Your Drugs My Money/ Les Aus (Feat. Lydia Lunch and Jacob Anodide)
Your Drugs My Money is an improv collective with members in Los Angeles CA, San Francisco CA, Copenhagen, Greenville NC., and Chicago IL. Recorded, March 2008 in Portland, OR. A week long session yielded 4 tracks; 3 unlike anything executed before by the group. Using tape loops, drums, keys, vocal experimentation, and electronics to create a lofi movement of harmonies and rhythms. These songs have a raw tribal industrial vibe. In more of the tradition of what you may have heard from YDMM in the past is one long(but not too long) slow moving track, full of tape manipulations, organic loops, and metallic shimmers.
Les Aus is duo (for the most part) from Barcelona. Hacking their way through a number of releases over the years. Tracks that are on this cassette have been recorded from 2005 to 2008 and can be interpreted as some kind of missing link between eps and lps released over this span of time. 'Projeccions' is assisted by Jacob Anodide on guitar and 'Still Searching' features lyrics and vocals by Lydia Lunch. Pro dubbed in stereo and printed cassette shells.
3 years of scattered shows, short tours, blowing up cars and living thousand of miles away from each other. finely this collection of sounds have been narrowed and released.La Maison is Alix Smith(Portland Or.) and Lawrence Mahadoo (Brussels BE.). Screen printed art on textile by the 2 boys who made the music.
One of the most prolific vocalist to come out of Italy in these modern times. Improvised vocal loops, heavy beats and a mix of noise and harmony. The art work is all hand painted and block printed by Megan Diddie
SUCKS hailing from the city of tress(sacramento) meets up with lost relatives SYRUP from the city of roses(portland). Once all was said and done the only thing left was an improvised jam between the two that sounds nothing like what anyone expected. Call it bad call it great! We just accept everyone with open arms and we love you with all our hearts.
the guitar duo from Paris (now relocated in Glasgow) present 30 minutes of noise and beats. a great cassette for after all the harsh noise girls and guys have played their sets and no one wants to go home.
Finland's avant-garde never seems to disappoint. swirling feedback, drones, faint tribe beats, and all kinds of drugged out madness echo from the beginning to the end of the cassette. A great example of free music.Hand painted art work and block print by Megan Diddie
Utons Violin massage series brings you a more stripped down concept of what you would think when you pick up one of their recordings. Nothing is used besides a violin, de-tuned, abused, shrilling sounds of relentless forced meditation.
the sounds of home made spring boxes created of anything they can get their hands on (i assume they are mostly found objects) layering of loops to create a surreal sound scape. This is a great recording to listen to as you leave and don't look back.
"post-alarmist Dracula safari"
the 12" in dedication to Alarmist, a post-animal band from portland OR from 2004-2005. They influenced the people that saw them play and took your carpet for a joy ride once or twice while you knew them. Nick B (drums) aka TUNNELS donates some tracks of psychedelic pop unlike other recordings under the same name. Recorded during the last few days of the band and after the break up. Eric C.(guitar) aka GHOST TO FALCO brings you 2 tracks one almost like a 1 minute western dirge the other more in the traditions of GHOST TO FALCO style recordings. James S.(vocals) aka ARGUMENTIX dabbles in the world of industrial beats and stories of a world left behind in 3034. Assisted on these recordings by Hando on sax. Eva aka INCA ORE(vocals) delivers a chopped and screwed version of some of her recordings mixed with clips of ALARMIST live shows she picked up from Friend Mansion a few years after the fact. On the first track of side crocodile you can hear the ode to ALARMIST by M.Remy (U.S. GIRLS) as she calls in to a radio interview the band was doing. Non of the 4 solo artist sound anything like what ALARMIST was doing and non of the solo projects sound a like. This is a great collection of eclectic music.
This is the first MATTRESS (REX MARSHALL he has some dirty little secrets) release and nothing like what was to come. You can still hear some newer MATTRESS peaking through in the bass lines. Vocals are driven by ARGUMENTIX(JAMES SQUEAKY). photos for the booklet are by James and the story is by Rex.
A mess of buchla synths, field recordings, and all kind of old electronics pre- dating the 1980s. Mike has not released any material since or before this CD and has never played out. I currently don't know how or what he is doing and have lost all communication with him sadly. A great insite to one of the best outsider musicians.
"torn or broken, shadowed or dark, cast off all doubts and ride the flames to freedom"
GHOST TO FALCOs first release. This was when GTF was a solo project with lots of looping and cassettes. A great psychedelic folk record for desert driving. nothing rock about this one it is pure textures and concept with some songs reaching over 10 minutes.
