Otto Von Schirach "Oozing Bass Spasms" released today

Available NOW at: iTunes, Beatport (front page!), Amazon, Warpmart, Emusic and most other online retailers and in physical form in many stores too!!!

The sado-booty ring-master is back again. That's right, Cock Rock Disco is proud to present the new full length album by Otto Von Schirach: "Oozing Bass Spasms". With enough porn and horror samples to satiate the most demented programmer, and enough juicy bass to placate the most voracious bass-head, Oozing Bass Spasms is a masterwork by one of the world's most original artists.

By far his most approachable and even refined album, it's still pretty fucking crazy in a way that only Otto von Schirach can provide. This time the overall feeling of the album is more dance sounding; elements of Booty, Electro, Breakcore, and Rave music all find a place in his bizarre universe. From the first track "Subatomic Disco Divas" to the last "Satanic Unicorn Orgy", we are spoon-fed outstanding beats of all types, fractured and welded into ghettoized forms never seen. "Magnetic Rave Headache" will probably be one of the hardest breakcore tracks you've ever heard, and then the next song, "GELATIN FIXATION" is built around a dubstep bassline that would make Scorn wet himself. His ballad "Her Blood Is Like Poison" gets the ladies horny and the boys start the mosh-pit during "DJ Hepatitis Tofuburger". But the party gets rowdy with his collaboration with Liquido -"Romance in the Club"- a electro-club banger like we rarely get anymore- it's positively soaked in party.

News Story about Ian Curtis's Stolen headstone

As a follow up to yesterdays post about the headstone here is the news report from Macclesfield.

I would like to note again how disgusted I am by this.

Ian Curtis's headstone stolen.

What the fuck.


According to this article at the BBC site
the headstonewas taken sometime between Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning.

I don't think I have to remotely go into how fucking disrespectable (and for that matter deplorable) of an act this was. It doesn't make you the world's biggest Joy Division fan to have stolen this. It makes you the world's biggest asshole.

Lets hope the person will feel guilty and return it. :/

aaaand in the category of how the %$#! did I miss this...

Chris Cunningham to produce the Horrors new album.

According to this blurb from MARCH.

According to Faris Rotter "He won't approach things in the way that so many people will. He's really into the music we like: y'know - My Bloody Valentine, Dead Can Dance and Squarepusher and I think he's gonna bring something to the new album that no one else will."

Name checking both MBV and Squarepusher in the same sentence? In regards to the new album?

I am so excited I could pee.

You may remember that Cunningham directed the Horrors first video Sheena is a Parasite back in 2006.

Seriously, this sounds awesome!
