We just found a box with some extra copies of the bonus CD that was included in the "Thrash culture as bora" LP+CD set so we're putting them on sale at lower price. CD in a simple carboard promo-style sleeve.
First chapter in FOAD's annihilating mission to re-issue all the early 7MON material enriched by an incredible amount of rare and unreleased recordings. This CD includes the band's first 2 EPs "Our culture is boring" and "Thrashbora" - the complete sessions with a lot of never heard before outtakes added, freshly ripped from Mick's master tapes. "The story behind this record begun when Matthias Weigand delivered us a huge box of 7MON reels to transfer in the studio, to check exactly what was included in each one of them. We found out that most of them were the masters of the early Eps released by TNT &Records and then Ecocentric Records. When we started to discuss about a possible series of 7MON releases on LP to re-build the band's discography from the early times, Mick came out with the fact that he had recently unearthed the complete sessions of each EP, that were much longer than how they were originally released on 7". So we opted to start with a set including these extended "Our culture is boring" and "Thrashbora" sessions ripped from Mick's tapes. Anyway, since the sound on the reels from which the Eps were produced is somehow more "in the face" and sharper on the high frequencies we decided to add a bonus CD showing you both versions: the complete (longer) session ripped from Mick's cassettes and the EP edit transferred from the reels." Started in 1985 in Australia by Scut and Mick Hollows and mutated through different incarnations revolving around Mick's figure, 7MON still smashes eardrums nowadays. Their first EP "Our culture is boring" was released in 1988 and immediately tore down all the walls of music conception. 351 songs, melted into a blurr-fest of drums, bass and shouts. An endless stream of blasts, grunts, feedbacks and to the point political lyrics, pushing forward the boundaries of the then newborn loud cousin of Grindcore, Noisecore. In 1989 Mick and Scut delivered their second effort (recorded in fall 1988), this time on flexi disc. "Thrashbora" follows the steps of its predecessor, sounding even noisier and fiercer. These two legendary EP's shaped a whole genre and countless bands spawned from the "musical" extremism concepted by two Australian guys in the 80's. If there's a heaven of Noise, Seven Minutes Of Nausea is surely deserving a place at the top of it.
