The lab at Magik Crowbar Produktionz PTY LTD is excited to announce the newest cosmic batch of complete and utter shit. These are the most recent jams, from da tapes straight to your ears, some of the latest sonic nihilism...
MC045 JUNK SICK "Rising Damp" cs (60x)
Concussed loops, conflicting mayhem, chopped up oddities - short and long, some as big as your head. Cooper Bowman and Tom Miller bump out another ~heavy~ tape after launching their first release, split 12'' lathe with legendary Japanese outfit CCCC. Heavy doses of 'Psychic Driving Tapes' and 'KFC City 3099' were consumed prior these recordings. Split with Altered States Tapes *
MC056 SEAN BAXTER + MARCO FUSINATO "Stutter 180810" cdr (30x Reissue)
After a nice evening BBQ, Sean decided to do the dishes and Marco had already started on the pots and pans. An interesting and complex scale of sound from electronic incinerator noise to percussive junk. Amazing live set captured and worth a listen. Twenty of these bad boys will be going overseas with Baxter in the near future.
MC060 SLEEPING BAG FULL OF BOYS "Sacks Full" cs (40x)
Waking up in a daze, derelict piles of trash swamp the floor, you make a path kicking the bottles over to the side and head to the bathroom still brooding with a repetitive bumping hangover. The stench of substance abuse is in the air. Bewildered to what happened the night before. You try and clean what's left of yourself up and head straight back to your room to avoid any social interaction. When you see a 90210 sleeping bag filled with objects unknown in the corner of your room. Split with Altered States Tapes *
MC0666 V/A "Atomic High" cdr (10x)
A CD-R compilation created for the State Library of Victoria and Dr. Nylstoch's Archives in the Venting Gallery vault. Selected from the more sinister lo-fi end of the collection including harsh, abstract and new age works from Bile Worship, Psychward, Trichotillomania, Scissor, Mshing and Junk Sick. All tracks previously released on labels, primarily Magik Crowbar and also Altered States Tapes and Trapdoor Tapes.
