PHT - For Mass Consumption LP/CS are OUT NOW on ILR

You can run but you can't hide, especially if you have any of the new PHT gear. It's brighter than an enormous door slamming in the depths of hell.

PIG HEART TRANSPLANT - For Mass Consumption LP w/ download (LUNGS-059)
PIG HEART TRANSPLANT - For Mass Consumption CS w/ download (LUNGS-059C)
  Pig Heart Transplant is the alter ego of Jon Kortland, one half of the men that comprise the surgical Powerviolence duo Iron Lung. Like Iron Lung, Pig Heart Transplant delivers both a vicious beating and violent outcome, however the operating methodology is an entirely different animal; slow, churning, industrial, electronic, painfully percussive, a bureaucratic nightmare of State Power with gears grinding the individual into a hallow shell, perfectly molded into one of Them. This is 1984.
  For Mass Consumption is composed of 28 tracks, each approximately 44 seconds long, each song title a 4 letter word, structured in a perfectly palatable way for optimum group adoption and mindless adherence to common purpose. Electronic manipulation, no wave guitar noise, abrasive hammering and eerie synthetic ambience imbue the listener with the seedy malaise of manipulation on a societal scale.  One might recognize the pulverizing brutality of early Swans on tracks like ‘Film’ or ‘Pigs’, the pulsing throb of Brighter Death Now and IRM on ‘Coma’ or even Robert McNaugton’s soundtrack work for Henry: Portrait Of Serial Killer on ‘1970’ or ‘1980’.
  Without doubt a horrifying work of aural terror, For Mass Consumption is the logical result of a culture bent on banal conformity and the futile struggle against its domination. Iron Lung Records (LP and Cassette versions) is pleased to bring this tormented future vision into the present in collaboration with 20 Buck Spin (CD version).

 In addition to these we have a limited long sleeve PHT shirt, TOTAL CONTROL long sleeves, some BLAZING EYE 7"s and warehouse finds of the PHT - Weapon 7" and VAE VICTIS - Ugly Reflection LP. All available in our STORE located at

Thank you and good day.

1st track of the new NUDITY LP coming up on ILR

You know we like to keep people guessing as to what will come next on our fine imprint. Olympia's NUDITY has been around for a few years now and have had a 12" on Discourage and a few self released CD-R's that were all great. They have finally arrived at proper full length album and let me tell you, they have never sounded better. From the current and past minds of TIGHT BROS FROM WAY BACK WHEN, HYSTERICS and SEX VID members. Lace up for the trip...
