There are a few exciting Golden Gonk/Shack in the Barley Productions-related bits and pieces to tell you about, so here we go…
* FREE GONK SERIES BACK ONLINE!! *
As you may have read a couple of updates back, my file host of choice Megaupload ‘died’ some time in January, taking the entire Free Gonk MP3 series down with it. I was not impressed. Well- good news if you were hoping to download any of the releases, but couldn’t due to the dead links, ‘cos I’ve only gone and re-uploaded the WHOLE STINKIN’ LOT to a new host!!
Here are the new links to the goodies…fill yer boots:

http://www.mediafire.com/?hhh7wy43p2zyiqp (Vol. 3 “On the Subconscious Promenade”)
http://www.mediafire.com/?e9v9xbk3kkyltip (Vol. 4 “Bright Emissions From the Weapons Room”)
http://www.mediafire.com/?4xrafepc8z2u89o (Vol. 5 “Flickering Greens, Leaking Blues & Exploding Blacks – Live Summer 2008”)
http://www.mediafire.com/?0t848redw5pcfsw (Vol. 6 “Ich Träumte von den Dunklen Zeiten”)

Free Gonk vol. 9 (“Seasons of the Gonk”) was the first release uploaded to the new host. You’ll find the link to this in the previous blog post, as well as on the Listen & Download page. On the other hand, if you’re actually fully up to date with all this shizzle, impatiently awaiting your next Gonk fix then you’ll be pleased to learn that vol. 10 (“Towards…”) will hopefully be hosted and posted before the end of the month. I trust you can all hold out until then!!
* THREE FRENCH ROOSTERS AND BREATH OF THE ONION RELEASES PLANNED FOR APRIL *
Shack in the Barley Productions is proud to announce the addition of two more projects to its roster- the Plunderphonics/Free Improv trio Three French Roosters and the one man Dark Ambient/Drone project Breath of the Onion. If all goes to plan, I’ll be putting out the debut releases by both of these during April!!
I won’t give *too* much away just yet, but for now I can reveal that the Three French Roosters album is entitled “Sober Doberman Enjoys a Cemetery Sandwich” (the front cover of which you can see above), while the Breath of the Onion album goes by the name of “Laying Low For a Living”.
I’m ultra excited to be working with both projects- their music is great!! Expect more info in the coming weeks…
Righty ho- I’ll leave it there for the time being. As I said before, the next release in the pipeline is the ‘long-awaited’ (by me at least!!) Golden Gonk album “Towards…”, so keep your eyes peeled for this!!
Bye for now…
