WIERD Presents a Very Rare live performance by SOLVENT!

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

Tonite WIERD proudly welcomes SOLVENT from dark synth Toronto for a live performance of minimal electronic music at midnight! Finally this gig is goin down as we've tried to get the great Jason Amm several times over the past few years and our not so Very Rare neighbors to the mountie-VRatrolled North certainly don't make it easy for Canadian artists to spread the cold sounds. Needless to say tonite will be quite special indeed as Jason will be debuting a whole new set of trax off his first new LP in 6 years 'Subject to Shift' out on the Ghostly International label, and what a record it is. Intensely coagulating the many and varying traditions of late EBM and industrial early acid techno and classic minimal synth, 'Subject' is the darkest Solvent effort yet, can't wait to hear these songs live! Andrew P. just sent over a great interview with Jason just up over at Self-Titled check it out below. Really hope everyone can make it out for this one god knows when we'll be fortunate enough to get our faces shredded and internally cleansed and wiped blank by the wild winds of Ontario again...VR.

I'm very happy to say the cover art and tracklists are now up on the site for the next two Wierd Records releases - the debut albums from our long time friends Frank(just Frank) from France and Automelodi from Montreal due for release July 6th and 13th respectively. These two records have been a long time coming, can't wait to play them for the world next month! A few new trax streaming over at the bands sites as well so please pay them a 'visit': http://www.wierdrecords.com/store/index.php?cPath=22

In other rather sad news of the WIERD I wanted to ask you all to take a moment of silence (Silence on-line is my new fave thing, btw...VR) for our beloved WIERD family fog machine MISTY who some of you may have noticed passed away into the ether at long last last Wed. at precisely 11:36 pm. I am also truly sorry to make you all see each other in the WIERD World for the last 4 hours of the party...horrible, I swear on the froide gods abstract graves I promise it will never happen again, WIERD is NOT reality, none of you really exist and this is all a dream you never wanted to have really I swear...and yes its still goin rest assured...so until I finish my long awaited architectuo-historical manifesto on the VRadical relationship between fog machines and the internal conceptual dissolution of all architecture itself, the memory of 'the real' setting it last week will simply plague you all forever...Rest assured however everyone, Misty's eminently virile younger sister arrived from Northern France yesterday and shes ready for pleasure tonite. Unlike Misty rumours have it she's ravenously heterosexual, but with the monstrous pressures inherent in my bringing her out of the closet each and every week I have a feeling that may be quite a lot to handle for someone her age, so we'll see how she does this evening...then again she will be doing quite a bit of 'blowing' so uh hmmm, complicated so that means she...where are my brilliant queer theory VRiends when I need them help(!)...alas and a loss for words as always...RIP language yesss, long live the brouillard definitif!!!
