3 Toed Sloth - ...Against The Odds 2x7"


Words from the label:

"Six previously unreleased tracks from the dark ages of sydney in the early 90's a time when record shops, fanzines, small labels & venues were in their death throes if not already dead. Recorded live to 1/2" tape on a monday evening in early '93 by William a young fan then doing a recording engineers course who offered 3 toed sloth a free session at his TAFE college studio. The intended 7" never happened & the reels laid dormant in the bottom of a wardrobe for the next 17 years until Unwucht heard a rough mix taken from an old cassette tape & enthusiastically proposed releasing it. The 1/2" master was finally tracked down & mixed in september 2010. '...against the odds' is now proudly presented by Unwucht in a hand xeroxed gatefold sleeve including a full colour postcard."

"Damn! “Unearthed treasure” is quite an understatement when it comes to this piece of classic damaged Sydney noise rock. Recorded live back in 1993 to 1/2" tape by a TAFE student it took seventeen years and a German label to put out these six previously unreleased tracks of racket that hit you hard with their Venom P Stinger-like gutter and gritty post-punk. Drummer Tom – whose band, the legendary feedtime, had broken up a few months before this recording – adds a loose energy to the songs, while the guitar veers to the other side of “tight”." Tim Scott, Mess & Noise
