  • Loren Connors' 'Departing' Series Hits Six

    October 10, 2016

    It's another chapter in Loren Connors' ongoing The Departing of a Dream vision. Just months after reviving it from a ten-year hiatus with the release of Volume V -- Loren Connors issues Volume VI, another movement of saturated guitar tones, dissonance and impermanence.

    "Gone are the slow-moving bass lines and the identifiable pedal-craft of the first go-around. What’s left is the sound of Connors alone in a room full of people, drawing out gradually fading tones and percussive echoes. Each note does the work of a Webernian orchestral passage, each interval is a look into the grave, and the distant chatter of the crowd on this live recording seems impossibly far away" -- Bill Meyer, Still Single

    The 10-inch record in out Oct. 14 in an edition of 550 copies with cover art by Connors.

    Dow Jones and The Industrials Return

    September 19, 2016

    It happened. Dow Jones and the Industrials reformed for three shows in Indiana this past weekend to celebrate the release of the long-awaited Can't Stand The Midwest 1979-1981 anthology. 

    In short -- they killed it. 

    Original members Greg Horn and Chris Clark were joined by Vess Ruhtenberg on keyboards/synths and drummer Mike Doskocil. Mr. Science made apperances by a video link to sing his twisted anthem "Latent Psychosis" during two of the performances. 

    Thanks to fans throughout Indiana, the Midwest, Canada, New York and beyond who made the trek. Dow Jones shared the stage with both versions of the Gizmos -- the original 1976 version and the 1979 version -- in Bloomington on Sept. 17 for an epic show.

  • Dow Jones and the Industrials -- Finally

    July 19, 2016

    Let's just say, it's been years in the making... Dow Jones and the Industrials' anthology Can't Stand The Midwest 1979-1981 will be released on Sept. 16, 2016 as a 2xLP+DVD set. Yeah, CD is an option too. 

    This is the definitive story told through 29 remastered songs -- including 1980 Hoosier Hysteria LP, 1981 7-inch EP, 9 unreleased studio tracks plus compilation, demo and live recordings -- liner notes by Gizmos' Dale Lawrence and Keith Smith's unpublished photographs of the Indiana punk scene. Plus, there's a DVD of the wild Sept. 1980 performance at at the legendary Indianapolis punk club Third Base. 

    And if that is not enough, we dug up and polished five songs by Mr. Science -- the Industrials' synth wizz and DIY producer. Those are available as a 7-inch EP in the deluxe mail order only version of the album.
