Gross Net are duo Philip Quinn (Girls Names) and Christian Donaghy (Autumns) from Northern Ireland, they serve up industrial, noisy post-punk and this 3 track debut EP on cassette announces their arrival in menacing style.

In just 11 minutes distorted guitars, ambient synths and reverby vocals lay the foundations for lyrical themes of living through the recession and elitism in the arts channelling influences such as Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, and Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft.

Recorded in the space of one day, here at AFB we jumped at the chance to bring this recording to light. Limited to 100 tapes in red coral shells.
