I have no fucking idea...

You ever sat there and thought that you have got just about everything you want? And then, without actually doing anything, it all turns to shit? I'm in the middle of that delightful situation and to be honest I have no idea how it is going to pan out.

Either way, there is no happy ending. It will either be misery for a long time or catastrophic in the short term and then things will get better. Suffice to say, my motivation to keep the blog updated is not there.

I'm assuming that I will be back at some point...


Alleypisser‎ - Kvalt

The Winters In Osaka links appear to have disappeared. Obviously, this is a royal pain in the arse for all of us. Anyway, whilst I'm re-doing that...here's this.

Denmark's Mikkel Rørbo (who also runs the excellent Dokumentarisk Agenda label) in action as Alleypisser‎.

This is a 7" and C36 set that was released about 15 months ago on Italian label A Dear Girl Called Wendy.

The Nordic countries in particular and Europe in general have simply been running away with things for quite a while now! Well for me at least. This is another milestone. The more you listen to it, the more it gives.



Winters In Osaka‎ - Secret Roads

3" cdr released on the mighty At War With False Noise in 2007.

Winters In Osaka‎ are a rolling collective of noise artists revolving around a Chicago/California axis. With due apologies to those I don't mention...they include (at various points) Mike Finklea (aka Striations), Andrew Lippoldt (aka Persistence In Mourning), Nick Dellacroce (who is a member of Bongripper) and Mackenzi Chami (aka Bachir Gemayel, Koufar, Insurgent and Crown Of Cerberus).

Hopefully, that has piqued your interest because they have been ripping up trees over the past year. Check out the Celestial Hieroglyphs split LP with Fossils on Cardinal Records, the collab Lp with Plastic Crimewave and the collab CD with Astro on Dismantle Records. Well, to be honest, check it all out!



Bongripper & Winters In Osaka‎ - Meat Ditch

3" cdr self-released by the mighty Bongripper in 2008.



Winters In Osaka - Molded To Crawl

2009 release on Haunted Hotel Records.
