    • Hails Ninehertzer's!

      Chris from Taint here,

      Just wanted to say thanks for all the support over the years and hope we may see some of you at the last ever Taint show (although no doubt distance will be an issue to alot of you)

      I set up a Ninehertz account ages ago then realised i wasn't the best at keeping things up to date haha! Technophobe! But i constantly check in to the site and seeing as we don't have Stoner Rock .com any more I'd say you got a great contender for the best site for this kinda thing!

      Anyways, for those of you who are able to attend the show we will have the last batch of our new 'Heart Roots tshirts for sale, plus a beautiful silkscreened poster designed by our own Jimbob commemorating the event.

      We've had a truly amazing 16 years and again i want to thank all those who i have seen show their support on Ninehertz over these years. We truly do appreciate it!

      for those of you who didn't know about this then you can see the official statement here -

      and we will still be updating this, plus our myspace and facebook pages for all things Taint related -!/pages/Taint/108541505876388

      Just to keep you informed myself and Jimbob are planning new projects, Jimbob has his one-man hardcore project on the go
      check it out here (brutal!!!)

      and he's been jamming with some talented dudes from Cardiff

      and as ever is keeping up his amazing artwork and illustration, check that out here, new stuff for Clutch and Neurosis etc

      And I've started a new band called NUKEBIRDS along with Dean Berry from Iron Monkey/Dukes Of Nothing/Capricorns/In Conference With Jackals on guitar, Nathan Perrier from Labrat/Capricorns/In Conference With Jackals/Conflict on drums, Steve Horne from In Conference With Jackals on Vox and myself on bass guitar

      We recorded a 4 track e.p. a few months back and plan on releasing it early 2011, 3 of our tracks and a Motorhead cover (Over The Top, featuring Stu from Acrimony on lead guitar)

      It aint like we're reinventing the wheel, just getting together and loving jamming in the vein of heroes of ours like Celtic Frost, Motorhead, Danzig and Voivod, utter filth basically with drumming like King Crimson!

      I'm also stil drumming on and off for Cardiff based band Spider Kitten and we plan on recording an album together next year

      So for now, peace and love to y'all, merry Taintmass and a happy new dawn!

    • Taint will be missed. My favourite Taint gig was at Roadburn 08 - first band on, best band all weekend, against many many amazing bands.

      The new band sounds interesting, good luck.
