S.N.O.T. – Slaughterhouse 7″ (1986 KML Records)

Back when I was doing my fanzine (Spontaneous Combustion) there was a little label called KML Records that started sending me records to review. The label was run by one of the guy in Maggot Sandwich, and of course I was sent their records to review, along with this one.

S.N.O.T. stands for Slime from the Nose Of Texas. They were from Texas yet were on this Florida label. I imagine the guys in Maggot Sandwich must have played a show with them and became friends with them or something. S.N.O.T. only put out this one single, which was a pretty good hardcore record that came out at a time that a lot of hardcore bands were starting down the path of metal (which in most cases was the same road as the path of suck). After this single, they vanished, never to release another record again. This single came on both blue and black vinyl. I think somewhere I still have a sticker with the sleeve art on it too.

I have no idea what happened to them or what they are doing now. As always if you were in the band, or have any information, please get in touch. Unfortunately I lost touch with the KML fellow a million years ago so I can’t get in touch for any stories.

  • geez, they were one of my favorite bands to play at the Twilite Room, I remember selling T-shirts for them at a show

  • i remember this band from when i lived in Houston. I saw them a few times (though at that time in my life, I’d have a hard time recalling what I really saw). I think they moved to FLA. and I never saw them again. Why FLA I always wondered? Can i get a whole copy of this thing?

  • craig, i rememeber those days in houston(barely)when snot played at axiom and at a bunch of skate competitions back in the day…..would be nice to get hold of this whole album.

  • well, we never moved to fla. and we did record some other stuff though kml took off with all of our recordings. we did do another thing with kml called “war between the states” and i only got one copy. anyway it is realy cool when i come across things like this. i will keep in touch and can be reached at [email protected]..thanks for the coment.

  • I am trying to find Mike Graham AKA Vik Kaos from Maggot Sandwich. He is an old friend of mine from over 20 years ago. I believe he is now living in the Ft. Walton area of Florida if any one can help I would appreciate it!

  • S.N.O.T. I remember back around 1986 I was able to hang out with these guys as well as see them live! What a kick ass show!One of my favorite Houston bands. I am pretty sure their drummer ended up joining Sick Mentality who was fronted by J.J. formerly of the Offenders from Austin, another brilliant Texas group.

  • I’ve got a copy of that KML video with Snot, Maggot Sandwhich & Workin Muthas. Awesome video in it’s day.

    I’d love to get permission to show it on the website some day. Great piece of history.

    I saw Maggot Sandwich and a few other KML bands when I lived in Pensacola. Apparently, the lead guy formed a right-wing band and label called Immaculate Deception. You can still buy some of the old KML records for completely ridiculous prices.

    I saw that video. It was decent for its day.

  • This is Vik Kaos of Maggot Sandwich and Immaculate Deception. ID is not a right wing band, we are sarcastic and some people are too stupid to understand sarcasm. Im an anarchist so dumb shits on the left call me right wing and dumb shits on the right call me left wing. I dont like or respect democrats or republicans, they are both idiots. Hello to SNOT and my old friend Abdul Malik Ali.
