Title: Body Blues
Format: 7"
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $7.50
"opening panel in a three part series. two side long pieces drift between driving nostalgic road weary head long plunges into human mysteries and sombre lone rose-pedal synth write private and voyeuristic existentialism. bxc is one of the few independent voices of rapture emerging from the tunnels of noise. pro print glue pocket sleeve." - Hospital Productions.

Title: Challenger
Format: CD
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Challenger is a composed work rather than his more improvised work, each piece revolving around a central melodic theme with field recordings, an audio diary bridging the gaps. Its emotions of a period of time set to tape. The sounds range from pure tonal mood to huge electronic crescendos. But whats most remarkable is the use of space, where parts come in and drop to build or recede .When the piano crashes in "Mysteries of the Organ" its almost a frustration of paradise, a rejection of perfection or maybe a jolt of inexplicable life, unable to be translated into proper `communication. Juxtaposed with the quiet haunting of "Hopelessly Devoted" which sounds like a love letter written to outer space, it makes for an album that is both dynamic yet consistent as a full statement." - Hospital Productions.

Title: Inside The Shadow
Format: CD
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"A reissue of an obscure tour-only recording from 2005 brings to the light the flickering dance of Mr Yeh and his dives into organic drone music. Unlike the majority of his electronic compositions, Inside The Shadow reveals three textures brought to life with violin, chimes and bells that defy most of the contemporaries limitations to synth-only exercises. Yeh proves the heart of landscape-oriented linear composition is only limited by the imaginations of the creators and brings warmth to an otherwise cold genre with the flame of Inside The Shadow." - Hospital.

Title: Lets Play Wild Like Wild Cats Do
Format: CD
Label: Hospital Productions
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Lush, driving, desperate drone engulfed in suspended introspection." - Hospital Productions. "So why pick Burning Star Core now after all these years? Aside from the obvious, theres an amazing confluence among Spencer Yehs own sound that hes been striving at for years and between various facets of an underground noise and improv scene thats virtually bursting at the seams. His music fits a number of certain tastes, be it catering to those raised on the tried and true avant garde-ians of yesteryear to the recent emergence of the post-hardcore set ripe for fresh sounds and new, more abstract and virulent noises.  With all the attention being paid to left-field musicians at the left and right of America, now might be the time to head towards the heartland, and some of the seeds planted in Cincinnati courtesy of Burning Star Core." - Michael Crumsho.

Title: Blood Lightning
Format: CD
Label: No Fun
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"Creeping drones, strange mutilated vocal incursions, and compositions full of unidentifiable sounds both acoustic and electronic. Another classic in sound exploration from the mind of Mr. C. Spencer Yeh. This is the sound of humanity looking into the depth of their soul searching for a reason to continue fighting the daily maze of homo sapien life. The three sisters on the front cover of this album all have the "mark of the devil. Like all No Fun Productions cds comes in the deluxe classic mini-gatefold style no fun CD case." - No Fun.

Title: Operator Dead... Post Abandoned
Format: CD
Label: No Quarter
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Cincinnati native C. Spencer Yeh has been releasing records under the Burning Star Core moniker since 1993. A classically trained violinist, Yeh is the center of the amorphous free noise group whose past collaborators have included: Comets on Fire, Hototogisu, Chris Corsano and Thurston Moore. Operator Dead... finds BxC as an extremely loud four piece who waste no time and get right down to business creating massive, looping, head-splitting drones and titanic walls of sound. Calculated and controlled; the intensity builds and builds only to crash down into free-noise, psychedelic fury -- sounding something like the universe imploding in on itself, only captured inside a run-down Kentucky recording space." -No Quarter.

Title: Papercuts Theater
Format: Double LP
Label: No Quarter
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Ah, the live album: often a tool for bands looking to wiggle out of contracts or perhaps, squeeze a few more pennies from a loyal fanbase. Rare is it a work of art. Inspired by these singular instances (Grayfolded, The Grateful Dead; Sonic Death, Sonic Youth; In Search of Spaces, Flying Saucer Attack) C. Spencer Yeh, the lone constant of the long-running Burning Star Core project, conceptualized Papercuts Theater: one long piece (broken into four movements) culled from over sixty live performances, spanning years and continents. These formerly disparate relics of time and space now exist as one: a sonic document of the present." -No Quarter

Title: Brighter Summer Day
Format: LP
Label: Thin Wrist
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"Decked out in a skullfucked sleeve that looks like a cross between Slayers gorecore classic Seasons In The Abyss and the prison tattoo iconography of original Cleveland gutter punks The Electric Eels, the debut vinyl from Ohios Burning Star Core reconciles the euphoric, physical power of Metal with punk primitive aesthetics and huge lungfuls of drone. The A side is 16 minutes of heavy violin thats more Sonny Sharrock than Tony Conrad, with mainman C Spencer Yeh amassing waves of singing overtones via treated strings and electronics, while Chris Rosing provides the horizontal momentum, accelerating the piece towards the horizon with an epileptic bass drum and some furiously clanking chains. The piece builds to nowhere, growing more potentially eplosive and menacing with each pass, with Yeh stretching his violin to even more extended peaks while never relenting on the tension. The second side features Yeh alone, working through some "sleep deprivation experiments" with a laptop for company. Here he alternates strangulated computer tones that sound liek theyre being torn from a huge electronic harmonica with wraithe-like breaths turning through disconcertingly staggered loops." - David Keenan, WIRE.

Title: West Coast Spring 2004
Format: LP
Label: What The..?
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"For the curious and complete we present a new imprint seeking specific live experience on a vinyl format. Our first edition is from the Burning Star Core, this time caught in a duo of C. Spencer Yeh on voice and violin, and Robert Beatty (Hair Police, Eyes and Arms of Smoke, Three Legged Race) on his self-style "acoustic appraiser" and electronics, during the spring in 2004 on tour with LA language Open City. Burning Star Core timeline watches would place this same time when the collaboration LP with Comets on Fire was recorded, and when "Lets Play Wild Like Wilcats Do" was first available as limited CD-R. Two complete sets from Seattle WA and San Francisco CA, what was felt was the very best ones from previous archive cassette collection on Yehs quiet vanity imprint Dronedisco. The flavor of this time is very stripped down with attention to destiny and velocity; for fans of raw electronics, vocal action and hyper-dry violin, with some brief drone for the complete trip. Only 300 numbered copies with inserts. Be sure to control an eye and ear out for the future of WHAT THE..? records!"
