Which brings us up to today. Yes, it has happened again. The world is not ready, nor will it ever be, but yet here it is -here HE is- may I introduce to you once again, the incredible, the dynamic, the thrilling - DURAN DURAN DURAN!
Over Hard hits stores now and will be available very soon on mp3 sites everywhere! Over Hard sees our LORD in RAVE bringing us 11 of the most rocking tunes you're likely to find. Full of Bass and heaving with innovation, it's the record you need in your life- now more than ever! Here's 2 tracks for you to rip and share with your friends, and over on the page for the album we have mp3's for 5 more tracks!
Ok, so at this point it's not like a shock that I've been lame at updating the news section. Dunno why, but updating the HTML has been a pain. It's not really - but I guess just posting news bits up on the forum is waaaay easier. Well, anyway, Here's a recap of the past 2 years on CRD and I fucking hope I don't forget anything.
NERO'S DAY AT DISNEYLAND - FROM ROTTING FANTASYLANDS
In June of 2009 we release what I feel is one of our best and certainly most bold releases to date. Nero's Day At Disneyland is from San Fran, but by know you should all know his stuff, because he's amazing and completely, utterly unique. Pretty rare stuff these days.
DJ Rainbow Ejaculation 12"
We again teamed up with our friends over in Bristol at Death$ucker to present you with what we feel is the "most gay record in history". It's by Dj Rainbow Ejaculation, it's incredible, very, very fun, super bouncy and here's his website.
Cock Rock Disco Free Releases
But mainly for the past 2 years we've been focusing on the free music aspect of the website, and thanks to so very many of you- it's been a GREAT SUCCESS! Each of the free releases here on CRD get between 5,000 - 10,000 downloads, and that's sooo much more than we expected! We like to think it's because we have a very high standard for what we release and we're very proud of each and every one of them.
Honestly, there's just sooo much brilliant music on these releases you should go download as many as possible. Be it the bouncy Tween-fun from Sickboy or the future-rave from Herv, to the Break/surf insanity that is Retrigger or the industrial rumble of Fragment King. We have some releases that are darker and some releases that are lighter and we promise they are all great! Please tell your friends and share the luv!
And last but most assuredly not least, we did a compilation for iTunes, but they sort of fucked us over, so I just put the whole thing up @ 320. The website says it's lower res, but it's not. (wink!) Anyway, we did a tour with Otto, Duran x3, Nero and myself (DJDS) and it was really awesome. If you came out to the show I hope you had fun, because we all did.
That about catches us up, So GO DOWNLOAD EVERYTHING! I'll try to be better at this news thing. Sorry bout that again...
That's right! it's finally out! There you go! More Break-Booty-Electro-Horror-Porn than you can handle!Seriously his best work to date, super kicking awesomeness. Here, grab these tracks and check for yourself:

Also, we're hard at work to deliver to you- yes all of you- the next CRD free mp3 compilation! Expect tracks from all your favorites, and a few new artists too!
More stuff is in the works too, but that's enough for now! AH!
CMJ: COMPLETED! Somehow Pitchfork got wind of us. Check it! Thanks a ton to those who braved the wild depths of the Pussycat Lounge. It was memorable to say the least! Photos probably will pop up on the forum soon! Mega thanks to our friends at Load records, we had a blast, and despite the chaos, we had a bunch of fun!
"Grist", the debut release by Drumcorps is out in stores, selling fast, and racking up some of the best reviews we've ever seen! There's some preview tracks to check out on the album page; and of course, you can always buy the whole damn thing now from the online shop!

After the CRD show- there's a few CRD dates around the east coast, most notable is a show at "The Killing Center"- the moniker for our pal Machine's basement in new Brunswick, NJ. Why is this so special? Because most of us 2nd generation USA breakcore artists (Duranx3, Dev/Null, Xanopticon, Enduser, etc) met there, and its a "basement" of the VERY HIGHEST caliber. No, seriously. It will be absolutely awesome.

Then the band will do a USA tour in October and early November, ending at CMJ fest in NYC. More news on the tour ASAP!
As for more on the new band- it's a power rock trio, Ethan on guitar, Liz on keys, and Jason on Laptop and - get ready- vocals. Yes, you're going to be VERY surprised. Jason is writing the music and continues down the musical path he's established with his past 2 releases on Sonig- "Shamelessly Exciting" and "...Post Disco Crash" - with the new music being a bit more prog/hiphop/rock sounding. That's actually a bad description, but it's pretty different than anything we can figure, but we guarantee you it realllllly rocks! Anyway, they are busy making a demo now. It's possible that a Mp3 will be available in the near future!

It will also be featured in MTV's new "videos on demand" channel, and hopefully on MTV2... but who knows. We DO know that it's been converted to Ipod-video format here. So if you were among the millions of new Ipod users, then go grab it for FREE!

It comes with another beautiful poster too. It's a party in a bag.
The hype is rolling in on the new Jason Forrest record, expect to see him in big magazines like Blender and Entertainment Weekly in USA and Rolling Stone in germany. (Yeah, it freaks us out too.) But out now on newsstands (in the US at least) in the latest XLR8R our man JF interviews one of his heroes- Hank Shocklee, producers and co-founder of Public Enemy. Really, its a life-long dream for JF and the interview is really very good.
"Mr. Forrest" also has a feature in the new CMJ Monthly mag, and now, come to think of it, he plays 2 shows in the infamous CMJ Marathon in NYC mid-sept. Go to the gigs section for info on them and all the other fancy shit he's working on.
Doormouse comes to Europe again in early September, his gigs are listed in the gigs section too. Be sure to catch him, he's a demon onstage. Duran Duran Duran, Next Life and About will all be on tour this fall in EU, if you want the real rock, then get in touch now so we can sort it out.
Stunt Rock Cd is finished, and gets released late Sept. and we are really very excited about this album too. Get ready for more beer fueled trash rock. In our opinion this is the ultimate Stunt Rock release, slightly more mature, but not in the way you'd expect. Actually, it could really press the buttons of all you Anticon fans. Who knows. It also comes with really fancy packaging and is actually funny.
And lastly , the unbelievably great About record is done and gets released in October as well. If you like pop, rock, computers, beats, human singing, or music in general, then you will probably freak out and swear your devotion to him like teenage girls did to the Beatles.
Oh, and we're working on more shirts!
