THRASH THE PAIN AWAY PART II, NEW MIXTAPE!!!!
by M. L. Morrill
I am sharing with you a recent project that I have wanted to do for a while which is a digital mixtape. DON’T CALL IT A MOTHERFUCKIN’ PODCAST, that’s the MOST LINGUISTICALLY OFFENSIVE TERM I’VE EVER HEARD! I made this tape after a recent change in my life threatened my positivity. However instead of going down the stinkhole of depression I proactively deleted all of the sad songs on my computer. And while trying to keep myself busy by cleaning up I found an old mix tape I made for SWARM!’s Crucial Vegan Friendship Picnic. I popped that tape in and felt the rush of bummerproof posi vibes. A few days later I went to Atomix Coffee on Chicago Avenue and replaced all the depressed music with a few gigs worth of hardcore/power violence/doom/thrash. Most of these are vinyl rips which I then compiled into a single sixty minute playlist turned tape, and then re digitized that cassette into two MP3s, one for each side, made some cover art, and now present to you, My Friends!
It’s the most ruling mix in a long while. It features, PV mainstays Spazz, Infest, Lack of Intrest, CB, MitB, and more. It also features a couple oddities I didn’t originally associated with hardcore such as XBXRX, Men’s Recovery Project, and 16 Bitch Pile-Up. which I have to admit, I think I have a crush and that band, because they slay! So here it is, a few days of work and procrastination I titled THRASH THE PAIN AWAY PT. II.
REMEMBER, STAY POSITIVE AND SHRED THE GNAR!
