               fact096                     deceiver / developer             -                   "split"                      c10
water torture / v.o.c. bassist matt (phil) goodrich's brutal hnw project deceiver drops a 5 min sandblaster of low end wall pummel. on the flip side developer answers the inertia with a clusterfuck of light speed breakneck heavy cuts, silence, and weirdness.

            fact097              plagues / developer               -              "split"                             c10
p.e. master brandon hill bestows upon us a malicious maelstrom of total brutality. this track sounds like the audio representation of pure hell.  developer's b side while a mess of cut up harsh weirdness, still seems to carry over the longing vibe from the a side via the beach memory at the end.

              fact102               thirteen fingers / developer                -             "split"                c10
two short side long stabs of brutal cut up harsh noise from two of americas finest. side a, thirteen fingers hits us with "massacre" a harsh glitching hic-up of crushing, unrelenting harsh noise. on the b side developer deliver a mile-a-minute cut up of harsh noise, filter madness, percussion, fucked up loops and squeaky doors.

        fact104                    matthew reis              -           "malignant slumber "                    art zine 
this is the first collection of collage works by sound and visual artist matthew reis. best known for his sonic work as developerand teeth collection or his work with such diverse musical groups wasteland jazz ensemble,humane qunea orchestra, altars, footbinder, ohio unsemble, muck, heart of the whore, black almas, etc or remix work with +hirs+, water torture, hyrrokkin and others, he has just as long a history of making covers flyers and personal works. while co-running the epicene sound systems label reis created the covers for the majority of the 100+ cassette and cdr releases for epicene's side label ESR. running the factotum tape label on his own ever since epicene's closure, reis has either curated or created the art and layouts for the entire catalog (also at 100+ releases). this collection is comprised of tape and cd-r covers, work from other out of print zines, personal works, and images originally made for flyers going as far back as 1999.

          fact105              developer & tinnitustimulus              -            "remixes"                 c30
large amounts of raw un cut audio was exchanged via email. lots of techniques of cutting and pasting were then applied. loops were made, sounds were treated. and the end results.. two side long slabs of 
showcasing each artist ability to make all sound there own by perverting the other artist original sound sources for their own pleasure. and thankfully ours.

            fact107                    rowlands_bobby            -           "2nd"                    c90
2nd c90 from the men behind dayton cut up soloist developer and whoracle of delco, slow it down and weird it out. while echoes of the super crushing harshness found on the first tape can be heard, they decided to stretch there legs out on this one. melting string sections, ghost radio frequencies, raked leaves, tension you can cut with a knife make up the brutal beauty of this barrage of what the fuck.

facialmess / developer split. newest factotum tape.

 photo 4a083b29-bb22-4cb7-9204-3c1a6acdff26_zps8686ceef.jpg

                                fact095       facialmess / developer - "split"     c40
not much needs to be said. three brutally clinical harsh noise cut ups from facial mess, one side long track of no sound is innocent harsh noise cut up from developer. two sides of the coin. two takes on the similar styles. both hit like a ton of bricks.

                                                fact096     developer / deceiver           c10

                                               fact094     rowlands_bobby - "s/t"        c90
tapes, minimal electronics, found objects, homemade instruments, small motors, and field recordings are the tools at hand in the improv repertoire of rowlands_bobby. a newish duo of dayton mainstays daniel downing (whoracle of deco, vukmir vukmir) and matthew reis (developer, ab duo). mixing elements of free improv, a very punk take on musique-concrete and frequent trips to the hardware store, rowlands_bobby uses one hand to flip switches and the other to give someone the finger.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

               fact093     peter j woods free jazz ensemble - "without under or gone"       c35
another release of tough as fuck free jazz, sitting nicely on the shelf with other factotum jazz gods the ames room and aperiodic. this time coming from milwaukee's peter j woods and co. recorded by reed man jason wietlispach, and rounded out by ryan bollis and patrick haga (both on drums) and mr. woods on bass and bibletron (an electronic device built inside a hollowed out bible, built by dan or earth). this is some serious heavyweight, muscle flexing jazz. think early last exit, then add more weight. 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                             fact092     ab duo / proportions - "split"      c40
two dayton duos, the long running ab (eli caudill and matthew reis (developer)) and the newer group of proportions (jonathan barajas (okto media, foresight, authority etc) and ryan mattox). ab drop a weird one, even for them, with everything somehow drenched in tape warble, bells, found tapes of speeches, minimal electronics and mutated guitar all ebbing and flowing. the b side is a much darker affair, drones and distant clangs, subtle electronics, and whispered disembodied voices. proportions take things up a notch from there debut cdr on oktomedia.

                                            fact091     ahlzadevelopr  - "collaboration"      c20
two of americas top cut up artist ahlzagailzehguh and developer sent scraps of material back in fourth via email and each carved all new compositions from the these blocks of sound. this is exactly what you would expect from a meeting of these two heavy weights, meticulously cut up sounds of electronics, tapes and metal thrown precisley in every direction. this collaboration will extend into the live realm at summer scum III this year, and both sides are already working on a follow up.

                                            fact090     jesse krakow - "a loaf of fun"      c30
i've known jesse for years, of all the people i worked with at the old label, jesse is one of the few that i still have fairly constant contact with, and was by far one of the nicest, coolest, most hard working of all of them. you may know his name from time of orchids, pak, fast n bulbous, or his time playing for shudder to think. "a loaf of fun" is the follow up to his first solo album "i want to make fun with you" (released on public eyesore, get in touch with bryan day over there at eyesore and buy it and everything else available from that label) and it follows closely in step with the first record. 90+ songs, most under a min, of skewed pop music influenced by zappa, the talking heads and the shaggs. for fans of quirky 80s pop music and prog. hands down the funnest thing i have ever released!

                                 fact041    ab duo - "monster island and other greats"     c90
part one in the dayton archive series comes this gem from the ab archive, this one goes back to 98' or 99'… featuring the duo of eli caudill and matthew reis (developer) augmented by a few friends, one of which (kevin tibbs) was fairly pivotal in this era of ab. stoned psych jams, instant composition, fun with samplers, stand up bass, bad guitar playing, bizzaro beat poetry, ab had more in common (and no knowledge of) bands like no-neck blues band and nihilist spasm band than the much more focused free improv style that have since honed. this was a free for all. odd short songs composed in real time, and tape edited on the spot. total bizarro.

                            fact088   stress orphan / cincinnatus c.  - "split"    c20
the electronic equivalent of a doom/grind split. stress orphan brings the slow motion apocalypse of brutal low end harsh electronic crunch. while cincinnatus c. delivers high speed face shredding pedal fury.



 photo IMG_5817_zps77dddb1c.jpg
                                    fact087   contrarian   -  "the age of contrarian"     c10
the worst. noisecore from dayton ohio, first "studio" recording. still sucks.




 photo IMG_5807_zpsff205330.jpg
                                            fact086  pcrv / developer   -  "split"  c10
mt native pcrv delivers a track of tape calamity, sputter and hiccups. developer delivers a heavy dose of cut up electronics. another tape where the lines are blurred. an un-marked tape might actually be hard to tell which side is which.


 photo IMG_5811_zps7cdd5d63.jpg
                              fact081   ohio unsemble / josiah miller    -  "split"   c40
recorded live at battery cages for a pedestrian deposit show the ohio unsemble  unleash some serious silence! minimal quiet free improv from ryan jewell (percussion etc), jon lorenz (sax), and matthew reis (banjo etc). josiah miller is an ohio based guitar and string player/composer. his compositions mix world music instruments and an array of musical styles.




 photo IMG_5806_zps160ac63c.jpg
                                          fact046    ab duo  -   "alembic"   c30
the duo of eli caudill and matthew reis have been around since 1998 in one form or another(antennaeboy, ab, caudill/reis, etc), sometimes augmented by a third (meaning, some antennaeboy recordings) exploring various sound adventures. in the currant form of ab duo (see also caudill/reis) its still 100% improv as always, but it leans more towards a more high brow / academic end almost, there are still a few dick and fart jokes, but gone are the faux rock songs, the experiments with drone, the jazz weirdness. they have elevated to a higher plan of mostly acoustic free improv focused on extended technique.

                                                    fact085 developer / filth c20
denton tx's rob buttrum's filth sounds like the logical progression throbbing gristle would have had if they didnt break up. brutal looping industrial rhythms, harsh pulses of synth death. one of my favorite projects going right now. developer is matthew reis cutting up every sound he can get his hands on into and audio collage of what the fuck is happening.




 photo IMG_5309_zpsd6de2fea.jpg
                                                 fact084 developer / scant c20
rav's scant is the hands down best hnw act going right now. its not just everything turned up to 11 and fighting for air boring ass hnw the majority of the scene is making right now. so much attention to detail, subltle shifts... if its possible for wall noise to be intricate, few can pull it off, and scant is one of them. ohio's developer have been shredding faces off with his particular brand of fast paced cut ups for the last few years, and in the words of paranoid time's pat yankee, is "peaking right now".




 photo IMG_5312_zps3cf54db0.jpg
                                       fact083 roadside picnic - "the idiot / siren" c40
uk's justin wiggins is the man behind roadside picnic, a fairly prolific project thats making some headway in the international scene. both tracks use electro-acoustic techniques,  concret sounds, minimal electronics, and an excellent use of timing and space to create enveloping other worlds.  


 photo IMG_5314_zps7191129b.jpg
                          fact080 developer group - "dayton / cleveland board meetings" c10
two short live documents of meetings of the developer group. matthew reis of developer live edits multiple other players input like the puppet master to a bunch of evil marionettes. various members of the board were on hand in dayton for a new years meeting (peter, jay, justin, roam, jonathan, matthew, brittney, jml, james and ben) and in cleveland for a scrap metal summit (nate, roman, mitch, paul, matthew, wyatt, jack and jake.).

                                              fact075 jason zeh / developer - "split" c30
jason zeh takes cassette tapes to a whole new level. from the first time we witnessed zeh performe live, we have been in awe of his work.  hours and hours of pre production work go into every tiny detail of every piece he performs/records. releasing records and tapes this year on labels such as c.i.p., chondritic sound, banned productions, and hanson (later this year), all of which were the result of literally years of work. a stunning piece of droning hiss and hum. developer shows us another side of his work with this track, opening with a lush synth tone, rhythm and a slow motion take on his typically lightning speed cut up style. the sounds getting cut in for slightly longer stretches and definitely sparser over the pulsing tone.

 photo IMG_5325_zps1982d886.jpg
                                               fact070 patio slang - "surface politics" c60
patio slang is the duo of bryan day on homemade instruments and radio transceivers, and toyohiro okazaki on electronics. recorded in 2012 in various spots while on tour in japan, these pieces go from near inaudible to ear crushing sometimes one track. bryan's set up of homemade gear sounds as impressive as it looks, okazaki's electronics slither in and out of the various plunks and tings weaving an improvised blanket of clatter and hiss.

yellow springs ohio's math rock band hyrrokkin have been killing it live all over the u.s. for a few years now, this year all that hard work paid off and they released their first lp/cd on sickroom records. this is a re-issue of the ep they sold on tour. slightly rougher, definitely rawer demo recordings of some of the songs off the new lp. members of this band spent time in footbinder, matta gawa, kuan, william hooker's trio, and the greg ginn band, if that gives you any indication of the whirlwind time signatures and flurry of notes that litter this cassette tape.

                                    fact065 orgasmic response unit / developer - "split" c20
orgasmic response unit is the unified work of the brothers tandy. luke, also know as being, who runs the skeleton dust label and nate aka diaphragmatic who runs the foxhole atheism label beat the shit out of ever thing metal in site in the most menacing, violent and yet extremely focused use of metal abuse in the u.s. noise scene going right now. you could argue, but you'd be wrong. developer is the no sound is innocent cut up harsh noise solo effort of matthew reis. gysin's cut up techniques and musique-concrete tactics taken up a notch. definitely rolling in the upper eshelon of u.s. cut up artist.

                                      fact045 deceiver / clavicula salomonis - "split" c10
bass player split. matt "phil"goodrich of buffolo ny's power violence/grinders band water torture and victims of circumstance's hnw by way of noisecore solo effort deceiver delivers pitch shifted vocals, brutal low end, and fucking lasers! nate powell of cincinnati doomers impia and grinders forced opinion's creepy as shit clavicula salomonis brings more brutal low end, misused hydraulics, and some ncie hollow scraping sounds. good and creepy. two of the best people i know.

                                  fact044 obsessive thought patterns - "spoken eclipse" c60
this is the second in the dayton ohio archive series. obsessive thought patterns was the noise project of terry means, a sort of dayton legend/godfather. having served times in headswim, an industrial band in the 80's, crust/hardcore bands pawn and 23rd chapter in the 90s,  sludge/doomers drip feeder in the early 00's and currently jaming with half of footbinder, and worked at one of the areas best record stores for extreme music, he definitely helped shape a few minds. in 1996 he gave me a copy of this tape. everything imaginable source sounds collaged onto tape and brutalized with an effects chain. this definitely still holds up

                                                      fact043 potier. - "irreparable" c20
potier. is becoming a household name amongst u.s. harsh heads. following in the footsteps of foxhole atheism and jungle crunk, factotum becomes the 3rd dayton label to release a tape for this german born canadian and there is a reason. using some very tried and true methods; metal, contact mics, feedback, distortion, potier. brings something else to the table, an intense focused tension that has him quickly sitting comfortably on any shelf with the likes of orgasmic response unit, hostage pageant, eid, and the like.

                                        fact042 contrarian / meth lab explosion - "split" c20
sor tor stu and matthew from developer's droppings... drum machine antics, guitar solo fails, samples, sights, sounds, grunts, maybe a fart or two. dayton ohio's noisecore elite, or maybe not. m.l.e. is faction disaster will's harsh noise/hnw thing, bringing the brutality all brutal like.

3 newest factotum tapes. finally getting caught back up after a long hard year of dealing with cancer with my father. since he beat the big c, life has been a whirlwind of fests and tours and short runs of tapes for these various fests and tours, im just now getting a lot of this stuff "officially" released. at some point, i"ll have to post the stuff that slipped thru the crack and went oop before it was ever really  released. so far this year has shown no signs of slowing down either. toured to and played sux by sux west, getting ready to tour to and play end tymes festival, a little bit of time to recover and catch up on things, then tour to and play summer scum again this year. so im trying to stay on top of the catch up process and moving forward with the newest releases. hope all is well with all of you. and thanks for all of your support. couldn't do this without you.                                                                                             





                                                         fact072       developer       c40                                                        
4th developer full length on factotum. stretching out the time a bit more on this one. field recordings, percussion, electronics, found sounds, and the like are still collaged and further cut up. but sounds and events seem to settle in for longer stretches. sounds a bit more composed and less on the fly free improv tape collage. these were originally made for summer scum fest in buffalo and for milwaukee noise fest... the cover is slightly different than the fest edition.                                                                                   




                                                     fact068       muck - "untitled"      c40                                                     

dayton ohio trio of justin lakes (pusdrainer, breached hull, etc.), matthew reis (developer, teeth collection, etc) and britney blackwood (chanteplure, coffin mouth). grim vibes from the creep merchants that are muck. tape loops, and metal scrap and clang over a bed of low end electronics and synth. much harsher than the double tape. a small number of these were available for muck's fall tour in 2012. the double tape + zine,  cdr, and original 10 or so copies of this were all sold out on tour or shortly there after. all may be re-issued on other labels eventually. this c40 gets a second run from factotum. be on the look out for us at summer scum this year, and a short tour with fervour noir right after. releases coming soon on depravity, new forces, foxhole atheism and the always amazing live bait.

"it's really great, nothing happens" - overheard description of an unsemble performance. an entirely acoustic (aside from the build in speakers of zeh's shoebox tape decks) group of ohio sound artist working on group free improv that focuses on quiet. cincinnati's jon lorenz and john rich (sax and clarinet) of wasteland jazz unit and public housing,  columbus' ryan jewell (snare, percussion), bowling green's jason zeh (tape manipulation),  and dayton's matthew reis (banjo, percussion) of developer & teeth collection. two side long live sets, one with the whole group, one a trio of lorenz, jewell, and reis.
