BACONHANGERlegion
it’s been three years since the release of his debut, but baconhanger hasn’t been slacking off—he’s been sharpening his production skills! the beats and textures are as punishing as ever, but now they cut like a knife instead of bludgeoning you into submission. call him legion, for his breaks are massive!

stAllio!a huge smash
“a huge smash” is 11 tracks of glitchy post-mashup madness. it picks up directly where “mash smarter” left off, as stAllio! smashes pop music into increasingly smaller pieces and then weld them back together in new and innovative ways. if “mash smarter not harder” was the hobbit, then this is the lord of the rings. rejoice: the golden age of mashup is born!

BAD TASTE #31

stAllio!mash smarter not harder EP
mash smarter not harder isn’t just an EP. it’s an audio manifesto, a roadmap to a mashed-up future. the goal of this EP isn’t just to generate downloads or make you shake your ass — though it promises to do both — but to spawn a new golden age of mashups.
with this EP, stAllio! introduces a brand-new style that takes the mashup aesthetic to the next level. samples shuffle in and out, then back in again before you even notice them. the music flips, skips, and hops between your favorite hits so effortlessly you could be forgiven for thinking it was all meant to be this way. this new style — whatever you call it: post-mashup, dance collage, new-school bootleg — mixes the energy and danceability of Girl Talk with the subversive wit of Negativland and Cassetteboy.
if you love mashups, if you used to love mashups but nowadays find them a bit boring, or if you’re just interested in remixing, sampling, audio manipulation, and the like, you need to download mash smarter not harder immediately. get it now and get on the bandwagon while there’s still room.
is this EP as good as we say it is? is it even possible for a record to live up to this much hype? the only way to find out is to download it right now! you’ve got nothing to lose, because the download is FREE!

BAD TASTE #29

UNSZENEreckless stepchild
5 years after it’s initial very limited release, *reckless stepchild* is finally unleashed to a wider audience. circuit-bent electronics & mutilated tape loops produce cascading waves of static that give way to intermittent rhythmic underpinnings in a true free-form spirit. lo-fi & raw in nature, unszene will lead you to a world of analog in decay. featuring collaborations with bobby vomit & unusable signal.

BACONHANGERhoosier holocauspitality
baconhanger’s debut, *hoosier holocauspitality*, may be bad taste’s most brutal, unrelentingly punishing release yet. the audio equivalent of a middle finger in your face, *hoosier holocauspitality* is 15 tracks of intense breakcore and gabber, jacked up on sample cutups and circuitbent toys. from start to finish, there’s no time to relax, no place to hide from the aural assault.

ANIMALS WITHIN ANIMALSparts is parts
“parts is parts” is 77 and a half minutes of intense noise and ridiculous sampling from the people who brought you the 2001 collage epic “mono a mono”. this release blends the madcap sound of AWIA’s legendary live shows with mellancamp cutups and other more “traditional” style audio collage to create AWIA’s hardest, craziest release ever. in addition to the free mp3 release, this album was issued in an extremely limited run of cds with handmade cover art.

BAD TASTE #25

HUMDRUMbrokin
the bad taste debut by longtime producer humdrum finally sees the light of day. bass squelches and dark bleeps coalesce into electro bangers. digital tadpoles evolve into crazy bullfrogs right before your ears. hard-as-concrete kicks and heavy bass go on a voyage, where they meet creepy ambience and synthesizer bleats. “brokin” is like staring at a puzzle, and suddenly all the pieces fit and the solution is so obvious you can’t believe that you never saw it before. dark grooves appear and disappear seemingly from nowhere, but they were always there. you just couldn’t hear them until humdrum pointed them out.

BAD TASTE #24/BRR! #1

stAllio!true data” 12″
bad taste’s very first, and probably last, vinyl release! “true data” is stAllio!’s triumphant return to databending, as he rips his hard drive a new one, plunges deep inside of it to mine the juiciest sounds he can find, and meticulously sequences them into four morphenomenal slammers. this is either the greatest or the most ill-advised stAllio! release to date, depending on whether you’re judging it by musical quality or by the amount of money lost on the project. (a bunch of copies remain unsold; for god’s sake, buy a copy already!) stream it on soundcloud before you buy!
FORMAT: 12″ vinyl

BAD TASTE #23

stAllio!maura’s milk chocolate bath
somewhere between cut&paste/collage & “hardcore”/noise, with enough elements of both to alienate purist fans of either. laugh as st! slices apart pop culture to explore the links between sex, food, & bathing! drool at the glossy, full-color pop-erotic artwork! ponder how st! got a real woman to pose topless for said artwork! sometimes noisy, sometimes raunchy, & consistently silly, this cd might make you feel dirty. but will you feel dirty enough to wash up in a giant tub full of cocoa-flavored cereal?

BAD TASTE #22

MURKBOXbinary drift
murkbox, best known for his block-rockin beats and bursts of humor, turns expectations on their ear with “binary drift”. last time, he asked you to hold the murk, add extra cheese. this time he goes dairy-free in an album of pure murk! 20 tracks of dark ambience and eerie soundscapes, crackling and buzzing and washing over you as you become lost in the binary drift.

DR. BUTCHER M.D.The Confines of Flesh
it was all building up to this… and then it all fell apart. bad taste went on hiatus right before label head dr. butcher m.d. was about to release his epic sophomore release, “The Confines of Flesh”. years in the making, and then a few years more in the waiting, “Confines” picks up where the doctor’s debut left off, and turns the mayhem up to 11! bad taste VIPs have been diggin’ on these tunes for years; now, the general public will finally get a chance to hear this pivotal release by bad taste’s doctor of breakcore.

BAD TASTE #19a

sound not fit for human consumption printed accompaniment
this booklet was originally designed to be an integral part of the compilation, but later decided (due to raised printing prices) to offer it seperatly as not to discourage sales of the comp (marketing genius, i’m sure). it features 18 double sided, black and white pages, 92% of which were designed by the performer/project themselves. it even features advertisements to give it that consumerism feel that you so greatly desire. the pages are topped off with a full color glossy cover, bound poorly with plastic slide grip report covers (you know – like you had in grade school?)… and the 1st 40 copies will additionally be packaged in a color folder that even includes a bad taste magnet for you to display your favorite page from the booklet proudly on mom’s refridgerator door for the whole family to appreciate.

BAD TASTE #18

stAllio!errata vol ii
yes – vol i has not come out yet, okay? it’s one of the “joys” of being small time… regardless, the errata series showcases material of stAllio!’s that was either cut from previous releases due to time restraints or just because of their plain weirdness, not to mention some very old material that would not have seen the light of day any other way. vol ii features 7 cuts that did not make their way onto _the fezzuck_, 4 OLDschool, pre-”dissonance is bliss” (i.e., from 1996) panerific tracker tunes, as well as 4 other “jam punishments” from 2000. more weirdness served up only the way that stAllio! can.

MAINLINEshockorama: live @ animal farm
this is a recording of all new material from our performance at animal farm back on july 8th, 2000. dr. butcher had a throat infection of some sort… murkbox had his ankles so badly crippled he could only move a few steps a minute – and still we pulled it off! completely thrown together on-the-fly, this release is a conglomerate of a boss sampler, fast tracker 2, an arp axxe, a 606, and even a little bit of electribe action (not to mention all of the equipment that was not working properly!)… this live performance lands somewhere between “chatter bleethrough” and “japanese soundscapes of effects”: hard kicks, looped voices, noise backgrounds, harsh breaks… 55 minutes that moves through a few flavors.

BAD TASTE #16

stAllio!_the fezzuck_
This third full-length on Bad Taste could be stAllio!’s breakthrough release. The upgrade of the stAllio! sound moves in all directions, at times both darker & lighter, both more & less accessible than
previous releases. 17 tracks, from the almost straightforward hardcore of “action figure sold separately” or “vocational rehabilitation” to the crunching noise-break of “fast like now” to high-pitched silliness on “swingset” to arpeggio-worship on “peanut butter” to out-of-context confusion on “behind the refrigerator door” to… hell, I don’t know how to describe this cd & you won’t either, but the plentiful sound samples on the Bad Taste site as well as stAllio!’s own site will leave you asking yourself “…the fezzuck?!” We’re very excited about this new release; it could even sell in the double digits! With full-color artwork & a free sticker included.

the mainline side ventures deep into dark ambientechnoise experiments. droning rhythms move from machine repetitions to liquid spatters alongside decaying sounds and noise textures. deep, dark, and delicious.
the temple of S_i_D side sings the praises of the commodore 64! with using only samples derived from C64 sound sources, the listener is treated to 30 minutes of nostalgic sounds, revisited and manipulated to please today’s audience. the commodore 64 is not dead – it is only dreaming – and now you are invited to listen to those dreams!

we could’ve called this group “Superstars of Bad Taste” because this collective includes Dr Butcher MD, murkbox, stAllio!, founder Lander Kitt, & anyone else who wants to join (even you!). the word of the day is “anti-consistency” for this debut from AWIA… hard beats, distorted spastic grooves, & sample cut-ups reign over 12 tracks of oddity. Learn the truth about parasites, the religious significance of the starfish, the miracle of antioxidants, & more. a free, confusing marketing sticker is included with each cdr.

MASOCHISTIC EARmidwest forever
the unrecognized pioneers of lowest-fi return with a treat that has been burried in the bad taste crypts for well over 2 years now. two assholes with no sense of quality control force family and friends to partake of their own brand of *music*. they think they can rap, make noise, rock a guitar, laugh out loud, drone out, and drop a beat or two as it only fuels their utter nonsense. who needs shame when you have rock?

BAD TASTE #11/TRASH TAPES #20

“Do you think it’s cool, to be a one men scene.” split compilation
This compilation has been taken a little while in the making, but i feel it’s more than worth the wait! the comp is a co-op between trash tapes (leipzig, germany) and bad taste (indiana, u.s.a.). it crams in 21 artists in all, featuring (in order of appearance): COMPLETELY FUCKED UP SOCIETY, OHM KILL, INAPT, PESTCORE, TREMOR, ASHTAR DXD, INU:SHINI, NOIZECREATOR, XOTOX, SKELTON 93/aleXdee, DEEP, BUFO BUFFO, N.D. COLLAPSE, SLAVE CYLINDER, MATT DEMMON, stAllio!, DR. BUTCHER MD, GABBIST MONKS, MURKBOX, BEEP THE SPEAKER, and MAINLINE. most of the songs lay in the hard, distorted percussion elements, but there are even a few suprises here and there to keep things interesting. this comp even comes with a 12 page double sided booklet, so even the packaging is swank.
FORMAT: CDR. OUT OF PRINT.

BAD TASTE #10

DR. BUTCHER, M.D.Musical Deviate
Finally, after several releases within other projects, i finally got enough material together to have my own full length release: the tape features 3 tracks from spring ’97 and 7 from the fall of ’99 – go figure.
if the description of the music was on the back of a movie, it would have to read something like, “a full on 60 minutes of B-music, featuring splatter bass, horror noise, and exploitation breaks!” buy more crap.

BAD TASTE # 9

stAllio!Perpetual Emotion Machine
After the hard drive nightmare that was “Dissonance is Bliss”, stAllio! comes back offering another 60 minutes of his unique approach to driving you crazy. This guy does more with a mic and a 4 track than what half of you fucks can do with tons of equipment sitting around: with a “use what you’ve got” approach, anything becomes an instrument in his grip. “P.E.M.” is highlighted with all sorts of unusual rhythms and frequencies, contantly morphing in what can seem incoherent at times only to fall into place once again while maintaining definite flows throughout songs. Dunno what I’m saying? Do my descriptions mean nothing? Check it out yourself online (try p2p)

STUNT ROCKthis whole fucking scene is growing tired and so am i.

Chances are you’ve heard about his “Richard Pryor” track off of Addict002 and if you’re lucky you’ve seen him bash his head bloody red at MEAT performances so now is your chance to see what this fool does with 50 minutes of time! I hope you like it noisy, because this bad boy is NASTY for sure, it’s cut and paste madness of beats, rhythms, and folk saying absurd stuff, but it’s all under 50 tons of distorted hell, so no whiners! This tape probably features more samples saying “bad taste” than I’ll ever find. And with titles like “you’re the dipshit who bought this tape”, you can’t go wrong.

vs
MURKBOXHold the Murk Add Extra Cheese
The QCS side is a day in the life of a disgruntled telemarketer. Made by (an) anonymous producer(s) from out of town, this 14 minute release features 3 songs: one craftily programmed, sample laden track
(hear those telephones go to work!) with all sort of beat changes, a crunchy noise type interlude, and a hilarious “survey” featuring muzak in the background that had me rolling on the floor the first time I heard it (and then some). Get hired.
murkbox offers up a different spin on his productions, “It’s All Fun and Games Until Someone Loses an Eye” is one song spanning the whole 30 minutes which is more or less a continuously mixed barrage of all types of beats – loops, breaks, 4/4, whatever – with noise creeping in it’s ugly head here and there, as well as being COMPLETELY sampledelic. “I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up!”
FORMAT: cassette. OUT OF PRINT.

BAD TASTE #6

stAllio!dissonance is bliss!
this is the first release from the newest member of the bad taste degenerate collective. hailing from ye ol’ indianapolis, stAllio! presents a flavor that’s all his own. “dissonance…” is a journey through infection, disease, & death : of what exactly, i’m not quite sure, but the sounds points to the ways of pain. at times the songs resemble some sort of soundtrack for the decimation of your hard drive as a virus destroys it – with no hope of recovery.
side 0 is a collection of structured noise – starting off minimal and building from song to song until the listener comes down with “buck fever!” at the end of the tape. then we enter side 1 : you thought the fever subsided, but things take a turn for the worse in these two noise orgies, ranging from a sporadic squelch attack to a guttural grinding end. in stAllio’s own words : “in the paleolithic era, prehistoric computers were avidly hunted by early hunter-gatherers, who would break them open & suck out the warm meaty music inside. now, with the new extended e.p “dissonance is bliss”, stAllio! has revived this ancient tradition.”

MASOCHISTIC EAR92% Good
first things first, this release consists of five tapes : it would be nice to call it a box set, but without an actual box it just doesn’t seem right… rubber band set would be a better description. so what the hell
was 5 tapes for? for EVERYTHING – sporatic ramblings, keybord smashing, throat gurgling, manical laughter… cracked out lo-fi geetar, speed, slow, how low can you go? REAL low… e.p.s. worshipping, distorted spontanaity… meditative, ritualistic static… stabbing, grinding noise noise NOISE… few will get it, and even fewer will “get it” once they’ve got it, but oh well… i love the stuff and that’s why it’s here. what’s the point? work with what you’ve got – anything is possible…
