WADGE, one of Canada's grindcore veteran band that still going strong today, best known for their use of drum machine programming which formed a unique foundation on their songwriting structures and progression grinds on into 2014 with another EP, SCREAMING FOR TIKI. The Hawaiian theme, TIKI obsession and humorous elements continues that seems likely to be synonymous to WADGE as most of this band releases have the themes and elements eversince THE ROAD TO HANA full length released in 2005 by REGURGITATED SEMEN RECORDS. Paul Pfeiffer still having the credibility in doing what he's good at for more than 20 years and WADGE remained in the same league as AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED & ENEMY SOIL.

"By our final gig we were pretty burnt out, the band was a train wreck, we were all jobless alcoholics and rehearsals were basically fist fights. It was going nowhere. Gus was off the rails, but then again we all were really at that time. We played drunk & sloppy. I was playing through some shitty little practice amp with a banana shoved down my jeans. During a song I took it out and peeled it and threw it at some girls in the crowd, but they ducked & it hit the bar chick in the face. She was furious. She hated me, our band, everything to do with Rupture. Mullschlucka were a very short-lived Geelong thrash band doing Dayglo Abortion covers. The Kill had Neil on vocals. I don't think Corruption even played, no idea who they were. Neil bloodied himself up on stage, so not to be outdone, when Gus got on stage he spent more time smashing his face with the microphone than actually singing. The gig was a total fucking mess. But hey, afterwards I had a few Geelong crew slap me on the back laughing, so maybe at least a few folk found it entertaining. In hindsight this gig accurately reflected where the band was at the time - in the process of total meltdown. RIP Gus." [Stumblefuck [guitarist] 2013]
This raw hardcore punk treat will be the classic and memorable album for the life-long fans as the tracks captured the anger, ego, honest and proud showmanship performance were recorded during RUPTURE live at the Arthouse, Melbourne on 7TH SEPT, 2001, months before the death of GUS.
Nice cover artwork amazingly done by FRANK OBLAK.
