Tem Eyos Ki's remastered LP masterpiece now available digitally!

I am honored to announce that, after being out-of-print for 9 years, North Little Rock punk/speed metal/chamber folk powerhouse Tem Eyos Ki has digitally reissued their classic 2002 LP on my Harlan Records site!

(download/listen here!)

The album is completely remixed and remastered by drummer/engineer Kevin Rains, and features a previously unreleased song as well. If you haven't heard this band (or this album), you're missing out on something powerful, visionary, and heartfelt. My favorite band of all time! Besides sharing membership with Soophie Nun Squad, members have gone on to perform in Humanbeast, Bloodhuff, V Manuscript, Universe, Divorce Chord, Holy Angell, and Zucura. Vocalist Maralie Armstrong-Rial is a multimedia performance artist, guitarist Eli Milholland runs the Gross Domestic Product cassette label, and guitarist Michael Lierly is an accomplished painter.

Here's a collection of Tem Eyos Ki photos up on my Flickr site.

You can also download digital versions of their 7", split 7" with Hundred Years War, and tour CDR.

May 20th-- Discussion & Signing in Durham NC for Comics Fest!

This Sunday, May 20th in Durham NC, I'll be doing a presentation/discussion (with the hilarious title "Surrealism and Civil Rights: The Graphic Novels Of Nate Powell") with Q&A and book signing from 2:30- 4 pm at the Southwest Regional Library (3605 Shannon Rd.), as a part of that weekend's Durham Comics Fest. Come out if you can!

Also, that weekend Chapel Hill NC will be hosting the Savage Weekend noise/experimental music fest at Nightlight. The Body, Humanbeast, and Bloodhuff will be playing, as will literally dozens of other bands and "bands".

See you there!
