ts06ABOUT XADDAX:
Nick Sakes (Dazzling Killmen, Colossamite, Sicbay) and Chrissy Rossettie Sakes (The Hex, My Name is Rar-Rar, Iyaxia) form Xaddax — a kinetic, No Wave-y two piece from Kingston, NY. Sakes’ jagged guitar parts and legendary howls lurch across the backdrop of Rossettie’s haywire electronics, meandering synth, and frenzied drumming. The result is erratic and wild; a malfunctioning robot/injured werewolf hybrid. Their first album, "Counterclockwork", was released on SKiN GRAFT Records in 2012, and new material is in the works.

A new split 7” single with two new songs will be out in the Fall of 2017. Watch this space for an announcment soon!

ABOUT MOUNT SHASTA: Mount Shasta took the blues of Leadbelly, the raw power of the Stooges, the soul of James Brown and the volume of twin jet engines - mashed 'em together and spit out an incomparable, infectious noise barrage. Imagine Bo-Didley on cough syrup.

The band formed in 1993 under the guidance of ex-Dirt / Phantom 309 vocalist & guitarist John Forbes. Bassist Jenny White and drummer Jason Benson rounded out the original trio. The "Nodule” 7” single and comic book set was released the same year and was followed by the “Put The Creep On” LP which featured Shorty / U.S. Maple vocalist Al Johnson on guitar and backing vocals. Their dissonant deluge of hard-blues, swamp-boogie, noise-rock was further refined when guitarist Carl Brueggen joined the band, as heard on the Shakuhachi Surprise collaboration with Tokyo's Space Streakings and the “Who’s The Hottie” and "Watch Out” LPs (one of the first albums recorded at Electrical Audio Studios, under the knob twirling of “Debbie” Albini). The group disbanded in 2000, but are survived by John Forbes' current band Tijuana Hercules.

Throughout their run, Mount Shasta was renowned for it’s striking artwork. The “Nodule” comic book sports the published debut of comic and micro-brewery hero, Gumballhead The Cat, who would go on to appear on many of the band’s T-shirts and album covers. This shirt reproduces SKiN GRAFT’s original Mount Shasta T-Shirt from cartoonist Rob Syers, highlighting Gumballhead’s self-destructive tendencies.

Hi Everybody -

THE FLYING LUTTENBACHERS "Revenge Of The Flying Luttenbachers: Remastered"
is out today! Originally released over two decades ago, "Revenge" is now regarded as a milestone in extreme outsider music.  You can read more about the album in our previous updates, but don't take our word for it, here's what the press has to say:

“Revenge of the Flying Luttenbachers is a turning point, from punk jazz to metal jazz. Dispensing with horns, Walter (on drums) is joined by Chuck Falzone (My Name Is Rar-Rar) on guitar and Bill Pisarri (ZZZZZ) on bass, violin, clarinet, etc. The band has the texture and feel of traditional rock, but the songs are anything but. Quick bursts of noisy energy and improvisation are joined by extended guitar riffs and balls-out cock-rock - at times, the album resembles death metal, tempered by the sensibilities of avant-garde jazz.” - TROUSER PRESS

"Rarely will you find such a brilliant set of musicians…"
- ALTERNATIVE PRESS 

"Much more satisfying than a lot of the free-skree Japanese stuff doing the rounds” - THE WIRE

"Another good reason to quit your band - you can't do this yourself"
- YOUR FLESH

"An all-together different approach to music" - KERRANG!

"Mindblowingly exciting" - SPIN MAGAZINE

One of the Top 25 Albums of 1996 (along with Pearl Jam, Marilyn Manson, Beck, etc) - GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE

Hi Everybody -

YOWIE "Synchromysticism" is out today! ...mostly.

Here's what I mean - while we have the LPs and CDs in-stock and orders are shipping out lickety-split, the finished vinyl shipped from the pressing plant over three weeks late, making it impossible for Redeye Worldwide and our other distribution partners to have the LP in time to make the April 21st release date.

So - the vinyl edition of "Synchromysticism" has now been rescheduled to a May 5th in-store date. If you've asked your local record store to pre-order the vinyl for you, rest assured they will have it soon.

And if there are no record stores around, we invite you to order directly from us and we'll send it out right away.

Hi Everybody -

The Flying Luttenbachers are back. The new New York City-based trio, featuring Weasel Walter (drums), Tim Dahl (bass guitar) and Chris Welcome (guitar), will focus on new interpretations of classic material, while expanding the sonic possibilities into the present. March 2017 marks the first Flying Luttenbachers performances in more than a decade. The new band will be inaugurated in France over the course of seven shows - and if all goes well, there will be more to come.

THE FLYING LUTTENBACHERS: Tour of France 2017
March 17 - Le Temps Machine - Tours, France
March 18 - Les Agites du Bocal - Rennes, France
March 19 - La Dynamo - Nantes, France
March 20 - Weasel Walter lecture at University of Chicago/Paris
March 21 - Les Trinitaires - Metz, France
March 22 - Petit Bain - Paris, France
March 23 - L'Embobineuse - Marseille, France
March 24 - Mix'Art Myrys - Toulouse, France

The Flying Luttenbachers originally existed between 1991 and 2007, running a renegade stylistic gamut from hardcore Free Jazz improvisation to rigorous modernist composition, under the dictatorship of composer and instrumentalist Weasel Walter. Alumni of the group include experimental rock heavies Ed Rodriguez (Deerhoof / Colossamite / Gorge Trio), Mick Barr (Krallice), Jonathan Hischke (Hella / Holy Smokes) and Alex Perkolup (Lovely Little Girls / Cheer-Accident). Early incarnations of the Flying Luttenbachers featured noted improvisers Fred Lonberg Holm, Jeb Bishop, Hal Russell, and Ken Vandermark.

falzone

In 1995 Walter enlisted an entirely new line-up for The Flying Luttenbachers SKiN GRAFT Records’ debut. Imagine Derek Bailey, Immortal, No New York and Fushitsusha all rolled up into one.

Now regarded as a milestone in extreme outsider music, with the release of 1996’s “Revenge of The Flying Luttenbachers", Weasel submitted his own Anti-Life Equation: FREE JAZZ = DEATH METAL. 

To kick off SKiN GRAFT's "Year of Falzone" and celebrate the band's return, "Revenge" is being made available on vinyl for the first time in 20 years - and in a newly remastered MOD CD edition.

Hi Everybody -

This is Mark filling in for News Desk Reporter Jazzy Joe Romita. It's time to announce the third LP from YOWIE - but before we get into that, I should mention that over the last few months our Bandcamp Store has continued to balloon in size, and so I've updated our Catalog Page here at the website to allow folks to choose which storefront they prefer right at the onset.

FREEDOM OF CHOICE!

If you're looking for digital downloads or digital and physical bundles, head over to the Bandcamp Store - or you can visit our long standing (and newly updated) SKiN GRAFT Paypal Shop which has plenty of titles currently unavailable in the Bandcamp Store - including Distributed Items, T-Shirts and Merchandise - as well as some bargains here and there for those willing to rummage around.

Even more titles will be added to the Bandcamp Store in the weeks to come. The new YOWIE is available to pre-order in both shops, and you can preview YOWIE's "Absurdly Ineffective Barricade" at Bandcamp now!

Y O W I E - photo by Mabel Suen

Since 2000, St. Louis’ YOWIE has been perfecting a unique form of progressive rock that incorporates complex polyrhythms and guitar dissonance. Operating within its own unique idiom, YOWIE rejects rock music’s typical foundation of common time signature and standard melodic structures.

yowie
Special Edition LP
yowie
Compact Disc

For their 3rd album, “Synchromysticism,” the band has used these tools, as well as the drummer’s (a clinical psychologist) understanding of signal detection theory and delusional mood to convey complex phenomenological concepts in a highly visceral form. This album, the first with guitarist Christopher Trull (formerly of Grand Ulena) marks a new level of ambition in terms of conceptual complexity, synthesizing opposing compositional approaches into a distinctive style that simultaneously elicits feelings of euphoria, perplexity, dread... and an inexorable urge to dance.

TRACK LISTING:
1. Ineffable Dolphin Communion
2. Mysterium Tremendum
3. Absurdly Ineffective Barricade
4. The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You
5. The Reason Your House Is Haunted Can Be Found On This Microfiche

“Extreme technical proficiency is taken to new places. There’s a slippery, rubbery quality to the sound and playing too. Though hyper-precise, there’s lots of swing to the drumming, lots of bent notes and sliding on guitar strings. When Yowie does fall into a groove - for about 6 seconds - it’s never in 4/4 time. It’s hard to believe these 3 people found each other to form this band.” - No-Core

"In the midst of some of the most virtuosically talented and respected musicians playing today, Yowie is singular... Watching them live is like witnessing a reptile birth a human; utterly perplexing, yet amazing.” - KDHX

yowie
Poster: Front

“As frenetic and intense as anything you'd hear from the likes of The Dillinger Escape Plan but without the vocals or as much distortion... could match any tech metal or grind band in a contest for intensity.” - Dont Count On It

“To say that Yowie exists outside of genre understates the band's utter lack of convention. Yowie naturally, and somehow seamlessly, undermines classic notions of style or song structure.” - StL Mag

"The climax of rock music. This is outsider music for our entire dimension. No band has had this sort of vision since Beefheart marinaded us with tales of Big Joan's anatomy. In the dozens of times I've listened to this album I've never heard the same album twice." - Loving Peter Cetera
