Drainolith - This bodiless creation ecstacy is the cunning in cd-r

Third in the Drainolith dedicator series, final and third installment after "Easing out the Imaginary Line" and "Cutting Squares." This album came out of a flurry of recording activity that also birthed the limited "Synth Tape" and all the raw material for a collaboration with William Davidson. Recorded on the humble Drainolith Mobile Recording Unit which has also lovingly documented Thames, The Unireverse, Dreamcatcher, Kats, Moskos/Taylor Cream Valley Unit and Metis Yetis. All songs, or covers, all totally fried. Includes the hit "Gross Ginger Beer." Sounds like nothing else in the Draino discog. Reference in your library: Derek Bailey's ballads record, Corpse Love, Eddy, Greek avant guitar jerk-off specialist Nicki Skopelitis' real world albums (but god forbid you should ever have to listen to this brutality.) SOLD OUT

Kubelka "Midget Bikini/Puh" cd-r

Kubelka - Midget Bikini/Puh - cd-r: Reissue of a late nineties Ku release. Much debate as to how many of the original casettes were made. Peacock claims two, Damage claims more, Moskos claims lots more....truth lies in betwixt. These were rehearsals for an opening slot for the No Neck Blues Band and Sabir Mateen at Lucky Ron's on Rideau St. Recorded, literally, in a fucking barn in the franco-Ontarian town of Bourget. So many hilarious stories abound from these days: Taylor being accused of shitting in dude's field, Gerry's wife as infinite sexual fantasy, Gerry's Eagles cover band, the G-Strings, Gerry's closest reference point for the Ku being Avalon by Roxy Music ect. Features extended band with Damage on synth and some weird dude Taylor knew playing wobbly, almost harmolodic sounding axe. Moskos had re-read an interview in FE with the Tall Dwarves over and over and had all the New Zealand slang down, thus the Puh reference. Midget Bikini is surely the true beginnings of the New Humour and certainly one of the absolute few Ku tracks with vocals. Ottawa avant-collegiate-guard at its most sparkling, shiniest best. 6$
