New tour dates with Phosphorecent.
Regarding the "days off" in April, there'll be updates in and around Kentucky and Boston/PortlandME.
And soon coming are dates in France and Spain in May, all with TJO. If you're on the West Coast or in the UK and more northern
parts of Europe, gonna see you later in the year. We could use a little help with booking in the UK (all parts) and Germany,
if you're into it. Furthermore...
For domestic booking, write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For international booking, please write here with the subject "booking: (city/country)."
Jan. 25/07 Sheets of Easter
Parts & Labor, A Pink Cloud,
Diamond Caverns, and what we all have in common:
Look here first. There's this, too.
The new record (There's No Home; CD/Vinyl) will be out in March. The EP (CD/Vinyl)
will follow. April tour (Northeast->Chicago->Texas) with John Hunter in tow to precede possible return to parts of Europe
in May. Duet planning is happening, and February is the time. West coast and other domestics later in the summer/year, and
if you know how to tour other parts of the world (Japan, Australia, Eastern Europe, South America, etc.,) get in touch.
around here are stoked for Matteah Baim's record (DiCristina), several upcoming Gnomonsong releases, the cold, the return
of heat, and the recently recovered ability to purchase things, namely socks, bike locks and coveted Stockhausen records.
A while back I made a list of songs I enjoy for Discollective.com, to whom I am grateful for the opportunity. That list is now up.

Jul. 5/06 Cassettes
This company has released BUHD on cassette. It's 2 cassettes featuring extra songs, live versions, demo versions, and awesome packaging.
A very limited run, a few of which will be available at live shows. The same is true of a home-made EP - 5 new songs, hastily recorded and packaged in mailers with hand drawn covers.
Jun. 1/06 JRACULA
band I'm in, that I slay in, that I badly dance in, has some songs up on spymace. Hrra.
Castanets will tour in July and August with Black Heart Procession and the Devics, and I have come to think that I will play some bass and sing some alto and provide
a rock function (one of several.)
May 21/06 Time off, recording, monkeython
Most of June and July wil
be dedicated to getting a few projects finished, among them:
A split cd, one "side" being Jracula (band involving Aaron
Bartz of Tame...Tame and Quiet and Butterfly Knife, Toto Miranda of Octopus Project and Woozyhelmet, and Jay Crossley of Jay
and also of Woozyhelmet) and the other "side" being one of the various faces, as yet undetermined, of the pantheon that is
Arthur Bates (my hoes are for Thick Cybernetic Scarecrow. I meant my hopes, but my hoes are for this as well). Another hope
is that the cd will feature a short film by James Weigel, aka Diamond Gem, aka Silver Bullets, featuring performances by myself
and Mssr. Bates in addition to other undesirables/hotties.
A split vinyl (7-inch ?) between my younger electro-ignorant
self and those gods of devil and bitch noise, Indian Jewelry, to be released on Centerville (Bartz and Matthew Brownlie of
Bring Back the Guns.)
Another split, this one between Matty & Mossy (unreleased instrumentals) and Inoculist (irreleased
And some other stuff, maybe.
The latter summer includes more bassing in Castanets, the Peter
and the Wolf, 'Nets, and JH boat tour skippered by one OCDJ, possibles with Metallic Falcons (a million!) and circuits with
Deertick, for whom yall had better continue to watch the fuck out.
Tour with Castanets drawing
to a close, sadly. See dates on the Live page for an upcoming US tour and soon to be announced Europe tour with Marissa Nadler,
plus an endorsement of unicorns.
Upcoming tour dates as a member of Castanets (with some opening
performances) in parts of Europe (Jan. - Mar.), stateside (Mar.- May; with a band?! maybe), and another maybe in the form
of some more European dates mid-summer with Marissa Nadler. Spots at SXSW and Devendra's day at ATP. A lot of hot shit I am
real psyched on. Meanwhile, my brother and friends' band, Dethro Skull, is preparing to re-conquer Houston. Beware!
Blank Unstaring... is here, in my hands, anyhow, and coming to whatever stores will have it in week
or so's time. Maybe two. Godwilling,
maybe touring as part of Castanets for a bit in late November, early December. Probable UK/Europe solo performances in mid-December,
and renewed states touring starting early next year. Lots of Austin/Houston shows. Need a haircut.
split LP on Troubleman Unlimited is now available in stores, as well as at shows. The RK cover (Dev's, acourse) is butt-shaking at its essence. Almost out,
Voodoo-EROS's "The Enlightened Family" lost recordings compilation. Maybe out, Spleen's "The Black & White Skins: Vol. 1" on Le Disque
du Crepuscule. A full-length (Blank Unstaring Heirs of Doom; Gnomonsong 001) is done, and will probably happen late
Three more weeks of tour, this time heading south with the cantankered magic wonderment of
Meadows, Mouth of Leaves, and Lights. Meadows is a solo monster, whereas Mouth of Leaves and Lights are two-pieces. Elsewhise,
go see them in Brooklyn. All are liable to kill you in your sleep and bring you back a bedazzled hippy zombie. Or zonkey eh
simone? We set out soon, in our "The Summer of Golden Blood," dumping finally in Texas. Party.
My old band, Matty &
Mossy, has some songs in this movie, and also, in this one, both excellent films by one Andrew Bujalski.
