ALTERITY PROBLEM - DONT HATE TO INVESTIGATE CD NOW AVAILABLE


The person who lives ethically knows that what counts is what one sees in each situation, and the energy with which he considers it, and that the one who thus disciplines himself in the most insignificant life situations can experience more than the one who has been a witness to – indeed, been a participant in – the most noteworthy events. He knows that there is a dancing place everywhere, that even the lowliest of men has his, and that if he himself so wills his dancing can be just as beautiful, just as gracious, just as mimetic, just as dramatic as the dancing as those to whom a place has been assigned to history.
            -Søren Kierkegaard

We don’t make this music because we have to or because we want it on your blog or in your tape player, or whatever. We make it because its how we communicate with each other. And we’ve made it during incredible sickness, in sadness, in ecstasy and in joy. Through the fields of millions upon billions of points of shining light, in our apartments, in our beds, on tv or on stage, we make this music. But whatever, we’ll keep making it when we’re dead. We don’t make it to get recognized. Recognition comes easy for us. When Jones left the block the proprietor of Depanneur St Henri (Cazelais and Desnoyers) gave him a pack of smokes on the house. Recognized! When Jones rolled on the new block they were asking for him at the padaria within a week. When we order our Zataars in Arabic they speak back in Arabic. Jones once thwarted an armed robbery in downtown Ottawa and was recognized as a hero in grand ceremony.  We’re recognized. Paid? We’ve never been paid. We don’t care. Jones got a job dialling. Weren’t paid to sing at St. James United Church ever. We don’t do it to meet girls. Have you met Ivy? If you had, you wouldn’t even ask. Besides we’ve necked while listening to Physical Graffiti, the best Zep record, so really would we even need ‘em?  We just make the music because that’s how we communicate with each other and solve the alterity problem. Feel me?  - Jones

Available on cd only. 6$ + shipping and handling, Canada Post prices, sorry.

NEW DRAINOLITH K7 on AMERICAN TAPES


New Drainolith cassette on American tapes...available at Americantapes.bigcartel.com  This material is all from the same era and in some cases same sessions as the Hilux cassette. Most of it was used as the score to Jean Bourbonnais' film La Mort Des Soleil. Tons of weird edits/found sounds/sampled heat and general tomfuckery. this sub-underground generation's Paul's Boutique.

NEW SUPER LIMITED THAMES VOLUME XIV




Proud to announce the first Thames release since Vol XIII on Brise-cul Records. Vol XIV finally reveals some of the secret bunker work Moskos and Hargreaves had engaged in between 2008-2009. Those heady days. Includes the first song qua song since Stand up For Power and the studio outtake from the forthcoming American Tapes 7" as well as a third piece composed waay back in 2008 which briefly circulated as an internet phenom. Thames was always a band without a context but here, it feels, as if the context has finally caught up with Thames. Super limited avail. at the Toronto and Montreal shows. If any copies remain I will make them available for mail order.
