Paisley Babylon Presents New Vinyl-riffic Mashup Mutations

This is not a new direction for Paisley Babylon, but it’s certainly something I’ve been doing a LOT more of lately. Inspired by the ever-growing piles of weird and WTF vinyl I’ve been collecting, I’m proud to bring you the darkly funny “Too Many Boners, My Friend”, hot out of the studio only this morning.

Amusing note: the announcer voice discussing the practice of establishing an “eyeball” was NOT manipulated to take the word “eyeball” out of context. No, my friends, that is how it actually appears on the record. Hear for yourself, and know that this track is headed for a seven-inch, so its availability as a streaming clip will be limited–it comes down once the vinyl is ready to be released.

Nurse With Wound Double CD

***UPDATE***The three-disc edition is sadly now sold out. That’s what I get for not moving faster.
Nurse With Wound Terms and Conditions Apply CD set
The wonderful Brainwashed.com reports Nurse With Wound has released a new double CD set featuring material recorded between 2008 and 2011. Exciting stuff as NWW is definitely one of the most inspirational of the groups I frequently mention here–Throbbing Gristle, Coil, Cabaret Voltaire, etc.

There’s nothing quite like the Nurse With Wound experience. It’s challenging, thought-provoking, sonically dangerous…for me personally it’s two bottles of red wine on an empty stomach for the soul. (That’s a good thing.)

The NWW release is called “Terms and Conditions Apply” and if you order from Dirtier, you get a third disc as a bonus, which is pretty damn outstanding. I’m not a shill for Dirtier, just passing the news along 🙂

Paisley Babylon and Binary Partners Show At StudioLab, Bridgeport Chicago Oct 17 2014

BIG thanks to all who came to see the three-theremin spectacle that was last night’s Paisley Babylon performance. I did the opening set as Paisley Babylon and then stayed on stage as half of Binary Partners. It was a very good night indeed and it was nearly two full hours of unusual, hallucinatory entertainment that would have pleased Timothy Leary, William Burroughs, and probably Stephen Stapleton.

Here are some images from the show, there was a full recording of both performances and that will become available at some point. Stay tuned for details.
