Fighting Music

Two OG powerviolence-related records for today.  First up is the Baser Apes 7" by Rupture, released by Slap A Ham in 1993.  I believe this band was based out of Australia.  Maybe SEAN can help with that?  Not one of my favorite bands of this style, but this is a very solid 7".  I think there was also a green pressing of this record.

Next is the Rorschach/Neanderthal split.  This split was put out by Veriform Records and originally came with issue #38 of a zine called Dear Jesus.  Unfortunately I don't have the zine.  This is the first time I've ever given Rorschach a solid listen and I'm liking what I hear.  I've got to say that Neanderthal is the better side though, and I'd take Neanderthal's side of this split over the aforementioned Rupture 7" as well.

  1. Rupture were one of the original kind of PV influenced bands out of Perth in the early 90's. Went through various and numerous members and influences as time went by. Wouldn't say that I am crazy about them as a band, but they certainly influenced a lot of bands that I like these days.
