things are going to start disappearing from this page periodically to make room for newer recordings. if you don't see something you want, email me and ask about it.

i am not a corporation or a record label. i have found that this is the easiest and fastest way to disseminate my work, and for the time being this is how it'll stay. reasons for this are partly because i am an inept businessman, and partly because i make copies of recordings only when someone orders them, so as not to have hundreds of unsold discs sitting around my studio. if you want something, email me and then send a check or money order. any distributors who are interested in carrying my work, email me for details. prices are as follows (unless otherwise noted):

CDRs: $8
CDs: $10
LPs: $12
7": $8
books: $10

this includes postage w/in the u.s.
for overseas, tell me what you want and i'll let you know how much postage is.
i cannot accept paypal, sorry.
