20082012 Packin' up, packin' in
We'll be playing our last ever gig in Germany (not just last ever in Berlin, sorry) this coming Saturday, 25 August at Kastanienkeller in Berlin together with our mates from GOVERNMENT FLU.
Why? Well, after our South East Asian tour last year, things have gone very quiet for us for a number of reasons, including fathering children, working new jobs, etc. Additionally we realised that the last new song was written when we were recording the second LP. And while planning the third album had already started, some of us couldn't muster the needed enthusiasm to see it through in the face of the aforementioned adversities and strain on time and resources. So rather than artificially prolonging the whole affair for a couple of months trying to revive the 2008 state of affairs, we'd like to make it quick and easy. 6 years of archaic hardcore punk must be enough. We had originally planned to play a number of weekends more, but this won't happen anymore. We're still planning to do a weekend in the UK, but Saturday will be the last European mainland gig, so see ya there!
Thanks, we had a blast (and so have you) and will have another one on Saturday.

Things are moving slowly, but they're moving. A few gigs in the near future. Back to basics.
17012012 War is over
We have to cancel the upcoming tour in April because of work shit (Poznan & Wroclaw rejoice: The first weekend is still go!). Gutted. Perhaps there'll be another one later this year. In the meantime, we'll just write a new album. FUCK OUR LIVES!

01062011 Air to waves
We got played on Oz radio FBI Radio about a week ago, check out Ausgrind, and thanks to our tour mates Michael Crafter who were special grindcore expert guests on that show and sneaked us in. Here's the complete stream:
For those who will believe their own ears only, listen to it from 33.40.
20052011 To to fro
The schedule for our South East Asian tour has been updated, a few dates will still come, jabs will be injected, passports will be renewed, flights have hopefully been changed for the last time. To get ready for the big haul, we'll be benefitting war orphans at the Rauchhaus on 18 June. Not bad, eh!

This coming Thursday, April 14, we're going back home for the ultimate incestuous mosh-up w/ our brothers and sharers in personnel ATOMGEVITTER and DISCO VIETNAM. Koma F to ashes!
OUT NOW on Nikt Nic Nie Wie (PL), and we have a few copies to sell. Totally *golden* sleeve digipak, both albums (26 songs), 12 pages booklet. Get it for a tenner from us or 25 Zł from NNNW. Oh, and also a wee interview with Oz grind blog AUSGRIND is online now.
24022011 Frying Pan to Fire
Sorry folks, we had to cancel Saturday's gig at Alte Pauline in Detmold. A matter of life and death (well, jive and jazz more like). We'll be back another time. Leipzig is still a go, thankfully!
23022011 Format to Format
The Nikt Nic Nie Wie CDs are ready and on the way to us here in Berlin. Expect them to be available at our Berlin gig on 1 April. The latest. If we're lucky, we might be able to bring some to Leipzig and Detmold as well. Also, the good folks at Revulsion Recs. and Cactus Recs. will put out both albums on one tape in time for our South East Asian tour! We're thrilled! Thanks, Talib. And if you haven't had enough yet, there'll be a split CD with Michael Crafter (a power-violence outfit from Oz) and Injakmati (a raw punk band from Indonesia), and a DIY CD-R version of the 2-album tape (for those less cursed with funds) as well, the latter courtesy of our friend Dolly. Full blast!
25012011 Rocker to Rocker
The masters and artwork for our forthcoming CD on Nikt Nic Nie Wie are sent out to the printers and pressing plant. If all goes well, it will be out in February 2011! The CD includes both of our vinyl albums, will come in a gold digipak with 12 pages booklet including all lyrics (that is, the "Binhead" lyric is there this time, and also put online here), and will make us "labelmates" with HERESY, MDC, SEDITION, LOS CRUDOS, UNHINGED, HIS HERO IS GONE, CRASS, SUBHUMANS, POST REGIMENT, HARUM SCARUM, BIALA GORACKA, and our friends THE FIGHT and GOVERNMENT FLU. How fuckin' cool is that? Well... Only the best for the best!

We're back from tour and had a blast! Elaborate thank yous, etc. to follow. Forgot to include the lyrics to BINHEAD in the inner sleeve for the new album. Also to follow. Didn't realise we were playing our 100th gig in Leicester on this past tour. Well, we did. This is the new website. Buy the new album from our "shop" soon (send us an email if it's not online yet: mail@NOSPAM.family-man.org (delete the NOSPAM. bit, obviously, before sending). Or get it from either Behind The Scenes Recs. or Hasiok Recs. Best get it from us though.
