Gapplegate Reviews Shrunken Head Shop!

December 9th, 2013

Thanks to Grego Applegate Edwards for the review of Shrunken Head Shop in the Gapplegate Guitar and Bass Blog!

Gapplegate Guitar and Bass Blog

"Oteri's guitar has presence; he is in full control of his sound and builds atmospheric sculptures that Laczko complements with sympathetic and aurally keen counter-envelopes of sound. This is one of those CDs that entirely deserves to be heard by anyone who likes to live inside exotically compelling musical environments. It's rather beautiful too."

A Successful Austin Super Session!

November 14. 2013
We had a very successful Super Session - non-stop super long jam, in Austin November 3, setting the record for the longest non-stop improvisation in Austin and beyond. Hoping to someday break the world record we set in Italy of 45 hours.

On the tour dates front, working again with Chris Boulet on booking for duos in Italy with him on spoken word. We also will do some shows with Dave Laczko as WD-41 and special guests. All of these shows will be in Italy in April. Hoping also to do some April shows with the Open Ear Consortium again in Italy and May shows with Shrunken Head Shop in Germany. I will post the confirmed dates in the Tour section soon.

Be sure to drop in on one if you are in the Austin TX area. Other shows in Austin as well so keep an eye out. I will be in the EU in early 2013 for gigs as well TBA.

Upcoming SXSW, and Working With Dave Laczko and Ricardo Acevedo

February 18, 2013

We are almost done with the editing for the Shrunken Head Shop - Live in Germany release. There was a lot of great stuff in there but we needed to make a nice tidy CD so we trimmed out a lot of stuff. It will be a great one so look for the offical release date to be sometime in April with full downloads in various formats available before that.

Other news, we will be doing a showcase during SXSW in Austin TX at one of the many non affiliated showcases (always the best) so keep an eye out for that.

Dave Laczko and myself have just finished tracking on some cool music by Ricardo Acevedo and will be doing some shows with him around TX soon. Keep looking on our Tour Dates page for more info.
