Gary Marchant

Gary Marchant were a grind band named after a science teacher. Although they were only around for a relatively short space of time, they played regularly in the Sunderland area and occasionally in Newcastle. At one point they supported Napalm Death. They have also played about 4 farewell gigs (so far), several months apart. Their most recent farewell gig was in August 2011 with Burial and Crabsu.

Initially I was asked to do a logo for them, but I eventually invited them to play the aforementioned gig and also decided to re-release their only recording, Pilldust Paradox EP along with T-shirts and patches.

The original logo was drawn with black ink and a wooden kebab skewer. It was an absolute nightmare to turn it into a stencil...

However, it was totally worth it for the spray-painted final product. These are black 3" CD-Rs which have a white printable surface, perfect for black spray paint. The covers are black card sprayed white giving a negative version of the usual logo.

Handwriting all the tracklistings was another pain in the arse. I'm glad it was limited to 30 copies. There are currently only about 4 copies left, but plenty of shirts and patches. Order here.

Inverted Grim-Mill Recordings is a bedroom micro-label set up for the purpose of releasing extreme music invented in tour vans, pubs, venues and whenever brain stimulants are abound.

Any and all releases from this label will be hand-made and limited in numbers. There will also be stuff like shirts and patches available.

There will be live events organised under this banner, both for bands on the label and for friends in "serious" bands.
