Cow Parade Cow began as the solo recording project of 22 year old Mike Litton, born from the thriving Perth music scene in Western Australia. His first release was the full album-length "To the North" (2010) which was initially only intended as a collection of CD-Rs to be shared among friends. However, after a series of international blogs stumbled across the bandcamp website, a larger audience was found.

NonHorse is the crux of most human difficulty, a semantic anomaly ferociously battled by analog foundsound/circuitbent/tapenoise artist G. Lucas Crane ever since his unwittingly contradictory recognition of this, the aforementioned crux. Mr. Crane has been barely surviving performances, both solo and in support of bands including Dufus, Woods, Castanets, and Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice, since the turn of the century. Beware, and attentive.

In the year 2012, Satan faces declining popularity and certain defeat at the hands of thee reinvigorated Christian Militia. As the final days before the apocalypse tick down, Satan makes a last ditch effort to win the war for evil.
