NEW RECORDINGS IN PROGRESS / EP TO DROP LATE THIS SPRING

We’re dropping five new tracks in digital EP format sometime in the next couple of months. Safe to say these are going to blow away all Demonstrations from the last few years, without betraying their spirit. Really proud of this work in that we’re letting the sounds breath while keeping the sonic wall. Spose it’s taking the sledgehammer to the sheetrock. 

Been working with Ramona and a new emcee. Won’t ruin too many surprises, but there will be 2 mixes of “Play Dead” - one by F. James Bardozi and another by Minneapolis-based hip hop producer Big Cats!. Details will follow here. 

(more after skull)  

We’ve refined our process a bit, brought in a few new toys and eliminated a few others - but overall, the equipment is the same. Old-ass PC and manually-mainpulated stompboxes. Become a big fan of Electroharmonix’s Screaming Tree Treble Booster and open G tuning.  But that’s neither here nor there. 

Say hello to us on Twitter, if twitter is your scene. right here.

Roman Strangle

"Roman Strangle"

They’ve made a space down in hell for your cell.
Your winning smile and shining eyes fool so well.

And you fool yourself straight to the bottom.
Yes you fool yourself straight to the bottom.

Where I stitched our arms together 
Pulled down the sun and burned you
And me

I am flying in the head you bought yourself…

I pull another knife from another back
You know I will
Light dims when you arrive
Take me in tonight
You know I will

I want you… 

And you fool yourself straight to the bottom.
Yes you fool yourself straight to the bottom.

- F. James Bardozi & Ramona Fields
