March To The Sea tour - a report

As we are accomplishing the first third of our March To The Sea tour, and are having our first day off in Phoenix, we already have a whole lot of tour stories to tell--- and this one tour is particularly rich in stories.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After our stint in the South, here we are arriving in Austin. Once our gear loaded up and everything, we were having a little hangout with some of our local friends, an imposing guy with a giant beard approached me and requested the permission to do a poem about our band. I complied, and the next thing I know, he his amongst us on the stage reading his piece right before we go on. It really set up the mood of the evening, and the show went pretty amazingly, with the crowd being very responsive to our new material.

The poet in question is Thax Douglas and is a fixture of the Austin art scene--- even right before we met him, our friend Brian Maclaskey pointed him to us as 'The Poet'. Thax even has a documentary on him online. Here is the poem he wrote:


Sinewy giraffe
throwing you
off guard with its
violates an entire
city out of
nothing while you
were dreaming
out snails of
glamour creeping
up and down
that luxuriously
long esophagus -
you just
have enough time
to live in that
city for one
lifetime before
you make up and
the rope tricle
city collapses
into something for
you to walk on

12:00 - 12:05 am

Thax told me after the show that we made him think of Xenakis's work, which is quite a compliment.

AIDS Wolf garage sale

Sunday July 11
1pm untill 6pm
The One Hundred Sided Die
5334 avenue De Gaspé, suite1202
Montreal, QC

We all live far from our studio and don't have the time to go back and forth to sell this stuff. If you wanna call dibs then show up on time w/ cash. Thanks for understanding.

Yes this is the time of the year when you look at your place and want to clear up to allow yourself more breathing space; or I guess this is the response to the infinite quest for emptiness. We looked around the practice space and decided to sever with items that had been waiting for way too long to be played on. We really want to get rid of those items, and they are priced to sell. CASH AND CARRY or reasonable trades. Here is the list.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Cherry Red Epiphone SG 125$
Mid 90's Korean Epiphone SG. Replaced one of the tuning pegs/machine heads. Era specific Corpusse and Neoist stickers behind the saddle. Killer axe. Was my kubelka guitar throughout the glory years.  The neck's a bit to big for my new medieval jazz posture but is likely perfect for you. Brian from Mouthus uses the exact same guit. Was recently Belloughed so you know its all slick, tuned and feeling good.

Ibanez PZ47 25$
So you got a new SG knockoff and have been asked to join Chrome? Hold it there player, those dudes aren't letting you anywhere near the jam room w/out some phase to run your shit through. This little guy IS the Chrome pedal. Ibanez might has well just called it The Chrome. Also, used it on a draino recording this last weekend so the nutiness is still fresh within it. Willing to trade for an on/off pedal or some similar thing. Reason for selling: I quite Chrome.

MPC2000: 325$
The most aggressive sampler ever made. Entire hip hop classics were made using only this machine. You've seen pictures of Pete Rock n CL Smooth in the studio and all they have is this guy and some speakers. This is also famously the drums in the live Wolf Eyes rig. Heaviest sounding sampler ever kills me to sell it. The monitor is a bit faded but still fine. Remember this is a computer. Comes with the Zip Drive, Operating System disc, Solena sample set (Bowie's string synth). Plus its got the idividual outs for each sample track...BOOM!

Modified and presently not working Realistic Disco Mixer 5$
If you are into some industrial espionage this the prototype of the Kozzmophone. The channels are hard wired to a cross patch/feedback set up and there's a whole bunch of attenuation controls i built into the thing in order to reign the crazyness in. Long loved part of my Thames rig. Won't turn on but the power supply is likely blown. Never put batteries into it. Cool project for someone.  Sounds great through a phase.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Trashed MXR Bluebox.5$
Made no sense asa a guitar pedal makes less sense now after I had a go at it. But seriously put  a 9v in it and jack it into a space echo while running your fingers across the solder points on the back of the circuit board and you ARE the electronics dude in Hawkwind.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

2 Boss pedals. Both shaky. Both work. 6 each 10 for both...

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Ampeg B-25b

Yes. The vintage 1969 piece from the original Ampeg factory in New Jersey. Basically the successor of the Portaflex amp. 60 watts of terror. The speaker cabinet is from a more recent make, but is all original Ampeg stuff. No mods. The two 15 inch speakers are original and in perfect condition. Amazing guitar amp. Great preamp too look at the output jack in the back. Also jack for extra speaker. I plugged it on a SVT cab before and it sounds like 10 times itself. Brigeable channels too. How does it sound? Well check out the bass groove in the beginning of 'Some Sexual Drawings' on The Lovvers LP. There was not even a distortion there. You can totally get that 'JSBX' sound with this guy. A previous owner spraypainted the grill cloth silver. Works just fine, might need a tube replacement and a little clean up/checkup since it almost did not move in 8 years.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Traynor Group One VC

Guitar amp, with this 'parametric eq' which is basically an imbedded fuzz kinda thing. Very good preamp. Great tremolo and reverb unit. 50watts at 4 ohms. Not even touched since I got it. From the late '70s or early '80s, very little got made of those. One or two of the pots may skratch here and there, totally fixable.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Never played this guy since Chris quit AW. Makes you sound like an Aussie. When you play it you grow a front pocket. Hand painted or something.

Hondo 'Custom Special 6000' bass

Gibson explorer knockoff, but way thicker and metal looking. It's 'Custom Special' too. It has 6000 of something as well. God, it's A HONDO BASS!!! Recently ovehauled and cleaned up by yours truly.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Peavey Strat knockoff

Exactly that. Re-stringed funny.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Musima Classical Accoustic 3/4 Guitar

Some german brand of guitar. This is the first instrument I ever had besides a Yamaha recorder! Right handed or left handed, it's your choice. Obtained when there was a music store downtown St-Jean-sur-Richelieu. Buy this and own a piece of history.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Epiphone accoustic-electric (broken headstock)

Hours of fun for a novice luthier. Broken in some drunken stupor at the 100-Sided Die. Otherwise a decent guitar.
$5, maybe free if you are nice.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Electro-Voice Mixer

It works. That's it. Pots and knobs may/will skratch here and there, probably just needs a good clean up, decent board for a jam space.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Random shells

Two 22 inchers or something and a 15 inch tom.
Bass drums: $5 each
Tom: $15

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Snare shell

The mechanics work, I just didn't bother replacing the skins. Either a LP percussions or a Westbury, I can't tell the difference, i know you won't either. Ok shape. Maybe you can get the two 14 skins with it.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Random skins

Two 14", a 12", a 20" bass drum, a 18" bass drum.
Used: free. New: $2. Free rubber muffler for the 20".

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Random broken cymbals

You think I hit hard? Well this is the proof. Twenty or so random sizes of broken cymbals. Mostly hi-hats and rides, also some crashes too.
$1 each, leave with the whole shebang for $5.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Small baby kit floor tom

Cute. Missing one log screw, i know you can find that at a music store. Broken butt skin, the other one works.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Random drum hardware

$2 a piece and less.

We played that show too. It was the most awesome setting. The people living in the compound were super nice and allowed us to stay there the whole SXSW 2009.

Split 7' w/ Satanized , out now on Badmater

This came out a few weeks ago and is going pretty fast.
Mailorder from Badmaster if you wanna grip one or get one from us at our upcoming Toronto/Ottawa/Montreal gigs. We don't have many copies though so act quick if you want one.

Split 7" with our palz Satanized , on Badmaster. Shouts out to Evan for the best sandwich hookup in Philly.

Yannick and I did the art did the art and screenprinted 'em inside 'n out. 4 colours out , 1 in. The vinyl is the colour of rotting meat.

Front Cover

^Back Cover.

^Insides. (silver ink.)

You can buy it here for 4.50$.

Here's what Badmater says about it w/ collector stats :

BM0021 - Aids Wolf / Satanized Split 7" -- Out Now

Limited to 500 marbled pink 7"es. Two un-released AIDS Wolf tracks & one long Satanized cut, housed in a 5 color silk screened jacket, inside and out, by Seripop.

Wholesalers and distros email badmasterrecords(at)gmail(dot)com for pricing.

Side A. AW- 1. Tango Fatal 2. In And Under The Snow | Side B. STNZD- Hope Is Lack of Information

AIDS Wolf (Montreal) and Satanized (Philadelphia) have joined forces to create a musical document of startling ugliness. The first of two Aids Wolf songs brings to mind a modern Harry Pussy piece or what it might sound like if 3 people with shotgun wounds to the gut were thrown in a pitch black room and left to scamper around looking for an exit that does not exist. (haha, who writes this shit?) The second is classic AIDS Wolf, that could have easily landed on their Cities of Glass LP (**Chloe's note : it actually was recorded during the same session so there ya go!**). The Satanized side sounds like a 24 hour shift at a steel mill turned mental institution that only employs the criminally insane. Lots of blood everywhere on this one. Brutal sonic violence. Satanized produce a truly great recording that captures everything that makes this band so awe-inspiring in a live setting. This 7" will leave you holding your lover a little bit closer at night and questioning the morality of bringing a child into this uncaring world. There are some sounds that you can't unhear... and why would you?

Philadelphia Weekly blogged about it here
This is Book's Music blogged about it here.

This is AIDS Wolf part 2.We've been holed up in our jam space at the 100 Sided Die since Pop Montreal , figuring out our new rig and adding and substracting gear.

All our old songs are retired. We have an entire new set , and a new rig. Most of what you think you know about us is wrong.

We're now playing our first shows with our new set-up and new jams. Like when we started playing out almost 7 years ago , our first gigs where people can preview the new band will be Toronto , Ottawa and Montreal. NEW ERA OF BRUTALITY.
