For this past year machineKUNT Records (home to Experiment Haywire, Trimetrick, Lady Parasyte, Syrenn etc.) are hard at work on the “Sanity is Slavery” compilation to fight against psychiatric abuse through music.
This is a 2 digipack CD compilation which also includes a digital bonus disc. 10% of proceeds are going to MindFreedom International which is an organization dedicated to mental health rights. The compilation features 48 diverse (mostly unreleased) tracks from artists across the globe including Attrition, Hanin Elias, Leæther Strip, amGod, Pzychobitch, and Trimetrick. It is mastered by Kolja Trelle of Soman.
machineKUNT is currently giving away packages to anybody who pre-orders the compilation as they count down the last days of their Kickstarter fund. With everything from paintings made specifically for the cause to customized songs by Experiment Haywire and Society Burning to customized photoshoots of machineKUNT models to professional remixes by De-Tached to rare Attrition posters there are 14 different packages available to everyone who helps machineKUNT reach their Kickstarter goal.
In an age of digital media the cost of printing physical albums in astronomical but Rachel Haywire of machineKUNT Records is interested in releasing a collectors item that will be remembered for its meaning and message. The large booklet of this digipack will contain pictures, bios, and testimonials from the artists on the compilation along with testimonials from psychiatric survivors all over the world.
Sample clips of the songs are available for listening directly on the machineKUNT website.
You can pledge on one of the 14 packages here on Kickstarter.
I am a contributor to the Disinformation anthology "Generation Hex" and have an autobiography coming out called "Acidexia" which documents my personal experience of living as a nomad on the fringes of cyberculture.
In addition to music and writing I am also a mental heath and civil rights activist. Recent projects of mine are the "Sanity is Slavery" psychiatric rights compilation and RANT (Rivetheads Against Nazi Thugs) which seeks to remove the elements of fascism from the darker music subcultures.
