Limited to just over 200 copies, handmade gatefold sleeves with spraypaint/collage/ distress upon each (not always at once), this 2LP compilation features the humdingers of the entire decade of adventure that has been Old Gold.

Title: Songs from 20th Century Homes
Format: LP
Label: Old Gold
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Back when Old Gold was all about cassette tapes, we got a curious package in the mail from Winnipeg. In it was a letter from Michael Dumontier extolling the virtues of our Howard Finster cassette release, some highly amusing collaborative drawings, and a "Tape for Old Gold" crafted with unique handmade slipcase/booklet. That began an ongoing correspondence/swap of art and music with numerous Canadians within and around the soon-to-be-famous Royal Art Lodge collective, all tied together by Dumontier. As our enthusiasm for their efforts grew, we revisited the first tape in 2000, and this time it sounded like a record. Michael tracked down what musicians he could, made a few changes, and the result is Songs from 20th Century Homes, an LP with hand-screened cover released in an edition of just over 200, with songs by Eyeball Hurt and the Medicine, Drue and Myles Langlois, Albatross, DJ EZ Pot Roast, and two tracks from the always mind-melting Untanned Hide of a Young Cow (whose 10" on Old Gold is sold out, sorry), and snippets of artwork by Dumontier, Marcel Dzama, and Neil Farber. All in all, a brilliant glimpse into an odd world inhabited by people who must stay inside the majority of the year. Intimate, powerful performances and tomfoolery sure to be the life of your Christmas party." - Old Gold.
SOLD OUT

Artist: YXIMALLOO
Title: Fangs Of Lucifer
Format: LP
Label: Old Gold
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
A surprising and well deserved reissue of 1981-86 era tracks by Naofumi Ishimarus project of 20 + years. Imagine a cross between prime Half Jap (Jad Fair even supplied the cover art to some of his tapes from the early 80s) with the some of the more electronic LAFMS projects and youll get the gist. Beautifully packaged as well. "Naofumi Iziwaru was another one of the first to respond to Old Golds formative request for musical submissions. With dozens of releases under the name Yximalloo dating back to the 1970s, Nao had put a transdimensional dent in the cassette underground and his collaborations with Jad Fair raised more than a few wooly eyebrows. He sent us numerous tapes and they put us on the floor in a puddle of our own souls crying out for more, rethinking our own music making, and asking to please - please! - let us re-release his music. This resulted in five tapes of our own hand-picked smorgasbord, resequenced at his request. When he began making CDs, we tackled the daunting challenge of compiling about 40 minutes worth of his best music from digital and analog to marry on clear vinyl. It took several years, a lot of late nights, and handfuls of reverse/fast forward, but in the end, we were happy, Nao was happy, and now you can be happy, too dammit. Electronic clank, off kilter funk, galactic babble, pre-historic riddims, utterly melodic snatches of techno wizardry are here set forth. Most were sold in Europe; grab what few are left from Fusetron. Comes in clear bag with clear inserts with track listing, musician credits (no small feat that!), and instructions for a performance piece called Fangs of Lucifer which we dare you to try, but not unsupervised." - Old Gold. "Its dada and Romper Room, punk and situationist, naive art and sophistry. Eccentricity is just the beginning." - Thomas Peake.
SOLD OUT

Artist: ZANDOSIS
Title:
Format: Triple CDR Box Set
Label: Old Gold
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Too many recordings piling up, so we said: boxset. Over 3 hours of sounds ranging from early-70s-European-improv and ambient metal to an hour-long piece involving ping pong balls and feathers and, of course, everyones favorite "George W. Bush Go Straight to Fucking Hell." Actually, three or four versions of that one, real fierce like. All lovingly drawn labels and sleeves, a black-and-white booklet, in a box with color cover and a Cyrillic title. Edition of 23. Sold out." - Old Gold.

Artist: ZANDOSIS
Title: Black Bomb ATL
Format: CDR
Label: Old Gold
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"45-minute cdr of live assault capturing the three-sided dice of the mighty Zandosis. Includes our Christmas show in historic Auburn Avenue soul/reggae club; an old-school-Merzbow set; and the infamous Stickfigure showcase set with a crowd so in-tune we want to bear their children. Edition of 26 lettered A-Z in painted/screen printed/glued AOL tri-fold case thing. Sold Out." - Old Gold.

Artist: ZANDOSIS
Title: Chasing Ghosts
Format: Cass
Label: Old Gold
Country: USA
Price: $4.50
"Sounds like Zandosis first PSF release, just in time for 1974. Les Rallizes Denudes plus Kaoru Abe and a weather damaged reel of ?-inch tape. Merzbow, Nihilist Spasm Band, Blowhole and Gorgoroth are not so much analogues as they are (lost) reference points. The ancient easterners used to believe that when they ate animals, they took on their spirit, their properties. Here, Zandosis does that very thing by ingurgitating the zeitgeist of Cages "1st Construction in Metal," Merzbows "Rainbow Electronics," and the writings of Emile Cioran. Like Cioran---and Suzuki, even---Zandosis are adept at unclothing despair and laying bare its humor. If chasing ghosts is supposed to take you somewhere, then its to a Cambodian whorehouse where the porch folk sit all day and watch townies get mauled by rabid dogs. Think on this; add some teriyaki, sake and warm Budweiser and youll know where theyre comin from. Highly recommended." - Copper Green, 2004.

Title: Z vs. W
Format: 7"
Label: Old Gold
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"In January of 2000, we got together with no pre-conceived notion of what wed sound like. T-Def (Charlie Parker, Free Bass, "Destroy All Music" on WREK FM) was known to be loud, frantic, noisy and deliberately so. Stewart (formerly of William Carlos Williams, Lustmordem, At War with Satan, and PissChrist) played drums with a tiny Han Bennink on one shoulder and a tiny Dave Lombardo on the other. I had an alto saxophone, a microphone and a borrowed amp. Together, the sky would be the limit or the sky would fall. Fast forward to March of 2003. That motherfucker George W. Bush is sending the country (and its young men and women) to fight a pre-emptive war for no real good reason. Wed been playing very free, early-FMP/Haters style music, and focused our sonic output on those pushing this invasion. The result was about 15 short bursts of energy directed at 15 members of the Project for the New American Century. It felt good. Damn good, in fact. And it sounded good. The next time we played live, we played this new hardcore set. The lazy art crowd in the house enjoyed it. We dug it, too, sent it to the Czech Republic, pressed it onto 220 heavy vinyl records, wrapped them in print shop cleaner paper, and are unleashing it on the world. Chris may list the song titles. He may not. Either way: "Colin Powell Uncle Tom" was omitted by the pressing plant, so if you want to hear that song, gather two of your friends, count to four real fast and start screaming liar and/or fucker or any combination of the two while your friends unleash a torrent of rage. When youre done, say sell out." - Marshall Avett; Old Gold.
