BL027: BIG MACHINE - SELF-TITLED (7")
Debut release from the Manchester-based duo, both former members of the excellent dark crusty hardcore outfit, Hammers.
Seven short blasts of fast/slow sludgey hardcore with plenty of shouting; if you're familiar with Hammers then you could be forgiven for expecting more of the same, however whilst they maintain the ferocity and urgency of their previous band, the pair manage to create something that sounds quite different but just as brilliant.
The entire EP was pretty much written in one session, then recorded with Joe Clayton of Nø Studio. No messing around here!
