Current: May 22, 2017.

Last year, June 15, 2016, I was invited to play live in Dried Up Corpse at the Substation in Ballard, Seattle, Washington. I brought and played my cement mixer and 80lbs of river rock.













A recording of the show has now been released as a split cassette, with BLSPHM, by the venerable Dead Accents label: here

Some deets from the Dead Accents:
Two tracks from two literal monsters. A live track recorded at the Substation in Ballard from Dried Up Corpse and a new studio track from Blsphm. Edition of 50 copies. Letterpress printed with hand-set lead type and hand-carved linoleum blocks by Demian Johnston at Annie's Art & Press.
