Alex Hughes (Holy Money)

Posted Aug. 27, 2016, 10:26 a.m.

I would like to start by saying, if you haven't heard Deconstruct by Hatred Surge, stop. Open a new tab and go listen to it . The album is the epitome of grind-powerviolence and a staple of hardcore music that deserves your attention. Over the years I've kept this record in constant rotation. I love sharing it and have given it as a gift. It is a frantic onslaught, relentless from start to finish. To me it is perfect. The central creative force behind Hatred Surge and a prominent figure of the Texas grindcore community is Alex Hughes. His contributions to punk and hardcore span over ten years and include work in Mammoth Grinder, Insect Warfare, Iron Age, and ...

Tim Kinsella

Posted Oct. 16, 2010, 11:05 a.m.

For the past decade or so, Tim Kinsella has challenged the conventions, trends, and occasionally even the patience of his audience with the numerous projects he's been involved with- Cap'n Jazz, Owls, Friend/Enemy, Joan Of Arc, and, most recently, Make Believe. While most of Kinsella's work is typically hit-or-miss fare, Make Believe seems to have accrued a new sense of focus and direction for the singer. The group is described as "Owls without drug problems, Friend/Enemy with a consistent lineup and a practice schedule" and its press release even details a 7-point improvement plan: Would ...
