Vrooom! Vrooom! Vrooomy Vrooom Vrooom!
Pigeon at the wheel!
Hi! Well. Here we are with an update! It’s been quite some time since the last one, but that’s becuase we don’t put much stock in the “consistency is key” formula. Here at Lando Frock Recordings we don’t have much use for words unless there is actually something to say. Speaking of…
The Lovely Savages
These guys have been slowly, methodically, releasing some recorded material… and playing some shows! It’s a fucking miracle in slow motion progress whatever the hell that means. The better part of that news is that the stuff they’ve been coming out with has been really damn good – and totally fitting the personality of our little label here. You can’t get any more “lo-fi/no-budget” than what these guys are doing. Although I have to say, they’re getting up into “mid-fi” range. Might have to talk to them about that. Don’t want to blow our rep!
Anyways, they’ve got some 45s up on bandcamp with a bunch of bonus stuff if you buy. Not a bad idea for the TLS completist because I know for a fact some of the mixes have changed and the bonus stuff won’t be available once they get around to finishing the whole CD’s worth of goo.

Wow. This guy. We haven’t been sure what to expect from him, but he’s finally let have a scanty listen to what’s coming own the pike. Near as we can tell, it’s a selection of arranged found sounds. What I heard was really cool, strange and bizarre. We here at Lando Frock Recordings definitely go in for the strange and bizarre! That’s about all I can say about it for now. Yay Spanky!
Not sure what’s going on with these guys. Clearly Spanky has been doing some shit, but haven’t heard anything on this front. About 6 months ago we had a cool rough mix of a weird little ditty they were working on. Then we heard they were completely re-working it. Then pretty much radio silence. When I talked to Spanky last about his own shit I asked about STTÖNKNOD. His response was “Yeah, no, totally. That shit’s coming. Had some upheavals. Not with the project but individually. Life. It’s happening though. Probably be later or so.” I went ahead and interpreted that to mean after the first of the year. (fingers crossed.)
That’s the gig! On other news, we’ll probably be moving the studio to new digs in 2013. We’ve probably got 3 to 6 months left in our current secret location. Time to find a new secret location!
Until next time…
