In 2008, a band from Tacoma, WA released an unbelievable 7" and never released anything after. Bookburner are described as powerviolence, but labeling them as crusty hardcore isn't too far off either. This 7" is a quick listen, so play it more than once. Good, good shit.

  1. Thank you so much for the kind words!!! I'm the vocalist for BB. We actually recorded a very poor sounding cover of the Dazzling Killmen song "Reactor". That too never saw the light of day. It was initially going to be released as a 3" CD with on of the pressings of the 7", unfortunately never happened. I'm in the process of writing a full-length for BB right now, I know it's long overdue and probably a moot point to do so, but I want to properly bury the band with one more record. We still play shows, it's been 3 years since our last show, but we occasionally play shows still.

    Between the release of this record and one tour we did along the West Coast, I was involved in a band with some folks from Iron Lung and Walls/Cold Sweat called Society Nurse, I did one EP with them in 2010 and had quit the band later that year. I also have collaborated with PHT(PigHeartTransplant) over the years which is the brainchild of Jon Kortland from Iron Lung/Gob, I'm on two releases as far as I know.

    Speaking of Bookburner, the guitar player and I are currently in a band called Exit Bag, we recorded 12 songs in September of last year at Captains Tripp's High Command Studio in Olympia, WA. That band is a blackened hardcore punk band ala Ildjarn, Bone Awl, Rudimentary Peni with some elements of grind in there. Those songs should be released sometime this year.

    I feel really blessed that people have shown so much appreciation for Bookburner. I wish we could have gotten our shit together and were more of a functioning unit, the sad fact of the matter is that we were a highly dysfunctional band and over the course of our existence only played 16 shows and recorded those handful of songs. Though it's my hope that we'll get the full-length recorded and released by the end of the year or early next year and do one more tour then finally bury the band properly,

    If you have any questions regarding the band, feel free to contact me!!! Thanks again for posting up the record!
