COMING IN FEBRUARY 2019: "The Veskarian Journals"

Introducing... “The Veskarian Journals!”

VESKARIANJOURNALS_TEASER.png

Beginning in October I will start posting one to two pages every two weeks of a new story entitled “The Veskarian Journals.”

It’s a first contact story about a human expedition to a planet inhabited by two intelligent races, one avian and the other insect. It will be told from the point of view of the expedition’s exobiologist in journal form.

I’m really excited about telling you this story. It’s a new method for me and a form that has a lot of possibilities and challenges. Plus y’all know it will have spaceships, monsters, laser guns and all the things I love.

You may think “This dude is nuts! How does he think he’s going to do this, continue writing and drawing Bunnyhead, making music and eating and living and all that stuff?!” And the answer is... I’ll figure it out. Like all stories, this one is burning a hole in my brain trying to get out into the world so either I let it out or my brain explodes. As Robert Frost once wrote, “I came to a fork in the road and chose the road less messy.” Pretty sure that’s the exact words he wrote.

“Okay then it’s you’re funeral,” you say, “How can I read this business about avian aliens?” Excellent question.

“The Veskarian Journals” will be available exclusively on my Patreon. I hope you will head over there and become a patron, joining me and the good Professor Scorsone on their journey. The comic will be available to patrons at all levels.

In the words of John Updike as he began the first of his “Rabbit” books... “Folks, this is going to absolutely fucking rule!”

Invisible Soundtracks: The Making of an Album!

NEW ALBUM "INVISIBLE SOUNDTRACKS" IS OUT NOW ON M-TRONIC!

crt_m_tronic_album_2018.png

My new album "INVISIBLE SOUNDTRACKS" Is out now. You can get it on the M-Tronic Bandcamp page. 

I am so stupidly thrilled to be added to the M-Tronic roster. If you told me 35 years ago when I began playing with electronics and making music that one day I would release an album on a label in France I would have shrugged and hid from you. That it's a label that has already released some of my favorite music since I began reviewing music for Igloo Magazine is even more amazing. 

This album is a big step forward for me as it was entirely recorded in my new studio space Flow Control 8.0. I took on new strictures, ideas and theories as I set out to record these songs and I think it shows. There's a lot more dissionance, a lot more atmosphere and at the same time more focus on melody, harmony and a bit of a slide back to musicianship. 

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.

Been a long time since I blogged and rolled oh ohoh!

Whoa. Hey. Where you been?

A lot of stuff happening here at CHizzle Rizzle Tizzle HQ. To wit:

BUNNYHEAD: I'm hard at work on my first ever comic book/graphic novel whatever you want to call it. As I'm writing and drawing/inking/coloring it on my own time and dime it's double duty. I love it! I'm aiming to release it in early June. "Bunnyhead: A Tale of The Corrupted Age" is the story of a lone robot, scouring the wastes of his desolate world in search of others like him. All this while fighting off invaders from the sky. It's a pretty dope tale as afar as I'm concerned and I think you'll agree. Here's the most action packed panel so far. It contains 0.00% spoilers.

Ooohh! In yo face, Hogbot!

Ooohh! In yo face, Hogbot!

CATHODE RAY TUBE: I've been busy musically. Yeah you know it. Recently Component Recordings has released my latest album The Void And Other Structures. Not to be a braggart but it's my thirty-first album. I think. Anyway I think it's pretty badass and I bet you will, too. Check it:

Other than that I'm a walk the dog, play Fallout and watch TV type of guy. Hope all is well with you.

NEW BRITTNEY SPARSE EP

It's here!!! The new Brittney Sparse EP "TRIUMPH OF A HORSE CALLED RADIOMAN" is a mix of drones, ambience and dancefloor grooves. Previous releases by BS include the Birdy EP and the deliriously crisp and weird "UNCOMFORTABLE."

ATLAS OF MIGRAINE IGLOO REVIEW + Videos!

"Cathode Ray Tube (aka Chang Terhune) returns with a new full-length titled  Atlas Of Migraine  for Oregon-based  Heterodox " - Igloo Magazine

"Cathode Ray Tube (aka Chang Terhune) returns with a new full-length titled Atlas Of Migraine for Oregon-based Heterodox" - Igloo Magazine

Igloo Magazine has reviewed Atlas of Migraine:

As a whole, Atlas Of Migraine details an expansive foray through the ventricles of intelligent dub music, mustering up hundreds of ideas that disperse evenly upon its technoid infused landscape. Deserving further accolades for his prolific work, Cathode Ray Tube explores multiple genres of the exp-electronic music scene as Atlas Of Migraine summarizes his signature exquisitely.

Atlas of Migraine is of course available on Heterodox Recordings.

And two new videos have surfaced for tracks from Atlas of Migraine!

Here's the video for First Thing On Land:

And here's the video for Florence:

CRT SPOTLIGHT ON WZBC 90.3FM NEWTON, MA!

In honor of the release of Atlas of Migraine, Homepiece Deftly D of Voidstar Productions was kind enough to do a spotlight of yours truly on the beloved radio wave frequency of 90.3FM and call letters WZBC! WZBC or The Z as it has been known is where the late great Gene Sweeney played my music for the first time in 1996. Now 21 year later Deftly D has kindly spent some of his valuable air time with my music for which I am humbled and grateful.

Check the archived recording by clicking the linked picture below! And tune in regularly on the web at www.wzbg.org for more great music!
