Wall Riders - Documents 1, 2

Well, actually, I'm having a lovely day ... thanks for asking!

I got up this morning (insert chicago blues bass line) and a certain "Roman J" (no asterisks needed btw) had left a comment in the Cremation Lily post. Being a nosy bastard, I quickly found out that it's the person that ran the Atavistic Transformations and Compulsion Rites labels. He's also the brilliant Plague Mother as well as being (at least partially) responsible for inflicting other aural atrocities on the public. He even manages to scrape enough time together to run the Harsh Truths Podcast. Turns out Mrs Inside knew about it but I didn't ... I've dived in and it's very good. Oh yeah, he's got a blog as well where amongst many treasures, he's posted The Rita's "Toe Cleavage" set that I have been looking for since what feels like forever. According to wikipedia he spends his remaining spare time helping fluffy kittens cross busy roads.

Until this morning, I had forgotten that I had this tape and was triggered because Roman has posted Document 3. I had put this into the very large Richard Ramirez side-projects sub-folders where it had lay unplayed for a long time.

However, I have been educated: "Wall Riders is an absurdly underrated project that involved contributors such as The Rita, Taskmaster, Richard Ramirez, and others - although the actual lineups for each recording are purposefully obscured as the goal of the project per Sam was "deconstructing the audio and any idea of personality behind projects."

The New Blockaders for a new and more imaginative generation if you will (or won't). Now, has anybody got Document IV?

C40 released on Harsh Head Rituals in 2007.

i love the artwork but doesn't it remind you of demons nipping off work for ten minutes to have a cigarette break?

Thx also for the link to his blog, excellent

Haha yeah
And it seems to comply with different 'smoke positions' too. The first demon from the right would rather have his cigarette alone in peace. I am like that sometimes, especially when the view is so nice like that hehe.

TTD is a great young blog, thanks for the heads up.
