Great review. Vanadiums guitarist & chief instrument writer Brad was a mate of mine & my first guitar teacher. He was a few years younger than me, so when you do a count back it is amazing how good he was for a teenager to be writing that stuff. Especially back then.

Yo Jezz, Im always in the shadows haha! Cant sum up short what Ive been doing but...yeah did a stint in Pyromesh (left in 2005) to try something different but didnt work out. Dethlahem was good (left in late 2007) but so much was going on with me travelling back and forward to Bali that could not commit the time. Well, married now to my Balinese goddess, already had a daughter with her from before, and we have a son who just turned 2 so 4 children now so no time really for the band thing now, but always up for a jam. Back in Perth just now and will stay for a while.

Not selling at Bibra Lake now, but doing tribal ear jewellery, and all other jewellery just free lance as a hobbie, and organise orders for people/businesses who interested.

Yes in North Bali alot as I have a place there, scenic paradise where I can crank the tunes and knock back a few bintangs, amazing stuff but back here for now as going to get the kids some western education. My two oldest children are 14 and 12 so always a busy time with the 4 kids every second weekend. Will get to a show in the near future.

Metal on...
Coconuts and Bintangs...

so being as Rob is a guitar veteran I will assume he is simply making a deliberate and concerted effort to kill me.  

but to me it is a little like comparing torture devices and deciding which one you wish to be tortured by.  

I love your writing style. If this album messed so much with your head, I'm really looking forward to getting hold of it!

SFD were awesome.

I used to train with one of those guys. He was living with Tony Campo of Allegiance @ the time.

And to my surprise I see that guest vocals have been done by none other than Rowland, who knew he could sing?

The clean vocals on the EP were by the producer, Dan Holmes, not me. I did record some cleans, but they were cut from the final mixdown. My backing vocals were all growls, and sounded very similar to Todd.

If you recently went and saw the Metallica tribute band, Blackened, the left handed bass player was Daryl



Really? There is so much of the metal scene I missed out on in the 90's. Never really know about the gigs until I read about them in the xpress the following week.

So what kind of Metal classification would You give to CuntScrape?

I would say Thush Metal.

Just got the Caddis CD in the mail.... thanks heaps Jez. I really like it. I can definitely hear the Korn influence, but I reckon the guitarist is a Pungent Stench fan, especially the first track. Real groovy, heavy and downtuned - sounds awesome!!! not really what you would expect from their era... they were way ahead of their time

I only saw them live once, and I don't know if any of the gigs I ever did was with SFD.  I would have been in Faces of Death in those days I think, but we were doing a lot of acid in the scene then and it all just blurs.

ah yes thems were's the days.
We wouldve done a fair few gigs on the same bill? but yer right, its fuzzy for sure.

yep  :err: .

My first gig was in 1988 at the Old Melbourne.

I think there was ORPHEUS (all thrash covers) and maybe OUTRAGE and BOTTICELLI'S ANGEL (John Moriaty!).

Nearly everyone in the place was headbanging (that's when your head goes up and down not round and round)
