Coping With Death by Arrison Kirby (Book Review #150)

Coping with Death and Destruction by Arrison Kirby available now!

Hey everyone. El Deth is in flux as always. We’re hoping to overhaul the website soon, with easier access to our history of sessions. It won’t be anytime really soon but we are on our way.

In the meantime, Arrison Kirby has taken a break from music to write a book!

Here is the blurb:

The book is a collection of twelve, high concept, multi-part short stories reflecting on and inspired by the death and transformation of the year 2016. It serves as an elegy for that period of time, submerging into dark themes of loss, extracting what irreverence and hopefulness it can, and reflecting it through a prism of an eternal universe. Sorted astrologically, the stories sometimes span generations, depicting conflict based around such themes as apocalypse, dreams, aging, dying, ghosts, the afterlife, animals, nature, global politics and pop culture. Location also varies, taking the reader through several American states to North Korea, Africa, the Philippines and beyond – often peppered with heavy doses of Southern Gothic sensibility.

In the book, you can read about religion based on pop science fiction and fantasy, a 1960’s lounge singer marginalized by the Beatles, or a mixture of drugs that allows the user to summon the dead. Several of the tales blend fact into the fiction, nodding to the cultural giants whose deaths loomed over the year 2016: David Bowie, Leonard Cohen, Prince, Carrie Fisher and others. These are detailed and developed stories, intended to instill within the reader a sense of timelessness and a comfort in the notion of infinity.

Supajam previews The Micro Jackson EP

The mighty London music press outfit, Supajam, provided an early look at forthcoming, The Micro Jackson EP, by Arrison Kirby, with Dustin Milotte and Brite Flowers.  Specifically, they shared the first single, “Action.”

There is this question of Paul McCartney playing Americana.  That is far too humbling of a comparison for comment.  Thanks, Supajam!

The Micro Jackson EP by Arrison Kirby with Dustin Milotte and Brite Flowers to be released 10.15.2013

The Micro Jackson EP is the fifth release from Knoxville producer, Arrison Kirby. It features Dustin Milotte (Star Mountain, Hypenkrunk) on guitar and the mysterious Brite Flowers on bass.

With the exception of a Freddie Mercury cover (“Living on my Own”), this collection of songs was written by Kirby over a series of years. Milotte and Flowers were commissioned specifically for a one-time performance at Checkpoint Charlie’s in New Orleans. These versions, with each of their own compositional additions, were arranged, rehearsed and recorded over a series of sessions in 2012

Milotte’s guitar gives this release more of a southern feel than Kirby’s previous recordings, while maintaining the avant-garde foundation that Kirby typically works from. The sound captured here is at times reminiscent of Wilco, mated with Ben Folds, David Byrne, and a touch of Devo playing the Grateful Dead.

This is the nineteenth release from Knoxville’s El Deth recording label. It will be digitally available through all major online distributors on October 15th, 2013.

Here’s the first single….

“Predawn” – Arrison Kirby

Originally, “Michael in the War” was supposed to be the first song from <em>Aries</em> to have a video made for it.  Lots of big ideas floated around, but the human condition ultimately hindered production.

So instead I edited down a bunch of old, dark footage filmed in San Francisco, California and Great Sand Dunes National Monument in Colorado – circa 2000.  The grey colors of the Colorado scenes are natural. There was no manipulation with a computer, in these regards.

Vents Magazine reviews Aries

Vents Magazine published a rather lengthy and complimentary review of the new album from Arrison Kirby, Aries.  Once again, another media outlet suggests that Arrison’s music  goes hand in hand with hallucinogenic drugs.  Who could – or would want to – argue with that?

Aries reviewed by Spanish metal magazine, NOIZZ


This is some interesting feedback.  NOIZZ is “dedicated to dark sounds,” so it’s good to know that Aries was worthy of their review.
