M2 “At Land’s Edge” LP Edition of 300 OUT OF PRINT! BANDCAMP! M2 is an East Coast-based duo comprised of two of the legendary Miller brothers, namely Roger and Ben. They have previously appeared together in such bizarrely protean ensembles as Sproton Layer and Destroy All Monsters, but they are probably best known for their work in autonomous formulations. Ben, most recently with the Glenn Branca Ensemble, Roger with Mission of Burma (and all who sail with them). The music on M2’s debut LP, however, is far from any of the rock-related moves with which they’ve associated in the past. Both have serious bonafides in experimental/improvised sound, of course, but these take a new leap with At Land’s Edge. Roger… Read more »
Body/Gate/Head “Glare Luring Yo” LP Edition of 300 OUT OF PRINT! BANDCAMP! In the spring of 2011, Michael “Powderfinger” Morley was in the U.S. for a short visit. There had been some talk of doing a Gate show or two, but when he visited Western Mass, we decided to put use to his collaborative talents. He played one night at the Yod space in Florence with Kim Gordon and Bill Nace, then at Feeding Tube with Spencer Yeh and Meg Clixby. Both sets provided jumbo pleasure, and Michael managed to record the Yod set for our presentation to you. Kim and Bill were at the beginning of their duo explorations at this point. Can’t even remember if they’d started using… Read more »
Edition of 700 with 2nd record of material not on original 1979 release. OUT OF PRINT! Splendid, expanded reissue of this monster album, which most people know from its placement on the NWW List. Stapleton even went so far as to name a track (“Fashioned to a Device Behind a Tree”) after a mis-hearing of one of Flee Past’s’ many memorable lines. The music has its roots in Hampshire College’s Electronic Music Studio in the early 1970s. While taking a class on Electronic Composition, Robert Carey was smitten by the potentialities lurking inside piles of reel-to-reel tape. Presented with a stack of such stuff, mostly recorded off of television, he began an epic stumble into the universe of musique concret…. Read more »
Gary Wilson “Lisa Wants TO Talk To You” LP Edition of 500 OUT OF PRINT! Vinyl actualization of a Gary Wilson originally released as a CD in 2008. The second of Feeding Tube’s Wilson retrievals (following last year’s Forgotten Lovers), we consider this the most solid of Gary’s post-revival albums. While it goes in a slightly different musical direction than the deranged porn-lounge inventions of You Think You Really Know Me (the classic ’77 LP, heisted in toto by Beck during his Odelay phase), the naif-ache of the lyrics and the music’s laid-back bowling-alley-funk-thrust reveal unending vistas of pure pleasure. Wilson’s vision and performance approach are absolutely personal and shockingly naked. Like other true outsider artists (from the Shaggs to… Read more »
LP Edition of 100. Numbered. Out Of Print! Zach Phillips, a Souther Vermonter with an intricate and idiosyncratic world of private melodic symbology. His Horse Boys project has produced two playful and mysterious piano tapes and a repertoire of lovely songs. Nals Goring, finds him taking a microscopic scalpel to numerous cassettes in a fever dream of fairy tale hallucinations. NO SOUND is Ted Lee. Recored Live to GAY KK film at Pleasant St. Movie Theater in Northampton, MA on 4.1.09.
Editon of 250 Absolutely bizarre in their focused simplicity, Greg & Ted make music out of thin air. “Maybe funded by institute in which they reside? Or perhaps just plain serious art? Musique brut that’s what it is. Actually I enjoyed the total weirdness of it.” – – Vital Weekly 180 Gram LP Picture Disc OUT OF PRINT!
The first No Sound album, unearthed from the attic.
74 One minute cassettes. Each CD comes attached to an improbable piece of refuse.
LP Edition of 500, Numbered DOWN TO THE LAST BOX! This record is the ultimate collection of the eclectic musical forms that ZEBU! embodies. 17 tracks feature the wide reaching catalog of original tunes from the band recorded live in Ted Lee’s attic in Providence RI. Vocals in the shower, Ted in the bath, Steve in the sink and Eugene and Brook in the basement make this album an instant classic. Stephen “Stegro” Surrett fills out the bottom end and hammers home the riffs. If you are looking for a bunch of freaking rock songs, this album’s for you! Also available on LP. “Boudoir languor, noise-rock snarl, twiddled-knob cacophany, anemically loopy indie slop, and narcoleptic country rawk hoe-downs nestled sweetly… Read more »
ZEBU!’s first attempt at the great studio album of all time is truly a classic of the Feeding Tube canon. Featuring some of the most lasting songs of the ZEBU! repertory, each song is a crazy blueprint of the band in its embryonic stages. Produced by Jonathan Granoff and recorded by Nathan Rosborough in a basement in RI, Steve plays banjo, tracks are written on the spot, and genius occurs. Ted says “What? It’s freakin in a gold bag!”
