Please note, the LP pre-order is limited to 100 copies of the translucent vinyl (regular black vinyl version will be available as of May 8). Sample an excerpt of the opening track here:

One day of rest to recuperate from tour…brewed some Bis Auf’s Messer coffee, put on Tago Mago, settling down to work on putting LPs together! All pre-orders will ship this week, once we’ve numbered and signed all the green copies. The regular black vinyl edition, cds, and digital will be available to order at the end of the week. For North Americans who want the cd and want to save on overseas shipping, it will be available from the Badabing Records mailorder shop.
For those of you in Berlin, we’re playing a release party at West Germany with Bee And Flower on Saturday, October 27, with special guest David Dunnett on drums:

I have a new a solo release, The Spectrum of Distraction, coming out January 17, 2012 with Robotic Empire. This will be a 2CD album, containing 96 tracks edited and designed in such a way as to be played on random, and features contributions from 18 different drummers:
Mac McNeily (The Jesus Lizard), Ted Parsons (Swans, Godflesh, Jesu, Prong, & many others), David Dunnett (Ca Va Mal), Brandon Valdivia (Picastro), Richard Baker (ARC), Victor Cirone, Jakob Thiesen (Whisper Room, Nadja), Thor Harris (The Angels of Light, Shearwater, Swans), Geoff Summers (Batillus), Alessandro Curvaia (Shora), Simon Scott (Slowdive), Steven Hess (Locrian, Panamerican), Bruno Dorella (OvO), H. Walker (Kerretta), Andrew Crawshaw, Kevin Micka (Animal Hospital), Phil Petrocelli (Jesu, Great Falls, Grey Machine), & myself.
The album is available for pre-order from Robotic Empire here. The 2CD also comes with a download card for the complete, unedited sessions that made up this album — almost 6 hours of music! You can stream the ‘first’ track from the album, “At War With The Evil Power Master” (drums by Phil Petrocelli), here on my Bandcamp page:
(Obviously, these tracks should flow seamlessly together, which they don’t in the stream, but hopefully it’ll give you an idea what to expect)

We’ve started a mailing list (because I’m sure you don’t get enough email in your lives) to keep people updated of our activities etc. Of course if you’re reading this, you might have already subscribed to this blog, which might make signing up for a mailing list redundant..but anyway, should you wish to subscribe, here is the link.
As incentive, here’s a free downloadable 2-track EP of techno/electronica-ish music (living in Berlin is rubbing off):
