For this, their first release, the ironically named Towering Heroic Dudes were Neil Vendrick, Roxann Spikula, and Rachal Spikula before evolving into a revolving line up of c'mon and hit this friends and associates. CDr released on Obsolete Units in 2007.

Relay For Death - Birth Of An Older, Much More Ugly Christ




Intentionally subdued rumbling noise from Rachal Spikula and Roxann Spikula who were both in Boyzone (obviously not that crate of cretins) and Towering Heroic Dudes. This is an LP released on Hanson Records in 2010. As far as I know, the only other RFD release was one of RRRon's Recycled tapes ... whilst I have a stack of that series, I don't have that one. If you do then please pass it our way.

Relay For Death - They Are Heating Up The Ovens Get The Fuck Out Now




For such an up-front title you would expect this to be right in your face. It is no such thing. There are a lot of spaces left and if this was just left to play in the background you would have a hard time trying to figure out why you felt this sense of quiet panic. It will be due to this CDr released on No Rent Records in 2011.

Secret Abuse - Craftsman's Rhythm




A 7" lathe cut released on Folk Tales in an edition of 30 in 2010. The sound of the format only adds to the sense of decay and disappearance.

Secret Abuse - Master I Have Desire - Young Pig Vol. 2




You've met Jeff Witscher on here before. This time he is under the crackling noise guise of Secret Abuse. Rather predictably, it's excellent. This is also a C30 released on IDES Recordings in 2007.

Lefthandeddecision & Feverdreams - Split

Lefthandeddecision (and later, The Cherry Point) were a great 7" band. He made many singles and split singles, and I think the short duration works in the music's favor. Get in, blast like hell, get out. This 7" came out on Troniks in 2001 in a relatively healthy edition of 200 copies.

Comforter vs. Lefthandeddecision - Split




You may be forgiven (but not by me) for thinking this was Barbra Streisand and Jesus performing a Titanic tribute. Fear not! It's Phil sharing a split CDr with Andrei Alexeev released on Spirals Of Involution (which is run by Andrei and Alexander Alexeev) in 2003.

LHD were John Wiese and the left handed decision maker Phil Blankenship and here they share a vinyl LP with Jeff Plummer. It was jointly released on Phil's Troniks and Jeff's Truculent Recordings in 2004. It's great. Obviously.

Lefthandeddecision & IMPAXIS - Mock Motion (Edit)/Powertripping (1-4)

This split tape is the only recorded evidence of the existence of IMPAXIS, so I have no idea who they are/were. It was the 4th ever release on the Troniks label, 50 copies made in 1998.
