Mortar – self-titled

It’s the dead of winter and a Slaughter Productions tape felt appropriate for seasonal hibernation. Mortar’s self titled cassette fit the bill perfectly. Mortar is a necro project of Moreno Daldosso of Murder Corporation. Ancient times, old stones, sand, dirt, and storms are all present on this excellent 90s Italian cassette. Let this be the soundtrack to your crypt.

Contagious Orgasm – The Flow of Sound Without Parameter

Following up last week’s episode, we wanted to discuss an album by an artist from “Japanese/American Noise Treaty,” and we landed on Contagious Orgasm “The Flow of Sound Without Parameter” on Ground Fault. It’s a Series II CD and is as strange as it is wonderful. We love Ground Fault and we love Contagious Orgasm, so you can guess how we feel about this one. Hydrate your thirsty teeth and head out on your mission.

The Japanese/American Noise Treaty (with Mason Jones)

Class is back in session for another mandatory noise history lesson as we had a great discussion about “The Japanese/American Noise Treaty” with the man who curated it, Mason Jones. Mason gives us all the background and history of putting this mammoth document together. We get into the order, how artists were chosen, why some aren’t on it, the design and layout, and so much more. It’s truly one of the most important noise compilations of all time, and was incredible to get the story from the man responsible.

Hydra – Power

Hydra is an absolute favorite project of Noisextra and we felt is was a fine time to explore “Power.” We dive into this classic tape on Bloodlust! from 1996 and are filled with every emotion throughout the discussion of this cassette. The world lost Greg Scott in 2003, but he forever lives on in this and all his releases. All you need is force.

Cock E.S.P. – Greatest Dicks

We start off 2023 discussing some very serious noise artists with Cock E.S.P. “Greatest Dicks”” from 1996 on the one and only Pure. We get appropriately foul and dirty while discussing one of the most seminal, deep thinking and intelligent noise bands of all time. Cock E.S.P. mean it this time and they are definitely making it their business. Happy New Cock Noise Year!

In Conversation with Anthony Di Franco

Sometimes interviews slip through the cracks. Anthony DiFranco (Ramleh, JFK, Skullflower, more) joined us in the distant past and today our talk has be found and is transmitting to the world. With the recent JFK release on L.I.E.S, we were excited to unearth this conversation going over Di Franco’s history from discovering industrial and PE to working with Ramleh to his solo work and so much more.

Coil “Winter Solstice”

Today is the Winter Solstice and the most appropriate recording we could think of was Coil “Winter Solstice” EP. The final four songs in the Solstice series, this is the perfect way to ring in the holidays, especially with the stunning beauty of the final track. It’s our first episode on Coil, and rather than going with one of their full lengths, it was nice to take our first steps in the form of this EP, as there will certainly be more Coil as the years go on. Feel the moon’s pull… Christmas is now drawing near.

In Conversation with Hunting Lodge

Lon and Skott of legendary American industrial band Hunting Lodge join us for an in-depth discussion covering their entire output. 2022 marks the 40th anniversary of Hunting Lodge, and with multiple reissues of theirs rare release in the past handful of years, there’s no time like now to hear the history direct from the source. It’s a great talk with some true midwest DIY industrial stalwarts.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, Lon and Skott have fun talking about their least favorite shows among other things.

Year End 2022

2022 is slipping away so it’s time to rewind and discuss our favorite things of the year. This time around, we hear from multiple people including Jim Haras, Dominick Fernow, Richard Ramirez, Sean Ramirez Matzus, and many more. Neverending noise forever and ever. Happy Noise Year.

Merzbow & Christoph Heeman – Sleeper Awakes on the Edge of the Abyss

A collaboration that has come up on two recent Seven Inch Sundays, and one that was requested multiple times in our early podcast days, Merzbow & Christoph Heemann “Sleeper Awakes on the Edge of Abyss” is this week’s focus. An interesting and unexpected work, this album settles in quickly and brings up as many images as it does questions. It’s a great look at ’80s Merzbow through the lens of Christoph Heemann.
