Edition of 50.
Encounters is the continuing collaboration between members of Jacksonville-based dark lords NRIII and Husere Grav. Rooms is the result of an inspired improv session twisted and altered beyond all recognition, thirty minutes of blackened ambience and electronic regrets. The listener is left with no easy answers. Edition of 50; 25 red cassettes and 25 blue cassettes.
Forgetfulness b/w Trembling.
Edition of 25.
In the cruel fooftnotes of rock history, Beach Party may go down simply as being the side project of Trenton Tarpits of the 2416. But, god, was it so much more. Tarpits and an ever-rotating group of collaborators struck a surpisingly somber note as Beach Party, combining Bauhaus and Joy Division with Jan And Dean and The Shangri-Las. Teenage deathsongs crooned by a group of malcontents clad uniformly in pink and black with white facepaint, kabukit-style. Their recorded output up to this point consisted of a sole EP on Infintesmal and then prolonged silence. This second installment in the popnihil Bootleg series brings to light wo previously unreleased Beach Party tracks: 1. Forgetfulnesss, a solo accoustic lament and 2. a live version of Trembling that was the Patient Zero moment for a whole new generation of goth music in Jacksonville.
popnihiol investigators are curently trying to unearth the long-lost Beach Party EP. Watch this space.
Epiphanies. Vol. 1: Christian Death.
By Matthew Moyer.
pop013. Edition of 40.
20pp. Quarter-size digest.
“On the occasion of the 15th Anniversary of the passing of Rozz
Williams.” Matthew Moyer mixes personal and impersonal memories
alongside outright hero worship and music biography for this brief and
sometimes poignant zine. Because it’s been too long and no one else
wrote it first.
To mark the release of two new popnihil tapes and and a zine, we’re throwing a little party at CoRK Arts District. We’ll have live music from several popnihil artists and brand new tapes from Encounters, Beach Party, MREOW, and Burnt Hair available.
Live actions from:
Encounters (blackened atmospherics from members of Husere Grav and NRIII)
Burnt Hair (coldwave for the spring time)
Proud/Father (Analogue synth and tape collage from New Orleans)
CoRK East Gallery. 2689 Rosselle Street.
No cover. Bring some pocket money for tapes. Early show, will start promptly at 9pm. We’ve got some surprises planned.
Growing Up Sleeping.
Edition of 30.
“Growing Up Sleeping is the sound of living a lie. A lifelong struggle to agree with yourself, condensed into 60 minutes of harsh noise/power electronics. Heavily influenced by my childhood as a non-believer in an intensely christian town in Texas and the mental weight that comes with being in that position. Included with the tape is a small art booklet. The images are collages made from a book I found and illustrations I’ve had lying around for almost two years.” – Dylan Tietze
One hour of bracing noise from Dylan Tietze, under the guise of FAKER. Tietze is one of the more prolific artists in the north Florida noise scene, in terms of both live work and recording. Restlessly creative, no two works by Tietze sound alike, as he is constantly experimenting with new techniques and sound sources. The material on Growing Up Sleeping is claustrophobic and oppressive, an attempt to purge through creation. Includes a small zine of collage works. All designs and artwork by FAKER.
cs10, one sided.
Edition of 25.
Raw vocal exorcisms equally redolent of Whitehouse and Kurt Schwitters, from solo artist and Boy+Girl driving force AG Davis. Two covers available. Edition of 25 and no more. Will it be his last? No digital component.
