A bit of self-promotion…

January 27, 2010

Can’t be bothered with a proper update, so just a self-congratulating quickie.

Cover by Sean Fitzpatrick.

Yes, there's a Medvedev somehwere.

One, yours truly has been interviewed by Danny O’Rawe in his zine Back2Front #5 which can be ordered at back2fron (a//e) I mostly mumble about politics and punk rock. It’s a great read although I haven’t yet finished reading it (gives you an idea of how bloody huge it is).

Also, a song by SVINOKOP (“Nikakogo Pozitiva,” a.k.a. “Only Hatred,” if you care to know) was used in a fairly random YouTube video documenting a protest in East Jerusalem.

If you google hard enough and will be able to stand some atrocious playing and immense amounts of blabbering about fascism in Russian you can see a live video of the same song which we played at the first gig with our new drummer. It’s quite raw but we intend to jam some more and put it out as a single. I kid you not.
