FLOOD BEAST, which is Josh Russell of DAGGERING and CAVES CAVERNS and he contributed an untitled track of killer cassette tape manipulations, swirling electronics, stabbing clang moments, rhythmic loops, noise-dub fuckery...somehow chill AND violent. BP side is 6 tracks of stoned-out, drilling pedals, crank contact mics, rusty bass string distortion, and there's also a beat driven synth jam. Our good friend and collaborator BILL PORTER did the cover art!!!! I love my friends and we love you, so here's our tape...

I recently had the pleasure of getting to illustrate and design a T-shirt image from one of my favorite artists, CRANK STURGEON!!! He's been "cranking" out bizarre noise releases, unique live performance events, his distinctive visual art, sick contact mics and other nifty sound gadgets since the 90s!!! We collaborated together in 1998 on the SUPPRESSION with CRANK STURGEON/ MISOPSYCHIA split 7 inch and it was great to work together again via emails on this shirt design!!!!! Crank is also selling these shirts and other amazing treasures on his Etsy site. You can also order the shirts here, they come in grey or black shirts. Please specify size and color when ordering. Crank on babies!!!!!!

We here at C.N.P. are proud to announce our newest release, the PCRV/ BROWN PISS split tape!!! PCRV from Billings, MT is Matt Taggart, collage and noise artist extraordinaire who is also responsible for the excellent FLUXUS MONTANA label. He provides most of the images for the cover and 15 minutes of free improvised, pummeling, harsh noise that will leave blisters on your ear holes!! Plenty of low end crunch and high end sonics!!! He even donated a drop of his own blood for the inside cover art!!!! The BROWN PISS side has the rusty BP gurgle and mixes in field recorded sounds and cassette tape loops from a Henry Lee Lucas confessions tape. The front cover is a collaboration collage between the 2 artists. In total, the 2 sides result in a 30 minute, terrifying, roller coaster ride through an electronic hell-scape....sign up here:

I'm very excited about this one!!! I started to digitize this a month ago, only getting as far as the 7MON and Suppression tracks, and just couldn't find the time to get back to it. Fortunately, through the kind efforts of CHARLES DOUGLAS HOFFMAN who appears on this as GOK, the original AUDIO TERRORISM cassette compilation is now available for everyone to enjoy!!! Not to be confused with the 1998 CD compilation entitled: "AUDIO TERRORISM: The Soundtrack For Weirdness And Blind Hostility" that we co-released with SATAN'S PIMP and HEARTPLUG. No, this one was the first compilation I ever compiled in the very early stages of C.N.P. I put this one together from my bedroom in 1994 through letter writing and tape trading with my new friends from all over the world. And it was a glorious time indeed!!! This one has so many of my favorite bands/ projects, I was completely amazed at some of the greats who agreed to send me a track or tracks!!! The full track-listing can be found here on DISCOGS. There are 121 tracks in 90 minutes!! Appearing on the compilation, in this order, are: GENITAL MASTICATOR, KISSES AND HUGS, SHADOWED VEIL, ENEMY SOIL, NOISE WASTE, JERMFLUX, EXTREME HAIR STENCH, SUPPRESSION, L.O.C., STARVED AND DELIRIOUS, FECEL-CIDE a.k.a. PERSONASNONGRATAS, ANATOMICAL CONSUMPTION, CESS GARGLE, RECTAL PUS, PILE OF EGGS, JUST KIDS, GRUNT, RABIA, COLLOID, MAD RECITAL, ENEMA SYRINGE, SPAZZ, JAUNDICE, SEVEN MINUTES OF NAUSEA, ARSESLAUGHTER, GOK, SON OF DOG, CLITORIS TRAFFICKER, EXPENDABLE CITIZEN, THINKSHIT, TRACI LORDS LOVES NOISE, DISCORDANCE AXIS, MATERIA ORGANICA, SONIC DISORDER & MORMON TABERNACLE CHOIR, MAKE IT STOP, BUTTHOLE LIPS, ATROFIA CEREBRAL, GLAUCOMA, AUDICION IRRITABLE, CRIPPLE BASTARDS, & JANGLE!! Whew!!!! Thanks again, CHUCK HOFFMAN, for tackling this monumental task!!! It is greatly appreciated!! You can download all of this madness in MP3 format HERE!!!!!!!! Chuck's notes on this rip: "This is ripped & scanned from my well-loved copy so forgive the coffee stains and highlighter all over the cover. The tape has no damage and still sounds great considering. I didn't do any cleanup or hiss reduction but I did edit out pause-button clicks and space between tracks and bump the volume up by varying amounts to try to mitigate the high variation between the various contributions." It's also available in FLAC, HERE!!!!

OUT NOW!!!!! This 5 track cassette is the first BTs release featuring the "mutant drum-kit" which is multiple drums and found objects that the four members pummel in a green brained haze. Sean Cassidy's haunting saxophone invocations weave in and out of the rhythmic cacophony, holding it all together. Three of the tracks were recorded by the band themselves on four track cassette in their practice space and the other two were captured by Silver Persinger while the band were performing live at Strange Matter in Richmond, VA. This first run of the tape is limited to 30 copies...

We're honored to be releasing this split tape with Japan's FACIALMESS (Kenny Sanderson) and it's fitting that the split is with Richmond, VA's BROWN PISS (Jason Hodges) as the two collaborated on the SUPPRESSION with FACIALMESS 7 inch on Clean Plate Records back in 1998 and in 2013 The FACIALMESS "MUTWAWA MESS-UPS" for GRINDCORE KARAOKE!!! Now the two deliver this disgusting C-47 with over 20 minutes of face-peeling, rust-coated, sickness from each artist!!! Black and white glossy covers designed by Brown Piss and Facialmess. White cassettes with stickers. Digital copies for the non-tapers here!!!!!

Starting today this blog will be the primary web presence for C.N.P. Records and to kick it off we're going to have a sale of some of our classic CD and vinyl releases. LPs are $6 postpaid, CDs are $5 ppd, and 7 inch records are $3 ppd. We're practically giving this shit away!!! Plus I need room in my closet for upcoming releases...there will be some sick releases on C.N.P. and friend's labels this summer and fall from MUTWAWA, SUPPRESSION, and BERMUDA TRIANGLES!!! A couple are splits so there will some other freaks in the mix....
BERMUDA TRIANGLES "Reptilian Intervention" LP cnpr-19 (2010) 9 songs, hand screen-printed covers by the band. An early document of BTs blueprints at percussive, world-music, post-punk...and a very accurate capturing in the studio of their live sound at the time!!
"KILLER WORKOUT MIX" compilation CD cnpr-16 (2008) This is one of our proudest releases that no one's heard...it includes an unreleased (and one of my favorite of hers) TICKLEY FEATHER track, BERMUDA TRIANGLES, HALLELUJAH!, DAMNED HUMAN RACE, THE YES SIRS, HO-AX, NARWHALZ, LA MERE VIPERE, AMOEBA MEN, SHAMS, BIG EATS, MAGIC JEWELS, OPENING FLOWER HAPPY BIRD, LEPER COLONY, ADULT MOAN, MOTHER FALCON, YOKO BONER, D.J. RENALDO, MOUNTAIN HUSBAND, BUCK GOOTER, SILVER NINJAS, WIGGER MOM, SUPPRESSION, [man speaking chinese], and INSOMNIACROBATS!!! A total bizarre, nightmarish hell-scape of sounds and a strange document of the time....
SUPPRESSION "Amputated Brain Stem" CD 1993-2000 Discography cnpr-15 (2008) 64 tracks, includes their material from splits with legends in the game DESPISE YOU, GRIEF, CRIPPLE BASTARDS, DAHMER, and MISOPSYCHIA!!! Also includes all of the compilation tracks from the era, collaborations with CRANK STURGEON and FACIALMESS, plus some unreleased "gems!"
TICKLEY FEATHER/ BERMUDA TRIANGLES split 7 inch cnpr-12 (2007) It was a fine moment indeed, an honor if you will, to release this one...we're big Tickley Feather fans around here and to have her on C.N.P. wax? fuck yeah!!! What you get here is TFs mastery of weirdo, outsider-pop and BTs as a solo creep in a bedroom...
THE YES SIRS "Dos Locos" LP cnpr-10 (2006) The duo of Adam Perry (P.C.P. Roadblock/ Enemy Soil) and Jason Hodges (BTs/ Suppression/ MUTWAWA) started here in Richmond, VA where some of this was recorded and ended as "through the U.S. Postal Service" bi-coastal collaborations. Which is how the rest of these songs were documented. Stand-up drum kit/ murder-drums meets junk electronics and percussion with paranoiac vocal yelps and commands....red vinyl and the covers were screen-printed on black DJ style sleeves.
THE AMOEBA MEN "Enter:" 7 inch cnpr-6 (2004) 1st recorded document of this now defunct Richmond 3-piece. 3 tracks: the dance-throb post-punk of 'Shit-Tubes,' the Six Finger Satellite worship of 'Clone,' and the bizarre noise-country of 'Lonesome Buckaroo.' An odd piece o' wax...
SUPPRESSION/ ATOMATRON split 7 inch (2002) Damn, this one is old as fuck!!! Psychedelic- grindcore from Suppression on this one and Buttholes-esque weirdo bass/ drums noise-rock from Atomatron...good times...
