Cooley, wondering if you saw this.

A third recent cassette on Myasis Tapes is Floods by Robe., an increasingly intriguing duo from Columbus, Indiana. Their name, Robe., always has a period after itólike: Robe. These guys revel in deep-well sonar-death where the skies threaten to break in a rain of shrieking ghoul shred. Wicked from all points of access. These tapes are super limited and deserve to be experienced, as all these outfits represent the crucial excitement alive and rampant in this amazing underworld of sound psychosis. New Swedish cassette label Klorofyll Kassetter has reared its scintillating hoof with a raw magik ritual jammer by Luva, a wide-blue-eyed blonde lad who gets sweet acid rhythms happening to create fresh portals. Lovely junk yes.

From the Thurston/Cooley monthly article in this month's Arthurmag.

Atsonicpark, from now on you are obliged to feel enthusiastic about 'The Eternal' forever, re-think your opinions on 'Rather Ripped', and personally apologise to him for what you did to his poems. Robe is indeed your best music so far. Well done, man.

Will Atsonicpark stop liking his own band now that a generation of "people who suck Thurston's tastes" are going to like it??

I agree to sarramkrop, I enjoyed every single Robe release very very much so far! and the album before the lst one is burned into my mind as the "empty-berlin-soundtrack" like forever, which is still a good thing

Actually, he'd get more cred in the noise scene if he got the props from Thurston but proceeded to slag everything Sonic Youth has done since Master Dik. Even better if Ecstatic Peace! puts out a record for them, then he should mock Sonic Youth whenever possible and laugh about taking "the devil's money". Never mind that Robe. aren't noise either, that doesn't matter in the noise scene if you are vocal enough about not liking Sonic Youth.

I have to thank Thurston for getting me straight about the "." though. I've listed them in several playlists without it.

I've only heard hadramaut [phage tapes - 2009] and it's very good.
Thanks again.

Hahaha thanks guys, I had seen this but would feel silly mentioning it on here! Even though I do self-promote (a little bit, in every post, at least in my sig), I didn't want to brag or anything!!...

But yeah, I saw that a couple months ago and we are going to continue to send Thurston music as long as he digs what we're doing. Thanks for the support!!

This is funny. You know, she never did wear that Scissor Shock shirt she had me mail her.

As for Thurston, he has a great taste in music. I don't agree with all his musical opinions, but who can I agree with, completely? You know. The dude's heard a lot of shit, and he knows what he's talking about. I question certain bands he likes, I'm not going to name any names, but I am definitely honored that he likes Robe.

As for the new album TIME DILATION, al shabbaray, the version I uploaded actually was a bit incomplete. We finished it a couple days later. Anyway, Blackest Rainbow is releasing that and a new Aidan Baker disc the same day. Another honor, to be working with a label that has released so many great bands. Anyway, it's limited to 200 copies, and personally I think if you're going to get a Robe. album, this is the one to get. It's the darkest, filthiest, and nastiest. It's probably not the best, but whatever. It's very Messiaen-influenced drone.

As for Scissor Shock, I'm working on the final Scissor Shock album, A Shrine to Salvaged Junk, which will be released by Placenta Records when it's done. It's very backwoodsy, kinda like Caroliner or Sun City Girls' "Jack's Creek", lots of finger picking guitars, banjos, and such. There's still some drum machine, but it's not crazy freak out drum machine shit from before.. most of the percussion is home made. Um, I keep telling people it'll be the final album, it probably won't be the LAST EVER but certainly for a while. I've been working on that project for 6 years and quite frankly I've taken it as far as it could go. The whole point was to keep completely reinventing the band with every album. I sorta did that but I dunno. I feel like... Robe. is more important to me, I'm more interested in creating these soundscape droney worlds rather than writing "songs". Don't get me wrong, we still plan out Robe. songs, but Scissor Shock songs are WAY more difficult to write.

Basically, I'm doing a surf band called THE DEATH POWDERS, just some small thing, only two members probably (overdubbed bass), will have samples of that up eventually. But my main gig is Robe., and I'm glad people here are digging it. It's a dream band for me to be in. It's like.. the stuff I've always wanted to make but never had the courage TO make. Because drone, doom, ambient, whatever is so played out. I always felt like.. fuck, I gotta do something really INSANE or no one's going to give a shit. But lately I've felt like, 'Okay, I can let feedback .. uh .. feed back for a few minutes and it might be compelling." So, Robe. is my main musical project.

But I'm also going to start devoting my time to making experimental films. More on that later.

Sorry for typing so much, but I just feel overwhelmed by everyone's love and support.
