Latest release from Hairy Palm featuring bands from across the country. Including: Mutation, Piggery, Dogcock, Stress Ghetto, Pvnisher, Spiteful Urinator, Bowel Rupture, Zhukov, Total Ruin, Noxo, and TV Blue.

'An obsessive attempt at documenting the musical output of punks up and down the country with tracks from late 2018 to early 2019, the third installment in a disgusting trilogy. Packed with roughly half an hour of the most abrasive punk and noise acts I could wrangle together from Aotearoa's flourishing (rotting?) underground.'

Very special release by Wellington's Tvx in memory of their vocalist and beloved friend of ours Anna, who sadly passed away last year. Produced using live vocals from one of their last gigs. She would have been so bloody chuffed if she heard this. Records are still available that you can buy through bandcamp.


RIP Anna <3 <3 <3
