We have a new split cdr release out with Boosatali live at Camp Nowhere 11.8.06

It is on Soccer Mom Ebonics. Edition of 100 copies. Recorded by Jim "sparkle girl" Evans.

We haven't even heard the thang but shit we are excited. Hit us up if you want a copy or buy one at one of our or shevaun's shows. Wall of Sound and Electric Heavyland will have them as well.

We will be back playing shows in February. Also, in February we have a split coming out with our good friends Pillow Fight Fight. Man if you guys don't know Karl or Dustin you just should. Some of the nicest guys we have ever met. We still have copies of our release Acid Headband if any one would like one and we have two more cdr's coming out in early 2007. The first one out is entitled JUNKY MUSCLES and the second is DOUBT AND INDECISION. Until then...

squeaky shout out in the mercury for upcoming portland show

(Rotture, 315 SE 3rd) Two good-times dudes from Seattle, Ear Venom have been cultivating their psychedelic and experimental noise-fuckery, blasting Portland's eardrums every couple of months. Having much in common with local favorites Yellow Swans, Ear Venom twist and mangle processed guitar, tape loops, and sequencers through delay and various filters, leaving a thick grimy film crawling through your skin and blackening your cortex. Playing this night with DRUGS, who have transformed themselves into one of the noisiest and most crushing black metal bands in Portland. Recent addition to the band, Jared (SCARD)'s ferocious screams are quite terrifying and complement Bennett's gurgling groans and heavy bass drone. JAMES SQUEAKY

Wooden Octopus Pictures Fuck Yes!!!

A big thank you to Jim Evans of the infamous Sparkle Girl gang for the pictures... Sparkle Girl also recorded the set and will be releasing it very soon.

The jam is called WITHERED WIZARD OF STICK, it is about the movie Willow and how much better it would have been in Uriah Heap had done the soundtrack.
Thanks again Sparkle Girl!!!

Yep.

It’s in a very professional clear plastic baggie. A Fun-Pack!

Limited to 250 copies because covers have cut windows, three silk-screens, and two spray paint layers. Which Allan did completely by hand. Because he is nuts. In the best possible way.

The CD this time is a comp with five bands we like. The Vonneguts, Western Graves, Na, Ghost Family, and Ear Venom. It's folky and spacey and real nice. You'll dig it hopefully. We do!

No Longer DIY

on my wife and I's walk home last evening i saw a magazine called "home diy" or something catchy like that.... i proclaimed to my partner that DIY has been capitalized and corrupted beyond repair and we needed something new and mole like. she set forth the term....
OMO> On My Own
OOO> O Our Own

please let it be put forth that all Ear Venom releases, present and forthcoming, are no longer DIY but OOO or O cubed.

Saturday, July 29, 2006
