Report was an improvisational, dark ambient, band created by Matthew
Schultz, Eric Pounder and Chris Blazen in 1989. The experimental project
gained notoriety as one of the earliest dark ambient musical projects
stemming from the Industrial music genre.
The Chicago based
experimental band was signed to Invisible Records in 1990 and released
four CDs with that label. The band became notable for their use of the
sculptural dulcimer instrument known as the A.T.G. or Anti Tank Guitar
created by Matthew Schultz. Lab Report membership had always been in
rotation with special guests including Genesis P Orridge, Lydia Lunch,
Chris Connelly, Jonny Polonsky, Chris Blazen, Becky Allen, Kerry
Simonian, Derek Frederickson, Tom Slattery, Dan Burke and more.
Schultz went on as the head of Lab Report and released three more
albums with the Gein label. The project's musical style broadened to
covered a wide range and became increasingly multimedia.

A Sombre Soniks Charity Compilation for the Flood Victims in Serbia
(Released 30 June 30, 2014)
All income from the compilation will be used to buy supplies
directly for people and families affected by the flood.
half of May has brought the worst floods in the known history of
Serbia. Several towns and cities were almost completely submerged, many
lives lost, and the amount of people forced to flee their homes (and
lose everything in proces) is measured in thousands.
Even though I don't live in that country for some time, Serbia is a
place where I grew up and spend the biggest part of my life in. I know
how wonderful people there are (the fact that has usually been missed in
the rest of the world). For these reasons, I have started this charity
compilation, in order to provide at least some help to those who
suffered through the floods.
For the last few years I have been in touch with some of the most
amazing artists worldwide, and calling upon them to support this cause
brought the results I could have never expected. Their desire to help,
to donate a song and support this cause in any possible way was in one
word: epic! This shows the fact that we already know. Even in the
shadows where this kind of art is placed, there are those willing to
give their helping hand. Always sincere!
What we ended up with is a massive size compilation, with 65 songs and
over 6 hours of music that you have in front of you right now. Whole
income from this compilation is going to be used for helping the victims
of a flood, and by buying this compilation, you too have shown the
support for them. Thank you!
Also, big Thank you to each and every artist who has participated and
supported this album in any way. Last, but certainly not least, my
gratitude goes to my dear friend Priapus23 and his label Sombre Soniks
Studios, for publishing the compilation and incredible amount of
enthusiasm while doing so.
All income from the compilation will be used to buy supplies directly for people and families affected by the flood.
Keep spreading the word!
