while this pic has nothing to do with African American Psycho, it has lots to do with the cover of My So Crev Life since it’s from the scene of the shoot.
yeah, for those lucky few folks that stumbled onto this here blog and keep re-stumbling back onto it, we sold out of the tape. other than 3 instances that are still being straightened out (next time, I’m copping a P.O. box) all of them got to their owners safe and sound to our knowledge. I hope you guys enjoy the music on the tape as much as the tape itself.
next up is the video for ‘she calls me when…’ and it’s a wild one. intrepidly speaking ….
if you are wondering where to get the young purple tape, then wonder no more…
1. if you don’t live in L.A. then you have to order it via the bandcrev page and we’ll pretty much ship anywhere. no promises that the lame customs dudes don’t snatch it up, but we’re down to try….
3. there are around 22 left as of this writing, and this is counting the ones in stores..
under a blanket of media silence and lames saying not a peep, we hit the best sellers list 48 hours out the box. and it’s still up there selling……
when I did african american psycho LAST YEAR, it was to continue a campaign that originally started with black jack parsons and was supposed to end with my so crev life on 12/12/12. events turned and became a chain and this translated to the records not dropping at their slated times and me looking very inactive to the populace at large. or so I thought…..
upon closer reflection, the best thing that I could have done was hang out along the side, see what everyone was doing up close and fine tune my “sound” so that when I thought it was ready (along with my new approach) I could drop it on a unsuspecting populace for acclaim and fair fortune. not quite. once I finally got my head out the clouds and other, I remembered that my whole goal was to start from scratch and make GET CREV LABS a new brand that could be looked at over time on par with something like Alife and Fiction Records, basically an art production house that put out whatever we could do justice to. to me, exposing people to 30 minutes of music is like exposing people to some 8X8 painting or an 18 minute short film or even a piece of clothing made in a new and unconventional method: it’s all art….
what this all translates to is the idea of dropping limited edition things and their availability. the new african american psycho record should drop today because it’s officially next month. since this starts from the bottom, it’s only right that you hear it first from here and not some 3rd party blog that would give welcome authenticity to a new production. I can only hope that over time, this product becomes the cult artifact that I intend for it to be. all the videos and remixes that will accompany it will be annexes to the existing intellectual property, expansion packs to a model city in miniature…..
when the first video drops, it will be an event like the tape dropping. same with vinyl, same with CD.
HERE IS THE LINK. more soon come.
here is me pressing reset. you can call me giovanni, gino or mr. marks….
and here’s another sighting, this time from the Nor Cal (northern california) region courtesy of the dude Matthew Holt, AND he has the disk in hand!!!!
(here was his “satisfied customer” testimony)
“Just picked up BLACK JACK PARSONS! I’m gonna be flossing the shirt and slapping the album in the UK ! Real clean look with the floppy disk CD packaging, and the shit wreaked of weed when I opened it ! Hahaaha real good look…”
Matt looked like he smoked whatever was allegedly in the bag that the shirt came in and I’m pretty sure someone’s getting arrested or sex’d upon while wearing that shirt. on some Serpentor shit, THIS I COMMAND.
