Pinchgut - Dead Cities

    picture taken by Erica Freas

  Pinchgut are Jesse (drums), Jordon (bass), Lara (vocals) , Leigh (guitar) and Tim (guitar)..... "5 people living in and around Hobart Tasmania/Australia making loud political DIY hardcore punk." They take their name from the historical Sydney Harbour landmark Fort Denison (aka Pinchgut) at which early convicts who had committed secondary offences were confined in leg irons and fed on just bread and water.

  Their first gig was at the Brisbane Hotel in Hobart in March 2014 (supporting New Zealand band Rogernomix) and it was only a month later that they were on the same bill as legendary Canadians D.O.A.

  Their first release saw them contribute a song (Stats) to the Girls Radio Offensive Compilation Tape Vol 2. You can check that out here : https://girlsradiooffensive.bandcamp.com/album/compilation-tape-2

  It took a while to finally appear but in April of this year they released their debut, self titled, ep and you can find it here : https://pinchgut.bandcamp.com/releases

  From the ep, here's a raging feminist hardcore anthem that deserves mentioning in the same breath as Aus Rotten's classic The Second Rape, it's called Dead Cities......
