Dude... Quit short changing this part.

Obv. the Chicago PRF BBQ was a blast (no shocker, right?). Looks like there is some video floating around, so once we pair that with the (excellent) audio that MattE has provided i'll post that here. OK! Neat.

Other things i'd like to post here, WE GOT VINYL:

Trust me the pictures do not do this justice.
If you are a main person of the vinyl thing, then please consider picking up a copy.
Shipping out just as soon as I restock on mailers.

(We have cds too, but we've had those for awhile.)

As per normal, order on the bandcamp.

Also, if for some reason you don't like streaming stuff on bandcamp or the spotify or whatever the record is on soundcloud now too. Neat.

What else?
Second record is being mixed... oh, and we'll be playing PRF Louisvile with Jordan filling in on drums as well. There's more news too, but I don't want to say a damn thing until it's confirmed.

oh! if for some reason you were waiting to get a copy of The Enemy of Everyone, i'm sending out a bunch today and tomorrow, so it'd be a great time to pick one up.

If not, that's cool too.

Here's Tony with the back cover:

Just listened to the (near final) mixes of record #2. HOLLLLEEEEEE CRAP! We're excited.
Can't wait until we can share it with you guys.

Oh. Actual news.
On second guitar for the Secret Friends set at PRFBBQLou will be none other than the mighty Erica of the band Motherfucker.

Cool? Yeah. Pretty damn cool.
Thank you for your continued interest and patience.

vinyl available at PRF Distro now too.

Downloads are now free/pay what you want. Records still available at "the nice price" from the PRF Distro, plus... you can pick up releases from other awesome bands. Cool!

It is!
Not just the TV show, but the books (especially the books!) and the movies as well. The whole mythos if you will.

However, I don't think you have to know the material to get something out of it.
I hope not anyway.

Hello! This is Eat the Rude, the third song off of the Art of Murder. Tony Ash also provides some “oooh oooh” action on the chorus, in addition to his normal low end badassery.

Anyway, this was premiered on Friday on Preemptive strike, and is now available to stream on your computing style device. What a country!

this is Chair of Antlers. It is the last song on the Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends album - the Art of Murder.

There's some extra stuff on here too, that weirdo bleep/blorp intro is a thingamagoop and I did a kind of low key organ track somewhere in there too. Buzz Osborne (along with Tony, Toshi and myself) does backup vocals on this one too, but it's just the word "CHAIR", which I think is hilarious.

Listeners of Live from the Barrage may have heard this number on Friday's show. It's the album closer, but there are still a few others that aren't up to stream yet. What? OK.

Normal rules apply, you can get the whole album for $5 digital right now, pre-order for vinyl, and cds are now shipping immediately.

CHAIR!!!

Forgot to mention this one... Wound Man is up to listen to.
Image
As heard on ALL THE ROCK (A-Z) (Aka: El Protoolio's show)

Probably going to chill a bit before making the last four streamable, we still have a couple months before we get vinyl anyway.

There's a really fantastic review up at How Much Longer Must We Tolerate Mass Culture as well, which is just... wow. Very, very nice.

Also, in other conflict of interest news: we're doing a set at PRF BBQ West 2016. Jordan from Reptoid filling on drums again.

The whole thing is available to listen to at the mothership.

I won't link it, but you can find it on spotify and myspace and napster and all of that crap.
It's up on all the normal places you can find that kinda thing.

CDs ship immediately, Vinyl will be arriving in late June and ships immediately.

Some very nice things said about it, we're glad some of you dig it as much as we do.
Seriously, thanks.

oh man, been awhile since I posted anything to this.
There was like a tour, another 3 or 4 shows. Nice reviews, you know... the normal thing I guess.
Dang.

ok, well here is some new news (like from this morning):
Hello, there is a new Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends songs on the excellent new compilation:
UNPRESIDENTED: DIY vs. Donald Trump.
Our song is called “Enough Talk” and is about backing up talk with action, it does not appear on any other release
Here are the details about the compilation, which you should buy RIGHT NOW/
From DJ, one of the main organizers of this project, and also part of Unintimidated: Wisconsin Bands Against Scott Walker.
“This 27-song download-only compilation can exist in your digital library for a mere $10, which we donate to Planned Parenthood and local Milwaukee soup kitchens. We don't profit off the deeds of our shithead leaders.
Play it LOUD and share it on! Thank you.”
Please consider supporting this excellent direct action
Freedom of Speech is not the exclusive domain of white nationalists.


Go pick up a copy! Planned Parenthood and Soup Kitchens people.
Also: our song isn't a skull crusher of riffs, it's kind of a heavy folk song (?) so set expectations accordingly.

Also: lots more to come. Stay tuned for Protons and Electrons.

Re: Conan Neutron/Dale Crover/Tony Ash - "Conversion" Single

Postby cneutron on Sun Aug 06, 2017 2:23 pm

hi everybody, long time no talk?
(in this format anyway)
Alright so in celebration of Bandcamp's day of action for Trans Rights, we'd like to present you with "Conversion" a NeutronFriends song sung by our friend Ashley Altadonna from The Glacial Speed Conan Neutron-Guitar, Tony Ash-Bass, Dale Crover-Drums, Sean Kirkpatrick of Nervous Curtains-Piano, Moog, Synth.

A powerful song sung about the horrifying "conversion therapy" process.

This was released in conjunction with bandcamps day of action for trans rights, 100% of the proceeds for this song go to the Transgender Law Center, a nonprofit organization that works tirelessly to change law, policy, and culture for the more equitable. Please enjoy, consider purchasing a copy and remember to support equal rights for all.

(Oh yeah, there are a couple of other tunes on there as well, and you can buy the whole Secret Friends digital discography for under $6 this weekend. Also going to the Transgender Law Center

Also, a bunch of new Secret Friends stuff coming up soon. )

Re: Conan Neutron/Dale Crover/Tony Ash - Protons and Electro

Postby cneutron on Sun Feb 25, 2018 10:44 pm

Hello! This is "A Litany of Grievances” the new single from Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends (Me: guitar/Vocals, Tony Ash: Bass, Dale Crover: Drums). This is Atom 1, the first volume of a 12 volume series called “Protons and Electrons”. Each Protons and Electrons volume features a great band on the B-side that either plays in Secret Friends, Records with Secret Friends or has some heavy relevance to how Neutron Friends came to be. In this case the other band is Trophy Wives, their first release in quite some time. Trophy Wives features the low end majesty of Mr. Tony Ash. Tony and I were label mates with previous bands and toured on multiple occasions. If I am the brain of the Secret Friends, he is absolutely the heart. It would probably exist without him, but I wouldn’t want it too. As per always the incredible Toshi Kasai is in the producer’s chair on this one, engineering and mixing as well, and in this case Cristy Joy provided some excellent background vocals.

The B-Side song: Trophy Wives - “Tomorrowland” was always a favorite of mine live, and it’s a pleasure to have it associated with this series. It’s an ass kicker.

Bob Weston of Chicago Mastering Company mastered and cut the lacquer.

This 7” is available for immediate purchase at $8 each, each one comes in a limited edition hand screened jacket by Chris Williams of Plastic Flame Press, shipping later in March.
You can also purchase a digital version through bandcamp or through any of the usual ways one does that (as of later this week).

To say that this is a massive undertaking is an understatement of the highest order. It has been a grueling and involved process that is now just beginning to pay off with the actual release. Take all of the hassles of one release and multiply it by a dozen, and then involve other bands as well… yeah… let’s go ahead and say I have some tales. Yet, this is the way we wanted to present this material to you, as singles… months by months as part of this series.
What you will see is a digital single every month, followed by a physical single of the same song the next one.

If you wish you can purchase a “Friends of the Neutron” subscription and guarantee yourself a copy of each one as well as copies of the entire back catalog digitally, a custom t-shirt and another fun surprise.

Man, it's been a long time since I bumped this thread, huh?

Anyway. Here you go.
