Lunar Mansions / Bandcamp fee-free TODAY!!

Posted in Merch, On The Web, Recording on 01/05/2020 by chrish

Greetings, pop pickers.

Bandcamp are having another fee-free* day, from 8am today (UK time) – the idea being to help musicians make more from selling music online as they are unable to gig under lockdown.

We are currently donating all proceeds from our downloads (which are all name-your-price) to the Trussell Trust food bank network and have raised around £500 so far. So if there are any gaps in your collection, please give generously.

We also have physical merchandise for sale in the form of LPs, CDs, cassettes and T-shirts, and all audio items include a download available immediately after purchase.

And to celebrate we are releasing a 20 minute long new track – Lunar Mansions – originally broadcast on The Dark Outside internet radio special on 4th of April.

Once you’ve checked out our stuff, be sure to have a browse and find some other great music and (if you can) help support artists and musicians at this difficult time.  Some of our past purchases are here if you’d like to have a peek at what we’re into!

*Bandcamp are waiving their revenue share (normally 10% of the sale price) during this 24 hour period. PayPal fees still apply, so please use the Cart if buying more than one item, otherwise they are processed as separate transactions.

 

21st Century Nausea

Posted in On The Web, Recording on 17/04/2020 by chrish

As the lockdown continues, here are a couple more startlingly prescient diatribes from Adam Stone, disguised as 3-minute pop songs.  These were recorded in 2018 and originally intended for a 7″ single and/or the starting point for another Adam Stone & Dead Sea Apes album: plans being what they are it hasn’t worked out that way but we are pleased to share them with you now.

Embrace the new dystopia!

First of all, we’re overwhelmed with the great response to Night Lands – thanks to all the blogs, podcasts etc. that have featured it (list below) and everyone who’s bought it of course.  The album is already sold out in physical formats (possibly a few left in the US at Feeding Tube) but we are planning a small re-press later in the year.  Meanwhile it is still available to stream and download on Bandcamp along with our entire back catalogue.  In particular if you enjoyed the free-flowing, spontaneous music of Night Lands you might like our earlier collections of practice room jams, Thermionic Emissions vol. 1 & 2 which are pay-what-you-like downloads.  On the other hand if you prefer something more definite, we offer the last remaining vinyl copies of Adam Stone & DSA Live In Belper: “40-plus minutes of electric satire and caustic future-punk aimed straight at the throbbing heads of an appreciative crowd of misfits.”

We have provided a new recording – a 16 minute piece entitled Lunar Mansions – to the forthcoming Dark, Outside broadcast The da-daRK OUTSIDE, which will transmit from Dada artist Kurt Schwitters‘s Merz Barn in Cumbria as part of the Aerial Festival on 28th-29th of March.

On the live front we are lining up two batches of gigs – some in May & June and then some in October / November – more details as they are announced (and we are open to offers) but suffice to say that we are finally going international!

Those Night Lands reviews: Fragmented Flâneur  |  [sic] Magazine  |  Fighting Boredom  |  Reverb Is For Lovers  |  Terrascope  |  The Sleeping Shaman  |  Echoes and Dust  |  New Music Social  |  Fuzzy Sun

Podcasts & Internet Radio: Nightfolk In The Afternoon  |  Unending Subtleties  |  Bob Osborne  |  Dandelion Radio  |  Turn Me On, Dead Man

Let us know if we’ve missed any!

Thanks for listening.

The Cardinal speaks

Posted in On The Web, Recording on 26/03/2019 by chrish

Our good friend Dave Cambridge, the man responsible for bringing Dead Sea Apes to the record-buying public, is interviewed over on Echoes & Dust and shares a playlist of forthcoming Cardinal Fuzz releases, including a track from our new double album The Free Territory, due out in May.

On the road again

Posted in Gigs, On The Web on 10/03/2019 by chrish

We’ve got a few gigs lined up now for May and June in Belper, Todmorden, Manchester and the Woolf II festival in rural Wiltshire. See the gigs page for all the dates and links.  We’re particularly looking forward to Woolf II –  Terrascope’s Phil McMullen and Ian Fraser explain more about the festival over on Echoes & Dust.

New Year, New Apes

Posted in General, On The Web, Recording on 25/01/2019 by chrish

A happy new year to all our listeners.  First of all, please welcome new bassist Jack (ex-Fishmongers) and keyboardist Alistair (also of Thee Windom Earles). We’re getting in shape to play live in 2019 and already have a couple of gigs booked in – more to follow.

Our next release will be The Free Territory – a double album which has been gradually coming together in the background over several years.  It began life as loop and drone tracks made using a 4-track cassette portastudio, but grew to include full band recordings influenced by the basic approach of 4-track recording and the spacious, meditative nature of the drone pieces, and features Nik Rayne of The Myrrors on two of the seven tracks.  Coming soon on Cardinal Fuzz!

More new music is in the works including further collaborations with Adam Stone and Black Tempest, and icymi, Chris and Brett guested on Black Tempest’s latest album Psyberspace.  We are also featured along with Adam in the new Optical Sounds magazine.

Relax and float downstream

Posted in Merch, On The Web, Recording on 10/05/2018 by chrish

Several of our releases are now on music streaming and download services including Spotify and Apple Music for your convenience and listening pleasure.  Watch the fractions of pennies roll in!  For those of you who prefer the real thing, we still have some vinyl and cassettes of Soy Dios, CDs of Sixth Side Of The Pentagon, the bootleg-style single-sided 12″ of In The Year 2039 and our 7″ double-A-side Central Nervous System for sale.  All our releases are available to stream and download on Bandcamp.

Recondite, encore

Posted in Merch, On The Web on 15/03/2018 by chrish

The excellent music site Echoes & Dust has a piece featuring our Brett telling the many and varied tales behind the tracks on our latest release Recondite – and a hint of what’s coming next. Read it here.

Due to the vagaries of the distribution chain, we now have a couple more LPs and CDs of Recondite available – head over to our Bandcamp to snap one up if you so desire.  A few other releases are still in stock too – be sure to use the basket to take advantage of combined postage rates – and all our music is available to download including some free/pay-what-you-want releases.
