new years eve

Hi 2011.
If you were thinking that a good way to start off the new year would be by downloading a bunch of scuzzy house show noise then you might also be thinking that you're lucky to have found yourself here.

Recorded from the bookshelf of the Hearn Organ room on the last day of 2010:

Alps - coming from underneath an undulating bass ocean.

the Mermaids - the idiots that were also morons.

[the] alzheimer blanks - returning from the forest.

Starting to blog again / vox cyclops show

Thought I might start doing the blog again. I suppose it's boring reading the details on why a blog isn't getting updated, or in this case didn't get updated for.... well looking back it looks like the last one I personally did was in May 2009. God knows I've skimmed past these kinds of explanations when blog reading, so I'll sum it up in a few words... I haven't really felt like it...
Also If I can muster up the will I will post some of the stuff I have recorded over the last year or so, probably not in nice neat order though... unfortunately I didn't bother to label the recordings and upon re listening to some of them I have found myself unable to identify them.

The following links will lead to live recordings from a show held out the back of vox cyclops in Newcastle,

CISTERN CORRUPT - "It was obvious to me even then that the lama who was now my guide was indeed a good man. The heat was terrible. swaths of mouldy old clothes , swarms of bewildered moths, and hot butter."

NONE MUSIC - "But there were catches: before I had to obey the frightening number of 32 rules of priestly conduct. As a lama, to my horror and dismay , I found the total was 253."

PREHISTORIC FUCKIN' MORON(S) - "The flowing robes wrapped around my stilted legs, moths flapped around as well, for the garments had been stored, and I sneezed and sneezed and sneezed, and added to my further discomfort by spilling hot butter from the lamps over my shaven and suffering pate."

LAKES - "Not long after this I think It may of been 5 or 6 months, there was a sudden terrific gale of wind, with flying clouds of dust and grit. I was on the roof of a storehouse being instructed in how to lay sheet gold to make the roof waterproof."

These recordings are slightly wind damaged in areas, but otherwise sound great, apologies for missing the start of none music. Click the links to download mp3 recordings.

Crab Smasher - Forever!

There hasn't been much activity here at Sky Hut so it's pretty exciting to be able to offer you a new Crab Smasher album/download to make up for it.

FOREVER! Consists of seven tracks culled from live sets recorded at the Winter Tragic festival in The Blue Mountains, and an intimate gig in the concrete prison exercise yard of the Lock Up in Newcastle. For these shows, the lineup was slimmed down to the lite-trio of Nicholas French, Grant Hunter, and Marnie Vaughn, as the other dudes were either too drunk or too busy playing Halo on xbox 360.
Like last year's smash hit The Picky Eater, this album should hopefully tide you over while you continue to wait for the next Crab Smasher studio album, which will be out one day, but probably not anytime soon.
Featuring a stunning cover photograph by Nicholas Pitt, The download contains all seven tracks as well as a handy PDF so you can print out a cover and make your own CD if you like, or even make hundreds of them for every person you've ever met in your entire life. As with all sky hut releases, please feel free to pass this around, repost it on your own blog, whatever. Also we'd love to know if you think it's not very good.

1. Big Beautiful Women
2. Death train
3. Fighting For Her Attention
4. Mating In Captivity
5. Wool Flies
6. Japanese Bug Fights
7. False Alarm
