Radio Shock “Fast Breeder” music video + TOUR!

Filed under: news,shows — Tags: , , , , , , — admin @ 9:00 AM October 9, 2015

Music Video + October Tour!

I want to share some cool things which I’ve been working on! Last year I went on a short tour through the midwest in October and shot some POV video all along the way. This has been edited into a music video to the song “Fast Breeder” (from a tape EP available for download from Suite309). Please check it out and share it if you think it’s cool. Watch this video and experience what it’s like to be Radio Shock touring solo! See: Cats! Basements! Broken guitar strings! Lots of driving!

STREAM NEW TAPE

Welcome to 2014, you can hear the new Radio Shock release direct through the etherweb right here:


https://suite309.bandcamp.com/album/romanse-is-the-death-of-intellect

Of course you can buy a tape there too, $7.50 including shipping from Suite309 or only $2 for a download. That’s less than the price of a subway ride and then you can listen on your next subway ride.

BIG SINCERE THANKS to everyone who has listened, supported, helped, said something nice, said anything about Radio Shock past, present, or future. I’d probably keep doing it even without you, but it still means a lot to me. See some of you soon!

New tape, Brooklyn shows, midwest tour in October!

Filed under: news,shows — Tags: , , , , , — admin @ 4:31 PM September 29, 2014

NEW MUSIC

“Romanse is the Death of Intellect” cassette on Suite309 out OCT. 7

6 new tracks, the best Radio Shock recordings so far in my opinion, being put out by Suite309, a new tape label out of Cleveland. The physical copies are in a really small edition, so if you like physical media, act fast. Go here to hear 1 track and order right now:
http://suite309.bandcamp.com

$7.50 including shipping from Suite309 or only $2 for a download.

This website already had some nice things to say about Suite309 and their forthcoming releases.

BROOKLYN SHOWS

Tapes will also be for sale in person at upcoming shows, including these 2 in Brooklyn:

OCT. 11 at The Silent Barn
OCT. 15 at Death by Audio

I’m breaking the NYC rule of keeping shows 2 weeks apart here, but these shows are both amazing and very different from one another, so the only rational decision is to attend both. I’ll probably play entirely different sets at each.

Sat. Oct.11 at The Silent Barn
603 Bushwick Ave. ∅ 8PM ∅ $10
FB event: https://www.facebook.com/events/729170140473782/

this has become a mini-noisefest with this outrageous lineup, including some straight-up legends:
Bastard Noise & Anthony Saunders collab
Clang Quartet (NC)
Maria Chavez
Gilles Aubry (Switzerland)
Prozack Maurice (France)
Blessed Thistle
Radio Shock

I’ll be playing first and a short set, and probably something a little different, tailored to (or against?) the pure noise crowd?

Wed. Oct.15 at Death by Audio
49 S.2nd St. ∅ 8PM ∅ some $
FB event: https://www.facebook.com/events/303295766521082/

My last show at this venue EVER because Death by Audio is closing at the end of November! :'(
End of an era as they say. You should attend some shows there before it disappears, probably this one, with:

Buck Gooter
Zomes
Radio Shock
Florida
Jeremy Smoking

MIDWEST TOUR

It’s happening. It’s real. Now wave now. Some details still to come, and a few days are in the scrambling-for-last-minute-gig stage, so if you can help out, please get in touch! (mp-at-radioshock-dot-org) But this is the basic outline:

FRI. OCT.17 – Cheapfest at Strange Matter in Richmond VA
SAT. OCT.18 – TBA or travel day
SUN. OCT.19 – Empty Bottle in Chicago IL
MON. OCT.20 – Minneapolis MN
TUES.OCT.21 – Madison WI

(just saw this really nice review of that in fact)

There’s still a completed EP coming out late Spring-ish, still no official details, and still a tour through the Midwest in the summer.

“Trapper Keeper” music video premiere!

Filed under: news — admin @ 9:48 AM February 19, 2014

Now it can be told. This is a pretty exciting thing for me, being Radio Shock’s first music video and the beginning of a new era where I try to record the “right way” starting with this track, which will be a classic to those who have seen lots of live shows, but a brand new hit to others and deserving of a proper release.

The Critical Masses website has been cool enough to do the “premiere” thing for me so please
CHECK IT OUT THERE


http://criticalmassesmedia.com/2014/02/on-shuffle-video-premiere-radio-shock-trapper-keeper/

But watch the video before reading what they wrote! because it contains spoilers… OR DOES IT? This video was filmed at local Maria Hernandez Park in Bushwick, Brooklyn, and features many of the local skaters and kids who spontaneously joined in the video shoot. It also guest stars the band Neg-Fi in a special role. It was so much fun and I’m really happy with the results so please share it, Like it, and spread it far and wide!

This track is also on a 7″ to be released on Decoherence Records next week! It has a super-cool b-side song which also turned out great, details on that shortly.

Radio Shock, going legit in 2014.

THANKS EVERYONE!
