I figured I'd take a minute to tell you that I'm not floating tits up in some backwater ditch, fly larvae corkscrewing through my softening flesh. Nope, I'm sluggishly and despondently working on "Trinity", the third album by Sons of Perdition.
I think I've got most of the music pegged and have demo versions of almost everything recorded. I just need to commit to final versions. The lyrics are taking a bit more time. An insane amount of planning went into this one, since it follows a real path in a real time. I didn't want to muck anything up with bad geography.
I'll likely give the demos away on this site for folks that buy the album directly from me. Or you can just bootleg 'em. Of course, we'll have to burn that bridge when we come to it.
That's all for now, so here's the video that Bo Mathorne (director of The Backwater Gospel) made for my song, "Psalm of Withering". Even if you've seen it before, you should have another look at it.
That bone that will never set,

Sorry it's been awhile. I've been toiling away under a rotting log, glomming together the next Sons of Perdition album. It's really coming along, albeit at the usual, painfully slow pace.
If you're interested in hearing my progress, I'll be playing a few songs from it on the Smooth and Demented Show on October 25. If you're in Austin, you can tune in and listen (if you happen to know whatever the hell the station is - my memory is shot) or at the previous link, from 9:00PM to 11:00PM. For everyone else, I'll be posting the download link on this site afterwards. It will also be downloadable at Evil On My Mind . I see no sense in depriving my remote friends of the misery.
It's just going to be me (as usual), so it's going to be stripped down and bordering on the unlistenable.
Like a waterlogged book in the bottom of a ditch,

I'm taking on the role of guest DJ tonight on Kaos Radio Austin. The Erroneous O' Shaughnessy Experience has graciously invited me to pick out a couple of hours of music and presumably bullshit my way through it. I'll be playing bands like Swans, The Birthday Party, Einsturzende Neubauten, Burzum, Whitehouse, etc. Glum times will be had by all.
You don't have to be an Austinite to listen. Tune in at www.kaosradioaustin.org (scroll down to "The Erroneous O' Shaughnessy Experience"). Alternately, you can link directly to the live stream at one of the following links (please see below for the time):
My set starts tonight, August 12, at 9:00PM Central. Be there or miss out and subsequently hang your head in shame.
UPDATE: You can now download the set here .

Hey there, friends and strangers!
Since I'm sure you've all borne witness to the depraved beauty of "The Backwater Gospel" by now, I figured I'd give you a little bonus. I'm offering up the soundtrack to that short film for free download. You just have to create an account on www.sonsofperdition.com, and that ain't too hard to do. Once you log in, it will waiting for you like an ashamed child on the My Account page.
And if you don't want to create an account because you're off the grid or something, then Hell, just bootleg it. I don't care if people trade this release in the least, so long as nobody makes any money off it. Consider it a public service, doled out on an unsuspecting populace like screams from a slaughterhouse.
Along with the songs used in the film, I've included some of my malformed progeny that were hidden away from the release. They didn't quite make the cut in some form or fashion and were left to wither in the detritus pile of dead dreams and leprous thoughts... until now.
Let me know what you think about this little endeavor. And in case you're one of the two or three fortunate souls who has managed to avoid it thus far, scroll down to watch "The Backwater Gospel" by clicking on the poster below. It was directed by my good pal Bo Mathorne and is quite the work of art. Tear off those eyelids and prepare to suffer, friend.
You've got a friend in Jesus and that friend is...
