- ACTUAL INFORMATIONS AND LATEST NEWS -
Napalmed distribution is available on the new website distribution.napalmed.cz. All sections are freshly updated | CD | VINYL | CASSETTE |
Long, really long time no updates here. World wide web's world is intense and variable, all is changed at every moment. We lost webhosting at virtualserver.cz so we actually move at MYSPACE.com (english) and at BANDZONE.cz (czech). We also work on new official website presentation under napalmed.cz, but it will takes some time.
Napalmed distribution is available on the new website distribution.napalmed.cz. Distro list is freshly updated there | CD | VINYL | CASSETTE |
To be presented on several places, we become a member of MYSPACE.COM. We found new "friends", contacts and also old pals started communication.
NAPALMED band will be presented on the brandnew website NAPALMED.VIRTUALSERVER.CZ. You could find band's news there, same as actual recordings from 'schoolschebna', live performances and other. Space is relatively wide so we will see what happened.
U.K. based label LO-FI OR DIE rex released before some time full-lenght 12" LP vinyl album of NAPALMED called "Strident Abrasive Auricular Erosion". At sound database you could listen minute samples and/or one full track over 10-years-old harsh noises. Ask Minzo for details and reserve your copy. Price is £10.
Few strange words about this excelent designed wax: "at last! th best of Napalmed's early recordings remastered from cassette! th recent stuff from Radek although admittedly super harsh has been boring as fuk, but th old material is some of th most versatile Noize we have experienced! Field-Recordings, Freefall, Sour-Milk, Industrial, Stratiform and of course lashings and lashings of harsh pulsing Stridor! very odd unexemplified inquisitive + so versatile and so wierd? i mean what th fuk are trying 2 tell us Radek? who is this guy? apparently he talks 2 machines then translates there shit back through Noize? verbocious imbercile or mechanical revolutinary? 4 sure HARSH AS FUK super varied and essential 2 ANYBODY in2 harsh Noize/PowerElektronix!!! 13 trax! - 13 trax uv polymerous, very varied an ultra harsh Noize frum Napalmed's early days! comes in th most extravagant packaging we have ever done!"
LONG AWAITED INFO! > After so long time of hibernation, silence and waiting NAPALMED rises up. Two new members were found. Both names are Martin again (the third and fourth), so we can continue the torture of listeners' ears. Actual line-up promises 'improvised industrial intensity', which flow around on both, schoolshebna and stage. To continue the chaos, we will use various names and logos in the future, so don't be afraid of NAPALMEDUO, NAPALMETRIO, NAPALMIX, NAPALMIECH, NAPALMEGA, NAPALMEDRTITCH, NAPALMEDRTINA and may be others.
As we got many objects and equipment we are based in the rehearsal space called "Schoolschebna". We will record new sound pieces, and mainly save there tons of metal junk, iron garbage and huge portion of electronix. Let's taste new vibrations from 'Live perfomance' on MASSACRE NIGHT VOL.2 fest, from 1.7.2006 in Vysoka Pec near Chomutov. I. [26 MB] | II. [5 MB] | III. [4 MB] | IV. [300 KB] |.
It seems we won't release new items as a normal editions, but upload them on internet for free. Only some of them will be presented as small edition series (5-10 copies) for collector freax, friends and other maniacs.
NAPALMED label co-released second album of the ZDARR band from Most town. It is named "Dar" (A gift). As the first debut album "Zdar" (1993) was, this is packaged in paper cover too. This time pretty nice Digipak, inc. three panel booklet w/photos & lyrics (sadly in Czech only). It is 1000 copies edition. Music is similiar to debut: strong uncommercial-melodies, multi-voice singing, accordeons, saxes, many percussion stuff, unusual musical ideas at the edges of folk, chanson, various ethnic feelings, rocking energy and many more. Band members called their style "Open Accoustic Fussion". Buy both albums for really low, special price!!!
NPLMD/NAPALMED is simple
title of brandnew item, which closed era of the old band and open space for the new project. Usual listener may be not hear the difference, but there are some, due to the fact of new equipment (mix + mics). You can listen MP3s, as well as buy extra packaged CD-R and support following life of the project.
So things are clear now. Because of many facts (technical, human and personal) I stop live performances at the end of last year. I thought about deleting all NAPALMED activities, but as I don't want to (k)ill my ego, pissed off few fans around the world, plus those who hate us shoud be happy so I still run unofficial distribution and label too. A band, as you know it, doesn't exist anymore. But please note, if you are interested in recordings from archive, re-editions, unreleased items or licenses feel free to contact me. The one and only homesite NAPALWEB will be there for your pleasure and information. Many pictures, photos, words as well as news wait in the huge archive. The old e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org was stopped (because of fucking spam too). If you are still interested in distro, label or release something of NAPALMED, drop a line here.
I will continue my sound experiments with new project NPLMD (could be varied as -N-P-L-M-D-, /N/P/L/M/D/, • N • P • L • M • D •, or others). Simple to say, no other members, no borders, no cliches, no waves, no forms. Endless space of aural fantasy is waiting, but I'm afraid of my own limits. I will see what happen, but for sure I will try to continue the line of sound quality and production itself. Please be patient, conception and new website, both are not finalised yet.
