NEW WAVE OF THE GRAVE NEW BEAT


was emailed the text of this post by Rodney Shades of the mighty Thisclose (you can download the first Thisclose album free HERE if you haven't heard this OUTSTANDING band you are missing out) I have been a fan of Thisclose since they first started and have been awaiting this compilation of like minded bands since it was first mentioned a few months back. He asked me to forward the email to anyone who could possibly help them spread the word and as i didn't know anyone i thought I'd give them some space here, I have heard a few bands on here but have yet to receive a copy of the CD however Thisclose, Broken Brains, Rodney Shades Band and Drilsearch would be worth your time individually so as you're getting those 4 bands plus 8 others and a shitload of songs this is definitely worth your time. I don't normally buy compilations but as so much of this music is exclusive to this CD and the packaging is great and the price is cheap do yourself a favor and pick one of these up! Best £5 you could possibly spend!

*NOTE* I AM POSSIBLY GOING TO BE SELLING THIS MYSELF SO IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN A COPY PLEASE MAKE A COMMENT. 

Otherwise contact the man himself for a copy at  x4298x@gmail.com 

So that being said here's the message from the man himself Mr Rodney Shades....
