Becoming a dad for the second time must have triggered some kind of punk-regression, because what little time I have between naps and nappies is being spent on a blog called CUT & PASTE. There are hundreds of punk, hardcore, thrashcore, fastcore and powerviolence bands on there, all with downloads.
In keeping with the name of the blog, here are some of my favourites so far:
Man Hands Split Cassette (2011)
(Human Junk Tracks Only)
"If you haven't heard of this band yet you are an idiot. Period. Vaccine is yet another Western Mass powerhouse featuring The Legendary Will Killingsworth, Matt Swift from Relics and The Living City, Joe Shumsky from Think I Care and Glue, and our friend Matt McKeown who spilled his guts with No Faith. In a nut shell this band tears shit up. Super pumped up and vicious straight edge power violence. This shit kills!"
Vaccine / No Faith Split 7" (2013)
