Human Power- Human Power? 7"ep repress

Bene Von Bastard and myself did this project a few years ago, just us having some fun with some home recording equipment and our fetishism of Japanese Hardcore (the music not the pornography). I made an ep and pressed 200 odd copies, didn't really know what to do with them but managed to sell them over a couple of months with a lot of help from Bene. Pretty much forgot about the project until Krough from Blindead Productions asked about a re-press. Bene was up for the idea so I sat down and listened to the ep and thought "why not". Here it is, spanking new cover, new plates made (slightly bass heavy compared to the original) and a much larger pressing of 500 copies, there were also some special editions made with an extra cover which you can order from Blindead. I have a few copies of the regular edition for sale for £5 postpaid (UK only) and will also do wholesale if any UK distributors/shops want copies.
Here is an audio/video clip of Disgust.
If you live outside the UK then you can order a copy from your local shop/distributor or direct from Blindead Productions. http://blindeadproductions.com/
MRR gave it a particularly good review.

Upcoming Gigs.

We have some gigs lined up for June 2012, lucky us are playing with two of the best Punk bands in the UK. On Saturday 2nd of June we will play at the 1in12 Club in Bradford with FUK.
The following week (Saturday 9th) we will play at the Sumac Centre in Nottingham with Oi Polloi.

Very little else lined up for the rest of the year apart from two gigs with Lotus Fucker in November (Nottingham and London on 2nd and 3rd) and later that month we will do our 2nd US tour. Hopefully sometime our new album “Knock one out” will be released, though don’t hold your breath as we still don’t have any artwork.

Update Feb 2012

I’ve got a few bits and bobs of news.

First off here are some reviews of noise punk 002 and 003 from Maximum Rock’n’Roll, both are still available from either myself or various distros/record shops around the world. Check out MRR. Odd that they are giving us good reviews these days, I imagine that is a result of not giving our stuff to Emo's to review.
Today I got the test pressing of Noise Punk 004 Damaging Noise ep, after overcoming some problems with cutting the vinyl I’m pleased to say that in my opinion it sounds good, hopefully the band will be happy and we can forge ahead with the release.
Noise Punk 005 is The Wankys- Poundland 7” which will be sent to the pressing plant tomorrow, following on from that will be The Wankys new album on both vinyl and compact disc which we finished mastering today. The artwork needs to be completed so don’t expect a release anytime soon.

The Wankys and Giftgasattack gig in Birmingham isn’t a goer so I’m looking into other options at the moment, possibly Discharge land as opposed to GBH land. Not sure what’s happeneing about the Leeds gig but London and Sheffield gigs are all sorted.

2012

Okay so here we are in 2012 and I already have some concrete plans for January. This week will see Noise Punk 004 off to the pressing plant, it will be the long worked on Damaging Noise- The Very Best of the Bery Best of Damaging Noise 7” ep. This lot are a pretty obscure band from Japan who as far as I’m aware only made 3 tapes. (if anyone has copies of their 1st and 3rd demo then please let me know, I want to hear them) The story of how this ep came about is when I was at Asuza’s house in Tokyo and nosing through his cassettes, I picked this tape out and asked him about the band. He simply said “for you”, thanks mate. Connor Dobson helped me track a member of the band down via youtube. My friend Beryl did the mastering, she's been responsible for mastering a lot of the recent Discharge/Anti System/Antisect re-issues. It took some time to come up with a satisfactory master of the cassette that the band was happy with, however we are now at the stage where it’s ready to be pressed. In the meantime some kind soul spread the cassette over the internet via a blog download and youtube, though it’s worth pointing out that their mastering is significantly different to the one that will be used for the ep. Please don’t expect anything other than low-fi noise punk, something akin to the Gai demos in my opinion.

It’s now 5 years of the Wankys! We are also off to the studio in a couple of weeks to record our next album. It’s been 2 years since we have been in a studio and I was less than satisfied with our very poor effort last time we were in one (split ep with Lotus Fucker and an aborted ep for Rescued from Life). So here’s hoping we get a good sound on a very limited budget. If the recording turns out good the Compact Disc will be issued in Japan on Hardcore Kitchen, we have yet to decide who will issue the vinyl version. I’m enjoying the challenge of playing the new songs and if the recording is right the new album will be something special. Watch this space.

Gigs. It’s getting increasingly difficult to arrange stuff due to Monkeyspanker being busy with other stuff, so sorry to all the people that offer us gigs/tours. However we do have one gig lined up in Sheffield on 16th March with Giftgasattack, Doom, Endless Grinning Skulls and Cry Havoc. I will also be arranging the Giftgasattack England tour for a round the same time, more details to follow.

Thanks to all that supported us in 2011 and we wish you the best for 2012.
