Let us celebrate my hero, Jonah Rapino.
His music is light years ahead, I'll explain.
Jonah, I think, is a musical visionary, in that, he see’s music, and this includes an advanced mind when it comes to writing, arranging, producing, performing, editing, the whole nine. I've sat beside him many times making records, and to see him sculpt the sound, hearing things that you can't hear, creating future music, has endlessly inspired me. And let it be known that Jonah is my partner here at Mass Dist so bear with my bias. But his body of music represents boundless creativity and forward thinking. Within these projects Jonah has experimented with live quadrophonic sound, DIY visuals, theatrics, costumes, string ensembles, electronics, etc, and his sublime production. He was way ahead of, not only his friends, but the scene, in general. And best of all - the music. Jonah is a violinist, so prepare to be entertained by violin over beats, people. He's trying new things. Curently, Jonah has moved on to Ethiopian Orchestras, Big Time Movie Soundtracks, and his beloved Devil Music, but maybe if we scream loud enough he’ll humor us with new diy recordings. Jonah! Jonah! Jonah!
And now, on the Free Music Archive, Jonah Rapino's Complete Mass Dist Works:

3 oddball CSC Funk Band releases on the internet for the first time!
"Live at Zebulon" is our first tape. 4 pretty tight performances. Repetition Repetition Repetition.
"Racket" is a compilation of some one off live jams. A little looser.
"Free" is a mess. I'm not even sure it's listenable but it sure is fun.

Hello! Over the next several months Mass Dist will be uploading it's entire catalog to the Free Music Archive! We're very excited and thankful to be doing this.
Every few days Mass Dist will drop another few records. Mass Dist existed from 1994 - 2012 and was the brain child of Colin Lagenus and Jonah Rapino.
To start, these first 5 Mass Dist records uploaded to the FMA comprise the output of the first year and a half of the USAISAMONSTER.
Usaisa prolifically genre hopped and tried everything and everyone at it's beginning.
These recordings feature Colin Langenus, Tom Hohmann, Adam Taber, Jeremy Harris, Sara Shapouri, Chris Uraney, Tony Spazziani, Raw Dawg, Vlad, and maybe more.
1 is noise jams.
Soul Jerker is art punk.
Weed Blood is stoner metal.
Trippy Yet Wholesome is folk rock.
5 is power violence.
Thanks for the time.
