I am slowly adding more used and rare items to eBay.
You can search under my seller ID: bloodlustchicago
or you may try this link: http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZbloodlustchicago


Please note that I have just had a second major e-mail meltdown within one week, related to the BloodLust! account. I currently have no access to my primary mailbox with archived messages, thus I cannot smoothly continue ongoing correspondence, nor can I reply to unanswered messages that were sent to me within the last few days. I also suspect that I have lost mail during the last 24 hours, so if you are expecting a response from me, please re-send any important messages. Communications and responses may be sporadic until after a rebuild is attempted this weekend. Until that time, I will be utilizing webmail. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
Mark

NEW RELEASES
--------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------
OUT LATE-JUNE:
The tenth release in a series of private 7-inch singles
BloodLust! 061
Sleep Museum
"Street"
b/w
"Theology" and "Hate"
7-Inch33 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
+
This may be the 7-inch single that throws everyone off of
the scent. This is true minimal-synth music, but probably
not the type of thing that most people would think of. This
is not M.B.-style synth-drone, or other noise and industrial
peripherals like that. Sleep Museum is a New York-based
project that specializes in rhythmic, darkly melodic synth
music, which feels utterly contemporary, yet also reminiscent
of certain early-1980s "cold" music, or even the (pre-folk)
electronic era of Death in June. Robert Anthony's unrepentantly
eccentric vocals and dour lyrics first caught my ear on a trip to
NYC in early 2005, thanks to Pieter Schoolwerth. I was fortunate
enough to be there to perform with Jutta Koether, in October 2005,
at one of Pieter's Wierd live events, which also included Sleep
Museum. That remarkably diverse show also featured Double
Leopards, Echo West, Martial Canterel, and Matthew Fanuelle,
and was suitably held deep in the hull of the Frying Pan, a
rusted-out lightship docked at Chelsea Piers. Robert's
performance that night was totally riveting, to me. Sleep
Museum has a new LP, "Dream of Waking," on Anna Logue
Records from Germany, along with tracks on the forthcoming
Wierd Records Compilation 3LP set. I have continually looked
forward to the numerous CD-Rs and mp3s that Robert has
been sending me since last fall, and Sleep Museum has been,
without doubt, one of my most-listened-to bands since then.

"Will To Kill" is the second release in the recently launched
"History of Violence" re-issue campaign, and it quickly
follows on the heels of "Sacrifice Unto Me" (B!059/COS 12).
"Will To Kill" was originally co-released by BloodLust! and
Circle of Shit (B!023/COS 02), in August 1996, as a C-60,
in an edition of 100 copies that quickly sold out. The cassettes
were housed in black hard shell VHS cases, and the first 25
copies included packets of human blood, hair, and teeth. Like
the last CD, the audio for this re-mastered version was prepared
in Lille, France, by Jerome Nougaillon, while John Balistreri's
graphic design follows the standard that he created for the
complete re-issue series.

This CD is packaged in a jewel box with a four-panel
color and black and white, booklet.

Thanks to Coughs, for asking us to play the show; thanks to our friends, for the support; thanks to Marlene, for videotaping.

This was an amazing show! The space was filled, the mood was great, and the line-up was the best mix of bands that we have played with in ages.

We played for about 20 minutes, including the power cutting out, momentarily. The MiniDisc sounds pretty rough, so I am guessing that the mix was rather muddy, as the vocals did not seem to come across well. Regardless, the crowd response was good.

It was great to finally play with Coughs, it was cool to see Dynasty for the first time - they were not at all what I had expected, and it was amazing to see/hear Sword Heaven again. They rule, hard!

Mammal totally killed at the Empty Bottle on Sunday, too. Excellent set!
