Mike was interested in seeing some Wellington posted here; more than happy to oblige! The only reason I hadn't done so already was the possibility that their discography CD may still be in print, so this may be one of those limited-time-only downloads. So who the fludge was Wellington, you ask? Yeah, they were a little overlooked during their time, but not for any good reason. Historically, they were the primordial slurry that would one day ossify into Unruh. But let's get back to the topic at hand: Wellington played scathing sludge metal that could only be produced by the clinically depressed. Their guitar sound had all the subtlety of a rusty, runaway saw blade, the power of which seemed to disguise the fact that they were merely a trio. The longer tracks make good use of space at certain points, allowing the bass to come forward and lull us before the next attack. This tactic does wonders to enhance the power of the heavy parts, but those chilling, quiet junctures really add a compelling demension to the writing. Perfect music to stalk by, but if you're on any kind of medication, I wouldn't recommend listening to it all at once.
As I said, Deep Six supposedly has copies of the Discography left (?) as does Ebullition Records (if you've got 100 ducats to spring for an order). It's totally worth it. The layout is nice, but unfortunately the script is a bit small and I don't have a working scanner. I went ahead and included pics of the LP ("Thank You Jesus") and the split with Noothgrush to compensate. I may have to remove the link soon so...
