Experiments In Sound & Noise Vol.1

This is a re-release of an album of mine that was originally released last year. I've only made 6 of these as it's just meant to be a nice little collectors item. It features the original album, plus a few new tracks, all as one long track. Each MiniDisc comes in a clear plastic wallet with a booklet made from old comics with a decorative letter N stamped onto the front. Inside the wallet, along with the MiniDisc, is a microscope slide, an info sheet and a small wad of monopoly money. Only three left, so act fast!

Tracklisting:
ESN1.1
Quartz
Downward Spiral
Manuscripts Don't Burn
Project Zeus
ESN1.2
Same Song (Jazz Pancake remix)
Soft Red (Hirohito) Thunder
ESN2.1
Shatner's Bassoon
Guitar Mess 1 Through 3

(this a self-release, i.e. not on FTR)

Update, November 2010

The i AM esper tapes are about half gone and the last Frozen TRASH CDrs are being sent out in the next week. The list down there on the right is generally up-to-date on what is, was and will be. Check myspace for the distro!

Coming up we have a full length CDr from Ed Wayne Lefski and a split label comp with fellow lovers of drone, Dark Meadow Recordings.

The bigcartel store (frozentendril.bigcartel.com) has most of the FTR releases for sale, but not distro stuff. Contact me if you want to buy listed distro items that aren't in the store.

Back from holiday.

Yep. Covers for all the evolv tapes are made. Yet to finish CD covers, inserts and badges. Oh boy.

To top things off, the stereo I use for tape/MiniDisc duplication is being an ass. Bare with me!

Again, final cover will most likely be blue, but I really like the look of the tape :)

FTR-04 all gone

The - x MiniDisc/CDr just sold out; thanks to Andreas from Germany for his order!

Non-label stuff

Went to an amazing gig last night (Magrudergrind, Closure plus more), nice and fast! Also managed to get a few records that'd normally cost a bit more to mailorder or I'd have to get when I'm in (continental) europe.
Spoonful of Vicodin 7"
Brutal Truth/Spazz 7"
Total Fucking Destruction/Unholy Grave 7"

LABEL STUFF:
The evolv ep is going to be 30 CDrs and 10 tapes, and each one should come with a pin badge. I'm going to have a go at the artwork when I go home in about 4 weeks.
Rough release date of August!

Finished flyer

Finished flyer! I'm going to print out a load of these bad boys in black an white soon. If you're a distro or someone who trades plenty, let me know so I can get some to you for distribution! Or if you're feeling extra generous, you could print some/post them online. Cheers

Web presence


Up until now I didn't really have a page for the label, I just dealt with it through my personal myspace account for my own music. Should be updates on here now...
