World Domination “Solar System Domination 2012” LP Edition of 220 OUT OF PRINT! Live 9.12.13 Live 4.6.13 Anthony Pasquarosa is one of era’s most mutable performers. His first solo LP, recorded under the soubriquet Crystalline Roses, is an ingenious post-volk blend of acoustic feverings. Bur he has been equally active as a member of the hardcore trio Aerosols, the post-form fuck-duo SQRM, and Josh Burketts’ trad-folk unit, Frozen Corn. A regular customer at the store, Tony walked in with this demo one day back in 2013, and we were immediately smitten. His sonic vision included weird science fiction and a thug brevity worthy of Mick Farren’s Deviants or Michael Moorcock’s Deep Fix. The music was brutal space metal and the… Read more »
Edition of 300 OUT OF PRINT! The tradition of Christmas albums is at best a mixed bag. Naturally, this means there have been a decent number of fine disks releases in the genre, but they are few and far between. Blowfly’s Christmas Party, Bob Dylan’s Christmas in the Heart and the Poison Idea/Ray & Glover Single at Christmas are obvious gems. But there are far more losers than winners hiding in the stacks of any store’s Xmas section. Thankfully, Vermont’s Happy Jawbone Family Band have decided to make their “Santa play” this year, and the results will make any Noel a hell of a lot more Joyeux. The album plays like one of Eddie Gorodetsky’s legendary Christmas mixes, splicing together… Read more »
LP Edition of 200 OUT OF PRINT! We Love You (represented here by Dave Gross on sax and Polly Hanson on percussion) turns the all-but-lost art of alto-spitting and skin-scraping spitting into an aural adventure that is both fun and palatable for the whole family. Duck That! is made up of Angela Sawyer (Weirdo Records, Preggy Peggy, Exusamwa, etc…) on duck calls and two ace hornsmen — Josh Jefferson and Steve Norton. Recorded July 24, 2009 at Feeding Tube Records, Easthampton MA. Mastered at New Alliance East, Cambridge MA.
LP Edition of 100 / Booklet Liner notes by Lisa Crystal Carver & Brett Robinson Brett asked Lisa to perform at his birthday party because he is a fan of all things Suckdog and Rollerderby. She agreed, and taught a bunch of people how to paint the soul of a stranger. She also painted a portrait of Brett for him since it was his birthday, which you can see on the back cover of this LP. Also for the party, Lauri made really awesome stickers that said “Fuck Brett (in a mean way)” and “Fuck Brett (in a nice way)” on them. Not only is Lisa proudly wearing her stickers and showing some tasteful cleavage on the cover of this LP,… Read more »
LP Edition of 500 A Feeding Tube Records & Mystra Records Co – Release Like all of the greatest live “festival” records – Woodstock II (Cotillion ’71), Mar y Sol (Atco ’72) & 1968 Memphis Country Blues Festival (Blue Horizon ’69) – Mystery Triangle is an especially exceptional souvenir for those people who were there when it happened. But unlike dud compilatons, Mystery Triangle provides a truly fine sonic gush for even those of us who were too confused (or scared) to “make” the actual “scene”. In November 2011, a goddamn magnificent display of talent went down at Joshua Burkett’s Mystery Train store in Amherst, MA. And thankfully, Edward “Ted” Lee, the whirling dervish of Feeding Tube, was there to… Read more »
LP Edition of 200 While we were playing the test pressing of this album, the UPS guy came in with a package. He looked at the speaker and said, “Sounds like that baby’s busted, champ.” Chris and I looked at each other and jumped him, popping his eyes out of his head and dragging him into the backroom to drain his blood amidst the backstock. Damaged III is that kind of album. Back when I lived at the Believers House in Easthampton, Grey Skull Manor was just downstairs and we would often feel the evil emanations seeping through the floorboards. Of course, this was long before the trio hung up their horned hats and went straight – George Myers becoming… Read more »
Omnivore “Omnivore” LP Edition of 500 Bandcamp – Hidden Gem ITUNES! First album by Glenna van Nostrand, a Providence Rhode Island-based performance artist obsessed with archaic telecommunication hardware. Using solo vocals run through an old telephone, amplified by a variety of radios, her work creates its own rhythms through hypnotic layering, repetition and the imperfections built into her chosen delivery system. Alternately ethereal and cracked, her performance takes simple kernels of thought and speech, creating mystifying vistas of otherness that hint at the eternal now. The only specific musical accompaniment comes from her use of a telephone’s touch pad as a keyboard, but the rich weirdness of her compositions is consistent and dazzling. The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered… Read more »
LP Edition of 500 OUT OF PRINT! VICE : Nights Off Week Two: Drone, Eastern Mysticism, and Modern No Wave By Steve Lowenthal Superstar live drone fiesta time here, my friends. Recorded in Olso, during the Auroura Borealic night of January, 2010, this beauty thrums with a majesty-vibe arising deep from within the earth. Each of the participants has been horn-blown around the globe for mastery of individual string/machine attack. C. Spencer Yeh’s violin arcs have powered a million strange improv scenes. Jon Wesseltoft is clearly the king of Norwegian harmonium dudes. Okkyung Lee is a Korean polymath re: formal cello innovations, but her handling of rainbow parallelograms is unequalled regardless of national borders. And Anla Courtis has taken the Argentinian… Read more »
LP Edition of 100. Numbered. Fresh off their triumphant escalation of white privilege into a distinct artistic medium on “The Cleansing Power of Fruit,” Egg, Eggs returns with a newfound appreciation for the emptiness of a merely formal conception of time. Culled from a messy assortment of hastily assembled cassette releases, “Make Youself Egg, Eggs” folds distraction and regret into a fertile meringue, rich with concepts that somehow never seem quite able to achieve full viability. “Where do they find these pathetic little monsters?” one might ask, and where can I get one of my very own? There are too many answers to choose just one: vaginas are bountifully abundant (everyone knows that) but the question remains, “What is behind… Read more »
