check it out, the finest form of flattery!! somebody started a anti-mixtapes blog, but only to post comments on NITETROTTER!! haha. thats hillarious. if you didnt know, Mixtapes! is my record store/Tattoo shop in East Moline,iL. ironically known for bein the "nicest" tattoo shop in the Quad Cities!(and also the only shop that drug test's!) i thought you'd get a giggle, i did!
So, as ive posted before, Phil Ross, my brother from another mother, and i are constantly collaborating on music and art...to simplify it for those up to date with musical happenings, im his shwag Sonny Kay to his shwag Rodriguezlopez productions(thats to simplify, clearely neither is up to par) anywho....this is the latest of his releases that i did the art for. by T. Hannum
T. HANNUM "mount of all lands" c20 - two side-long vocal pieces from Chicago's Terence Hannum [locrian, unlucky atlas]. The A-sides "ascent" is just that, ascension. harsh vocal textures are masked completely with ? Initially we thought this was a tape-only electronics piece. B- "descend" is a beautiful mix of barely audible tones and extended "ping" ambience. Hopefully more to come on 5fork from T. c20 with printed labels, sandwiched in cardstock and a transparency overlay with art by J. Tapia [eyes, nail in the coffin] and 5nakefork. Hermetically sealed poly bags w/ white stickers. Un-numbered edition of around 50. $7ppd LISTEN TO A-SIDE HERE: www.myspace.com/terencehannum
These albums are both on Seed Records, EYES label from the U.K., about a year and a half ago, we did a month up and down the brittish island with our friends SKITANJA...it was a extraordinary trip....leading to both bands getting signed to SEED, and kicking off the tour with there then welcoming back compilation cleverly called"Seed records volume 2" and now a new 3 disc set called SEED X, our friends Leavenworth(aka 5nakefork from Wichita)appears on disc 1, EYES on disc 2, and RELS(feat:myself with a track i wrote for him) on disc 3. the amount of artist's that Bruce compiles is simply uncanny each with a ellaborate history that he explain, sounding like a 6 foot tall, drunken wikipedia! which we love!! we miss him dearly, SOOOO, you should by these before they run out. NIGHT EYES by EYES was also released on this label where we featured amazing artist such as:R.Stevie Moore,Wet Hair,William Elliot Whitmore,Jon Gamino of Mondo Drag, Luke Tweedy, Seth Knappen, Thomas Tapia of MIJA(now on drums for EYES) and recorded at the lustrious FLAT BLACK STUDIOS in IOWA CITAYYYY! and might i add we recorded the opening track at Stonhenge on the summer solstice!!!(unreal)
