MARSHSTEPPER (Tempe, AZ. Ascetic House. mem. of Destuction Unit)
“Marshstepper is more than a just band, they are a perfect extension of the Ascetic House collective that the members have built. In Marshstepper’s case, the band has pushed beyond simply playing music and create an eerie aura at live shows that includes performance, costume and a whole lot of fog.”
BLUE ANGEL (Ottawa, ON)

Black and White Illustrations by Raymond Biesinger
A Book Launch and Three-Week Print Exhibit November 23 – December 12, 201
Opening Night: Friday November 23rd, 2012 8pm
With a Presentation Talk and Slide Show, Drinks and DJ Skid Vicious. Books and Prints will be available for sale. Black and White Illustrations by Raymond Biesinger, the book, is a self-published 208 page 8″ square collection of black and white illustrations dating back from the year 2002 to present. The images within had been made for everything from the New York Times to Raymond’s band, the Famines, to Xeroxed zines and arts weeklies. Also included in the book: a chapter containing only previously unseen rough sketches, and a chapter exclusively holding Famines material. The cover and rear are embossed, and there are 9300 words worth of endnotes that give context to the more interesting of the images. Artist’s Statement: “I’ve held one notion close to me for more than a decade now: that we live in a fantastically rich time and place, and almost anything is possible. In that environment, the most original and interesting thing you can do is impose limitations on yourself. Likewise, we live in a time and place where decoration is king and content is out of fashion. I am a fan of the latter, and not the former.”
About Raymond Biesinger: Raymond Biesinger is a Montreal-based illustrator who spent a very long time in Canada’s west, and he’s been lucky enough to work with clients like the New Yorker, Monocle, Le Monde, Time, GQ, Wired, the Globe & Mail, etc. He’s also in a noise-garage band called the Famines, likes working in B&W best, and wishes he still owned a Xerox machine.
Boyhood is playing the Void Magazine launch party!
Ottawa! Next Tuesday!
White Lung! Hand Cream! Caymans!
Our good pals The Creeping Nobodies split up a while ago, but from the splinters come two new entities.
Caymans will start it off, which will rule!
If you are in or near Montreal you need to go to this.
It’s been a long wait, but the date is finally getting close. Very close. We’re proud to be teaming up with our RRPP buds to kick off the Ottawa Explosion Weekend with a bang. That means free pizza from them, free tapes from us. DJ Craig Peru & DJ B-RAD will be spinning weirdo punk rippers between KNIFEMARE, MANNEQUIN, MALE NURSE, HOLY COBRAS, DEMON’S CLAWS, and the VISITORS.
The show will also serve as a dual release show for Knifemare and Mannequin’s much anticipated split C30, as well as Vol.1 of the Bruised Tongue Afterburners compilation we’ve been slaving away on. More info on that to come, and we’ll post it for download super soon. If there’s still copies left after the weekend, the next few mailorders will be padded out with one of these 15-track C60s.
