MZR 2009 News

Sometime this month MZR hopes to release the fourth volume of the acclaimed Cat Band anthology series. This release, whose tracklisting will be announced soon, concentrates on material culled from the band's 1999-2001 period, which followed the release of "The Cat Band's Greatest Hits Tape Vol. 1" (which was collected on the third Cat Band anthology release) and involved my youngest brother, Andrew, joining the band as the official drummer (prior to that, my other brothers had used either keyboard drums or unorthodox objects such as coins for percussion). This anthology will contain some of the Cat Band's most classic songs, including "Magic", "Harlem", "Watch Your Back Jack", and perhaps their trademark song, "Blue Cat". It will also feature many rarities and other obscure curiosita.

A fifth (and, at the moment, final) Cat Band anthology will be released sometime over the summer. This will simply be the Cat Band's final "live" show, recorded in 2002.

Prior to that, however, MZR will release an "best of" Sypha Nadon collection, celebrating Sypha Nadon's ten year anniversary. It will be released on June 17, 2009. A new Sypha Nadon album is expected to be released sometime this year.

Boy Destroyer is also planning on returning to the studio sometime soon.

We also eventually hope to finally release Bryce Clayton Eiman's "Sex in Heaven" album sometime over the summer. More details soon.

Finally, if anyone reading this has a copy of the old "TRANS/MISSION 2" PDF, could you please send me a copy through our label's e-mail address ( We lost our only copy during a computer crisis in late 2008.
