Time Out on 11/26

From Time Out Chicago

Chicago's Yakuza doesn't so much mix styles as it does paste them together—speed-metal yields to brief passages of pensive post-rock or jazz. But in this case, dilettantism isn't a bad thing; each part colors the others, and a brooding tension lingers throughout. Support comes from long-running sonic antagonists Bloodyminded, specializing in earsplitting electronic noise.

Wierd at Seven

Congratulations to Pieter, who will be celebrating the 7th anniversary of Wierd, tomorrow night, with a live performance by Xeno and Oaklander... and I hear that Liz and Sean are debuting all new songs from the forthcoming 2011 LP... I wish that I could be there...

Status - 11/16

- All paid orders (including Discogs and eBay) have been mailed out and are up-to-date. Those in Chicago wishing to purchase the new Atrax Morgue "Omicidio" 7-Inch may also now do so at Permanent Records

- Last night's The Fortieth Day session yielded familiar yet intense results. Maybe it was the blood sausage (ritual) that Isidro and I partook in before we went to the space. Maybe it was all of the garlic in the jibaritos. The packaging for "Constantinople: 746 AD CD" is coming together and we should be announcing details on this exciting release soon...

- Exciting things are brewing in the Sleep Museum camp, too, and news is forthcoming on a very special set of releases under the "Forschung" heading, due in early 2011

- Off to Anatomy of Habit practice soon...

November 25, 1996



Handbill for 1996 NYC show



Unused ticket for 1996 NYC show

Status - 11/15

- Busy week ahead, prior to Xavier's arrival, the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend, BLOODYMINDED (11/26) and Anatomy of Habit (11/29) shows, etc.

- Atrax Morgue orders continue to stream in, so thanks to everyone who has taken an interest in this great new single! I am packing up the weekend's orders and I plan to get them in the mail before tonight's The Fortieth Day practice/recording session

- Per the notice at the lower right, I am putting a (temporary) hold on the label's typically open demo policy, due to an ambitious upcoming release schedule and a difficulty in keeping up with all of the music that has been sent to the label over the past six months, or so...
