Magnificent Sludge

Jayaprakash Satyamurthy, who is a seriously awesome writer of horror and weird fiction (plus a shamefully talented poet) and (as if things weren’t unfair enough already) an excellent bass player, has a new band that has recorded some awesome shit. The second I heard raw bass + drum instrumental versions of the new songs a few weeks (months?) back, I was blown away. I am humbled to know this man and his work. Check out the finished demo tracks below. Share them. Rejoyce.


Empty Dreams: A Story by Jayaprakash Satyamurthy

On the first night, I had to sleep half-sitting, my head resting on my knees and my arms wrapped around my legs to avoid rolling onto something that stank terribly and felt disgustingly warm and wet. As my head cleared, I realized it was my own vomit.

Thus starts Jayaprakash Satyamurthy’s excellent story Empty Dreams, which you can read, in full, if you click on this link. It’s highly recommended. I was blessed enough to read it in an earlier draft, and I’m stunned at how much better even it turned out to be. Read it.
