AWOTT (MOSCOW) «The lo-fi free-psych-noise gurgitation-rock costume-drama is a killer spectacle!» – Daniel Blumin (WFMU DJ)
Spreaders / Zilmrah (NY)
Both of these bands shift their sound between Drone and Harsh Free Noise. Full sound spectrum to evolve from controlled silence, handmade instruments and other treats to be expected from this collaboration.

I shot this a few months ago while opening for Sissy Spacek (Bastard Noise). These guys are performance artists Gerritt Wittmer (worked with Sun O))) ) and Paul Knowles.
They started out their performance by flooding the gallery toilet and causing kind of a strange confusion. I made the mistake of smoking right before their performance, walked in unexpectedly and got my mind blown.
Hands down the most intense performance I’ve ever seen.
(Note: 1:50 he starts crying!)

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:

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.
