Most of you know by now that I have merged with Severe Severe. We played our first show together last month opening for Sleigh Bells at Valentine’s in Albany.
That night I debuted the 100 Psychic Dreams DVD and Bastard Sorcerer LP (which is a FREE download for a limited time @ Lofi Kabuki Records).
My third annual Halloween compilation, Do the Fright Thing is well on it’s way. This year I’ve decided to go national (the last two volumes were strictly upstate New York artists). The release date is tentatively October 20th.
fucking crazy busy! lots of great shows this month. make sure you try come out to one!

November 5, 2008
Holy hell, is it really already November? Yesterday was my first time voting, and I feel like I won! Congrats to Obama!
The build up to Halloween was much better than the actual day. It came and went in a flash like always. We drove up to Albany to catch Beware! the Other Head of Science’s set, which was of course awesome (nice Misfits cover).
My “Do the Fright Thing” compilation actually happened and was very well recieved! I’d love to keep these guys going every year, so we’ll see what happens. I promoted the hell out of that thing and if you heard it, I hope you enjoyed it.
To promote the compilation, I pieced together a music video for my featured song “Satanic Lunch”. The footage is very dated (is that.. Fetish??) but fits the song very nicely. You can check it out here:
The day after Halloween show with Firefighter Font was pretty rough. The system is completely ruined, so.. it looks like it might’ve been one of the last Kings Tavern shows. Despite coming out of one speaker (which was shot by the way) my set was pretty well recieved in all it’s lofi glory.
As for November-December and onwards I have no shows scheduled.. I will be putting the finishing touches to “Dog Buys Pistol” and then taking the Ghoul into a completely different direction.
I’ve been toying with the idea of releasing a Ghoul Poon DVD to coincide with the release of “Dog Buys Pistol”. Features would include all of my music videos to date, a couple of live performances and a collection of my short films. The DVD itself would be self released like all my CD’s, probably in my normal paper sleeve fashion, and sold for $2-5. Exciting!
