Have we got a treat for you with some fast and furious old school Dutch hardcore, and no, before you start thinking, shit has The Shaman taken a sidestep into showing some seedy porn that could be purchased for a few guilders in the once sordid back alleys of Amsterdam’s Red Light District, we’re talking the punk and thrash variety in the form of T.Gondii & Sex Howitzers who are readying themselves to release a split 7”.
Entitled Keihard, which translates to ‘extremely hard’ (no, we’re still not talking porn so please stop giggling at the back), this short, sharp shock of seriously pissed off and raging hardcore punk would feel right at home playing DIY gigs in squats around The Netherlands during the late 80s and early 90s, alongside bands like the legendary Lärm/Seein’ Red, Heresy, Ripcord and even the crust punk of Hiatus.
Set to be released on the 1st June across five labels; God Unknown Records, Barnyard Boogie, Darcy Trash Records, Loner Cult and Way Back When Records, today it’s our absolute pleasure to bring you a cut from each band. First up is T.Gondii with the 53 second stomper Super that’s swiftly followed by Sex Howitzers and their 51 second thrash fest Locked In.

Both bands have members who are also in all the other Dutch bands. Fast hardcore for people who are into early UK hardcore. 14 tracks on one 7″. Fast no-frills and unpoetic thrash for the socially alienated. For fans of Heresy and Ripcord.
