"Back in the Bog, it’s truly great to learn that the final Khanate album CLEAN HANDS GO FOUL can see the light of day at last, especially as it concludes with the perpetually-garrotted Alan ‘The Nightshitter’ Dubin’s half-hour-plus Diss-Epic ‘Every Goddamn Thing’. Some commentators have complained at the methods in which Khanate achieved this final session, as though they’re the Ramones or somesuch and must all be together when the tracks go down. Fuck that shit. Messrs. Plotkin, Whizz Kidda, O’Malley and the Dubin are the fucking Can of Doom, not some weekenders on a largactyl mong. Besides, there are chordal blisses contained within this new Khanate album that singe my psychic split-ends and shake my pagan ass like no Khanate record previous. Way. And if the Dubin was Hornby Size in parts of Khanate’s previous canon, then he’s veritably Utgard-Loki by the middle of ‘Every Goddamn Thing’, creeping about your larder like a rampant shrew on marijuana lardy cake. Released on Japan’s Daymare Recordings, you also gots the option to score ye picture disc version from trustnoonerecordings.com. Luvverly!"
Also, the preorder for the KHANATE LP version (on Hydra Head) of this album has started on Blue Collar Distro. They are offering some, ahem, "contoversial/conversational" (for the uber doom spastics & nerds) and "useful/amusing" (for the caffienated and cold ones among us) additional merchandise if you have interest in those kinds of things. And the usual swath of beautiful color options in the vinyl for whatever your taste. Next and last stop for KHANATE is the release of the digipak version of this album which is initially packaged with a live DVD documenting (in a raw way) our final Chicago performance at Empty Bottle. "END: Capture & Release Live" in a cool silkscreened sleeve printed by Broken Press/Seattle. That will be the END, at last. This train makes no more stops. Thank you for listening.
