AT LAST it's available!!! Experience the original recording from which spawned the band which was the brainchild of Ted Worthless! The project was recorded at The Edge of The Earth Studios in 1986, and featured a revolving cast of contributors, but anchored by Ted. Some contributors to the project included: Ted Worthless (of course) - Songwriting, Vocals, Guitar, Drill, Bass, Keys & More; Dave Baker -Drums, Vocals on "Living Lies", misc.; Scott Roman-Songwriting on "Don't Put Me In A Box"; Mike Hustad -Vocals on Eastern Theatre, Some Bass.
Gehenna Tattoo's style has been tabbed "Electro-Acoustic Bloodletting of the Soul" The project is much more accessible than is typically expected from NLM alumns. Some Standout cuts: Perfect Day, Charlie The Arkangel, This Body, and a revamped cover of Moral Supports 20th Century!
NLM + Love Spit Love + Pedro the Lion + a dash of Daniel Amos = the latest from Worthless Records, Gehenna Tattoo. Every Tuesday night during 2001, for about as many Tuesday nights as I can recall, Ryan Brown was holed up in an undisclosed south Phoenix location with Scott, Mike, and Dave. These three NLM survivors started playing out as a stripped down trio known as Gehenna Tattoo. These Tuesday night sessions were so inspired I even took my kid down to watch one night. And, after countless Tuesdays, at last, an album was born: "Songs of the Weak". -Geoff Brown
This Three Song Demo was recorded back in 1989 in between Discernment and Monstor. It was a six-month experiment with Ted Worthless switching to Bass and the addition of Gavin Affatica on guitar. More of an accessible, straight-ahead rock sound was prevalent on these three tunes. These tunes were in the hands of very few people at the time, and even fewer still today. Nate Stiffler was on drums, and Scott Roman was on Vocals.
Interesting side note: There were two photos of the band taken for this project. Both of the buildings were either torn down or burned down after the pictures were taken. The pictures we took for Discernment were at a train station that burned down, and the picture on the back of the Monstor CD was taken inside the remains of then drummer Dave Blomgren's home, which had caught fire and burned down. Strange but true.......
The Live Skate Benefit Concert took place on November 28th, 1987. It's purpose was to raise money to support the Skateboarding club that hung out in our church's parking lot at the time. While we practiced at the church, the skaters would practice tricks and jumps, etc. ! At that time, it was quite a big deal in the area. The concert took place outside in the courtyard of the church, and attracted alot of skaters and their supporters. The acoustics were horrible, as the courtyard was enclosed by block walls! Recorded with a four track! The file consists of two tracks - Part 1 of the concert, and Part 2 of the concert. This was also the only recording we have that features Joe "Lizardman" Domikaitis on Bass. Enjoy!!!!
