OUT NOW:



BloodLust! 057
BLOODYMINDED
"Magnetism"
CD

"Magnetism" is the fourth full-length BLOODYMINDED
album, surprisingly, released just over a year after their
last CD, "Gift Givers." Approximately 46-minutes in length,
the new album reflects an updated approach to the band’s
sound, and it is comprised of fifteen feedback-drenched
tracks -- ten of which are relatively full-length songs and five
of which are the band’s trademark blast songs. Track length
lines may be a bit blurred, though. Some listeners might
equate the sound of "Magnetism" to the band’s often urgent,
turbulent live sound. This album features much more abstract,
eccentric, and guttural vocals, which encompass screaming,
howling, yelling, moaning, etc., and which will no-doubt
strongly divide listener opinion. Like "Gift Givers," the CD
was co-produced by Brian Joseph Gaynor and Mark Solotroff,
this time utilizing a new studio - Slang Musicgroup. Megan
Emish, ex-founding band member, and ongoing designer,
created a handsome black and white lunar-themed Digipak
to house the CD.

Track listing:
1. “VISITING AN EX-GIRLFRIEND IN THE HOSPITAL - AIDS WARD”
2. “GIRLFRIEND ANNOUNCES THAT SHE IS BEGINNING PROFESSIONAL TREATMENT FOR SEVERE DEPRESSION”
3. “GIRLFRIEND ATTEMPTS TO EXPLAIN SCHIZOPHRENIC EPISODE BY REVEALING CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE”
4. “SMALL HANDS”
5. “VISITING AN EX-GIRLFRIEND IN THE HOSPITAL - PSYCHIATRIC WARD - 24-HOUR OBSERVATION - SUICIDE WATCH”
6. “FASHION MODEL TURNED PROSTITUTE TURNED ENLIGHTENED SEX-WORKER”
7. “CURVED CERVIX”
8. “NUMB”
9. “FIRST VISIT TO A CITY HEALTH CLINIC - CHICAGO - AIDS TEST - PANIC”
10. “SHOTGUN HELD TO FACE BY SEVERELY CROSSEYED ADDICT WHILE ATTEMPTING TO PHYSICALLY REMOVE GIRLFRIEND FROM KNOWN DRUG HOUSE”
11. “CULT ONE (SPIRITUAL)”
12. “SECOND VISIT TO A CITY HEALTH CLINIC - BROOKLYN - AIDS TEST - AT START OF POTENTIALLY SERIOUS RELATIONSHIP WITH RECOVERING ALCOHOLIC AND ADDICT”
13. “GIRLFRIEND’S NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL IS DRIVEN BY PHYSICALLY ABUSIVE FATHER - BULIMIA AS SIDE EFFECT”
14. “CULT TWO (SEXUAL)”
15. “SEXUALLY TIMID GIRLFRIEND PUTTING HERSELF THROUGH ART SCHOOL BY WORKING AS A STRIPPER - RAPE VICTIM”

OUT MARCH 22:



The seventh release in a series of private 7-inch singles from BloodLust!

BloodLust! 056
M.O.
"Forbidden Ground"

7-Inch
45 RPM
Pressed in an edition of 300 copies
White vinyl
White labels with minimal black text
Poly-lined inner sleeve
Unmarked white cardboard sleeve (sealed on three sides)
Black and white insert

"Forbidden Ground" marks the welcome return of M.O. to BloodLust! Pierpaolo Zoppo is one of the most remarkable constituents of the original Italian industrial/power-electronics/ noise/experimental scene. As Mauthausen Orchestra, he released a brace of brutal and influential cassettes on the cult Aquilifer Sodality label, along with a series of significant compilation tracks. Selections from his early work were collected on the now-rare Japanese LP, "Five Years of Slaughters" (1990, Vis-A-Vis Audio Arts), while a beautiful 10-inch record, "Kiss the Carpet," was released by Xn Recordings in 1999. Slaughter Productions kept the Mauthausen Orchestra name alive in Italy, by re-releasing Zoppo's early work, as a brutal double-CD, and in a monumental limited edition cassette box set. Two of Zoppo's contemporary recordings have been released by BloodLust! (B!033 M.O. "Raising Vapours" CD - 1997, co-issued with Body and Blood Exploration; and B!042 Mauthausen Orchestra "Lost in Boyz Town" 7-inch - 1999), and he made a guest appearance on the BLOODYMINDED "Gift Givers" CD (B!045, 2005). "Forbidden Ground" sees Zoppo taking a new approach, re-working older recordings, while still generating a relentless, ringing miasma of electronic sounds.

Orders are now being accepted
$6.50 USA/$9.00 World @ postpaid
All records will be sent in strong 7-inch mailers

Preparations for the BLOODYMINDED "Magnetism" tour are wrapping up. Whether or not we will actually have the new CD on tour remains to be seen. It is really coming down to the wire, at this point. I am also waiting on the M.O. vinyl delivery, which may - or which may not - make it in time for the tour.

BLOODYMINDED will have different line-up configurations throughout the tour. We can happily confirm that for the first two nights, Roland MC-202 expert David Reed (Envenomist/Luasa Raelon) will be joining Ed and I, as a special guest.

In other news, the master for the eighth single in the "private" series will be sent to the pressing plant this week. Details will follow soon. Also, a new CD on BloodLust! is just over the horizon. Information will be announced in the April update, as the release will probably be late next month...
