Seriously thanks again to everyone who helped me with this.. until next time..
On a different note I’m making my return to Hotshots tonight with the almost famous Charlie Everywhere. Special guests include Witness and Wake Up Electrified. I’ll be doing my usual death dance set with Chris Brown.
The October 9th UAG show was amazing.. Me and Asa cranked out a seriously noisy freakout. Grab Ass was too damn short, but GOTDAMN Boar & Make Believe Bombs fucking schooled us on the noise tip.

October is finally here beetches.. and this Thursday (10/9) I’ll be making my return to the lovely Upstate Artists Guild in Albany. As usual I’ll be spreading sonic goodie fuzz, performing with Grab Ass Cowboys, Worlds of Shit and two Iowa noise bands; Boar and Make Believe Bombs to Blow up Make Believe Worlds. It’s going to definitely be a good one. I’ll be following my new trend of making every Poony show a different one by doing a split battle set with Asa Morris (of Super Concentration Club) from Glens Falls. Me and Asa are new buddies, have way too much in common and will be playing together for the first time in front of an audience, so it should be interesting.
at this show I’ll be giving away a handful of copies of “The New Killer“, the first CD me and Jeff did as If Yes, Then No back in 2007. I think it’s ready to be heard by more than two ears. You can hear the EP almost in it’s entirety over at http://www.myspace.com/ifyesthenno. Speaking of IYTN, “The Umberland Remix” will probably find it’s release at the next UAG show I’m scheduled for. Asa too will be giving away free copies of his latest EP “Mute“. So, come out.. watch the creepy visuals courtesy of Jason Cosco, watch the Albany noise boys battle it out with some Iowa noisers to see who can knock down the most paintings, get some free cd’s and witness me and Asa’s half hour of spacey fuzz.

put a lot of work into this one. i’m not 100% happy with the outcome, but i still think it’s pretty cool. it tells the story of a dying cowboy’s vivid final dreams. directed by me and edited by Chris-B Productions.
pretty bummed that i missed out on Jessica Rylan’s circuit bending workshop at Skidmore. regardless, check out her work.. it’s very good.
recorded a song tonight with Chris for an Albany noise compilation Grab Ass Cowboys are throwing together.
here’s some pictures of the last Hawtshawts show snapped by Agent Ian.

I go months sometimes without any shows lined up. suddenly they pile on top of each other. Last thursday I did a VS set with Jason Cosco and Adam Stump of Grab Ass Cowboys opening for the ridiculously awesome Hair Police. And I mean… honestly, thank god Thurston Moore played at the UAG.. the attendance at these noise shows has very noticeably been boosted. Century Plants and Rise Set Twilight did a VS set as well and Bone Parade put everyone in the mood before Hair Police exploded into horrible caveman goodness.
yesterday at the last minute I threw down a set at Hotshots (replacing the failed A Fetish for Ethics reunion), playing four songs off “Dog Buys Pistol” and closing with my devilish cover of Classics IV’s “Spooky”. Some got it, some didn’t.. I mean.. I was opening with psych death dance at a hip hop show. I Chris Brown has been shredding the crunchy synths to add to my death dance shows. Pete Pluto destroyed.. best 518 hip hop performer, hands down. I missed Witness and Oddy Gato.
I’ve got quite a few shows lined up. First (not quite official), word has it I’ll be opening for Mathematicians at Hotshots on Sept 1st. Also on the 15th at Hotshots I’ll be playing another show with Rochester’s Audibel and his metal band AIDS. On the 22nd (also at Hotshots) I’ll be doing a noise set with Jason Cosco and Jeff from If Yes, Then No.. opening for Pinkriverdolphin, Harry Pyle and more TBA. Finally, I’ll be playing October 9th at the UAG with a couple of noise bands from Iowa called BOAR and Make Believe Bombs Blow Up Make Believe Worlds. Also joining us will be, of course Grab Ass Cowboys and Worlds of Shit.
take that shit, smoke it and watch Pineapple Express this weekend fuckers! See you at the Mill Fest.

What an epic night. first off the UPSTATE ARTISTS GUILD is the shit (Thurston Moore on June 26th!!). I surprised everyone tonight by releasing a new 7 track EP called “Nice New Shoes, Samurai!” as a free release. It consists mostly of the b-sides of tracks I’ve been working on for my LP, as well as a few live jams (Nude Babes + IYTN). Not sure if I’m going to make anymore of these, so if you got a copy.. enjoy.
First, THE CALL IT ANYTHING were awesome. Psych/prog with an awesome drummer.. they played two real tight jams (I want to say this was their first show?). It was friday the 13th so JASON COSCO rocked out with the visuals: Jason Voorhees on acid choppy clips.. awesome stuff.
I played next with the help of Chris Brown on synths and debuted a couple of actual songs. I played “First Date Spaghetti Dinner”, “Botanica” and “Foxy Pink” all off my LP I’m working on. The performance was alright aside from a few usual malfunctions.. we played through a weird amp which actual made us sound like a lofi, basement 80′s dance group.. so that was sweet.
GRAB ASS COWBOYS shredded it up next with their first performance in a few months. Christian rocked out with an Alesis HR-16 which definitely added to the sonic goodness.
Next up was my second time performing with BAD COSTUME. This was a truly epic performance. JASON JETTE of COMPLICATED SHIRT , Mike of ZAHNARZT, Kevin of BONE BARADE and a saxophonist joined us in a massive drone piece. My ears are still ringing.
And last WORLDS OF SHIT performed with Christian giving him a hand, but sadly I missed the performance.
All in all.. an amazing night in Albany for the 518 noise goons!

Next friday Jason Cosco is throwing a great noise show at the Upstate Artists Guild in Albany, NY. The bill consists of BAD COSTUME, GRAB ASS COWBOYS, GHOUL POON, WORLDS OF SHIT and a psychedelic band called THE CALL IT ANYTHING. The show is $5.00, starts at 8:00 PM, and will also feature some great wall projections as the bands perform.
Also, last weekend, Troy Night Out was awesome. We filled the streets of Troy with some heavy sonic goodness.. expect some clips on youtube in the near future. Enjoy the pics..
