Karl Mohr is currently preoccupied with the re-compiling and re-mastering of the entire Karl Mohr back-catalog, bringing the sum-total of all Karl Mohr output fully up-to-date for the Tape Life Records launch. There are a number of new albums underway for Dead Red Velvet; below is a sample of new 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.
- Purchase the album Full Moon Film (digital) at iTunes.
- Purchase the album Full Moon Film (CD) from IndiePool.
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.
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:
- 04/10/16 – Powder Blue Vampire
- 05/05/22 – Looking For You At The Edge Of The World
- 09/08/21 – Storyline
- 09/08/21 – Come Hither Moon
- 09/08/21 – To The Morgue Again
- 09/08/21 – The Girl With The Haunted Eyes
- 09/08/21 – Habitual Equestrian Cycle
The Banquet Begins
- Tape Life Records expanded web content for Dead Red Velvet coming soon.
