Christian Fennesz joins us today for a fantastic discussion. It’s the 25th anniversary of his first album “Hotel Paral.lel” so we take a look back at those early days, from meeting Peter Rehberg and how radical using a computer was, to his recent work and what it’s like being back in a bedroom studio. We were very grateful to get to talk to Fennesz and get a perspective from one of the stalwarts of Mego and 90s experimental computer sound.
With the return of the Self Abuse Murder Series, we wanted to put up one of our Patreon episodes on the original Murder Series over here on the regular feed. March to 1980s Soviet Russia with this month’s Case History as Skin Crime tackles the werewolf-like existence of Andrei Chikatilo on the “Monster” 7″. We get into the life of the Butcher of Rostov and how perfectly the noise relates to his murders. Stay away from train stations and woods, but keep this 7″ close. You never know who you will run into.
Bob Scott, the mastermind behind Xome, took time to sit down with us to discuss his many decades in the noise world. From living in Japan in the 90s to tricking Mike into thinking he saw him play in 1999, this was a super fun and informative talk. Xome is one of the greats that is still going to this day, so fill up a jar with mud and put this one on at your next party.
Grab a copy of the Sunday Sport, pull out your dirtiest pencil, and steel yourself for a true noise history lesson as we go in depth with All Brentnall of Mlehst and Bandaged Hand Produce. A true legend of noise, talking to All was incredible as he let us into the tangled web of Mlehst, from the early’ 90s all the way through today. Cry over spilt milk and discover the difficulty in crossing a field with one of the greatest to ever do it.
Adam Fritz, the man behind En Nihil, joins us for a rare talk about his history in the noise underground. We get into how he connected with Ron Lessard, Marco Corbelli, and more. En Nihil is currently in its 3rd era, and Adam gives us insight to all of his phases. Additionally, in the extra segment we get to the bottom of what the heck Adam did to Erik Hoffman for the cover of “Assertive Order of Obedience.”
Mental Destruction bring a truly unique take on industrial with “When Madness Strikes.” Standing apart from their peers, Mental Destruction was an orthodox Christian industrial band from Sweden.
Some Noisextra favorites are hitting the road for an east coast tour, so we thought it’d be a great opportunity to talk to all three projects involved — Black Leather Jesus, Moonbeam Terror, and Straight Pani
Satanic sexual madness cuts deep as we stab our ceremonial knives into Teatro Satanico “Mephitic Coitus” from 1994. Originally released on Hex Minora’s BV Tapes label and later re-released on Chondritic Sound, this cassette is for all the dirty rotten scoundrels. Give in to your secret impulses, give in to Teatro Satanico.
Felt like a good time to dig into a G.R.O.S.S tape, so Greh suggested Mortal Vision “Nacht Musik.” An early… Read more Mortal Vision – Nacht Musik
Jacob Kirkegaard joins us for a highly interesting discussion on birth, death and what goes on in between. Jacob’s recordings of the death process “Opus Mors,” is a new level for sound capture and we get into the thought and process behind this work. We also talk about his recordings in Chernobyl, waste management facilities, glaciers, geysers and much more. We can’t thank Jacob enough for taking time out of his trip to have this conversation.
