Thomas Carnacki Antler Submission Number 14

The Carnacki submission to the Big California Instagon-instigated download compilation. (Important restriction: each piece had to be under 2 minutes in length.) The compilation will ultimately be available as a pay-what-you-like affair (all the way down to nuthin', if you're feeling like a freeloader) on the Instagon bandcamp page. This piece is primarily comprised of (plundered from?) work I'd initially done for a Bay Area production of Tom Stoppard's "Travesties" many many years back, now... a play that includes Tristan Tzara (and Lenin and James Joyce) amongst its dramatis personae, which inspired the vaguely spamsodic quality of portions of this piece.

Antler Three, Prong Fourteen (#64)

irr. app. (ext.)Unappealing Propositions From An Impenitent Poo-Hoarder

A satisfyingly squishy improvisation built on top of extracts from a new piece recently created for the forthcoming expanded download-version reissue of 'Perekluchenie'. So there.

In The Black Seat

This is a track by Third-Eye Tractor (W.A.Davison) composed/recorded in Nov. 1994 (based partly on a recording by G.C.Denton and W.A.Davison from 1987).

May we suggest a new manoeuvre
Over the hill, and no one in the driver's seat
This cart is bleeding fast
But it won't go far
With us in the Black Seat
With us in the Black Seat

Greetings from the Northeast Quadrant,

Back home, as the photo will reveal. It has been many days without even a peep from these noisy fingers. My apologies. Internet connectivity has been elusive during my travels. Nevertheless, here are some of my findings from other lands.


At Jennie Richie Presents:
Cameron Michael Nichols-Rage

In honor of our friend Cameron's 3rd Birthday this past week (end o' July), At Jennie Richie presents two short recordings of Mr. Funpants doing what he does best: having fun.

First up is a jam between Cam and his dad, wm.Rage (of Blue Sabbath Black Cheer), on Cam's "Wall Noise", a colorful percussion wall of pots, pipes, saw blades, a tire wrench, a spring, and random pieces of metal, etc, built by Cam's old man in their backyard.

Then a quick and rough version of the Itsy Bitsy Spider, performed as Solo Voice & Drums.

Cameron's CD, entitled "Let's Play!", is available here:
Cameron Michael Nichols-Rage "Let's Play!"
Cameron plays the drums and sings a little bit, collaborating with AJR & Eriijk Rêssler, irr. app. (ext.), Alvarius B, Geoff Walker, Mason Jones, and more good folks. Good fun.
All CD sales include a Hand-printed card of thanks from Cam.

You can also check out his bandcamp page here: !!!! to purchase the audio in however digital form you would like.



Still suckin' in the smog & dull heat.  We've got the open-jaws,  'just waiting for the connections to become available.  Departures...  We'll be waiting in the bar.

Howdy one and all. It's been a slow spring -- dodging snow pellets, hugging daffodils, and listening for lonely peepers in the woods. Also 'been doing a bit of cleaning & restructuring, and so here are some of the results: the crunch of glue-transfer LPs, b'zap of homemade pickups, and musique concrete via cassette loops.
