tape version of the infamous “s/t” 2xCD-R on SEA TRUE (left)
“For Venusians Only” on STENZE QUO (right)
Being stuck with a pretty decent stack of tapes filled with jams, Mike and I decided to start a new label, SEA TRUE, to put out in our own time and with no limited editions in mind all of this stuff that other players might not be into taking the risk to release… obviously, it made sense that the first Sea True tape should be a Tav release!! So Mikey made a special 50 minute mix of most of the material that was on our double CD-R from last year (shit, already a year!). Stoned DJ style of course. This is the Tav at its embryonic stage, all of the recordings are taken from the first two jams we ever did together and it’s very cosmic, very dancy, very far out stuff. Perfect music to cook to! Comes with see-through covers and you can order them through me!! Drop a line at ern_bbll(at)hotmail(dot)com if you want one!
Now, “For Venusians Only” is a near 40 minute collection of electronic mating calls through triggered synths, drum machines and effects for the intergalactic female species. Four improvisations to woo four types of Venusians that have made their way into Earth’s humanoid society, feeding off the souls n bodies of creatures like Mike and myself. This world would suck even more if they didn’t invade us, regardless of the pain n confuzion. Artwork, printing and dubbing by the one n only Sire Johann Kauth for Stenze Quo. Get in touch with him to get a copy!!!

“Dimly Lit” on FORT EVIL FRUIT
It has been quite some time since Glen n I put some energy captured on tape out there, so we both are particularly happy to share with you our new cassette album “Dimly Lit”. Its sound is a bit more sombre, tragic even, but not straying too far away from the inherent warmth of our music. Recorded under the dim light of the Smokey Room in Sint Denijs, these four improvised pieces speak of the uncertain paths we take in this cycle of our existence, like walking through fog or dark corridors, casting strange shadows in our hearts and minds. We must never lose hope in the light that is within us, no matter how faint. Magnificent artwork by Christian Schoppik, edition of 100 copies, contact Fort Evil Fruit to order!
