Human Error (Gro) @ W.N.C., Groningen 13 August 1989 (First gig)   Leave a comment

After E.N.E. split up, Maynard, Robbie and Piet decided to start a new band with the help of Juul on bass and Janine on vocals. We did our first gig in our squat the W.N.C. on 13.08.89 as HUMAN ERROR. We changed the name from REALITY ATTACK into MUSHROOM ATTACK. After several tours and two split LP’s we decided to split up after our disaster UK tour in June 1992. There were just too many tensions in the band.

Intense Degree (UK) @ W.N.C., Groningen 7 February 1990   Leave a comment

intensedegreeMansfield’s finest Superfast Hardcore band of the late 80’s shared countless stages with the leading lights of the newly spawned UK grindcore scene, Heresy ,Napalm Death, Doom, Bolt Thrower etc all over the UK in the 86-87 period, and attracted the attention of famed Radio 1 DJ John Peel -who booked the band into the BBC studios for a well received session, first broadcast in March 1988. The band were less metallic sounding than their contemporaries, concentrating instead on super swift HC based material, and in drummer Frank they boasted one of the fastest in the scene. Intense Degree were also notable for having a female bass player, which was unusual for the time, Bolt Thrower aside.
Earache became good friends with the band and arranged for them to record their debut LP in Birdsong Studios, Worcester in October 88. Studio owner Steve Bird deserves an honourable mention in the history of Grindcore for recording the B-side of Napalm Death’s “Scum” and all of the ” From Enslavement” album- most engineers were perplexed by the unlistenable noise that grindcore bands unleashed in the studio, but Steve was actually encouraging and even made the bands vaguely listenable, all with a zero budget. The resulting album ” War In My head” became the 9th Earache release (mosh 9) and was available on vinyl LP only.
2 tracks also appeared on the Manic Ears records compilation “North Atlantic Noise Attack”, including the bands cover of the Siege classic “Conform”. After disappointing sales of the album, the band acrimoniously split with Earache, preferring instead to take the DIY approach to future recordings.
