Record News

Posted in Merch, Recording on 27/11/2022 by chrish

We’re delighted to announce a split LP with our Canadian pals The Band Whose Name Is A Symbol, featuring a side-long track from each band.

Our piece Lunar Mansions was recorded at the tail-end of 2019, completed in the early stages of the first Covid lockdown and premiered on The Dark Outside‘s internet lockdown special in April 2020; while the Symbol were recorded live in rural Richmond, Ontario earlier this year with an expanded 9-piece line-up.

The vinyl pressing has sold out on pre-orders this side of the pond, so there may be a second batch in the works very soon – watch this space or follow Cardinal Fuzz for updates. In North America, check at Feeding Tube Records for any remaining stock. There are also a few CDs in Sam Giles vinyl-replica sleeves available from Cardinal Fuzz.

On the subject of selling out, we are down to the last copy of Live In Belper, and this is a signed copy with the inimitable squiggles of Adam, Chris, Brett and Jack on the front cover.

Astral Daze

A great night at Rebellion last night. Big thanks to Sammy and the Acid Mothers crew.

Our next gig is back in Manchester, on Saturday 5th of November as part of Astral Daze at The Peer Hat and Aatma above it.

Also next month we return to The Golden Lion, Todmorden with the mighty Part Chimp. That’s on Wednesday 16th November. See the gigs page for all the info.

In other news we’ve finished recording our next album, so it will be in the works as soon as possible. For a preview, check out Parasite Rex on the mega compilation We Love You Junzo.

We Love You Junzo

Posted in On The Web, Recording on 22/06/2022 by chrish

We’ve contributed a track to this compilation raising money for Junzo Suzuki:

Junzo has touched many people’s lives on the underground/psych scene, and collaborated with artists such as Mike Vest and Snakes Don’t Belong In Alaska. Earlier this year he suffered a serious brain injury after falling from a rail platform in Tokyo and is currently in a rehabilitation hospital, unable to play live and also without the wherewithal to access his recording revenues. His friends Tabata Mitsuru & Ned Netherwood have set up the ‘Friends of Junzo‘ Bandcamp page to help support him and organised this compilation, running to 27 tracks and nearly 4½ hours of audio. The asking price of ¥1,300 is just under £8. Full track list and details here.

Golden Lion Sounds

Posted in Merch, Recording on 23/08/2021 by chrish

We are proud to be part of the Golden Lion Sounds series of split singles, alongside artists such as Gnod, Jane Weaver, David Holmes and Jarvis Cocker. The latest GLS release features an exclusive new track from us, Night Of This World, and on the flip an intense jam from our old pals Carlton Melton.

The 7″ single features a unique 3D label and is now available to order on transparent violet or standard black vinyl, for delivery around the end of October* – also check out the other releases and merchandise from Golden Lion Sounds.

*As you may have garnered, increased demand, Covid and Brexit have caused a massive backlog in vinyl pressing especially for the UK.

DATALAND review round-up

Posted in Merch, Recording on 04/03/2021 by chrish

We’ve had a great response to our latest album with Adam Stone & Black Tempest, DATALAND – here are some of the reviews available online.

Terrascope | Record Crates United | It’s Psychedelic, Baby | Vanguard | The Fragmented Flâneur | C-Beams Glitter | Soundbergs | The Psych Rock | The Sleeping Shaman | My Rock News | The Ominous Drone | [sic] Magazine | Revolt Of The Apes

If you’re quick there are a few of the red & white splatter vinyl left at Cardinal Fuzz; otherwise the album is available on classic black vinyl from a variety of outlets and distributors in the UK, EU and North America; and on our Bandcamp site where we also have CDs and downloads.

Coming soon…

Posted in Merch, Recording on 25/11/2020 by chrish

We are pleased to announce our forthcoming album DATALAND, a collaboration with both Black Tempest and Adam Stone. Its origins lie back in 2018, but it was the Covid lockdown of 2020 and abandonment of our existing plans for the year which provided the suitably weird circumstances for it to flourish, with most of the audio being recorded in our respective homes and sent over the internet. Insistent, evolving electronic sounds run into a variety of guitars and percussion, from the clockwork kosmische of ‘Lost Hours’ to the stumbling noise dub of ‘Shop Soiled’, while Adam Stone’s words meditate on life in the post-industrial west, our increasingly atomised and data-driven society and its logical conclusion in a corporatised dystopia.

Dataland will be available through Cardinal Fuzz (UK) and Feeding Tube Records (USA) on red & white splatter vinyl for direct sales and black vinyl for retail, plus a small quantity of CDs in handmade replica sleeves; and downloads will be available from our Bandcamp page.

We are also pleased to announce that two out-of-print records from our back catalogue are being reissued, also by Cardinal Fuzz and Feeding Tube:

The Sun Behind The Sun, our 2013 vinyl debut and first collaboration with Black Tempest, will be re-released in a fabulous mirror board sleeve; and our most recent album Night Lands is being re-pressed on clear vinyl with a black twist.

Pre-orders for Dataland, The Sun Behind The Sun and Night Lands will open on Friday 4th December, which also happens to be a #BandcampFriday when Bandcamp waive their usual cut of the purchase price.  The official UK release date is 29th Jan 2021 to allow for potential delays over Xmas/New Year but we will send them out as soon as we can. Fans in North America wishing to avoid heinous shipping costs are advised to hang tight until stocks arrive at Feeding Tube Records.

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!

It’s a lockdown

Posted in Recording on 07/04/2020 by chrish

RETREAT TO YOUR BUNKER, a track from our album with Adam Stone WARHEADS has struck a chord recently, what with being told by the government to stay indoors whenever possible.  So here for a limited time only is a special Lockdown 2020 mix, Adam’s original vocals supplemented with some of the instruction and advice we’ve been subject to in the last couple of weeks.

More exciting Adam Stone & Dead Sea Apes goodies coming this Friday!

 

Oh, Bugger.

Posted in Gigs, Recording on 16/03/2020 by chrish

Well we were looking forward to announcing a load of gigs in the coming months but as you’re no doubt aware the whole live entertainment situation is being rapidly shut down in the face of COVID-19. We’ll keep the gigs page updated with what’s scheduled and what’s cancelled but things are changing by the day so please bear with us.

In the meantime we’ve made all our releases free (or Name Your Price) to download on Bandcamp

Good luck and stay safe!
