Bonus mini episode time. We wanted to let everyone in on what’s going on over on our Patreon site, so we discuss Chop Shop’s “Discrete Emissions” 7” on Banned Production. This episode is also timely as Chop Shop will be making a rare live appearance at the Haters 40th anniversary in Oakland this Saturday, August 17th. We travel to a hazy past through modified speakers and sounds that just aren’t right.
This week head back to Japan and back to the ’90s to discuss one of the all time greats, MSBR. We listen to 1995’s “Metal Stricken Terror Action” on Banned Production and our minds are blown. We cover the late Koji Tano’s legacy and importance to the world of noise, read from an interview Greh did with Koji in 1999, and dissect the beauty of MSBR’s special packaging. Steady yourself for the electro suplex of MSBR.
This week Greh, Mike and Tara discuss “Dark Market Broadcast” by legendary artist John Duncan. We cover this magnificent album,… Read more John Duncan – Dark Market Broadcast
GX Jupitter-Larsen returns, the entire crew plays all formats of “Wind Licked Dirt”, and we discuss all things Haters. Topics include entropy, waves, math, professional wrestling, mail art, SRL, noise and so much more. Get out your pencils and Standard Jupitter-Larsen rulers for another invaluable lesson on the history of noise, direct from the source.
This week Greh and Mike head back in time and over to Italy to discuss MB’s “Mectpyo Bakterium.” There are also some new additions to the podcast that include a segment covering recent listens that will kick off each episode, as well as a new member of the on air squad — Research Assistant Tara Connelly. The trio discuss listening to MB late at night and in the dark, waves of sound heading into oblivion, and oil spreading atmosphere. Turn on a night light and dig in.
This week Greh and Mike sit down with Pat O’Neil and Mark Jameson, aka SKIN CRIME. We listened to the legendary compilation CD “Music Should Hurt” on Pat’s own Self Abuse label. We cover many classic ’90s noise bands from all over the globe, what it was like to put together a comp in the pre-internet age, running a noise label in the 90s, and a ton more. This won’t hurt one little bit.
Greh and Mike sit down with Pierre-Marc Tremblay of Ames Sanglantes to discuss the Yggdrasil / Eciton / Hermit split 10″on Darkness Productions from 1997. We get into Canadian noise at the end of the ’90s, the unique vision of each project, and the true spirit of the underground. DO IT YOURSELF!
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.
One last duo session to settle into the new mode, Greh and Mike been preparing for the Hospital fest in LA and since Junko is performing solo we figured we’d pop on 1996’s “Ferocity of Practical Life” 10″ by noise legends Hijokaidan, one of the longest running acts around. All-star lineup this time around, with classics Jojo and Junko Hiroshige, Toshiji Mikawa and Fumio Kosakai (Incapacitants) and Masami Akita! NOISE!
Mike and Greh got together to listen to Richard Ramirez’ 1997 CD “Memorial” on the Praxis Dr. Bearmann label from Germany. It’s a somber affair, dedicated to Richard’s friend Kevin Ogg who passed away the year prior.
