SACRED HOOP- Runny Poop – Vinyl Reissue – Out Now!

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

This a remastered for vinyl reissue of Sacred Hoop’s original demo tape, originally distributed only on cassette back between ’94-’96. This re-issue also includes the never before released instrumental of Jedi-Subterranean, making it 8-songs total along with the original 7. These songs were written and recorded in the Bay Area and Arizona between ’93 and ’94 with Esoniq 16-plus and ASR-10 production by Vrse Murphy, delusional rhymes by Luke Sick and cuts by both; all recorded on a Tascam 688 8-track analog cassette recorder and mixed to DAT tape; and all heavily influenced by golden era hip-hop from ’87-’92. Each cover was individually designed and hand-screen-printed with unique colors and backgrounds under SH Duchamp-toilets logo by Eric Kneeland of Black Stamp Press, making each cover a one-of-a-kind piece of art. The record-label art was drawn by Matt Loomis and taken from a Sacred Hoop show flyer from 1999. Also included are a two-sided full-color photo collage sleeve of the crew and cohorts from back in the day and an envelope full of secret messages [like a unique letter hand-typed and signed by members of the Hoop among other goodies], and the envelope has been screen-printed with images from the Tascam 688 instruction manual.

Origins of Gurp #3 – The Disturbers “Anansi Spider”

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Sorry for lagging on this series things have been hectic between being a new parent, work, and life in general. Anyway, this time around I am focusing on the first release by Luke Sick’s side project The Disturbers entitled “Anansi Spider”. I ordered this tape from the ATAK catalog seeing it listed as a Luke Sick solo endeavor. At the time I was listening to the first three Sacred Hoop releases constantly and had to have it.
It quickly went into heavy rotation and led me to becoming friends with Luke after yelling Dirt Town continuosly during a performance at Maritime Hall for Cues record release party.  After which we smoked weed on P-Minus’ roof. The album itself is exactly what it is billed as, a punk rock mc’s four track practice tape. Some of these songs you may recognize. “Crampin ya Action” was reworked for Sacred Hoop’s Go Hogwild album, “Saddness” morphed into “DSL” from Sleepover, and “Gillian” has gotten a new life on Grand Invincible’s latest album Cold Hand In the Dice Game. Here you get to hear them in raw form with different production. Other favorites of mine are “Small Axe” a duet with Bob Marley, “Deadicated” with Z-MAN, and “Battery Chuckers” which became a staple in the Hoop’s live show.

Tape rip courtesy of the man himself, Luke Sick, enjoy and spread it around.

Gurp City, the most dedicated and underrated on the whole coast. Gurp Fest next week errrryyyyy
