      As I already said, Mega Armageddon Death is by the Electro Hippies. It's on
      their Peel Sessions EP.

      > All this talk of tiny tracks and not yet a mention for the pioneers of
      British Grindcore !
      > Nostalgics like me will fondly recall the 1987 / 1988 era when the prime
      movers in this frequently hilarious micro-scene seemed to be having some
      kind of hell-bent ultra-brevity contest.
      > It all kicked off with "Scum" by Napalm Death, which had about 40 tracks
      on it. Other records, like "Reek Of Putrefaction" by Carcass and "The Only
      Good Punk Is A Dead One" by Electro-Hippies then joined the fray with very
      short songs about decaying body parts and flared trousers respectively.
      > But the peaks of acheivement were (I think) a track by Napalm Death called
      "Mega Armageddon Death" which was released as a 7" by Earache and which
      clocked in at 0:01; and an album by Sore Throat, the title of which I'm
      afraid escapes me, which had no fewer than 100 tracks on one side. To make
      up for it, side two featured just one 20 minute-long magnum opus. It was,
      of course, bloody awful.
