Edition of 500 Includes Digital Download and Insert OUT OF PRINT! Itunes! The second volume of live Mars recordings from Feeding Tube. This one was recorded at the band’s penultimate show, August 4 1978, with spectral help from Rudolph Grey on the side-long take of “NN End”. The quartet is at the full height of their power here, manipulating the language of tongue explosions both instrumentally and vocally. Recorded by Brian Eno, the sound is an advance from the galacto-fidelity of the Artists Space LP, and the performance is a staggering example of Mars in their final phase. This is a stunning example of the No Wave impulse in its most experimental and personal guise. The package… Read more »
Mars “Live At Artists Space” LP Edition of 500 OUT OF PRINT! ITUNES! In May of 1978 there was a five night music festival at Artists Space on Hudson Street in Tribeca. Although almost no one cared at the time, the event has since entered the halls of legend, as one of the signal events in the history of the No Wave era – one that managed to include both the Lower East Side bands and those fronted by their Western contemporaries. On the final night of the festival the two bands playing were Mars and Teenage Jesus and the Jerks. What we are presenting to you today are both sets by Mars – the most mysterious, and bizarrely-styled… Read more »
OUT OF PRINT! The Hotel Double Tragedy is constantly burning. You will be too with these new hits from the family! Simply plug all the instruments and vocals into one ancient jangle. That’s right! “You deserve to be the hugest group in the world! You deserve magical pop weirdness in about 10 seconds flat.” This could easily have been advertised in this way. Or even as a reissue of the newly discovered missing link between ball lightning and the Vaselines, but we have decided to be honest with you. Happy Jawbone is a collection of depressing people leading boring lives and looking good while they do it. Sounds like our favorite Feeding Tube release thus far! Also available on LP…. Read more »

Russell (Frothy Shakes), Tim Sheldon (Fat Worm of Error), Ted Lee (Zebu!), Andy Crespo (Barn Owl), Brett Robinson (Radioactive Prostitute) and Jack Callahan. Contains the previously released “Couchie Poochie” cassingle and over an hour of new material. Shattered mongoloid vocals, buzzing axes, two bassists, two drummers. Total Hell!
Here is what Spencer Grady had to say in Record Collector magazine. We are still trying to figure out what he meant…”Wow, full on mento decapitation funneled into a hypnagogic stadium epic courtesy of David Crosby. Meanwhile, broken by a nasty bout of Antillies fever, Columbus’ crew get homesick and drop some Royal Trux into the sun-soaked frazzle, as Feeding Tube’s Ted Lee and associates introduce Sun Araw to Arawakan. Think Bryan Brown in Bermudas drunkenly mixing metaphors on the beach as the eternal slackness gently cradels the crux of the Carribbean”.
Dashpi “Don’t Give Up The Ship” 7″ / Fold Out Poster Edition of 500 “Yah, yah, yah, yah. Don’t give up the ship”. These are some seriously weird bedroom reggae jams, made on a dare nearly a decade ago. Pitch-shifted vocals, primitive music and surreal lyrics regarding “the aqua hole” and “the flaming room”. The artist, who prefers to remain anonymous, has made a number of amazing archival recordings since this one was laid to tape in the early part of the century, but none of them are as focused as this one here. Beautiful silk screened art on thick paper, folded in four, full color labels and one of the thickest 7″s you’ve ever held await you.
From the eclectic slop-rock gurus ZEBU! comes the new pop sensation Bloody Lips 7″. Vinyl, 45′ speed high quality recorded on 2″ tape. These four rock songs bring the delight of Steve D’Agostino and Ted Lee to the feeding tube stage once again. No filler, No Nonsense, No Digitizing, All Analog Live Mastery. This album is an perfect example of why ZEBU!, eight years in, has really only just begun their mission to craft records that capture what rock and roll truly should be.
LP Edition of 500 Wizard Prison is a Seattle-based trio comprised of Scott Colburn (producer/engineer/frequent collaborator of the Sun City Girls, decade long member of Climax Golden Twins and audio genius for Sublime Frequencies), John Vallier (an early member of CGT) and Ben McAlister (of the Degenerate Art Ensemble). Wizard Prison’s music flirts with stoner metal riffery, kosmiche electronics and field recordings, usually at the same time. An intellectual might say their sound is in a state of constant “becoming.” Chiming, churning guitar/bass/drums give way to pulsating synths and pitch-shifted foreign voices chanting to open the door to an alternate dimension. Each side long suite supposdly illustrates the details of the cracked narrative detailed on the insert, but it mostly… Read more »
Edition of 100 Mike Barrett has been making uncompromisingly bleak noise music in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts for over a decade. Until now, his releases have come out in ultra-limited, hand assembled runs. Well, I guess nothing has changed really, except for the CD-Rs and cassettes of the past have been replaced with this beautiful slab of vinyl. Each of the one 100 covers was painted by hand, either by Barrett himself or his associate Chris Blair. The music on this LP is all previously unreleased material recorded in the last few years, with the help of Blair and Brett Robinson. The world of Belltone Suicide is dark and feedback drenched and is sure to appeal convicts, taxidermists… Read more »
