Just over one week ago we released our first album of music in cooperation with GRIND TO DEATH. Entitled The Only Good Tory, it’s a compilation of 46 songs from 46 bands, focused on UK grind, powerviolence, harsh crust, and fastcore, and it showcases a tremendous array of head-wrecking talent.
Our goal for this release was and is solely to spread the music. Each of the bands agreed to contribute their tracks to this effort, and we in turn have made it available on the NCS Bandcamp page as a free download (along with accompanying tracklist and booklet of artwork for each song by Kex Whelan). In the 9 days since the Bandcamp page went live, we’ve had almost 5,000 song plays and nearly 500 downloads of the album.
We’re also having a limited edition run of cassette tapes made by the awesome DIY Noise, but we’re going to be giving those tapes away, too. Here at NCS, we’ll have a tapes to give away through a contest designed and judged by Special NCS Contest Consultant, Phro. More details about that will be forthcoming.
We’re also in discussions with a label who is interested in releasing the comp as a CD. Of course, we won’t do that without the consent of all bands, and in any case, no profit from any CD sales will go to us.
And last, but certainly not least, we have this one further update: We’ve added a bonus track to the Bandcamp album.
It’s a song called “Kill.The.Pheasants.Fuck.The.Peasants” that we previously featured here at NCS by a new band named Posh Cunt, the members of which are Grim Kim Kelly, Al Bulmer (Acral Necrosis and other UK bands), and Ryan Kasparian (Encrust). For those of you who have already downloaded the comp, this track is available for separate download (as are all the other 46 songs), and of course it will be included in the album download from this point forward.

Will there ever be a “The Only Good Tory” T-shirt?
Holy shit, I didn’t even know I wanted this, but now I do!!!
No shirts are planned at the moment, but then again we never plan anything, so who knows?
How about temporary tattoos to put on my weiner when I’m sad?
You seem to have mistaken this page as a message board for people who want to talk about their weiners. Also, temporary tattoos are not metal.
Good point: how about automated tattoo machines?
Or better yet: branding irons!! That’ll give me a nice jolly laugh!
And, no, I have made no mistake. You are mistaken in thinking this is NOT a place to talk about penises.
No automated tattoos. No branding irons. The lorises will do it with their teeth, dipped in my blood.
An update: No shirts yet, but NCS and Grind To Death are going to make logo patches!
I will now commended with throwing money at you through my computer screen.
Likely NCS patch design, commended to you:
Is that, “The Only Good Tory”-patches or NCS patches?
The only plan now is to get NCS and Grind To Death patches made. But I’ll see if it’s possible to do one for the cover of the comp, too.
