Swarm presents Mark N

Back in the 1990s a unique music scene formed in Newcastle, a small industrial city a few hours drive or train North of Sydney. A bunch of lads were making extremely aggressive hardcore techno on crappy Amiga computers. Noisy 4- and 8-bit samples, distorted kick drums and nasty, nasty samples. It was brilliant. Check out Nasenbluten for a taste.

One of the protagonists and the founder of one of the seminal labels, Bloody Fist, was Mark N. So when he popped up playing at a Swarm rave I had to go.

Loads of fun. We also enjoyed sets from Luke Snarl and Vic Zee.
