This is a complete waste of time for you. You don't care about BIG SUGAR VICTORIOUS. You are indifferent to BIG SUGAR VICTORIOUS. BSV is a noise / lo-fi / plunderphonic sound artist. I am so disorganized I need this blog to keep myself glued together

Not so new netlabel on

I started a Netlabel at It is basically old junk I found on old cassettes of me doing odd things plus some stuff that friends of mine had done also. It's called Sip N Smack.
The source for the name is a drive-in restaurant that existed in Brandon, Florida in 1963. Next to where the McDonalds is now located on HWY 60 (for those of you who are familiar with Brandon)

Split with Seism

Seism has put my split with him back on It is available here.
I used the name I8X8X888ET because of a dream a friend of mine had long ago. He dreamt that it was how his college roommate's name was spelled.

Substandard sounds

Ybor Cigar Theater hosted a gig on August 3rd. Performing were Otolathe, Kristin Calvarese, part of Hunker Down Roy, Insecticide Lobotomy, Phantom Limb Syndrome, Lissajou, and me. Kristin's set is on youtube in three parts. Go watch it NOW!

Tampa Noise Fest

This is late. Tampa Noise Fest was superb. Totally mind blowing. There is supposed to be another one in December. Jen Sandwich took amazing photos. Check her out on Flickr. Some of the sets are posted on youtube. Check those out as well.

Tampa Noise Fest 28 days away

The Tampa Noise Fest is 28 days away. I am working on putting together something with my crappy equipment. What mixing board I have only has two regular stereo inputs and two inputs for phonographs. I may have to use Y-adapters for the rest. Low-low rent indeed!


May 4 @ Transitions Art Gallery

Multi-group gig at Transitions was awesome. You can find pictures and reviews here:

Jen Sandwich is a superb photographer. Her pictures of this and other noise shows festivals are incredible.
Sometimes very realistic and captivating, sometimes surreal with multiple exposures and other creative techniques. Visit her flickr pages and check them all out!

The gig itself was very enjoyable. The balance was certainly there with great folk singing one minute (Real Live Tigers and Lightning Paw) and bone crushing punk rock the next (Monarcs and Resi Noth). Toward the end as an added treat, Hal McGee and Ironing collaborated on a piece utilizing several tape recorders and Ironings bag of toys which included a Fisher Price Record Player without the records. Very wild and trippy. Hal punctuated the performance by throwing the cassettes out into the crowd when they were finished playing!!
The final act of the evening were two girls named Rose and Lily playing together under the name Inertia. They were a giddy conclusion to the evening's show and were very likeable.

Split with Seism

Seism is a Canadian Noise artist. He has over 200 net releases at here.

I did a split with him for his netlabel kHz Media under the name I8X8X888ET. My piece was called A Fluffernutter Container Filled With Human Excrement. I got the idea for this title from watching a story on Court TV about a prison that had a wing for mentally disturbed inmates. Apparently, one of the inmates threw this at a guard.

For some reason, this item was removed from If I can find a copy, I will make it available.

Opsound Submission

I have a submission to Opsound called State Fair. It is also on
It is a recording of the livestock tent at the Florida State Fair. I "folded" the recording by cutting the second half and layering it over the first in the opposite channel. The result is pretty choppy but you may still enjoy it.

20kbps Submissions

I have submitted pieces to the netlabel 20kbps. Give them a listen! The 20kbps netlabel is cool because instead of the normal 128-192 kbps bitrate for their MP3s, their bitrate is 20kbps or less. The quality is diminished but the music has a certain neat novelty to it. Sort of like 8mm film as compared to Hi-Definition video. My submissions are:

Forces of Darkness

High Adventures at Lo-Fidelity

One Car, One Tape Recorder, One Delay Pedal

I have also submitted smaller pieces to 20kbps compilations:

Pink Party and Bitrate- How Low Can You Go?

Split / Collaboration with Rasmussen

I did a split with John Rasmussen on the Swamp of Pus label. Check out their label. They have very good DIY music and noise. John Rasmussen also makes music as Page 27 . The track listing is:

1. BSV- Peace Land Bread
2. BSV- For Years, Astrology Was TBDR of the Sciences...Not So Good
3. BSV- Stupid Flounders Give Apes the Vote...You Wont Regret It
4. Rasmussen- Toooute
5. Rasmussen- Mud
6. Rasmussen- DalekDub

The song titles from my part of the split came from a piece of scratch paper I found at the local public library. Those three things were written on it in pencil.

The first Big Sugar Victorious CD

BSV-001 Whipped Cream, Yes...Nuts, No

This is the first Big Sugar Victorious CD release. It is on the awesome Smell the Stench label, which everyone should check out.
It is not actually available through contact with the label. I have copies of the CD and Leigh sent me the label identifier and cover artwork based on the BSV logo I e-mailed to him. Let me know if you want a copy. The track listing is as follows:

1. Intro- w.geo (0:22)
2. Sticky, Viscous Gel (4:48)
3. Patented, Comfortable (6:35)
4. Forces of Darkness (15:09)
5. Washii (15:13)
6. Untitled (1:19)

I refuse to accept any copyright protection. You can sample and rework whatever you want from anything I do. Just let me know what you did. I would like to hear it. net label

I have started a netlabel on here:

This netlabel generally consists of DIY stuff I did years ago and still had the tapes of. Other irrelevant junk is thrown in too.
