I have been busy, however after a conversation with rob of the genetic misprints yeasterday night I can now reveal that the long awaited CAST PARTY trilogy is ready for release.

Thier last release was last october and asfter the hiatus that they requested. The GM are back.

Rob and Darren have recorded a trilogy of thier most diverse material yet, making use of all of the characters they have created in the years they have been active.

All 3 albums will be released in the next few days. Expect ALOT of new music.

So far I have had the pleasure of listening to 'Sheffield FTW' and i agree with rob's own description of it as 'The most fun listen to date'. The other two albums 'Mulletproof' and 'Tom the Pimpin' Teddy Bear' will be released alongside.

I cannot wait until the label is back in business with regular new releases and the blog is yet again packed with all new FREE music.

Band Bio: Save Games Not Lives


Profound Wanderer- Lead Vocals/ Programming

The Observer- Backing Vocals

A Few months ago in the City Of Bristol in the UK, two gamers met at a nintendocore concert. They chatted  throughout the night and exchanged contact details. 3 Days later they met up for a jamming session and 'Save Games Not Lives' was born.

Within a week they had recorded thier debut album in a bedroom studio, remixing and redubbing old Smashing Grandpa tracks. It has taken lots of mastering and unforseen circumstances but it is finally done.

Discography: (Will All Be Made Available To Download In Due Course)

2010 (Upcoming) - What's My Grandson's Name Again?

Many thanks again to Rob of GM for the contact.

 CI7IZ3N850. 2008 - ???
Hardclash/ Noise

In 2007 a mysterious artist burst onto the underground scene in the UK. He would never perform without a mask and mysteriously sounded different everytime he played. His music was a mixture of hardclash vocals, punk lyrics and chiptune synths- dubbing his genre simply 'noise'.

In 2008 and after much controversy (Due to his disliking of recording) he relesed his debut album 'Una (Vasta) Historia De La Violencia', complete with 5 tracks that we're all called 'liar' in different languages. He released this on his own independant label 'whoreclash records'. Due to overwhelming demand (and the fact that he played for free and had no money) the cds sold out in minutes on his 'Alright Overnight' tour.

Since the release he claims that he has been waiting for a label with the correct 'ethics' and approach to music before he releases more, fortunately for us, he found U!D!R.

Believe me it is impossible to tell what we're going to get from him, when you listen to his debut there is such a vast range of everything, including songs reversed in other songs and whole copied sections. We want to ensure the mystery behind the figure that is 'CI7IZ3N580'

Discography: (Will All Be Made Available To Download In Due Course)

2008 - Una (Vasta) Historia De La Violencia

He is currently recording his latest release 'Parallelobomb' at Ragnarok Studios (Of Genetic Misprints Fame) I have to give props to Rob of GM for the contact.


SITE UPDATE 16/6/2010

Mute Here,

I'm sure that all of you have been waiting for news of the next steps for U!D!R. Well over the past couple of weeks I have been securing a few new artists for the label. Lets just say one is very different and one is similar, haha i'm giving nothing away!

Over the next few days I will be adding 2 new 'Band Bio' pages, these will provide details on the artists and thier type of music. There also should be uploads of both of these artists within a week.

In Other News, as our artists are such a tight community, I have decided that we should use every opportunity for you (the fans) to really get to know them, so I intend to ask the same 5 questions to each artist and post them.

Make Sure You Stick Around Guys, Because This Is A Very Exciting Time For The Label

Thats It....

The final GM release (for now) has been uploaded to the blog, and I would just like to take this time to thank the guys ar Genetic Misprints and Ragnarok Studios for thier input to the blog. Here are just a few statistics about thier achievement in the last year:

Genetic Misprints Have Produced:
8 Studio Albums
2 B-Sides Albums
3 EPs
2 Compilation Albums
3 Singles

The longest track is '18:01 Overture' at 18:01 and the shortest is 'Peter' at 5 seconds.
That makes up 19 releases in 10 months, just under two a month.
Producing in total 282 songs (wasting 11 hours,, 34 minutes and 24 seconds of shitty songs on a guitar)

To date the most popular album (in downloads) is Viva La Cheese which has reached a staggering 4359 downloads.
And the entire Genetic Misprints back catalogue has had over 15,000 downloads.

For a band who started out just by messing around with recording software in the chrismas break from college, its isn't half bad. They have allwed this blog to flourish and become what I always wanted; a potal for unsigned bands, who don't care about the money, to spread thier music, no matter what genre or style.

To all of you avid readers out there, don't worry because I have a few surprises up my sleeve and all will be revealed in due course.
