Over at The Quietus site, there’s an interview with the man behind CrumDunt….no, let’s start that again, DrumCunt. Real name, Rhys, he also is drummer for Hey Colossus!, which my man Manjeev released on his 3″ CD label in 2009. You know it ain’t gonna be like Abba, yeah, like putting your moist tongue on frayed electric cables, clears you out, gives a fresh perspective on things that need it. A-fucking-brasive to ras’. Anybody that produces music such as his with such a title has to be checked. Anybody that releases a cd under the title ‘I Shot Westwood’ needs to be checked, and praised. There is a time for everything, and for Drumcunt, the time is now.
Interview with the Pops DC and more of his tuneage over here,
Update, since I originally wrote this a couple weeks ago, there’s a fresh remix of a How To Dress Well product, available for your mits here.
Update2: Manjeev got in touch and has provided some betta links, Thank you sire.
I saw a 7″ on the Broklyn Beats label several years ago, with the name 1 Speed Bike, I think it was Manjeev that put it in front of my eyes, yeah, it was Manjeev when he was dealing over the counter at Rough Trade Portobello Road. “This is by the drummer for Godspeed You! Black Emperor, it’s fucked up, noisy, glitchy..”
Caught up with 1 Speed through a bounce over to Maga Bo’s site yesterday.
1 Speed Man (aka Aiden Girt) has an album reflecting Canada’s involvement in Afghanistan.
What is this war? They claim it’s to liberate woman and to fight drugs and terrorism but woman are worse off then under the Taliban and opium is triple and you can’t win a fight against a tactic. Anyways Osama Bin Laden used to work for them, like Manuel Noriega and Saddam Hussein, who will be next? Maybe its just to punish Afghanistan for being a mess because its been fucked over by other countries? So lets fuck them over too? People do fucked up things in Afghanistan, they hate woman and aren’t tolerant of other religions. We hate woman and anyone who isn’t christian so let’s bomb ourselves? Why do we only hear about Canadian soldiers dying? Why doesn’t the CBC report on how many Afghanis we kill every day? Do we ever kill any? Are we not very good soldiers? Does killing people get in the way of trying to save them? We don’t give a fuck about Afghanistan or Somalia or Haiti or Yemen or Ethiopia or Colombia or any Native Reserve in this country, of course not, no one in charge of this country cares about anything except making money and keeping power. And most people not in charge don’t care about anything beyond getting laid, making money, buying stupid shit they don’t need and pulling weird power trips on those closest to them. So fuck you too. Oh by the way, fuck your yellow ribbons, it’s a volunteer army, you take your chances, those bumper stickers are just a distraction. But what the fuck is wrong with us? Why do we let this go unopposed? Why aren’t we out there in the small town high schools talking to kids, the ones that the Canadian Army is out there recruiting? Why aren’t we out on the streets and malls about this?

My man Manjeev pointed me in the direction of a remix of Nautilus by The Gilded Palace of Sin.
Another reason The Gilded Palace of Sin have to be checked out is because they are linked to Barry Adamson via his label Central Control.
The images and audio match purrfectly.
My man Manjeev who I met at Rough Trade record shop many moons ago has a label, Bunkland, issuing 3″cds. The postman delivered one today. This band/person could have called the outfit Fucked Up, but it’s called Drumcunt. The EP is entitled Fags. This ain’t for pussies, it’s rough, abrasive, twisted, coarse, got a sense of humour, got a bass that will make you thoroughly shit yourself during it’s twenty-four minutes lifespan. The initial run of 65 cd’s is now sold out. Check in with Bunkland or Drumcunt for future recordings/gigs etc.
