Surprise! We’re closing out Saturday night at the this year’s PRF BBQ West in Oakland, California. Get all of the details here. Hope to see you all there.
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
Like all of the Protons and Electrons series, this is a digital single, paired with a physical 7″ release that is available to mail order. There will be 12 of these in total. As per normal, free to listen to… $2 for a download and you can preorder the limited edition 7″ (only 300 ever!) all at the link. Spread the word around…
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.
Mastering was done at Golden Mastering between Jan 27th and Feb 3rd, 2015 by JJ Golden.
Dedicated to the memory of Clay Wofford. R.I.P. (1977-2014)
The Butch Cassidy to my Sundance Kid,
A best friend, a wild heart, an untamed beast and a cautionary tale.
You truly were the enemy of everyone, and this record… my friend, is for you.
