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 - www.taint.co.uk
and we will still be updating this, plus our myspace and facebook pages for all things Taint related -
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
Thanks you guys, the last show was a blinder! snow kept alot away but we had some travel from france, spain and even Tim from Knut came from Switzerland! Mental and all above and beyond the call of duty!
We'll be posting up full set length videos of the last Cardiff show and the very last show in Swansea soon
Big love from Taint for Crimbo and all the best to y'all for 2011!
