Super Eight Loop continues to be a focus. The two new BLOODYMINDED live at No Fun Fest (2005/2006) limited edition CDs are available exclusively through our Bandcamp page. My new solo recording is available now on cassette, exclusively on my Bandcamp page. This week, I've started reviewing final and rough mixes, 4-track process cassettes, and early source material from the Ensemble Sacrés Garçons II CD, the unreleased follow-up to our debut on Old Europa Cafe.
Thank you for your support in 2018! Have a great new year!
The "Mystery Box" continues to gain in popularity and I've been enjoying packing them up for those who've already ordered them. I've been digging up some cool old flyers, etc., to include. Thank you to those who've already played along! http://bloodshop.bigcartel.com/product/mystery-box

Two new live BLOODYMINDED CDs from our 2005 and 2006 performances at No Fun Fest are available now. The CDs are each limited to 100 copies and they are available exclusively through our Bandcamp page (not via the BloodLust! webstore)
The Fortieth Day is the duo of Isidro Reyes and Mark Solotroff, both key players in the heavy-electronics outfit BLOODYMINDED, a band known for its aggressive and confrontational live shows. In The Fortieth Day, Reyes and Solotroff utilize guitar, bass, drum machine, and analog synthesizer to create epic, blackened, psychedelic-industrial drone soundscapes.
The limited edition cassette version of my newest synth recording is now available exclusively through my Bandcamp page (not via the BloodLust! webstore). The cassette was professionally duplicated in an edition of 50 copies, it features black and white Xeroxed covers hand finished in red ink, and it includes download codes.

I just found this uncredited review used in a press release for the Iugula-Thor and Intrinsic Action collaboration, Ensemble Sacrés Garçons, released on CD by Old Europa Cafe in 1995. The album was recorded at Bass Mind in Brooklyn, by Megan Emish (Intrinsic Action/BLOODYMINDED), with contributions from Paolo Bandera (Sigillum S/Sshe Retina Stimulants). We remotely recorded a follow-up but we never quite found the magic in the mix, the running order, etc. We've revisited it in the past and maybe it's time to finally just get it done...

Ensemble Sacrés Garçons was initially billed as a collaboration between Iugula-Thor and Intrinsic Action (with support from Sshe Retina Stimulants) and we released our debut in 1995, on Old Europa Cafe, which you can stream here:
Nightmares is the synth trio of Jonathan Canady (Angel of Decay, Dead World, Deathpile, etc.), David Reed (Envenomist, Imvixor, Luasa Raelon, etc.) and Mark Solotroff (Anatomy of Habit, BLOODYMINDED, The Fortieth Day, Intrinsic Action, etc.)
