Last year (2010), Terence Hannum from Locrian embarked upon an ambitious monthly zine project that culminated in a January 2011 exhibition of zines and drawings that fully realize his artistic vision of the intersection between music, rock and roll, heavy metal, black metal, drone metal, religion, spiritualism, worship, ritual, tradition... For March 2011, he approached his zine fetish from a somewhat different angle, focusing on my crotch, I mean, BLOODYMINDED...

For 2011 LOCRIAN member Terence Hannum will be making a publication every other month. January's NEGATIVE LITANIES was the compendium documenting the monthly 2010 series and exhibition and for March we are proud to present ABLATION.

ABLATION. contains video stills cut from a video Terence Hannum shot featuring a live set of power-electronics group BLOODYMINDED originally intended to be edited into an installation but never quite finding the right cut. This set dates from 2007 when Bloodyminded played with Carlos Giffoni, Burning Star Core and Prurient at the Flowershop in Chicago.

Instead of being cut into a video the images were removed as stills from the source footage, enlarged and placed into a new sequence that emphasizes the dark setting and intensity of this unique group's intense live performance. The title of this zine derives from Mark Solotroff's inimitable lyrics to the song "Genital Panic" from the album Gift Givers and seeks to link the zine's process with its subject one of removal and excision.
