RIDICULOUS RELEASES: RAINBOW GRAVE "NO YOU"
A few years ago I heard Matt Baty from Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs play a band called Rainbow Grave on his radio show and I thought they were fucking excellent. I later found out this rather heavy act from Birmingham features Nicholas Bullen (founding member of Napalm Death and Scorn) and John Pickering (founding member of Doom and Sore Throat) and assumed they would gain the reputation of being one of the most exciting bands on the scene in no time.
However, everything seemed to slow right down. The live appearances seemed few and far between severely limited stuff to listen to as well. I thought it was all but over but things seemed to pick back up again with a split release with Orthodox as part the legendary Singles Club series by God Unknown (a label founded by Jason Stoll of Mugstar, Sex Swing, Bonnacons of Doom etc), a single called “Sex Threat” towards the end of last year and then an announcement of a full length entitled “No You” coming out on July 5th.
They are also playing the Desertfest opening party on May 2nd at the Black Heart alongside Cosmic Carnage legends Ghold and I believe a proper run of gigs has been lined up before the end of the year. I also very recently found out that they share drummers with Vile Sect who rocked Cardiff for us last week, he hits those things fucking hard.
So what do they sound like? The first track on the album is called ‘Ten Million Tons of Shit’ which is a better description than anything I could write. If you imagine Drunk in Hell collaborating with The Melvins after a night on the speed, then you can’t go too far wrong.
Pre-order it you fuckers.
