Just letting you know that AVRCRC don' gon' be BLOWIN' UP in November!

Just got the tracks for An Evening With Rob and Rosa at the Super Piano Bounceyball! This is one long piece for modified organ! Imagine a character from a Hayao Miyazaki film: A lumbering, wooden, sentient, robot made from Wurlitzer organ parts. Creaking slowly, dropping gumball machine rubber balls, wheezing and galumping towards you. This will be on a C30 and no doubt look and sound fantastic! Here's an excerpt:

AND! Working on the ALKOR/NEBRASKA USA artwork right now, too! Just got word from dudes that they'll be having a release show for this tape, so if you're in Baltimore--you've been warned!

And if that we're enough, our own NEW WAVE DYKE will finally be finishing the much anticipated "SENSITIVE MALE ALBUM"! An all covers affair featuring a few FM lite rock favorites faithfully redone on Casio, Drums, Guitar and Bass! Sung with a boyish earnestness that only NWD could muster. No irony allowed! Perfect for your next make-out party! WATCH THIS SPACE!

AVRCRC0029 The Dirty Soxx "Formerly Known As The Ham-Fisted Barber" DIGITAL RELEASE!!!!

Yup, you don't have enough spazz-mo improv freak outs in your life. Breaks down like this:

Thrown together by sheer fate in an Otsego, Michigan rumpus room, brother (Scott, Drums-18 at the time) and sister (Kelsey-Vocals, 10 years old at the time!) are aided by AVRCRC Head honcho Ian D. Piirtola for a frenzied pixie stix-snorting freakout, blaring loud'n proud!

The concept was simple: whatever words popped into Kelsey's head, a song was written around it on the spot! Bass was later overdubbed (all in one take to preserve improvitablity!) The result is a delightful squawk and splang bash-fest with a healthy dollop of hooks!

HEAR Brother and sister argue MID-SONG!

HEAR Kelsey expertly recite a report on Babe Ruth over a half remembered stab at Survivor's "Eye Of the Tiger"!

HEAR Pure 10 year old rage at the world: Skittles suck!, Arthur sucks! YOU SUCK.

HEAR frenzied drumming dash around cheap guitar mangle 'em, strangle 'ems! Bass appropriately rumbles and grumbles beneath vocals not always pointed at the mic, due to constant live-action tantrums not heard since Barney quit!


released 20 September 2012 Kelsey Stephenson-Vocals, Lyrics Scott Stephenson-Drums, Vocals Ian Piirtola-Guitar, Bass Overdubs, Occasional Squawk

Recorded in fall of 2002 by I. Piirtola on a Tascam 414 mk II

Sneak peek at AVRCRC0028-Nebraska, USA/Alkor split C30!

I don't even know what the fuck is going on here. Primitive dance tracks rendered with sub-Mo Tucker caveman poundage, synth grunt and processed-beyond-belief Prince-worship vocals; Radio samples, chants, beeps and beats looped and pedal-jacker processed on the fly to tape! In between the humping there are sweaty back porch finger picking interludes and a few beard and ponytail synthesizer odysseys. Sounds like someone's blasting Luke Skywalker's "Bass Waves Compilation" through 12 blown speakers with optional chipmunk chorus. A bonafied summer jam if'n I ever did hear one! Cover star: Christine Lindberg (please don't sue me, thanks!) $5PPD
Check it out!

AVRCRC0023 ROBERTS "Jeriquoi yah wangettik mnuutah" C60 OUT NOW!

I used to have dreams in which my consciousness would leave my body and shoot up to the ceiling. In a split second I would be nose-to-tile-hearing every sound imaginable. An organic orchestra of everyday sounds woven together: shimmering rumbles, blasts of wind, skateboard wheel and car tire thrummm, jackhammers, conversation and then, when you least expect it: a wash of mutated tones comes in. That's pretty much what this tape sounds like. AVRCRC is extra-tasty-crispy proud to be the vessel for the first release by Rob Peterson and Robert Greenwood-or ROBERTS-if you please. $5.00 PPD

New Wave Dyke on Haltapes!

Lots in the works, but in the meantime...New Wave Dyke contributed a moody thumper called "Nite Flight II" to Hal McGee's "Connection International Compilation" tape comp! Can't hear that shizz anywhere else! It should be on volume 3 or 4! Look for it on HalTapes this month!

Trippin' Balls gets the digital treatment!

Another vault exclusive! (it's a big vault.) I found a copy of the TRIPPIN' BALLS cassette from 2009-poster, lyric sheet and hand painted self help cassette still intact! AVRCRC thinks the world is now ready for the psychedelic hardcore finger-bangin' that is TRIPPIN' BALLS! Heck, if you wanna buy the digital album, it comes with a PDF of the ACTUAL LYRIC SHEET, POSTER AND...well, a picture of the tape. BUT STILL! Either way, have a listen!

More from the vaults! Pre-FACTORIES jams this time.  Ian was informed of a imaginary soundtrack to an imaginary movie (Titled "The Nasty Heads") Matt and his cousin made when they were 11. The duo decided to re-create that soundtrack with nothing but a few Casio keyboards, bass, guitars, an ancient drum machine and tiny amps! After a few weekends they surfaced with an off the cuff, low budget Rock Opera of revved up Casio punk!  A preview of distorto-New Wave to come a few years later via FACTORIES? Probably.

Anyway, here's the "libretto":
"A team of scientists are persecuted for creating an epidemic of uncontrollable hair growth and good ol' fashioned "Space madness". While the world falls into hairy peril, a huckster tries to sell the remaining humans a Positron Accelerator, a benefit rock concert loses it's focus, conspiracy abounds and someone gets something stuck in their eye. In the end the scientists stumble upon a cure for the hairy uprising in the form of urine. With enemies vanquished, new wave music triumphantly blares into the sky as the credits roll... "

Have a listen!

Four years in the making and this is what you get: The sound of Three Six Mafia farting on your pillows and calling it a Bill Wither's remix. Shitter's full.
