Dredd Foole and the Din - Ghost Rider / Frankie Teardrop ( / )

Single Sided 12″ Edition of 200/Numbered. OUT OF PRINT!  Back in the early part of this century, Hadley MA was one center of sub-underground culture that got less cred than other spots in the Valley, largely because the prime live venue there, Hangar One, got shuttered in the ’80s. A strip of malls and chain restaurants, Hadley seemed an unlikely spot for interesting aktions. Still, Chris Corsano lived and rehearsed in a crappy little house there for a while, and it was also the site of the first Apostasy Records house. And how many towns can say that? Anyway, Halloween 2002 rolls along and someone gets the bright idea to do an evening of underground cover bands at the Hadley Pub… Read more »

Palberta - Hot On The Beach ( / )

LP Edition of 360. Remixed, remade, remodeled vinylization of Palberta’s JMC Aggregate cassette of 2016. Hot on the Beach is another great leap sideways by this glorious post-tongue trio. The four brutarian tracks on the a-side are shards of songs reductive enough to have earned their “no wave” deal of approval without breaking a sweat. But as usual, Anina Lily and Nina manage to make this ug-thrust co-exist with a whacked-out feel more in line with late ’70s UK scribblers like the Raincoats or Big in Japan. Really fine. On the second side they do a single extended track called “Prolly for the Best” that sounds something like a dance 12” released by 99 Records, recorded anonymously and very drunkenly… Read more »

Curse Purse - Curse Purse with Gary Panter ( / )

12″ Tour Edition of 50. Numbered. Out Of Print. Because their debut 12” was such a marvel, Curse Purse decided revisit the format, and this time they hauled along guitarist Gary Panter for a ride in the clown car. For those who have never experienced them, Curse Purse (the basic) is a trio with Olivia Kennett on suqeedles and voice, Matt Robidoux on guitar and voice, and “Ted” Lee on drum, guitar and voice. To them, form is nothing but an obstacle to be overcome and parodied. And though he has proven himself to be a thoughtful and cunning string agent in most settings, it appears these three scalawags have subverted the approach of Mr. Panter as well. The sound… Read more »

Miaux - Above The High Rays ( / / )

12″ (Single Sided / Etching by Dennis Tyfus!) Edition of 350  (Artwork by Dennis Tyfus) SOUNDCLOUD Miaux is the operating handle of Belgium’s Mia Prce. Most of her prior recordings have been issued by Dennis Tyfus’ Ultra Eczema label, but after catching her set at last year’s Bruismelk festival, Feeding Tube had to “have” her new record. Unlike other known works, whereon Miaux is a mistress of elaborate keyboard shenanigans that border on the gothic, Above the High Rays brims with music of a very soundtrackly nature. It mixes Neo-Eastern percussion symbiography with floating swathes of parachute color, all of it presumably birthed from Mia’s hands and keys. It’s easy to imagine a Jodorowksy carnival scene, shot like the opening of… Read more »

(New England) Patriots, Palberta - Special Worship ( / )

Palberta / (New England) Patriots “Special Worship” 12″ 45rpm / Insert / Download / Numbered SECOND PRESSING – CLEAR VINYL – Edition of 100 FIRST PRESSING – OUT OF PRINT! Edition of 250 Released to coincide with a tour shared by these two monsters of the uncharted North, Special Worship is only the second vinyl dab by Boston’s (NE) Pats, and the first wax by the Hudson Valley’s Palberta. The (NE) Pats revel in squealing feedback, raunchy spuzz-riffs and mutable vocals that make me think of a cross between the Cows and some weird Texas just pre-core punk bands whose named I can’t recall. Rough, woozy and powerful, even though the trio sports no bassist, the (NE) Pats (who previously shared… Read more »

Andy Crespo Two Cigarettes Kissing

Andy Crespo - Two Cigarettes Kissing ( / )

Andy Crespo “Two Cigarettes Kissing” 12″ (45rpm) Edition of 200 OUT OF PRINT! Andy Crespo has been the go-to bass players for sub-underground locals since time immemorial. Recording with mysterious free jazz units such as Gross, or the original Barn Owl (the trio with Matt Weston & Chris Cooper), or playing with one the countless live bands he’s been in, Crespo is a commandingly smoky, mysterious and powerful presence. Feeding Tube is tickled pink to present Crespo’s first solo vinyl — two side long excursions of bass generated sounds that’ll roam your interior fields like a cloud of bees searching for nico-nectar. Considering Crespo’s personal collecting policies, it’s crazy that he conjured up such a berserk set of splattered electronics/strings/feedback,… Read more »

Guerilla Toss - Smack The Brick ( / )

Guerilla Toss “Smack The Brick” 12″ (45rpm) with download code Edition of 400 Slight line-up change in GT brings new faces to keyboards and bass, resulting in a rather plumper (and, dare I say, more soulful) bottom, without removing any of the pony-rending upper register dynamism we have all grown to love. This new width also adds a certain slinkiness to a few of the evil cheerleader routines that are part of Kassie Carlson’s magic kit. The band spins out streams of thick repeato-riffery, while Kassie’s vocals exhort everyone to explode. Word on the street is that GT’s new label has big things in store for them. So Smack the Brick is either gonna be veiwed as the end of… Read more »

Curse Purse - Curse Purse ( / )

Curse Purse “Curse Purse” 12″ (Single Sided) Edition of 100 OUT OF PRINT! Curse Purse “Curse Purse” CS Edition of 50 OUT OF PRINT! MESSAGE CP IMPOSE TINY MIX TAPES Ostensibly a record for their recent European/Imapean/Wereallapean Tour, this three song document remains the first tangible evidence of the miracle trio that is Curse Purse (or, as locals call them, “Cuss Puss”). Olivia and Ted from Egg Eggs are joined by Matt (formerly of Speedy Ortiz), and the rumpus they conjure up is estimable. There are semblance of song-form at times, but this is not the bland cut-and-paste-merch-aktion of most combos. CP take the basic outline of a musical event and run with it. The feel of this can be… Read more »

Guerilla Toss - 267 Equalizer

Guerilla Toss - 367 Equalizer ()

12″ (Single Sided) Edition of 300 OUT OF PRINT! 367 Equalizer  Vinylization of a recent Infinity Cat cassette, 367 Equalizer is a one-sided slab of belligerent art damage. The feel of this session is more tempered than that of their wigglesome debut LP, Jeffrey Johnson (as well as their second LP, which shall go nameless). The discordian elements of post-no-wave edge and Brooklyn basement glue party remain, but some of the looser jags have been hauled in and buffed like a fine pair of loafers. This is still definitely the sound of young people, but not in a way that grates on my old man’s sensibilities. One of my favorite prog albums was recorded by Pete Brown’s band, Piblotko, and… Read more »

Bang Bros! - 12/12/12 -

Bang! Bros. - 12/12/12 ( / )

12″ (45rpm) Edition of 300 Co-Release with 100% Breakfast OUT OF PRINT!  Bang! Brothers means many things to many people. Look the phrase up on your interweb, and you will discover many facets of amateur erotica that may have previously escaped your notice. But that is only one of its connotations. In its best sense, Bang! Bros refers to the ridiculously ecstatic duo of Mark Johnson and Arkm Foam, best known for their work with the Whithaus Family and Hunnie Bunnies. Both of the gents have now moved away from Boston — where Bang! Bros were based — but not before the threw dawn and took the challenge to play 12 live shows in 12 towns on 12/12/2012. You might think to… Read more »
