Crypticomp CD Release Party :: Sat 6/6 :: Jamestown, NY

Crypticomp CD Release Party :: Sat 6/6 :: Jamestown, NY
"Crypticomp is designed to expose new experimental and extreme artists in the Jamestown area and promote camaraderie within the scene,” (George) Moore explains. “It’s a collaborative effort between Buffalo's Full Rabbit Records and myself that’s taken about a year to put together.” Moore says he also received help from local artist Matt Coan, who designed the front cover and the disc itself, and (Rob) Fiasco, who helped out with some artwork and putting the package together.

The CD contains 22 songs from 15 different bands from the area. Several of the bands on the CD (Off, Hot Stenographer, I am Frankie Scrap-metal, and Itchy Boy & the Cobras) are well known to those who follow local music in the south county. The other Jamestown-based groups include Celo-Kee, the Cobra Brothers, the Cryptic Yeast, Daniken, Ghost Attack, I am Zeroes and Ones, Lost Pioneers of Roanoke, Noise Track, and 18deadsquirlz (Moore’s solo project). Rounding out the list is Hello Star Vega from Salamanca and Jigsaw Hydro Citizen from Buffalo."
