BLOOD RHYTHMS LP cover art, hand made LP covers

 I spent every night for over a month, and several hundred dollars on supplies, making hand made LP covers for the upcoming BLOOD RHYTHMS LP "Assembly".   A total of 112 covers exist, although only 100 of those will be available.  Of a total of 200, this is co released with RRRECORDS, with another 100 hand made covers by Ron Lessard / Emil Beaulieau, in his inimitable fashion, this time focused on medical illustration books.  They all look excellent from him.  All of the inserts are hand numbered and hand stamped numerous times with custom made stamps.  I cannot wait for it to finally be finished.  It has been pushing since April, with one failed test pressing due to "electro static", another set of "heating problems" with the plating company, and a "staggering" shorthandedness with the pressing company.    There is still a small twinkle of a possibility that this LP will be ready for the show on September 7th, but in any case, these will not be available for sale on the internet, and they will be available at least as a pre order at The Empty Bottle.  One can purchase the cover/sleeve, and get the LP later.    The 100 that I made include an anti record.  Here are some selections for my hand made LP covers. A good amount of LP covers will be hung around the Empty Bottle on display, to be chosen at a reduced price as either a release party or "pre order" deal. 

"In 1981, Mitch Enderle was the first collaborator with Dan Burke recording as Psychotic Dub, which later became Illusion Of Safety. In 1985 Mitch released a cassette on Complacency called Dead Tech. This work was Industrial music described as "noise like it used to be", featuring distorted drum machine, loops, samples, synth, guitar, and vocals very similar to early SPK, Nocturnal Emission, and Test Department. Longtime collaborators Mitch and Dan will be recreating some of this material for only the second time ever for this performance at Empty Bottle"


BLOOD RHYTHMS is ARVO (ZYLO)'s industrial noise project, often as a collaborative umbrella, but not always. He has been active since 2000 and currently likes to use layers of similar sources such as trumpets or power tools on sheet metal, or do raw, feedback laden performances with amplified objects and primal screams and lyrics about body politics and the alchemy of grief. For this event, Arvo will be rekindling the spirit of his previous (loosely labelled) "brass ensembles" that happened regularly between 2007 and 2010. DEATH FACTORY, aka MICHAEL KRAUSE’s returns with their old school industrial noise atmospherics. His ”noisescapes” run the gamut from heavy electronics to death industrial, paying tribute to bands from THROBBING GRISTLE to MERZBOW, cult movies and “weird sounds from factories in the northwest Chicago, IL neighborhood.”
