NEWS YOU CAN'T USE

Hey! Here’s an update on where ya boy is at and when and what and why:

VAGUEBOOK THE FIRST: Currently I’m working on a really cool project for a fellow musician. It’s amazing to me that not only do people like my artwork but they want me to draw stuff for them. This project will be really cool and I cannot WAIT to reveal it to you. Yeah, it’ll be worth it. Trust me.

VAGUEBOOK THE 2ND: I’m also doing art for the video of an artist I truly admire. I can’t reveal it yet but damn son when it’s done you will be as amazed as I.

BUNNYHEAD: Yeah, I’m still working on it. 10 issues in all. Currently the mini-comic and album I’m doing for Component must be done before I resume work on Issue 4. “Enter The Doom Pit” will be out in early 2020. Given that it will be over a year since issue 3 expect a significant improvement in the artwork. I’ve been sketching up a storm and busting my ass to fully realize this weird tale. I want it to blow your mind. And it will.

MUSIC NEWS: As always I’m making bleeps and bloops and squeaks and squoops. It’s happening in lots of different ways and places. In order:

BRITTNEY SPARSE: SNACKS EP. The mistress of disaster techno is back with two songs. Well, three if you buy it through my bandcamp because Condition Human gets all the money. And so do I. Expect lots of 909 and bass.

CATHODE RAY TUBE: NULL CONTACT EP. Yep. 5 songs. Very pumped about this. I’m covering some newer, weirder ground and I want to inflict it all on you. Lots of good stuff up in this bidnatch.

CATHODE RAY TUBE: DARK ROADS FOR THE YOUNG MAGUS. Very, very, very excited about this new full album! This album will drop in November 2019 on Truth Table out of Sheffield, UK. This is as close to a paean to my heroes Autechre and Cabaret Voltaire and you can get! As with the Null Contact EP there’s a lot of new stuff happening. Part of it is a return to melody and “songs” so to speak. The other is embracing more chaos and weird tunings.

That’s it for now. Keep an eye out for release dates for all of the above.

Be well and be weird!

Been a long time since I blogged and rolled oh ohoh!

Whoa. Hey. Where you been?

A lot of stuff happening here at CHizzle Rizzle Tizzle HQ. To wit:

BUNNYHEAD: I'm hard at work on my first ever comic book/graphic novel whatever you want to call it. As I'm writing and drawing/inking/coloring it on my own time and dime it's double duty. I love it! I'm aiming to release it in early June. "Bunnyhead: A Tale of The Corrupted Age" is the story of a lone robot, scouring the wastes of his desolate world in search of others like him. All this while fighting off invaders from the sky. It's a pretty dope tale as afar as I'm concerned and I think you'll agree. Here's the most action packed panel so far. It contains 0.00% spoilers.

Ooohh! In yo face, Hogbot!

Ooohh! In yo face, Hogbot!

CATHODE RAY TUBE: I've been busy musically. Yeah you know it. Recently Component Recordings has released my latest album The Void And Other Structures. Not to be a braggart but it's my thirty-first album. I think. Anyway I think it's pretty badass and I bet you will, too. Check it:

Other than that I'm a walk the dog, play Fallout and watch TV type of guy. Hope all is well with you.

"DOGJAW" VIDEO

I made a video for the song DOGJAW off my Component Recordings release "Life Among The Rust." Fans of eefing will enjoy it as will those fond of psychedelics.
