By the unholy tendrils of cthulhu's beard, I have sucked at posting on here. Apologies, to the hypothetical people who care.  Someday I shall rectify this, hopefully soon!

Tour Dates and a new Demo Clip!

I can't wait to hit the road with Ming & Ping and Mike Diva.  We'll carve a swath of dimensional distortion the likes of which has never before scarred the face of the west coast. :)

Please help spread the word by posting to twitter, fb, tattooing your face, whatever!

Teaser clip from a new song I'm working on:

In this track, I'll finally be living out my dream of singing in bad Japanese. To make things even more meta, the Japanese lyrics I'm singing are a translation of an Engrish phrase from a Dragon Ball Z poster I used to have.

I've done my best to live by those words.

20120331: Music video for "Never Ender" and Part I of the NVR-NDR comic!

This music video for the song "Never Ender" was shot and edited by Bao Vo Creative. The footage comes from the 2010 recording of the NVR-NDR live album Extreme Hyper Impact. However the music in the video is the "studio" version of the track which was released on the legendary compilation "Spring Cleaning Music: Vol. 1" by Robo! Robotica. This is the first ever NVR-NDR music video!

I am also very happy to finally present the digital incarnation of the first installment of the NVR-NDR comic. A collaboration between my brother Evan Shechet, myself, and Ted Nava.

Further installments coming soon! Check the NVR-NDR "story" section for updates and a new bio written by Liz Ohanesian.

Sign up for the new Magicore monthly newsletter for a list of all the free albums we post each month, album of the month picks, news, downloads, free stickers and more!

And finally, most exciting of all:

NVR-NDR will be doing a short West Coast tour with Ming & Ping and Mike Diva in early June! Stay tuned for more info on that.

10232011: Long overdue update.

It's been way too long since I updated on here. I got a full time job and finding time to work on NVR-NDR has been pretty spotty. However I'm certainly grateful to have a job right now!

Despite that, there has been a lot going on. I collaborated with Kroyclub & Kool Skull to create the track "Brutal Falafel".

available for free download here:

NVR-NDR was featured on the FREAKING AWESOME podcast Solipsistic Nation. Which rooled. You can check out that episode here:

solipsistic NATION No. 257: NVR-NDR, Live

Robot Circus, a totally rad weekly radio show / podcast hosted by everyone's favorite cyborg Johan Ess
, also dropped some NVR-NDR beats on their 6th episode.

Johan Ess presents Robot Circus - Episode 6

Here's a bit of footage from the show with Bubblegum Octopus and Vyncent Flaw.

Big thanks to Beauty is Pain.

Hopefully I will update here more often!
