about

This is a collation of disasterpieces over several years of bedroom noodling. some became shuriken "full band" songs, most were left on hard drives undernourished.

as a whole I guess it is a haphazard minefield of guitar opportunities that never got to flourish. Ditties recorded solo on dictaphone/4track/computer/mobile phones etc. It's probably best these remained mainly instrumental demos, there's something about the initial spark of an idea that never gets carried on sometimes. I've had my back turned on this stuff for so long it seems actually kind've "cool" to me now. lo-fi is in again now isn't it? enjoy sifting thru the sketchbook of tonal garbage and songs that might have been. but yet here they are.
-M.R.

ps factual notekeepers, the first track on here is not only the lone number that is performed by all 5 members of the groop, but is also the intro to the first song we ever played. it seemed right to start/fade from that point.

about

Shuriken Brisbane, Australia

5, then 4 kids from Brisbane, ego's and record collections spiraling wildly out of control decide to conquer their own internal logic of indie/rock/art/improv/musick. monumental failure. documents were left behind, wasted gigabytes of files were created + slain. time has no meaning. unlikely to ever be resurrected beyond this digital eulogy. will refrm 4 ATP 10 thou minimum.

Can't make it to far without you reminding
that it's not squared

tragic takes flight over-under-horizon
we lurch to larynx beat (of all-time recital)
they have overborne their continents.
halos crushed under elements
my couplet, a crucial distinction between two modes
I had exactly the same hallucination !!!

Astounding!!! Amazing

there's some horrible business left

Something unpleasant
there's some horrible business left
for him to attend to:
Preservation issues and all of, since that's not very realistic.
also what the scalper situation was like
intrusion against invalid partition monad. invalid partition monad.
partition!
partition I say
she exclaimed "the boat was in peril"
litigation
the familiar discourse of the shaven headed youth
shuriken are an international highway project under asio watchdog wiretap.
