Graduating from Clocks to Watches (Eureka Tapes Vol. II) is almost here. The above design was handled by our good friend Brett Slutsky (yes, that's his real name) over at Acid Casualty Records and the artwork was executed by Anthony Mangicapra. On the subject of Acid Casualty, they will be releasing a split C15 between Last and Hoor-paar-kraat within the next few months. Last is pure harsh junk-noise from sunny Miami, FL.
We're still waiting on the test pressings for the A Doorbell of Earbows for Brefix LP. No signs of it just yet. More news as and when it comes.

To all parties interested in submitting work to the Goat Eater Arts Collective;
I am pleased to have received so much feedback to my original announcement.
I promise to be in as direct contact as possible with any and all artists who chose to present their work to Goat Eater, from this point forward. Goat Eater Arts has decided to open itself up to being more than simply a vehicle for Hoor-paar-Kraat, related parties and various incarnations. We feel that our collective experience can only be a benefit to us and the artist we'll be working with.
Since Goat Eater Arts had begun we have been continually exposed to an exhausting amount of beautiful music and feel that it is time to explore higher ground by releasing the work of other talented artists.
We are currently looking to release four full length CDrs, of which we already have one planned, within the next 3 or 4 months time. In addition to this we are planning a 3 or 4 cassette set with our friends at Acid Casualty Records from Miami, Florida. For this we will be giving each artist a side of a 30 minute cassette. That artist may use their 15 minutes in any way they see fit, be that a single track or many and we accept music of any and all genres. The inspiration for this particular piece comes from the old G.R.O.S.S. Records sets, that some of you may be familiar with. We are very excited to put into motion what has been talked about for quite some time.
If you are familiar with our rather small back catalog you will know that Goat Eater does it's best to handle each and every release with the utmost care. Everything is done by hand. We are a label owned and operated by working artists and seek to rechampion archival quality works. All we ask is the same in return of artists we choose to work with.
Goat Eater Arts has no interest in owning the rights to any work released on it's imprint. If the artist decides, at a later date, to re-release the material on another label or in another format, they are always free to do so.
Our preferred method of submission is to receive a hard copy of work, either intended for release or indicative of the works you plan to create for said release. Please send CDrs to the following address.
