Artist: GERMAN
Title: Bunker
Format: CDR
Label: Killertree
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Some trusta-irie chump sprawls his curry n¢ cloves apartment scent out in to the alley, jammin¢ Marley¢s "Could you be loved" and ready to give "great and good love" to some skinny-minnie broad (yeah, dreads) when the vibe gets reamed by trash can arguements and a scattered transmission (car), hurling down this sweaty purgatory. The doors/windows get locked and the trustas don¢t emerge for days from fear. Fear from music, man. German (Julian from skull-crushin¢ The Pope/L.A.) Give some unsettling electronic scabage - kinda like when The Residents were cutting their teeth on homemade sound devices, toss in some undanceable New Wave Hookers styled revelry, pull the plug on vision and fuck off to the rest of the kingdom. Limited to 45 copies"-Killertree

Artist: MORDECAI
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: Killertree
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
Latest on Bryan Ramirez (Universal Indians, Ex-Cocaine, etc) Montana-based Killertree label. Silkscreened edition of 300. "Mordecai is a band made of vintage parts hammered together in a dilapidated garage by youthful mad scientists. Its a familiar sound if you know the Stooges, or if you know Poison 13s Tim Kerr and his numerous Texas garage rock reincarnations: grungy, almost falling apart, full of cool sneering vocals. Dont mistake Mordecai for indie hipster. This is real underground. Its how you feel when you thought life was all about the Stones and then you heard the Cramps—that kind of shiver up the spine. The Butte bands new album from local Killer Tree Records boasts nine songs with simple names like "Light," "Iodine," and "Horse" plus the occasional two-letter title, as in "Blow Happy." Its the kind of thing you can do the twist to, but more sinsister. Brothers Holt and Elijah Bodish dont hold back from messiness. Especially on "Seatbelt," where the screech of fingers across frets and cacaphonous solos make it a hungry, honest collection best heard on vinyl since it was recorded in an 80-year-old YMCA in Butte."

Artist: NOLAN & RAMIREZ
Title: s/t
Format: CDR
Label: Killertree
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Crusty and dusted. Pete Nolan and Bryan Ramirez bust movements for the cement licker prone to waking on cold concrete in iced darkness - the blurred vision barely notices a red orb/eye slowly blinking. Analog groans, grunts and shambles. Lights off, below zero weather when the air shatters. Fuckin bag pipes on the first tune w/ Nolans drum attack sets a weird tone. The rest is just weird and gone." -Killertree.

Title: Dunn/Olson/Ramirez - 12/15/93
Format: LP
Label: Killertree
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"1993 - we got our cherries busted with youth noise and desperate freedom. It was a call for musical separation from everything that plugged in and we fuckin got it. We (Jeff Dunn, John Olson & Bryan Ramirez) met many evenings per week for over a year solid, most likely cranked around 200 sessions all recorded on 90 minute tapes - roughly 9000 minutes - all ground into dust, gone. Shit was molded in the walls of 1610 Kzoo St. Lansing, MI, or ransacked by noise bums, or recorded over. But, there was one that got away from the doomhole - a second generation cassette. The recording was at 6am before Ramirez was to catch a flight to Florida - road cone gravity bongs sent this fucker into sleepy-eyed wee-mugs that filed along towards school - periodically glancing at the house to hear this horrendous alien arguement thundering from sax/drums/guitar/keys all aligned in the rocket room. The recording is shattering. Minced analog skreedom recklessly curing informal ills and breaking windows from pure soundwave pressure. Free sound from the early years all innocent-like. Pure and demented is pure demented freedom. Screened covers - killer liners/history lesson by John Olson - limited run." -Killertree.

Price: $8.00
"Not much to remember about 1993 �?? other than discovering Dead C and several seasons of meeting up with Jeff Dunn and John Olson at 1610 Kalamazoo St in Lansing MI �?? in the rocket room (upstairs, middle room) and the attempt to fill every floating atom with solid sound. We firstly prepared with weed �?? from the pipe to the 2 liter gravity bong to the milk jug gravity bong then graduating to the road cone gravity bong. Jeff would play guitar, Olson would play drums, sax, or perhaps guitar, Ramirez usually played guitar but on this session, keyboards and tapes. It would always be a solid blowout, no escape from the sound with everything always colliding and creating languages, stories or whatever. It was pointless to play live (we did once �?? in a pitch black basement days after Cobain tapped out, with only one person in attendance who was tripping hard). It was a good self-indulgence figuring that no one would get it or give a shit so Plants was a Gents Club for weirdos and destructos. This particular splot happened on 12/15/93 at around 6am in the morning (I had a morning flight to catch). The session creeped out of the shingles and into the ears of passerby schoolchildren who looked at the house as if it were levitating. This session was messed up and bent as usual, full on vintage scree manipulation of our instruments the only unordinary thing was that it was in daylight. No songs, just attempting fill every corner and crack with sonic abuse and then when the session ends �?? we just stare at each other with creeper grins like we just built an orb and sent it out in to space in hopes of other life forces intercepting it instead of whatever NASA sends into space to reach out to other worlds. Our orb holds truer �?? reflecting chaos in our world. Plants reflects some messed up shit, but it�??s good shit. Note* This is not the same two-piece current band "Plants" from Portland, OR" - Bryan Ramirez.

Artist: POOR SCHOOL
Title: Dream For Mat
Format: CDR
Label: Killertree
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Bros help out with sending fallen comrade to the invisible river in the sky by connecting via radio waves via free sound jazz wiff Sax/Drums/Guitar tapping into Art Ensemble/Sun Ra/Slayer/Black Flag. Solidly from the heart, soul and from the grime of the basement recorded in. Screwed up improv meant for desolate rivers, dreaming mountains and angry citizens ready for the takeover. Take it." - Killertree.

Artist: POOR SCHOOL/WIGGWAUM
Title: Split
Format: LP/CDR
Label: Killertree
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"There¢s no reason for Jazz not to attack - a split for all seasonz - SF¢s Wiggwaum terrorize the fuck outta sensibility and give no ga-damned reason for the scars - free sound IS supposed to make it feel not so right and this particular declaration is just the shit bomb hurled from many stories from above. Sometimes it¢s a Manson orgy audio buried in Death Valley, other times it¢s blissful fuckin¢ peaches falling from a Krishna tree. SF/Stereomother¢s Randy Lee Sutherland heads this one into the back alleys w/ some pals and lose sense of time and practicality in the best way possible. Poor School on the other hand are just trying to make money by "righting" hit records, but they fuck up every time they pick up an instrument - but y¢know, when you hear drummer Niekrasz pound out this morse code in "mean method" and the sax/gtr combo add to the arguement - just back off and let ¡em justify their violent ambitions. Jazz wreckage and difficulties throughout. 300lps - screened covers by Randy Lee - bonus CDR of lp w/ 2 xtra tracks."- Killertree

Artist: UNIVERSAL INDIANS
Title: Monster Approach
Format: LP
Label: Killertree
Country: USA
Price: $16.50
"Olson: "You Stoned?" Ramirez: "Probably"  Possibly  the going rate for this unit - Universal Indians had this whole other life that  spewed out on the stages and floors, a couple records, a few cassettes, even a  video (which will see the light of day on dvd, much later).  But more at  home and more comfortable slamming out psych blow-outs in the basement of 325  Foster Ave in Lansing, MI.  The so-called legacy thing for MK1 Universal  Indians which stretched from 94 to 97 (not 93 that all music states) was  simple in the philosophy dept and may have a fools merit - Drudge up some  riffs, words, jack the amps, over-distort the Rat pedals to the point of  canceling itself out, throw it together for Jesse Harper executed by The Dead C,  praying for a spot in the Twisted Village or Siltbreeze.  And get real  high.  American Tapes was barely in the double digits and we attempted to  capture every session, every show on Olsons handheld recorder - lo fi to the  gills but solid and thick sounding like speakers takina shit. Green light was  at the crossroads for stacks and stacks of tapes to be pillaged throughout last  Springtime end and Summer eves until four solid cuts were culled for an LP  release.  And this is the shit - the first side ranges from over the  fucking top heavy driving High Rise wah battle to some serious reps on Olsons  traps accompanying minimal trashed-out skronk chords pushing on the VU meter to  pure slimy menacing blues skuzz that dissipates into a fine, loose rubbery mess  (like every song does, and yeah, these are actual songs) with the sound is so  thick that the grooves are white.  Side Two holds two songs meshed together  with fine stewardship ala GDs Ithaca 77 Scarlet/Fire blowout for a solid  side-long mother of all battalion guitar ventures. Nudging Driver UFO & The  Holy Sound of the American Pipe in the UI unisound tradition in a 16 minute rant  that makes this cut a pinnacle in the annals of low-brow grong for the UI books  - 3 or 4 minutes of semi-coherency, the rest a blaze of solid head-fuckery, a  good one to get lost in.  Our version of hard, loose psych to match head on  all the fancy collector jargon hustled for big bills (only to receive some  waysted bar band hashing out piss bloooz).  Call it pride but it needed to  be solid and realer than real.  The end result coincides to a cruddy mix  tape (levels are screwed considering each song is from a different session) and  acclimates to the shitiest of stereos.  These four cuts are from 94-95,  two live cuts, two prax sessions, Olson kills the drums, Ramirez hashes the  riffs, the wah & mumblings.  And there was another guitar lazily played  by someone from somewhere doing something when she wasnt doing her  homework.  Limited to 300 copies on vinyl - the demon is finally at  rest." - Killertree.
