                                                 Mind's Eye - "Cut Snake Poetry"
                                                                   1999


On the whole, I thought this album was pretty good, but I think that a second CD by Mind's Eye would have been much

PS: What DID happen to these guys?

I'm pretty sure there was a second recording, albeit unreleased. I worked on the artwork for Cut Snake, the front cover was a drawing by Rhys from Intensely Mellow that was on top of a wooden toolbox. From memory Matt, the drummer from Minds Eye, and myself hand traced it then scanned it and colour it by hand. Good times.

I've been trying to get in touch with Matt, if and when I do i'll confirm that second recording and find out what happened to it, and them.

Awesome Minds Eye review!  It definitely has to be heard to be appreciated. 

They were at the mixing stage of their second album when everything fell apart and it never got released, which is a total spew!

The vocalist went to jail for being too punk, lead guitarist is still playing somewhere around but mostly acoustic (I think) and the drummer went on to play in Choke (I think?) and Hypercenter.

Definitely up there with my favourite local albums/bands.

And the Scourge review is so tasty!

Glad you approve.  But how does one go to jail for being too punk?


Aaah Hypercentre.  THAT would be a tough review to do.



dude, do it.  ;D i got a copy of Split Lip Shit.

oh by the way, i was reading through from the start and realised i missed a few reviews, thanks for the review of the Noctis EP - regardless of any ensuing arguments. though i may not play with them anymore, feedback is always appreciated.

Hypercentre were SOOOOOOOOOO much better before the chick joined. I have nothing against female vocalists, just her vocals.
She sounded like a crazy Kiwi trailor trash mum screaming @ her kids  to  "put your fuckin toys away fuckin little cunts".
Her voice 10% cool 90% irritating.
They should have just left it as Keane & Slade on vocals aye.

at the time... and probably still, as irritating as her voice may be, it proved to be something different and non standard...
keeping in mind the fact that some of the most "respected" vocalists in bands nowadays are actually shittyasfuck singers, if u got a signature "whine" or something, people will love ya... just look at Ozzy..............

go crazy kiwi trailertrash mom!!!!  :rofl:

ill try to get a burnt copy to u, my internet's probably too slow to email a decent amount of their material, plus... i need to retransfer the songs off the iPod, back into the computer, coz the hard drive died and i lost a sheetload of my music.

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

I would say Thush Metal.

Tapes are hell cool, but I have no facility at the moment to convert them to a digital format.

I do. Give them to me first Amy and I'll pass them on to Jez  :P :P

Infected's "Crawlspace" is an important part of the history of Metal in this city and should be in every Perth metal collection.

I managed to find an original copy of this in a local second hand record store a couple of months back, soon after they launched the rereleased version.

I played bass at few Rapeseed gigs. At one of them this badly drunk guy came up to me with a Rapeseed CD and a pen asking me for an autograph. I told him I didn't record on it but he was so blind drunk he didn't seem to understand. He wouldn't let it go, so I just signed it anyway.

They did have some decent riffs.

HeadShot sounded like a slightly more mathy Mark Of Cain. They were a good band!

cool shit,
I ended up spending a year or so with Rapeseed myself as a vocalist. ended up falling in a screaming heap, so now ive started up 2ndgraderenegade with the bass player Stu.

Will be looking for a 2nd guitarist once we find one of those endangered animals "The Metal Drummer"

So you would know Zoda then yeah?

I played a couple of gigs with Rapeseed at Taipan Room when I was a kiddlywink.

It was pretty good shit.

I'm gonna join in....  :woot:
I had a Rapeseed logo sticker on my old VCR. Unfortunately it died, and I failed to salvage the sticker before I threw the kaput VCR in the bin.
