Dear Friends and Fomentors of adventurous music,
Finally, after 2 years on the air and over 100 broadcasts, the Sonar Map
radio show has a new website! Surf  for the complete
archived playlists of the program along with my writings on music, strange
items, and, as they used to say on TV in the 1970s, much, much more.

Also, I have released my first solo compact disc in 4 years!

N30: Live at the WTO Protest November 30, 1999 is a 78-minute compact disc
featuring three pieces: cocaine, Harbinger, and N30. cocaine is the first
in a series of aural safaris into the streets of Seattle. Armed with stereo
microphones and a small card inscribed "cocaine," folks read from the card
while I recorded the results. Harbinger overlays fast, shifting pulsations
irregular phrases. Imagine Philip Glass and Conlon Nancarrow as club DJs. 

N30 is my second aural safari. An orthophonic "you are there" recording,
N30 uses my front-line field recordings made at the WTO protest in Seattle
on November 30, 1999, and will immerse you in a vivid sonic maelstrom of
chants, drumming, and violence. The cd was funded in part by the King
County Arts Commission. 

N30 was pressed in a limited edition of 500. Regrettably, I am too busy
with composing music to pursue traditional avenues of distribution. The cd
is also available by mail order or on-line at .
Best wishes,

Info on E.C. / Randall Phillip cd 
After being turned away from more then one pressing plant due to the harsh content, and graphic artwork The Cd  will finally be made available. It contains material from the Eugenics Council's limited edition cdr "Genocide Now" along with all new material. Rosemary has recently been featured on the Susan Lawly Release "Extreme Music From Women" her Track Produced by William Bennet of Whitehouse. She has also been published in  "Apocalypse Culture" released through Feral House.Any one who is familiar with Dr. Randall Phillip's magazine "F*ck",  his Book "Extermination Zone", or His movie "Tape Terror" will enjoy his 
audio work. For those not familiar with Dr. Phillip, prepare yourself for one of the most brutal writer/artist of the century. 
Dr. Phillips  writing can also be found in "Answer Me 4". 

"Well, if you're a sucker for brutal, cynical and controversial projects, look no further: here the duo Eugenics Council teams up with the infamous 
  Randall Phillip, editor of the (euphemistically speaking) extreme fanzine Fuck“. What you get is a long ear-splitting and stomach-revolting bad trip 
                               through the destruction of almost every possible target of anti-PC hysteria" 

                                            --Eugenio Maggi from an Italian music mag 

"F*ck is a Tour de Force of Ugliness that tests the limits of the first amendment. Reading Fuck is like being gang raped. You are guaranteed to be 
offended & you'll probably want to put up money to have Mr. Phillips face bashed in." -- extracted from the philadelphia welcomat 

E.C. has recently finished up a small north east tour. Shows and recordings have frequently involved the use of welders,explosives,bent casio's,tasers,korg poly6,sig. generators, road kill, etc. Some pics can be found at the Menschenfeind webpage. 

Review of E.C./Lockweld colab. performance 
A chainsaw was wielded into the crowd, through wood, through a ladder, through beer cans, etc.... Karen screamed and jumped as if on Hello Kitty narcotics..... Dustin was busy catching things on fire, welding, and throwing motors into barrels.... This was controlled chaos, no, this was pure chaos and close to a riot. Fucking incredible, and the sound of it matched as the rumble of electronics, metal and chainsaw mixed into a cacophony of perverse modern technology that not only embraced the audience but made them a part (or nearly parts heh heh) of the show. This was the perfect finale for Finality and couldn't have been more explosive than this. It ended a little while after the set with explosives in the bathroom courtesy of Eugenics
