Unfit Structures LP Vampire Belt  - Unfit Structures (Hermit Hut, 2015) LP  ---->  $18

"Formed in 2002 in Western Massachusetts, Vampire Belt is Bill Nace (Body / Head, x.o.4, Ceylon Mange) on guitar and electronics and Chris Corsano on drums (and occasionally electronics and/or bass). Early on, they self-released a couple of ultra-limited CDRs of lo-fi blow-outs, something like a mangled car wreck at the intersection of hardcore and free jazz. Tours followed and then, in the early / mid ’00s, Nace and Corsano partially phased out of Vampire Belt duo-mode in favor of collaborations with people like Jessica Rylan, Paul Flaherty, Steve Baczkowski, Okkyung Lee, Greg Kelley, Mats Gustafsson, Thurston Moore, Dredd Foole and Bill Orcutt. But in 2014 they made good on a nine year-old promise to Ben “Six Organs of Admittance” Chasny to record a Vampire Belt album for his label. Unfit Structures, Vampire Belt’s first proper LP, comes via Chasny’s Hermit Hut label and it’s not such a far cry from their obliterating early CDRs: high-energy improvised outbursts with spontaneously structured forms imploding just as soon as they begin to solidify."

This was/is a label I intermittently operate/d. More or less retired in 1998 after burn-out from a lengthy pressing debacle (the original artwork of the first version of the Diadal etched disc was thrown out by the pressing plant), the hot cars name was hastily dusted off six years later for the first Vampire Belt CDR. Since then, it's mostly been a vanity-press, except for in 2013, when Byron Coley graced the label with his spoken word album, Dating Tips for Touring Bands.

Fake Hand/Ayler's Angels LP Fake Hand/Ayler's Angels - Frozen Hamer/Ancient Axe (hot cars warp records, 1997) LP  ---->  $10

Fake Hand were a no wavish trio who briefly ruled over the Western Massachusetts landscape around 1996. Emily (bass) would go on to be in Wikkid, Touchdown, Skint, etc. Ayler's Angels were Matt and Brain from The Fake Hand on sax and drums playing in a more post-Ornette Coleman mode. They'd later become Army of Ghosts and, after that, A.R.E. Weapons. Released in 1997 in an edition of 500. Corsano appears on one live track on the Ayler's Angels side.

13 Gauge/Klatzker-Corsano Duo/Dieter Henkel - 3...2...1...zero (hot cars warp records, 1997) LP  ---->  $10

1997 release, edition of 500. Corsano's first album, more or less. "13 Gauge [Corsano, Aaron Mullan (later of Tall Firs) and George Moore (later of anexplodingstar & Chessie)] dedicate a side of the LP to alto legend Marion Brown and give their rendition of a post-core, Chick Corea-less Afternoon of a Georgia Faun. Their third and final piece is 'Montana Fix', a very loose tribute to mushroom legend John Cage. The Klatzker-Corsano duo (cello and drums, respectively) follow w/ a slightly more melodic, but no less frazzled approach. 13 Gauge-ist Dieter Henkel abandons his main instrument (drums) to jam guitar, trumpet, and twiddled knobs into the works, bringing things to a screeching halt." Individually made covers using either recycled LP jackets or cereal boxes or whatever else would house a record. 
Phil X. Milstein-Thurston Moore Songs We Taught The Lord LP Phil X. Milstein-Thurston Moore - Songs We Taught The Lord Vol. 2 (hot cars warp records, 1997) LP  ---->  $30

Recorded live at the Middle East, Cambridge, MA on December 12, 1996. Thurston Moore (guitar) and Phil Milstein (guitar, tape, saw). Released in 1997 in an edition of 500 with hand-pasted sleeves.
Diadal 2LP Diadal - s/t  (hot cars warp records, 1998) 2LP  ---->  $70 (stickered) / $50 (unstickered)

Released in 1998. Visual artists/musicians Rita Ackermann & Jutta Koether with three members of the No Neck Blues Band on 2 tracks. One LP is all music (and what music it is!), the other is etched  (one by Rita Ackermann, the other by Jutta Koether). Most of the covers were hand-stickered with neon dolphins and the like, though there are some that didn't get "the treatment." Save yourself $20 for the unstickered version. For those who care, it's not silk-screened (as is suggested elsewhere); it's a pantone color (vs. the more common and, unbeknownst to stupid me at the time, cheaper CMYK) print. Pre-Angelblood, pre-Electrophillia.
Byron Coley LP Byron Coley - Dating Tips for Touring Bands (hot cars warp records, 2013) LP ----> $24 (last remaining copies)

Silkscreened cover with artwork by Savage Pencil. "The opening side of the album flows seamlessly through 14 highly digestible tales from the rich and greasy American cultural sub-underground, that spiny and ragged mega-fuckin-saurus he rode as well as anyone for the past few decades....Side B is an 18 minute excerpt from Coley’s new book Dominoes titled, "The Closer." And if you never possessed the fine art of differentiating skunky beer from Miami turtle water and other less-appealing beverages, this is the definitive owner’s manual. At one of his workshops on improvisational drinking not too long ago, where only a bowl of scotch and ice separated us, I was reminded once more that Byron was a man of principle and he had a huge heart. And you can detect that warmth in spades on this album from his eloquent remembrances of Captain Beefheart and Jack Rose." - Alan Bishop

"Icepick is the trio of Nate Wooley (trumpet), Ingebrigt Haker-Flaten (double bass) & Chris Corsano (drums). “Amaranth,” the group’s first studio recording, was tracked in a single day in Austin, TX by Ian Rundell (of Ghetto Ghouls), and finds the trio building upon their debut cassette, “Hexane” from 2014. Icepick sculpt pointed & succinct songs out of classic free jazz improvisations.  Wooley, Haker-Flaten & Corsano are all at the top of their game here, sounding incredibly comfortable yet inspired in this trio setting. Many who found the debut release a promising start for this group will not be disappointed with the stronger fidelity and stronger connection between these three players." First edition of 300 LP’s with digital download.

Unnatural VCO LP Ghédalia Tazartès-Chris Corsano-Dennis Tyfus - Vooruit 17.05.2015 (Ultra Eczema, 2016) LP ----> $30

Live recording from Gent, Belgium. "Four turbulent parts blended across two sides. It is sometimes hard to hear who’s doing what here: vocals and strings, tapes, bells and percussion become an oddball of dust, blown into the narrow streets of improv; none of the ‘free music solo rules’ are obeyed here. Somebody else, living in that same street as it were, mentioned that ”it sounds like a whole village of monks turning against buddhism, trading smiles for grunts”. Ghédalia Tazartès (master of dramatic vocals that travel from Tibet to John Lydon), Chris Corsano (still
the last drummer on earth), and Dennis Tyfus (trying hard to listen, for once) have played together three times and for as long as it will remain a challenge to properly record together, this LP is exactly what it should be."
Limited to 300 copies. Offset printed sleeve with collage art by DT, plus two inserts with liner notes by Byron Coley.

Says Tiny Mix Tapes: "There really isn’t any fair comparison of this material to the previous version. Rather, two reiterations on disc of this piece make for valuable listening and show that “noise,” in the purview of three multi-talented musician-composers, can make for an extremely rewarding experience."
