Radio Shock "Trapper Keeper" 7" out now
Radio Shock's "Trapper Keeper" single is out today with a cover of Wolf Eyes' "Imagine Yourself As Me" as the b-side. (the b-side featuring guest vocals by the talented Admiral Grey, vocalist for neo-No Wave band Cellular Chaos) It comes on a green vinyl 7" - or this cool deal we came up with: buy the download for $3 and get a poster with the cover art mailed to you at no extra charge. Both options include a download of an EP of "Trapper Keeper" remixes! Go here for either option, or to download just the digital tracks for "Name Your Price."

Decoherence is born
The big news is that Decoherence Records exists! The first LP release is officially out on Nov.5 and it's a great one. Form A Log's "The Two Benji's." Everyone who got a copy of the limited cassettes on the band's recent tour has raved about it, and it sounds even better on vinyl.
The 2nd LP release is already lined up, though there's no release date yet: The nation's top rhythmic noise jammer Mincemeat or Tenspeed has recorded a new album which is a total reinvention of his slamming noise jams. Can't wait to put that one out into the world.
