It is true! Boston noisenik afficianados I Heart Noise are premiering a song off of “The Art of Murder”.
Their first premiere ever, EVER! What a premiere too, since this specific one also features Mr. Buzz Osborne on backup vocals.
What? Yes. Buzz.

Atom 4 of the Protons and Electrons series is now available. The Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends side is a song called “Paved Age”, which is a song that is ostensibly about the founding of the Interstate Highway System.
The other side features the mighty Nonagon, with their song Saffir-Simpson.
Atom 4 of Protons and Electrons features the inimitable of Chicago, a scrappy and joyous noiserock/post-punk trio whose heart and tenacity have been as inspiring as their songs. A particularly blisteringly and badass set in 2014 that reminded me of everything I loved about making music was the clinching factor for putting together what would become Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends. I’m not saying you can blame them DIRECTLY, but… partial blame, sure. -Conan
