check out my band.
as the title says, its name is blue shirts.
we are a free-improv noise collective. anything goes, there is no solid line-up, there are about 6 people who are 'members', and dozens of guests who have participated in gigs/recordings/jams. we have played sets with anywhere between 2 and 12 people doing noise.no standard instrumentation. we use/have used drums, keyboards, analog synthesizers, organ, guitars, bass, vocals, percussion, effect pedal loops, feedback, musical spoons, saxophone, clarinet, whistles, mouth harmonica, piano, crates, engraver, and tonns of other stuff.

whatever's clever.
we havent done any truly handnumbered releases yet (well, our cdr is kinda, we did like 10 or 11 prints of several copies each, and they are all labelled as such - copy 6/6 print Cool, but some of our tapes have been limited (only 40 copies of we jam with jam in a jam, 6 copies of mean green, etc) while others (banned from, $4) are not.
i cant imagine the rest of the band cares either, so.. you can decide and let us know!!!

Excellent! That would be great as we have 2 more SFM releases ready to go this month, I'd like to photocopy the covers all at the same time kinda deal and then promote the shit outta them at the same time pretty much.

BLUE SHIRTS - HEAR NO EVIL SMELL NO EVIL SAY NO EVIL out now on SKULLFUCKINGMETAL!!
contact me or Keeg for a copy. Keeg sells them cheaper i think.. so unless you are local to me, prolly cheaper to get it off him.

5 tracks of live (instrumental) noise. includes an unexpected and irrelevant cover song. plenty of guest appearances. 420% halifax fueled. one side more power electronics, other side more no wave noise. free madness!

we are psyched to be released on SFM; the same label that released Hellacaust, Gruuthaagy, Cumsock, Toxic Holocaust, and countless others. Cheers Keeg!!

new release out! w00t w00t!



Quote :
Four Way Split CD-R with Indigenous Nudes, Disleksick, Fossils, and Blue Shirts

"Londoom Live Volume 1". Recorded live August 15th 2010 at Hey Rock studios at the ongoing noise night series (where noise people show up but fans dont!). This new series is in response to the "Hammer Live" series that we were lucky enough to be a part of earlier this year (release number 12 for you nerds keeping track).

Disleksick contribution is a Harsh Noisecore track. Contact Mics, Vocals through distortion, guitar freak outs, insane vocals, blast beats. Was one of the best sets we have ever played and quite different from what we usually do live.

The Indigenous Nudes are a new group from London that suddenly showed up and are going to destroy each and everytime. The set this night was harsh noise pushing into power electronics territory. Great stuff, this is their first release but not the last I hope.

Fossils is the super prolific group from Hamilton (aka THE HAMMER). Sax freaks outs drown out buried and mysterioys noise. Tape loops of the future played in reverse. Something odd like that.

Blue Shirts are the reason this show happened. From the east coast of Canada, they toured Ontario as a duo and brought one long and loud set to Hey Rock! this summer night. Interesting stuff, kinda like the Halifax Explosion but only out of one speaker.

Limited to 50 copies on Coffin Crawl Records.




order from Disleksick/Coffin Crawl Records, or soon enough I will have copies to distro.







and here's some info on what we've been compared to - Halifax Explosion

haha thats not the first time this has come up.. i only knew of the brown shirts before we started.. apparently Blue Shirts are/were:

Comics



[edit] Culture



[edit] Politics



[edit] Sports




plus the Thai Blue Shirts (i believe pro-government protesters).

we got the name from the place where all the original members worked - army/navy store, which had a stock of ~12 000 surplus canadian navy blue button up shirts. they are our on-stage uniform..
