Grindcore Alphabet: Q, R

Where are you, Q? No, I don’t mean beloved bygone character actor Desmond Lleweyn who gadgeted up James Bond before so many of his missions. I mean where is the grindcore Q? Folks, this is the first letter where I’ve completely struck out. Not a one as far as I can find. I’m probably wrong, and I’ll be delighted if you correct me because right now there’s no joy in Mudville; the mighty Casey Andrew has struck out.
But R, now there’s a proper, respectable grindcore letter. Luckily it more than carries its weight this week, making up for that bum Q’s laziness.LinkHere’s your letters Q and R mixtape [Mediafire]:

Resistant Culture – “Beneath the Concrete” (United States)
Rune – “Four Season Landmark” (United States)
Rato Raro – “Naturalmuerte” (Brazil)
Rot – “Back to the Punk Days” (Brazil)
Rise Above – “Else” (Japan)
Repulsion – “Crematorium” (United States)
Rehumanize – “Planet Laodicea” (United States)
Rotten Sound – “Edge” (Finland)
Realized – “Dominated” (Japan)
Righteous Pigs – “I Hope You Die in a Hotel Fire” (United States)
Retaliation – “Retribution” (Sweden)
Red – “Divided Grief Burns You” (Japan)
Rudimentary Peni – “Alice Crucifies the Paedophiles” (England)
Robocop – “Feminism Uber Alles” (United States)
Relevant Few – “Fake Healer” (Sweden)
Reversal of Man – “Butterflies” (United States)

Total to date: 306 bands

Alex listed a few bands I forgot. I feel so ashamed.

Andrew Childers said...

shit i forgot rzeznia. i've got that one laying around here. dunno how i overlooked it. good catch.

Shanetera said...

Is it just me or does Q look like he's holding a joint?

andrew said...

bond: sho q, doesh that contain a poison needle? a miniature explosive? perhapsh shome kind of micro-computer?

q. good gracious, no, bond. but you can get royally ripped. *pfffffffft*

Shanetera said...

I still laugh at that Andrew, good times as The 'Rot says.

Pascal Cretain said...

Shit, you are right, there ain't any from Q! I looked up Quill and indeed they do have the split with Charles Bronson; they are all alone in the Q Room of Grind.

How about we start one - I have a name ready : Qabalah Beyond Necropsy.

On another note, what a fine blog you have put together, Sir! After 8 years of aversionline (all hailz) and 2 years of metal inquisition (all LULZ), G&P is currently the undisputed winner.

Keep up the great work!
