NEW "HEXXES" Cassete Tape and SPD-FEST at BETALEVEL

Last Saturday's show at Betalevel was so much fun. Despite a "mysterious" technical problem (Rhea's Space Echo Pedal for some weird reason was not working!), we managed to get the our set going. We have been so stoked about doing the show for a while especially since we get to play with howardAMB and Bobb Bruno, two amazing bands that also use the Roland SPD-S drumpad which was the common denominator of the all the bands in the show. It was also the first time that magick orchids both played the Roland SPD-S pads which turned out to be so rad especiallyw ith the samples Rhea had on her pad. howardAMb played a really amazing set and their songs were so captivating especially with all the different sounds bouncing all throughout the space. howardAMB just keeps getting more amazing everytime we see them, it was quite a feat having to play between them and Bobb Bruno, who performed with Light Array Orchestra doing really psychedelic visuals. Bobb was pretty badass as usual in his bunny suit. He shows you what the possibilities of playing the SPD-S are. He also has some pretty great samples, one even sounds like it was Rhea singing. Mmmmm.... Though the place was quite a challenge to find especially with all the other events going on in Chinatown, we were glad to see familiar faces. Betalevel is a really rad place that is located in an underground basement right in an alley behind Full House Restaurant on Hill Street in Chinatown. They have Karaoke Nights and Movie Nights and other interesting nights that will trip the hell out of you. Check em out!

Also, we just finished making the cassette tapes for our upcoming Northwest Tour. Its
called HEXXES and its pretty much a mixture of the different sets we have been doing and some other songs that we have been working on for the past few weeks. Here is the tracklist:

SIDE A:
mind over matters
bright evil goodness

far away look
vegan vampyrs

fak dat nu aidj shet!

SIDE B:
ghost of a dead medium
forbidden games

what grows in yr garden
seasick version dub
passionista (brenmar remix)
abort-retry-fail




We only have it available in 50 limited copies for five dollars at our shows, here in our blog, at our myspace page, and at the Open-Minded distro soon. It also comes with a free sticker.



Also, we are playing tonight at the Tribal Cafe for a Lots O Crap show...

EVERYONE HATES A TOURIST.

We'll be leaving for the Northwest in two weeks and we've been busy getting our shit together. Already done with the recordings we did for our cassette tape release which we'll have available soon. Its gonna be called "HEXXES" and should be up on the Open-Minded distro soon or at or shows. And we'll be finishing the recordings with Piry tomorrow, its gonna be our last session, so hopefully we get that together to make copies for our tour. We are still trying to finalize some dates especially around the PDX area and we are thankful to many peeps and friends who've been very helpful.

Anyways, we are playing tonite at this new venue that our friends Josh and Isaac are starting. Its called Pantheon. Its gonna be in a spot called Tony's. Its actually near where we used to live on 7th and Santa Fe. We'll be playing with Cobalt Cranes and Voice On Tape and Sean Pineda. We play at 10:30 PM.



Also here is something for you..since you managed to click on this blog and read.

GROWING IN SPIRIT


He who hopes to grow in spirit
will have to free himself from obedience and respect.
He'll hold to some laws
but mostly he'll violate
both law and custom, and go beyond
the established, inadequate norm.
Sexual pleasure will have much to teach him.
He won't be afraid of the destructive act:
half the house will have to come down.
This way he'll grow virtuously into wisdom.

—C. P. Cavafy

Friday Night @ Silver Factory Studios

We are playing a somewhat last minute kind of show this Friday at Downtown LA. Though, we are currently finishing recordings this week -its pretty obvious that we couldn't say no to such an amazing line-up of bands. We will be playing a new set and hopefully some new songs called "Pedro On A Bike" and "Bull Of Heaven".



Also if you have the time to read this, I'm sure you'll have the time to vote for the fabric design we have up at Spoonflower Its called "BLUE MONDAY", and if you think it looks familiar, its because its the design we use as a background for our myspace shmyface. Its pretty quick. Just click and then thats it. You can vote by clicking here. Thanx.

Magick Orchids shirt

Here is a design that we are going to make into a shirt for our tour. We will only be printing it in one color because multiple colors take longer time to print especially since we are just doing it ourselves. But down below is the same design in flashing bright colors, maybe we can make colored ones later on. We will sell it for a fair price at shows just to help pay for our gas and food.

one color:


multiple colors:


We are currently finishing recordings and mastering some of the ones we have done into tape. We will also resume the ones we are doing with Piry soon. We have also been uploading some of those new songs on myspace and maybe a few more that aren't done yet. We want our myspace to be as current as possible to what we are doing now. We have been busy getting ready for our tour and the SF Zine Fest and are still trying to contact people about booking shows for some dates that are still open. Rhea will also be doing a Zine Workshop at the Renegade Craft Fair that is being held on the 13th floor(?) of the California Market Center this weekend. We will have zines and stuff from our little distro.
