HOF007 ::: VUUR / GRINDING HALT - split LP

Well well well, these one took a lot of time to be done, but finally was. And well i was verrrrryyy happy to make it in the end. Two of the best DIY punk hardcore bands of these days. Nowadays VUUR have split up and two of them have started KINGTERROR with members of SL-27 and RUBBISH HEAP. And well GRINDING HALT, is keeping their own way... and do it well!!! Have I already said to you that GRINDING HALT had a lot of "ex-members of"? SHIKARI, THE LAST MILE, and many others.

Here's a download link I have found. Feel free to use it. Share and enjoy! I guess the disc is sold out, or almost!

Listen and DOWNLOAD on Bandcamp

Here's the piece of text I have writen for this split 12inch and found back on my computer. Read it, hate it or enjoy it!

Each day we grow older, that's a fact. We cannot makes things against this. And while we grow older we get more responsabilities. We may have work. Some have families. Others even have childs. This does not change anything. We still are into punk rock. We still stick to the DIY ethics. Maybe more than before. I mean DIY have its set of values. But while getting older you look on many ways to extend your DIY view to your daily actvities. How to extend your anti-business feelings into your daily life. For example, some might be vegetarian, others vegan, for some animal liberation ideas. But this is not a mean to an end. You then start to think more about human rights, about fair way to treat people from everywhere. You think about anti-capitalism as an extension to all of this. And then you try to incorporate that way of thinking into your daily consumption, or even better: in consumming less. Consumption to a certain extend is a need to live (think about food), consumption for the pleasure of getting into the new trend is just stupid.

So while getting older I got to think about many things. I read many books and discuss with too many people. This lead me to think on some subject that society (read : the consumption society) don't want us to see. You learn and grow older. But in some way your DIY ethics was/is a first step to something you can extend on too many things. I won't list anything here. The idea is not make the right list which for some reasons stupid asshole would name « to be DIY, do this and that ».

DIY, means Do It Yourself. This does not mean Do It Alone... that is the capitalist idea which Liberal Parties try to impose on society those days. We tend to extend Do It Yourself, in Do It Together. But DIY means, we can do it... without the help of any major label, any coporate society support etc. We feel we can do it, for us, and for people who care of this! We don't care of making money with this. If you do, you'd better leave and work as a slave for any coporate society then. But your place is not here.

We first do it to enjoy, but we put a set of ethics. These ethics might be slightly different for all of us, but we all stick to a close idea of DIY. The way to interact, as a community... I mean a community, not a corporation. It is not any industry (even if some would love to raise money on this). This community have brought me many things along the years. Call it punk or hardcore, I don't mind. DIY was a way to be in touch with people. I mean in real, not just behind a computer screen. Life is way more better than fake interaction. Through this I've travelled in different part of Europe (but not that far), met many great people. I have helped many bands playing here. I have made a zine when I was young, I still do one but on Internet now. I release records. I've toured with bands from the label ... But for me, the more important, is the relations, the connection with people, the thing we can share together through music. In one word : the passion.
