Interview with ELI V MANUSCRIPT in the Providence Phoenix


Here's a enlightening interview with Eli V Manuscript, AKA Eli Milholland-- lifelong best friend, performer in Humanbeast/ V Manuscript/ Tem Eyos Ki/ Soophie Nun Squad, and in recent years a writer as well.

Eli has a new book of writings out, Madness Of The Canary, available here, and is finishing work on a new Humanbeast album entitled Pantheon (with his other half, Maralie Armstrong-Rial) to be released in coming months on Load Records, while releasing more music on his own Gross Domestic Product label.

(here are some Humanbeast photos I took from 2009-2010 as well.)

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.

Soophie Nun Squad was a 10-piece, way-over-the-top punk ensemble I was in from 1992-2006, based in Little Rock, AR. Our last three records are now available digitally from Plan-It-X Records for less than $5 each-- download links are below.
