Arvo did a guest mix for the radio show Electronic Tuesday on Radio 1 Prague.   It features a mixture of his favorite electronic music and noise across a variety of genres.  Some tracks by Imminent Starvation, Dead Tech, Subliminal, Mnemonists, Maria Zerfall, NAMANAX, and so on...  Previous episodes have included interviews with Z'ev, Snog, and Paolo Bandera (of Sigillum S, SShe Retina Stimulants).   Thanks to Electronic Tuesday and Radio 1 Prague!

Arvo gave a brief interview with Ditlev Buster on Electronic Cottage, a new community-minded site for experimental enthusiasts.   The interview is short and to the point, but thorough, including scans of old NO PART OF IT newsletters from when the label operated outside of the internet, "Assembly" LP covers, live videos, and the like. 

Here is an excerpt:  As each questionable machine breathes its last sputtering breath, and the pools of battery acid begin to dry, leaving their discolored epitaphs on the cement floor, the listener knows that they were in the professionally trained hands of master noise-makers at the top of their craft.


Marlo Eggplant's side from the recent series of split tapes on NO PART OF IT was aired on Tabs Out, a long-running cassette only podcast, along with  Somnoroase Păsărele, La Forêt Rouge, Christian Mirande, Legion of Mary, and others.   

Arvo contributed a review of his favorite noise tape in a new zine of cassette reviews curated by Hal McGee.

 Arvo's collected collaborations with Kommisar Hjuler und Mama Baer have been released in a 3 tape set.  Each copy is a unique piece of art based on original material from Kommisar Hjuler's initial releases, which were in bound folio folders with mixed pages of content that is dada in nature, as a whole.  Three tapes are affixed to a board and integrated into collage art, which itself has a clothes hanger affixed to it for wall hanging.  Each copy is assembled, with an apparent over-abundance of found pornography, by the head of the label.  We are under the impression that several rusted nails are glued to every copy as well.   The content collects 2012's 2xCDR "UND" release, which was limited to 9 copies, as well as 2 other pieces which were extremely limited in a similar nature, including Kommisar Hjuler und Mama Baer's impromptu rendition of segments from the film, Barbarella, with soundtrack accompaniment/fucked up sounds by Arvo Zylo.   Extended material is also included.   The Swedish label Obskyr Records is now offering pre-order on discogs.  The release is limited to 33 hand-numbered copies.
