Atom now 2 is available to listen to and purchase!
Secret Friends is myself on guitar and vocals / Tony Ash on bass and Dale Crover of the Melvins on drums. Toshi Kasai engineers and produces. This song trends towards the poppy/hooky side of the band and is called "Hate Secretary"

Quivers are a west coast PRF band that is made up of a bunch of awesome people from a bunch of other awesome bands. (Ex-Boyfriends, Amscray, CharmlesS) We've been playing shows and making records with each other for forever.Their sound fits nicely between Archers of Loaf, Superchunk and Chavez and I thiiiiiiiink, this might be a new release.

In any case, check it out. They don't ship until the 1st... but the SF Secret Friends show will be the 7" release show as both bands are playing.

Atom 3 of the Protons and Electrons series is now available to listen and order. As always: Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends is Conan Neutron, Tony Ash and Dale Crover (of (the) Melvins​) providing the A-Side: RECANT! and on the B-side is Mr. Rick Valentin of Thoughts Detecting Machines​ (and Poster Children​... of course) with Alllies.

Like all of the Protons and Electrons series, this is a digital single, paired with a physical 7" release that is available to mailorder. There will be 12 of these in total.

RECANT! is riff heavy rumination on heresy and the process of heresy becoming fact.

Rick contributes an excellent guitar track to a future Protons and Electrons release, but most importantly he is part of this series because of what Thoughts Detecting Machines is.

A one man band in the sense of being a self-contained live and recording unit, not in the "bass drum strapped to back and cymbals between legs" sort of way, the way Thoughts Detecting Machines operates has been an inspiration to Team Neutron Friends.

Find a way to say "yes" to awesome opportunities, strip things down to their barest essentials and challenge yourself to dig deeper, try something different and let go of familiar anxieties.

In any case, you can listen to it here and you can order the 7" as well. Thanks!

I tried to hit the ol' PRF first, but the site wasn't behaving... so here it is!

anybody home?
No?
ok! Well either way here is Atom #4 of Protons and Electrons

The Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends side is a song called "Paved Age", which is a song that is ostensibly about the founding of the Interstate Highway System.

The other side features PRF Heroes NONAGON, with their song Saffir-Simpson.
Here's what I wrote about it:
Atom 4 of Protons and Electrons features the inimitable of Chicago, a scrappy and joyous noiserock/post-punk trio whose heart and tenacity have been as inspiring as their songs. A particularly blisteringly and badass set in 2014 that reminded me of everything I loved about making music was the clinching factor for putting together what would become Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends. I'm not saying you can blame them DIRECTLY, but... partial blame, sure. -Conan


Like all of the Protons and Electrons series, this is a digital single, paired with a physical 7" release that is available to mail order. There will be 12 of these in total. As per normal, free to listen to... $2 for a download and you can preorder the limited edition 7" (only 300 ever!) all at the link.

"Paved Age" is my favorite cut from this project so far. Keep it up.
