The duo of Mark Sadgrove (guitar) and Mark Anderson (drums) are a couple of New Zealand expats based in Japan with only a handful of releases to document their decade or so existence. So, we suppose its excusable if you’re not in the loop. The best way to describe them to a neophyte is to image a Back from the Grave band that was weened on Operation of Sonne and fronted by a teenage Robert Ashley. THAT would make some sense. But it doesn’t come close to describing the sound one hears in the throes of a white knuckled fever dream, now does it?
