HOUSE OF LOW CULTURE housing tracts cdr pt 2

i'm back home - at least for a few days.
ISIS east coast shows were great - thanks to all attendees and of course the other bands we had the pleasure of sharing the stage with: oxbow, 27, clouds. west coast here we come....

in the meantime i'll try to get up a couple more posts. as i mentioned a few posts back, i have some pictures and track listing info here for a limited house of low culture cdr i produced last year in order to coincide with a few live shows i did under that moniker. the disc contained mostly previously released material from compilations and such, as well as a few unreleased bits n pieces. i would like to release some of these tracks again elsewhere as most of them haven't circulated much, and i quite like them and wish to spread them a bit further, but we shall see. for now they exist on the compilations listed below as well as on this cdr, of which i believe there were 30 or so copies made.

here's the track listing:

1. intercontinental sound drift
originally appeared on the buildings transmissions "220 v remix" compilation (curios 2002)

2. showtime at the apollo
originally appeared on the "you've got your orders" compilation (chrome peeler 2003)

3. bastard remix treatment
originally appeared on "the bastard remix" compilation ( curious 2003)

4. untitled (for 4 guitars)
previously unreleased. originally intended for release as the a side for a 7" on hydra head.

5. merzbow - house of low culture remix.
previously unreleased. merzbow remixing HOLC.

6. advancing hordes (merzbow "frog" remix)
HOLC remixing merzbow. originally appeared on the "frog - remixed and revisited" compilation (misanthropic agenda 2001)

7. edward
originally appeared on the "funeral songs" compilation (relapse/crowd control 2000)

8. a.t. drone home
originally appeared on the "record of shadows infinite" compilation (crucial blast 2002)

all for now.
more soon.
time for a slideshow....

I really like the warm green design, and those 'strand' drawings seem to be popping up quite a bit, and I love the look of them! Pelican's Pink Mammoth especially, that came out really great.

Keep us posted on the possible (re)release of these songs!

These are some awesome designs. I really like the yellow one, but the gray one is cool as well. What is the significance of the leaf though?

You guys should play C.F.T. in San Francisco, I would be so stoked.

i was just wondering what kind of gear you use to create the HOLC recordings. is it primarily guitar based, or are the majority of the sounds generated by computer?

sorry for the nerdy question

Hello Aaron. First, I would like to greet you. You have been doing an amazing job with your music. I really enjoy ISIS and some Hydra Head's bands. I did not know this blog, but know I am very happy for knowing it. Your artwork is also very interesting. Well, that is all. Greetings from Brazil.

Hi Aaron! Really love your designs. My cdcollection is full of your works! I'm a boy from Belgium and I love to draw and design myself. If you're interested, check: Thanks man! Bent (thieves on moskou)

Hello AT,
Big fan of both Isis, OMG, & HOLC. I would love to get this Housing Tracts CD but it's not available anywhere. Maybe you can put it on iTunes?
I also think that HOLC should remix an Isis song, much like all those cool artists did on the "Oceanic Remixes 2CD" Maybe on a possible "In The Absence Of Truth Remixes CD"
Just an idea.
Rock On.
