THERE´S NOTHING WRONG WITH YOUR SPEAKERS - IT´S ONLY MINCECORE FROM HELLGIUM!
AGATHOCLES was founded in 1985 and released countless records so far. So, maybe for some people this output doesn´t have any meaning at all because it is just another AGx record in their eyes. We are aware that! Nevertheless, we have to release this noise! Respect and support to Agathocles, because “grind is protest”!
For me (Andy) this is a record to fulfill an approx. 25 years old dream. I´m a huge fan of AG noise since I was a teenager. I collected all their records… ok, at least I tried it during the first years… later I had to give up because of lack of money… Thanks to Jan AG for trusting in Animate Records and giving us the possibility to release this record. Thank you, brother! This record has a special meaning to Agathocles as well: In August 2015 Jan AG contacted us regarding a release to say thanks to all the people who´ve been so helpful, caring and supportive when the band played in Toronto 2015. Agathocles had much trouble with the US government there. You can read the full story at the liner notes written by Jan AG.
"Mincing through the maples" contains some great raw Agathocles tracks that were recorded live on Wednesday 19th August 2015 at the "Coalition" club in Toronto, Canada. Many of the favorite Agathocles songs are in the setlist and the sound captures all the spirit of this gig
