Earth are an experimental drone/doom band from Seattle, Washington. I’d never even heard of them till a couple of months ago when my brother said I should give Earth 2 a listen... All I can say is that it’s like doing acid without any of the messy business of actually taking drugs. This isn’t music for playing at dinner parties or a friend’s wedding, think headphones, darkness, strangeness and otherworldly experiences. Highly recommended.

Earth have been around since 1990 and are led by guitarist Dylan Carlson. They are pioneers of Drone Doom (I know, I’d never heard of it before) – which, apparently, is an experimental offshoot of doom metal, characterized by droning, minimalistic, lengthy, and repetitive structures. Earth 2 appears to be the most challenging album as their style does appear to vary from album to album with some of the tracks from the latest CD sounding almost like Pink Floyd in places.

Th' Inbred

Here’s a band that never seemed to get the recognition they deserved, musically proficient with a sneering kind of Dead Kennedys feel to them. Coming from West Virginia in the US, Th’Inbred’s two albums & one EP consist of topical songs and instrumentals played in a disciplined form of sharply thrashed hardcore punk-jazz-rock which can turn tight melodic corners on a screeching dime and make abrupt rhythm shifts amid a hailstorm of free-fire guitar power. Very much in a Minutemen/Blind Idiot God vein the sharp-witted anarchists angrily attack Christianity, Satanism, hardcore ideologues, apathy, American policy, etc. and back it up with crisply organized noise. Unfortunately they folded at the end of 1987, just prior to the release of Kissin’ Cousins but the drummer (one of the best drummers I’ve ever heard btw.) Billy Atwell continued on making music and has worked with the likes of the Rhythm Pigs, John Zorn & The Kronos Quartet as well as producing film and theatre scores.

You can read an interview with the band (taken from Artcore #7) here.

* Reproduction EP (Frozen Sound Studio, 1985)
* A Family Affair LP (Toxic Shock, 1986)
* Kissin’ Cousins LP (Toxic Shock, 1988)

Here’s a collection of tracks from each release (320kbps mp3). Ive also included the lyrics for the album tracks.

Scene Death/eMpTyV/U $ Of A

Exercise #1/Fools Paradise/Positive Song/Jesus Youth/Satan Youth

In The Woods/Baby Let’s Play Exile/Pisstest/Eleven Four


Note: I can’t find anywhere to buy the albums so if you want me to post up an entire album just leave me a comment and I’ll upload it.
