snacktime - catholic guilt @ apop (record store day 2012)

• April 23rd, 2012

The intersection of Cherokee Street and Oregon Avenue was the epicenter of a massive rumbling freakout on Saturday as APOP Records roped off the street outside to unleash some of St. Louis's craziest acts on the general public. Catholic Guilt's stunning set centered around their particular interpretation of some old Ngozi Family tunes (look it up). Dingus is very pleased with the recordings he got- is it live or is it paradoxal?

snacktime - phoned nil trio

• April 17th, 2012

unreleased PHONED NIL TRIO!    a Paradoxal Pterodactyl EXCLUSIVE!

"Phoned Nil Trio is the harsh noise/free improv group consisting of Peter J Woods (xALLxFORxTHISX, FTAM), Neil Gravander (Lucky Bone, ex-Fahri) and Dan Schierl (Dan of Earth, ex-Aluminum Knot Eye). The sounds are spastic and totally awkward, combining harsh static blasts with synth pulses, tape hiss, arbitrary vocal samples, and long silences in a way that barely holds itself together. Sounds awkwardly cut in and out, slowly reaching a point of equilibrium only to have it ruined by the next jarring idea, leaving the audience constantly in a state of intriguing confusion. Live, the group matches its bizarre sounds with a strange theatricality, including the band brewing a free pot of coffee for the audience at every show during the performance (the percolator often doubling as a musical instrument as well).”

also, a heads up- Peter J. Woods returns to St. Louis with Lucky Bone in tow on August 8th, playing with friend of the show The Night Grinder, at LNAC.  Do it.

snacktime - the party bus is leaving

• February 27th, 2012

The current revision of the Love, Kingsford lineup is no joke.  Eric Donton pounds the drums like he never got up from behind them, Rick Boyle continues to thump out hot bass licks, guitar duties are split by the doubly dangerous duo of Jeph Van Hagar and Ryan McCormick (who was sorely missed in his three years or so absence from the stage), freeing up Tim Dotson to sing, dance and jump around as the undeniably charismatic front man that anyone who has ever met him knows him to be.  In this recording captured live by Dingus, they start their set last Friday at the Way Out Club with the announcement that a hundred people are walking out the door, and the boys obligingly supply appropriate exit music...
