Shane Embury’s Record Box
Here’s a great video with Lock Up that I posted a few months ago. I still watch this every few days. Its really fun to me:
Anyway, I’ll let the page description speak for itself about what this link is:
In the fourth of our series of Record Boxes commissioned by The Space, Shane Embury from Napalm Death explains how grindcore came into being, exploring the elements of its genetic make up with records from John’s own collection.
He mentions a lot of cool bands in his trip down memory lane, and I found one that I wasn’t familiar with: Slab!. As a big fan of Justin Broadrick and Godflesh, I found myself really digging their sound. They seem like the prototype for Head of David, Fall of Because and for Godflesh.
The page also includes details about the bands and albums that Shane speaks about in his talk. I love it. 😉
