Patrick Wensink has made this cute webmercial for his new novel & audiobook ‘Broken Piano for President’. I’ll let it speak for itself, but to me, the funniest part is the inclusion of text from a rejection letter he got from Viking Press. 

Broken Piano for President from Patrick Wensink on Vimeo.
BTW, the novel is available NOW via Lazy Fascist Press and the audiobook is on presale now via Deathbomb Arc. The score to the audiobook was composed by me under my new solo pseudonym True Neutral, with the help of some very talented guests such as Christina Gubala and Brian Chippendale (Lightning Bolt / Black Pus).

ANNOUNCING TWO NEW RELEASES ON DEATHBOMB ARC!

These both have been a long time in the planning, I am very excited to finally make it official. The first is a triple LP anthology of my favorite band of all time, rRope. Active in the mid 90s and based in San Francisco, rRope are a noise rock act unlike any I’ve ever heard. Harder than My Bloody Valentine, more experimental and dreamy than your average Touch n’ Go band, they were an incredible force in the 90s California music scene. Their music has been primarily unavailable for nearly 2 decades. We’ve collected all their albums, 7”s and comp tracks and remastered everything. The triple LP comes out in early May, but pre-orders get an immediate digital download of the entire album. 
The second is our first exploration into releasing an audiobook. ‘Broken Piano For President’ is the literal books on tape version of Patrick Wensink’s 3rd novel. Read by the author and with a score by True Neutral (member of Foot Village). The cassette has the readings with score on side a, and just the music on side b, plus a bonus theme song called “Call on the Herd”. Guest musicians on the release are Brian Chippendale (Lightning Bolt/Black Pus), Ezra Buchla (ex-Gowns, EMA contributor), and Christina Gubala. Cassettes ship in early April and come with a download code. We also have limited copies of a deluxe edition that comes with a signed copy of the novel.

In 2012 Deathbomb Arc heads into new territory, even for us. We are teaming up with author Patrick Wensink to release the books on tape version of his forthcoming 3rd novel Broken Piano for President (published by Lazy Fascist Press). The cassette will feature a soundtrack composed by Brian Miller (hey, that’s me!) of Foot Village / Back To The Future The Ride. We will also be offering a deluxe edition including a copy of both the novel and cassette. 
Broken Piano for President is a ludicrous world where the lives of noise musicians, burger moguls, astronauts, and meth addicts get caught in one baffling knot. Stay tuned for more.

Melodic Expectation: Top 11 Favorite Free Albums, 2011

Just noticed that the ‘Pronoia Sunsets’ cassette on Accidie is now sold out. This means the only Back To The Future The Ride cassette still in print is ‘Neutino Based Lifeforms”. Get one while you can from the label that put it out, 5nakefork. It is unlikely that any of the 4 BTTFtr cassettes will be back in print… ever?

Impose Magazine review of 'Chatroom Enhancing Drugs'

Unlike fellow company with pop-culture-appropriated names (e.g. Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head et al.) Back to the Future the Ride’s ambient and at times noisy sounds are surprisingly fitting with the ’80s sci-fi comedy franchise extension. Miller, ostensibly a time travel enthusiast, conjures bent timelines where present/futuristic glitches touch classicism of the past.”

Get Off The Coast blog shares some kind words about the latest BTTFtr album:
“Brian Miller is a forever busy kinda dude, and he keeps it that way. For many being a part of the drum & vocal legends Foot Village would be enough, but Brian also toils away on other things like his record label, Deathbomb Arc, and various side projects such as Back To The Future The Ride. It’s been a while since we last heard from BTTFtr, but yesterday Miller released Chatroom Enhancing Drugs. The album is a collection of singles and compilation tracks, as well as 3 previously unreleased tracks (one of which is a remix from tik///tik aliasSatisHouse of entire BTTFtr album Neutrino Based Lifeforms.) With Miller as busy as he is it’s always exciting to hear new music from him, so we’ll try to keep his schedule in mind as we beg and plead for the next album to come ASAP.”
- I promise, new music soon as my new alias True Neutral. Promise.

Very sweet review of my “real” last album. In case you missed the late night post last night, here is a link to my “fake” last album: http://deathbombarc.com/DBA114
melodicexpectation:

Back To The Future The Ride - Gay Wish
This is the last “major” release from Back To The Future The Ride, besides a b-sides compilation—Brian Miller, the guy behind BTTFTR, is starting a new project called True Neutral, so all is not lost—and he’s got the audacity to release something so short and so spectacular. It’s less than twenty minutes long and, for my money, the best bit of warm ambient noise released this year. Back again is the massive guitar noise, with some new added elements like vocals (both sampled snippets and auto-tuned dada-poems). It also includes a scarce cover of classic surf song Blue Hawaii. The elements of the original song are, at best, barely there and, at worst, entirely nonexistent. But the escapism is palpable—think Terry Gilliam’s Brazil—beneath the dust and mechanical grays, color and light are shining through.

ANNOUNCING TWO NEW RELEASES ON DEATHBOMB ARC!

These both have been a long time in the planning, I am very excited to finally make it official. The first is a triple LP anthology of my favorite band of all time, rRope. Active in the mid 90s and based in San Francisco, rRope are a noise rock act unlike any I’ve ever heard. Harder than My Bloody Valentine, more experimental and dreamy than your average Touch n’ Go band, they were an incredible force in the 90s California music scene. Their music has been primarily unavailable for nearly 2 decades. We’ve collected all their albums, 7”s and comp tracks and remastered everything. The triple LP comes out in early May, but pre-orders get an immediate digital download of the entire album. 
The second is our first exploration into releasing an audiobook. ‘Broken Piano For President’ is the literal books on tape version of Patrick Wensink’s 3rd novel.
