Topic: Endless Grinning Skulls

Nottingham based hardcore punk. We have a blog with a link to soundcloud where you can stream 3 tracks off our LP. The LP will be off to the plant next week and will be the first release on Viral Age records. First press will be 300. Heavy weight black vinyl in a CRASS style poster sleeve. I will update the blog soon with ordering info.

Re: Endless Grinning Skulls

I got the LP from you yesterday Andy. This is one seriously great LP. A brilliant mix of Rudimentary Peni, Discharge, Scando 80's thrash. An lp that I will play again and again. It was so good listening to it yesterday evening as I didn't know what to expect from the next song when one finished. Thumbs up guys.

Re: Endless Grinning Skulls

Couple of reviews.

'Blistering thrash in the tradition of the '80s greats, from a crew of UK folks who know full well how this shit needs to be done. ENDLESS GRINNING SKULLS take their cues from political UK crossover and raging Japanese hardcore and obviously are well versed in how to go about harnessing those influences. No need to go into deeper layers of bullshit words as these riffs speak for themselves, and this fury cannot be described by a cluster of letters and pointless punctuation-this is flwaless hardcore delivered with point and precision. Get this.'
Robert Collins, MRR

'A new band featuring members of Geriatric Unit, but with a sound that although just as fast has more of a Discharge influence. That’s not to say this band are just another D-Beat band, because they certainly aren’t, and although there is a Discharge feel to this album, there is a lot more to EGS than that, and definitely more depth to these songs. Not only that, but in amongst all the super fast brutal punk rock there is even some melody. Lyrically they savage politicians, the conditions the poor are left to live in, war and other delights of our modern world. It’s an in your face, blistering assault that comes in a quality Crass style fold out, black and white poster sleeve; the whole thing is well thought through and superbly executed.'
Tony, Suspect Device

I'm down to about 60/70 copies of the LP but there are copies in various distros.

UK: LVEUM, Dire, Zandor, Force Fed, Headwrecker, Active Rebellion, Feast of Tentacles, Upside Down Noise

Germany: Punkdistro, Hardware

Czech: Gasmask

US: Six Weeks, Velted Regnub

Japan: Punk&Destroy, Record Shop Base, Nat

Re: Endless Grinning Skulls

Your record was in a top ten list on MRR this month too, incase you didn't know.
