Periscope Breath

Over the past summer I decided to start recording non-song oriented stuffs, and easily realized that I would be able to churn these out much quicker than proper songs, therefore I decided to turn this into a separate side project.  Obviously I made quite a band name departure here, harhar.
Each "album" is released on cassette in micro edition...I have 4 left of the 13 of the first tape "Turdle-Head Blues" and 9 of the 10 for "Schwalbe Messerschitt."  Each is 30 minutes.  Or if you feel like trying it out before making the plunge, both are available for "name your own price" AKA free download at:
This is meant to be background music, noise mood music, if you will.  Short samples will be to go start to finish while focusing your attention on anything else.  S.M. is almost entirely guitars, with some samples and a detuned harp (on one track), and T.H.B. is mostly guitars, some bass and samples.  No effects other than distortion, reverb, and tremolo on one song per tape.

KD's 1st Video

Two nights ago, my buddy and KD live band member Mark, over borsht and beers wondered why KD had never made a video.  I remembered that my old digital photo camera had a video setting (think I bought it off a crackhead in 2005).  So with no ideas as to what the video (or which song) was gonna be, no editing software, let alone knowing how to use editing it is!  A small square in the middle of the screen.
Lo-fi-Lo-res not know how.

Also this will be the lead off track on the delayed release of the "Normal Time" 7"
Due out late 2012 on Uuhngreh Schpuggenuh Records.

No more free downloads here, buddy!

I recently decided to stop giving away free downloads and to leave most of this stuff unavailable.  I plan to make a Bandcamp page soon and have cheap downloads of certain albums available there.

New 7" soon

New 3 song 7" on Michael's homemade record cutter coming up at some point in the next month or two.  We're also planning on starting a very small label.

Bi-Monthly Free Digital Releases

Midlesbrough, England's Ack! Ack! Ack! Records recently began posting bi-monthly free downloads on their bandcamp page, and I'm very proud to say that KD's "Bez Konca" was the 2nd selection. The focus so far seems to be lo-fi, post-punk, garage, noise, off the beaten path goodness. Excellent releases so far, too. This label, as well as Year Of Birds (label/store owner's fantastic band) are well worth keeping an eye on, and with two free releases a month, who can complain?
