Grudgefest!’16

Big Day Out. Dead. Warped tour. Dead. Soundwave Festival. Dead. Fuck that shit anyway!

You want a real festival. Am I right? A festival of real bands and real people, that doesn’t cost you a fortune only to be herded into a pen with every undesirable teenage crisis victim of Disturbed, with green hair dye running down their face and vomiting out the beer and drugs they couldn’t handle. We’ve all been there I’m sure, but it gets old quick.

Here’s a festival, that is so cheap it will cost you nothing! It’s GrudgeFest!’16. And if you like grind and punk you’ve got to get down to this!

As part of Melbourne grindcore band Grudge‘s album launch, Cabin Fever has been asked to play on Grudgefest!’16 at the Brunswick Hotel, Brunswick. It’s a stella line up of grind/fastcore/punk with Hailgun headlining the day.

Of coarse theres Grudge and Cabin Fever, but also Disparo from Sydney, before they take off on their world tour! Literally a world tour!

Meth Leppard from Adelaide are on this amazing line up, I haven’t seen these guys yet. I’ve been giving the demo tape a good flogging recently, I really dig it, it includes a cover of Siege of Power, so impossible not to like it really!

Morbid Anal have a great name, I’m assuming grindcore or goregrind style. i haven’t heard them yet, but I ran into members at Yah Yah’s NYE, and I found out that one is the guitarist for Odiousembowel. So they should be cool as.

Also Melbourne Grind Syndicate goovers ChristChrusher. And Drain Life and ROT too. And there it all is it. I bet that’s most impressive lineup of fast music you’re going to see for a while!

You can see all this, for free, Saturday 20th February at the Brunswick Hotel, crn Sydney Rd and Barkley St Brunswick. See you in the pit!

NEW SONG – Disgusting Society

In Australia we have ended up with an extreme neoliberal fundamentalist right wing government, who currently are stripping us of civil liberties in the name of law and order, detaining refugees on off shore detention centres in the name of national security and privatising anything in a flawed belief that the private market (made to profit shareholders and CEO’s) has any compassion for peoples welfare…and speaking of profits, aboriginal communities are being shut down because they are “unviable”. People who have been here 40,000 – 60,000 years or longer are being displaced because our government don’t  care for their welfare!

Indy and friends. Punks marching in against the closure of Aboriginal communities.

A post shared by Paul (@pig_champion_rides_again) on

Today, 1st July 2015 it has become illegal for health care workers to speak out about sexual abuse that happens in detention centres on Manus Island and Naru.

It has become illegal for anyone working in detention centres to make public what goes on in our detention centres. With the possibility of long jail terms of 5 years.

We can’t sit back anymore…we must speak up, that’s why we are giving you a taste from our new record (Do Not Resuscitate) today because all this amounts to what we see as a DISGUSTING SOCIETY.

PUNKS for WEST PAPUA

11188284_10204068814657385_8928218137004161597_n “The people of West Papua have been suffering under Indonesian occupation since 1962. Over 500,000 civilians have been killed, and thousands more have been raped, tortured and imprisoned. Foreign media and human rights groups are banned from operating in West Papua, so people rarely hear about the situation there. The Free West Papua Campaign is bringing the story of West Papua to the world and campaigning for freedom and justice in West Papua, to end the violence of the last 50 years.” For more information please explore Free West Papua Campaign. The struggle for independence is ongoing in West Papua, the Indonesian Military occupy the area and inflict atrocities on the people of West Papua who dare fight for freedom. It’s something we don’t think much about here in Australia but these are some of our closest neighbours, yet their lives are so far removed from yours or  mine. It’s an all too common story of Occupying force and multinational company making the lives of the people who’s land it is a living hell. Since being asked to play this show, I’ve learnt a lot more about the struggle for independence in West Papua and hopefully we can raise some coin and some awareness at this gig to contribute to their ongoing fight. After all whats the good of punk music if it doesn’t raise awareness, help the underdog, challenge the mind and make you think for someone else for a change?
