New Bono harsh noisegrind soon

Just about finished mixing our first noisegrind material. Probably have this up on bandcamp within the next few days. It's not really pure noisegrind, there's still a tonne of harsh noise material and the drums are kinda mixed too low (next recordings will be better). I just about wrecked my voice recording this stuff because I didn't have a mic for my most of vocals, and I just had to hope the mics on our amps would pick it up (it did, very slightly). It sounds very sloppy and amateur, which is great in some ways but I'd like to tighten up my drumming more. 37 tracks, 22 minutes. Recording again on Saturday so hopefully that session will be just as fruitful.

Also setting up a Bono bandcamp account, but apparently you can't upload lossless files bigger than 220mb? So I probably wont be able to get all of our material on there (Monolith #1, Obscured Voice), kinda sucks. Oh well, whatever.

No more physical releases for a while

Just a quick update to say I've decided to not do any more physical releases for a while. When I first started Oligoscene, my idea was to have very limited, DIY CDr or cassettes and then spread the releases further using the internet. Having a physical product to actually make, look at and hold was appealing to me. These days, that's not really how I consume music, and I feel like it's more trouble than it's worth. Oligoscene will now be a net label of sorts? Who knows, I'll probably just continue uploading stuff to mediafire or maybe bandcamp. This will hopefully mean a quicker turnaround of material and more motivation on my end.

I might still release physical stuff on other labels and if I ever find the motivation I might start making CDrs or even cassettes again.

More Bono coming soon! Tar Pits eventually! Screwed mix in the works!
