Thighpaulsandra and Greater Than One Handmade Releases

E-mail Print PDF
The next two Brainwashed Handmade series releases are The Lepore Extrusion by Thighpaulsandra and Kill the Pedagogue by Greater Than One. Both are once again issued in a letterpressed edition of 500, both are on CD for the first time, both come with bonus enhanced content, and both will be released officially on October 24th.

 

Thighpaulsandra's newest release is the score to an interactive video installation by New York-based visual artist Daniel McKernan titled Is Evolution Evil?, which featured the world's #1 transsexual, Amanda Lepore.  Thighpaulsandra has been a member of Queen Elizabeth (with Julian Cope), Spiritualized, and Coil and has released four full-length albums on his own. Amanda Lepore has recorded music with the Fatal Art Syndicate, has been featured on TV shows like Entertainment Tonight, and has a Swatch watch, "Time Tranny," which was at one point the fastest selling limited edition Swatch! Daniel McKernan took photographs and video of Amanda and combined them with music from Thighpaulsandra to create the exhibition which opened in June of 2005 in New York.  Included as enhanced content is a video of the installation with narrative by McKernan, an essay on Is Evolution Evil?, and schematic. The music is three movements mixed by Thighpaulsandra into one long piece which is just as eerie and precious as a superstar like Amanda Lepore is.

Kill the Pedagogue is one of the earliest archives of Greater Than One, originally released in 1985 on a limited edition cassette in a red Chinese envelope with cut outs of paper, a sticker, image, and poster; wrapped with a red yarn and sealed in a ziplock bag. The music is aggressive and punchy, with beats and horror sounds, yet the underlying drones are dark and thunderous. It's no surprise the group's first full-length record, 1987's All the Masters Licked Me, was released by Lustmord and Graeme Revell's Side Effects Records. This is the first time for this recording to appear on CD, and it's enhanced with content of images, text, and bonus audio files. Number four in the Brainwashed Handmade series, this was also letterpressed by Mike Babcock at Interrobang (whose clients have included Hydrahead, Relapse, Kimchee, Tumult, and SharkAttack).
