White label, handmade packaging, no release information, and still, this is the real thing: after years of fans asking to be able to bring the videos that Larvae are showing at their concert, somebody finally jumped the gun and produced a DVD of them. The whole thing, as far as I know will be available only from the band and from the Ad Noiseam online store. We have received our copies, and pre-orders can begin here (those of you attending the Elektroanschlag festival next week will also be able to get this DVD there).
This untitled DVD contains 14 of the videos that Larvae are showing at their gigs (all with optional audio commentaries) and some extra, and can be shipped from us starting on the 6th of April. I can already hear all the wookies, godzillas and 8 bit characters screaming all at once "finally!".
March 21st update: we're back (with a vengeance). All emails etc will be processed and answered on Sunday and Monday.
Unbelievable but true: Ad Noiseam is taking some time off. Time to get some fresh air and recharge the batteries in preparation for several releses and a major event.
To cut a short story long: because of vacations from March 14th to March 20th, Ad Noiseam is closed for the week. Emails and orders will be answered again starting March21st (next week Saturday). Don't panic, we'll come back.
Ready for drones, doomy jazz, dark atmospheres and female demons from the underworld? The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation (a.k.a. The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, for thos of you who haven't been listening) is promising this and much more with their forthcoming "Succubus" CD, which will be released on Ad Noiseam in late Spring / early Summer 2009.
Recorded during a jam session in early 2009, "Succubus" is freely inspired by Jess Franco's 1968 movie of the same title. This album will be presented live again on March 28th at Patronaat in Haarlem, 2008 (more information here). And scroll below for a trailer to this session.
While The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble are hard working on their upcoming full length album on Ad Noiseam (slightly postponed for a late summer / early Autumn released, and at the moment bearing the working titles "Here Be Dragons"), praises keep on coming in for their very recent "Mutations EP" (adn105), out now on CD, LP and digital:
-from Popmatters: "The production is that much more spooky, rich, and atmospheric, and the song structure that much more purposeful and realized. It seems they have struck a perfect symmetry in the studio as a group, feeding off one another and performing cohesively. There is not a wasted moment to be heard."
-from Earlabs: "a deep emotional work, demonstrating how the meeting of acoustic and electronic sounds in the best moments can end up in atmospheres of otherwordly beauty."
Scans of print from Germany's De:Bug and France's Nuke are below after the break.
Hint hint: The Teknoist's label, Ninja Columbo, has a new website online over at ninjacolumbo.co.uk . Head on there for more information about everybody's favorite gabber / d'n'b madman and his label's output, or for just plain old zombie loving.
