- While I was digging through numerous boxes of master tapes, I found a couple of live recordings that I wanted to listen to, as it had been years since I had heard them. More details soon, but here are some blunt clues about the results of what followed:




- I still have a little more design work to do for the forthcoming BLOODYMINDED LP/CD and then I'll hand it off to Megan Emish.

- I found this photo online the other day. I'm not sure where James was at that moment... With Xavier, Kevin and Paul from Sutcliffe Jugend, and Pete, at Slimelight in London in 2007. (Credit: zuckernacht/Flickr)

- While Skyler and Sam are on tour this month as Mute Duo, we'll be pretty quiet, although we're compiling our feedback on the rough mixes of our new demo recordings, in order to get final mixes from Matt Russell ASAP.  Check out the remaining dates of their tour:

- David, Jonathan and I are continuing our work on the first new Nightmares music in over ten years. We've all been sharing tracks, David has sent us some rough mixes, and I'm really excited by our progress. We're continuing to document our progress and post images on FB and IG.

- Nightmares is the synth trio of Jonathan Canady (Angel of Decay, Dead World, Deathpile, etc.), David Reed (Envenomist, Imvixor, Luasa Raelon, etc.) and Mark Solotroff (Anatomy of Habit, BLOODYMINDED, The Fortieth Day, Intrinsic Action, etc.)

- Last week, I finally got started on the long-overdue process of digitizing the Super Eight Loop tapes. A big part of the delay was conceptual in nature, which I'll explain in more detail later, but a part of me had trouble coming to terms with these recordings existing in the digital world. Stay tuned for more details...
- In the meantime, I already have the first three releases on 
Bandcamp and I launched a Facebookpage, which I hope you'll connect with. Here we go... only 97 more to digitize, mix and master... For your (listening) pleasure...

MYSTERY BOX

http://bloodshop.bigcartel.com/product/mystery-box


Mystery Box - Winter 2018-19

$25.00

USPS Priority Mail postage included

U.S. orders only (If enough demand comes from overseas, I will look into an economic option.)

In order to clear some space in my label and personal storage spaces, I am putting together a series of "mystery boxes." These boxes will each contain a unique mixture of items that I have amassed over the years.

Description of contents:
- A minimum of ten (10) recorded items, made up of a random/unique mix of cassettes, CDs, CDRs, 7-inch vinyl. These items will be a mixture of second-hand, new, sealed, distro overstock, etc. 

-Printed matter, including a random/unique mix of flyers, posters (folded), stickers, catalogs, etc. 

- While these items will predominately come from artists, bands, and labels that I have crossed paths with over time, I may include a small number of BloodLust! items, or items from my own bands. 

- Items will be carefully packed with protective bubble wrap.
