Lachlan has got a shit load of stuff going on at the moment - all of it good.
Do yourself a favour and check these items out.
Hey there progpals, dronebloods and grindchaps alike,
We've been really, really freaking busy here at Art As Catharsis, so I just wanted to share with you some of the cool stuff that's been going on -- as well as a whole heap of awesome (and free!) Australian music.
Battle Pope 'Rapture Cominatchya' music video
Check out the new single from Battle Pope: the dick-slinging, soul-winning, heathen-killing Paladins of pussy and party.
These guys describe their sound like: "Little Richard wildly fucking Blood Duster, Captain Cleanoff and Elvis at a hedonist coke orgy". Serious party music.

Battle Pope vs. Jesus Christ Posse 12" LP
Two awesome Sydney bands go head to head on this incredibly sexy LP. Spin a few tracks and pre-order yours today.
Battle Pope blending elements of sludge, swing, rock, grind and doom. Jesus Christ Posseare the saviours of Sydney City Hardcore. Their music recalls early 90’s hardcore punk rock, with an aggressive edge forged through religious purity, strict abstinence and straight-edge lifestyle.
