Aries Release Party @ The Pilot Light, Knoxville, TN – 4.6.2013

The flier above pretty much explains it all, but let’s get redundant…

Aries, the new album from Arrison Kirby, will be released everywhere digitally and in limited physical form on April 2nd.

Four days later, on April 6th, we will be celebrating that release with a party at the Pilot Light in Knoxville’s Old City.

At this event, Obadiah will be reforming to perform the entire Aries album from start to finish.  Dustin Milotte (Deep Green, Hypenkrunk) will be joining on guitar.  Jakob Esaw (who will be also celebrating a birthday that night), will also be contributing to the set’s closer.

Before all this, we will be treated to a set from Sidecar Symposium.

And we will end the night with a dance party, courtesy of Nathan Moses with an all vinyl, soul and psychedelia DJ set.

Your master of ceremonies for the evening will be comic Jeff Blank.

You can check out “Scrappy,” the first single from Aries, here:

Only come if you like music and good times!

Hypenkrunk, I Octopus, Sidecar Symposium & James Drown @ The Longbranch Saloon, Knoxville, TN – 10.18.2012

This will be the first public, Knoxville performance for Hypenkrunk, I Octopus and Sidecar Symposium, with an introduction to the night from James Drown.

After a word from Mr. Drown, Sidecar Symposium will take the stage for the debut of their Vaudevillian aural workings.  Sidecar features members of Never Sorry, Boozehound Gandydance, and Kamuy, among others.

After they get us moving, we will next be treated to I, Octopus, an experimental jazz/prog import, coming to our town by way of New Orleans.  This will be their first time playing in Knoxville.

The evening will top off with the trap and bounce stylings of Hypenkrunk.  Their live electronic blend, with the verbal stylings of MC Realtree, will keep you dancing until last call.

Truly, there will be something for everyone.


Persons by the red cloud reissued!

David Davis seems to be doing pretty well these days.  He lives in Los Angeles and works at EastWest Studios.  He worked hard to get where he is, deserves it fully, and will be forever well wished by his friends at El Deth.

The man is a recording machine (wait…isn’t that just, like, a tape deck or something?), having tracked a slew of other people’s material, as well as his own.  To explore his humble beginnings, however, one must indulge in his 2006 full length disc, Persons.  It was recorded under the moniker, the red cloud, and produced by MiAH (Beware: The Gentlemen, Cutthroat Shamrock)  at Knoxville’s Sound Lair.

And now you can sink your ears into it once again.

You read right already.  Persons by the red cloud has now been digitally reissued everywhere!

There have been several people hitting me up about that album in the past several months.  So to you people, I’m sorry it took so long.  But now you can get it, digitally, pretty much everywhere.

If you use iTunes, get it here.

Pilot Light Rehearsal for 3.23.2012 – Never Sorry [Arrison Kirby, R.J. Hill, Dane Hill & Jay Allen]

Right click and “Save As” to download the tracks:

“New Don”
“Starve it Out and Never Go Hungry”
“Silver and Gold”
“The Fingerwag”
“Train to Nagano”
“Rachel and Dee Dee”
“Randy Scouse Git” (the Monkees)

It’s been a minute, but this is the Never Sorry rehearsal for our show that occurred at the Pilot Light in Knoxville, TN on March 23rd, 2012.  It’s actually a selection of takes from three different sets that occurred between two sessions on March 21st and 22nd.  Most of these songs had never been played live or even put up on the website from former sessions.

A lot of punk and rock opera type influences seem to seep through here.  We were very fortunate to have Jay Allen joining us on drums for this one.  It’s also very likely this session may get remixed, remastered and formally released as a proper album at some point in the future of the El Deth discography.

A good handful of this material is but a small portion of the cathartic discharge of a highly sadistic, disturbing, romantic relationship that dominated my 2011.  A lot of the sour blood spillage from that relationship ended up splattering on to some of my deeper friendships.  That aspect is where “Silver and Gold” comes from.  “Rachel and Dee Dee” is also about two friends of mine taking issue with some aspect of our friendship, but it was written back in 2010.

“Train to Nagano” reaches back to my solo album, Part 3.  Though strangely, Dane began playing this progression at one rehearsal, without ever having heard the previously published version.  On the playback, I realized it was the exact same song.  So here it is with the full band treatment.

The closing track, “Randy Scouse Git” is a cover of a Monkees song.  We had this in the works when Davey Jones died, making it particularly, but sadly, suitable for the set.  As far as songs from that era go, this one is pretty forward thinking.

“House of Satan”
“Dayman” (Charlie Day)

So this is our rehearsal session from our show on October 20th, at the Pilot Light in Knoxville, Tennsee, with Kishi Bashi.  This was recorded the evening before the show.  Obviously, we took a more minimal approach this time, slimming down to a trio for this recording.  As usual, that’s not quite how it went at the show, with the last minute addition of Megan Driscoll.  Kishi Bashi also joined us for the finale cover of “Dayman,” as made popular by the FX program, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, as well as an impromptu improvisational session at the end of the end.

On the recording, as during the live performance, “Dayman” bares a triumphant intro segment.  During the live set, we performed with a casket laid out in front of the stage.  At this point, the casket was opened, releasing helium filled balloons and light beams.  A happy end to an otherwise rather dark set.
