been a long time…

Posted in Gozer, News, Random Gibberish, The Paper Street Soap Co. on February 3, 2012 by theoppositionmachine

so…yeah…2011 has come and gone and Paper Street is still not released. No one is more pissed about that than me. The short story is i pulled a type 2 sprain on my ankle during training for my first half marathon which basically knocked me out that particular event which led to a mini-depression and a general lack of desire to do anything. Also, the plans i had for executing the paper street physical release were pretty much reduced to ash by logistical issues. Starting this week, I am reworking the art to something more conventional and this thing WILL be released this year, even if i have to build a time machine to go back in time to do it. Gozer is already off to an interesting start. Band out of Indonesia wants to do a split and Operation Grindcore Vol. 2 will be released on Grindcore Karaoke. so yes on that. Wrist Cut Rally is currently on hold as Cory has 37 other projects going right now.  I believe that is all for now. I will try to update this more often. Of yer hurting for my wordbombs I have been occasionally contributing to the Operation Grindcore blog, so keep an eye on that. Later. -Marc


too fast for blog

wow…i feel like shit happens so fast anymore and i don’t get a chance to update this blog properly. big news right now is ANOTHER FUCKING COMP FOR GOZER! jesus christ those guys are comp sluts. this one will be via Torn Flesh Records, a net label like us except they actually release peoples shit where as I i am very selfish and just focus on my garbage. It will actually be live in a few hours so keep checking. Speaking of that, Torn Flesh is going to digitally reissue Grind Theft Auto, Gozer’s split with Kindergarten Hazing Ritual. This will feature BOTH halves of the split and a reworked digital booklet that will only be available at the Torn Flesh download. This represents the first time someone that isn’t us is promoting an album of ours and i want to thank them for that sincerely! Very cool indeed. More Gozer news. I am doing a limited edition discography CD that will feature every song we have ever done including the two songs from the 37564 comp. These will be offered for free to anyone serving in the miltary overseas, so if yer interested, hit us up. We will also be selling a few of these at the Operation Grindcore distro. Paper Street is slowly rolling forward. The new CD is streaming up at the bandcamp site so go check that out. I was planning on starting the screen printing process last weekend but i severely sprained my foot on a run about a week ago which means standing and screen printing for an extended period of time is right out the window. I am hoping to get started on that this weekend tho as things look to be healing up pretty quickly. Umm..shit…i THINK thats it? fuck…I will try to update more often. peace. -marc

news from the front

Posted in Gozer, News, Releases, The Paper Street Soap Co. on July 6, 2011 by theoppositionmachine

wow. strangely enough, quite a bit has happened since i last updated. One. Gozer will be on TWO more comps this year. That is fucking ridiculous. First one will be for International Shart Records, a net label ran by Justin Barger of Arseterror infamy. That should be dropping sooner rather than later. Stay tuned for details. The second one is Operation Grindcore Vol. 2. Andrew done lost his damn mind and is putting out another comp. Click on the previous link to get the full rundown. This is going to be a two disc affair released sometime this fall. Mike and I are scheduling time to record new songs for this. Apparently the key to getting gozer to record more often is giving us compilation opportunities. In Paper Street news, That thing is pretty much done except for printing. I expect to be uploading that to the bandcamp site in the coming weeks. Still need to hammer out a shirt idea. Oh…yeah..i dont think i mentioned it on here but anyone who preorders the CD will get a shirt and a ton of old PSSC merch. Everything must go indeed. aight, brain is out of steam tonight. later.-marc

I am on twitter now. @distrustoppose. woot? Dont feel like writing much right now. peace.-marc

re-evaluating goals

Posted in Gozer, News, Releases, The Paper Street Soap Co. with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 7, 2010 by theoppositionmachine

Well, if i am going to be completely honest here, it looks like both the paper street and gozer releases probably are not going to happen until sometime next year. sucks, but there is just too much personal crap going on to squeeze it in before the end of 2010. That being said, I do think gozer will probably be recording before years end, as we are slated to appear on the upcoming 37564 compilation. It is only going to be one or two songs but new gozer material is always good. And that label is good people so we are happy to be associated with this release. In other news, we are offcially on go here to check that out and add gozer to yer library and leave us a shout and whatever the hell else you do on that site. If yer not hip to, fix that shit now. it is kinda like pandora if pandora paid any respect to actual underground metal. OK, I think that is it for now. adios.-Marc

post vacation update

As the title states, I have returned. France was amazing and I have been posting pictures fron the trip left and right on my facebook page. utterly mindblowing. we are already looking into a return trip. in respects to musical happenings. I have just finished the two WCR tracks cory sent me over the summer. I am beyond excited to have that wrapped up. They sound pretty good too. This project is shaping up to be very Godflesh-like, which is ok by me. The next big project i think will be putting the Paper Street stuff to rest. The way things are going tho, that will probably not happen until next year. $$$ is scarce right now. In Gozer related news, we will be recording two barnd new songs for the upcoming 37564 compilation. For those of you that don’t know, 37564 a net label run by my man cory from Kindergarten Hazing Ritual. Every band on the label is his and all of them are worth your time, so head here to check it out. The Gozer full length is still awaiting samples. Mike is handling that but he is in Hawaii right now doing that honeymoon thing. Congrats to him on that as he and his wife are awesome people. That will probably be some time next year as well. There might be some massive changes coming soon. I don’t really want to say more than that because I am not sure how certain things will pan out. But trsut me. This could be huge if it DOES fall into place. That is all. -Marc

Pre-vacation update

Posted in Gozer, News, Releases, The Paper Street Soap Co., Wrist Cut Rally with tags , , , , on September 7, 2010 by theoppositionmachine

Ok, im going to Paris for two weeks, so I am dropping a quick upate.  The Gozer shirts were a surprsing success and thanks to everyone who participated. Head over to the Gozer facebook profile to see everything. Note I said, FACEBOOK profile. When I return, I am deactivating all the myspace profiles. That place is deader than history and I do not have the time to be checking multiple profiles. Next project is the physical release of the final Paper Street CD. I’ve got something special planned for this and plan to start working on that right after I get back. The Gozer album will be dealt with after the Paper Street project. I know I said summer releases for both of these but…well…screw you. The new project has about 4 to 5 songs sketched out and we hope to start hammering those into final songs very shortly. We also lost a vocalist and still need a drumer. Mike and I are going back to handling screaming duties unless someone really wants to step up and take care of that for us. Interested drummers, get in touch. I would also like to take a moment and personally apologize to Cory for sleeping for so long on the last two WCR tracks he sent me. I plan to deal with those upon my return. I think that is all for now. Thanks for reading.
