Songs that I wrote/played for my son during the first 3 months of 2013 whilst on paternity leave.

Isaac Henaghan - Toy Butterfly, Rattle, Squeaks and Laughs

The original concept/name was of course conceived in reaction to the alleged end of days, December 21'st 2012.  Some of the initial recordings were born that date.  The rest was conceived early 2013.

Pupa rated #2 Noise track of 2012

2. Lantern
"Pupa" (self-released)

New Yorkers Bryce Brushnefski and Joseph Henaghan feed codeine to their de-tuned guitars and stage a prolonged death match so epic, unrelenting, and crude that it'll help you get over the lack of Dead C product this year. These dudes make tons of noise in a slew of other bands and projects that are worth exploring, if this sort of thing is your jeweled chalice of lye.

Lantern - Triptophan Triptych

Reverse sonic prolapse vibratory medication.  If Bryce and I lived in the same town there would likely be a weekly Lantern release.  Magick should not be tailored to trick you, but to make you believe.

Bryce Brushnefski - Guitars, Drums, Rattle and Hum
Joseph Henaghan - Guitars, Drums, Stewarts Brand Energy Drink

Recorded 11/18/12 at 56 Elm in that ole hole.

Womb Crusher 3

The medium is the massage.  !  ? 

Womb Crusher:
Meghan Baker - Bass, Pitch Shifting
Joseph Henaghan - Guitar, 12" Diamond Saw Blade

We've been making a ritual of having Meghan up for a weekend or so.  This is when the crushing usually occurs.  We typically consume every single beer in the house, and then stay up until 4am listening to records in the library and talking about creating noise machines out of garbage and whatnot and what have you.

Recorded January 2013 at Brahmans Corners, Westerlo NY.

Once upon a time we played songs.  These songs had names.  Eventually, we became to lazy to call the songs by their names, and started referencing them as the number in the sequence which they were created  Song 1, song 5 etc.  Then we stopped feeling obligated to have singers, or "lyrics",  so gone were the song names, simply because the "songs" had no lyrics to derive a name from.  Then we stopped playing songs altogether.  We just played.  And play on we did....
