Last Night + Mammal

I saw a great show last night, at Co-Prosperity Sphere, for the one-year anniversary of the nice folks at Permanent Records. It was totally great to see Tirra Lirra play again - the were excellent - and they were quite nicely matched up with These Are Powers, who I also really enjoyed. I also finally saw Warhammer 48K, who were a bit different than what I expected live... a bit more driving stoner style... All in all, a very good night.

For those who have not checked the catalog page, here are the details on the Mammal pre-order. Thanks to everyone who already placed an order!

- Super Eight Loop numbers 21 and 71 are completed and have been reviewed. S8L 71 has even more prominent synth sequencing than other recent recordings.

- Pre-production has begun on the BLOODYMINDED "Within The Walls" CD. James Moy has started creating synth tracks in Milwaukee, while Isidro Reyes and Mark Solotroff are working on material in Chicago, sourcing recordings made with Xavier Laradji and Pieter Schoolwerth.

- Masters have recently been completed with Sam Dellaria at 87west for the upcoming M.O. "Where Are We Going" full-length CD and for the first Mark Solotroff "Solo Live" CD, which will be released for the October tour with Envenomist.

Animal Law Song On MySpace

For those who are curious, Jason just added a song from last Thursday's show to the Animal Law MySpace page. This version of "Above Heaven" clocks in at about 13 1/2 minutes, so it had to be split into three parts. Although it is a tad awkward that the first major "event" in the song happens at the start of part two, you still get a good sense of what is going on with this piece...

- Dead microphones and related items are starting to arrive. "Thanks!" to those who have handed me and sent me contributions, so far.

- I just received the new Sigillum S CD, "23/20," which I contributed vocals to. Petulia Mattioli's artwork looks amazing. It is really nice to have a new Sigillum S CD in my hands (and ears).

- James Keeler from Wilt sent me the recent "Witches Brew" four cassette box set on Turgid Animal Records. The collection includes a live track - "BLAKERTH" - that I did vocals on in October 2005 - at a memorable show in Champaign, which BLOODYMINDED played with 16 Bitch Pile-Up, Sixes, and Silvum. Unfortunately, I believe that the release is already sold out!
