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.

Aaahhhh! What an awful show last night at Hotshots! Packed crowd full of people excited to finally catch me live.. faulty wires/faulty synth? Who knows what the fuck it was, but it was complete FAIL. I’m really rethinking everything with this solo performance thing. I need a new BAND. I want to be the background guy again. Anyways, I’d like to thank Chris for playing with me, Jesse for helping put the show together, Worlds of Shit, Firefighter Font and Pandha Piranha. Everyone else put on an awesome show!
The show next Monday I’ll be doing a noise set.. no songs. So yea, come out and cover your ears.
I also just jumped on the bill for next Wednesday’s Kings Tavern show with Severe Severe (who just played the SoCo Music Fest with MGMT and Justice) and Childbite (from Detroit). not totally sure what I want to do for that one, performance wise. We’ll see..
As for the cd.. it’s awesome.. you’ll hear it someday.

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!
