Groinchurn - Already Dead (South African Grindcore)

Groinchurn was a Johannesburg, South African grind band and one of the first to obtain a record contract overseas, in this case with Germany's Morbid Records. The name was given to the band by a friend of Groinchurn's drummer Christina. The band was formed in 1993 with the trio issuing the demos Human Filth and Every Dog Has Its Decay in 1994. The band further released a split 7" EP with Captain 3 Leg and a live 7" EP. For Sixtimesnine the band travelled to Europe and toured with Krabathor and Sanity's Dawn. The favour was soon returned with Krabathor trekking across South Africa with the Brutal Truth-influenced grinders. The band released an Agathocles tribute CD in 1998 through its own Marbil Entertainment. Whoami was released in April of 2000 in South Africa and, with long delays, in autumn of the same year by Morbid Records elsewhere. The release gave the band the opportunity to tour the USA alongside Total Fucking Destruction. The album proved to be the last CD for the band.

The band is, was and always will be: Christo Bester, vocals and bass; Mark Chapman, guitar and backing vocals; and Sergio Christina, drums.

Already Dead 3" CD

'This disc may be tiny in size but it is has a gigantic sound. South Africa's premiere grind band unleashed this disc to not only serve as a teaser for their Morbid Records full length "Fink" but to give their loyal hordes of fans a very cool collectable. The disc consists of three new tracks that highlight the band continued growth and unrelenting exploration of all that is extreme in grindcore, one track from their split 7" with WOYZECH and two live tunes recorded in 1997 on their European tour with KRABATHOR. The band have always managed to walk a thin line between death metal and grindcore utilizing the stronger elements of both genres in forging their sound and this CD is no different. If words like "harsh" "fast" "blasting" "shredding" and, yep, even "brutal" are adjectives you like to see attached to the music you favor then there is absolutely no way that you can go wring with GROINCHURN. Ever.' - Jeb Branin

2012 Cape Town Anarchist Bookfair

If, for just a moment, you watched or read in horror about the killing of the Marikana miners earlier this year and wondered how on earth it could be that this happened in our country or anywhere or in the first place at all; if you, even for just a second, questioned what this means about power-relations, economic distribution and political structures, or even had no such framed thinking but simply found yourself appalled by this reality so close to your doorstep; if you felt powerless or confused by the
images playing out in front of you, then the Anarchist Bookfair is for you.

Anarchy, anarchism, anarchist, synonyms and near alternatives are often discarded or regarded with great scepticism by many people. But all anarchists really stand for and desire is a free and just world for all. Isn’t that what most of us want?

It is in this spirit that we invite you to join us on 8 December 2012 for the second Annual South African Anarchist Bookfair at the Theatre Arts Collective on the corner of Wesley Street and Milton Road in Observatory, Cape Town.
Books will be aplenty. People will talk. (Not at you, but in conversation with you, to find solutions together.) Concepts will fly. A party shall be had! Come learn more about anarchism, its philosophy, its proud history of resistance and its visions for a sustainable, free and equal future. There will be a wide range of radical literature, music, movies, talks, yu-ummie vegan food and more. Doors open at 10am and close at 7pm, followed by an after-party in true anarchist style at the Armchair Backpackers & Pub around the corner from the bookfair.

As someone once said: “if you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone is thinking.”

Why not take your mind on the trip and find some novel thoughts with which to occupy it?

- loads of awesome books on anarchism and related subjects
- talks and workshops
- facilitated conversations on themes you suggest
- films throughout the day
- a Really Really Free Market
- an after-party with an eclectic mix of local musos
- naked insurrection in the streets

*** DETAILS ***
8 December
Theatre Arts Collective (cnr Wesley Str. and Milton Rd., Observatory, Cape Town)
After-party at the Armchair Backpackers and Pub from 7pm

*** OUR VALUES ***
The bookfair has a policy against authoritarian, oppressive, racist, sexist, queer-phobic, ableist, speciesist and other disrespectful behavior that works against collective liberation for all communities. Leave the prejudice, intolerance and domination at home! Actually, get rid of it altogether!

This space is kid friendly (music to parents’ ears!). We will have some delicious kid-liked food, face-painting, games and assorted activities, including supervision so that you can browse and stuff.
