I contacted Tommy T. yesterday to inform him that I have withdrawn Testube from the DSBP roster. Unfortunately, it was part of a reply to one of his "sheeple" rants, and I said a few things that I probably shouldn't have.

I spent most of this morning rearranging and cleaning up the studio. Previously I had just thrown most of it together and did my best to make it so that all of my gear was accessible.

I have just been informed by Christopher John that Justin Butts, one of the original founding members of the band I, Parasite passed away on Saturday. Justin's footprint can be heard on early I, Parasite tracks and his unique creative approach to songwriting will be missed by many in the industry.
By popular request, I have decided to re-issue all of the old Testube recordings that were sold on UEF Records in digital format. Lower hosting costs, high speed internet access, and my newfound understanding of the PayPal API system have finally made the possibility of full album downloads feasible. 1998's release titled Post-Apocalypse is now available as a digital download for only $5. All tracks were encoded as 192kbps MP3 files and the purchase includes JPG artwork cover and tray card files. keep reading »
