Label description:
Palm Trees brings you future of noise. "Skull Full Of Holes"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this lovely c24 comes housed in a standard tape case with a beautiful full color j card with art by gggary stevens. a cover insert printed on transparency paper. also a regular insert partly hand painted by ggggary hand numbered. annnnnnnnd hand painted tapes. a really stunning looking release all together. the music WILL make you want to cover yourself in the blood/semen mixture of your victims only to dance naked in the moonlight while trying to fuck yourself with an unlubed femur. yeah.... it's that good. total raw and mangled tape manipulations and junk electronics collide with heavily treated guitar and contact mics. so simple yet so tasty. you need it." - Teenage Whore Tapes

Label Description:
"This beautiful piece of analog delight comes in a limited edition of 50 copies with hand painted intestine blob maze labels by world renowned artist GGGary Stevens and full color cover art also constructed by GGG. The A side is a ten minute long journey inside the saxaphone of multi instrumentalist Zack Kouns from Ohio. At times relaxing, other times driving you to the brink of insanity(in a good way). THIS WILL DIG DEEP INTO YOUR BRAIN AND SET IT AFIRE. Side B contains the first recorded material of the deeply psychadelic noise fuck that is Virginia's HEAD MOLT. Beware.... if the smell of burnt synapses appeals to you then this is right up your alley, everyone else... your dead anyway." -Teenage Whore Tapes

HEAD MOLT / garydactyl

Sept 14th 2006, we recorded a 4-track tape, liked the results and decided to form a new group from that sessions participants..thus HEAD MOLT is born. Joshua Hickey (vocals, feedback, percussion) Robert Guynn (guitar, vocals, contact mics) Leah Peah (percussion, violin) Gary Stevens (contact mics, feedback manipulation, vocals, circuit bends, cassette decks). Split tape with Zack Kouns available soon from Teenage Whore Tapes. We hope to record more and are now planning to play some shows. and of course we have a myspace: http://myspace.com/headmolt

I'm releasing some of my not so harsh or challenging(?)solo works under the guise of GARYDACTYL. I have a few tracks posted and are working on mixing down some more shit. Have a listenin' http://myspace.com/grrrrry

bed death

I recently found another band named BED! some pop rock group from france, they were BED first...I must concied. I'm just going to continue to release noise under the A.S.D. alias as i have since 1997. So...I changed my BED myspace into a second A.S.D. myspace. Sorry for any confusion. it all sounds the same anyway!

peace, love and noise
