Doom live on Brian Turner's show Tuesday, September 23rd 3-6pm! Starting in 1987 in Birmingham, Doom tore up the British touring circuit and John Peel programs with their pioneering style of anarcho metal and proto-grindcore, swerving into a heavier punk direction upon departure of Mick Harris for Napalm Death. Along with Discharge, few UK heavies have had such a worldwide influence on extreme music as Doom. The kings of crust live on WFMU!
A lovely specimen of WFMU T-shirt has made its way into one of those internet videos making fun of record geeks: watch it here. (Seven Second Delay volunteer Gaby stars in the vid).
