No Anchor Will Give You Enough Rope...

Brisbane's local proponents of black sonic sludge gunk No Anchor had a 7" to throw your way. Titled Rope/Pussyfootin', it features four tracks including an ace cover of Big Black's 'Jordan, Minnesota'. Coming in at under ten minutes, the 7"s offerings of short and concise songs are a testament to their ever-evolving songwriting (despite apparently doing the recording in 4 hours - that's sixty minutes a song), and the power that these songs exude (especially 'Rope') is jaw-dropping. Metal for the indie crowd? Well, it certainly is more accessible to an extent, but still as loud and abrasive as fuck.

Recorded by No Anchor's own Donovan Miller and Innez Tulloch on new(ish) Nowhere Records, Rope/Pussyfootin' will be available on March 17 in both limited Blue (100) and Black (150) vinyl. Digitally though, you can pay what you want - get it here - but be warned, there will be no Big Black cover on the digital release.

To coincide with the launch, No Anchor hace a party for you! They will be playing at Woodland, ably supported by Whitehorse(Melbourne), Quiet Steps, Tiny Spiders and DJ Swedetooth. Its all for a paltry $12, and doors at 8:30pm. More about this when it comes down the rabbithole...
