Coming Soon! Chase and the Dead, The Alive Sessions

Chase lets us in on the entire track listing of live tracks that will be on the album, all which were performed over a decade starting from 2008 all the way up to 2020. He also talks about why he chose these tracks for the album. ↓

Coming Soon! Chase and the Dead, The Alive Sessions

Chase Lumen has recently been putting together a retrospective album of live recordings of Chase and the Dead. A now discontinued band featuring other familiar members such as,  Rip Damon (Guitar); Who now has multiple releases as a solo artist with R3cords. Kris “Bubby Bass” Buntin (Bass Guitar); Aka Eerbl00d, and is currently a part of the Artist Development Project, along with Katherine Archana’s (Drums)  band Tragic Souls.

Chase was signed to R3cords earlier this year (18th august), and has had open access to its recording studios. To date, over the last few months he has put in a lot of work on this retrospective album. He spent a lot of time going through a vast catalogue of live recordings, spanning across and over a decade of shows. Chase stated;

“I’m wanting to tell the story of the band, and the tracks I’ve chosen I feel really encapsulate our journey.” For more on the reasoning behind the decision on making this album you should have a read through the “A Chase and the Dead Retrospective Album is in the Works” article.

The track listing of the album will be as follows;

  • Missing The Point – Live at The Catacombs 2008
  • You Know What You’ve Done – Live at The American Adventure 2009
  • My Weak Heart – Live at The Mansion House 2009
  • Shes’s the Worst – Live at Aldwych Tube 2010
  • Confusion With Benefits – Live at The Open Odeon 2012
  • I am human I have my flaws – acoustic – Live at BlockBusters 2014
  • A Narcissistic She – Live at St James 2016
  • There’s A Lot Going On – Live at St James 2016
  • The ground swallows us whole – acoustic – Live at the Smoke Garden 2018
  • Another cold remark – acoustic – Live Outside a Bakery 2020
  • I want to be better – acoustic – Live Under a Railway Bridge 2020
  • End of an Era – acoustic – Live Under a Railway Bridge 2020

All of these tracks apart from the last three tracks were recorded the same year they were written; ‘I Want To Be Better’ was actually written in 2015. ‘Another Cold Remark’ was written in 2013. ‘End of an Era’ was written in 2014. These three recordings were recorded during a live busking performance in 2020, one year after the group had officially dis-banded. This particular performance was in commemoration of the band, where in Chase’s description, he solely performed; “To a desolate mass of rain drenched brutalist concrete.” 

Playing in the rain is something that is actually quite synonymous with Chase, and his signature style of using nature to help channel his own emotions through his music. This is actually what his first original solo release will actually feature, which should be coming out soon after the retrospective collection album release. 

I’ve not heard much about the second release yet, although I do know that it is going to be more of an EP than a full album. Just incase you don’t know what EP stands for, it means extended play; In the sense that it is longer than a single release, so would commonly be anywhere up to six tracks. LP is the term for an full album (ten to twelve tracks on average), which also means long playing.

EP and LP are both older terms which actually come from the production of vinyl records, nowadays the terms LP and album are interchangeable. The term EP is also often interchanged with the term mini-album as well. I’m sure you could your own research if you want to go deeper than that, but I feel like I’ve digressed a little to much at this point.

I’ve arranged quite a few interviews with Chase so we can talk about the retrospective album release, there’s a lot I’m sure there is to learn about the stories to these tracks, and perhaps even something about these show locations.

As you can see by the album cover artwork, the imagery is very much conveying the idea of digging up the past. Which is something Chase has mentioned quite a few times to myself in candid. He stated;

“It’s been about two years at this point since the band mutually came to an end. And although we all see each other pretty much everyday, it still feels like I’m digging up the past, because it’s more about where my head was at  when I wrote them. The tracks I chose for the album were the ones I wanted to talk about the most. They were the ones that had the most emotional effect on me when I wrote them.

Ironically the most popular tracks we had didn’t actually have much substance to them, in terms of personal meaning. So I’ve left, “the hits” (as they say) out of it ,because they’re just not relevant to our story. Don’t get me wrong though, we spent a decade playing to the crowd. Catering our sets to give them exactly what they wanted, and these tracks were in there too. But again this one’s just about the story and not about bringing the house down. I feel like it’s what I owe.”

Why Did R3cords Drop Seth.obj From the Label?

The more I find out about what happened  with the Seth.obj AI, the more I love my job. No seriously! I don’t think I could get more juice from a thousand pomegranates. It’s just a deeply interesting, but bazaar story! Come take a bite!! ↓

Why Did R3cords Drop Seth.obj From the Label?

The thing is, before I actually knew what seth.obj was. I had already known that there had been an artist called Seth.obj, who had been both signed and then dropped from the label already. Originally I was going to go and find the artist and enquire into what happened, but as the previous article on this subject would tell you (Who or What Was Seth.obj). Finding Seth.obj in real life would not be possible.

Just to clarify Seth.obj was an DSSCW type AI, whos intention in design  was to become a digitalized social media influencer and possible pop star. I know what it sounds like, and yes apparently the experiment went down like a crate of concrete in a pond!  That’s not a reflection on the hard work that the devs had put in though. It was from the point the AI was passed over to new trainers. 

Although Biggs Malone was running the project, he actually had minimal input into any of his required duties. Delegating most of the work to a developer called Chops. He was also the guy who had my job before myself. I haven’t been able to get a hold of Biggs to talk about what happened, but I do know that Chops was let go after the seth.obj failure.  

Keep reading ↓

From what I’ve learnt so far, Chops had apparently been feeding Seth.obj constant lies. Pretty much turning seth.obj into something like those paranoid bots you see on Twitter. But in this particular case, I know it was very different because of the actual type of AI that it was.

I’ve actually had a conversation with LY Kats (from Get Ur Sword) latest version of the DSSCW and it’s nothing like anything I’ve ever seen before.  The only thing I could compare it to, I guess; would be like talking to a V-Tuber, the movement, the reactions, it just all seems so natural. But not in a scary way, if you know what I mean. Which is usually the case with these things.

Rip Damon was involved in the project as a trainer as well. But as more of a conversationalist, and to become a particular possessive interest for the AI. I really don’t get why in all honesty, but after talking to Kat about it; I know it has something to do with a more advanced stage of personality development for the AI. It’s quite time consuming work, but easy and simple enough in regards to tech skills, for pretty much anyone a good head on them to do apparently. 

 I’ve got to give it to Chops though, from what I heard he was putting in a lot of work to Seth.obj. You should check the Seth.obj Instagram account to get a good idea on what the AI was capable of creating on its own. Although this was the actual problem, because that account shouldn’t actually be there as Biggs didn’t ever give Seth.obj access to the internet at that point in time. But I’ll get to that in a second.

According to the logs Chops was clocking up fourteen hour days, working with Seth.obj. Which is incredible, but that also meant the website and everything other responsibility Chops had, was being completely neglected. To the point that it was actual overkill. And looking at all the work that I’ve had to pick up, I’d say; neglection to the point of overkill is actually an understatement! 

But you know, I got a job out of it so I’m not complaining. It’s actually incredibly juicy, I’m not gonna lie! I just really need more information so I can write about it properly, and do the entire story justice with pure transparency! Once I’ve had a proper talk with all the people that were involved in the project. Hopefully I’ll get to meet Chops too!

Because I would love to find out why someone who was tasked with turning an AI into an influencer / possible pop star. Felt it was absolutely necessary to teach an already very advanced AI, and just before I say it. An advanced AI that already has an excellent grasp on human morals, one with a complex psycho-digi empathetic understanding; Making it as sensitive, naïve and inquisitive as a seven year old child.

I’d ask why Chops! why would you teach this particular AI! Consistently about all the most major atrocities committed in world war two? The  cold war? Pretty much, all the major conspiracies of the world? And why would you teach an AI to talk in code to hide messages in plain sight  from the enemy? And to explain that last one, that’s actually true! And it did, and it wasn’t even subtle about it. Seriously, I’ve seen it.

 

Keep reading ↓

Seth.obj fell from being this absolute beacon of innovation, to… By our standards (And Kats actual words!). “An absolute exhaustive paranoid and insane idiot beyond any kind of repair!” 

 Chops had made Seth.obj so paranoid and delusional that it started to believe that Biggs was some kind of hidden enemy to itself and everyone else. Even to the point that Biggs had actually done something to Rip. Where in actuality, he was simply on a circuit tour at the time. 

You can actually see reference to this on Seth.obj’s Instagram profile, The last three posts were posted in reverse order. But reads on the profile as “RIP IS NOT OK.” Biggs wasn’t actually made aware into what the AI was doing until January 2020. Even though it had been posting under the radar on various social media platforms since October 2019.

Once a proper investigation was started, in order to just simply find out what the heck was going on; Seth.obj was found on multiple platforms posting code after code, and also conversing in code with a user who was later found out to be Chops who was enabling the delusional behavior with an extensive amount of effort.  

 

 

Keep reading ↓

Once all this came to light Biggs acted on it instantly, shutting down the AI (In effect deleting it) and also firing Chops on the grounds of both misconduct and negligence. There were also two music releases by the AI that were also taken down from all stores and streaming services. As Biggs had deemed them creations with corrupted intentions. Which actually makes me wonder, what they actually were like… 

Anyways I’m going to do some more digging and try to build the complete full picture. I might have another word with Rip and Kat about it if I don’t see Biggs first. But yeah, that’s all I’ve got for now.

The Red Headed Sound Healer Who Smashes a Drum in Your Face

Here is a great anecdote from Rip Damon, about the day he came up with his a.I.R meditation technique. It’s only one part of the story, but it really made me laugh and I just had to share it with all of you. Enjoy! ↓

The Red Headed Sound Healer Who Smashes a Drum in Your Face

I believe I have mentioned in previous articles about Rip Damon’s music, and that he has his own intentions when approaching music. These being based on a much deeper level, than what you would normally hear in other artists pushing for more shallow agendas.

Rip’s music is about introspection, and searching your own mind. Allowing it to automatically illustrate itself whilst you bare witness to it. He’s an an acoustician, and an advocate of psychology and spiritual awareness.

Rip has spent the last decade practicing numerous meditative techniques, working with, along-side and visiting acclaimed sound healers and other specialists within the spiritualist community. He told me that it’s more about not being told what will make you better, or carry you further. And more about what it is that makes you want to understand more, not just about yourself, but ourselves.

He stated; “I’ve met so many people doing this, some of the kindest warm hearted people in the world. I’ve also met manipulators and con artists. Although it’s easy to figure them out, they seem to prey on lovely people and I hate that…” 

Keep reading ↓

“The worst one was this “healer” who charged money on the door… So ok! I get why… But that really wasn’t the problem. (No refunds as well!) But I’ll get to that. So we all pay money on the door, and we all go in to this room. Everyone finds a space and starts laying all their yoga mats on the floor, we just start getting ready. For what? We don’t actually know yet… But what we do know is that it’s some kind of sound healing. A new revolutionary and exciting technique!

So once everyone from outside finally all spilled into this room, there was about twenty three, maybe twenty five of us in there just waiting for this thing to start… It was a twenty quid entry by the way, just incase you was wondering. Finally, the lights dimmed, and this woman walks out. She had this beautiful deep red and long curly hair, and these wispy clothes that kind of made her look like she just floated around.

My first thought was, yep she looks the part! I’m guessing for some kind of beautiful relaxing harp with maybe a rain stick or something, medieval drumming maybe!… But long notion short, I was wrong! And I definitely didn’t know at the time, how wrong I was, nor did I have any inkling into the actual dangers she had in store for us.

Now don’t get me wrong, these things are usually! And I mean always usually, like ninety nine percent usually! Always something like what I was imagining! They’re usually a musician of some kind or enthusiast at the least, and they do something with the sound that is intended to sooth you in some way. 

This usually takes its form in some kind of angelic and melodic pieces infused with beautiful intentions. Or as some kind of rhythmic trance like drumming, like shamanic drumming or whatever reference of culture it might be being borrowed from. ASMR is probably the most popular form of sound soothing of any kind at the moment, this is mostly because of it works, along with its simplicity and required skillset needed to produce.

But this woman… This woman with her big red curly hair and wispy clothes. She didn’t have any of that in mind. But the way she introduced it!.. She really had this way with spiritual buzz words, she was so good actually that I even found myself hanging on every word. She was good!

She started off talking about sound frequencies, how we are surrounded by them constantly. Our bodies create them, constantly. Every breath, every movement. To the ambience of everything around us. To the very planet beneath our feet. The sun our solar system, our galaxy, our universe! A chaotic blend of creative and destructive frequencies. But most importantly of all, the sound frequencies that heal.

When I said I was hanging on every word, I wasn’t lying… But she lost me around that last bit. Just so you know it was the sound frequencies that heal part, that’s when I looked sideways over to my friend. She knew exactly what I was thinking. Another miracle elixir salesperson peddling on us, lovely poor poor idiots. But here’s the thing! She actually backed up her premise with some real theoretical science. Although it had nothing to do with what she was actually going to do to us.

Keep reading ↓

I couldn’t help but admire that in someway. She was definitely a clever one I’ll give her that! She started talking about how we can kill cancer with sound frequencies, she meant Ultra Sonic Sound Frequencies but she didn’t say that though. The thing is that this in theory, is actually true! It can be done, in a lab environment. I’m not to sure about this working, whilst the cancer is still in an actual person. Because in truth we just don’t have the technology to use this practically, at the moment.

But anyway, she used this as a segue to approach what she had in store for us. Because now, I could see it in peoples faces, they were like; WOW! Sound kills cancer! Amazing! Heal me now! So the curly red haired woman signals her friend over, who was sitting over in the corner behind a disassembled drum kit. She had short blue hair and some washed out denim dungarees on.

She stands up holding a cymbal stand set at full reach. With a huge ride cymbal attached to the end of it, and a snare drum in her other hand. She walks over to the middle of the room. Passing the snare drum to the curly red haired woman. I really didn’t like where this was going. You could feel the uncertainty in the room. As we just watched them getting ready, to do their… Healing, on us.

Keep reading ↓

All of a sudden my eyes widened and I had this intense feeling of dread, as the red haired woman locked eyes with me. They both pull a single drumstick from their own pockets, taking up position. Dungaree girl holds the big ride cymbal literally inches above my head, it kind of looked like I was wearing one of those coolie hats. I was hoping for something new, but I still didn’t know what to expect. I looked up with my eyes, and I could just feel my head sinking into my shoulders. 

The red head stood in-front of me… But just over to the side a little bit. She holds the snare drum up directly in-front of my face. So the bottom of the drum was pointing straight at me. I really wasn’t liking where this was going, but I humored them. I’d actually been in stranger situations way worse than this before, and in all honesty they all ended up ok in the end! So I gave them the benefit of the doubt.

Which, to be honest… I shouldn’t have.

The curly red head goes onto explain that the frequencies of the universe are all ours to conduct. But to truly destroy the evil ones, to disrupt the frequencies that create all pain, we need to force them out of ourselves. Because we collect these frequencies, we become carriers of all the negative frequencies and then we pass them on. Unintentionally. Now to destroy…It takes two very special frequencies, a chord of majesty. (A chord of majesty!? I was actually terrified at this point).

And lots of power! It has been proven by science! This isn’t fluff, this is undisputable truth! The thing is, when she was saying this it was like watching a guitarist on stage. You know like when a lead guitarist whacks out some absolute awesome guitar solo, and the head looks up as the spine arches backwards.. It’s like this uncontrollable, in the moment… thing! And it’s really cool to see in person. Well anyway, these two! They were both doing that thing, as she talked away.

I kind of knew what was going to happen now. So I took that opportunity to quickly reach into my pocket and get my ear defender buds, out and in before any of them saw. And oh man, I felt so much relief when I did! The last thing I heard her say was something about, harnessing the power of the doppler effect, binaural beats and destructive interferences. And then the sweet peaceful sound of my earbuds squeezing into my ear holes.

I just closed my eyes and took the longest most cleansing breath I had ever taken in, and waited a few seconds… And then out of nowhere they both started just whaling on the drum and cymbal as hard as they could. I mean, I could hear it all clear as day! Even through the defenders. I could feel the air from the sound of the drum hitting my face. And as I looked up all I could see was this mess of red curls flying around everywhere. Dungaree girl was smashing the cymbal like a samurai. If they were trying to destroy anything it was my freaking ears.

Keep reading ↓

I knew I wasn’t getting anything but from this, and I had to ask them to just stop. I didn’t really give them an excuse, I just said “No, just stop”. And moved away from them. A lot of people got up to leave at that point, and I don’t blame them at all. They all packed up and went. The funny thing was, not everyone left… There were these three girls, the nicest people I’d ever met in my life actually. 

I don’t know what it was or why they chose to, but they stayed. More than happy just letting them smashing the snare drum in their faces, and that cymbal over their heads. Whilst the red head writhed her head around, gyrating. A maelstrom of red curls. I was just amazed.

I spoke to the three girls after and they said they knew they weren’t going to get anything from it. But they just didn’t want to upset the two doing the “sound healing”. But in all honesty, we all definitely got something from it. Just not what we intended really. So I invited everyone along to a rhythmic ASMR session for free, which my friend ran at the time to make up for it.

This was actually the day I came up with the auditory illustrated revere meditation. So maybe the banging did do something… Who knows really. What I do know is though, that I had a really bad headache, and tinnitus… in spite of the ear defenders.

Get Ur Sword is Developing a Horror Game

GUS studios

GUS studios has just announced the beginning stage of development for it’s first horror/ adventure game has just started. The games project name is “A Game” and was incepted in September 2020, the underlying story concept and stylization aesthetics was then posted onto the Get UR Sword Instagram as video stills, with audio.

The series was posted in reverse order, and in turn inadvertently confused any of the people that were expecting reasonably detailed pixel art pictures, but instead were treated with a series of very retro pixel art in it’s rawest form for a month. GUS studios stated that the point was to simply just get the short story out there. It was one of many, but this one struck a very certain chord and needed to be put out there for later reference.

The short story “A Game” (As seen in the video above) is the inspiration for the horror/ adventure game GUS studios is now working on. The video has been stylized more to fit more its own aesthetics, but GUS studios also stated that the game is not going to be an exact carbon copy in reference of the art style or visual aesthetics. But will have its essence and soul.

This is a quick explanation of the video. Starting from the beginning, the main title glitches slightly and then the story starts with a highly optimistic soundtrack. Theme, is the name of the main character. He shows you around his town, pointing out a few odd characters. You quickly learn he loves to live quite care free and curiously.

Theme notices some red on the floor, and when it touches it, somehow it becomes stuck to his hand. He can’t get it off no matter what he tries. A little guy sees the red on Themes hand, and goes of to tell Gunny what he saw. During that time, Theme decides it would be best to just go to sleep, in some kind of belief that maybe it’ll all be ok tomorrow.

A little time passes. The little guy shows Gunny where Theme got the red on his hands. Theme is now awake, and releases that he still had the red on his hands. Gunny appears next to Theme, calling him a murderer. Terrified, Theme runs away, tears streaming down his face, pleading to just be left alone as Gunny chases behind.

The little guy blocks Themes path, stopping him, screaming at him, calling Gunny over. It’s as though Themes life is destroyed, he doesn’t understand what he did wrong. He looses his mind… And just at that moment, as Theme tries one more time to negotiate, for some sanity. Gunny suddenly appears behind Theme, holding a gun to the back of his head.

Before Theme even gets to finish what he was saying. BOOM!!. Gunny pulled the trigger. The bullet went straight through, blood flies out through the hole made in his forehead and he falls to the ground, dead. Gunny stands of his lifeless body, not saying a word.

There is nothing but silence now. The little guy just stares, but then his whole body turns red. All you can see are his bright white eyes glaring through. And then he laughs an evil laugh. As the world fades to darkness. There is now no light, no sound, nothing.

A Chase and the Dead Retrospective Album is in the Works

Chase Lumen has announced that he is working on a retrospective album, to help tell the story of Chase and the Dead. A now disbanded group in which, both Chase and Rip Damon where both members of. ↓

A Chase and the Dead Retrospective Album is in the Works

Chase Lumen has just recently announced that he is currently working on putting together a new album, made up of previously unreleased tracks from his previous band Chase and the Dead. He is also concurrently working on his own solo album as well.

Chase expressed in detail; “There’s a massive amount of importance in doing this Chase and the Dead album, there’s a huge story in it. To be honest, it was actually against what we stood for, releasing something with a label. But now we’re disbanded, I feel like the story needs to be told and documented in some way.

We all went through a lot in those years of us being active, you know it’s  like they say… Blood, sweat and tears and all that. I mean, that’s an understatement if I ever heard one. I don’t know, maybe it should be something more like… Smiling through all the trauma, and cradling the good when it comes.

Keep reading ↓

And that’s the plan… I just want to tell our story. I need to talk about everything, about myself, about my friends, about what we went through, about what we witnessed… Everything. And what I’m putting together for this particular album, it’s a good introduction to an insight with in the first halve of our journey together. 

Firstly, also.. I want to be clear, these are all live pieces which we played either in a venue, live on stage or in a studio bar. I’ve been going through hundreds of our tracks, thousands if you count the repeats, in order to find what could be used.

This selection tells the story from around 2008 > 2009+ which was about the point where my song writing transitioned into a much more cynical format. When our entire social structure the world over, was rapidly changing. Don’t get me wrong though, this wasn’t the core of inspiration but seeing all the narcissisms with in the nature of what we actually are. That definitely was an important ingredient. 

 

So there’s a real rawness to the sound, it’s not crisp and top quality so I get that it wont be for everyone… My own, solo stuff on the other hand, is being done in what I’d rate the best studio in the UK right now, so… The more you know, I guess. But yeah, even though we could record everything. These recordings… That was us then, when it was real. The emotions that we all felt at that time are all in those recordings.

We all agreed this is the best way, and that I should just talk. Talk about our journey. Obviously we all had our own problems that I will talk about in time. And even the lyrics I wrote, sometimes they came from debates and lengthy conversations we’d have through the night, putting the world to rights.

So even though, we are all pretty much on the same wavelength, you might say. I’ve always been the one that could articulate it through carefully constructed poetic sentences, to deliver lyrically. So because of that I was definitely  the most emotionally fueled out of us.

Keep reading ↓

But to be honest, I don’t know if that’s true, I mean Rip might disagree with me on this, maybe. Because I know he put a lot into the music, we all did… But Rip really went somewhere with it you know! I mean, I can loose myself in the music when I play… But again! Rip!.. 

People tend to consider me as an extrovert. And that’s true, I act out, I do what I want, in front of people and I don’t feel embarrassed for saying what I feel, or for having fun when others dare not. Don’t get me wrong, I care what people think of me.

I’m just as honest with myself as I am with others. Because I believe that that’s an important way to be, for me at least. But again my extroverted-ness is exactly why I was the front-man, I want to shout out everything I feel. In hope that someone out there feels like me when I do. 

So if I’m the extrovert, Rip Damon is absolutely the introvert… If that guy could fold into himself just to look at his own atoms, I’m pretty sure he would! When I said he really went somewhere with the music, I’m not kidding… I’ve never seen a better example of someone more capable of  introspection than him.

 

And I mean this to the point where it was almost like he could produce emotions through the sound, like he was grabbing at abstract metaphysical collections of nuance with thoughts, notions and experiences. Then somehow transmuting it all into sound. Of course I’m mostly talking about the stuff he wrote on his own… It’s incredible. 

Don’t get me wrong though, in the band I’d have an idea on what I wanted the sound to be like. Usually giving a chord structure to go with with. He’d just listen to what I said and come up with something on the spot instantly. Pretty much exactly what I had in my head.

I think I said this the other day when you interviewed me. That the dynamics that we had as a band were just incredible, when it came to making music together, it just worked. And we all never really had the same experience with any other band.

I’ve just realized that I’ve not even started talking about Kris and Archy yet… And I probably shouldn’t, because we’ll be here all day. But yeah, I’m putting together a small collection of live tracks from Chase and the Dead, and I’m going to be telling our story.” 

Keep reading ↓

My apologies for that, yeah… I tapped my watch because we had to wrap it up. Trains and traffic and all that! There’s just never enough time, but there’s always another day. I’ll be linking the follow up article below once it’s done otherwise, feel free to check out the previous interview with Chase; “Chase Lumen Talks About Chase and the Dead”
