Welcome

elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.

Please let me know if you like the occasional artwork that I have been posting, or if you would prefer for me to strictly make music related posts. I thought the artwork would be a refreshing addition for those times when I'm not able to update as often as I would like.

Nice post, i forgot about this artist.

I also like Joe Coleman, who i think is similar in style and theme. Coleman uses single hair brushes for very fine detail (or at least he did 15 years ago when i first got into him).

grapepowder: Thanks for the feedback. I'm familiar with Joe Coleman's work also. A friend introduced me to him a few years ago. The detail and creativity that goes into both artists' work is absolutely mind boggling.

Thanks for reminding me of Coleman though. I might post some of his work soon.

Nice! I met Robert back in '99 when the record/comic shop I worked at hosted him at Dragon*Con. He was very mellow, his wife did most of the talking (she was cool, thank god). He signed books for us and got my name wrong. He felt so bad about it he sent me a corrected copy! Oh yeah! My boss took him to an autopsy! They were visibly shaken - it was a murder victim. Wow, that is morbid stuff!

Mars: Thanks for the interesting story. The autopsy bit sounds especially interesting. Considering his artwork, I would assume that Mr. Williams would have loads to talk about, but then again gifted men of genius don't always open up quickly to others. Which books did he sign for you (if you don't mind me asking)?
