Throat on Facebook

We finally decided to get our neanderthal asses out of the Pleistocene ages, did the unthinkable and joined what you youngsters call 'Facebook':

We'll post news, updates and all sorts of shit, but you'll find all the same information on this blog as well, so you can decide for yourself what you want to do with this information.

I Wanna Rock You, Baby reviews Manhole

Not quite sure what to make of this, but a Hungarian blog named I Wanna Rock You, Baby... did a little review/write-up of the "Manhole" LP:

The ever-so-reliable Google Translate comes up with such translation-ary gems as "I'm almost positive that you are as sutyerákok, you do not fuck you" and "a level gányadék a cunt a cunt of a miracle that your body can not stand the naked blade cut my fucking year assessment list". That can't be negative, can it!?!?

Website tweakery

Minor tweaking to the Throat website: you can now stream all releases on the discography page and you can no longer pleasure yourself to our photo gallery. In the future all live photos etc. can be found in the blog.

Cheers Alex!

Don't forget the Fun/Magneto/Throat gig at Saikku, Pori in a couple of weeks!

Here's the Facebook event:

Manhole available for streaming + digital downloads

So you don't like to listen to music on vinyl like grown men do?

You probably have a really good excuse for it too?

"I like to listen to music when I'm jogging" or "It's easy because I can have all the music I need with me everywhere I go."

Fuck you.

Now go to Throat's Bandcamp page where you can stream or purchase a digital download of "Manhole":
