14 Inch Crust


I got a great response recently when I asked for requests for future posts. Thanks a ton to the cyber-homies who put in their bids-- your choices are coming up! Main man, Billy, of the mighty 7 Inch Crust blog mentioned Wormwood and Daymare, and excellent choices they are! The only OOP disk I have by Wormwood is the "Reversal Of Fortune" 7", so here it is! These two tracks represent the band's final recorded output and if you already love the band, you won't be disappointed. For the uninitiated, Wormwood played a fairly unique concoction of creepy-ass, blackened, guitarless, doom, embellished with keyboards (but tastefully; seriously). Everything they did was great; no exception here. Only 300 of these were pressed, but you can still find copies in such fine establishments as this and this. Pick one up if you can, because the layout is amazing!


Repo(st) Time:

Daymare is another case of a band that died tragically young, with so much going for it. They are so my kind of hardcore, it's just ridiculous-- gloomy, both fast and slow, heavy, passionate, crusty, intelligent. Sadly, I think these five tracks are the only proof they existed, but if you know of any other releases, you've got to let me know! I posted this 7" way back in the beginning, so the 320 treatment is long overdue; file this in the same category as Ballast, Schifosi, Protess...

Awesome - I've had the Wormwood 7" since last year, but haven't been able to play it due to a broken turntable. Thanks much for posting it - maybe the archive is corupt? I can't seem to get it all to extract.
Anyways, thanks much!

Only one of the tracks showed up when i extracted the file. Regardless, this is cool. i didn't even know this existed!

Hey Chris. Yeah these guys are great. If someone described them to me I'd be a bit skeptical; but they pull off this style so fucking well!

I totally agree about the Wormood 7". Really unique, nice use of samples, keyboards that don't sound stupid and wimpy... Thanks.

This 7" is the only thing Daymare ever recorded before breaking up.
