Sorry for the delay, the laptop we record and edit on ceased functioning last week. We’re back up and running to bring you this episode! Jim Mroz (Lussuria) came to the studio to listen to and discuss Crawl Unit’s epic 1994 Aftermusic CD, and listen we did.
Our 12th episode and it just so happens to be Collapse 12 Floors, with guest Peter Rehberg, best known for his project PITA and the essential Editions Mego label. Peter lends some insight into the dawn of the digital era by discussing Merzbow’s earliest released computer album with us. Get under a table or stand in a doorframe as we get shook.
We finally dip our toes in the digital realm with 2002’s AMLUX, chosen by screenwriter Ben Collins (Super Dark Times). This record takes the three of us different places: Connelly gets locked inside a parking garage, Greh confesses his foolishness regarding post-2000s Merzbow, and Ben comes up with a movie pitch for Die Hard, but in Japan.
