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.

Ah Thanksgiving.. that can only mean I’m full of bubbles and tofurkey as I type this little update.
First Jason Cosco just put up a full video of me & Asa Morris’ noise battle at the Upstate Artists Guild in Albany, which you can view below. The jam is certainly awesome. We get into quite a groove at times.
Part 1: (9:51)
Part 2: (6:47)
I’ve got quite a few shows coming up to end 2008, although most are TBA. December 22nd at Hotshots is a definite though is. So far it’s Ghoul & The Valley Ghosts from Michigan with more TBA.
The house party basement show with Audibel & Samuel Yager (Tone Pony/Birthdays) was pretty sweet. Me & Samuel played together and did two improv sets of noisy electro. It was pretty awesome and maybe we’ll do some more in the future.
This Saturday I’ll be hitting up Aimie’s Dinner & a Movie in Glens Falls for the Mathematicians debuting their long awaited DVD “Transdimensional Odyssey of Doom“. It’s $15, but everyone will receive a free copy of the DVD.
“Dog Buys Pistol” is about 90% finished. I’ve also started work on a new project and new direction I’d like to take the Ghoul.. exciting.

On November 22nd, the good folks at the Upstate Artists Guild are about to do some iLLy shit! “A RIVER OF DRONE”, presented by the Albany Sonic Arts Collective will showcase some of the areas noise musicians attempting to perform a continuous 12 hour live drone performance. The show runs from 12pm-12am and will be a good one for sure. Musicians include Eric Hardiman, Ray Hare, Holland Hopson, Jason Cosco, Michael T. Bullock, Linda Aubry Bullock and hopefully yours truly! Regardless I’ll be in the house in awe.
The day before Halloween I went and checked out Lee Ranaldo and Leah Singer’s collaborative performance/installation “Space within these lines not dedicated” at Hudson Valley Community College. Lee ran from various rooms, swinging one guitar from a rope and just messing around on another, creating a full on sonic assault while Leah projected what appeared to be footage of a crowd in Japan. To top it off I got to meet Lee and told him I wanted to father his babies.
Still no official shows lined up for me to finished out 2008 (aside from a private house party on November 21st with Audibel and Tone Pony, and hopefully the River of Drone performance). I’d like to maybe get a show together around my birthday.. we’ll see about that.
After hearing a couple songs on the radio, being like HOLY SHITTT and finding out it was a band called Beach House, I finally checked out their two LP’s. Pfffft, so good. I don’t really know about I feel about the new Gang Gang Dance record.. gotta spin it a few more times before I decide.
