Why you will be a better person when you purchase the SMUD Vs Sludge Oven cassette!

The SMUD Vs Sludge Oven cassette was spawned when Eric Strauss and I were walking to get coffee during this years NorCal Noisefest. We saw a short phrase written on diamond plate steel with an arc welder. SMUD was the term that caught our eye. We concluded that it was a great name. Eric recorded the SMUD side and I recorded the Sludge Oven side. A cassette seemed to be the proper form for such an endeavor, only four are available on EBay from a run of ten copies. If you want one, you can get it here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/SMUD-Vs-Sludge-Oven-noise-power-electronics-2015-C-30-Limited-Edition-Mint-/321634020903?
Don't delay, buy today!
  

Both SMUD and Sludge Oven are individually the preeminent arbiters of the highest order of sonic experimentation and noise music. On this rare occasion they have come together to produce a cassette that is at once cleansing, therapeutic and brutal. Although initially SMUD Vs Sludge Oven may appear to the uninitiated to have much in common with the tools of sonic warfare used to extract unreliable information from non-state actors and enemy combatants. This cassette offers you and your family so much more.

First let me describe what you get!

The SMUD Vs Sludge Oven cassette is a limited run of ten. That’s right! There are only ten of these cassettes made and of that ten, only four are being offered on for sale on Ebay.

With the cassette you will receive two stickers and a button. A person can never have enough stickers and a button will offer new ways to accessorize whatever outfit you choose.

With the  stickers and a button you will receive a small plastic action figure locked in perpetual battle.



But that’s not all! In the decorative sealed plastic wrapper you will receive a copy of this ad to describe to your descendants the importance of the SMUD Vs Sludge Oven cassette and with create a lasting family heirloom to be handed from generation to generation in perpetuity. At family gatherings during the holidays, imagine the warmth of gathering by the antique boom box to experience the SMUD Vs Sludge Oven cassette together! These are priceless memories that can only be had with your purchase of the SMUD Vs Sludge Oven Cassette.

But wait! There’s more!

The therapeutic aspect of the SMUD Vs Sludge Oven cassette cannot be over stated. The audio program on the SMUD Vs Sludge Oven cassette is packed with uplifting subliminal messages that in some cases have cured constipation, flakey skin and over sensitive hearing. However, the subliminal messages are many and varied so there is no telling what it will cure for you!

Act now! There are only four SMUD Vs Sludge Oven cassettes available! Do not hesitate and miss this once in a lifetime opportunity! 

All Sales Final. 

No returns.

Disco Noise! This Saturday!


Dancing to noise, is the dance of the future!


Make your way to the Palms for an epic evening of dance and noise under the stars! Free camping on site for those who want to sleep where they fall.

It is too hot to think in August in Wonder Valley. After a day hunkering by the swamp cooler, it is time to go to the Palms Restaurant and Dance! Disco Noise will bring the best of the desert noise artists to the stage at The Palms. The Alien Agenda is sweeping in from Yucca Valley. Hernia from Landers, last seen at the Bedlam art show at Radio Free Joshua Tree will take it to the stage at Disco Noise. Phog masheeen is premering a new set of bone crushing and ear searing audio. It is hard to enjoy the days of August in the desert, the nights however.... are sublime.
