The Complete MASS DIST Is Now Up On The FMA!!!! Here's One Last Random Batch...

Oh my god, I'm done!

Over 100 MASS DIST records made over 25 years are now up on the Free Music Archive! ALL OF THEM!

This took months and months, and years and years, and hours and hours every week. I'm relieved. I'm exhausted. I'm very proud.

I want to thank Jonah Rapino, Cesar Siguencia, and Cheyenne Hohman for all the help! And thanks to the Free Music Archive for being such a great home for all of our music!

To tie it up, one last batch of rando weirdo MASS DIST for you:

LANCE ROMANCE, DUDE TOUR, NATURE BOY, DON LENNON, GODBOIS, TUTTLE MUSIC, GRAND ISLAND, OPEN MIC NIGHT, WACSAC, MAGGOTZOID, and MARTYR MINER

I got a couple ideas of things I'd like to upload to the FMA in the future, but the big pile is done. The mountain is levelled. I can rest. Move on to other ridiculous things.

I'LL BE BACK!

All the Weird Colin L Mass Dist Tapes Now Up On The FMA!

I am Colin. Colin is me.

When I was on tour all the time with Usaisamonster, I'd also keep busy making experimental tapes and whatnot on the side. I'd sell these tapes and get my ya ya's out too.

Here are all of them.

Monogamous Octopus was a one night only George Michael cover band etc with brand new musicians Barbara Schauwecker and Meghan Eckman. Raw on purpose and by accident.

Live Loop was my interpretation of Zappa Beefheart's "The Blimp" performed by the Dude Tour dudes - Jimmy Cousins, Adam Taber, Dan Beckman, Rob Francisco, and Jeremy Harris.

Guitars was a nice jam day with old buddy Eric Boros. Just wanted to make something together.

Langenius was a piece I wrote for a small orchestra led by David Kadden and recorded in Anthony Braxton's room at Wesleyen U.

High As Hell was is an unlistenable? noise collage. Kinda one of my specialties.

Babylongdong and Butt Buddies Forever were two 1 night only bands with silly names with frequent collaborator and old friend Sara Shapouri. Noise.

It's a dark twisted funny fun road to hell and back catch a heart attack.

Thanks for the time.

The Final 5 Devil Music Albums Now Up On The FMA

You may remember a while back we uploaded a bunch of Devil Music albums to the FMA.

Well, now we've added the final 5 Devil Music records. That's all of them. We're all done with them.

I'm happy to add these peas to the pie tho. These releases showcase their orchestral side.

Classical, Soundtrack, and Psychedelic Rock - THE TRIFECTA!

Live At Pozen Center and Live 12-17-04 feature a 40 piece orchestra!

Split Seven Inch With Gold is a pretty sweet weird rock song.

In C is their rock rendition of the Terry Riley classic.

And Soundtrack To Red Heroine is the music that got them to China.

All awesome stuff!

Jonah's Field Recordings from Africa and Asia Up Now!

Jonah Rapino always carries a handheld recorder around whenever he travels. 

And then when he gets home, he edits and compiles these recordings into unique and awesome releases.

He's done it forever, whether tripping around the USA, while making awesome collages for his own albums, or in this case - a couple trips he took in Asia and Africa.

Jonah was over there touring with Devil Music and Debo Band but the whole while he was recording the street, jams, behind the scenes, conversations, whatever...

These are a couple of my favorite Mass Dist records. Amazing stuff.

Check them here:

ASIA

AFRICA 1

AFRICA 2

Or better yet, press the PLAY PAGE button at Handheld Recordings and your next few hours are gonna be awesome.

Thanks and you're welcome.

PICK UPS DISCOGRAPHY AND A TON OF PATRICK MUECKE SONGS ON THE FMA

I met Pat Muecke when I was 20 and he turned me on to a ton of music that i'd never heard before - country blues, reggae dub, Minutemen, etc. He is a huge influence in my life.

He also was (and remains) an iconoclast, a hot s--- guitar player and one of my favorite song writers.

He's got his own style, combining slide guitar, self taught funky notes, great lyrics, and real soul.

I'm proud to have compiled so much Pat Muecke music on Mass Dist's page on the FMA.

You can follow his artistic trajectory - 

It starts with Blind Mitre where creatively and sonically the sky was the limit and the river was raw.

Boils is totally gnarly but his song writing has become more focused and slightly refined.

With Pick Ups, Pat really found himself and figured it out. When a lot of his friends were getting more abstract, he got more direct. I never questioned Pat's trajectory. He was always right on. Still is. Crazy motherf----- :)

Pick Ups was Patrick, Jordan Colon on bass, and 3 different drummers. This Discography features their full length CD Finest Quality with John Motley behind the kit, an excellent demo featuring Joanna Prisco on drums, and a live recording from the Pilot Light in Knoxville featuring Tim Nylander banging away.

And lastly, we have for you a nice recording of Pat playing acoustic blues on Harvard radio.
