In late 2010, C.D. Mumma (Sissy Spacek, Unexamine, Knelt Rote) and G.W. Ashworth (Oscillating Innards, Concern) toured Japan and Europe, traveled by public transportation and performed nearly 50 shows in 78 days. On 4 of those nights, they borrowed equipment to perform secret d-beat harsh noise rituals labeled as a punk band called BACKPATCH. This tape is the sole document of the band and live performances in Warsaw, Kyoto, Tokyo and Osaka: An extremely raw, blown out, and abrasive collage of violent drums, mangled guitar and frenzied voice, executed with the hellish intensity only achievable through hard living, rugged travel and The Road. Recommended for worshippers of Nikudurei, WORLD, Disclose, Arsedestroyer, Gerogerigegege.
