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.
I’m joined again by Mike Connelly, along with our friend Bill Hutson (Rale, Tattered Syntax, clipping.) who chose 1995’s GREEN WHEELS CD+5″ from Self Abuse Records to discuss. We try to pronounce the track titles, talk about why Merzbow is THE ONE, and the sterilization of “bad sounds” from noise.
For this first episode, I speak with Mike Connelly (Clay Rendering, Failing Lights, Gods of Tundra, et al.) about a mutual favorite Merzbow record, TAUROMACHINE. Released in 1998 on Release/Relapse records, it’s a landmark of harsh noise that impacted both of us heavily. Also I mention fractals.
