Live en San Antón is the result of a three days session of improvised music committed by Marc Nguyen and Guillaume Ollendorff recorded in the barrio San Antón, in the southern Spanish city of Alicante in April 2008.

Marc & O. have known each other for 13 years: they once worked together for a company that sold missiles and celebrity magazines; they later played and toured together in Marc's electronic-rock band project, called Colder. Guillaume has made music here and there (Tsé, The Mainstream Ensemble, Dust and Chimes) and now, has a life as an independant publisher of Philosophy. After all these years, this is the first time they have actually recorded together.

The intent of Scratoa! should be understood at the very moment you press play. It sounds like it is named. As some kind of big musical lapsus,the kind of ones kids do everyday with toys. A Vomited and improvised - somehow elegant, sometimes not - non sense. A musical role playing game experiment in ten parts, where Tex Avery, Baruch Spinoza and Herbie Hancock's spirits have been called over three nights to conduct a crowd of gorillas, frogs, cats, birds and ducks in heat, forgotten cartoon characters, families of gypsies and guitars, local pagan marching bands, and drunk kids armed with fire crackers.

Experiencing Scratoa! will probably not cure any disease nor it will help you improve some social skills either. But listening to this first session may however be recommended for all these tiny moments of your life when all you fancy is just a good old fix of primitive poetry.

US 7" Killer Pimp PIMPK013

  1. Someday - [MP3]
  2. Cracked Sun

Paul Baker - vocals, guitar, bass, drum machine
John Fedowitz - vocals, guitar, bass, drum machine

Before there was A Place To Bury Strangers, there was Skywave, a three piece noise pop band from Fredericksburg, Virgina. When Ollie left to move to NYC, Paul and John remained and reorganized as Ceremony. While there will be undeniable comparisons made to APTBS (they still remain friends and share an affinity for loud guitars), Ceremony employ a songcraft far more focused on making catchy pop tunes than blowing out speakers and eardrums.

Limited to 500 copies this 7" single is a teaser for the duo's LP & CD on Killer Pimp, Rocket Fire, due early 2010. "Cracked Sun," the B-side is exclusive.

For live dates, videos, and more information see myspace.com/ceremonytheband

"some very fine noise-pop" - Built on a Weak Spot

"Ceremony's music is a superb hybrid of dark noisy pop, shoegaze, and electro; the result is a sound both unique and nostalgic." - Superstarcastic

"Utterly exhilarating" - Opus

someday

when it's cold and the world is gray
and the rain won't go away
i see your smile and your glowing face
the rain is gone without a trace

sweetness under the moon
or a sunny afternoon
take my heart and my life
cause someday you'll be my wife

someday

when it's dark and it's winter cold
my hands are numb too frozen to hold
in the black of my blackest nights
i'll be burning underneath your light

sweetness under the moon
or a sunny afternoon
take my heart and my life
cause someday you'll be my wife

someday

US 7" Killer Pimp PIMPK014

  1. But It's So (7" mix) - [MP3]
  2. Makes No Sense

Kim Field - Vocals, Q-Chord, Omnichord, Keyboard
John Ceparano - Guitar, Bass, Vocals
Mark Robinson - Keyboard
James Renard - Drums
Sanford Santacroce - Bass

Mastered by Jeff Lipton at Peerless Mastering

Classic pop songwriting fused with hard driving disco backbeats... hooky bass lines... layered, shoegazey guitars and floating, atmospheric synths with Kim Field's unmistakably sincere and distinctively un-affected ethereal vocals.

Both songs are from the forthcoming LP & CD Mirrors In Your Eyes, Soundpool's third full-length album, due early 2010 on Killer Pimp.

For live dates, videos, and more information see soundpoolmusic.com

"Few new artists match Soundpool's vocal delivery and sonic awareness" - Musicisnotdead

but it's so

i can't tell you why it is like this
i don't know why time hasn't come
i can't tell you where it is going
i don't know why we've not become

but it's so
though i'm not sad today
yeah it's so
but it won't hurt today

won't you tell me it doesn't matter
make me believe worries can hide

but it's so
though i'm not sad today
yeah it's so
but it won't hurt today

yeah it's so
