« © »

” Thee dark alt god himself, Clint Catalyst descended onto TXTBK’S CHVяCH XV BяXK3N 7ANGvAG3 and pummeled thee sound tonight. Gliding gracefully through cavernous depths ov dance and depravity I absolutely loved his whole persona. And all guns instantly went off in Blambodia when he complimented me on my music taste in thee chat. Thee natives chests all swelled with pride. INFINITE BLAM.

Every Sunday, 7pm Pacific / 10pm EST you can get on Bummer Bit Radio and hear Textbeak or choice guests bringing you down into thee dark nether regions ov thee CHVяCH XV BяXK3N 7ANGvAG3. “

BATHAUS

Meet BATHAUS.  No, not ‘Bauhaus’ — nor is it ‘Bath Haus.’
Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way . . .

As steeped in eroticism as esotericism, my introduction came about when I chanced upon


BAT HAUS : ME The ZePH Widow

Though the only information I’ve been able to find
[ via The Juke ] :

” BATHAUS is an ‘artist/collective/phantasm’ working in sound distortion, performance, photography and video. BATHAUS uses new media combined with analogue techniques to produce spectacular performances which integrate original sound and video projections, as well as live movement and dance pieces. The flickr page includes photographs and manipulated stills from the original video pieces. The videos are projected and shot using a Minolta Freedom III 35mm camera with expired film. “

Cottonmouth Kissed Cassettes — Eye Doublecross Release and Give-Away!

Some of you may recall my excitement over Cø††øN, a track “influenced by Cottonmouth Kisses” that the low-fi sigil-slingers known as I†† [eye doublecross] conjured in the recent past . . .

Well, that dark dirge — along with seven other deep-synth threnodies — is now available for public consumption, by way of the I††Skitter split cassette : a ClanDestine Records production.

Although procrastinators / individuals with a propensity toward slack should take note: The release is limited to a scant 75 copies. Said another way? If you’re interested, nap on your gas bill — not this one, chap . . .

And hey: Of the 75 copies, subtract a digit . . . Since from the blahg comments left from this moment till the final spin of Big Ben’s minute hand on January 31 [PST], I’ll be choosing a name at random. That’s right darklings, snarklings, and hexed-out genre-as-yet-undefined glamazons: time to set the Wheel of Fortune in motion again, for a reader give-away! Good times ; good times, indeed . . . [So long as you gorgeous fvckrs remember to provide a valid email address with your entries! Stated with an implicit emphasis on Please, that is. Implicit, though it doesn’t hurt to verba/vocalize “And thanks!” ‘Cause in terms of mad gratitude? BB, I’ve got it . . . More than these shoes and skin of mine can contain, often seems.]

To re-cap : I†† create dopamine-drenched spectral [anti]pop, nightmare lullabies rife with occult symbolism and mysteries that unfold themselves with each listen.

Or . . .with flowery adjectives scraped away; sentiment stripped to its barest-of-bones, bleached structural remains :

Tatt-ered “Cø††øn” and Cottonmouth Kisses

I†† [ eye doublecross ] is not just a band;
they’re “a low-fi hypersigil, casting spells in various mediums .”

[CUE EXAGGERATED SHRUG]

Cool by me, brah.

Though when I discovered the basis for “Cø††øN”—
the latest single the duo conjured & released into the world
was [quote] “influenced by [ my book ] Cottonmouth Kisses” ?

Well, the excitement level racheted a bit Richter,
not gonna lie. . .

Then, upon hearing the track?

That’s when the really good news occurred.

I like it.

« © »

As in : I mean —
I really, really like it.

No need to elaborate, nor to “re-visit”. . .
but we’ve all had at least one friend whose
band/stand-up comedy act/spoken word performance —
[ thought I’d keep the playing field fair ]

You get it/You get it/You get it

Amidst the deafening silence & painful anecdotes that aren’t being shared at this moment,
here’s what is :

Also, two other ways in which this obstinate child of mine
continues to make its mark upon the world

If you’re not able to read the quotation obscured by my likeness?
That strand of syllables won’t be found among the pages of Cottonmouth Kisses,
but rather within the Degeneracy: A Love Letter project —
which I’m hereby placing ‘on the market’
ISO some serious match-making. . .

Said another way?  Prospective publishers, literary agents, &/or
friends/kins/neighbors of the aforementioned?

Where there’s an interest, I have a manuscript.

“I’m Nikki Fucking Narcotic. Do You Know How Many Friends I Have On MySpace?!”

“I’m sick and fucking tired of all these haters!”

scene queens, Buzznet, animated GIF

Oh, GL▲SS †33†H :

How you fill my shattered, charcoal-stained heart with glee.

You Tube, animated gif

There was a moment — a brief blip on history’s collective monitor, one might say — in which the tiara-adorned Scene Queen had a significant role in the inexplicable phenomenon referred to as “CeWebrity[ Yes, I know it’s heinous. Do I need to spell every— ]

[ CUT TO ] : a formulaic Wiki How, YouTube Tutorials and Tribute Videos, an on-line ‘zine and social networking community, hubs like Be-Scene.org and Scene Central, a virtual locale for “ladies in waiting” [ no, but really ] and aspiring Scene Kings to — hell, I don’t know…compare quiz scores while waiting to see if their applications for anointment were accepted, I suppose?

Don’t get me wrong : Some of the O.G. S.Q.s [ yep, sure did ] parlayed their notoriety into lucrative businesses. I respect that. Others?  Well, I’m sure they could tell you.

As for the new breed? Word of advice. For fuck’s sake, don’t call yourself a “Scene Queen.” [ or king . . . or TS, et cetera ] As in : EVER. I mean, no one should have to spell it out, but It’s. . .down-right. . . humiliating.

Whatever the case, as with Cosmo, The Rules or any other ‘How-To’ Guide : If you really want to

However, insofar as Nikki? Deal is : This amalgamation fictitious character encapsulates the monstrous end of the spectrum, in which rigid Ranking Systems and bratty, entitled behavior is the norm.

C H E C K   ±   I T  :

[ Mmm-hrmm. Yeah, whatever Nikki. Bet your skank-ass extensions you’d troll efagz to see if your asinine antics merit discussion, even. ]

But enough about Nikki — she’s so 2007, I’m surprised she isn’t donning a miniature top hat smothered in Hello Kitty appliques while “modeling” a cupcake, middle finger of her other hand extended in that universal gesture of bad breeding.

What I’m really here to talk about? The Correctness Maximus who immortalized Miss Thing. Namely, GL▲SS †33†H

I’ll go ahead and break it down. Whether or not you realize, what you need in your life is a physical copy of their EP available through Black Bvs Records. Unless, of course, you’re like Andie Walsh and have more pressing issues…In which case, who can blame? Not-so-very-minor, the dilemma. You know, that of

Are You A Victim Of The Modern Witch-hunt?

[a quick check-list]:

How have relations with your peers been as of late?
Have any of your friends seemed distant, unavailable?  Perhaps a bit stand off-ish?
Or even worse: has anyone begun to treat you with suspicion?  Spoken to you with a distrusting tone?
Conducted a rash & volatile act upon your arrival—say, for example, the frenetic strumming of an
acoustic guitar to the tune of a [quote] “power ballad”?  &—if dare say that be the case—was
aforementioned ::SHUDDER:: stadium serenade coupled with an egregiously off-key
rendition of  lyrics such as “Don’t Stop Believin'”?
(Stop.  Believing.  What?!)

Quite frankly, do you feel as if your interests incite an impending sense of moral panic?

Are you persecuted…                                                                             for your taste in music?

In †hee Name Ov DELTΔ DELTΔ DELTΔ‘s Sacred †ri-Force

La Main Gauche

 

The soundtrack to this shard of aesthetic brilliance cloaked in thunder-storms and mythological references appears on ℑ⊇≥◊≤⊆ℜ [ of Mater Suspiria Vision ]’s Zombie Rave Mix-Tape: Special Friday the 13th Edition for Мишка, as referenced H E R E, with free download available.

However, I’ve remained so entranced by the video for “La Main Gauche” — as well as the mu§ic-makers, about whom information is scarce — I feel it imperative to share

T H E . L E F T . H A N D

which

dazzles with shadow-spun mythological references, dopplegangery, trianglecore images primed for endless tumblr•re•appropriation, histrionic body language and wicked bitchen cathedral slinking-in-a-crawl / crawling-as-a-dance dreamstate sequences, an obfuscated mingling of the sacred / the profane.&.the arcane, mesmerizing esoterica, symbols and symbology nursed on preternatural mystery and the occult, sex-driven serpent-fisted circular-spotlit nonchalant stares, venomous glares interspersed with curious ‘blowing’ gestures, question marks raised like [Lady] Lazarus

[ just “on the mark” enough to entice one to immediately hit ‘play’ again, then again, and again — then, even . . . ]

when

all the while, visuals charged with emotional explosives continue swirling into wide-eyed consciousness, raising and rising, arising from a forecast of otherwise placid internet ethers / the collective ‘blue screen life’ in which this clip exists is a hook too tempting not to get hooked on [ and on that hook, one’s heart ]:

Goth’s Mutant Offspring: Witch House/Ghost Drone/Zombie Rave/Drag

Deep bass
and
digital runes

:: A Spell Has Been Cast ::

and

It’s one of chaos: there’s prattle over terminology in the insular world of ‘outsider music,’ and I can’t help but be amused.  Y’see, the English language has these things called “labels,” and the reaction people have to them reinforces the power of nomenclature.  Give it a try sometime: arrange a few consonants and vowels, toss ‘em around, see what kind of response you get.

Fetch, baby…It’s Fetch.

But what if the words aren’t words but rather occult symbols/symbology?  I’ve often wanted to speak in hieroglyphics — with cartoon captions, for added effect — but I just can’t seem to get band names like †‡† &  \\\^◊^/// to dance their way off my tongue.

They’re part of a scene that — as with any ‘scene’ — seems to have as many detractors as devotees, which I think is a good thing.  On one manicured claw, there’s the trappings of being pigeon-holed; on the other, opportunities that might present themselves through being Guilty By Association. Rather than tl;dr the obvious, how about I introduce the genres?  Sub-genres? [ Again: an argument I opt to file under None Of My Business ]

of

Witch House † Ghost Drone † Zombie Rave † Drag

With origins as questionable as to what extent they’ll have an effect, they’re like strands of the same virus — or a dark and murky exploration into a game of Choose Your Own Adventure.

Whatever the case, I’m backin’ the brilliant post “Enthralled By Thee Witch” by My Pal The Crook [ creative director,co-owner and founder of the streetwear line Мишка NYC ], who describes this mysterious burgeoning mileu as “Goth music for a new generation and a new millennium, fully embracing all the things that drew kids into the genre through the 70s and 80s — the secrecy, the occultism, the suspense, the danger, and the moodiness — but minus all the things that turned people off from it in the 90s: the neon dreads, the vinyl pants, the fangs, and the platform industrial boots.”

Fucking dead-on, that! Brings to mind a relevant aside from Hex Files: Resurrection to which I’m hereby formally applying an asterisk… I’ve got a choke-hold on A.D.H.D. at the moment, and want to turn you on to the prolific nightmare collective that MPTC’s blogature high—or, rather: LOW—lights, and whose death drones and surreal liquid dreamscapes have been dominating my laptop as of late.
