New EP from Asa Morris titled “4″
It appears that Adam Stump of Grab Ass Cowboys has gone AWOL….. bizarre & awesome all at the same time. I hope to see Adam again someday… hopefully stumbling into the UAG in a dirty plaid coat, bum gloves & a bottle of vodka.
I’ll be joining Grab Ass Cowboys for two shows this month.. one is a last minute show tomorrow at the Saratoga Arts Center opening for I, Destroyer (members of Dropdead), Three World Chant and a few other hardcore bands. Our set will pretty much be an all star cast of Albany noise musicians, including members of Exhalations of the Octopi & Death Is Easy.
And on the 8th I’ll again be joining Grab Ass Cowboys as we take a trip (teehee) to Castle Rockmoore in Syracuse for a basement show. Also playing will be the great Hunted Creatures, Nature and more.

The “Experimental New Musics” night at the UAG was fucking amazing. Great performances from everyone. I apologized for going on a little too long (35 minutes!?), but hey.. I kind of got zoned out. Thanks to Beth for joining me in what was regarded as “desintegrating dub”.
lots of good pictures can be found here:
and here’s a few goodies of our set from Samantha Brie:
This Sunday I’ll be joining Asa Morris at the UAG to help him perform a couple of his songs. We’ll be playing under the name Black Andy. Expect some new tunes very soon. Also performing is Grab Ass Cowboys plus two touring bands, Aseethe and Shores of the Tundra.

It’s a new year! 2008 was seriously the worst year of my life, so I step into ’09 with open arms. For 2009 you should expect: Lots of shows, a new band (or two), new members of Ghoul, a new sound for Ghoul, new music videos (maybe a DVD), Dog Buys Pistol LP on Sub-Bombin’ Records and lots of EP’s!
It’s been a minute! Hope everyone out there had some wonderful holidaZzze. I got a few new toys I’ll be debuting at the next couple of shows!
Well the Proctors Sensory Overload show on December 19th was ruined of course by the first giant snowstorm of the year. Only bands to attend were Grab Ass Cowboys and Bad Costume. I was seriously fucking bummed about this.. but the possibility of a rematch at Proctors is very high!
check out Bad Costume rocking away:
I played a show at Hotshots on 12/22 with Pete Pluto and Firefighter Font. Very awesome show, check out some pics courtesy of Samantha Brie:
got some upcoming shows.. The 17th at Kings Tavern with my noise band If Yes, Then No.. joining us so far is Bad Costume. Also Andrew Hassenger asked me if I’d play a festival he’s throwing at The Art Center in Saratoga Springs on May 30th. It’s going to be a 10 hour festival showcasing solo musicians in the capitol district area. Sounds exciting!
Working on a new EP.. all new material..
