Medical Malfunctions Records double post

Liquidised / Smegmacyst / Hypoprothrombinemia / Enterorrhagia
Amebic Meningoencephalitis Due to Naegleria Fowleri (MMR 133)
Biodegradable Shitscum / Hyperbilirubenemia / Pulmonary Lymphangioleiomatosis Phlegmtuberculosis / Ascaris Lumbricoides (MMR 143 / co-release with Organopexic Gorenoise)

These two splits don't have any projects in common between them, so I suppose posting them together just because they were released by the same label is a pretty arbitrary choice, but whatever. It gives me a chance to talk about how I'm sad that Medical Malfunctions Records is no more. I guess the end was announced around the end of last year, but I only found out two or three months ago, I think. The thing that makes it especially disappointing for me is that I'd been meaning to order from them for for quite a while and never did get around to it. I guess that's just what you get when you sleep on stuff. Learn from my mistakes and don't repeat them.
Anyway, these splits are both gorenoise as fuck and each features four bands. It seems like the projects on MMR 143 are all less well known than the ones on MMR 133, but both splits feature several prominent musicians. We have Carlos Dávila aka Shitter (Liquidised, Smegmacyst, Ascaris Lumbricoides), Sandip (Hypoprothrombinemia and Pulmonary...), Jason and Matt from Deep Fried Embryo/Vomiting Shit/MMR itself (who play in Hyperbilirubenemia on this split), and of course Enterorrhagia is Bobby Maggard. I think Biodegradable Shitscum might be Bobby's project as well, but I'm not sure about that.

tbh it really bothers me that the cover of the Amebic Meningoencephalitis split doesn't show the project logos in the same order as they play on the disc
