JUANITO))) comes from Barcelona, bringing squeamish types to their knees with 20 minutes of blood and cum gurgling Harsh Noise de España...Model: younseo_o (Toronto, Ontario, Canada 2020)
Jehova Wrinkle - Random Acts Of Surgery (Discography 2005-2008) (Placenta Recordings #579 - 2020)
Jehova Wrinkle was an early project by Jay Watson, pre-Dental Work, pre-Placenta Recordings, and the first 2 albums and an EP were the very first releases on Placenta Recordings back in 2006 and 2007. Dabbling with Hip Hop, Industrial, Electronic, Field Recordings, Metal, and Noise, before I even knew what Noise was. A life of mental illness intertwined with experimental drug use and a life long addiction to bizarre music is responsible for the results - these albums were forced out into the sick sad world we call home as a kind of therapy. A mix of live instruments, programming, turntables, and sampling, this project was left to rot once I began making music as Dental Work. I burned copies of the albums on CDR with black & white images from Rotten.com which was a real life changer let me tell you. This music today would perhaps fall under the GORENOISE, BREAKCORE, and VAPORWAVE categories, but still a unique hybrid of sound collage that is unexplained. Available digitally for the first time ever, and physically avaible in one spot since copies existed in extremely limited quantities back in 2007. This collection includes "Lowercase Mindstate", "Lysurgery EP", "Random Acts Of Surgery", and the unreleased and forgotten until now "Umbilical Splicer" albums for your research and enjoyment. The name "Jehova Wrinkle" basically translates to the thought of organized religion being dated and obsolete, with a lack of respect directed at "the gods"... - Jay Watson (Jehova Wrinkle, Dental Work, Placenta Recordings) February 2020.
CLEANWATER4FLINT Compilation (Placenta Recordings #580 - 2020)
Featuring Origix, Gozza, J-Bone, Polk Frost of Project Born, BAD MiND, Keagan Grimm, Ray Huncho, Dental Work, George Feeny, K9H, JUANITO))), Dystopian Vomit Cop, +DOG+, and more.
Pig DukE presents Devil's Night Gangstaz - Mushroomz (The Lost Tape) (Nekhorosho Records + Placenta Recordings #581 - 2020)
Noa Mal - HANGMAN (Placenta Recordings #582 - 2020)
Noa Mal is an artist from The Philippines. Being considered as an unusual child, her songs are mostly stories of lost love, stoicism and everything in between...
"I've been familiar with The Hangman since I was a little kid, he lived under my bed and inside my head. What he wanted and still want, I can never know. Beware of The Hangman, do not talk to him -- do not even look at him in the eye. Well of course, unless all you want is to burn out and then die. This album means so much to me, it's very personal, you could say that. I hope you feel something as you listen to each song."

2019 YEAR IN REVIEW by JAY WATSON/PLACENTA RECORDINGS
2019 was perhaps the most insane year yet in the world of Placenta Recordings. I want to start by thanking the entire Placenta Recordings Family and all of our fans from around the globe...Without you, who knows where we would be! Love you all!
We kicked off 2019 by releasing Beshenitar "The Great Wound of History" (Placenta Recordings #484) on CD and digital, which is Black Metal from Iran. This Band Is A One Man Project. It started in 2008 and is from Iran-Mazandaran-Nowshahr. Up next we dropped a few digital only releases: heavymetalmidis - ALGOMANIAC (Placenta Recordings #485) which is some Seattle, Washington MySpace cybergrind electronic MIDI woship with Midy "Sarahh" Metalmidi, along with a satire "Christain Gorenoise" project from Mexico City called Meekness - "Dogma Soup" (Placenta Recordings #486). Up next was the CD + digital re-issue of Dental Work - "Hashish & Raw Meat" (Extended Edition) (Placenta Recordings #487) which was originally released on Final Trauma Recordings in England, 2011. Re-vamped for a deluxe extended edition on Placenta Recordings 2019. The album features select works by Jay Watson and friends spanning 2010-2012. Recorded in various locations in the U.S. using various drugs, women, instruments, and recording techniques. Contains rare and unreleased cuts as well as the original album with a new twist on the origianl art. We released a ton of new t-shirts and hoodies through the year but it started with the PR "Contains THC" t-shirt and the offical PR "Choking Diabla" t-shirt that featured Las Vegas adult film star Dia Las Vegas on the design. All of this was done by the first day of 2019.
I was finally able to release my first book that was soley dedicated to my photography, which is called "Personal Cemeteries Volume 1" by Jay Watson. Full color selected photography by Jay Watson. Abandoned decay, withering cemeteries, and the harsh grim realities of modern day Detroit. Copies shipped worldwide. I appreciate all of you who support what I do...I risk my life daily getting some of these shots...
The first cassette release of 2019 for us was a Vaporwave tape ⋀⋁⋂⋃ - 道路工事 (Placenta Recordings #488) which is a side project of Tvvin_Pines_Mall and was a co-release with one of my favorite labels Bogus Collective. This tape was blue and came in an edition of 20 copies. Up next was a 4 way split by Black Mayonnaise, Dental Work, RECLUSA, Magical Mind - "Life Has No Meaning, Die" (Placenta Recordings #489) which was released on CD and digital with material from legendary 90's bedroom doom unit and precursor to goregrind imo aka Akron, Ohio's very own Black Mayonnaise (FIRST NEW MATERIAL IN YEARS!), Detroit's sadomasochistic yellow rain coat clad criminals Dental Work, plus yet ANOTHER legend from Ohio, knee deep in the GORENOISE community, RECLUSA. You may know of her from VOMITOMA. Do your homework, coward. Last but not least is Chicago goofball Magical Mind who I always play phone-tag with, you may know him from his label, Friendly Otter who will be releasing this very album on cassette in the not too distant future, featuring alternate *COLLECTIBLE* jcard art. Anyways, fuck the art, listen to the music. Follwing that was OFFAL FUTA - Поносный континент (Placenta Recordings #491), A limited edition CD of 30 copies. OFFAL FUTA IS A TWENTYSOMETHING LESBIAN DICKGIRL WHO MAKES MUSIC. ESTROGEN AWARD FOR SHITTING TAMPONS. OFFAL FUTA is a horrorcore gore rapper from America with ties to Ireland, the UK, and Russia. Rapping since 2010, Offal Futa project started in 2017. She is looking to record with musicians from all over the world and to spread her shit music to everyone. These crazy Russian dudes made me take these and distribute them or else...They kept shouting "Nekhorosho, Nekhorosho"...I think that was their label or something...Anyway, I didn't wanna end up chopped up in a bathtub, so I am offered you: The Blunt Session (1995)...Des Moines, Iowa Gangsta Rap from 1995. Something for the blunted. Nekhorosho Records. Forgotten Relics: The Blunt Session (1995) (Placenta Recordings #492). Next was Nekomata vs. Sid Redlin (Placenta Recordings #490), a limited edition cassette of Free Jazz and Noise. Kalamazoo is a strange place...Next was a limited CD and download from Tokyo, Japan's Nakayubi - "Magnetic Radio - 20190119 - 23:00 - TokyoArea FM" (Placenta Recordings #493). Recording equipment used "Magnetic Force Sound System” and ”Koma Elektronik Field Kit” Since ”Koma Elektronik Field Kit” is equipped with a radio tuner, it receives FM radio waves and plays music while crashing the sound with ”Magnetic Force Sound System”. The next release was another CD and download from Japan's Black Metal outfit Suicide Forest - "WAGOU~黒い病院~" (Placenta Recordings #494). Dental Work - 187 CORP The Demon Of Revenge (Placenta Recordings #495) was next, released on CD and limited edition 12" vinyl. 7 classick tracks from the psyche of Jay Watson, inlcuding the hit "Drug, Fuck, Throw In Trash Can, etc.". Devil's Night Gangstaz (D.N.G.) - Keeping Everything In Line (The EP) (Placenta Recordings #495.5) came after that, Horror Rap project started by Jay Watson in 1997...Back from the dead in 2019. R.I.P. Pig DukE...First official release since the 1997 "Mushroomz" cassette...Lost and forgotten...Ohio's Jen Lazarus followed with RECLUSA - "DERAILED" (Placenta Recordings #496) on CD which was the final release from RECLUSA. Doom, Industrial, and Noise for the depressed. Next was Dental Work and HLO "CARNAL" on CD/digital. Detroit bad boyz Dental Work team up with Los Angeles wildcard HLO aka @area51fieldtrip for this heavily intoxicated collaboration album. Up after that was tape and download CDR - You Know Shit Shit? (Placenta Recordings #498). CDR is Hikaru Tsunematsu, the infamous Breakcore Speed Godzilla producer from Tokyo, Japan. More Black Metal from Finland to follow. Die Schwarze Sonne "Sisällä Vain Pimeää" (Placenta Recordings #499) provides a whirlwind of frigid ice encrusted cemetery music, Dark Arts and Finnish Black Metal for this limited edition sealed CD of 50 copies on Placenta Recordings. Recorded, mixed, and mastered during the first half of 2018 in Turku, Finland. Music, lyrics, mixing, mastering, everything by Pestengel. Front cover by DK13 Design. Die Schwarze Sonne is a harbinger of Nordic nihilism. Nur der Tod ist in der Ewigkeit zu finden...After that was our 500th release at PR "The Withering Winds Of Piss And Shit" (Placenta Recordings #500), a comic book by Jay Watson. The withering winds of piss and shit, smeared in open cuts. Salt fields in the mind. Eternal dehydration. Desolate woods, smoke stack memories in a Heroin sky. Snow covered laboratories. Ancient scriptures buried in mold. Fungal remains. A short fairytale layered with violence and sexual debauchery, written and illustrated by Jay Watson, as the 500th release on Placenta Recordings. Dental Work - Ritual Bleeding & Raincoats (The Live DVD + Soundtrack) (Placenta Recordings #501) was afterthat. Limited Edition of 50 copies. The first 25 copies received an extremely limited edition original soundtrack to the book, featuring gloomy lo-fi Black Metal from Jay Watson's side project "Depressing Field", in addition to their copy of the book being signed by the author. This is extremely graphic, contains violence, drugs, and nudity. 18+!!! Dental Work - Ritual Bleeding & Raincoats (The Live DVD + Soundtrack) (Placenta Recordings #501) was next. A brand new DVD with 2 hours of footage of Dental Work and friends, including tons of guest appearances from the Placenta Recordings family, live sets in Detroit, NYC, Miami, and more...Tour footage, behind the scenes home videos, and a ton of fuckin' NOISE! Contains bonus CD/soundtrack with 7 live sets spanning 2012 to 2019! Limited to 100 sets! Contains photos and recordings from MD/Ratskin Records, Norcal Noisefest, Nirma Singh, John Vance, Julia Mazawa, and more. Thanks y'all ❤ Dental Work is Jay Paul Watson. Other members on this release include Sean Barry, Justin Lee Smith, and Gladys Harlow. Pas Musique - END-O-Nesia (Placenta Recordings #502) came next on CD/digital. Robert L. Pepper is Pas Musique from Brooklyn, NY. Known for his "Experi-MENTAL Festivals in New York, Robert is an eclectic author, musician, artist, painter, and an all around awesome guy. This album was made with his Indonesian tour in mind, and the Dental Work collaboration was done in NYC/Detroit after the tour. Pas Musique started in 1995 out of Brooklyn, NY, USA, driven by the creative talents of Robert L. Pepper working in the mediums of sound and video. Members include Jon “Vomit” Worthley, Michael Durek, and Robert Pepper. Pas Musique have performed in 17 countries and all throughout the United States. Switching back to Vaporwave, George Feeny "When The Work Week Is Finished..." (Placenta Recordings #503) was the next release, with words of wisdom from your favorite teacher: "After an extremely stressful workweek, standing in line in the frigid temperatures for the brand new video game console, I was granted a little time to decompress on the commute through the flickering city lights, I finally arrived at my humble abode. The excitement of opening up this brand new, factory assembled 64 bit entertainment system, complete with 3 games for my enjoyment. I reached for my bourbon glass, pulled out my trustworthy pipe, and began my evening. The work week is finished..." - George Feeny (October '96).
Dental Work hit the road for a couple Canadian gigs in Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario and had a total blast performing at Owl's Club in Toronto with the Craniophagus Parisiticus Records crew, and at Doors Pub in Hamilton. Sean and I featured a guest member for both of those sets, the one and only Ariel Ira aka Ariel Sports. Unforgettable times. Big shout out to Ben Durham, Nirma, David, Davey, bBomit, all of the supporting acts, and eveyone we kicked it with on the tour!
Back to releases. Durance Of Hate "East Of The Potato Fields Where The Devil Plays His Drum" (Placenta Recordings #504) was released as a double CD. The original evil vaporwave dungeon music from the Kashubian potato fields of Danzig, Poland. 冥無幻妖「忌み双児」(Placenta Recordings #505) came next, a side project of Suicide Forest. Japanese Folk Metal twins! Krister Bergman - UTOPIA II (Placenta Recordings #506) followed. Krister Bergman is an experimental artist from Västerås, Sweden. Next was Flesh Of Horses & Vampyric Arse - "Fungal Remains On Castle Walls" (Split) (Placenta Recordings + Nekhorosho Records). Blood soaked runes, prunes, and jagged ice lined shores. Snake shaped boats shipwrecked, coat of arms overgrown with mold. The stench of Vled's arse torn to shreds in burning beds in dungeons unbeknownst to man's maps.Shit in a chalice for priests to gorge while Pagan warriors smear blood and fire across plague ridden lands...A 2x CD set co-released with cranium vaporizing alien thugs on the outskirts of the industrial slums deep within Rostov On-Don, Russia, none other than Nekhorosho Records...CDs were ship from a seaside port and arrived to your country in crates of caviar..After that was Enbilulugugal - "Offerings to GoatSerpent" (Placenta Recordings #508W), a worst of Collection with 33 of the more "Musical" tracks. This release is meant to be an introduction to the LardRealms of ENBILULUGUGAL, THE GOATSERPENT and his fat fvkken crony... THE LARD CURLYTON. Further Interest in Enbilulugugal upon hearing this release is at your own risk and not recommended by Enbilulugugal, The GoatSerpent or his fat fvkken crony... The Lard Curlyton. Enbilulugugal, its members and fans cannot be held accountable for loss of sanity, hearing or brain cells upon listening to this collection or any other recording by the BLACK NOISE ARMAGEDDON band Enbilulugugal. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. The next release was extremely disturbing, Wormhoudt - "Concrete Encased High School Girl Murder Case" (Placenta Recordings #509). This project was inspired by the pornographization of the murder of Junko Faruta, a seventeen year old girl who as held captive for forty days by a group of young men.

Side A is a collection of spells and incantations from the long forgotten tomes, symphonies of frozen nights when darkness reigned supreme over the land. The great longing for immortality we have given our souls for, the night engulfs the land as we feed. Tales of vampyrs and those who wish to obtain this very same immortality, forsaken to an eternity of darkness never feeling the warmth of the sun again. Vampyric Burial Shroud is 6 tracks of raw vampyric hatred, cold synth driven black metal. Side B is a somber tale of death and sadness, a lonely soul sent to the noose for reasons we may never know. Tattered clothes and decaying skin, we do not know his name, we do not know his story. We feel the sorrow on his face as the ravens feast upon what is left, we mourn this unknown and give him these songs as a eulogy for this hangman. Eulogy for the Hangman is 4 tracks of raw dungeon synth, cold and bleak with no light at the end of the tunnel. Recorded in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Music and art by Erythrite Throne.

Detroit Bad Boys combine forces. NO CAP just a blunt wrap...Shortly after Dental Work was booked for Mummyfest 2 at Trumbullplex in Detroit. The eve of October we have decided to drop 2 classic re-issues from 2009 (10 year anniversary!!!) and a brand new release from 2019. Scissor Shock - Rarities 2003-2008, Scissor Shock aka Adam Cooley was an nontraditional artist, filmmaker, and musician from Columbus, Indiana. We became online friends on Myspace around 2007 when I came across his music on some bizarre international net-labels and quickly downloaded everything I could. We started a regular dialogue in the glory days of cybergrind, and began collaborating on both releases and doing music together with my project Dental Work which was very little known at the time. I always looked up to his insane concepts, song titles, short & FAST "songs"...My parents didn't get it, most people didn't...But I knew this was something. Adam was taken from us a few years back from a sickness that none of us knew about. Patrick Harsh was able to go attend his funeral in Indiana, I was not, sadly...His work will always be a part of my soul, my mind, and my history...I doubt I would have gone in the sonic direction I went in if it wasn't for Scissor Shock...I mean Fuckin' A, Crucial Blast released one of his albums, if that says anything. None of his musical career was mentioned in his obituary, so it is our responsibility to inform you what a fucking legend he is...R.I.P. Adam <3, then Mustafio - A Taste Of Mustafio Vol. 1 Вкус на Мустафио Том първи, Broken saxophones drear in the distant NYC night while Mustafio soothes us with a bottle of cheap chardonnay with his stories of his life halfway between Bulgaria and Brooklyn...A classic release we put out back in 2009, finally available on CD after many requests for a re-pressing. Next was Ogre - m i r r o r (Placenta Recordings #544). DRUGS & MUTILATION....audio/visual provocateur OGRE, known for his penchant for violence and necro-phallic deviancy, drenched in gore and dripping in angst. Hailing from the northwoods of Michigan, USA. Another t-shirt came next, a 10 year anniversary of the PR "Rostov OG" logo. Dental Work - Talkboyz N The Hood (Placenta Recordings #546) came next on CD/digital, with an eerie cover shot taken in a basement in New Jersey. A super lowkey release from Chicago artist tch - "the womb" (Placenta Recordings #547) dropped next and was entirely slept on. R.I.P. Luigi Russolo T-Shirts were the next release. Luigi Russolo was perhaps the first noise artist. His 1913 manifesto, L'Arte dei Rumori (The Art of Noises), stated that the industrial revolution had given modern men a greater capacity to appreciate more complex sounds. Russolo found traditional melodic music confining, and he envisioned noise music as its future replacement. Russolo designed and constructed a number of noise-generating devices called Intonarumori, and assembled a noise orchestra to perform with them. A performance of his Gran Concerto Futuristico (1917) was met with strong disapproval and violence from the audience, as Russolo himself had predicted. None of his intoning devices have survived, though recently some have been reconstructed and used in performances. Although Russolo's works bear little resemblance to modern noise music, his pioneering creations cannot be overlooked as an essential stage in the evolution of the several genres in this category. Many artists are now familiar with Russolo's manifesto. Next was Jay Watson - Detroit To Brooklyn Mixtape (Placenta Recordings #548), Mixed in Fall 2019 in Detroit, Michigan and Brooklyn NYC by Jay Watson, featuring the classic "A Million Suicides". Recorded before, during, and after Dental Work performed at Northeast Noise Fest at The Firehouse in Worchester, Massachusetts. Shout out to Steve Davis for having us!

Carolyn Watson, Paul Watson, Kim Watson, Jade Violet, Trumbullplex, Watabou, and everyone who helped make this release possible!!! Шумоизоляция - Hovinmaan Paperitehdas (Placenta Recordings #550) was the next release, on CD and digital. A Russian concept album about the life and death of a paper factory in Finland. Limited to 10 copies, 1st edition CD. "HAREM2020 - A book of collage art by Jay Watson" (Placenta Recordings #551) came next, A revisit to the defunct ‘zine we made 3 issues of DIY some years back, this time around we will be doing a 36 page collage book, professional quality like you would buy at BAM. We are changing the meaning of the word “HAREM” into something positive, it is basically the female chapter of our little family at Placenta Recordings, our little “gang”, destroying all corrupt men, in solidarity with us for life. A proceed of the profits made from this book will be spread out between local women and children’s shelters throughout our city of Detroit. This is about sticking together in numbers to destroy our oppressors. Typically men. I’ll tell you what. You don’t wanna fuck with HAREM/PLACENTA RECORDINGS...Next was K9 Hemorrhoids - "Garfield Is Dead" (Placenta Recordings #552). Originally released on Causticity Productions, re-issued in 2019 on CD by Placenta Recordings with an exclusive remix by Jay Watson of Dental Work. Released as a limited edition CD on Devil's Night. Next was Dental Work x RedSK - Tru Crime & Anti-Social Drug Abuse (Placenta Recordings #553 + Trashfuck Records). Released on 12" vinyl LP and CD on Halloween. Jay Watson and Patrick Harsh have been saying fuck trends and making Noise since the early 2000's. Both have discographies well past the 500+ release mark, doing splits and collaborations with more international artists than you could fit in the world's finest food court.These boys have turned into underground Noise celebs, with their middle fingers up and hats turned sideways saying FUCK THE POLICE the whole time like Ice-T or something. Here is a collection realized 13 years after they began working together, and it is highly recommended that you take LSD and pop this record on ASAP. Next up was Corot Ghost x Dental Work x Forest King x Watabou - Split (Placenta Recordings #555), Originally released on Placenta Recordings in 2010 as a limited edition CD-R handmade by Jay Watson in an edition of 100 numbered and stamped copies..Re-issued as a limited edition CD of 25 copies and a cassette version of 10 copies! Yet another re-issue followed: Bubblegum Octopus x Dental Work - My God Is The Cat King! (Re-Issue) (Placenta Recordings #556). Originally released as a limited edition CD-R of 200 copies on Placenta Recordings that featured a fold out poster of collage art by Jay Watson inside a clear, slim DVD case. They were hand burned and numbered, and now long gone. I recall a time where Bubblegum Octopus and Dental Work were doing a show at Far House in Ann Arbor, Michigan and were literally folding posters and assembling copies down to minutes before showtime...Lots of nostalgia here...BGO was one of the earliest finds for me when I discovered "internet music" and "net labels"...I remember downloading his stuff, contacting him, and immediately becoming pals...This formed into years of working together, a ton of shows together, and an eternal digital/IRL friendship. R.I.P. MySpace...Now available again in 2019 as a limited edition sealed CD of 25 copies with updated art and a bonus interview of BGO from WZRD FM Chicago...Finally, 5 years in the making we released Daisy Berkowitz and Dental Work - Collaboration (Placenta Recordings #557) on 12" vinyl LP, CD, and cassette.

I MISS TALKING ABOUT CROPSEY WITH HIM...SUCH A WONDERFUL SOUL...Next to bat was Dental Work - Body Melt The Album (Placenta Recordings #558) released on CD/digital. Jay Watson's tribute to the 1993 film Body Melt. Dental Work is the Detroit Murder City answer to the destruction of pop music, created as an extreme anxiety outlet for leader Jay Watson who maintained the project in the solo realm from 2006-2014, by then adding two full time members Justin Lee Smith and Sean Barry and a wide rotating door of guest collaborators. Hundreds of albums released around the world on labels such as Placenta Recordings, Grindcore Karaoke, Trashfuck Records, Scaglie De Rumore, System Breakdown Recordings, and many more fucked up labels from around the globe.

Once released on my friend's label Noise Park Activities in Salzburg, on CD-R, which has been covered with leaves for years, ready to be dug out of it's grave...Next we began pre-orders for SyckSyde - White Crosses - Resurrection Edition (Placenta Recordings #562) on cassette, Sycksyde was an influential American Horrorcore/Hip Hop group from Anderson, Indiana having inspired millions of rap acts and is part of a 2nd generation of Horrorcore rappers and groups. The group has been banned in over 36 countries and over 1,000 radio stations worldwide for their gory lyrics and onstage demonstrations. They have been often compared to Hardcore Punk icon GG Allin. Immediatley after that we launched the pre-order for NECRONOMIDOL - VOIDHYMN (IMPERIET IV + Placenta Recordings #563) on clear purple tinted cassette, which will ship in January 2020. NECRONOMIDOL's VOIDHYMN is their third full length, a 10 track album featuring new songs along with new versions of NECRONOMIDOL favorites.
