After the storming release of their debut, untitled, full-length in 2001, GRONIBARD got offered plenty of new releases, among which a split with GOREROTTED and GRUESOME STUFF RELISH, a split with legendary EXIT-13 and an acoustic EP in the vein of what ANAL CUNT did and so they quickly entered the studio in 2002 and recorded new original material alongside silly covers and even more silly acoustic versions.
The first split got released as “Split Your Guts, vol.1” (Deepsend Records) but mastered a way the band disliked. The second never came out because the only (then instrumental) studio tapes got lost by EXIT-13 during a car crash. The third got cancelled altogether. This is how the original 2002 “Satanic Tuning Club” EP (Bones Brigade Records) came together: half the unreleased split with EXIT-13, half the acoustic EP.
In 2012, GRONIBARD decided to celebrate the tenth anniversary of this recording session teaming with KAOTOXIN Records for a 300 hand-numbered copies limited edition vinyl version, “Satanic Tuning Club Turbo!” (now soldout), featuring not only the whole of the session, but also a selection of greatly sounding live tracks from this very same era and even a previously unreleased track, with a revisited artwork by original artist and ex-GRONIBARD member Natachatte and carefully remastered for vinyl by the band themselves.
Already a cult piece of the Goregrind history!
