Today, i've just read the post in Am I Mean about Shortlived, and i want to help him in this other way.

Of course, if anyone can provide with more info about them and the record (cover, reviews, how to get it, etc) would be great.

Release Notes

Australian hardcore madness

If you like it, buy it

The only info i've got it's that they're from Wellington, New Zealand, they're around unless from 2007, and they've played with Severed Head Of State and Pisschrist, therefore of some more unkown bands (to me) and this is the flyer of their release tour.

I've found some more info on them. They even have a webpage


there you'll find some bio, and more info; even a link to download their demo that will take you to a great blog

It would be great if people supported us by coming to shows and buying our records. Having limited New Zealand punk vinyl and having a ripped copy are two entirely different things though and i have no problem if people want to listen to our music. If they like it then I suppose that might make them more inclined to come to shows...?

This is a quote of some of the members of the band (i think) in a forum, in a post where someone asked for a link

I wish i could buy that record, and yes, if you played near my village i'll go to see you and buy some record but the nearest one is Lyon, and is almost 900 Km from my home.

And thanks for being cool about the blog and about posting your record.

Despues de tanto tiempo sin postear nada, aqui estoy de nuevo con el tercer disco de estos "abuelos". Me atreveria a decir que es incluso mejor que el primero. "Old, Fast, Loud!". Lo dicen ellos y yo no voy a llevarles la contraria.

Este es el primer disco que ripeo directamente de vinilo al ordenador. Espero haberlo hecho bien, pero si alguien tiene consejos que dar sobre como hacerlo mejor seran bienvenidos.


After so many time without post anything, here i'm again whit the 3rd lp by this "grandfathers". I'll even dare to say that it's even better than the first one. "Old, Fast, Loud!". They say it and i'm not gonna to say the opposite

This is the first vinyl i rip directly to the PC. I hope to have done it well, but anyone with good advices on how to do it better will be very welcomed

The follow up to last years 'Life Half Over', their third release and second one with Bosstuneage. Easily their best so far and these 12 tracks prove it and showing that even the old boys get better with age. Totally fast, un adultered and uncompromising hardcore, that is straight to the point with no apologies given. Just think of the best bands you can think of in hardcore; NEGATIVE APPROACH, POISON IDEA, NECROS etc and you'll get the idea. I love the vocals, in that they are just an adrenalin rush of pent up fury, thundering guitar riffage, bass licks and drumming all which are top notch. The recording/production on this is fantastic as you can hear everything clearly and that is crucial in this day and age, plus having a good sound only adds to this already explosive force. The lyrics complement the music, in your face, angry and definitely no let up. It's old, it's fast and it's definitely loud. Absolutely fantastic, if you aren't slightly interested in getting this - then fuck off to the old people's home. (http://directhitzine.blogspot.com)

Geriatric Unit - Distance And Damage

I’ll keep this short and to the point, because that’s exactly how Geriatric Unit keep their tunes. In fact, that’s how they keep the entirety of Distance and Damage - which may include an album-esque quota of twelve tunes, but manages to rattle through them all in well under quarter of an hour.

“Old-Fast-Loud!” reads the strapline on the rear sleeve of my review copy, and that just about sums it up. Geriatric Unit are a veteran supergroup of UK hardcore punk musicians - and when I say hardcore punk, I don’t mean the skinny-trousered haircut warriors who’ve reappropriated the term of late. Written and performed by former members of bands like Iron Monkey, Heresy and Hard to Swallow, Distance And Damage makes no concessions to fashion. And - unless you’re an aficionado of the sound already - it doesn’t make any concessions to accessibility either.

Indeed, Distance And Damage is the sound of older musicians who’ve come to accept their age (hence the band name, and songs like “Don’t Want To Be Young Again”) but who don’t see that as any reason to go back on the principles that hardcore was originally built upon. Geriatric Unit have all the channelled fury of a younger act, but tempered with the wisdom of experience.

For listeners not accustomed to the old hardcore style, it might be interesting to see Distance And Damage as capturing the sound that provides the link between punk and thrash metal: the frantic pace, driven by eighth-note snares; the simple direct lyrics, shrieked or bellowed or howled. Thrash took this template and added showy virtuosity and progressive arrangements, but Geriatric Unit are quite content with four chords, one chorus and a handful of verses per song, all hammered out at a BPM that would make a gabba DJ wince.

In short, Distance And Damage is not fun, friendly or fashionable… and I’m confident Geriatric Unit themselves would agree with me on all three counts, because they’ve quite deliberately made it that way. As such, the white-belts-and-box-fresh-hats brigade won’t be interested, but the hardcore of hardcore - the older guys who never let their ideals die - will hear this and itch for the push and shove of the pit. Stand well clear, or risk more than bruises. (http://www.rock-metal-music-reviews.com)
