It only took 5 years (double that, really), but PayPal checkout is finally an option on the Scream & Writhe website. The shipping calculator isn't perfect, but it's relatively close to it. If you think anything is showing in error you can order as before and I will email you a quote directly. Below are a few things I picked up in Toronto this past weekend, and one Lithuanian delivery. Thanks.

08/12/17: Closed for the week.

I'll be taking the shop offline for the week. The distro will be making its way to various Ontario cities while on tour with NYON.

The dates are as follows:

8/15 Hamilton - This Ain't Hollywood
8/16 London - wherever Crazy Dave makes it happen
8/17 Kitchener - Open Sesame
8/18 Toronto - Euro Sports Bar - with Crazy Joe on the go
8/19 Toronto - Array Space - the distro will be set up at the LIGATURE / PLEASURE ISLAND gig

Shop will reopen on the 20th or 21st after inventory is adjusted. Anticipating packages to arrive from Monorail Trespassing, Narcolepsia, Terror and Torn Light while I'm away.

The reopening will also see the long overdue arrival of full shipping and PayPal integration. That means quick and easy automated checkouts for all.

Thank you.

06/09/17: New Release on Absurd Exposition // New Arrivals and Restocks from (1.8)sec.records, Beyond the Ruins, Breathing Problem Productions, Monorail Trespassing, Nil By Mouth, Unrest Productions

New Release on Absurd Exposition

THE NAUSEA - Requiem Aeternam CS
Anju Singh has been the primary figure behind the Vancouver Noise Festival for the past seven years, the drummer and vocalist in long-running (and now nearing fully-realized) death metal band AHNA, and has held countless other roles in the punk, metal, and harsh noise scenes in Vancouver. THE NAUSEA has existed alongside all of this for the better part of a decade now. These six violin-based movements channel GYORGY LIGETI's works popularized in "2001: A Space Odyssey", and JOHNNY GREENWOOD's contemporary classical score for "There Will Be Blood", as they both ascend to levels of compositional clarity and descend into a cavernous, hellish nightmare populated by the harrowing voices of the dead and the dying. Similarities can be drawn to JASON LESCALLEET's epic "The Pilgrim" as the crescendo of harsh noise begins to decay. Death is the ultimate theme at play here. A long-awaited debut release from a figure instrumental in maintaining Vancouver's integrity in the harsh noise scene and beyond.

Edition of 100 copies on pro-dubbed, pad-printed, sonic-smoke coloured tapes.

Original artwork by Mark Orton.

'Egress Report' is the first full-length document in a decade, since 2007's 'Brute Force', and comes 7 years after the split 12" with BLUE SABBATH BLACK CHEER.

01/01/17: 2016 In Review

I'm still assessing the damage of 2016. It was no doubt a year of incredible loss on every level for almost anyone I can think of. We all lost people, and some of those people were the best people. These things happen and it's awful and unfortunate, and here we are. Yet with all that has happened I find myself going into 2017 feeling relatively good. Perhaps out of necessity.

2016 was the second best year for the distro - which is now entering its 10th year (5th under this name) - topped only by the spectacular 2014 where I busted my ass at every turn to make it what it was. Looking at the numbers I'm quite surprised, because I don't feel like I busted my ass nearly as much this year to achieve a relatively similar outcome. A shift in focus, from 8 years of trying to be a catch-all distro covering many genres and (mostly) complementing my own widespread interests to the decision to focus primarily on black metal and noise, has clearly been beneficial. Halfway through the year, with the departure of a short-term distro partner the focus shifted again and thus only noise (particularly harsh noise and power electronics) will be the distro's mandate for the foreseeable future. I initially had conflictions about limiting the genres I carry, with the biggest reason being that there simply is no punk distro in Canada. I could have easily taken that route, ditched noise and everything else and done arguably better by being a punk distro, but my heart wouldn't have been in it enough - the fourth paragraph here contains the same questions I find myself facing as of late. I have less reservations about ditching metal in the distro because Mass Deadening is holding it down first and foremost, and Tour de Garde has it covered for the truest of underground freaks. Noise is the future.

As far as Absurd Exposition goes: six tapes dropped this year from FLATLINE CONSTRUCT, MAUSSADE, MOISTURE DISCIPLINE, ANDREW NOLAN, SUBSIST and UNEXAMINE. I'm having a hard time not putting several of them on my year-end list. 2017 will see tapes from BT. HN, COASTAL, FLATGREY, THE NAUSEA, TASKMASTER and others.

Travel highlights this past year have been: SUBSIST playing in BC (February), going on the road for a few days in America with INTENSIVE CARE / SCALP ELEVATOR (August continues to be the highlight-month of my years), Not Dead Yet in Toronto (October), PROFANE ORDER playing with ABYSS and TOMB MOLD in Toronto (November).

I threw a few zines into the void and there will be a few more coming this year.

As with last year I've gathered year-end-list contributions from a few friends and acquaintances over the past week or so. Keeping in line with distro-direction these are predominantly noise-related lists. They have been posted below in order of submission, beginning with my own entries.

Thanks to everyone who contributed and to everyone who has shown support for the distro this past year and all years prior. The future is noise.
