Everything must come to a goddamn end. That’s not to say that it can’t be picked up again in the future for shits & giggles.

Over the past six years Ghoul Poon has morphed into some serious monstrosities.

From a noisey blast beat solo project – to a death-dance audio/visual duo – to a shoegazing trio – to a guitar/bass/synth powerhouse – to nihilist punk

I have recorded so much over the past two years that I’m now ready to put out there.

Starting with a full length follow up to my last record Bastard Sorcerer.

Here as a free download is Ultimate Downer

http://lofikabuki.bandcamp.com/album/ultimate-downer

Following this I will be releasing all of the shit I’ve recorded in EP formats for the rest of the year.

Now we are in the present. I am going to be performing one man shows under the name Sun Burdens.

I have a free self-titled EP right here

http://lofikabuki.bandcamp.com/album/sun-burdens

I will be debuting Sun Burdens this Saturday at the UAG in Albany opening for RAILBIRD and RAWHEAD.

We have a new live line up. We’ve lost our good friend Greg Tebanno over scheduling conflicts, but we have invited back old members of Ghoul Poon Chris Brown (2008-2010) and John Gill (2010).

you can catch this line up debut on March 17 at Valentine’s with White Load (Load Records) & Chloroform Party.

New 40 minute limited edition VHS titled ‘I Dare You Vol.1’. The first in a series featuring Ghoul Poon, Asian Women on the Telephone, Blood Stereo and Gerritt Wittmer/Paul Knowles.

New EP “Scrying in Bed” Jan 2012.

Preview the single “Silly Axe”: http://soundcloud.com/ghoul-poon/ghoul-poon-silly-axe

Spreaders / Zilmrah (NY)
Both of these bands shift their sound between Drone and Harsh Free Noise. Full sound spectrum to evolve from controlled silence, handmade instruments and other treats to be expected from this collaboration.

Holy fucking need of an update.

Over the last few months Ghoul Poon has mutated into a full band including Asa Morris (Black Andy) and ex – Firefighter Font members Greg Tebanno and Ben Patton.

“The Cosmic Conversation”, a full length follow up to “Bastard Sorcerer” has been finished for awhile. It has been potentially shelved due to the exploration of new recordings with new members.

A new DVD release “Ultimate Downer Video Gospel” has been temporarily shelved.

We played hardly any shows this summer in anticipation of opening for Atari Teenage Riot. The show was cancelled.

We have a new video for our new single “Cities of Scandal”. The video was shot & edited in a single day. Written & directed by myself with some additional direction by Chris Brown. It stars Gary Ziroli (ex Antic Hay / Capital Air).

The Black Ships have been very busy in preparation to open for Blood on the Dance Floor at Northern Lights.

___________________

As many of you know, we here at Lo-Fi Kabuki, every year put together a Halloween compilation. Well, Shane does most of the work, but I (Asa) occasionally pretend I do some of it. Anyway, we are now accepting submissions for VOLUME FOUR. This compilation always goes over extremely well, and garners a substantial amount of attention. I do suggest getting in on it.

BUT FIRST!

You need to know the rules, regulations, and rub a dub:

PLEASE NO COVERS. Originals only. I know, your band does an astounding “Monster Mash” cover. We don’t care. We want to hear your original shit. Be creative. Have fun with it.

We prefer local (Upstate NY) and regional (NYC, Mass, Buffalo…) acts, but maybe, if your shit is really good, or we have heard of you, we’ll consider throwing you on there.

We prefer song songs. With lyrics. The first songs we cut each year are instrumentals (or covers). That’s not to say we don’t enjoy them (1983′s “Lonely Ghosts” and Motel’s “Costumes Don’t Make the Whores” come to mind), but unfortunately, we have to keep drunken Halloween singing party people in mind.

Lastly, you might get cut. In fact, there is a good chance you will. We try to get everyone on that we can, and each year, up until the last day, we think we will, and then we get flooded with 40 fucking entries, and we have to swing the axe, and no, it isn’t first co9me first serve. It’s who we think are the best entries. SO BE FUCKING GOOD.
