Nice to be back blogging like in the old Sludgeswamp days … Stank were not from NOLA but they made some glorious, filthy, corrosive, molasse-thick, uncut sludge metal. Stank (such a name!) was rather short-lived (1998-2002) and involved guys from fine acts such as Mugwart, Beaten Back to Pure and Lunch, besides Kilara, Alabama Thunderpussy, etc. Therefore the last-known line-up included Kevin Whitley on guitar/vocals, Greg Bulman on bass and Dave Johnson aka D.C. on drums. Stank just released a split with Mugwart in 1999 and only one, crazily badass full-length album, Slug Trail Eyes, in 2000. The latter landed like a burning meteorite in the Swamp short before the adventure ended in mid 2011 and thanks to a close friend of the band.
I feel sharing Stank’s old kickass tunes may be nice for thanking my mates who invited me here and an awesome way for plunging into the mood of Swampchode’s blog … \m/
I originally started this blog with the intent to create an archive of New Orleans/Louisiana based bands demo's, EP's, full lengths and live recordings. My primary focus was to feature a little bit of everything going on in this great city. There are many bands past and present that have never gotten the recognition that they (in my opinion) truly deserved.
So I figured why not start converting all these demo tapes and etc. and share them with the world? But as I kicked the idea around on a few message boards and with friends, I decided to not just limit the page to Louisiana.
So here you will find artists from all across the globe, some may be well known, others may not. Here at Nola 504 and More, the Krewe and myself all have very unique musical tastes, which I think helps our page really stand out.
Yes, we may feature a lot of metal, but we also have punk, country, jazz, rockabilly, etc. Musical "gumbo" so to speak; meaning a little bit of everything. So, if you are/were in a band from Louisiana, or anywhere else in the world, and care to share it with the rest of the world, drop one of us an email. We'd love to check it out!
