Bishop Morocco Remix ‘Stay Lit’

Download BISHOP MOROCCO‘s Remix of HOLY FUCK‘s Stay Lit from 2010’s LATIN.

“this remix of HOLY FUCK’s Latin cut Stay Lit – speaks to our heart and soul. Stripping down the bulk the live electronics and distorted crunch, BISHOP MOROCCO effectively brings the song closer to a Factory Records-esque post-punk sound.” – XLR8R

Bad Tits ‘No Skin’ Video

BAD TITS ‘No Skin’ | From: Garbage Night 7″ & EP (2010) | Director: Alex Jones | Edition of 300

BAD TITS have a lot going for them; a great label that lets them record whatever music they want, a pedigree of awesomeness and probably most importantly to herohill, a love for The Warriors. ” – herohill

“It’s truly a collision of genres, but under their deft guidance, music springs out of the mess. It’s sonic urban decay, it’s messy infatuation, it’s spontaneous & unpredictable, & it’s a shit-load of fun” – quickbeforeitmelts

“Sebastien Grainger (DFA’79, Sebastien Grainger & the Mountains) and Josh Reichmann (ex-Tangiers, Jewish Legend) create greasy, industrial disco, drizzled with danceable beats and carried by Grainger’s soulful howl and Reichmann’s rock-and-roll jangle.” – The Star

By Divine Right ‘Cupid in Oilskins’ Video


Cupid in Oilskins is the soundtrack to director Jose Miguel Contreras’ (aka Salvatore Splattorini) three minute homage to the films of George Romero & Lucio Fulci. Jose’s music video sends up zombie cinema with a tongue in cheek humor and DIY attitude that is BY DIVINE RIGHT.

Hand Drawn Dracula is pleased to present Cupid in Oilskins from BDR’s Mutant Message – “a compact, potent collection of punchy hooks delivered with devil-may-care energy.” – The National Post

Bad Tits ‘Bankok Hilton’ Video


BAD TITSBankok Hilton from Garbage Night EP & 7″ (edition of 300) directed by Alex Jones.

“As BAD TITS, Sebastien Grainger and Josh Reichmann delve deeper into the garage-y post-punk inclinations of their former projects, and experiment a bit more with electronics.” – XLR8R

“A propulsive bit of strangeness that sounds like Philip Glass mashed into Bronski Beat mashed into David Bowie. From the forthcoming Garbage Night 7″ EP on sexy new Hand Drawn Dracula label.” – The Star
