DAZZLING KILLMEN
PDF One-Sheet
cat #: GR120LP/CD

“ Most of the great progressive underground bands of the ‘90s would not exist if it weren’t for them.” - Ben Weinman, lead guitarist & primary songwriter of The Dillinger Escape Plan

"Was DAZZLING KILLMEN a hardcore band? A metal band? The world’s gnarliest progressive-rock quartet? “Yes” is the easy answer, but only because it’s easy to rewind through two decades of genre fragmentation to hear Dazzling Killmen’s influence on any number of “math-metal,” “progcore” and similarly classified bands. At the time, however, this St. Louis quartet occupied a genre of one. When SKiN GRAFT released the Killmen’s1994 sophomore LP, “Face of Collapse”, that genre had its touchstone.“ - Excerpt from Aaron Burgess’ liner notes

"The band formed in the St. Louis, MO area, and forged its singular sound with almost no music scene support for such a fringy concept - technically impeccable playing enabling whiplash stopstarts that recalled John Zorn’s Naked City more readily than any rock group one could name, cathartic and discordant guitar stabs, a jaw-dropping rhythm section, arrangements of baroque complexity, and a harrowing, overbearing, inescapable sense of pure dread”. - Dangerous Minds



Loud Life at Alternative Press magazine declared it the top album of the 90's based on the following criteria: 1) Avoidance of formula or cliché. 2) Dexterity of rhythm section, 3) Quality of album’s production values, 4) Lack of predictable lyrical subjects - Satan, Straightedge, Viking folklore, etc. “Sounds like Dave Bruebeck’s Time Out played through Carcass' PA system."

Engineered by Steve Albini. Remastered from the original analog tapes and packaged with a 16-page booklet of liner notes, interviews and comics. Includes three bonus tracks. Collects every studio track recorded by the quartet version of the band.

After two and a half years, CHEER-ACCIDENT are crawling out of their pandemalaise to make their way toward the Sunset. "Here Comes The Sunset", their 24th full-length album has been released to the public and this is how we all get to celebrate: nine humans, unmasked, singing and playing in the CheerAx Basement.

Shot with multiple cameras and broadcast (on a delay) from the SKiN GRAFT Records Bandcamp page for maximum impact and clarity. The show will also include some pre-recorded suprises. Tell your friends!

Note: The show will be streamable for 48 hours after it airs, so even if you don't catch it on the initial broadcast, you'll be able to stream it all Easter weekend long!

TICKETS available HERE.

"On its 24th album, long-running Chicago institution Cheer-Accident, helmed by singer / drummer / trumpeter Thymme Jones, reaffirms its position as one of the world’s best prog rock bands.

But for the ensemble, the stylistic markers of “prog rock” the genre are less important than being progressive in general. While the group has often incorporated wildly complex time signatures, elaborate arrangements, and breathless technical execution, Jones, guitarist Jeff Libersher, and an ever-shifting cast of collaborators are more interested in experimenting with new formats and approaches than strictly hewing to the hallmarks of prog. Over time they’ve produced hooky piano-driven pop, needling noise excursions, and, of course, ridiculously overwrought art-rock. The band has exhibited relentless craftsmanship and precision, but it has never taken itself too seriously..." - Peter Margasak for BANDCAMP DAILY

PSYCHIC GRAVEYARD
and USA NAILS "Split"

"This unholy marriage that SKiN GRAFT Records is officiating (along with Box Records) is one of the best things you will hear this year- Psychic Graveyard and USA Nails have been releasing some of the best noise rock/punk over the last few years. I have been with both bands since day one and have heard their sounds slowly evolve: Psychic Graveyard has become more chilling and esoteric, and USA Nails more feral and noisier. Both bands are making their best music right now, and this split is a must-have.

Let’s start with Psychic Graveyard. Their brand of mechanical post-punky, noise rock is alive and well (“Building You A Rainbow”, “What Happens At Zero”). The other tracks have an added creep factor: “Strangest Hobbies” and “Love My Skeleton Too” sound like some Cronenberg-esque bio-machinery on the fritz, lying somewhere between Arab On Radar, Helios Creed, Flesh Narc, and Chrome.  Of course, all of this is completed with the unhinged vocal stylings of Eric Paul (the clever sarcasm and social commentary are always an added bonus).

As for USA Nails, my favorite thing is how they manage to make every release sound different while maintaining their energetic and raucous sound. They are one of my favorite frontrunners of the current noise rock revival and would fit in comfortably with bands such as Tongue PartyMetz,Spectres (UK), Girl Band, etc. Here on this split, there is something dirtier about these tracks than previous releases—such as the recording quality and overall songwriting—and it really works well for this band.  The songs range from galloping, fractured, spastic shards of noise-punk (“It’s All In The Context”, “Two Footed Jump Into A Wall Whilst Chewing On Fingernails”, “Tooting Broadway”) to plodding rhythm sections that slowly accumulate swaths of noise, jagged guitar riffs and distorted vocals (“What Have We Become”, “God Help Us If There Is A War”, “Love Embassy”)".

BREAKING NEWS- (!)
We have two new singles streaming today - USA Nails take off the acrylics and go all in for the gel polish manicure with "Tooting Broadway" while Psychic Graveyard haul out the scorching sci-fi hi-fi slamdunk "What Happens At Zero". Both are from the upcoming album "Split", which will be released on April 1st.

You can stream them from today on at all major music outlets, but seeing as it's Bandcamp Friday as we type, we'd especially appreciate it if you plunked down the sixteen bits and bought the songs at our Bandcamp page- or treated yourself to a pre-order of the whole album which will be releasing next month! And if you've already got that on lock, there's plenty more racket to be had where that came from, including Cheer-Accident's latest "Here Comes The Sunset".

CHEER-ACCIDENT's "Here Comes The Sunset" has been cut loose! Here are the early reviews...

"Here Comes the Sunset" packs an epic journey into around half an hour - positively concise for a Cheer-Accident album - and proves that the band continue to care as little as possible about commercializing their “everything but the kitchen sink” aesthetic. Music scenes come and go, but the Accident persist, reminding us that they’re still one of the greatest, most challenging, and most fun bands that Chicago has ever produced - and that their music will always transcend genre and hype".
- The CHICAGO READER

("Here Comes The Sunset") adds to an already impressive catalogue - expect the unexpected from this iconic Chicago-based band". - PROGZILLA

Bloody hell, they’ve done it again. Do we have yet another to throw in to the "which is the best Cheer Accident album" debate? Is this yet another "is this the best album they’ve ever made" situation? They are once again pushing the boundaries, once again thrilling us with their almost outrageous moves... being as obtuse as ever... "Here Comes The Sunset" is as good as anything they’ve done". - The ORGAN

"Forty years in and Chicago’s musical adventurersCheer-Accident are still exploring the furthest reaches". - JOYZINE

"It’s impossible to be bored listening to “Here Comes The Sunset”. At the turn of each piece, surprise after surprise lies in wait... Cheer-Accident remarkably resist the test of aging". - MUZZART

- more reviews to come!

The “in-name only” United States and Kingdom’s divisions are more raw and splintered than ever before. And it's from this place of division that the USA’s PSYCHIC GRAVEYARD and SKiN GRAFT Records have joined with the UK’s USA NAILS and BOX Records to form “Split”.

Having been remixed by the likes of MSTRKRFT, LIARS and SECRET FUN CLUB, Psychic Graveyard are no strangers to collaboration. Here they determinedly ease layer upon cacophonous layer to their methodically set stage before burning it to the ground. As with their previous full lengths, the songs were recorded with Seth Manchester at Machines With Magnets in Pawtucket.

The cuts served up by slabby noise-rock /angular post-punk /dissonant no-wave cognoscenti USA Nails feature notes that work, notes that don't work, wonky ping-pong guitars and shitty solos while musing over clinically medicated anxiety, internet commentators and Orwellian data practices. Although he didn't realize it at the time, drummer Tom Brewins broke his arm just before the band recorded with Wayne Adams at Bear Bites Horse in London.

He got better, but maybe the rest of us won't.

"Deranged genius from former members of Arab on Radar and Some Girls.” - REVOLVER Magazine

(On Eric Paul’s lyrical invention) "This guy’s solipsistic… his mind orbiting another planet- the mix unevenly doubling his inner monologues. Synth player Nathan Joyner, guitarist Paul Vieira, and drummer Charles Ovett all up the psychodrama by savage degrees, leading off with a grinding, foghorn dirge that eventually expands into a punishing industrial hailstorm." - SPIN

"If the music itself isn't in retreat from society, then society backs away from it." - The WIRE

---------------------------------------------
USA NAILS PRESS:
---------------------------------------------
"….have proven themselves a raucous, abrasive, and scathing band - difficult to pigeonhole into a single genre. There is something about USA Nails that feels super British. Not in a pompous, patriotic way - it’s more how the band capture a sense the mundane and the monotonous and make it feel bitingly nasty." - DISTORTED SOUND

"A mix of Drive Like Jehu headbangers, nods to psychedelia and a throttling of hardcore (that takes on ) a red-eyed life of its own; roadworn and irritated, its rabid face pressed against the glass.” - The SKiNNY MAGAZINE

"Heavy, crushing, and aggressive." - The NEEDLE DROP

“In the end, this album does not reach the heights of “Introducing Lemon” or “Fear Draws Misfortune”, but for anyone who already likes the band, it is worth picking up, and you can't really go wrong owning this album - although I would still recommend "Fear Draws Misfortune" as the starting point if you are looking to get into this Chicago-based band”.

- The GAZZARDIAN
(writing about the 2006 album “What Sequel?” over at Prog Archives)


In the sixteen years that have passed since the review above, Cheer-Accident have put off death, then faded out, and now… “Here Comes The Sunset”- ?!? When will all of this ending end, you ask? Well, Cheer-Accident’s unending series of endings comes to a close (yet again) with their 24th album - brand new for 2022 - on Friday, February 18th.

What gives? - Peeking through the earglass, it sounds like we’ve got some cutup / schismatic Plastic R&B, something vaguely resembling Eurodance, a coupla minutes of Prog, a dash of melancholia, and a would-be (you know, right up until the "middle section") faithful rendition of a famous song by their fellow (but less drably attired) Midwestern rock band, Cheap Trick.

Join us for a gloriously dismal time as Cheer-Accident’s constitution collapses upon itself once again. You CAN go wrong listening to this. You can go exactly this wrong.

ITEM (!) The United States Postal Service has gone postal on us yet again - ringing in the new year with yet another price f’ing price hike.

To take a little bit of the sting out - we’re bringing back the digital edition of the CAMP SKiN GRAFT compilation at the “Pay What You Want” price point for just a little while.  The MOD CD comes in at just $12.85 and would be steal at even at ten times the shipping cost.  This is “hands-down” the best compilation of the 90’s, so go get it one way or another.

PRESS QUOTES:
--------------------------------------
  • “Every few years, a definitive compilation album comes out that helps define true avant garde - this is it." 
    - Ink 19
  • “Skin Graft picked up the torch when Amphetamine Reptile went m.i.a., releasing some essential noise rock and fucked up punk records. In an effort to give us, the listening public, a sampling of all the ruckus they favored, the label put together this compilation which spreads the spectrum of their aesthetic. You got your art damaged rock, your freakout jazz, your unabashed noise, your droning metal, your hardcore, your punk, your space jams, and most everything in between." - Shiney Grey Monotone

  • ”The greatest WTF?! compilation ever put to disc. Essential!" - Runny Noise
