PSYCHIC GRAVEYARD
New Band from DOOMSDAY STUDENT and ALL LEATHER Members
announce Debut Single; Remix by Electro-House duo MSTRKRFT

Noise Rock pioneers, Eric Paul (Arab On Radar, Chinese Stars, Doomsday Student), Paul Vieira (Chinese Stars, Doomsday Student), and Nathan Joyner (Some Girls, All Leather, Hot Nerds) venture through uncharted territory with their new band, Psychic Graveyard. The band’s debut single, Dead In Different Places - set to be released early next year through SKiN GRAFT Records - exemplifies the raw tapestry of sounds that characterize the new endeavor. Nathan Joyner’s grinding synths and “found sound” buries the seed of each song deep into the fertile ground - while Paul Vieira’s manic, fuzzed-out guitars and Eric Paul’s obsessive lyrics shower the proceedings with equal parts sunshine and rain.

ad

Dead In Different Places is the first single to be released off their debut album, Loud As Laughter, which is due out Spring 2019. According to the band, the process of writing the album was unusual for them. Throughout 2018, San Diego-based Joyner would send files filled with the skeletons of songs to Vieira and Paul in Providence, Rhode Island. The two would add their parts, and then the songs would undergo an arduous, back and forth until all of the members agreed on the final version. The distance of the members and the anomalous approach to writing resulted in a diverse, yet coherent album that picks-up and drops-off the listener at dramatically different places. Like nerve endings spliced and sewn back together, the process spawned a whole new auditory system - which serves as the infrastructure for Psychic Graveyard.

The single was engineered by Joyner and mixed by Psychic Graveyard in Providence, RI and San Diego, CA.  The B-side to Dead In Different Places features a radical reinterpretation of the title track - a stunning remix by the illustrious Dance-Punk, Electro-House duo MSTRKFRT, who've previously been commissioned to remix songs by artists ranging from Katy Perry to Kylie Minogue; from Wolfmother to John Legend

Dead In Different Places will be released as a Digital Single and as a Limited Edition, Manufactured on Demand CD Single in Jewel Case packaging. It can pre-ordered from SKiN GRAFT Records Bandcamp Store or Paypal Shop.

 
The single releases on January 11th, 2019.
Live shows to support the release will be announced shortly.

ITEM! The SPACE STREAKINGS "First Love" collection is out today - and the first review has just hit the streets - courtesy of The Vinyl District!

Space Streakings "First Love: Debut Album and Demo Tracks" (SKiN GRAFT) Part of a fertile Japanese u-ground scene that’s highest-profile export was Boredoms, Space Streakings sometimes sounded like an espresso company-sponsored video game tournament taking place in the pit of a battle of the bands where the horn-section-flanked spazz-core finalists nix the idea of taking turns and just go for broke simultaneously.

This glass-mastered compact disc (in a six-panel jacket) collects their ’93 debut "Hatsu-Koi", originally released on Nux Organization (the label of Zeni Geva’s KK Null, who also produced), and adds a prior demo. For those bummed over the lack of vinyl, both of Space Streakings subsequent efforts, ’94’s Steve Albini-assisted "7-Toku" and their ’96 collab with Mount Shasta (Shakuahchi Surprise), are currently available on wax. / GRADE: A-

Click HERE to visit The Vinytl District and read the Full Review.

Speaking of "7-Toku", here'sa fun write-up from satisfied customer over at amazon that dates all the way back to 2002:

"Putting the 'experiment' back in 'experimental music': Take a CD copy of SLAVESTATE by Godflesh. Put it on the floor, label side up. Step on it and grind it into the street for about three feet, until it's impossibly scratched. Put it into your CD player, press PLAY and start jumping up and down right next to your stereo, yelling random syllables at the top of your lungs. If all goes well, the noise you make will set off a car alarm outside, the neighborhood dogs will start barking, the neighbors screaming...

...and at that point, you will still not approach the bizarre sound of Space Streakings on their unbelievable 7-TOKU album. Looking for a band featuring a gasoline-powered guitar and a car horn as instruments? Check. Have an unfullfilled desire for Japanese chanting over what sounds like the STREET FIGHTER II sound folder? Check.

Anybody who likes Naked City, Zeni Geva, Dillinger Escape Plan, early Napalm Death, Ruins, DHR, Today is the Day, Meshuggah, "gabber" techno, "happy hardcore," Carl Stalling's MERRY MELODIES scores, video games, crying babies and/or migraines should pick this bizarre record up as soon as possible."

The new 73-minute collection of rare and unheard SPACE STREAKINGS tracks "First Love" is now avaiable for legal Digital Download and as a Glass Mastered Compact Disc in a matte-varnished Six-Panel Gatefold Jacket. Their second album "7-Toku" and third "Shakuhachi Surprise" (a collaboration with Chicago's Mount Shasta) are also available.

"First Love: Debut Album and Rare Demos: Remastered"
Glass Mastered Compact Disc
in Six-Panel Gatefold Jacket
(( Out October 26th, 2018 ))

Hi Everyone!
Hear that? That's right - the CD edition of KOENJIHYAKKEI's "Dhorimviskha" has made it out into the wild, tickling the lasers of sound systems far and wide with the band's unique brand of progressive rock - all sung in a language of their own invention. While we await the completion of the Gatefold Double LP version (coming this November and pre-orderable over yonder and yonder-er), it is my extreme pleasure to announce SKiN GRAFT catalog number one-hundred twenty-nine in what will inevitabley be a finite series of hard knocks.

space

In the quarter century that’s followed the release of their debut LP, there has never been another band that sounds quite like Japan’s SPACE STREAKINGS. Their first album "Hatsu-Koi" was produced by our now legendary friend K.K. Null (ZENI GEVA, YONA-KIT, etc) and released on his NUX Organization label. Soon after, SPACE STREAKINGS joined the SKiN GRAFT roster to release a pair of 7" single and comic book sets, a second full-length LP - "7-Toku" - and a third long-player - under the moniker "SHAKUHACHI SURPRISE" - a super-group collaboration with Chicago's swamp boogie noisemakers MOUNT SHASTA . Before they disbanded, SPACE STREAKINGS played a few shows across the United States and an unforgettable performance at Amsterdam's TegenTonen festival alongside BRISE-GLACE, SHELLAC and FAUST.

flyers

On October 26th, 2018 SKiN GRAFT will release the SPACE STREAKINGS "First Love" collection. With 20 Songs totaling 73 minutes, “First Love” collects the long out of print 1993 debut album “Hatsu Koi” with rarely heard demos from the band’s 1990 self-released cassette, all meticulously remastered by Makoto Oshiro for this release. The glass-mastered Compact Disc comes packaged in a densely illustrated Six-Panel Gatefold Jacket which includes unseen photos, reproductions of gig flyers and album artwork. It can be pre-ordered over at our Paypal Shop or bundled with a digital download version at the SKiN GRAFT Records BANDCAMP Page.

PRESS QUOTES:
“The obstreperous, utterly contemporary sound of Japan’s Space Streakings is composed by Captain Insect (bass, programming), Kame Bazooka (bazookahorn!, vocals, alto saxophone), Karate Condor (turntables, guitar synth, vocoder) and Screaming Stomach (guitar, trumpet). Utilizing a mix of live instruments (both traditional and custom built) and harsh, repetitive programming, Space Streakings create a vivid new listening experience rather than a formulaic copy of a western style.” - All Music Guide

“The story of their formation, as well as their real names are a complete mystery (rumors swirl that all members of the band originally worked as video game programmers), though they are probably the only band ever to utilize a gas powered guitar...” - I Heart Noise

“With a cast that reads like a badly translated film festival, Space Streakings creates hyper-speed meltdown noise, a thick hysterical barrage of galloping electronic percussion, horns, whistles, samples and shouted Japanese vocals, achieving a disjointed level of frenzy that suggests a flooding factory full of workers scrambling for the exits in a blind panic. Far more boisterous than American industrialists, the quartet rushes in and around its tracks layering bits on to a point of distraction in which chaos would come as a welcome relief.” - Trouser Press
