A filing shelf for old archives of various related things: music, artwork, interviews and other miscellaneous items for those digging deeper. Some things are more to archive where I’ve been over the years for myself more so than anyone else.
The six year anniversary of the release of this album just sort of snuck up, and with that here’s some reflections on The Outsider In The Mirrors, released 09 February 2018 on Possession Records.
A look at the particular and problematic world of approaching cover songs, as well as a reflection on the three cover songs done by myself so far by artists Hoover, Nomeansno and Bruce Cockburn.
“Cinema Eyes” came out mid-2013 on the album Fiction Prediction, almost eight years ago. There’s a number of versions of that track that exist so here’s a retrospective.
The second album Fiction Prediction was released on this day in the year 2013. Over the past year I’ve started writing these reflective summaries of past works on their release date anniversaries so here’s my thoughts on this record.
One of a few old interviews I totally forgot about were found, including this one with a California-based webzine called He Would Rather Kill, a strongly titled, short-lived operation run by an acquaintance I had met on an A Luna Red tour in 2001.
As we are now in midst of a lockdown during a very monumental pandemic, I thought it seemed like the best time more than ever to do a very in-depth post about over 30 of my favourite and most influencial records. Get reading!
This time five years ago Radio Berlin’s three main albums, Sibling, The Selection Drone and Glass, were re-issued digitally after all being long out of print. For one month you can now download these albums for FREE.
We’re into the first month of the new year and here’s a free download of a track for those interested. A new version of the track “It’s No Laughing Matter” featuring vocals of MM Lyle (Marcel Wave).
Some More Terror, the third album, was released five years ago today on Sept 23rd, 2014. Released between Fiction Prediction (2013) and You Never Know What Might Come Next (2015), the release took a very notable sonic detour as it was a collection of semi-improvisational experiments
Well, here’s an old one. Old enough that I hadn’t heard it for over a decade and over time the memory of the track had morphed it into something quite different in my mind. “The Connection” was an outtake from the recording sessions of Radio Berlin‘s first album, Sibling.
The Measure was a short-lived Vancouver band I was in from around Summer 1997 (don’t remember which month) until around June or July of 1998. I had just turned 19 and had just moved to Vancouver.
Recently I was rolling out the shuffle mode when doing some work and a track called “Towers Above You” came on. It was an outtake that was never used from the last Radio Berlin full length, Glass (2003).
As I was moving items from shelf to shelf I became re-acquainted with the first Primes “s/t album. This was the first phase of the group in it’s more trashy, distorted, electro-punk phase.
