Black Leather Jesus – ‘Even Deeper’ C20 $7(US)/$9(WORLD)
Edition of 100. Punishment & sex in it’s least refined, the calling card for Black Leather Jesus and the nightmare they’ve left behind over the past 23 years. Formulated by Richard Ramirez (Werewolf Jerusalem), this was one Ramirez’s earliest concepts and foray into the collaborative “band” idea. Ramirez being the sole core member, Black Leather Jesus has had dozen of members phasing in and out of its ranks, always keeping the perverse steady had of autoerotic execution. Steady attacks of harsh noise, charging forward with each member’s contribution being piled on top of the last in a frenzied orgy of bondage electronics. Lesson learned, over and over.
Rust Worship – ‘Optimistic’ C40 $7(US)/$9(WORLD)
Edition of 70. Backwards musique mixed up in a noise car crash, cut up strands of sound are the only things Rust Worship can communicate with. Paul Haney’s solo performances resemble something mysterious and powerful, typical involvement gets brushed aside for pure immersion. Previous releases on Haney’s own Obsolete Units label as well as 905 Tapes & Tape Drift resemble Rust Worship as a marksman for sound and energy. This release catalogs 3 unique and diverse live sets by Rust Worship, first being a performance at the infamous Redlight District in far Rockaway, NY. Backend shows two performances in Ridgewood, NY included a special set from the Ende Tymes Festival in Ridgewood, NY.
