The Fortieth Day LP tests approved

Isidro and I just completed an intense afternoon of appraising the test pressing for The Fortieth Day "Syria: 638 AD" LP on Diophantine Discs. The album is a total bass-monster. Jesus! We sent along our approval to the label, so now the race is on to complete it in time for the June 7th show. I believe that the covers are already printed and that the die-cutting is underway...

From Since 1985, Eraldo Bernocchi, P.NG5361.B, and Luca Di Giorgio (as well as a long list of friends and collaborators), have been working as Sigillum S, an Italian post-industrial audio project of many different natures, where concepts have led the effort and employed sound as a tool for the exploration of the forbidden areas of the subconscious: the result has been a endless paradigm of alien electronic mutations, merging concrete noise research with acoustic transmigration, while visuals and many other forms of media have been also adopted, in order to achieve maximum interaction intensity.

From Formed in Milan on 23 December 1985 by Paolo Bandera, Eraldo Bernocchi, and Luca Di Giorgio. Their unique sound is derived from the use of a variety of instruments, ranging from samplers to ethnic instruments, and guitar synths to shortwave generators. In addition to their extensive musical output, Sigillum S also works in the areas of visual art and text.

I just completed and returned a long - and long-overdue - interview for Exoteric. I guess that it will be up pretty soon. Now I guess that I owe Blake something, ASAP.

It was a busy weekend of Animal Law activity. Thanks to those who tuned in on Friday and/or who came to see us on Saturday... and thanks, especially, to everyone at WHPK, who brought us in for both shows, who fed us and kept us from becoming thirsty, and who helped us carry all of our god damned gear! Photos should be up on Flickr, within a day, or two. Thanks to Lori, for snapping the pix!
