September 4th is my birthday.

It would have been great if you'd played this in a real state.

As it stands, fuck you.  For now.
My hands are choking, my knife is broken.
An orgasm is what I need.
Your blood is spilling, the sight is thrilling.
To cum I need to see you bleed.

Rodney has uploaded another interview, this time with Brad Wesson of Soundworks Touring who gives a really interesting insight on the goings-on behind big international metal tours.

Two more interviews have gone up on the BASTARDFEST site as we inch closer to the gig!

First we have Nathan and Luke from High Plains Drifter talking about selling out and Nathan's mum which you can listen to here:

And then I got to do something I've wanted to get around to for about 5-6 years, I turned the mic around and interviewed Rodney about his running-of, organising and playing at METAL FOR THE BRAIN.  Easily Australia's most successful metal festival that ran from 1991 to 2006, with lineups that read like the who's-who of Australian metal.  Great to hear about such an important piece of our Aussie metal history, have a listen here:
