Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"CD reissue of 2001 recording, originally released on cassette by American Tapes. Kevin and I traded raw material at some point in 2001. After discussing a collaboration I found a cassette of unreleased material of myself messing with Renaissance (the band) 8-track loops on the floor of my car as I was getting ready to leave for home from a Chicago trip. A couple days later Kevin sent me a mini-disc of his own unreleased material. His disc was caked in spilled coffee or something. I managed to clean it enough to make 8-track tape loops of some of the sounds here and there. One track is myself using Drumm sound sources, and one track is Drumm using Dilloway sound sources.

Title: Boggs Vol. 2
Format: CD
Label: Hanson
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Boggs Volume 2 is a collection of two long out of print CDRs from Wolf Eyes member, Aaron Dilloway. This new release contains, in their original entirety, the Seizure CDR released by Hanson and the Appalling & Alive 3" CDR released by Chondritic Sound. Hound Dog Guy Still Alive Boggs? What the fuck is that? Its a lake filled with witch urine, the real scary type. Three parts expired turpentine, two parts glow-in-the-dark ghost pee & the murky rest filled the reel to reel scrape dust from a light-free candled basement. The soundtrack? This Brighton-born-alien-bird-celled-creature, Aaron Dilloway. Dudes intense, but drunk in a moldy cellar you can tip him upside down to get the change he owes you. Awesome sounds/primitive shit that smart types try to capture in academic wooden hideaways but end up sounding like Paul K & Weathermen. He is for real. These tracks lead to goblin hell that is a broken train built on years of instinct, beer, horror & intimacy. His tape & electronic work is nearly peerless, save for Santa Claus Black Gnome label cassette catalog. Pumping this serious Michigan shit on a half-mooned night will result in your blood planning a meeting to infect your brain with a mock party of jellied-filled balloons that when popped, turn your sanity into a maggot feeding frenzy while singing backwards to a Pepsi half-time ad. Seriously! These transparent audio diaries have been originally released in different forms. Who cares? Count your fingers instead. In life you have two choices: Stop and Be Rad or Stop Being Rad. Aaron Night Fighter Dills been doing his own thing since shorts were baggy & Stephen King was the master musician of horror. Be happy you have two rare boys in one bomb package. Spend the rest of your heart-blood pumping time searching for the third Los Tammies wax while getting to the bottom of Boggs Vol. 2 human tape message time eating symphonies. A one-man stereo Desert Barn Stormer. The only & best people person of horrible noise. I should know, I have been in nearly every possible good & bad situation with him from rock fights, underage beer blowouts, and 13 years in basements. A mangy man of many talents, hear the one in your claw-fist then check out our funk band Stupid Goose. You can wave at the UPS guy but he is still gonna deliver a box of razor babies to you. Local hip hop? Will take Rock Bottom over Slum Village any day of the week, hes just .. I dunno ... harder...." -- John Olson.

Title: Chain Shot
Format: CD
Label: Hanson
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"With only tape loops, metal, and horns (and sometimes, it seems, metal on horns) the two side long pieces, Chain Shot and Execution Dock respectively, explore the ugly underbelly of noise before just scraping right through and aiming for the insides. In a genre that has quickly turned into a broad and often inaccurate description of a certain breed of every-man experimental music, Dilloway sticks to the old-fashioned definition of noise, doing battle with the materials in front of him as he continues the construction of his impressive body of work. Dilloway, a former member of noise-titans Wolf Eyes, has recently been releasing solo work that explores much more abstract and thoughtful terrain than his previous groups onslaughts. Chain Shot is more a sound collage than anything, and while it is a heaping glob of muddled debris, it is also a highly controlled one. Looping samples on top of samples, Dilloway builds a slowly encroaching beast before slowly disintegrating it, bone by bone. This is some highly textural and immediately emotive soundscape work. Execution Dock begins with a repeating loop of what sounds like the beginning and the end syllables of some nuts conversation with a lamppost. In the distance sounds a pained song of sorts, like a rodents death cry, or maybe its birth one. Im guessing maybe this is the horn, though it would be tough to be certain about much of anything here. Delayed creaks and groans float in and around as the vocal sample dissipates, leaving you sloshing through the mud puddle only to realize that its a tar pit the size of La Brea."-HENRY SMITH, http://earconditionednightmare.blogspot.com/ DIGIPAK CD reissue of my CHAIN SHOT LP which was originally released on LP by THRONE HEAP. Contains a 28 minute bonus track.

Format: Picture Disc LP
Label: Hanson
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Alternate version of very limited LP (250 copies) on Japanese label Rockatansky. About 50% of this is actually different & reworked material than what is on the Rockatansky LP. This edition is a one time pressing limited to 500 copies. Recorded 2008 / 2013. Mastered for vinyl by Jason Lescalleet."

"...an amazing LP, with low-level battlefield tectonics and the sound of smeared and tortured magnetic tape coming over like a rusty, Industrial scale take on classic 20th century minimalism. Some of Dilloways most barbarously vacated drone work here, with intense low-level fireworks reduced to inchoate shadow plays and rolling, planetary scale hypnotics. Then there are moments of glissing, echoing metal tones coming out of silence, suddenly morphing into sad feedback chorales ala Eliane Radigues early workings but with a crude, lonely aspect that is extremely affecting. One of Dilloways most personally expressive tone works with intensely sad feedback drones circling wraiths of clanking magnetic tape." ---David Keenan, Volcanic Tongue.

Title: Solar Bridge
Format: LP
Label: Hanson
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Starting out in 2005, performing live sets using only television sets as sound sources, Emeralds has grown in recent years into a monster of HEAVY improvised drone using analog synths and masterfully-effected guitar. Born out of the Midwest scum-noise scene, these guys have taken the intense heaviness of their Midwest brethren to a place that is entirely their own. They have replaced the creepy atmosphere and abrasive harsh noise of their peers with a very different, though equally intense blast of cosmic drone power! Hanson Records is proud to announce Emeralds Solar Bridge, the trios first full-length album after numerous cassette and CD-R releases on such labels as American Tapes, Chondritic Sound, and the bands own imprints Wagon and Gneiss Things. "The album opens with the side-long Magic where the band builds a quiet drone into an extreme thick saw blade of swirling noise as beautiful as it is menacing. The flip is yet another side-long journey titled The Quaking Mess, a track that stabs your brain with fluttering sparks of synthesized needles before relaxing you into a Göttschingesque dream state while slowly bringing you back to earth with an electronic wave of molten rumble. Fans of the smooth tones of New Age Of Earth-era Ash Ra Tempel and the buzzing thick drones of Throbbing Gristles Heathen Earth should take note, as Emeralds may be their new source for electronic drugs."-Hanson. Limited to 668 copies on blue vinyl, housed in a 2 color silkscreened sleeve w/ the usual HANSON DROLL flaps.

Artist: HATERS, THE
Title: In The Shade Of Fire
Format: CD
Label: Hanson
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Hanson Records is proud to present the first LP from The Haters, In The Shade Of Fire, reissued for the first time on the CD format and for the first time in its original entirety. Originally released on LP by Silent Records in 1986, this digipak CD edition has been remastered by Warn Defever from the original master reels, and includes the full complete album as two of the tracks had to be shortened to fit on the original LP issue. Back during my Bachelor of Fine Arts, one of my fellow students was a woman who was eventually obsessed with the idea, systems, and eventual remnants of process. One of her key pieces involved hundreds of raw eggs which she carefully emptied, cracked open, and systematically peeled the delicate membranes from inside of the eggs. She carefully laid out the hundreds of membranes as they assembled in a giant area to the side of the studio. I swear that she didnt even have some grandiose idea for the membranes as the peeling and assemblage system(s) evolved into something that was simply beyond any eventuality and initial idea for the piling skins of the eviscerated eggs. The deconstruction and conception behind the act of pulling apart the eggs into a vast collection of grimy, translucent membrane piles suggested something so much more than even a final constructed piece. Watching her as she realized that the true crux behind the piece was the process alone was astounding as the membranes were laid to rest to represent an almost sudden and powerful eventuality that acted as a piled testament to process. The harsh sound works of The Haters over artist GX Jupitter-Larsens long and established career also powerfully bring to mind the idea of process. Most of The Haters works are ideologies behind something being destroyed or manipulated; the amplified and sometimes distorted sounds of the processes representing a document that exemplifies the acts carried out upon the objects, machines, or otherwise. The act of recording the processes alone is evidence of an eventuality (to possibly be edited further) in the form of a possible final piece of vinyl, cassette, or CD, but the tendencies of The Haters material also intend the listener to experience the process of the audio lines as they were primarily constructed in the recording area. There is no doubt that GX appreciates the totemic quality of his personal objects physical aftermath, that is sometimes documented with video or photographs, but the powerful beauty of a The Haters audio piece is the experience for the listener that acts ALSO as a final document of sound that represent clearly the certain idea and sometimes violent act. The Haters celebrated early work In the Shade of Fire acts a document collection for the listener that also reflects The Haters strong textural aesthetic through object manipulation and recording that defines GXs place in the world of harsh noise. Listening your way through the material is a studied and defined testament to different representational fragments of heavy sound and source manipulation. The tracks Glsam and Diti are explosive introductory and side concluding / framing pieces that highlight and pronounce the breaking and crashing down of material, all gelled with bass driven strikes whose trails deteriorate into hints of cascading dirty and dark Americanoise distortion. Bebas powers through a heavier dynamic with conscious falling apart of source material, but in abstracted waves that suggest the material being rebuilt just to simply fall and crash apart again with a sense of powerful futility. Thuch enhances the textural elements of the explosions and crashing as the sharpness of the strikes are slightly rounded at the edges to expose an almost gurgling texture that moves and slaps with vicious perplexity. Taisic represents a very early Americanoise study of hiss manipulation that is accented with minimalist scraping that bring to mind the force of process on top of the white noise line. Cassas is the albums meditated example of sharp shot-driven violence; articulated and seemingly layered for optimum cutting and breaking which bring forth sound dynamism from very physical deterioration. Fire 5 is an amazing example of a highly textural wall of sound that, to the contemporary fan of gritty and dirty crunch waves, is a primary early example of powerful crackle lines that focus on the inner dynamism of the sound itself. All of the material discussed above is made up of elements of physicality and process, but the tracks Iny 1 and Iny 2 act, for the listener, as the notes for the ideology of process and falling apart as they act as a more minimal, subtle, and exacting study of the scraping, scuffing, and hands on work of the artist as he manipulates the deteriorating materials. In essence, Iny 2 is an amazing concluding track that reminds the listener of the core focus and ideology behind The Haters exemplification of grating sound via concept driven manipulation of tangible sources, the process, the aftermath, and the eventual recording that reflects all of the above sound qualities." -Sam McKinlay

"Weird dudes jamming synths. Alone. Social Problems. Problems. Recorded late into the night. Fucking A. That is the business, right there.

While most noise youth get their chocolate fingers lost in gadgetry and posturing-something about a synth jam thats just.... Human ... humanly wrong. But fucking right. Right on Hive Mind. Out of some strange comic miasma emerged this hulking thing known for playing in corners or under black sheets with short fingers churning out cosmic tales of bass heavy sheets of molten alien sound cut with xray pirate eyes. Dude is some serious Michigan shit. This sound-injecting terrorist is crew to all the like minded and total jag-off MI underground weirdo brethrens. I think he soaked his pyramid genitals in ice cold antifreeze to get where Death Tone lives in underwater-cave life. Jamz are just lurking around your chest buzzing like a Mike Tyson bee until a nuclear war-spear goes directly into your chest leaving your breath exchanged for Korean X-Files future creature Autopsy scenes. Ive been to Roswell, shit is creepy, even at Pizza Hut, mid day. None of my crew jamz synths, some dabble but dont have the slomo overbite terror vision of my man Hive Mind. Isnt your jellied brain a fucking hive? Mine has a really big queen in the center telling me to keep watching The Thing (remake) with the sound off in a super warm birth room while listening to Death Tone on a dying Walkman. I dont listen to the queen, or take advice. Me and my man the Kid thought all Hive Mind needed to hone in his awesome social synth prowess was to be locked in a room with Richard Pinhas for a year on a diet of nothing but snake burritos-but again-no one listens to advice, especially a homeboy. Psychotic drugs, cheap beer, shorties, the Roach, assholes, hung over at work... yesss, heroes to the High Life." - John Olson.

"For the first half of 2005, I lived with my wife Erika in Kirtipur, Nepal. During our days, while she was studying at the Kathmandu Association For The Deaf, I was roaming the streets and villages of the Kathmandu Valley in search of sounds and music. While kickin round the tourist district of Thamel picking up cassettes, I met a family of Snake Charmers from Hariyana, INDIA. An old man probably in his 70s or 80s, his 2 grandsons, and one of the grandsons sons. They asked if I wanted to see a show....I said Hell YES!! They gave me a show...a KILLER show... were talkin 3 fuckin king cobras dancing at once, while a giant boa chilled at the side and few other random lil snake dudes are wigglin around here and there. I became obsessed. I had met my new best friends... Though the kind of best friends you have to pay to hang out with. They were hustlers, yes.. But thats their job... The money was well worth the shows. I spent about 3-4 days a week for the next 2 months, recording their music and their snake shows on mini-disc and videotape. I Drank alot of chiyaa with them, smoked alot of cigarettes and bidis. They taught me how to make reeds out of bamboo, and I traded them some clothes for a snake charming horn. They call them Beens, they are also known as Pungis. These guys were the best. At the end of April they left Kathmandu, heading to Pokhara, after that it was time for them to head back home with their earnings. Man...I missed them. This LP is the BEST OF THE BEST of the recordings I made of them. There are some classic Bollywood tracks, a Nepali folk song, and side 2 is a 19 minute drone journey into the head of the KING COBRA. The recordings were done in stereo. A been on the left, a been on the right. A premtal (stringed percussion instrument) on the left, a premtal on the right. The stereo recording of the charmers sway creates a very disorienting stereo tremelo effect. Its almost as if YOU are the SNAKE! These tracks were recorded in an alley. There is the occasional rumble of a car passing by, and the low murmer of the locals checkin out the white kid with the fancy gadget hangin with the snake dudes. So here it is... pressed on wax, with a kickass silkscreaned cover.... THE SOUNDS OF THE INDIAN SNAKE CHARMER!!" -Aaron Dilloway, September 2005. CD issue of the LP.

"RAIONBASHI is the project of German artist Daniel Loewenbrueck.  Daniel is a member of Aktionist sound art gang THE SCHIMPFLUCH GRUPPE (along with members of RUNZELSTIRN & GURGELSTOCK, FEAR OF GOD, and SUDDEN INFANT), as well as operator of Germanys TOCHNIT ALEPH record label and mailorder.   KOLLEKTE is a disgusting LP:  Human vomit grunts, guard dog growls, the squeal of 10,000 balloons, the clatter of 10,000 tin cans, the mumblings of 1 drunk german artist, additional scum material from John Wiese and Michael Barthel, and to top it all off.... ACTUAL RECORDINGS of the LIVING DEAD!  RAIONBASHI has created a truly awkward document of sound -- possibly the most bizarre record we have released yet. Total confusion to the ears and mind.   A straight-up DIFFICULT listen, meticulously edited to contain only the most disturbing and horrible sounds.  This sounds like NOTHING ELSE. Limited to only 400 copies.  Housed in a slick black and white silkscreened cardstock jacket featuring the usual HANSON outer "droll flaps," and artwork as confusing and disturbing as the sounds contained within." - Hanson.

"Ever heard of the NORTHVILLE TUNNELS?? Its these underground tunnels in Northville, MI that lead to an old abandoned Mental Hosptial. A teenaged RAVEN STRAIN aka MATT BILLINGS used to hang out in those tunnels... ALOT! This is totally the sound of creeping thru there high on paint, seeing only by the light of a shitty BIC mini lighter... runnin around the hospital and reading the forgotten files of the inmates that once lived there. I remember him telling me a story of snakin some old filing cabinet from there and draggin em home thru the tunnels. I think he recorded that and put it on this tape. Total abandonment, illness, and drugs." - Hanson.

"This shit is DARK...and Im not talking about some fucking I sleep during the day dark. Im not talking some Cannibal Corpse shit -- Im a fucking mutilator dark. And Im not talking Im a noise dude into black metal dark. Im talking total fucking end of the world shit. Like everyone is going to die and its gonna be fucking terrible. Recorded in 2009 by sisters Roxann and Rachal Spikula while in a hospital doing some fucked up health study where all they could drink was Shasta for like 2 weeks. No joke! Master tape arrived wrapped in a duct-taped hospital gown with my address written on it in sharpie. Side A: The tape becomes un-paused and kicks in with a menacing organ drone that mutates into the lo-fi skree of an empty room, eventually becoming a swirling abyss of tape hiss and the sound of nothing happening in a hospital; distant creaks, buzz, and hums littered with hiss and garbage-sound layered into a very unsettling frenzied drone. Side B: A crunchy noise inferno that eventually leads us to what sounds to me like being in outer space watching the earth exploding. As you watch everything we know of destroyed, a saddening, descending synth wave appears, buried by blasts of destroyed earth. It ends...and you are disturbed. Limited to 300 copies. Pitch black vinyl with pitch black labels. Heavy duty black and silver silkscreened covers with the Hanson Droll Flaps. Take a break from yer most recent mediocre synth bliss-out tape and take a trip back to the real fucking world -- where everything fucking SUCKS." - Hanson.

Price: $18.00
"Although I was not yet aware of the extent to which casinos tailor their environments for maximum comfort (and, correspondingly, profit), I did know as I crossed the threshold of my first casino floor earlier this year that it would not be my last visit. Hit by a cornucopia of slot machine tones, triggering aleatorically and coalescing into shimmering masses, I was struck by the need to return and record the sounds that so entranced me. It wouldnt prove to be easy--casino security is intense (you can hear me get warned of the consequences of taking photos at the beginning of the discs second track)--and due to the clandestine nature of the operation, my recording techniques were by no means sophisticated. Equipped with nothing but an Olympus LS-11 recorders internal microphone stashed in a sweaty coat pocket, I allowed the lure of the zone to guide me through a series of ambling recording sessions over a period of four months, the best of which are included here. I learned a lot about casino sonics in the process: game designers, for example, tune their machines to the key of C in order to optimize harmonic cohesion; one team of designers, the story goes, even spent a month perfecting a single ding sound on one machine. In the interest of preserving the true ambient sounds of the casino these recordings are completely untreated, but lost in the sea of chance I did exert some affirmative control by means of meandering intent and my actual playing of the machines. And by participating in the games myself I got a taste of the financially debilitating consequences that accompany the enchantment of video gambling. The disc in your hands represents my endeavor to bring you the zone experience without the harsh comedown of its unfortunate reality." - Adrian Rew.

Title: s/t
Format: Cass
Label: Hanson
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"For 19 evil years this thing has been waiting to unleashed. Slated for release in 1985 on Ecstatic Peace this historical document finally sees the dark of night. A friend of mine by the name of Anton LaBaise was an Ecstatic Peace completist. When my band Universal Indians was asked to open for Sonic Youth - Anton said "You have to ask Thurston about Satan Place!!". Many of you may remember seeing this title listed in EP ads back in the day. Thurston said it had never been released and asked if Id be into putting it out. I agreed!! So he had his bud Byron Crowley dig it up in the Ecstatic Yod archive and mail it to me. That was about 4 or so years ago. So finally my slack ass has gotten around to dubbing these things off!!! So what is Satan Place?? Satan Place is a 70 minute interview conducted in 1985 by a man known only as "Phantom Tollbooth" with a group of Satanist Teenagers from upstate New York. What he uncovered is unbelievable... shocking tales of rituals consisting of eating live frogs; drinking urine mixed with oil; sex; drugs; Ozzy and Dio; and other hideous acts which must be heard to be believed. They have guitars too! And there is 20 minutes or so that sound much like Bruce Russell waiting around for the other dudes to show up at a Dead C practice. What we have here is a very important document exploring the twisted minds of the Satanist Teenager of the 1980s. Recorded just a few short miles away from where Satanic teen Ricky Kasso butchered his freind over a bad Angel Dust deal. This is a frightning recording. Recomended only to those with a strong mind and stomache. Ltd to 100 selfish copies." - Hanson.

We used to have heavy skate shred sessions with the goofball and he would destroy the streetz, and still be smiling at the end, never breaking a sweat. You want this dude on your team. And you want the soundtrack to your boiling brain to be his Born Again to Die. Its got this amazing kinda arms-up-in-air-i-give-up-what-is -this-godamnn -sound style beaming through it. Heath man....dude aint really gonna give any clues back....cant count how many timez the crew has cornered the mug and been like: "Yo man....what the hell is going on inside "Live Birth"? Did you just record cars under an overpass and slow it down?" "....ha......that one...thats a weird one right?" "Well,...tell us....the fuck?" ".........." And repeat over the coarse of 120+ Fag Tapes, Heaths label AKA the Pyramids of Michigan. He never has properly answered a sound question, we all have our clues/ideas.. Probably wrong. Sick Llama holds the rotten essence of Midwest Basement Mystery Mind Sound inside the marrow of his weird skull, right behind the strawberry blond tuffs, unblinking bug eyes, and scandi-molded mildew skin. Born Again to Die is his debt, and any signs of progression are tossed out the windows of Ham Studios. I mean its electronics, tape hiss, and ....?????? Heath really doesnt get any better or more refined, just....... stranger AKA more strange. My man Connelly says every Fag Tape has at least a 30% "hands off" factor, meaning, seems like Llama has a nice mutant groove going on and then just jets for 10min, leaving the machine motionless. If you can tell what the hell is going on inside these grooves...bottle it and sell it, it would be ideal to have on tap.......it could be like taking a skinny dip inside the caverns of a black pool filled to the brim with soul-frying electricity waves. Born Again To Die= maybe our kids rat kids will COMPREHEND. Then maybe they can attempt to decode FUNKY PANDEMONIUM...." -JOHN OLSON (Wolf Eyes, Boy Dept. Boyz), May 2007/ "Originally released on cassette in 2004 on AMERICAN TAPES. This is the first full length LP and one of the first recordings ever from SICK LLAMA. Limited to 500 copies.

Price: $10.00
"Debut CD release for Clevelands Skin Graft. Wyatt Howland aka Skin Graft has been blasting his crude noise in the filthiest Cleveland basements and scum punk bars every two or three nights a week for the past five or so years. He has a knack for writhing in the filthy underbelly of sound using junk metal, field recordings and primitive electronics. Dystrophy is complete audio horror texture pulverizing harsh sounds of fluttering static, feedback and crushed metal. This is the sound you hear when you are stuck upside down in the backseat of a hit and skidding car. Just horrible sounds! The complete opposite to the sounds of his past collaborators Emeralds and Bee Mask. Whereas they have aimed for outer space Skin Graft has aimed himself head first into a shitty old Cleveland gutter. Always touring, always playing gigs, and always recording solo and as a member of long running Cleveland noise punks Dead Peasant Insurance as well as Power Violence heavyweights Apartment 213. Recommended for fans of Wolf Eyes, The New Blockaders, Napalm Death, Taint, Murder Corporatrion, Negative Approach, Prurient, and Controlled Bleeding." - Hanson.

Theyve recorded with everyone from Wildman Fisher to Merzbow and more recently, with noise goons Wolf Eyes. This disc is their first full length in nearly 10 years and also the first to feature vocalist / punk beatnik / Blue Oyster Cult lyricist Richard Meltzer. Rumblings is a sound collage of turntable manipulations, electronics, horns, bells, junk, toys, marijuana, and surf rock band. Smegma have been around forever and show no signs of slowing down. They just hopped off a killer west-coast tour with Wolf Eyes, Rubber O Cement and Comets On Fire where they ripped the skulls off of everyone." - Hanson. Budget price.

Deep electronic and horne generated tones stretch and separate overtop of glitchy electronics, ultra crude tape manipulations, and ear-piercing scraping glass.
