Regler LP Coming Soon

Quemada is excited to announce the release of a new material from Regler.  Regler is the workings of Mattin (Billy Bao and a thousand other projects and collaborations) on guitar and Anders Bryngelsson (Brainbombs) on drums. Over the course of five releases on five different labels, Mattin and Anders had sought to mimic, distill ,and distort a different musical genre using the barest of instruments and the slimmest of guiding principles.  The game is to reduce the genre to a simple rule and the follow that rule without change for however long the release’s medium will allow.  The results are the most maximal and immersive form minimalism we’ve heard in some time. 

So far the boys have undertaken dub, d-beat, free jazz, noise core, harsh noise wall and classical music.  This new LP on Quemada tackles techno and drone with the help of Henrik Andersson on bass.  The results for both are as meditative as they are disorienting.  Techno (Regel #6) sounds like a recording made just outside the club played back at top volume in a padded room for an audience of one as the lights gradually fade in and out.  Drone (Regel #7) sounds like a recording the inside of a florescent light bulb played in a metal shack during an ice storm. Beautiful. 

Due out in just a couple weeks. Keep your eyes peeled!

Fall Update, Part II

Prepare yourselves for the impending release of new material from Lynton Denovan’s solo project Sacred Product. Our man Lynton has being laying riff damage over Melbourne for years on a single minded mission to blunt the senses and kill the brain cells in bands like the sorely missed Satanic Rockers and current miscreants Assetstripper. All the while, our man has kept up his monumental solo project, Sacred Product.  

And let me tell you, $ A Ride is the definitive Sacred Product record.  Caustic observations that encapsulate the mundane struggle of the  modern man from calling in sick to drunk driving your bicycle into a river.  These are our anthems. Lynton played every damn thing on the record, drew the cover and sacrificed the all goats needed to birth this creature into the world.  Go ahead, call in sick, pull the shades, revel in it.  Available in the store and elsewhere on November 6th.

Fall Update, Part 1

Know its been quiet here in Quemada headquarters, but got we two new records this fall.

First up is a prickly Greymouth 12inch. The duo of Mark Sadgrove (guitar) and Mark Anderson (drums) are a couple of New Zealand expats based in Japan with only a handful of releases to document their decade or so existence. So, we suppose its excusable if you’re not in the loop. The best way to describe them to a neophyte is to image a Back from the Grave band that was weened on Operation of Sonne and fronted by a teenage Robert Ashley. THAT would make some sense. But it doesn’t come close to describing the sound one hears in the throes of a white knuckled fever dream, now does it? Available in the store and elsewhere on November 6th(-ish) and watch this space for Part II of the update....

In the meantime:

Late Spring Distro: All Gone

Just picked up a couple seriously great tapes from All Gone to help up ride out the Spring. Get them in the store

Band Without A Name CS: We were all bummed about the passing of Roachclip. This tape is attempt from most of them dudes to do something “post-roachclip.” Guess it didn’t stick for em. Hell they couldn’t even come up with a band  name. They DID manage a “recording session” and deemed it worthy for wider circulation. Let me tell you, we’re damn lucky they did so. Yeah, there are some of those classic Roachclip flourishes, but these are some confused,  messy dirges, full of barbs, that sometimes bring to mind Los Llamarada and veer into Fuckin' Flyin' A-Heads territory.  Get dumb. $7.50 

Blue Suede Platforms S/T CS: Flamboyantly downcast pop featuring tortured sensitive yelpins a’ la the first Frogs record. Like a resurrected Jack Smith fronting a London home recording outfit from the late 70s.  Think this is the second tape from this oddball Liverpool group. Here's hopin for tons more. Absolutely killer.   $7.50

Spring Distro Update Part1

Recently added some tapes from Albert's Basement to the store. Check em out!

Scrabbled “Live” CS (AB 67)
Scrabbled’s debut tape on Virtual Cool completely won us over with its woozy anthems and wobbly punkish jabs. This here tape of live performances is a worthy follow up.  The vitriol is more up front on this one and one can SEE the anger and frustration on the two (!!!) versions of New Pig City, but the pop sensibilities are still very much intact. Best tape we heard since the last Scrabbled tape. Rumors abound of a full length on an American label.  $8

They Spunks “A Sporran of Carrots” CS (AB 68)
Psychotic back porch jams from Auckland of the highest order. Perfect for beer and horseshoes. They Spunks have been playing around for a while playing around for a couple years now. Hard to believe its taken this long for a recording to surface. The more surprising when you take into account the pedigree of the boys in the band (members of Axemen, Pumice, Constant Pain). $8

Sam Bakers “At Home” CS (AB 62)
Future anthropologists are gonna have quite the time making sense of this one. Hell, modern ones may scratch their heads too. This debut from Sam Bakers is one of the oddest releases from Albert’s Basement in some time.  Billed by the label as a comedy album, Bakers, a former member of Drunk Elk, delivers a feverish collage of the witticisms and/or delusions accompanied by a TV with bad reception and an AM radio.  $8

Elli and Bev "Might Not Look Like it to You" CS (QUE 011/AB 64)
Cassette version of the 12 co-release from Quemada and Albert's Basement. If you haven't heard it on tape, have you really heard it? $8

Go to the Quemada store to check out some sounds and to buy buy buy!
