Much to our delight, phog masheeen has a track on the Wire Tapper! The Wire Tapper is a CD that is included with The Wire Magazine!

This is huge for us and we would encourage you to check it out further here:

Coming up next Friday the 21st of October we will be heading out to Jawbone Canyon in the Mojave desert for the Hop-Frog Collective's festival of experimentation in the dirt! This year titled Dust Streams, Fire Skies and Tarantula Thighs.

Here is the link to the Urch Records Facebook page:

This is the lovely stage setting on Sunday Morning after the festivities last year.

Max Steiners gig recording up!

I know, it was a Monday night. You couldn't make it out to Max Steiners to see phog masheeen. But! As an ongoing service to our fans that evening lives again through the ongoing miracle that is the internet! Ryan Hunt joined the proceedings with the newest addition to the Pick-0-Phone set-up the Kick Drum. Covering the low end in a non-pitched sort of way.

Check out this short but epic set!

Here is the embedded stream player:

Soundwalk 2011 recording up for your amusment and perusal

A distilled one hour and seventeeen minute version of the phog masheeen five hour soundwalk performances is available here

Here is the hyperbole attached to the file:
A one hour seventeen minute composite of the five hour phog masheeen performance at the Soundwalk in Long Beach, CA 10-1-2011. Performers William Almas, Dr. Kaplan, Ryan Hunt, Eric Strauss and Mark Soden Jr. Highlights include, the debut of the Pick-0-phone. (a musical instruments constructed of railroad picks, bundt pans and a plow disk from a tractor) and the Duodenum (an instrument constructed from a motorcycle exhaust) receiving a dry-ice rub down. The general tone is lovely, abrasive and percussively alluring. A defining moment in West Coast Free Noise and Post-Industrial Exotica!

We here at phog masheeen understand that the likelyhood that people are able to schedule anything these days is slim. So we provide as many ways as we can devise to allow you to timeshift our performances to fit your schedule.

Soundwalk 2011 Recap!

Thank you Igor Amokian for filming the phog masheeen snippet for Youtube. It was a perfect evening, warm and dry. Big thanks to Ryan Hunt who joined us as Pick-0-phone operator and Eric Strauss who sat-in with Dr. Kaplan on percussion!

Next we are on to Jawbone Canyon in the Mojave desert on Oct. 21st and 22nd. Phog masheeen will be performing on Friday the 21st. This event is a free and fun campout.

Jawbone Canyon is as "Mixed Use" as it gets. Guns, Dirt Bikes and Noise Concerts, it all happens there. It is a post-apocalyptic weekend with gas enough for everyone. Worth checking out if you can hang with sleeping on the ground.
