Gee fucking whiz, it has been AWHILE since our last “News Update.” — First things first, today we released a sensational number called “Cannonballs Anonymous” AND it has a music video too! — Second things second, a few months back a little song called “Muddy Puddles” came out. It has a music video too! — What else… our “Rhythm & Booze” cassette got a swell plug on a podcast called “People are the Enemy.” Host seems like an amicable fella. — Doomlazer has been awfully busy with a VERY exciting project so…. stay tuned for more fun and excitement from yer pals, THE SPR3!
On August 5th, 2021 we completed and uploaded our latest and greatest music video. Clearly our devoted public agrees with that assessment as “Worst Year Ever” has been viewed over A DOZEN times since then! Turns out, even during a pandemic people still love it when shit goes viral! — That’s not all that’s new though! Since our last “News Update”, a lot has happened in the wonderful world of The SPR3! We had the honor of appearing on the 6th episode of the “Banana Runts Memories” podcast! We uploaded more classic issues of “CHIAROSCURO” ! AND we’ve got new songs! “Slideshow” & “Bananaz” are our newest audio delights! Enjoy!
A new song was completed and uploaded yesterday! So, six months since this website went live we have made EIGHT new songs! “Dot Com”, “HeadCase”, “Idiots”, “Get Beat”, “Jealousy”, “Corpse Fuck*r”, “Salty Breeze”, and our newest… “Worst Year Ever.”
New video for Corpse Fuck*r released.
Today’s YOUR lucky day! We’ve got a new feature here on this very website that will enable YOUR dream to come true! Assuming that your dream was to help us make a future SPR3 song, that is! Check it out - https://speakpipe.com/spr3voicemailbox Upload noises, compliments, or weird sex shit! Do as thou wilt, I say! AS THOU WILT!!!
Grab yourself a mojito and enjoy the summer sounds of the latest SPR3 song "Salty Breeze". It's in the "shuffle all" playlist.
New song released: Corpse Fuck*er. The song title is a reference to the surrealist game, Exquisite Corpse, that inspired the technique used to produce this track. FZ and DL took turns emailing back and forth adding one 'piece' to the track at a time. There was no preplanned theme or musical ideas other than how the song would be created. It started with 15 seconds of drumming and after more than a dozen iterations, morphed into the finished version. Yes, technically that differs significantly from how Exquisite Corpse is played, but we lean dadaist.
If you haven't already ordered your cassette tape of "Rhythm & Booze" you better hurry - we only have several thousand more available. After you order, check out the just-released SPR3 song "Jealousy" in the 'Shuffle All' playlist. More zine issues, SPR3 pics and some minor formatting changes have also been added recently.
“Rhythm & Booze” - the cassette.
Due to unpopular demand, more issues of the legendary zine that birthed The SPR3 have been uploaded in reader friendly PDF format no less!
There’s a new song too. Answers to “Get Beat” and it’s... something alright!
#NoSpoilers but... there’s a lot of exciting shit on the horizon. Stay tuned. Be young. Have fun. Drink pepsi.
Few people realize how toxic it is to produce a single SPR3 song. The numbers are shocking and frankly, it has has the potential to destroy our planet. Take a look for yourself: https://thespr3.com/picsSPR3/footprint.png. That said, we've just added 38 recent SPR3 songs missing from the website. That's 102 minutes of new music in the "Shuffle All" playlist!
Big news! The THIRD new SPR3 song of 2021 has arrived! It’s called “Idiots” and just like “HeadCase” or “Dot Com” you can find it on the “Not on CD” and “Play All” playlists!
Also! More music videos have been created and uploaded for YOUR enjoyment! All the new songs have videos!
For a hot minute there, we forgot that it was all about the MUSIC!
2nd new song of 2021 has arrived. It’s called “HeadCase” and if you don’t know by now how to find it here... yeesh! She was a boy, he was a girl... can i make it anymore obvious?
The WebAmp media player now works on Safari! Since Safari doesn't enable WebGL2.0 by default, it loads without the visualizer. It's possible to enable it though. I might add instructions on how to do this at some point - might not!
There’s a new poll on the front page, a long lost FZ appearance on Brian Staker’s “Awkward Hour” podcast, and we’ve got a fun as fuck doodle wall now!
Salt Lake City Weekly just did a short piece on theSPR3.com. https://www.cityweekly.net/utah/spr3s-online-design/Content?oid=16351889
Big update roundup! More links! More music videos! Video games! Hackers! Schizopolis! And lots of behind the scenes stuff that keep the site working and looking great that I’m told is quite the hassle!
It still needs some work but I reconfigured the image galleries, sorted based on category, and optimized most of the images. Everything should now load faster. Other than the WebAmp music player, the site is now 100% written from scratch by DL, so blame him.
Happy birthday to Dustin Neil Diamond!
New song release in celebration of the recent website launch. "DOT COM" was uploaded to soundcloud here: https://soundcloud.com/thenewspr3/dot-com. It was also added to the "not on CD" and "all songs" playlists on TheSRP3.com
Exciting news! This SPE3 News page has just been created. The site only came online Jan 1st 2021, so we're making some progress.
This will mostly be used to announce and track new song releases. In the unlikely event something else happens it might be mentioned here. Who knows?
You're all invited to the SRP3 party happening now til ????
