DIÄT Release New LP

DIÄT have released a new LP Positive Disintegration on Iron Lung Records
Years in the making, the follow-up or maybe even companion piece to 2015’s “Positive Energy”, “Positive Disintegration” sees the band with a bit more of a pop zap to the ever present post punk dreariness of modern Berlin life… Or even modern life at large as most of the lyrical content has to do with the monotony of barely getting by or trying to have a meaningful exchange with a remotely interesting person. These things are hard to come by most of the time and this music eats at that very feeling. It’s almost enough to make you wanna throw in the towel and move to Spain without a care in the world to haunt your remaining days. You probably won’t though, you’ll most likely listen to this record while you sip your overpriced room temperature coffee drink whilst ordering new bulbs for your anti depression lamp from a major online retailer. It just feels like life is getting away from you, ya know?

Recorded at DongXuanProductions. Mastered by Daniel Husayn. Art by Yuta Matsumura and Made Ollosp. Released by Iron Lung Records.

1.0 Lets Start Fresh

So if any of you have followed this blog/zine/webzine over the years, should know what this site is in brief it is a site that delivers news on punk releases mainly from the DIY hardcore/punk/crust scene. The idea is to link everything together creating this as more of a resource. I run a label/distro called Distro-y but find myself looking up sites like Discogs/Wikipedia/Terrible metal websites for info on bands and labels I want to know about and this is not good in my opinion as its overview information. I want to know about the band previous/current band and releases, where they are from….. basically the punk scene is not represented in the internet the way we should have it.

Anyway thats the jist of the site and will probably go into the About page in the future this section of the blog is the changelog and depending how nerdy we get I will probably move this to a sub-domain here is hoping. So the idea for the Changelog 1.0 is to give an introduction and look for a bit of help in web based projects and to introduce labels and band pages. Ok now if you a casual reader here is where we part ways I plan on introducing band and label pages and if you can help me I would be so appreciative if not no worries just check in again to see if you can.

So anyone who can help with WordPress/APIs/Discogs/Wikipedia so the bulk of the info or more so history that I can attain on bands and labels is from Discogs/Wikipedia. The primary idea would be to create an API between D-Beat Beater so that the most current information can be display on the blog or the aforementioned sites as a reference. I will be honest in the changelog and state where I need help and in this case it is with implementation of APIs and how to make them work. If you are some one who knows how APIs work or want more info on what I want to do with the site please get in touch
I hope to post in this section every week with developments and appeals on how to improve this project.

While type this I have listened to The War Goes On – S/T LP and so should you:

Profane Existence

Location:Minneapolis, USA
West Virgina, USA
“Making Punk A Threat Again”
DIY punk rock collective formed in 1989 and based in the United States by Dan Siskind and a number of others. They ran Profane Existence Records which releases anarcho-punk style releases from bands throughout the world. They also released Profane Existence magazine as well as operating Profane Existence Distribution. The collective folded in 1998, although its distribution arm, then called Blackened Distribution, continued operating. They also put out a few releases under the label Aftermath to help pay off their debts. Profane Existence restarted in 2000. In 2011, Dan Siskind stepped away from the collective. PROFANE EXISTENCE in now based out of West Virginia and primarily run by Chris Luton of Appalachian Terror Unit.
