Utarid Discography anyone?

Arwith just emailed me about the idea to release the discography of the great Utarid from Malaysia. They were one of the first bands from sout asia known also in Europe and the USA, delivering a great mix of Orchid-like hardcore and heartfelt lyrics with some new ideas.



Their “De[ad]mo Tape” as well as their split floppy disk with the also no longer active Am I Dead Yet! from Belgium were the first two releases on Broken Glasses Records.
After a long delay of a planned discography it should now finally be released, Hugues from The Flying Worker/Puzzle Records will design the artwork. They are still in the search for labels which want to be part of this release, so anyone interested in this should just get in contact with Arwith.

You can listen to Accent Fall On The First Syllable from their 4-way split 12″ with A Fine Boat That Coffin, Am I Dead Yet! and The Mock Heroic.

There is also a special pre-order package limited to 50 pieces: You can get the record on blue vinyl with a shirt for 18 euros without postage.

As a second, perhaps already older news, there is the Narshardaa Single Club no. 1 which starts in september 2009 and includes 4 7inches, each of which is limited to 350 pieces. German subscribers will get one record of the following bands each month from september to december (subscribers outside Germany will get it in one package due to high postage rates and the low price of the single club as stated below):

  1. The Now-Denial
  2. Idle Hands
  3. Planks
  4. Trend

The package costs 20 euros including shipping worldwide, so this is a great deal if you ask me. I’m a fan of such single club things for sure.
