Th' Legendary Shack*Shakers
Press Release reports: Following critical accolades from Mojo, Q Magazine and Billboard with their first two albums Cockadoodledon't and Believe, Th' Legendary Shack*Shakers will release their third-full length recording Pandelirium this February, their second LP on Yep Roc Records (home to artists such as Paul Weller, Bob Mould, Marah and The Reverend Horton Heat).

Featuring tracks such as "Ichabod!," "No Such Thing," and "Somethin' in the Water," Pandelirium is a collection of twelve songs that draws from the rustic charm of cotton-field hollers, funeral marches and murder ballads and the unhinged energy of Texas polkas, southern blues, spaghetti western anthems and gritty, punky sound bombs.

Intense Degree Download
Earache reports: Intense Degree - 'War In My Head' Out Of Print MOSH 9 Available To Download Mansfield's finest Superfast Hardcore band of the late 80's shared countless stages with the leading lights of the newly spawned UK grindcore scene, Heresy ,Napalm Death, Doom, Bolt Thrower etc all over the UK in the 86-87 period, and attracted the attention of famed Radio 1 DJ John Peel -who booked the band into the BBC studios for a well received session, first broadcast in March 1988. The band were less metallic sounding than their contemporaries, concentrating instead on super swift HC based material, and in drummer Frank they boasted one of the fastest in the scene. Intense Degree were also notable for having a female bass player, which was unusual for the time, Bolt Thrower aside. 

Earache became good friends with the band and arranged for them to record their debut LP in Birdsong Studios, Worcester in October 88. Studio owner Steve Bird deserves an honourable mention in the history of Grindcore for recording the B-side of Napalm Death's 'Scum' and all of the 'From Enslavement' album- most engineers were perplexed by the unlistenable noise that grindcore bands unleashed in the studio, but Steve was actually encouraging and even made the bands vaguely listenable, all with a zero budget. The resulting album 'War In My head' became the 9th Earache release (mosh 9) and was originally available on vinyl LP only but is now online at metaltracks to download in mp3 format. - Click Here for the Full Story
