A S F / Gainmas - split 110 minute cassette tape -2012

If you have one of these limited to 20 cassettes ,from 2012 ,on Lady Anthropophagus Unincorporated,consider yourself a  ,a  ,a collector of experimental noise,and ,most of all,out the 4 bucks it cost you for this.If you can sit thru this whole thing (I can ,as I am A S F ,and I own a copy of the cassette) ,you are a champion of harsh alien sounds.The A S F  track has their earlier sound (hence the track title) ,just the highest pitched screeching ,that humans can still hear,but not animals.Gainmas turns in ,possibly,the longest and harshest track of his career (Gainmas = Dylan Houser ,he also released this tape on his label),which goes practically hand in hand with the deafen-core of A S F. PLAY AT MAXIMUM VOLUME FOR FULL EFFECT!!! Or at lower volumes,it imitates white noise ,almost relaxing,thinking backround conciousness.However you take it,Take it now!    https://archive.org/download/ASFGainmas-Split110MinuteCassetteTape-2012/ASF-GainmasSplitCassette2012.zip

The noise/experimental affair was in celebration of Dylan Houser's birthday,which was a couple days before this show.As you can see,folks came from all around Florida ,and further ,to play at the cramped,dingy,extremely dimly-lit bar ,Uncle Lou's ,in Orlando ,a stronghold for bookings of noise shows ,and other musics. I could only stay for the first half of the show,and my videos reflect that timeline. I left as Su Sous was performing.

This was the setlist:
To start the festival,the star and center of attention,the birthday-boy,whooped out a short set of irregular spasmodic jerking thrash-bot spew,while a long-haired fella,whipped his locks to and fro

BACON GREASE was up next,with a piece
reminiscent of solo bedroom band experiments,from the days of yore

Then a fella with a cello wired into a pc screen weirdness from OLA LINDEFELT

next as it got darker in the club was my pal CRUSTGIRLS,who blasted some primal noise rock

A short clip of WREN TURCO ,jabbing 80's new-wave synth memories into my brain

A strange young man with a superior moustache,finely waxed,and a chapaeu with a working light bulb stickng out the top ,sharpening a knife on a knife sharpener,wired for sound!!! also scored some choice releases from this chap!I present PIG SHRAPNEL!!
VIRGIN FLOWER ,performed some one-man Ministry/industrial-noise rock,fuckn' awesome!

Followed by my buddy Tree ,performing as DURASTATIC!   my camera was charging so ,no footage,but check youtube,someone is sure to have recorded it!

Hal,my noisy friend,did his VASECTOMY PARTY  project ,here's a short clip ,as the club grew pitch black!

SHORTWAVE FREQUENCY was up next,as I was setting up for my most fierce,brutal,noisest set EVER!  NOISEKILLR TORE THE JOINT UP!!!!
Next up ,from Georgia,was Divorce Ring   ,this is 2 clips of his set,mashed together:

There were also 3 videos made by an unlisted ,and unscheduled secret performer ,UNCUT , who made these 3 videos in his repetitive mantra style during the time the festival was going on!!

I did not get footage of Joel Switzer's band Vantage Planets or Rin Larping ,and then i hadda leave early for work in the A.M. ,as Su Sous was starting their set ,but here are some pictures from the fest! 

                                                                   Hal and Josh

                                                 some drunk guy hanging around out front. he left when the noise                                                   became so loud ,he thought U.F.O.'s were coming down!
                                                 my merch table
                                                Wren Turco during her set
                                                2 words...PIG SHRAPNEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
                                                         Me & Tree
                                               pics from Virgin Flower's set
                                                      Durastatic raised a rumble
                                                     Me & Dylan
                                                   Vasectomy Party doing his thing
                                                   me & Joel looking scary ...fuck with us...come on!
                                                the old lady bartender who would yell for orders between sets!
                                              Shortwave Frequency does it up!
                                                         Divorce Ring from GA
                                                      no cameras for Su Sous Toulouse En Rouge!
                                                         Rin Larping crazy slide guitar sounds
                                               The stuff I scored in trades (oops forgot a few)

Anyway ,it was fun ,and I wish I could get out and play more. I'd like to do some more Yobel Weenel with my boys ,and would someday like to do a gig with my band Sha Ma Mo (Dylan,Katter,& I) ,as we have never played out live. Also Dylan and I should do a set together sometime!
