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!

Radio Shock LIVE events!

(added some new emails to this list, as always if you want off, just reply & say “unsubscribe” – alternate methods for receiving updates below)


* at FITNESS, 1196 Myrtle Ave Brooklyn

* showtime 9PM, $5

Fitness is a cool DIY art gallery/basement venue which has really been going nuts hosting cool show/parties. They tend to go late, but Radio Shock looks to be playing second, so… you probably just want to get there not too long after 9. Stay late though, this is a KILLER line-up.

Also features:

VIOLET RAID (MV Carbon alter ego!)

TIMEGHOST (Providence dude, rules, intense electronics and stark light show)




Facebook event:

and a week later in Chapel Hill, NC…


* Fri MAY 17 & Sat MAY 18

* at NIGHTLIGHT, 405 1/2 West Rosemary Street, Chapel Hill, NC

Amazing line-up of basically every east coast noise/jank freak act. All my favorite bands. Tiny sampling: Mincemeat or Tenspeed, DLMG, Crank Sturgeon, UHO, Humanbeast, Embarker, Rat Bastard, Clang Quartet, Form A Log?!?! …too many more.

Starts at 6 on Friday, 5 on Saturday, and Radio Shock plays early Saturday, about 6:45PM.

free Radio Shock & related music & T-shirts you can buy

Filed under: downloads,news — Tags: , , , , , , , — admin @ 1:59 AM November 24, 2011

Several cool things in this Radio Shock news release!


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).

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.

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

The Spring album is in the works now.


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!



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

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

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.

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

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.
