Special thanks are in order for superkewl deejay Stanley Robinson, who has been regularly featuring tracks from the new Testube release Unintentional on his excellent podcast show, titled Re:automation Radio. Stanley's been a stalwart of the underground industrial community for some time now, and we first crossed paths in the late nineties when I submitted music to his Wet-Works Zine. His radio show and label (Decisive Sound Records) further that tradition of exposing unique music to the scene. keep reading »
The new Testube full length titled Unintentional has just been released! Featuring remixes from Type001, Unterm Rad, R010R, Justin Lassen, LowHero.DLL, and In Virus Tandem, this limited release serves as the perfect companion piece to the 2010 Testube album Off Purpose. Also included are several new tracks by Testube and a collaboration with Michael Lauter (White Trash Compactor). The album is available for download from all popular online retailers, as well as the Testube music store. A limited boutique CDr version is also being sold via Glim Records, with unique hand-assembled packaging and a "spontane" game spinner, designed to intentionally incite the unintentional in your life.
The new Pixies cover song "Wave of Mutilation" that I recorded to help with the Japanese Red Cross Society's tsunami relief is now available! You can hear a preview clip of the track, or purchase it directly from the official Testube music store. The song is also making its way to larger online retailers like iTunes, eMusic, and Amazon and should be available for purchase from those sites soon.
Please help spread the word, and don't forget to also donate directly to one of the more reputable charitable organizations assisting the victims of the tsunami. Thanks! keep reading »
I've just completed recording and mastering a brand new cover version of the classic Pixies track "Wave of Mutilation", as made famous by the popular eighties flick about pirate radio Pump Up the Volume! The slow and melancholy "UK Surf" version of this song has always been one of my favorite songs from the Pixies, and the Testube version stays fairly faithful to the mood and delivery of this tasty soundtrack dirge, while giving it a more electronic contemporary spin.
The new cover version of "Wave of Mutilation" should be available online as a digital single by the end of the week; I'm just waiting for mechanical licensing clearance, since it is a cover song. All proceeds will go to the Japanese Red Cross Society to assist the victims of the recent horrible tragedies in Japan. Please keep the Japanese people in your thoughts. I'll post a follow-up when the digital single goes live. keep reading »
