Cate and Sam grace the cover of Battalion of Saint’s latest vinyl release. These new tunes will be extra special due to what is on the outside: us. That’s right, amazingly talented artist Lee Ellingson, whom Sam and I have formed a very creative bond with via the internet, rendered us in the commissioned artwork. Can you say punk rock?

The song I Want To Break Free by Queen sums up exactly how I feel right now…
In other news, did you know, this video was banned by MTV, among other stations, in 1984 due to the “content” which was actually a spoof on a British soap opera and misinterpreted by/in the US as something “obscene?” The ban was lifted in 1991 by VH1 when they aired the video during a special devoted to Queen hosted by guitarist Brian May called My Generation. The song was written by bassist John Deacon and played at most of their live performances. Despite the video block, the song never took quite as well in the States as it did in other places when released. Where it was loved and the video laughed within the UK, the song took on “new” meanings of freedom from oppression in South America and South Africa. I Want To Break Free was seen as an anthem in those parts for those combating oppression and when Freddie Mercury took the stage in 1985 at a show in Rio de Janeiro in a wig and falsies, the crowd threw rocks at him, not wanting their sacred hymn to be disgraced. Understanding yet still puzzled, Mercury removed the female parts which calmed the “Queen church goers.”

Sweet little video I edited up from The DTEASE show in Ventura, CA this past Friday September 12th. Footage thanks to Ingrid Luna who agreed to film with my camera (and keep it safe) without hesitation.
The new song “Fuck The World To Death” is about aliens coming down to Earth and well, fucking us humans to death. It has a Plan 9 From Outer Space feel to it, except rays of cum shots don’t travel quite at the speed of light, thus make for a more graphic and slower climactic final destruction of Earth. I’m hoping to incorporate some stage props and performance a la Ed Wood’s cleverly cheap and resulting goofy yet a more layered feel of depth. I’ll let you know when I’m having a silver spray painting party of disposable party goods and you can help me hang them on fishing line.

The Seaboard is now leveling the playing field between the “at your fingertips” capability for sound manipulation utilizing pressure sensitivity of many traditional instruments and that of the keyboard. The keys are all black and made entirely of rubber and allow for physical techniques unable to be rendered using a traditional yet limiting keyboard. The continuous “board’ is pressure sensitive allowing the user to manually manipulate volume and timbre as well as effectively emphasize pitch. Furthermore, the device is not limited to default presets for the Seaboard GRAND software allows for custom adjustment of them as well a complete creation Continue reading “The Latest Musical Game Changer: The Seaboard” »
