Cricket [fucking] Cemetery

So, recently my friend Ian pulled the willing trigger, and finally started his own record label:

CRICKET CEMETERY

While I will surely speak a volume on this later (especially as I am a contributing write to the label’s site), for now I simply wanted to loose a small word.

With a firm background in many forms and functions of sound, I can’t think of a more apt individual, at present, to start their own label. While I am champing at the bit to hear the myriads of noise that will be at play here, Ian has damned all conflict of interest, and started things off with a release for his own (excellent) band, Lions and Tigers and Whales.

I can’t say enough good things about this band either (Though, in case you missed it, here is a heaping dose of those sayings.)

With a description like:

“Dark bleak shrieking hardcore from the district. Members of Time of Cholera & American Nightmare & A Day in Black and White. Three songs recorded live at inner ear. 300 copies. Covers hand printed on grill cloth taken from vintage Sunn speaker cabinets.”

You know it’s got to be good. Also, in case you haven’t yet clicked on that above link, I was on hand to bear witness to the 7″ birthing process:

At any and all rates, you should absolutely check in on the cemetery from time to time to see what new is popping out of the ground. (I’m not sure what is on the black horizon myself, but I did hear-tell of a State Violence release, which one would be d-based to miss.)
