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….

Hypenkrunk & White Colla Crimes @ Banks Street Bar, New Orleans, LA – 12.14.2012

El Deth returns to New Orleans to join hometown heroes, White Colla Crimes, for a down and dirty evening of music at the Banks Street Bar.  The show will begin around 10 or so, and I’m pretty sure it’s free.

This round will include an expanded version of Hypenkrunk, including multi-instrumentalist, Dustin Milotte of Deep Green, as well as some possible guest vocalists.  It’s going to be a good time so get there.

This was our next to last rehearsal for our performance on July 7th at Checkpoint Charlie’s in New Orleans, LA.  This entire act was set up specifically for this show.  First it was booked (under the name “El Deth Music”) with help from, Jak Locke.  Then I set out a call for people who wanted to come along and contribute.  Dustin Milotte (Deep Green, Star Mountain) and Grant Parker (Deep Green, Big John and the Nationals) answered that call to perform.  Astrid Dees also came along for logistical and moral support…and to shop and have a good time and stuff.  Dustin and Grant and I fleshed out material and rehearsed for about a month and a half before the show.  This particular session was recorded on June 26th.  It’s highly likely that we will record this material more formally (i.e.  tracked out without all the wounds showing)  and releasing it in the near future, most likely under the name The Mighty Whites.

This is the exact set we did at Checkpoint Charlie’s, without random stage banter, of course…but we did keep “Crick.”  “Bomb” was one I used to do during acoustic sets years ago.  Dustin remembered it from those days and suggested we bring it back out.  (I changed the word “president” to “congressman” since it was initially written when George W. Bush was in office.  I’m still not sure about the Sadam Hussein reference staying in there).  We also covered a Freddie Mercury song, “Living on my Own,” that was introduced to me by Josh Lunsford when we recorded in Shiver Me Timbers together.  We closed with “Single Politician,” which was originally performed by Never Sorry.

I want to mention that, in addition to setting up the show, Jak Locke also performed with the Jak Locke Rock Show.  We saw him play music at a burlesque show at the Allways Lounge the night before, too.  It was all quality and I implore you to check out his stuff.

New Orleans really is a magical place.  The staff and patrons at Checkpoint Charlie’s were all warm and hospitable.  Really, pretty much everyone we encountered in Orleans Parrish was.  No complaints at all, other than the fucking heat.

Loose Roots – 1.19.2011 – Never Sorry [Arrison Kirby, Katie Collins, Megan Driscoll, Rachel Jae, Dane Hill & David Davis]

Click to download the tracks:

Quinn

“Afraid of the Ghost”
“Tender Anomalies”
“House of Satan”
“Wok it Out / Sarabeth”

First legitimate session of 2011.  We were lucky to have Davis Davis (the red cloud) join in on the bass guitar.

I called it Loose Roots because this session made me feel like we were getting back to some low down, junky roots that we probably never really abandoned in the first place.  Also, the name feels appropriate considering that this one feels like a macabre ol’ time gospel session (except for “Wok it Out / Sarabeth”).  This may have the most to do with the lyrical content.  Heaven, hell, the devil and all that.

The picture is my cat, Quinn, when he was a kitten.  His roots are in New Orleans where I picked him up from a group of kids on the side of the road.  However, now in Knoxville, he’s addicted to the cold weather for some reason.

“Afraid of the Ghost” – We play it soooooo much.  It’s an easy one for people to remember, though, so it works well with session guests (such as the present David Davis).  David’s bass alongside my deep synth makes for some good tonal ground punching.

“Tender Anomalies” – This began as a jam between Dane and David.  I joined in and we became a three piece.  The girls were all in the room doing something else.  I’m not certain what, but their dialog in the background seems to fit right with the jam.

“House of Satan” – I could not resist resurrecting this one.  I changed the lyric I was not fond of the last time we did it.  Unfortunately, we lost the theramin for this version, but we did gain the bass.  I feel like I should have sung “the chous” one more time maybe.  Who cares, though?  I love this ballad ass shit.

“Wok it Out / Sarabeth” – I’m not sure how this came to be, but we all felt really really good about it as it did.  That’s Dane rapping.  The beats come from a song called “Sarabeth” that I’ve performed live, and we’ve tackled as a band, but don’t have a solid recording of for some reason.  Because of the source of the beats, we decided to interpolate elements of “Sarabeth” into this song.  It’s great, because “Sarabeth” includes the primary lyrics, “Eight sixteen,” which I wrote in reference to the title person’s birthday.  However, in weaving it into “Wok it Out,” Dane places the numbers into the  completely different context of hours and minutes.  Ah, sweet expansion!
