Jon Spencer and Matt Verta-Ray, the men known as Heavy Trash, never thought that anyone could be watching or listening, let alone recording, when they perpetrated these middle-of-the-night flip-outs, improvisations, instrumentals, and dangerous experiments in unchecked soul exposition and naked desire. Had they known the tape was rolling, we would never have this demented document of darkness and decay. But their demons have come to light, and you are now invited to dance through the dusky shadows of a musical group on the edge. This is pure Heavy Trash. This is Noir!
WARNING: Noir! is not for the weak, the uninitiated, for dabblers, or dilettantes. Seriés Aphōnos has gone to special pains to ensure that this record will never be a hit. You cannot give the people what they want, nor can you give this record back.
Order now from our online store.

Last week we released the Zarelli album “Soft Rains”, an epic musical interpretation of the recording of Leonard Nimoy’s narration of a Ray Bradbury story. Five days later, Mr . Nimoy sadly passed away. We decided to go ahead and release the video (by Mark Warrington) which was slated to premiere on Mojo and Vevo today, as we think it is a fitting tribute to the inimitable presence of the great man. We hope you agree.
Head over to Mojo to see it , and read more: http://www.mojo4music.com/19252/watch-cosmic-tribute-star-treks-leonard-nimoy/

Happy release day Zarelli!
“an unsettlingly candy-coated trip into electronic unreality” **** MOJO.
“Unlikely, unsettling and engaging in equal measures” – 8/10 UNCUT.
“A genuinely affecting work” – **** SHINDIG!
Featuring the wondrous voice of Leonard Nimoy narrating Ray Bradbury’s Martian Chronicle ‘There Will Come Soft Rains’, this is an epic and brilliant musical interpretation by Zarelli (aka Carwyn Ellis, the man behind the score for the Edwyn Collins film ‘The Possibilities Are Endless’, and the main vein in Colorama). The apocalypse has never sounded so good.
