Originally released on cassette on Riot Season-s sister label Swap Meat. -Sun Rot- was recorded to tape and was very lo/fi in nature. Riot Season rescued the original tapes and have tweaked them for vinyl ever so slightly, but it very much remains the lo/fi classic it once was.
The first slab in a possible split series titled -In Search Of Highs-. Both the bands here are instrumental trios. BLOWN OUT *UK( and COMACOZER *Australia( are interlinked by history and their shared love of sonic psych explorations and both are here for Phase 1 of this cosmic experience. Blown Out deliver three relatively short *for them( blasts, channelling their inner Stooges&Marble Sheep coming on like grand funk space lords. Three tracks of groove sonics and head changes. Comacozer go the opposite route and slide in with another of their trademark epic trips, that sucks everything around it into it-s own cosmic g... + INFO
-Mo / The Demon- was recorded at Leeds College of Music between November 2017 and February 2018. The basis of the album was to record an imaginary soundtrack to the Shaw Brothers bat shit psychedicrazy Kung Fu horror -The Boxer-s Omen- aka -MO- or -Demon-. The story is an everyday one.

HB Formed because the other band they do (Hey Colossus) rehearse in London and they wanted a band they didn-t need to travel the width of the country to jam with. This nine song 40 minute record lyrically covers the downtrodden, shaking them with lysergically gloopy riffs of both the upbeat and downbeat nature. it is perfectly suited for 30 people in a bar having a nigh... + INFO
Happy Birthday' was Hey Colossus's 4th album, and it was originally released by Riot Season back in 2008 on CD only. The album marked the beginning of chapter two for the band, it was the first for Riot Season, the first where the wings were spread and the band took flight. Total noise rock, 100% out there sounds. The band was a 5 piece at the time and had just completed a tour of Spain that was riddled with ups and downs but mainly full of future talk.
