NOW AVAILABLE! two brand new tapes from the mangled mind and electronics of Peter Keller (Unser Verhängnis, Bacillus, Condo Horro, etc.).
Mt030 Dosenöffner “Push For Signal” c60 + download
the duo of Peter Keller (aka Unser Verhängis, Scholl, Condon Horro, Bacillus) and Casey Chittenden Jones creates evolving textures of modular noise ranging from the harsh to the understated. an intriguing collection of improvised sounds captured live.
mt031 SCHOLL “Angesichts Konstanter” c60 + download
augmented debut release by this new project from Peter Keller (Unser Verhängnis, Condo Horro, Dosenöffner, Bacillus, ad infinitum). repetitive noise for a paranoid dancefloor that doesn’t exist.
Hello everyone! Here’s a doozy of an update for you. TWO new releases as well as “this machine…” shirts reprinted and in more sizes (XS and XL)!
mt028- RIEN “the grey tape” c40
the sound of implosion, of sound eating itself. we hear what is left behind.
stellar static noise (and sub sonic) minimalism from this prolific swedish provocateur.
mt029- VERHALTEN “corrupted structures v.2” c60
Second in a continuing series of releases for Verhalten. Distorted rhythms are woven with crackling walls of noise and syncopated sine waves pushing the further reaches of the audio spectrum. An exercise in tonality, texture and repetition. A minimalist exploration of the structures humanity creates to its own detriment.
Cassettes, downloads and shirts are all available now from Modern Tapes.
artist copies are enroute and will be available at live performances and online from them soonly.
After much waiting and a couple delays the new Volhnn and Unser Verhängnis tapes are available.
mt023 Volhnn “artefact” c60 limited edition of 15
cold and bleak ambient noise wall project of this French provocateur, otherwise known by his Chier alias.
mt024 Unser Verhängnis “Peace Is A Lasting Legacy When The Earth Is A Silent Grave” 2xc60 limited edition of 15
Grim, ambient noise walls for the contemplation of our undoing. double cassette from this project of the ever prolific Peter Keller aka Condo Horro.
packaged in aluminum boxes with photocopied artwork and insert along with a download code and “this machine kills fascists” sticker.
more in the pipeline for 2018
Hey good people of the internet, i made some shirts and stickers for us electronic music/modular nrrrds out there. they express a sentiment i adapted from Woody Guthrie’s guitar back in 1941 when he was singing protest songs against wealthy and racist americans not seeming to have any problem with what was happening in Germany/Europe at the time. Feel free to draw parallels without hyperbole, please.
The money made from selling said shirts and stickers are going to Life After Hate, an organization that provides an exit strategy for people who are involved in many of the white supremacist subcultures in the US, they are the only non-profit i could find who does this. good for them.
here is a link to order.

Preorders have started, preview some tracks and get your order in here:
they’re handling the vinyl on their own Micromort label, you can get that HERE
so, many of you have noticed that the new Froe Char Lp and Unur cassette are released but not available for mailorder from MT. Yeah. Sorry about that. You see, MT is a one person operation and i am rather far away from my tapes and records currently. HERE IS THE SOLUTION!!!
you can order the Froe Char Lp in the US from the kind, wonderful folks at permanent records in chicago by clicking THIS LINK
you can still get it in Europe from Spielzeug Muzak
Both the Unur and Froe Char releases are also available in the US from Heaven Street Records in Brooklyn, Laurie’s Planet Of Sound in chicago and End Of An Ear in Austin, Tx. Their websites aren’t the easiest to mailorder from but an email or phone call will get you taken care of. they are all lovely people. tell them i say “hi!”
in Europe you can find our stuff at WOOL-E-SHOP in Gent, Belgium and the amazing TRANSFORMER in Vienna, Austria.
Regular mailorder will resume in May and hopefully by the time i leave again i’ll have someone in line to help with the mailorder for the rest of the summer. sorry for the confusion and complications. thank you as always for your continued support of the music i make and love!
Froe Char and Unur will be on tour in Europe Feb20-Mar07. Bring them vegan treats, hugs, bionade, beer, some whiskey and most of all, every single one of your friends!

Friends, today we find the digital release (tapes coming in a week or so) of the follow-up to Unur’s two previous Modern Tapes Eps/Genetic Music 12″. This is the first proper full length to come from this nomadic one person band. 13 new songs of further evolved post-wave noir, created from an eclectic mix of vintage and modern analogue synthesizers washed with a haze of ever increasing guitar buzz. This is the next step.
European Tour with Froe Char February-March 2014 details SOON.
