Tyger Beat

Salty and sweet. People with stereo hearing dug it.

If you took any pictures of Psychedelic Horseshit or Times New Viking we'd love to see them.

Lot's of shows in the next few months. Some records and probably some tapes too. Everyone's doing everything with everyone and upping the ante.

velvet underground 1967
velvet underground

Here's this new Velvet Underground bootleg from '67 that's been driving the internet wild. The first track is a completely unreleased song and it's real good. I wonder why they never put it on a record. This recording documents the first ever live performance of "Sister Ray." The only info I can find on this thing is from the blog I downloaded it off of, so here's that: Dead Flowers

and here's the record: live at the gymnasium

Tampa folk keep it real in Miami:

boulders - "don't go breaking my heart" 2008

New e.p. from Sarasota's Boulders. 2/3 of the time this guy plays in bands with animal names. This recording we'll call "creep shit from Florida." Sense the tsarcasm? New mantras for the generation who figured out how to use Gameboys as rock instruments, not that there's any console action on this recording, though there is a resonance with "pong." The last song sounds like the least precious Beat Happening song you'll ever hear.

don't go breaking my heart

"I originally made 25 copies to hand out at Dave from Andros Rex's birthday party and to girls I like. I ran out in a really short period of time and other people asked me about it, so I'll probably make another batch sometime soon. The EP comes with an 8-page zine. I'm not charging any money for it. This is my second EP and I already have material recorded for a third one, tentatively titled 'Love has Gone Away'."

Here's an e.p. Tom and Patrick brought with them for Saturday's show at New College. The songs are tweaked but not frenzied; choppy vocal loops, pulsing electronics, glitchy repetition that will make you light headed.

throwback jam

skeleton warrior live @ club envy, "silence fest," sarasota fl, 2005

I always thought this video was shot by Andrew Chadwick but he stops the amp from falling at the end, so I don't know who's behind the camera. If you know, drop a line to

skeleton warrior download series finale

skeleton warrior live @ international noise conference 2008

You can only see Kipp and Erica, but you can hear Jimmy on synth and Tim on Gameboy.

Here's a live set from a house party this past January: 01/05/08 (recorded by La Fours)

The line up is Jimmy on synthesizer, Kipp on guitar and Erica on drums. The sound is representative of the styles they've been exploring most recently. After a prolific summer, Skeleton Warrior was on pause while most of its members were scattered across North America and Jimmy was standing in line behind Brian Eno in London. They reunited in January and now the line up is Erica on drums, Kipp on guitar, Tim on violin and Gameboy and Jimmy on synthesizer (but that's liable to change at any second). 3/4 of the band lives out in the boonies of Myakka City, FL. They have a lot of open land, cows, spiders, scorpions, peacocks, a barn, inside the barn a ledger from the 70s with the names of all of the pigs that lived there, etc. They found a wishbone on the top of the fridge that crumbled into dust, divorce papers in the closet and a rusty knife on the windowsill. You can hear all of this in the new Skeleton Warrior.

Cephia's Treat #52. We're not putting it up for download because its still in print. You can buy it on the cheap here: Cephia's Treat. Skeleton Warrior (here just Jimmy and Kipp) at its most haunted; dark, pulsing, maybe even evil; Psych, the clenched jaw. Long extended jams that hold your attention with dynamic, evolving intention and craft.

"The Warriors wandered the desert, dragging their luggage behind them. However, they weren't looking for water, they were in search of the perfect basement to record in and Black Logan was to lead them to it. By the time he appeared they were near death but the desert sun was forgiving that day and soon their bags were unpacked beneath the baked sand. The univox drops, the wires pop and all that thirsty moaning is still giving nightmares to the rattlesnakes and scorpions that remain." - Cephia's Treat

Skeleton Warrior / Right Arm Severed / Loop Retard Summer 2007 CD-R

Good God Energy Chronicles #3. "Culled from a large quantity of sessions we did that summer, this 45 minute track was recorded live, entirely improvised and practically unedited, unlike the Summer 2007 double CD-R which came from the same sessions but had much more of a "studio as instrument" mentality. This CD-R was for our Summer 2007 tour with Right Arm Severed and Loop Retard. The line up was Kipp, Tim and Jimmy."

diversity - 2005
skeleton warrior

"This album comes from many different times, places, combinations of members, and includes both improvisation and practiced songs. The line-ups include Kipp, Kipp and Jimmy, Tim and Jimmy, and Tim, Kipp and Jimmy. Some of the recordings were done in New College's B Dorm, others in Jimmy's bedroom in Orlando and Kipp's house in Syracuse, NY. The record reflects the "diversity" of people and places involved, as opposed to Bearly Legal, which really reflected the spirit of a few days in the garage, or Black Logan reflecting the vibe of that dingy basement in Syracuse.

It was recorded for our winter tour in 2005 with Whats yr Damage? and Mr. Transylvania. The original packaging had a dog farting out sound waves on the cover, a stamp that Tim made. This was the first time that we began playing with Tim, who added a tape delay he made, an old audio oscillator, and a bunch of other random shit. This was a phase of the band where Jimmy began using Gabriel's violin. We started using tapes more, a fancier drum machine, and some small audio alarms Jimmy picked up at Sarasota electronics (the twinkling electronic sounds heard on track eight, accidentally happened upon when he cracked one open and it started sputtering stuff out. He bought the alarms to make contact mics out of, and it ended up accidentally yielding those cool sounds). Also, this was the first time we used real drums."

skeleton warrior download series

Over the next week we'll be uploading select material from the Skeleton Warrior discography. The uploads will be chronological and focus on out of print material and recent live recordings. Skeleton Warrior is currently a 4 piece living in Sarasota, Florida. They have a split 7'' with Pharaoh Faucett coming out real soon.

bearly legal - 2004
"Bearly Legal"

Recorded by Jimmy and Kipp in the Schaus family garage, released by Black Lakes. "We used all the instruments we bought after we decided that we wanted to start a band, the foundation of our sound: the old moog and drum machine, a sampler and a bunch of pedals. We never really had a sound in mind, just equipment, and I guess a sound was molded out of that and a desire to fuck around." Bear drawings by Kipp, collage art by Jimmy.
