Kia Kaha Kids are an Auckland based punk band that formed in 2009, playeing a series of shows that featured GG Allin and Misfits covers and even a sweet drunken cover of Eye Of The Tiger.

This Comp Kills Fascists Vol. 1

This Comp Kills Fascists Vol. 1 was released by Relapse Records in 2008, and was eventually followed by Vol. 1 and Vol. 3. The compilations focuses on Grindcore and Powerviolence, with bands such as Weekend Nachos, Agents of Satan and Spoonful of Vicodin to name a few. My favorite selection of tracks would have to be the Weekend Nachos songs, the Chainsaw to the Face tracks and the Insect Warfare tracks; but with 51 tracks its hard to be picky.
