BloodLust! 106
The Fortieth Day "II" CD

$14.00 USA/$17.00 World @ postpaid

(CD edition of out-of-print cassette, originally
released in a numbered edition of 50 copies in 2006; The Fortieth Day is the duo of Isidro Reyes and Mark Solotroff, both key players in the power- electronics outfit BLOODYMINDED, a unit known for its confrontational live shows. Here, Solotroff and Reyes show off their kinder, gentler side, using guitar, bass, and synth to improvise "sustained, withering blasts of high-pitched noise that are as distinct from one another as spotlights sweeping across the night sky; jackhammer clatter, jet-engine whines, and forlorn keyboard melodies dart in and out of those huge sounds with the grace and impunity of plovers picking a crocodile's teeth" [Bill Meyer, Chicago Reader]. Professionally duplicated CD, single panel, double-sided insert; black and white artwork; in jewel box with shrinkwrap; Released in 2008)

New Distro Points

We are happy to welcome Hörsturz in Lauf-Veldershof, Germany, Red Light in Salt Lake City, Utah, and Wierd Records in Brooklyn, NY, to our list of distributors (links at right). We are also excited about developments related to the re-launch of Hanson Records in Oberlin, Ohio...
