Deviated Instinct¬† – “Terminal Filth Stench-Core ” LP

The Norwich scarecrow punks of the late 80s, with their second demo tape, released on vinyl for the first time. Recorded on an 8-track in someone’s spare bedroom, (as was the DIY spirit of the age, back in 1986) and marking their progression away from third rate anarcho punk (anyone heard the first demo? – good grief that was a bad’un) into the realms of Celtic Frost influenced metallic hardcore punk. D.I. were part of the second generation of black clad scruffbags that followed in the wake of Antisect and Amebix, and like other bands from that period of time – Doom, Hellbastard, Axegrinder – studio production was as rough and lo-fi as teenage ears could tolerate (which, it has to be said, was amazingly low),¬† musicianship also was often a bit on the ropey side – there was a definite shortage of competent bass-players back in them days (the gateway instrument for the musicaly challenged, myself included). But regardless of it’s obvious faults, this is a recording that scholars of UK punk of the 1980s are no doubt already familiar with, and this is a great opportunity to own a decent copy of this landmark DIY release (remastered by Bri Doom), dusted-off, and repackaged with new artwork by the in-band creative talent, Mid.
These copies are imported from the US (via Sonarize Records), thus the price is high. Cheaper Euro copies are, I expect, also available, as it has been co-released with Agipunk Records of Italy.
