||lots of news to report
-thanks to all those who came out for the show in nyc.
all went well.
- all principle photography was finished on idling:
the story of octofist and editing and post-production
will start very soon. it will probably be accompanied
by a soundtrack cd.
- a "live" octofist album will be produced,
recreating the way our songs are performed live. our good
will be helping us out with that.
-we have shirts. some dust needs to be cleared before
we will be offering them to the general public, but they
are pretty awesome and were designed and printed by our
friend katherine (who will have a webpage as soon as i
finish making it.

of a breakdown review @ regen
-octofist's remix of betray
the species is on the limited edition sleepwalker

||more great press... here's
a review of "buy one get one" from IndustrialnatioN
magazine's Stephen Sodergren:
removed @ IN's request
also, due to monetary issues, documentary of a breakdown
is going to be released in a limited 100 cdr pressing
with new artwork (still on can't stop eating). when these
are sold out, there will be a new, real pressing, probably,
but until then you can buy them from the cse site.
the new artwork can be seen here.
||once again, long time, no
update... but rest assured, we've got plenty of news.
documentary of a breakdown is pretty much ready to go
to press, so stay tuned for more info on that. check back
here, or at can't
stop eating (since they'll be putting it out).
OCTOFIST and HELLHOUND
(ON MY TRAIL) coming to the east coast?
we're shooting for a spring tour that should be touching
down in nyc and, hopefully hitting other cities. when
we're over there, we hope to record a collaboration with
hellhound and sarge
which will eventually be out on cse.
making things worse vol. 1 (the remix record) is almost
done, we've got nine of ten tracks done. bands remixed
exploding motives symphony orchestra, triple
nipple, we are killing phantoms, dirtwolf,
yumi tree brass, title,
down that science pole.
we're still on the lookout for artists to remix, so if
you're interested, wing us an e-mail at octofist at dieyoung
and finally, octofist gets some press:
back when we were on tour, we got written up by the portland
mercury's andrew miller:
OCTOFIST, SLEEPWALKER, BLOWNUPNIHILIST (Grand Central
Bowl, 808 SE Morrison) In an ideal marriage of artist
and venue, Octofist--whose sensory-overloading compositions
feel like a bowling ball rolled between the ears--plays
an alley well suited to its pin-crushing percussion. Currently,
Octofist has only one disc, the recently re-released Buy
One Get One, to its credit, but by the end of the year
it will unleash the remix project Making Things Worse
and Die Hard, Die Young, an OutKast-style, double-solo-album
from members Slatkin and Noski. For the band's fans, that
means plenty of previously unheard pulsing beats and guttural
rumbles, with electronic blurts and blasts to spare.
die young: two albums by octofist" a double cd solo release
featuring an album by slatkin (die hard) and an album
by noski (die young). the bulk of these songs were recorded
between march 2002 and august 2003.
worse" a remix album featuring octofist remixing songs
yumi tree brass, we are killing phantoms, the
exploding motives symphony orchestra, and others.
if you are interested in having us remix one of your songs,
of a breakdown" a two cd set featuring the songs we recorded
late-winter/early-spring '03 in NYC while both of us were
basically going insane. these epic tracks are some of
the best songs we made.
