    label: Elevation

    BLOOD MERIDIAN'S THIRD ALBUM, 'LIQUIDATE PARIS!' WAS FINISHED BEFORE IT BEGAN. WHAT STARTED OFF AS RECORDING EXPERIMENTS IN A MOULDY BASEMENT BENEATH A CRACK-INFESTED STREET IN VANCOUVER RESULTED IN NINE UNEXPECTED NEW CUTS FROM THE QUINTET FRESH OFF THE HIGHWAY FROM PROMOTING THEIR SECOND EFFORT, 'KICK UP THE DUST'. 'LIQUIDATE PARIS!' WAS RECORDED IN THE SPRING OF 2007 BY BAND MEMBERS MATTHEW CAMIRAND (GUITAR/VOX) AND JOSHUA WELLS (DRUMS) - BOTH MEMBERS OF SOON TO BE WORLD DOMINATORS BLACK MOUNTAIN - ON ATASCAM 8-TRACK CASSETTE RECORDER. THE BAND IS COMPRISED OF CAMIRAND AND WELLS, ALONG WITH KEYBOARDER SHIRA BLUSTEIN, JEFFRY LEE ON THE OTHER GUITAR AND BASSIST KEVIN GRANT. THE SONGS DRIFT BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN LO-FI PSYCHEDELIC-COUNTRY-ACOUSTIC SOLO-EFFORTS BY CAMIRAND HIMSELF ('SHE WEARS BLACK, I WEARWHITE' AND 'LONG WAY AROUND'), TO FULL-BAND, "IN THE BASEMENT" JAMS ('THE BURNING RIVER OF GUILT', 'SHE CALLS ME'). FANS OF EARLY ESP'S FOLKIER RELEASES, THE BOB SEGER SYSTEM RECORDS AND POSSIBLY ALEXANDER "SKIP" SPENCE'S "OAR" ALBUM MAY WELL FIND COMFORT WITHIN THE GROOVES OF 'LIQUIDATE PARIS!'
