Raised by Seuss on vinyl! [skate soundtrack related]

From what I can piece together Raised by Seuss was a group from San Jose who released one cassette EP and then promptly vanished forever. Of interesting note, is that most of the EP was used for background music on the skate video 411 VM #3, released in 1993. Luckily for all of us, Age of New Medina Music plans to release the whole thing on vinyl!

Age says:
These are cats that I grew up with and this, got some fame from 411VM® (A skateboarding Video Magazine). It was used during the “Metrospective” segment For San Jose, Scott Johnston's Part and other various segments. As far as I know, there is one other person (besides myself) that has a master copy of this and they used to or still work to at 411VM® (you need to stop bootlegging this).The Original DAT was destroyed because they could not afford to pay off the studio time and was never released to them (with the exception when I had it in my hands to turn into the video suite) Which, I was lucky enough to record back in '93. They had one demo before this (89-90) which was ok and had this dude Steve and after this EP, Troy (True One) did one more song(that I remember) and never recorded anything else (at least that I know of).He was or still is playing guitar & singing in a hardcore punk group(last time I saw him '02).So, the track I picked is called "Face The Music".

About the vinyl:

Raised By Suess:S/T LP (limited vinyl release)
Some of you might remember it from my "ISH" review and also, was in the 411VM years ago (San Jose Metrospective). Was and is still considered, highly sought after material. Since I have the only master and they are the homies, we decided it was about time to give this a proper release with not only both first demos, but a couple of nice bonus tracks you most def, do not want to pass up on. We are only doing a small limited run on vinyl(300 to 500 max) and there will be no digital release of it.

Original post about the vinyl release here.

Depth Affect feat Riddlore - Else's Vision

Ridd never disappoints..

Monday, April 19, 2010 pseudozero's psych podcast

First heard about this new Psych Mix project via a tweet from super artist Lazarus Pit. He does all of the art for Vulgar and some of the brilliant Oooh That's Heavy pic discs. I think it is Laz Pit, pseudozero (from vulgar), and several others.

Six Ton Armor is a platform meant to offer regular psych music podcasts
from various DJs/producers.
By "psych" we mean all music with a psychedelic aspect to it, could be rare 60es / 70es garage records, rare turkish soundtrack, brit Invasion stuff, somalian psych funk, or, well, more recent materials like Broadcast... (anyway, you get it).
We want selectors to show up the amazing/weird pieces of their collection, not the usual boring 3/4 wonky novelties.
We want the other stuff, we want to be suprise! Just like you do when you're looking
for new music.
Don't forget to check out the selector's own pages too, they're mostly accomplished musicians with great music of their own as well.

By clicking once on each Psychcast the mix will start as a stream. You can pause by clicking again. You can't navigate through the mix though.
But! You can download the mixes in MP3 by clicking on the right link and then navigate
as freely as you want.

Rimrimrim is the visual / design guru, while Black Olsun is the almighty curator.
You can hit us at blackolsun[at]gmail[dot]com if you feel like.

Eventually we're supposed to turn into a label with factory pressed stuff,
so be on the look out
