                                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.

new factotum summer crushers:

                                                fact096     developer / deceiver           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. 
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                                               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.

 photo IMG_5821_zpsc408051f.jpg
                            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.

 photo IMG_5308_zpseaf3fa3e.jpg
                                                    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.).



 photo IMG_5310_zps7f41e26b.jpg
                                              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.


 photo IMG_5326_zps7f56b781.jpg
                                                   fact069 hyrrokkin - "astrionics" c30
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.


 photo IMG_5313_zpsdcb41ffc.jpg
                                    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.


 photo IMG_5311_zps8344544f.jpg
                                      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.



 photo IMG_5305_zps4c819b23.jpg
                                  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


 photo IMG_5303_zps4555eeb8.jpg
                                                      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.


 photo IMG_5304_zpsb95fad2d.jpg
                                        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.

just in time for shut up fest III.... 



                         fact082        steve french / contrarian - "split"     c10     (1913vol.17)
steve french is trailer park boys inspired drums and bass power violence from dayton. these ball hockey lovin' fucks are also the former rhythm section of dayton grinders chronic demise. the flip side is blown out noisecore worst from contrarian. these two inept fucks individually are developer and sorcerer torturer.


                               fact067        water torture - "the developer remixes"       c10
buffalo power violence duo water torture semi recently released a split 7" with australian noisy grind duo thedowngoing for a north american tour. water torture gave the un mixed un cut raw studio tracks from their side to developer to "remix". the result sounds more like fast paced 90's japanease harsh noise.


                           fact066       developer / sorcerer torturer - "split"      c20      (1913vol.11)
sorcerer torture is dayton's one man noise core army. garbled vocals, blasts for the sake of blasts, horrible noises, attempts at playing instruments. flip side is dayton's developer usual mute button antics. no sound is innocent.

Tuesday, April 9, 2013

         been a minute, huh? yeah as usual, what was meant to be several batches of releases throughout the summer and into fall, is ending up as two larger batches in the spring and the 2nd will follow by summer. with more to (hopefully quickly) follow.
          all of these tapes have been in various stages of completion for quite some time... all artists have had their copies for awhile, and some of them were available at various fests and on tours. the artists have been on since summer of last year, some from this batch and the next. i'm actually fairly low on copies of a few of these, and there were a few things that went out of print before they got posted. they will eventually be posted just to give them their proper place the annals of factotum history, er whatever... so here is the first half....


                            ..................................................................................................

                             fact078       developer / mass comm - "split" c20   (1913vol.15)
another dayton split. j.e.barajas' (foresight, authority, okto media) new project mass comm takes up where foresight left off. using only guitar as source for this recording, jeb makes it impossible to tell. a heavy dose of electronics and audio collage, transforming the original into a fast racket. on the other side, another dose of improv tape collage from developer. electronics, found sounds, field recordings and lots and lots of percussion are all on the chopping block. no sound is innocent with either of these artists.

                                      fact074     aidsblood / public housing    c20   (1913vol.13)
aidsblood is dayton's no-wave sludge free improv noise rock super group. twin bass, twin drum, and a 4-stringed guitar for a heavy dose of what the fuck. public housing is cincinnati's no-fi noise rock darlings. the wasteland jazz unit sax-men on dual guitar, filled out by a drummer who plays on trash, and a lady with a table full of electronics.

               ...........................................................................................................................


fact073      developer / pusdrainer - "split" c20    (1913vol.12)
dayton split- developer cuts stuff up, pusdrainer loops stuff. both act like assholes,  you know you want it. both artist have been slinging these tapes at fests and on tours since the breached hull / developer / skin tape tour back in august, but for any of you that dont have this yet, we have some left.

                                                fact071      parched earth - "kadian" c20
  two sidelong tracks of dynamic electro-acoustic works from this young mansfeild, ohio composer. processing sounds and collaging them in the most organic sounding of ways, ordinary objects become a world of mystery. super stoked to be releasing something for this guy fairly early in his career, really look foward to watching his progression from here. this sounds like early 20th century composer work, so i can only imagine where he's gonna go.

.................................................................................................................................................................


                                      fact063      developer / phoned nil trio - "split" c20
developer gives us a side long track of mixer play and tape fuckery. developer's usual brand of musique-concrete for people who can't spell bernard parmigiani. phoned nil trio, three weirdos from milwaukee that can definitely spell parmigiani, and a large number of other hard-to-spell words and phrases. peter/ neil/ and dan offer up a side of collage weirdness on par with the flip side, hope you kids like cussing!

                                      fact062    the ames room - "full illionois jacquet"" c60
energetic and brutal free jazz from this french trio. jean-luc guionnet - alto sax, will guthrie - drums, and clayton thomas - double bass. two scorching side long live tracks recorded in paris and lyons that seriously rip. self proclaimed minimal maximal terror jazz, and its for good reason. outside of the ames room these guys have covered everything from electro-acoustic composition and free improv to rock, and jazz composition. not to mention having worked with the likes of peter brotzmann, alex dorner, andy moor, keith rowe, philip samartzis, and jerome noetinger to name just a few.

fact061      developer / being - "split" c20  (1913vol.9)
if you had a chance to catch being live this year, you may have witnessed a version of this set. stereo static and crackle, two channels with the same set up, panned hard, then intricately tweaked with extreme precision. in the stereo spectrum even the slightest changes seem like glacial shifts to the listener on a good system. the effects of the stereo field can be felt on the flip side as well. developer delivers a miasmic sound flurry of layered harsh noise, fast paced cut ups, found sound and field recordings. "headphones for maximum psychosis."

                                               fact060       aidsblood - "untitled"  2xc20
co-released with inner city sound systems, 40 min of totally fucked no-wave sludge free improv noise rock. a revolving door of dayton ohio musicians and noisers- members of footbinder, drowner, vicious grave, altars, developer, skin tape, quills, and diaphragmatic have all done time, most being mainstays. two drummers, two bassist, one guitar and (though not on these recordings) one or two sax players.

                            fact058      alexander adams - "stray voices over roaming"   c40
dayton ohio ex-pat now living amongst the glorious scumbags of chicago. two sidelong pieces using electro-acoustic and musique-concrete techniques. alexander's intricate work draws you in and reveals more and more with every listen.

                   fact056      explosive improvised device  - "embrace self defeat"   c30
very honored to be releasing a tape for mr anthony saunders, who is such a perfectionist, its hard to actually get material from him... i did a short tour with him, jason zeh and nicolas ceparski back in 2009, and thats when talks of this tape first started. this is fantastic dymanic harsh noise made using  a fairly small string of effects and metal.  simple set up, complex results. i am completely ok with how long it took to get this out, well worth the wait for material this good.

                                                       fact054      aperiodic  - "s/t"   c30
aperiodic began in 1997 in dayton ohio. two of the members having since moved to other cities. all have been in and out of various bands; enon, a ten o'clock scholar, lab partners, and currently the exponential, and holy fuck. and through it all, aperiodic. intense free improvisation with elements of free jazz, no-wave, 90's noise rock, and even musique-concret. this created using traditional rock instruments drums and electric guitar with effects, as well as eastern instruments the gu gin, rudar veena, and surbahar.
