New Releases on AST.



DIE TRIP COMPUTER DIE – ANGRY DAN PRESENTS: STOP KILLING JELLY TROUSERS c40

Altered States is proud to plop out this latest steaming opus by the now-defunct, absurdist trio, Die Trip Computer Die. Made up of men who were at one stage or another involved in UK post-punk unit The Homosexuals, DTCD utilise various instruments, circuit-bent equipment and plundered sample loops to achieve lift-off. Most importantly they use their (collective) MIND in order to crumble YOURS. Angry Dan Presents: Stop Killing Jelly Trousers was recorded live in Pontins, Nijmegan during a holiday in 2002 with the verbal verbosity of au pair, Angry Dan mastering ceremonies. However, this recording information may be merely another red herring left in your letterbox by the Trippers. ADP: SKJT is a twice a year listen, but when you do bring yourself to press play, it'll tie your laces and poach your eggs. 60 copies, pro tapes, cover + insert by Myjyerljcle Stevrdjnen Lesteechskinz.


JUNK SICK – RISING DAMP c36

Following the split lathe w/ C.C.C.C., Junk Sick take their scum-vibed slop down a less-trodden path. Rising Damp is more loop-based head-scratchin’ than balls to thee wall harshness, with still enough moments of ‘fingers in the ears’ to keep the noise wieners dribblin’. Rising Damp is to absurd noise what ‘Summer of 69’ is to karaoke bars. 60 copies, pro tapes. Split release w/ Magik Crowbar.


SLEEPING BAG FULL OF BOYS – SACKS FULL c35

The ‘Boys got together one summer at camp, bonding over harsh noise and bad taste. D’ya think they spent their stay riding the flying fox and toasting marshmallows? Not likely, mate. They decided to put their boy scout ingenuity to good use by making several sacks’ worth of loops and synth combustion. For true camp-site creepers only. 40 copies. Split release w/ Magik Crowbar.
