VO + AVOLA
My pal Vo and I collaborated in the name of friendship.
Vern Avola + DEAD
Dead's newest album, Raving Drooling, features guest appearances by Creston Spears (Harvey Milk), Joe Preston (Thrones, Harvey Milk, High On Fire), Hirofumi Uchino (Defektro), Veronica Avola (That's me!) and MORE! Out April 1, 2020.
DEAD in collaboration with Veronica Avola. Recorded by Toshia Kasai at Sound Of Sirens, LA in 2015.
EMS + JEM
Vern Avola, known for her synth wizardry in PRIZEHOG, is joined here by Jem of Australian bruisers DEAD for 31 minutes of deep space exploration and skull excavation. EMS augments her usual electronic arsenal with sparse and effective percussion for what can only be described as ritualistic friendship questing of the highest order. -SGG
Two mainstays of the Portland synth underground - EMS & Jeph Nor - explore the limits of modular synthesis on Live At Volt Divers, recorded on a freakishly nice Saturday evening in the gloomy occult interior of the Lovecraft Bar. -Forest Punk
'It's hard to know what else to say, other than repeat what we've always said, Prizehog should be adored, they should be worshipped the way Harvey Milk and Boris and the Melvins are, cuz maybe at one point, Prizehog were simply kids aping their heroes, aspiring to the sludge-y genius and twisted outsider metal of those other groups, but as hard as it may be for some folks to believe, Prizehog, might have outheavied, and outweirded, and outgeniused those masters, and become masters themselves, masters of fucking alien prog-doom, long haired, psych sludge, dirge-drone, damaged art pop. Fuck yeah.'

Avola Remix Of STOLLER
I had the honor of doing a remix of a track off of this fantastic album in celebration of the re-pressing!
Avola Remix of BEAST (Daniel Menche and Friends)
BEAST "You've Got Rabies On Your Breath!" was originally offered on Adult Swim Noise Comp and now remastered and remixed by several sonic architects of destruction. If you got your rabies shot already you can still blast this beast.....if not......you've been warned! CRANK IT!
