Black Tape For A Blue Girl: The Cleft Serpent

This Friday the new album will be available around the world on Spotify, youTube, Pandora, iTunes and everywhere you like to stream / download music. I’m shipping the CD, MiniDisc, Cassette & Shirt from the crypt out here in Portland Oregon. Signed copies* are available directly from me at our Bandcamp Page. LPs are on preOrder and I hope to ship December-ish. In Europe, save on postage by ordering the CDs from Projekt’s European Webstore. The CD is at Amazon as well.


Two of our classic CDs are now on sale for $8; the downloads are name-your-price! 1987’s Mesmerized by the sirens and 2004s Halo Star. If you missed out on these releases back in the day — or have the CD packed away in a box somewhere from that move two apartments ago — simplify your life with a new free download.


My interview is up at Post-Punk. I talk about The Cleft Serpent album, working with Jon and Henrik in the new band, and a bit about what’s coming up at Projekt. I’m also interviewed in the current issue of Germany’s Orkus (2021 #10 with Kat Von D on the cover), and one coming in the next issue of Germany’s Sonic Seducer.


When I was mixing the companion album, I thought the track “To touch the milky way (2021 version instrumental mix)” had the perfect feeling for the plague scene from Werner Herzog’s 1979 “Nosferatu the Vampyre.” I tried them out together, and wow it works nicely! Watch it at https://youtu.be/mVIadfornjM (I have to point out, for bonus points, that it looks like the word “Vlad” is there in the url!)

* Sorry, no signature on the cassette and MiniDisc. They are too petite to sign.
