Divisions 7" Mp3's

These are two mp3s from the 7", I've deleted the Demo mp3s because this is a better representation of the record. "Vomit Hounds" and "Blinding Rain" are the first songs on the A and B side of the record and are some of the most pissed off, heavy hardcore songs I've ever heard. Justin's vocals sound fucking poisoned and furious. This EP is available from me for $5 ppd, paypal me at or mail cash, check or MO to me: John Fahy/Human Crush 15011 Lakeside View Dr. Apt. 2402/ Fort Myers/ FL 33919.

I'm really proud of this record. - "Vomit Hounds" - "Blinding Rain"

In The Beginning...

Hello. My name is John Fahy. I am in a band called Merkit, write a column for Maximumrocknroll, and am starting a small record label.

I started this blog to draw attention to some out-of-print records, tapes, etc. that fly under the radar and deserve to be dug up and listened to. I will also be putting up mp3s from anything I release on my label, Human Crush Recordings. First up will be the Divisions 7" which I just put out, then some older stuff.

I will also of course be doing the usual bullshitting about life, politics, music and everything else, as well as throwing out news about the label.

The point of the Human Crush label is to showcase bands that I feel are some of the best hardcore punk have to offer. Usually, I go for music that is ugly, mean, noisy, heavy, weird or interesting. Any bands that are talented and fit that criteria are what I seek out. I don't care if most people don't like what I'm doing, I figure if I listen to something and freak out about it, it should get a platform so other people have the opportunity to get the same reaction I did, however small their numbers may be. Music that is genuinely weird, violent, original and powerful usually doesn't get credit until much later than they should anyway.
