Never Cry Wolf: TBWB Cassette & Cymatic T-shirts

One rainy evening in Tokyo, over 8 years ago, I met Thomas Bey William Bailey. We talked at length about obscure electronic music and missing our last trains home, we whiled away the hours in a karaoke room singing Happy End & Ayumi Hamasaki until the sun rose. Soon after we formed a group with our good friend Jason Funk (Helll), named ourselves after a line in a Truffaut film (Bien Victor) and recorded straight to MD in several cheap practice spaces around Tokyo. We both ended up leaving Tokyo and moving back to North America, but kept in touch, even finding an opportunity to play together again here in Toronto several years ago. Thomas has continued to produce challenging and inimitable electronic music and has now published his first book, Micro Bionic, on radical sound art.

We are very proud to offer copies of  TBWB’s brilliant Progressive Lycanthropy cassette and accompanying essay A Weapon For The Wolf Age which was released on the estimable Mirror Tapes label in November 2010 and is sold out almost everywhere. We also have the pleasure of stocking his very cool limited edition Cymatic T-shirts which are based on Hans Jenny’s experiments for sculpting matter with tone generators. Get ‘em while you can!

Culling from several of these releases between 2006 and 2010, all […]

    Named after the Brian De Palma film about the intimacy and invasive nature of sound recording (in his case a metaphor for filmmaking), this EP finds Toronto’s VOWLS eavesdropping on Pop music. The a-side Burlap swaggers around a drum machine beat that sounds like a New Order 45 played at 33rpm, with thick psychedelic layers […]

  • VOWLS Plays Monterey Pop (Remastered)
    March 25, 2011 | 11:27 am

      About the Film Inspired by Ron Hardy’s disco re-edits, Michael Marranda’s revised literary texts and Richard Prince’s appropriated photographs, this video is composed entirely from footage taken from D.A. Pennebaker’s documentary on the 1967 Monterey Pop music festival. Instead of using the iconic footage of the performances, VOWLS chose to focus on the audience, […]
