Stop fronting, and put FoodForAnimal’s “BELLY” on your top-ten list for 2008!

We’re home from Japan.
It was definitely a good first trip for FoodForAnimals. We’ll be back for sure.
We played with so many good bands (like four or five a night), so many different styles: musicians from the US and EU are going to have to step it up.
Just a few of our favorites:

Origami – Spiritual sing-rap of a distinctively Japanese flavor
Conga Fury – Relentless crusty HC/Punk/D-Beat
Space Grinder – Self-destructive powernoise freakout
Boss of Naked – Spacey MPC trip-hop; love it because its so ugly.

Also shout-out to Japanese Noise Project: the (soon to be) definitive documentary on Japanoise.


Folk hero Dock Ellis has died.


And a little present for everyone from Maximillion Dunbar (AKA FoodForAnimal’s Vulture V) and his FutureTimes label. A warm funky mix for cold days.

2. Autechre – Goz Quarter

From Japan…


November 22, 2008

We’re going to Japan!
real boosted…

We’re partially funding our trip through selling these limited tour/Japan CDRs, so if you want one (USA), shoot us an email.

Worship East mp3
This track will definitely be on it. Its heavy, minimal, ancient-temple, almost-live, Japan-Gamelan-something. Look at this image (that I scanned out of a NationalGeographic magazine about Laos) and you’ll understand what I mean…
Ritual Mass
Yeah, the song is just as good as the picture…
