Nasenbluten were a Newcastle, Australia recording and performance group, who pioneered hardcore techno, gabber, amigacore and cheapcore music. The group was founded in the early 1990s by Mark Newlands, Aaron Lubinski and David Melo. Nasenbluten take their name from the German word for nosebleed, a reference to the phrase "nosebleed techno" that was then used to describe the harder and faster variants of the genre.
Nasenbluten produced music on Amiga personal computers using tracker software in the MOD format. They self-released a number of cassettes on their "Dead Girl" vanity label at the time they first started playing house parties in Newcastle. Following from the relatively mediocre success of Dead Girl cassettes, they were signed to seminal hard techno label Industrial Strength Records at the time Mark Newlands created Bloody Fist Records. Shortly after their debut LP, a sampler for Bloody Fist was released by Industrial Strength featuring two tracks from Nasenbluten.
Nasenbluten inspired a large number of local musicians, leading to a thriving hardcore techno scene in Newcastle. The bands' emphasis on breakbeats, ironic audio samples and gangster rap samples became influential in the hardcore scene, most prominently with Australian artists signed to the Bloody Fist imprint. Due to their influence and the relatively small numbers of records that were pressed for earlier releases (including numerous self distributed cassettes), they have become popular with collectors in recent years.
In 1996 Nasenbluten made the limited edition single "Anna Wood" on vinyl through the Dead Girl label, as a commentary on the moral panic in the press surrounding rave parties after the death of Australian schoolgirl Anna Wood. Her ecstasy-related death brought about a hardline approach to rave and dance parties in Australia. The record was never commercially available and was only distributed by the band itself who released 50 vinyl records, each individually numbered. They featured a picture of the girl with the phrase "I'm having the best night of my life!" and a picture of Dutch DJ Paul Elstak on the B side with the words "I wanna see the rainbow high in the sky", a reference to the happy hardcore scene and its links to ecstasy.
