Here's the idea- A benefit for the borg ward where artists from the area perform dramatic readings of their worst reviews. This can include anything from published comments from reputable sources to snarky trolls on the internet trashing stuff to boost their self esteem. The category of "dramatic reading" is also open to interpretation and can include anything from dry reads to reenactments. The only qualifications are (a) it has to be a review of YOUR work, (b) you have to use the words of the person who wrote it with minimal changes, and (c) it has to have been written and "published" by someone else (no making stuff up).

The tentative date for the event is november 22nd. Please let me know if you are interested. I am looking to put together an hour long program, which means I will need a decent chunk of readers.

Second, I have a handful of leftover tour tapes from the past tour. Split c20 between myself and the fantastic Kingston Family Singers. Check the store for more details.

Finally, the last batch has been getting some FANTASTIC press, most for the Peter J Woods "Impure Gold, Pt. I" LP. What are people thinking, you ask? Well...

Peter J. Woods has made a president’s address - Animal Psi
Woods manipulates silence to his own nefarious end, invoking a subtle terror through processed computer voices and the absence of sonic destruction- YELLOWGREENRED
Half-hour Behemoth- Tiny Mixtapes
High caliber shit... an unpredictable treachery, this isn’t noise for noise sake, nor for shock value, nor for machismo, it’s elaborate, beguiling, & filthy as fuck, and it’s fucking excellent.- Antigravity Bunny

Beyond that, the Village Voice gave some nice praise to both the LOT and the Bridges of Konigsberg cassettes. Check out the review here. And all of these are still available!

Good to be back, everybody! Hope to see you in September!
