Death Sentence Show In Edmonton
Death Sentence were on the forefront of Vancouver punk's second wave during the mid eighties. Their sound, which crossed British punk and Metal with DOA-style hardcore, made them a popular live act not only in the Pacific Northwest, but across Canada. The band's two albums, Not A Pretty Sight and Stop Killing Me have sold an impressive 60,000 copies, even though they've never been re-issued on CD. To this day, they are still trying to retain the rights to their back catalog from the now bankrupt Fringe records. Death Sentence disbanded in 1991 but reformed last year with a new singer to replace Pete Cleaver, who died of a drug overdose in the mid-nineties.
Cruzar Releases Gwar single
Cruzar Media and intergalactic shock rockers, GWAR, have teamed up to bring fans a tribute to the DAYGLO ABORTIONS 1991 anti-censorship anthem 'Isn't This Disgusting''. The single will be included on the upcoming Dayglo Abortions tribute compilation, due next year. 'Isn't This Disgusting' was recorded by the late GWAR guitarist Cory Smoot (aka ''Flattus Maximus'') at his Karma Productions studio in Virginia, mixed by Rob Shallcross (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, ZIMMERS HOLE, GENE HOGLAN). 'Isn't This Disgusting' is being released in memory of the late Cory Smoot. All proceeds from the single will go to the Smoot Family Fund (donate here).
Guitarist/vocalist The Cretin of Dayglo Abortions: "This makes me feel like I have accomplished something with my life. It is a bigger compliment than any industry award or anything else I can think of. Bigger than recognition from peers. A pat on the back from the big boys. I believe proceeds from this go to Cory Smoot's family fund. So shell out the buck 99, then e-mail me a copy, cuz I can't afford it. Cheers to GWAR."
GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus: "The Dayglo's have always been one of my favorite bands ever since we played a show with them 25 years ago. So when we heard about this project we were completely stoked, not just with the idea, but the song selected for us. It pretty much sums up my whole attitude. But I had no idea it would the last time I worked with Cory Smoot in the studio. This track has Cory's last studio leads, and as usual they fucking rip. Cory may have left us but his music will live forever. CRANK IT!"
'Isn't This Disgusting' is available now on iTunes.
It was announced earlier in the week that GWAR guitarist Cory Smoot had died from a coronary artery thrombosis brought about by his pre-existing coronary artery disease. Cory, who had played the character of Flattus Maximus for over ten years, was discovered dead on the band's tour bus on November 3rd of this year. He was 34 years old.
