There is change a-foot at Wholesale Meat Direct: Creative Commons Record Store! We are still enjoying the hospitality of Format (15 Peel St Adelaide), but we have moved into the basement, where we are free to lounge on coaches and host casual musical events on a regular basis!The other big change is that we’ve decided to open on Thursday and Friday afternoons only. This will allow us to make more of an event of each Wholesale Meat Direct business day. We’ll be open from 3-6pm on Thursdays and from 3-8pm on Fridays.So come in, hear some music, download some free music, buy some cheap CDs (we have cassettes and vinyl too!), sit on a couch.Cheers

Hi, long time no post!
We’ve been busy collaborating with Format, coming up with a brand new local CD store that is guaranteed to treat you well. It’s going to be home to as many local bands’ CDs as we can gather, for sale at a price of their choosing. And there’s a twist: we’ve also got two computers full of music for free listening and downloading! It’s going to be under a Creative Commons (by-nc) license. This means that you’re free to download it and use it for any non-commercial purpose you like, as long as you give the artist acknowledgment. We’re going to be selling hand-made CD artwork, guitar picks and the likes too.We’re very excited about it! If you’re in a band and want to get your music to us, come and drop in a CD or email us your tracks! Even if you’re not in a band, come in, hang out, buy CDs, burn CDs, be a part of the revolution.Format is at 15 Peel St Adelaide (just off Hindley).

This new instrumental EP from Diesel Witch will make you want to freak out and surf 10ft waves over an exposed reef!After busting out all 6 tracks in one day at Wholesale Meat’s favourite back room, the band then returned to add some surprise overdubbed embellishments, doubling the overall screwballness and achieving such goals. 15.4 minutes of intense, salty bliss!Download it now! (right click, save as etc.)
Check the Diesel Witch myspace and look out for gigs! CD version is also available at gigs!

After a year of recording the various environments of Adelaide and Japan the New Lepers Ensemble has released its first offering. It is available on the meat servers for download (as via links) but I am also getting some cds out to people as it is much more satisfying to listen that way. Free copies will be available in paper sleeves but also a limited run of special microsuede cd covers and artwork will be available for a contribution of ten dollars. Which ever way you swing, if you catch a glimpse of me please ask me for a copy as I will probably have a few on me, or feel free to contact me so I can get one to you. They are also available from Big Star in Adelaide (city store).
The music itself is a bastardisation of ambiences snatched from unsuspecting societies mixed with the less friendly sounds of nature. Add in some jilted rhythm instrumental contributions and you have a fair idea of what this might sound like.
I am also interested in doing film soundtrack material or collaborations. For those wishing to contact they can do so at firstname.lastname@example.org

Here it is folks, the ‘Daughters song that I recorded for a uni project. The mix could use a little more work, but as it is still lets the natural beauty of the song shine forth! I’m Blatant, Common Roll Enjoy!Cheers

Hello world! Here are the new songs from Hermit (featuring former members of Terminus and Sounds of Dentage) that I recorded a few weeks ago. As you’d expect if you’ve heard their previous work, the songs are absolute bliss! - Carnage - Worth It - Evolve - Thought Torture …..(I’ll post the rest shortly - uploading appears to take ages)Cheers, Jamie S

After 3 years of grooves, recording, rerecording and a couple of gigs, the Well Meaning Shells have finally released an album. So far we’re pulling an ultra special limited edition run of burnt CDs in paper sleeves with artwork glued to it and the entire album is available free from our servers (links below). If you want a hard copy, contact us on myspace, or just ask us at a Meat gig and we’ll get you one!
Our team enters the “studio” with two members (Jamie and I) who participate in various events such as guitar, vocals, bass, drums, clarinet, trumpet and electronics, and sometimes win. While we formally compete in the Novelty Pop division, we do like to indulge in all manner of crude sonic farce, so definitely listen if you want to hear “very insightful songs about the environment, politics, and economics”.
Regards, Jacob Shell
