Herhalen is a small tape/download label I help run, mostly putting out drone, noise, weird electronics etc.

We've got a new release out (our fourth) - a split between Ship Canal, Splashy the Blame-Shifter and Lenina.

Downloads (pay what you want) are now available, and the actual tape will go on sale on July 25th, the night Ex-Servicemen support Kevin Drumm in Nice 'N' Sleazy, Glasgow.

Check it out!

Bourgeois Kerb Stomp is a three-way split between members of Ex-Servicemen, Glasgow’s only industrial dub power trio. From gruelling fast food confessionals and air-burning amp abuse, to piano-led laments and pitiless digital dread, this hackneyed pageant of lack is a sprawling, tasteless slog through the long, lonely blank.

Splashy the Blame-Shifter works piano, banjo and microphones into detailed mutant drones and screaming hard drive psych. Utterly joyless - a lot like that Patty Waters/Pan Sonic/Prurient record you’ve heard so much about. Built for headphones.

Lenina uses drum machines and feedback to generate torrential grid-locked anti-rock. Refusing anything other than endless climax, this is feral, sense-melting excess with its eyes on the heavens and its hands round your throat.

Ship Canal stole most of his gear, and it shows. Grimy, broken Britain slop caked in dole queue gloom and the stench of rising damp. The kind that leads to lung infections. Think Storm Bugs fronted by The Bohman Brothers. Or Scott & Co with synths.

Each tape comes with original screen-printed artwork by Vickie McDonald, a unique, hand-numbered Polaroid photograph by Victoria Stevenson, and a hand-stamped cardboard outer sleeve.
