There is!,, honestly 2013 is probably when I can really devote myself to the Decline II project though - Instead of carving time out for that this year I'll definitely get around to updating the BandCamp page with some lost tracks at some point,, there'll will be a video we filmed in my house of a new song premiering in a couple months,, that will give me a good occasion to dump some older demos down and make'm available,,, off the top of my head there are probably 4 more lost songs from the same Type Foundry reels that made up 'Chords of Fame', 'Thorns' and 'From Now On' etc..,, we'll get'em out,, it'll just take time...

2012 should definitely have::

Lilacs & Champagne
Jandek "Seattle Friday" (Emil, Liz=Grouper, Sam Coomes=Quasi/Elliot Smith)
Om
Warm Coals Expanded
Black Tar 5

and *more*

we've got up to 3 more releases slowly brewing,, who knows when we can realize'em-- 10-4

You guys are some of the hardest working groups out there. These new releases are gonna be so nice. I don't mean to keep haranguing you about this, but the more physical the better. Even if it's a generic cd-r burned off a commodore 64 (not possible, I know) and thrown in the most basic cardstock sleeve, physical is always good. I don't buy much digital music. Every once in a while I do...



I'm sure you're not exactly swimming in dough, so I'm not trying to grief you over a couple of bucks.

A bit out of topic in terms of recent posts, but I would love to see the lyrics anthologized on the holy sons site. Is there a chance you could set up a lyrics archive?

Hello, this is my first post. I just wanted to ask something indirectly music related.

During one of your earlier podcasts with Duncan you mentioned taking philosophy classes and even taking lead of an Existentialism class in university.

Could you talk a little about which philosophers effected you the most in university?

Also, certain philosophers really come out in Decline of the West.

Do you still take influence from philosophy when creating music in the Holy Sons and more specifically, what influence has it played in Volume II?

Very interested and thank you once more.
I will be buying Volume II immediately!

Matthew

As far as I remember Alex was messing with gregorian-type organ samples in his room one night around 2004 or 5,, crushing and pitching them,,, we actually brought some drums upstairs and set them up next to his bed, plugged in a mic and that song just kind of happened... at the time those guitar melodies were pretty heavily influenced by Erkin Koray,,, but yeah,, the opening was originally a sample that we had to imitate live... you can hear that on the recording that came out of a show in Boston on the Important comp.//or in the hard drive failure mp3 pak >> KILLER // 10-4

Brilliant! It was always be my earliest memory of Grails. It has that whole 'trouble is coming' kinda mood.
