SHATTER ALL ORGANIZED ACTIVITIES… except that Bandcamp revenue stream!
Aaron Dilloway — ultra-prolific noise artist, floppy-mask-wearing creep, shrieking jester to our inner King Lear — has gifted the internet a brand-new solo album entitled Siena, named for its “[r]aw recordings made inside and outside in Siena Italy, summer of 2012.” The eight-track album is being offered for free download via Bandcamp, and will only be available on digital formats. I haven’t listened to it yet, but I have downloaded it. Looks great in iTunes 11.
Siena is only the tip of the digital iceberg, however. Perhaps even more exciting is that 30+ albums from the Dilloway-run Hanson Records back catalog are now available for perusal and cheap purchase, the majority of which were only available in super-limited tape editions. Hanson has been around since 1994, so there are literally hundreds of omissions, but what’s up so far has to be among the cream of the crop — Kevin Drumm’s Land of Lurches, Hair Police’s Drawn Dead, Emeralds’ Solar Bridge, ohhhhh nelly! Also don’t miss the titles in Hanson’s Flashback Series, such azz The Haters’ 1986 debut LP and To Live and Shave in L.A.’s 30-Minuten Männercreme from 1994.
Finally, and MOST excitingly, Hanson Records is on Facebook now. Let all your distant cousins know you’re fiending for more Exhumed Corpse!
