A fast and dirty kind of hardcore punk that has as much to do with Minor Threat as it does with Paint It Black.
Too punk for hardcore. Too hardcore for punk. Short, fast and hostile noise soundtracks yelled tirades on genocide, the Tories and death.
Throwing Stuff was formed when all best decisions are made – in the early hours of a Manchester house party. Booking their first gig in March 2011, before their first practice, Throwing Stuff’s sound swiftly developed into fast, no-frills hardcore punk.
After drunkenly muddling their way through their first show, they began playing across the north of England, earning a reputation for their intense, inebriated and erratic live performances. It took until 2017 for the band to get their shit together and record 15 songs for their debut Fit, Fine and Well, which encapsulated their energy but didn’t shy away from serious issues such as mental health, death and war crimes.
They took the record on tour with Australian punks The Bennies and Clowns, as well as label mates Incisions, before vocalist Ben moved to south-east Asia. Throwing Stuff slowed down, but they didn’t stop. Without letting a continental expanse hold them back, they are working on new material for their follow-up record.
