Grief-Alive CD
Live Show from Reunion Tour

Released June 2006 on Southern Lord
 (Ltd. to 2,000 numbered copies)


(note: some upcoming GRIEF shows may NOT be listed here.)

In 2005 the corpse of Grief kicked open its coffin and has been 
seen shambling through various venues along the east coast. 
This doom metal zombie will stalk the night in search of the 
brains of America's youth on which it will feed. It will live for an
undetermined length of time before returning to its hole in the ground.

(or the heart of some unwary victime...) for more info, you can contact me and i'll hook you up with an email address... Kontortion will make you want to go out and buy flowers for some one that you love, and hten realize you hate them and jam the damned thorned stems up their fucking ass... while yelling "GOOBLE GABBLE GOOBLE GABBLE GOOBLE GABBLE GOOBLE GABLE..." ITS a Nice RECORD. OUT ON dead alive recoreds... dead alive has a cool selection to... i dont know the address off the top of my head, but dead alive has a home page and kontortion has a home page... i htink both can be found on most search engines. go to hell... and i'll see you there. ericofgrief. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ NOVEMBER 11, 1999 HOWDY, eric OF grief writing... the split with sourvein, bongzilla, negative reaction and subsanity is now available... for more info email eric... its called: HE'S NO GOOD TO ME DEAD - an excellent release by GAME TWO Records. theres more of my suck ass slop art in it. and its got some rather swell nice happy puppy petting doll dressing tunes on it... so why dont you give it a listen? finally, my head fell out of my ass and i finished all of the art for the new grief record and sent it off to pessimiser... soon our record will be released "AND MAN WILL BECOME THE HUNTED" my cat CHUCK, the one with all the fleas, died of old age... very sorrowful day in the harrison house. but at least now my rats can run around the living room safely... and my rats were alot friendlier than my cat anyway... recently some of my artwork was deemed sexist. anyone who thinks i'm a sexist is thinking the wrong thing... thats all i'm saying. i dont hate anyone for race, color, sex, music type, appearance or anything, i hate people when they give me reason to hate them... which is quite often. but as i have said for years "hate everyone equally" I MUST say though, its funny that when you represent the victimization of a male (ie: the grief pessimiser cover with the guy whos cock had nails in it) that no one seems to care... you draw a picture of a woman being victimized and your a sexist... if anyone ever sees artowrk of mine that has women being victimized in it, just keep in mind, i'm representing something horrible that happens... not something i condone, take part in or enjoy... bottom line is - women, men - they all suck... humans suck. so fuck all of them... myself included. Ericofgrief. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ AUGUST 5, 1999 greetings from space... eric from GRIEF writing... a bit of information about the band... last week we completed recording our newest full length record to be titled "...and man will become the hunted." we recorded 8 songs all together. fucking fuckity fuck fuck fuck fank fuck fork fuck fucking fuck. the new songs include dual vocals... Jeff still does most of them... but i sing a few with him now... the album was recorded at Supersonic which is the same studio that we recorded "TORSO" at... Of course Bill T. Miller AKA the sound god... Engineered and produced the recording with us... and put up with our dementia. We also have some shows coming up this month: Locally - we have a show Tuesday, August 17th at O'Brians in Allston with Anodyne, Time in Malta, and hopefully Slow Division. Non Locally - Wednesday the 25th of August, at the Continental in New York City... Friday the 27th - the Caboose, in Rowley North Carolina (i think its in rowley, maybe Garner... i've been there a number of times, but never sober enough to noticeŠŠ what fucking city we're in...)Š probably with Jermflux and Seven foot spleen...Š be there or be elsewhere! but if youre there make sure your really really fucking fucked up and obnoxious. Saturday the 28th - somewhere in virginia with Jermflux and spleen again... i think its actually a party... i'm not sure... either way i'll be falling on my face... in other news... I tried drinking Malta Goya this week and i thought i liked it and then i realized it really sucked. its like some kind of Corn Flavored soda... while riding down the highway i saw a dead tree in the road, it was horrible, there were branches and splinters all over the place... i was stricken with horror. The Blair Witch project - i saw this yesterday. it was very entertaining... especially for those of us on acid. i've heard a lot of people think that this movie is a real documentary. i'd like these people to email me so that i can sell you some property that doesnt really exist. i mean c'mon folks, anyone who knows anything about witches knows that in true witch stories there are at least 2200 women referred to as Goodie Something or other... i did like the movie... i just cant believe that so many people fell for it... when buying a vaccuum cleaner, make sure it sucks. when you're tripping, look to the sky for MOON BOOBS. never buy your little cousin plastic bags for their birthday or a trash bag to be used as a halloween costume. i've come to learn that even youngsters require oxygen occasionally. there seems to be some kind of a weed drought going on here there and everywhere and it really really fucking sucks. then of course everyone starts raising their fucking prices and acting like you need to suck the shit out of their ass cuz they sold you an overpriced bag... - kill these people... my cat has fleas again, the fucking bastard. i dont know how this prick pulls it off. he's a fucking house cat. it must mean that one of my friends has fleas... he managed to chew a hole in his neck or scratch a hole in his neck the size of a fried egg. its really nasty. but you'll be happy to know that he's recovering well... and i de-flead him... forks are for eating, not for scratching your balls. knives, now theres a fine ball scratcher. ah well, i guess i've wasted enough of your time with this nonsense... but what can i say... i'm an asshole with nothing important to talk about... peace, hope to see you at the shows... if you reach that low point where you feel like you dont even want to leave your bed in the morning and dont want to go to work or even get up to take a piss... then... um... well, i dont know what to do when that happens, i usually get up and piss and then go to work and fester in my own rotting aggrivation for 8 hours. so i guess your in the same boat. like that old song by the police... if you love someone - fuck them good. Ericofgrief.
