Personnel

Notes

Ok... so we have been working on this little number for a few months now and finally it's hit the shop. A while back Fuller from Blood Duster asked if we could help them and the Venomous Concept lads by releasing a 7" for them. Fuller suggested that he wanted the covers to be made of steel! We looked into the possibility but when we suggested that maybe there was some other less complicated to execute type cover that we could persue Fuller's response was "Man if I can't have human skin then is has to be steel"... Our response was "Man why didn't you mention the human skin earlier, as it happens I have just procured..." the rest is history.

Now with the help of our tuff nut butcher mate Nick and many hours carving, bleeding, screaming and laughing we have stretched the torn and tortured scraps of skin around 200 of these dainty little records. Of course human skin not being the easiest of materials to get ahold of we also have 300 of these little buggers in a plain old cardboard printed sleeve too.

On the content passed the bloody sticky flesh, one side contains 3 tracks from Venomous Concept a super band with members of Napalm Death, Melvins and Brutal Truth, the other side is Blood Duster doing punk inspired grind, including a cover of Australian punk legends Depression in the form of "filthy trash".
