New Otto Von Schirach

How about some free Mp3 action?



In preparation for the incredible new Otto von Schirach album "Oozing Bass Spasms" Cock Rock Disco brings you it's first Mp3 only release on Tuesday, July 1st in partnership with BEATPORT!

Dance Like A Hoe

Otto's title cut comes straight from the humid dance floors of Miami. It's dirty bass and lyrics would definitely get approval from Dj Assault and Rob Gee alike. Cock Rock Disco's first released artist and long-time collaborator Duran Duran Duran continues turns the track into an electro-trance banger, perfect for late summer nights and stadiums alike. Dj Donna Summer cleans it all up at the end with his "Gelatin Fixation" remix, giving the sort of dubstep sounding original track a cleaned up bass-house vibe.

About Otto:
Otto Von Schirach (half Cuban / half German) was born in 1978 in the ghetto in Miami. In 1995 he bought his first drum machine from a crack-head just 2 blocks from his mom's house, and in 1998 Otto released his first demo, which got him signed to a 4 album deal with Schematic Records. In 2003 Otto worked on the Skinny Puppy album "The Greater Wrong of the Right" and then tour with them now 3 times. In 2004 Miss Kitten had Otto remix her "Professional Distortion" track for Nova Mute UK. Otto's last album, "Maxipad Detention", was released by Mike Patton's Ipecac Recordings in 2006 to vast critical and fan accolades world-wide. Otto is currently touring in Europe with Einst├╝rzende Neubauten (May), in the USA with Venetian Snares (June), and will be back for a massive tour in collaboration with porn-rap legend Blowfly (August-Sept).

I really need to say something about this, but I don't have the time to put it into words at the minute.

Some of you may have heard that Stan Winston died on sunday.



This was a really big blow to me. When I heard about it my stomach sank, and I immediately got sick. For those of you who don't know he was a part of the old guard in special effects makeup. The name may not be familiar, but the impressive list of movies (Aliens, Predator Jurassic park The Terminator...) is going to resonate withy any film fan.

It has been a few years since I left the film industry for personal reasons. I am starting to question that decision. I just realized how few people out there doing that kind of art, and I may have been kidding myself that this was not a part of me....

WAAAAAY behind

Yes. I know. I suck.

All of this stuff happens in the music world that I love and like a greedy fat kid at candystore* I kept it all to myself.

A few quick rundowns:



Autechre released an exclusive digital album with even more mixes from the VERY UNDERRATED Quaristice the first week of May. It was Autechre quality so you are either going to love it or hate it (I am in the former group) If that sort of thing strikes your fancy head on over to bleep or iTunes and download it.

Speaking of online digital exclusives...

We finally get to say hello to some horses that had been gone for FAR too long. William Garvey ( who's name may not be familliar to you...yet) wrote a little song in the very late 80's that is probably very familliar to ANYBODY who has ever seen the Silence of the Lambs

Yes. THAT SONG. Goodbye Horses (which up until now had only been available on the VERY out of print Married to the Mob soundtrack or in an edited version on the Clerks 2 soundtrack) has been re-released as an iTunes exclusive EP with 3 new mixes and just sounds fan-friggin-tastic.

Buy it. If you are going to own one song that was used as the background to a creepy penis tuck dance THIS should be it!! Plus, the song has always been one of my favorites. While you are at it check out the the Q Lazzarus Myspace page and leave her a comment to tell her just how much you LOVE the song :)



So, last year Trent Reznor went out of his friggin way to prove that he is not a douche. It worked. he is totally awesome. Well, as if he couldn't become more awesome he sent out a message to his fans:

as a thank you to our fans for your continued support, we are giving away the new nine inch nails album one hundred percent free, exclusively via nin.com.

That's right kids. FREE. Want a copy? Head on over here

He also released an exclusive tour EP with songs from the bands that he is touring with. Also available online and FREE.

My favorite movie of last year is finally available on DVD stateside.
Control (which unless you have been living under a rock you already know) is the biography of Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis. It's not to be missed by JD fans or film lovers. It's spectacular. i've literally seen it more than a dozen times ALREADY.

And finally (though good gawd there is so much music I missed out on!!) the whole reason I was making this post in the first place. Two great tastes are about to taste great together. I want to leave you with this.

RADIOHEAD COVERING PORTISHEAD

SWOON.

(as a note. I don't care what anybody thinks. The new Portishead record is just great and gets better witH EVERY listen)

GAH! There is so much more I want to talk about but for today this is enough. I am going to do my best to keep up a bit more, but you know... life...

Anyhow. Keep listening. :)



*I was totally that fat kid.
