useless trinkets and baubles

shit that we'll have on tour with us:

Shirt by Szymon

Coloniser - Macaulayism. Four song tape.

The first noise release i haven't sacrificed to Column of Heaven in a few years now. Though it did start life as a potential CoH recording.

Slow Light - Demo tape 2013.

Eric explores what crasher d beat bands sound like in his cracked brain. All drums and vocals. All noise made by some stupid drum sleight of mind.

Influences: Gloom, Cherry Point, D-Clone, The Rita, weird IPAs, SCIENCE!

Godstopper volume one. It's a zine/ comic. God knows what Mike has come up with.

Chromium Dioxide issue 5.

Ride at Dawn - Blast Cage. New tape/ LP. 18 minutes of fuck off. New line up, best material yet.

A new Abyss tape in some form or another.

Absolut - Demo tape 2013.

Three of Slaughter Strike are in Column of Heaven. The other main guy from Slaughter Strike that isn't in CoH is Joel, this is his band. Ex Midnight, Left for Dead, and whatever else Joel has done.

Possibly my favourite new band. Better than the last fake Burning Spirits/ Raw Noise Anime Hiking Furry Punk 4 Life bullshit you were recommended by someone from New York on the VLV board.

Bring barely drinkable IPAs that we are unable to buy in the puritanical province of Ontario for us to sample in the parking lot under cover of darkness.

Next three Survivalist releases


Ride at Dawn as yet untitled new tape, their best yet, my opinion is not to be trusted though.

Coloniser - Macaulayism C20. Screech thud yell. 70% finished at time of writing, out in March unless i get hit with a massive dose of self criticism again. I have been failing to get this project off the ground for about two years now.


Grief Tourist zine. Alas this won't be ready in time for the shows we're playing in the US. No music talk. Limited copies, of limited interest. Self indulgence at its most crass. An elaborate and totally base level sigil written in zine format.

As ever, all of this will only available at shows, left over copies will eventually go to Analog Worship, Scream/ Writhe, and Crucial Blast after the usual protracted procrastination on my behalf.


To answer the inevitable, why won't you let me send you money for a shirt question, badskulls will be making them available to you shortly.
