Artist: VINCENT OVER THE SINK
Title: 22 Coloured Bull-Terriers
Format: Double LP
Label: Another Dark Age
Country: UK
Price: $29.00
“Matthew P. Hopkins and Chris Schueler were Vincent Over the Sink and 22 Coloured Bull-Terriers was their 23-track opus. "Think about music, but then dig a hole." Hidden beneath an astoundingly diverse range of experimental and DIY output by Hopkins (The Bowles, Naked on the Vague; Penultimate Press, Vittelli, Kye) and Schueler (The Bowles; Kye) is the disorienting, psychedelic mess of Vincent Over the Sinks 22 Coloured Bull-Terriers. Written between 2005 and 2007 in Australias Blue Mountains, Sydney, and Melbourne, its limited 2008 cassette release was lauded by those who heard it and lusted after by those who hadnt. This 2015 reissue, remastered by Mikey Young, comes in the form of a double-vinyl gatefold designed by Hopkins. Ten years on from its conception, 22 Coloured Bull-Terriers is still a rollicking, psychotic, and kaleidoscopic dream that demands reinterpretation on every listen. Made of 23 dazzling lo-fi vignettes and songs that range from tender spoken and vocal excursions ("Number Theory") to acoustic and instrumental sketches ("Santa Maria"), lullaby duets ("Blackbird" and "Rainblame"), and devastating, fleshed-out, no-new-wave songwriting ("Mice in the Ocean" and "Horses Screaming"). Schueler and Hopkins formed Vincent Over the Sink in 2001 and offered little in the way of heralded releases. The project lurked in the shadows of the Australian east coast scene. Even the 2008 cassette release of 22 Coloured Bull-Terriers saw no Vincent Over the Sink shows and only one (excellent) street press interview given by Schueler. Their most penetrating music came on a 7" on Graham Lambkins Kye label in 2011, sounding like a terrifying washed-out DIY chamber music record. Sadly, it was released posthumously in memory of Schueler who had passed away a year earlier. What little material had arisen from this long partnership would be all the world was left with. These 23 tracks capture one part of the southern zeitgeist in the same way Flying Nuns early archive did. Vincent Over the Sink were two mates who could have been trying to record a Mick Hobbs record in their garage. The album mirrors The Shadow Rings Put the Music in Its Coffin. Its a work full of the forlorn, dark humor in Pink Reasons alienating lyrics. 22 Coloured Bull-Terriers is all of this but none of it and Another Dark Age is extremely proud to present it with all the fanfare it deserves.” - Another Dark Age.

Title: Bible Bashers
Format: Cass
Label: Goaty Tapes
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"I reissued this tape because it rules. I keep Bible Bashers between the car seat and the center console, or on top of the tape deck, or in my ass pocket; its on constant rotation. Recorded at Wolfgangs House, Glenbrook Lagoon, Blue Mountains, Australia, 2009. Grim pianos melt over dumb horns, downer chords drowned in dishwater vox. I keep seeing domestic interiors with moving walls, skeletal fingers hitting single keys, a hall of mirrors, goosebumps. Vincent Over The Sink are no longer. They were a magnetic flash of weird in an otherwise predictable succession of DIY styles. Bible Bashers is one of only a few releases documenting their curious flavor. I usually like the transience of home recordings, but some things are worth remembering." - Goaty Tapes.

Title: Dust Studies
Format: 7"
Label: Kye
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Memorial release from the Sydney-based duo of Matthauw Hopkins and Christopher Schueler (RIP). Over a handful of lathes/CDRs and the mind-boggling 22 Coloured Bull-Terriers cassette Vincent Over The Sink managed to cloud the backwaters of Australian culture with a haze of rustic elec...tronics, late-night guitar habitats and broken song. This is music made by and for those who find themselves "thinking about music but then digging a hole." Dust Studies offers up four distressed miniatures that put the fortunate listener somewhere between Ladder of Souls and Golem. The perfect place to pay a final respect. Dust Studies comes in a hand-numbered edition of 300 copies with cover art by Graham Lambkin." - Kye.
