GOOD TIME AUSSIE BOGALANS: A Slab of Liquid Cunt: LP

The name of this record is A Slab of Liquid Cunt. I’m sure the band is really proud of that. What you get here is a bunch of better-than-average Slap-A-Ham rehash hardcore. They use the “cunt” in just about every song. Edgy, I guess. There are some cool parts, like the groove in “Dedicated Rooter” that pulls you away from the thrashing for a minute, which makes the run back into the grind a little jarring in a good way. They have some pretty okay Eyehategod-style breakdowns and some weird time signatures in some slow parts, but, for the most part, this is just some guys trying to be Seth Putnam. Anyway, if you’re into the goofy side of the grind scene, I guess it’s okay. –Ian Wise (Blak Skull, blakskull.bigcartel.com)
