Permanent on Rabid Rabbit

Here is a nice write-up of the Rabid Rabbit song (their take on "Gloomy Sunday") that I contributed vocals to, from the Permanent Records webstore:

Tape - Rabid Rabbit - Suicide Song


Price: 4.99

One of the premier Chicago stoner/sludge metal bands returns after two solid vinyl 12"s with a cassingle, albeit a long one. Suicide Song is a super heavy, repetitive sludge jam with a very diverse group of guest musicians like Dave Rempis on baritone sax, Michael Zerang on percussion, Bruce Lamont on tenor and vocals, and Mark Solotroff on vocals. A virtual who's who of the Chicago metal and avant garde music scenes. The cast of egos does not get in the way at all. These folks worked together as a collective mind and created the best 11 plus minute "cassingle" we've ever heard. The flipside of the cassette sounds like the A-side played backwards; even that sounds pretty f'in cool. There's only 50 of these and they're all hand-numbered and featured the tar paper / red wax seal we've come to expect from RR releases. Recommended, indeed.
