We care what you think.

We are not playing with Dismember now.
Some family issues came up.

All other shows are still on.

Monday, October 20, 2008


the 12" MLP should be out any day now.
i'm sending out the art for the 7" ep TODAY.
hope it will be out for our show with walls, but that's pretty wishful thinking.

we are playing with dismember in french canada on friday.
we are playing november first at fucked up's new 2xlp release weekend.
we are playing with walls in boston 11/14 and nyc 11/15.

you can hear a new song here

next month's MRR is going to have a feature on mind eraser as a guest column. it was supposed to be an interview but it became something a little different. anyway, there will also be a united mutation interview in that issue.

here's us meeting paul speckmann from MASTER. they were awesome.

for the digital dimension....

hello - after some discussion, it was decided that this (blogspot) would be the best and least obnoxious way for communicating with the outside world. i hope that we can keep a running list of upcoming shows, as well as provide answers to the same 3 questions we keep getting asked over and over. if you need to speak directly to one of us - please use christophercorry(AT)gmail(DOT)com.

current info --

gigs -
  • weekend w/ sex/vid during their summer tour
  • something in canada?
  • etc.

releases -
  • new recordings are finished. mixing is under way. new vinyl this summer/fall(?) on youngblood & clean plate.
  • the collaborative release with fucked up has been completed, however due to numerous contractual agreements and other litigious paper work with the signatures of both groups, as well as other groups that members of these groups are a part of, the release is indefinitely shelved as we're unsure of how it can be legally released. please do not contact either band regarding this release. we have private consults at 2 different law firms specializing in different types of law practice reviewing our affairs and trying to best determine how this music can be made available to consumers.

bootlegged - so far we have not been bootlegged again (in 2008).
