The Cherry Point & Vikkkings - Split

Oh, did you think that Badgerstump and I had posted all the Cherry Point split cassettes already? We have not. There are many more of these things. In a sense. The Cherry Point (along with his friend and collaborator John Wiese, with whom he played as the accurately-self-described "double flamethrower unit" LHD) acted as an ambassador for the international 00's noise sub-underground. Some of the bands with whom they split a 7", tape or CDR seem to have very little other evidence of their existence. I'm thinking of Aeon Eon, Jetstream Panic, and a noise-rock/industrial-ish unit with the improbably hilarious name of Vikkkings. (Q: What's the worst kind of Viking?) This c20 came out on Knife in the Toaster in 2005 in a numbered edition of just 24 copies.

Knife in the Toaster, I am proud to say, is a Canadian label from St. John's, Newfoundland & Labrador. It started in 2001 and is apparently still going strong! They've released new (and still available) tapes by Fossils, Filthy Turd, Kommissar Hjuler, Sleeping Police, many others, and they even have a Bandcamp page. Support them!
