yes it could have.

Buzzov*en - Hate Box EP


With members going on to play in bands like Weedeater, Bongzilla, and Sourvein; you have to wonder what kind of shit they smoke in North Carolina. This is the first "official" release from Buzzov*en, going way back to '91. I was 4...Don't forget about the Wound EP either.

Acid Bath - Hymns of the Needle Freaks


Acid Bath is a legendary sludge band from where else, New Orleans. They were active from '91 to '97, putting out two full lengths, only breaking up due to the death of their bass player, Andie Pitre, in a car crash. Hymns.. was the demo the group put out before their first release, When the Kite String Pops. It is essentially a demo of Kite String as all of the songs from Hymns.. would later be re-recorded(or re-mastered?) for that album.

Spacemen 3 - Taking Drugs to Make Music to Take Drugs To


Spacemen 3 was a British space/post/psych/shoegaze/yougettheidea band active for most of the '80s to the early '90s. This album, released in '90, is more of a compilation album; the first 7 tracks comprise the demo of songs off of their first album, Sound of Confusion, which members Pete Kemeber and Jason Pierce both stated were superior to the actual album recordings, with the remaining seven being alternate versions of the rest of the songs. I would describe them as a more minimalistic Jesus and Mary Chain; now you have to listen to it.
