Mondo Drag on Daytrotter

Not sure how I missed this, but headly dudes, Mondo Drag did the Daytrotter thing and it sounds fucking fantastic. Dig it here. Strangely enough, drummer Johnny is the guy who does the kinda Finster/Steve Keeneesque artwork for the Daytrotter sessions. I had no idea! Enjoy and of course buy their new record, New Rituals on Alive.

Lots of awesome mid 90s greatness in the form of Stefan Jaworzyn and Tony Irving's guitar/drums duo Ascension. Check out most of their releases on No Not Fun Not No blog. Thanks to them for posting this long out of print stuff, nice blasts of jazz/noise guitar and spazz drums. Amazing how good this stuff holds up.

A decent wrap up on them here on the Skullflower blog. Anyone have Jaworzyn's solo set on WKDU from 1996 listed on that blog? If so, please get in touch!

Yahowha 13 - Sonic Portation now on vinyl

While it has been out for a few weeks now, I seem to have neglected to mention that Yahowha 13's spacey awesome reunion album, Sonic Portation is now available on vinyl via Prophase Music.

This one still blows my mind, I constantly hear new things on each listen and the vinyl does seem to bring out some more coloring in the background. Cool black/blue vinyl with white flecks, gatefold sleeve (which makes Djin's totally out there but awesome liner notes much easier to read than the CD version), and now credited to Yahowha 13, instead of Yahowa 13... yeah! Once again, limited to 500 copies, this time actually hand numbered. Enjoy!

Don't forget to see Yahowha 13 share the stage with Acid Mothers Temple at the Alien8/Prophase night on March 17 if you are gonna be at SXSW!
