Good evening. Well, I say, “good evening” without knowing, I can only assume it is evening and the sun you detest has slunk behind the horizon, wherever it is that you will be listening to this vial calamity that was birthed by ghouls with their noses to the grind stone and their unsound minds in the gutter. It disgusts me to imagine the loathsomeness that you monsters engage in while even deliberating to “play” this record. How you all undulate in your blood-drenched rags and your hideous and filthy, stinking naked bodies. Or cavorting in stupid store bought costumes, ill fitting. Cheap. Shitty. You, and those miscreants you call friends, gobbling up rotted, slimy meat and guzzling blood, or bile or vomit. Gathered in ridiculous numbers for the lavish party when your guts become engorged with foul poisons that burn and sizzle inside you. This is debauchery... This is your most treasured behavior. You avoid sanity at all cost. Prancing to this “music”. “Dance” to these tortured tones. If only I could encourage you to abort your plans of lending an ear to what is now only moments away... It’s your life.

Lo Comte Arnau (roughly translated to English) "Count Arnau, the soldier of Piedmont goes to battle "Count Arnau, at this hour you go away, Tell us, when will you return? - To Saint John I will return, And dead or alive, this I promise... The woman I love is in the monastery She will make me father of a beautiful child" But St. John's Day has just arrived Count Arnau has not yet returned From the window of the house, his mother saw him coming back on his horse "mother make me a bed because it's been too long since I slept. Make it high, make it down (give me a proper bed or give me a grave) But don't let my lover lie there." - Count Arnau, don't even think it! Would you leave a beautiful child? - Not for one child nor for two, I'll rise again. - (The wife speaks) What is that noise in the monastery? Could it be prayers for Count Arnau? The woman who has just given birth does not want to hear any more fateful prayers. Say, for the celebration of tomorrow Which dress should I wear? - The woman who has just given birth the black dress I must wear. - Why do you say such ominous words? What do your prayers say? - They say that the one who has just given birth must go to the cemetery". To the cemetery she went. To see Count Arnau buried. "Here is the key to my cell I will never go back. Holy land open up, I want to talk to my husband Holy land, if you remain closed, I will die with him."

Beyond repair Time in the lair Send up the flare There's a monster Stuck in the maze Frazzled and frozen Surplus of the tomb Stolen from the womb Picked out from the gloom between the hand and the face that's control They kept on Living They kept on living Marching for the open pit Skin drained of all the light Souls aflame Flying in the face Of birth and doom

about

Do you dare? Just imagine the existential dread and abject horror that will come bubbling to the surface when you flip out the lights and freak out your friends with this, the 150th release from SKiN GRAFT Records. Sporting FIFTEEN NEW and EXCLUSIVE songs sure to scare your guests stiff, “Sounds To Make You Shudder!” is a HALLOWEEN Long Player that plays fast and loose any time of the year!

DAVID YOW and YOWIE - The Spider’s Greeting
The Jesus Lizard’s David Yow is master of ceremonies and none other than St. Louis’ Yowie has got his back, laying down their first new music since the release of “Synchromysticism”.

USA NAILS - Horror Show

Formed through a mutual love of noise rock, punk and krautrock, USA Nails made their SKiN GRAFT debut earlier this year on the “Split” LP with Psychic Graveyard. For their return, they look no further than the world around us to pen “Horror Show”.

LOVELY LITTLE GIRLS - Procreation (Of The Wicked)
Chicago’s avant prog oddballs Lovely Little Girls are back with their reimagining of the Celtic Frost favorite, maintaining the song's malevolent mood while taking it places never heard before.

TERMS - Mouthful of Moss
Having served in acts such as Grand Ulena, Jitters and Yowie, Terms bring a wealth of experience and a heaping helping of the unexpected to the operating table. Their album “All Becomes Indistinct” will be released in 2023. This track is not on it.

TIJUANA HERCULES - Long Slide
“No crossing the River Styx” - Tijuana Hercules apply their hillbilly trance to an Ambrose Bierce tale… a psychedelic take on a murder victim who discovers the dismal neverafter. Headphonically conceived in the laboratories of Frogg Mountain Recording Studio.

PILI COïT - Lo Comte Arnau
On paper, Lyon’s Pili Coït sound simple enough: Jessica Martin Maresco (of Le Grand Sbam) on floor tom, oil can, synth, drum and vocals - plus Guilhem Meier (of Poil) on guitar and vocals. On record, Pili Coït come together - here for a haunting rendition of a traditional Occitan song. SKiN GRAFT will release their album “Love Everywhere” on vinyl in 2023.

PSYCHIC GRAVEYARD and JOHN DWYER - Is There A Hotline?
The Osees’ John Dwyer takes Psychic Graveyard’s raw, emotion filled mechanics and puts them through ringer, remixing the four piece into a squirming sickly electronic mess of delights.

JIM O’ROURKE - guising
Taking up from where Brise-Glace’s Camp SKiN GRAFT track “likeness” left off one-hundred catalog numbers ago, Jim returns with “guising”, where scary sounds are scarred, then sewn up again into something resembling itself.

CUNTROACHES – Borborygmus
Here is a first dose of the type of noise-wave, black metal bombast Berlin’s Cuntroaches will bring to the fore in 2023. Their full length is entering post-production. No one is ready.

STRANGULATED BEATOFFS - Happy Halloween
Now well into their fourth decade of existence, legendary SKiN GRAFT recording artists Strangulated Beatoffs (just barely) lift a finger to return with their first new recording in 10 years.

SHATTER ON IMPACT - Amar’s Volta
The new trio from Blake Fleming (formerly of Laddio Bolocko, Mars Volta and Dazzling Killmen) takes you rocketing through the eye of the cobra and beyond the final frontier to strange new worlds. Amar's Volta is slinky, seductive and raw.

BOBBY CONN - Don’t Be Afraid
A veteran of Chicago’s No Wave scene, Bobby Conn quickly developed a reputation for delivering messages of hope, politics, despair, revolution and bullshit in a quasi-falsetto, all the while decked to the nines in glitter, eyeliner and high heels. His third consecutive SKiN GRAFT compilation appearance.

The FLYING LUTTENBACHERS - Violence Labyrinth

No wave / punk jazz / brutal prog iconoclasts The Flying Luttenbachers’ founding member Weasel Walter takes listeners on a dizzying ride in all directions at once - and straight down where it counts.

UPRIGHT FORMS - They Kept On Living
Dragging behind ghosts of SKiN GRAFT’s Past (Dazzling Killmen, Colossamite and Xaddax) this carbon-based, three-headed organism raise a collective fist at the inevitable dark veil. The debut of Nick Sakes’ new band.

AZITA - Tss Tss
Former Scissor Girl and past, present and future Azita Youssefi surprises in the best of possible ways, wrapping up with a reflective synth n’ sax “party’s over” jam that will leave you grasping at straws and reaching for the stars.
