Well, your humble webmaster is going to take a slight break due to midterms, finals and other tasks eating up every ounce of time he's got. So....in brief, the Anarchist Bookfair was amazing, thanks to Ali, Meagan, Chris, Lori and all the others who made it happen! Over the Christmas break, the nOnCapable site will post new media from the Bookfair as well as other events and will overhaul the media section to make it easier to navigate. Peace out all, see you in a month!

Holy christ it's been a while since an update...typical indeed. Well, your humble label head has been very busy with tours and preparing the next, and quite a bit bigger CD release. The CD release will be like a Mountain Asik part 2, only this time there is a large budget and the compilation will be full of never before released music by Dumb Angel, Titanarum, Sakura Watanabe, Diadrums and others. Its been a while in the making as the artists have all had to write and record original work for the disc. More details on that to come.
The big news for the moment is EXPLOSION DANCE!!!!!!!!!! which is a free open air concert held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, and will make all of you out of town and out of country folks super jelous. The show will feature live music all afternoon ranging from breakcore to noise-hop, electro folk to outright rock and roll anarchy as well as site specific instillation work and an open air art gallery. EXPLOSION DANCE!!!!!!!!!!! will be held on August 26th, 2006 in North Kiwanis park at 23rd Street and Spadina Crescent in Saskatoon. Visual artists looking to get involved should email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is one of the many poster designs:

February 16th, 2006
A month and a half in and only one update. that is lame as hell. the february 11th show went well, freakouts were had but they were positive ones i think. rumour has it that two new projects are on the way for nOnCapable. there is an album by Mitch Grier on the way. there is also another compilation in the works, and this one's got some funding, so its going to be big! there also may be a third project...maybe a fourth...rumours of a holzkopf tour are flying around, as are rumours of an outdoor festival on Saskatoon's beautiful riverbank.

Saturday, February 11th, nOnCapable's third party!!! It's a pre-valentine's freakout starting at 8pm and featuring Parades Against Parades, Knar, Narcissistic, Holzkopf, Soso and Milkhorse.

It'll be all ages with a bar! More details to come. Come party and freak out!!!

It's been a while since an update and a lot has happened. basically, i should learn to update before events and not after. The concert with Felt Birds went really well, thanks all for attending and helping and a big thanks to Kelley Bolen who came in from Edmonton to provide live video mixing throughout the night.
Holzkopf has just finished a tour of downtown Calgary, playing 4 shows in 3 days in the cowboy metropolis. They mostly went off well, although one perticular show insighted panic in the bodies and souls of the bar staff and gold chains whering, lame ass DJ. It was a confrontational show to say the least.
Up next are Holzkopf performances on December 17th in Saskatoon, SK, Canada at Le Relais with Milkhorse, Our Tptarimgan (sp?), Skeletons and the All Purpose Voltage Heroes and a show on Xmas night at midnight at Paved Art and New Media (also in Saskatoon) with Skeletons. A piece written exclusively for The Little Fury Things label showcase in NYC by Holzkopf will be presented along with live visuals out in the cultural hub of Lower Manhattan...check local listings for venue and details.

survived another video game/remembrance day. in honesty: in spite of the common cinical joke Nov. 11 has become among many...it seems like a good day to take a break if only to realize that millions died because of politics. the show with felt birds is coming up and shit will be dope. !!!ALSO!!! new MP3 releases section with a free downloadable release by Titanarum, featuring adolyne and holzkopf members. click the link in the new bigger menu bar.
October 18th, 2005
thanks to all artists who submitted work for the posters of the upcoming party with felt birds, your artwork will soon grace the streets of Saskatoon, leaving people no choice but to check out the show!
an mp3 section is coming up, but don't worry, we'll still stick to the small run of CD-R aesthetic until we sell out, it just takes soooo long to get a CD-R release together that it is easy to get ahead of myself and muttled, so, certain things will be released, for a limited time, as free, downloadable mp3s. stay tuned to get your grubby hands on this free stuff soon.
September 27th, 2005
don't talk to me!!!!!!! new split compilation with 4 bands now on its happy way. stay tuned. lot's of strummin', noisin' and other kinds of music as well.
also: the planning of the release party and Felt Birds fashion show is underway. we are still looking for visual artists (painters, photographers, sculpturs, etc.) and video artists (both video to be played during musical performances and stand alone video with an audio component) to contribute work. if you'd like to get involved please contact: email@example.com
