May News Roundup

20160515_160704Most important news is that we’re doing a live to air on FBI on the 26th of May.

You can find further details here. This is the first new music under the name Severed Heads since Op3 in 2007. It’s based on a large number of 78rpm records that I’ve cut, looped and arranged on a portable 24 track recorder (yes, there are such things these days) with some keyboards played very delicately alongside. It is destined to be a 10 inch record cut in Seattle by BUGHLT.

For the duration of the performance the radio station will be moved to Adelaide.

My submission for this years’s VIVID festival is ready to go. It features 20 screens of synthetic skies.

May other things to announce soon.

New year new logo

Welcome again to my fabulous lifestyle.

We’re back on air. Seemed as if everything was sorted, but it was soon thwarted. So I am back to give a running commentary on all things heads. If you want a more frequent updates with more bullshit then follow the Tom Ellard blog instead.

That stupidly large logo properly belongs on a new batch of custom manufactured thumb drives coming out in 2016. You liked the Rhine stick so I am going to give you USB drives for everything and up the quality. Looks like no one will ever press vinyl past 1986 so this the hardware for us youth!

But if you like old and vinyl then why haven’t you bought this yet?CV-MqEyUAAAeMa1.jpg large

I know that you may be distracted with life, surviving and all that, so I excuse you. But best to click here and get this sorted.

OK, back with more news later.

Somethings old something new 2015.

We’re starting to piece together the likely offerings for 2015. All of this is likely but I cannot say that is inevitable. There are known knowns and unknown unknowns and all of that.

Greater Reward 12″ vinyl.

333
Not this one, but one after it.

This old thing still gets some deejay culture and so we are all well pleased to say it has got its handbag out on behalf of Optimo in Scotland. I don’t believe you have to be a DJ to have this but it certainly helps.

Petrol 12″

This what comes up when you Google Petrol 12 inch.

So this was going to be the 12″ that was released by Normal Records in West Germany in 1986. But there’s so many versions of Petrol that you could do a whole album. Lordy! What will Dark Entries decide? Find out in 2015.

Clifford Darling, Please Don’t Live In The Past. 2x LP

Relive the past with this luxuriously ironic title, presented in full colour for the first time. This the album that inspired this re-issue. What will Dark Entries think of next?

Stretcher 2x LP?

Somebody is crazy enough to be talking about STRETCHING STRETCHER over 4 sides. That crazy is Medical Records but will their accountant find out in time?

Vinyl On Demand are demanding some stuff – more later.

And do not forget
