Artist: VAMPIRE BELT
Title: Unfit Structures
Format: LP
Label: Hermit Hut
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Formed in 2002 in Western Massachusetts, Vampire Belt is Bill Nace (Body / Head, x.o.4, Ceylon Mange) on guitar and electronics and Chris Corsano (Rangda, Joe McPhee, Evan Parker) on drums and electronics. Early on, they selfreleased a couple of ultra-limited CDRs of lo-fi blow-outs, something like a mangled car wreck at the intersection of hardcore and free jazz. Tours followed and then, in the early/mid 00s, Nace and Corsano partially phased out of Vampire Belt duomode in favor of collaborations with people like Jessica Rylan, Paul Flaherty, Steve Baczkowski, Okkyung Lee, Greg Kelley, Mats Gustafsson, Thurston Moore, Dredd Foole and Bill Orcutt. But in 2014 they made good on a nine year-old promise to Ben Six Organs of Admittance Chasny to record a Vampire Belt album for his label. Unfit Structures, Vampire Belts first LP, comes via Chasnys Hermit Hut label and its not such a far cry from their obliterating early CDRs: high-energy improvised outbursts with spontaneously structured forms imploding just as soon as they begin to solidify." - Hermit Hut.

Artist: VAMPIRE BELT
Title: Dead Is OK
Format: CDR
Label: Hot Cars Warp/Open Mouth
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"First release on Hot Cars Warp in a long, long time. Vampire Belt is Chris Corsano (Action Trio with Paul Flaherty & Thurston Moore, Kiyo Butai with Matt Heyner from Test/No Neck, Dredd Foole & the Din, auxiliary Sunburned Hand of the Man member) on drums, patch cords, bass, vocals & other junk with Bill Nace (Katellus, Ceylon Mange) on guitar, contact mics & etc. This is their first recording. 30+ minutes of loud, zero-fi, all-improvised noise/free(dom[freedumb]) rock gurgle. No overdubs or fancy shit like that--just the sweet sounds of simultaneous equipment malfunction and technical difficulties. With hand-designed covers. One attentive listener dropped an early-Swans comparison. Another a Cold Hands/Beaches & Canyons-era Black Dice. Another a Harry Pussy for tots. While we cant claim these descriptions to be accurate, we thought we should at least let you know about them." - Hot Cars Warp. 10 out of 10 in VICE. ??
