New release “ADAPTER” + upcoming shows

Filed under: downloads,news,shows — admin @ 7:06 PM November 7, 2013

LOTS OF COOL STUFF TO SHARE! upcoming NYC shows, new music, Northwest shows, etc

************

NEW RELEASE!!!:

This is a weird one, an almost 60 minute mixtape of misc recordings that didn’t have another home. Lots of strange, silly stuff, but I think it makes for a real fun listen. Good for listening while walking, driving. Listen, download or order here:

RADIO SHOCK “Adapter”

Several cool things in this Radio Shock news release!

**********
ALBUMS TO DOWNLOAD

Did you know that some Radio Shock albums represent seasons? It’s true. RAGE158 is the fall album and since we’re deep into the fall season, I offer unto you a free download via the Free Music Archive (Free Music Archive is basically the best music site on the internet, filled with quality curated music for free).

http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Radio_Shock/Rage158/

and because the next season is approaching, the Radio Shock holiday album (representing the winter season) “SnoWave” is now available – only at this time of year until January.

http://radioshock.bandcamp.com/album/snowave

It’s free too – just name your price as $0.00

The Spring album is in the works now.

**********
BRAND NEW COLLABORATION RECORDING

Also on the Free Music Archive is this awesome new collaboration I did with Jason Hodges of Mutwawa/Bermuda Triangles fame. Down in Richmond, VA at the Cheap Fest next-day brunch, this spontaneous and unplanned collaboration took place and sounded totally killer. One mega Lo-techno/Glitch House/No Rave jam. Grab it now!

http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Jason_Hodges__MP_Lockwood/10-23-2011/

T-SHIRTS

IMAG0543crop.jpg

I made a small batch of these new “bleach-style” T-shirts. Right now I have some men’s medium and small, but I’ll be making more, so if you want another size, email mp AT radioshock D0T org, and make a request/inquiry. They’re $10 including shipping to the U.S. – OR TRADE (email to inquire)! See & order them at

http://radioshock.bigcartel.com/

**********
and one last note, I’ll be playing in some kind of bizarre collab performance this Friday Nov.25 at Big Snow, which is a newish venue in Brooklyn, on Varet between Humboldt and Graham. Should be totally weird & totally fun.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone,
M*P* Lockwood

Radio Shock in Fairfax VA and Cock Robot music & movie!

Filed under: downloads,news,shows — Tags: , , , , — admin @ 12:13 AM June 9, 2011

RADIO SHOCK plays this Fri. June 10 in Fairfax, VA
download rare COCK ROBOT 7″ tracks and watch the WHEN ROBOTS ATTACK movie

******

I was invited to play a show this Friday June 10th at Candle Haus
4039 Hallman St, Fairfax VA

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Candle-Haus/106223792792291

Start time probably about 9, also playing is Scrap Heap, and I’m not certain who else! I do not know when RADIO SHOCK goes on. Many mysteries, come discover the answers with me…

******

In related news, another release from the pre-Radio Shock project COCK ROBOT has been made available. This band was formed by myself (MP Lockwood), current professor of metaphortean studies Carl Diehl, and the enigmatic Toaster while in Syracuse, NY, and became early pioneers of No-Core style.

These 2 tracks are from a split 7″ with the band Katzenmallets (ex-Xerobot) and was Cock Robot’s last official release. Listen here and download for free by entering ZERO when asked to name your price. Or you can pay money if you wish.

http://cockrobot.bandcamp.com/album/split-7

Also unearthed: the long lost Cock Robot PR vehicle disguised as shockumentary:
WHEN ROBOTS ATTACK

http://vimeo.com/23247510

This 47 minute film includes interviews with Cock Robot, as well as plenty of found and manipulated footage, music from several affiliated acts, and dramatic re-enactments of robotic holocaust starring members of Cock Robot as well as at least two other notorious underground music personalities. A chilling look into the state of Syracuse avant garde circa 2000.

You can listen live at www.whfr.org by clicking on the “ON AIR” link or seek out the archive of the show shortly after it airs. I will be playing some songs, maybe improvising some stuff, maybe talking.

**********

In May I will be playing some shows with indigenous noise-ravers Mutwawa.

NOW AVAILABLE

New RADIO SHOCK ep “duets” is a small collection of improvised tracks and live attempts that went awry and turned out sounding very different from the initial intention. It’s a limited edition of 50 physical copies in hand-decorated and assembled packaging. You can listen or order a copy here:

http://radioshock.bandcamp.com/album/duets

I have also made the previous releases at the same site available on a pay-what-you-choose basis. Please feel free to download them and pay nothing. Just enter $0.

MORE SOUNDZ

I am sharing practice space jams and in-progress tracks on the Soundcloud website.

**********
THE FUTURE

My plan for the rest of 2011 is to put out 2 more releases. An album of new songs called “Romanse is the Death of Intellect” and a kind of greatest hits album with guest stars where many of the older favorite Radio Shock songs will finally get recorded properly and officially released. Probably some new ones too. For the very first time ever I am going to actively investigate the possibility of someone else putting out these releases, so please contact me with any suggestions or offers!
