Out Into The Snow (Team Love Records). Review by Carl F Gauze.
Despite a discography that would make you expect a persona along the lines of a reincarnated Captain Beefheart, in conversation, Arrington de Dionyso is polite and eager to communicate his artistic mission in as understated a manner as possible.

Matthew Moyer finds himself in the same concert hall as Leonard Cohen, holy clown, dour prophet, borscht belt crooner, and true legend — in Tampa, Florida, no less.
Kicking off Ink 19‘s new series, Labels We Love, S D Green talks to ZE Records co-founder Michel Esteban about defining a sound and establishing a label during New York’s 1970s creative zeitgeist, and the resurrection of the label that was once home to Lydia Lunch, Suicide, and Kid Creole & the Coconuts.
