The Ritualistic School of Errors "Sweat Stained Fancy Heaps for First-Rate Ladies" RSPT029CDr$10
Witness avant-garde maestro Gregory Jacobsen’s fetid funland here rendered in sound. Prepared piano, cranberry sauce, strangled throat, flamenco guitar, operatic soprano and a quivery accordion succumb to a teetering pipe organ as it ushers in teutonic chorales. Music this cakey rich can only be the culmination of long, scarily obsessive years. The result, a vaudevillian feverish horror complete with narrative threads that tug at abject fear before unspooling in puerile fantasy. If you dare to know where music can go, this is one orgy best entered at home and alone. Contributors include members of Cheer Accident, Black Bear Combo, and Brilliant Pebbles. Six-panel digipak features Jacobsen's wretched paintings!
The Ritualistic School of Errors "s-t" RSPT014DVDr / CDr / Book$0
SOLD OUT "...a very modern ballet performed on broken legs by little girls, over-weight imbeciles and an orchestra featuring the finest talent available." Appalling, despicable, classy, wretched, hot and wet, this is the definitive archive on Earth of Chicago-based lovely little girl genius Gregory Jacobsen. A thirty page book of drawings, CD, comprehensive film and video works, live performances, photo galleries, and jangling gems too saggy to stay hidden.
