In Conversation with Ike Yard (Stuart Argabright & Michael Diekmann)

We found ourselves in the empty dark alleyways of early ’80s NYC with Stuart Argabright and Michael Diekmann of the legendary Ike Yard. Stuart and Michael take us through their entire history up to today. We also get into Stuart’s band Black Rain, his work with William Gibson, and plenty more. Ike Yard sits in a unique and strange place in the dark underground, and this discussion keeps the paranoia alive.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, we get into what Ike Yard was like live in the early 80s as well as the process of reforming the band in the 2000s. This segment is in the middle of the episode on the patreon feed.

In Conversation with Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura)

Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura, Cavalera Conspiracy) joins us for an incredible discussion. Iggor provided the perfect DJ set throughout Day 1 of the NWN/Hospital Fest, capturing the spirit of what the festival was all about. We go into his history from starting Sepultura as a 13 year old in Brazil, to playing with Boredoms in Japan, to collaborating with Prurient and Power Trip, to his current noise explorations and tons more. Iggor has carried the torch of the underground since the early 80s and the flame still burns!

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, Iggor talks about his gear, field recording in the Amazon, record shopping with Merzbow in Japan and more. This 20 minute segment is in the middle of the episode on the patreon feed.

Audio Drudge #7

It’s another magazine episode as we take a look at “Audio Drudge” #7. This issue was picked partly for its accessibility, but also because of the Caul tapes that Greh scored in Japan. In addition to Caul, this issue has interviews with Allegory Chapel Ltd, Contrastate, a section on VHS, and plenty of reviews. It’s always a pleasure looking to the past via printed matter.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, Greh tells us about setting up his new studio. He goes over his plans, purchases and much more.

Various Artists – Bring on the Shits

The Connellys scored a copy of “Bring on the Shits” on Bandaged Hand Produce while in Japan thanks to Greh and we wanted to go over this classic 1995 cassette comp for today’’’s episode. An absolute stand out 90s compilation, this one brings together artists from disparate corners of the noise world and places them within the Bandage Hand universe. The results are stunning. Mlehst himself supplied us with thoughts and info and we relay them throughout our talk.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon we are putting up the entire first episode of Live Crashing Headfolds. Two hours of a brand new stellar noise radio show!

NWN/Hospital Productions Japan Fest

We have returned! Back from Japan and full of excitement as we recap our entire time at the NWN/Hospital Productions Japan Fest. From the sets to the atmosphere to the country itself, this is a jam-packed episode stacked to the brim. Support the underground and support noise!!

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, we go over all the other things we did in Japan such as wrestling, Trader Vic’s, Godzilla’s head, and much more! 30 minutes worth of tales!

More Questions? More Answers!

We wanted to do one more episode before heading across the ocean, so we answered more listener questions. Japanese noise, Cold Meat Industry, sample gathering and much more are discussed today.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, we answer more questions for about 20 extra minutes.

In Conversation with The Hearing Trumpet

The Hearing Trumpet was one of the most important noise bands for Greh’s entry into the underground and we got a chance to talk with Dave and Greg, the duo that is the Hearing Trumpet. They provide a fascinating history of 80s and 90s noise in Michigan with a ton of great stories. One can tell immediately the connection these two have and the conversion is infectious. Book a show, set up, and leave.
