Dead Red Velvet aka Karl Mohr is currently preoccupied with the re-compiling and re-mastering of the entire Karl Mohr Audio-Yo back-catalog, bringing the sum-total of all Karl Mohr output fully up-to-date for the Tape Life Records launch.  There is at least one new Dead Red Velvet album on the way as well – below is a sample of some of the yet-unreleased Dead Red Velvet material.


Multibeat Records reborn as Tape Life Records

On January 15, 2015, Karl Mohr ended Multibeat Records, and has moved his music releases to his new label Tape Life Records. The entire back-catalog of around thirty releases is being distilled, re-mastered and re-packaged into ten new albums: a solid gold survey of the years 1987-2004 as Karl Mohr Audio-Yo, and the ongoing fracas that followed, from 2004 to the present incarnation as Dead Red Velvet.


Tape Life Records is gearing up to provide Dead Red Velvet music & merchandise.


The Album


For videos, the Dead Red Velvet YouTube playlists are recommended, with an emphasis on live concert footage.

Below, the exquisite video for “These Fine Feathers” is a creation by cinematic monster-genius Gabriel Teran, aka Hybridly Rude.

Live Recordings

Karl Mohr began playing live November 1st, 1991. This first concert, with Robin Buckley, was a bombastic diatribe of psychedelic industrial noise at a gay biker bar in St. Catharines, Ontario.  Subsequent shows have been no less esoteric.  Mohr’s live appearances have always tried on new angles, ideas and configurations. The following recordings are from the Karl Mohr & the Fallen Angels period:
