about

At the beginning of 2003, immediately following Epsilon's successful 2002 extol.nihil 2x12", there came a temporary lull at Bloody Fist. A number of the original BF artists by this time had lost interest and moved onto other things in life, or moved out of Newcastle altogether in order to pursue real and actual careers elsewhere. While there was still a small amount of new BF-related material being produced at this time, there was a substantial cache of material which had already accumulated and had been languishing on various hard drives since the late 90s. This cache was regularly utilised for blasting out at the Hunter On Hunter shows, while some of it still awaited potential release on vinyl. Fritz Cardozo (Guyver) had recently written a doomcore-inspired track 'Divide & Conquer' which was on high rotation at the BF office. It was decided that FIST29 would be a 12" featuring this as the title track, alongside some (as yet unreleased on wax) Guyver material that had been knocking around since 1998 visiting drum'n bass, doomcore, industrial and speedcore. All this material was a product of many late nights in front of ft2, combined with influence from artists and labels such as PCP (Acardipane), Nasenbluten, Syndicate, Somatic responses, Lasse Steen, Position Chrome and Kraftwerk. Even though the production remained rough on FIST29, it still came across sharper and a little more accomplished than Guyver's previous 12" outing back in 1997/98 - Death 2 Darkness EP (FIST14) - and the record also neatly bridged a gap between some of the comparatively newer syles of BF material featured on the preceding FIST28 and the soon to come FIST30.

released May 15, 2003

The 12" was recorded to DAT early 2003 at Fritz's place in the Newcastle suburb of Lambton, and sold slowly through its one and only pressing once it hit the various distributors in May 2003. FIST29 was never repressed but nonetheless remains a succinct retrospective of Guyver material spreading across a 4 year span.
