... thanks for everyone's patience during the move !!! while it did take about a week longer than scheduled to get even the most basic elements of mms up & running again (i.e. records back on the shelves [in order !!!] ; packing & shipping bench upright & operational) we can safely say that things are finally getting back to normal around here ...

... we're just about caught up with invoicing & shipping orders placed during our closure & we've started opening up the dozens of boxes of new titles that arrived in our absence, updating the site here to show all of the new arrival & restock activities over the past few weeks (scanner & stereo are still boxed up, so full workups are still pending) ...

... as a token of appreciation to everyone that helped us out by placing a "closeout" order in the days leading up to the move (and due to a number of requests for more time to properly investigate / strategize a more thorough sweep of the dwindling list of titles on offer) i've extended the exhaustive "closeoupacolypse" one final time until the end of the spring ; this should afford everyone the proper resources to make their final selections ...

hell hoarse

chuck bettis, raised in the fertile hardcore soil, nourished within baltimore's enigmatic avant garde gatherings, blossoming in ny's downtown musical tribe. past projects include metamatics, all scars, trance and the arcade. he has also appeared on recordings with ikue mori, nautical almanac, yellow swans, measles mumps rubella, toshio kajiwara, carlos giffoni. has played live with john zorn, fred frith, jamie saft and afrirampo to name a few. current projects include brown wing overdrive (electronic duo of bettis and derek morton), mudang rouge (quintet with jerry lim, evan rapport, josh blair), period (quintent with mike pride, charlie looker, darius jones), chatterblip (laptop & voice duo with dafna naphtali) and hell hoarse (duo with brendan murray).

brendan murray is a self-taught musician living in somerville, ma. murray began playing music as a rock drummer, but has been working as a solo electronic-music composer since 1999. early compositions were made using little more than phrase samplers, but has since added analog synths, digital software, and (most recently) guitar to his vocabulary. murray regards his music as a balance between spontaneous sound making and compositional rigor, with an emphasis on drones and repetition. he records and processes instruments and tapes until all traces of instrumentality are blurred, leaving only large blocks of pure sound.he is actively involved with long distance collaborations with musicians and sound artists such as seth nehil (as the duo sillage), richard garet and chuck bettis (as the duo hell hoarse). he is also a founding member of the group ouest, with longtime friends and collaborators jay sullivan and howard stelzer. other activities include playing drums and guitar in the rock band paper summer, composing music for ?lm and occasionally presenting a concert series in the boston area.
