The things I do for you...

New things are coming down the pipe, and with the little bit of downtime that I have, I figured it's a good time to tell you both about it.

First, if you ordered the last two Goat Eater releases by Fecalove & Tim the Band, your order is off to the post just as soon as I have a day off.

Coming up soon are two more contrasting releases. This time we're treading into doom territory. Even though I swore that I'd never release anything metal, I'm going back on my word because this album is just so damn good. Persistence in Mourning will be releasing "A Tongue of Bone" on Goat Eater and I'm very pleased to say that It is a grim and disgusting chunk of sound that will hit you in the face like a brick covered in shit. As usual, there will be 93 copies made.

Going completely in the other direction, "Dear Dad" by Nicholas Szczepanik is, in my opinion, a drone masterpiece. This will be a split label release with Basses Frequences of France and will be in an edition of 200 copies.  

In addition to this, we have two tapes coming out. I'll apologize in advance for them being very limited but we just didn't feel that they warranted a larger release, at this time. 

The first tape is a C32 split with our very close friends of The Psychic Fare. I suggest checking out their latest release "Wet Wire. For me, this band is the true embodiment of contemporary psychedelia but, being from Humboldt County, they'd surly have an advantage over most. Some of you might remember Bandon Taylor and Brian Fulmer from one of the very first Holy Mountain releases by Plague Lounge, or maybe you don't. The Hoor-paar-Kraat track is straight absurdity, with no apologies for a lack of lucidity. Right now these are being dubbed, by hand. We're looking at an edition of around 50. 

The second, also a C32 tape, is a very special Hoor-paar-Kraat release, made to celebrate the life of someone no longer with us. "For Carroll" is comprised of two ultra minimal, barely there, pieces of sound. We will be releasing this in a much smaller edition of around 20 or so. 

Of course it goes without saying that all of these will be hand packaged by me. 

The "Eureka Tapes" (The Complete Recordings) have been mastered by Kris Lapke (Alberech & Ash Pool) and will be on their way to Joe at Small-Doses and Jerome at Basses Frequences, as they are the fine folks who will be releasing the music as a 2CD set. 

I think that's all I have to tell, at this time.

Thanks, both of you, for stopping by.

The Goat puts out

The two new Goat Eater releases are now available for order.  

Fecalove - Forever Young  
Italy's one-man, debauchery laden, masturbating disaster has come back to Goat Eater for his second full length release. Fecalove's signature cut up junk noise has only gotten better with age. This is what I'd imagine it would sound like to over-dose on viagra, cialis, levitra and vodka martinis. The usual squalling feedback and in-the-red amplified implements are all there but this release is punctuated by tense silences, off kilter tape and electronic manipulations, tortured and effects laden vocals and bass heavy rumblings. I'm not sure that I'd be comfortable saying that Nicola Vinciguerra has matured but he has most definitely grown into something new and that something is, as usual, disgusting.  

Tim the Band - Thank You Roland  
...and now for something completely different. Goat Eater has never issued anything quite so musical, until now. Tim the Band is a two piece, multi instrumental jazz outfit, that runs the gamut from free jazz to old standards to fusion and beyond. Dan Pearson and Chris Olsen have stripped down their usual truck load of instruments to just a hand-full of saxophones; soprano, tenor and baritone along with a few loop stations to create this beautiful invocation to the late, great Rashaan Roland Kirk. Loops of saxophone build into something more and more interesting as time goes by. This three track CD continues to transform and will most assuredly transfix the listener.  

Each CD is $11, postage paid, anywhere in the US. $12 to Canada and $14 for the rest of the world. Get both of them for $18, postage paid in the US. $19 to Canada and $21 for the rest of the world.

Both CDs are pro pressed and printed CDrs, packaged in the usual Goat Eater Arts style, with every attention paid to detail. They are, as usual, both limited to 93 copies.  

These items will be added to the Goat Eater Arts Big Cartel store, soon. If there happens to be something there that you'd like, please feel free to contact me at and I'll work out shipping details for you.  
If you happen to live in the New York City area, you can avoid shipping and receive instant gratification by picking these up at Hospital Productions.  
Thanks for your continued support over the years.
