2 Minuta Dreka – Let’s Start A Porn In The Name Of Gore (2006)

An instant porngrind classic. 2006’s debut from Italian noisecore-cum-grinders 2 Minuta Dreka really made it’s mark in a time where pure groovy grind had gone a bit stagnant (GUT’s Cumback, anyone?). For me it holds the perfect production; that excellent fine line between studio quality and rehearsal room feel. I guess it is the very organic drum sound (count-ins and all) that helps keep this record’s garage vibe locked down. Let’s Start A Porn… was released on the seemingly now defunct (?) American label Half-Life Records. I believe also that the record is out of print. Perhaps it should be re-released on vinyl!

There are a few rather long songs here, but that’s cool because they are all fairly groovy and don’t get boring at all. The samples are just priceless, and if you go on the official 2 Minuta Dreka website, vocalist Brandy has been kind enough to list what films they are all from. Mixed in with the longer tracks are a plethora of silly grindcore 1-seconders and a couple of cover songs from the likes of GUT, Meat Shits and Fear of God. It is clear where this band gained their influences!

It’s hard to believe it’s been 7 fucking years since this album came out! I for one literally cannot wait for a new 2 Minuta Dreka record. Blllllllerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhhh.
