In Conversation with Drew McDowall (part 2)

It’s the second part of our talk with Drew McDowall and we discuss joining Coil and the albums he helped create and finish with his recent solo work. Drew provides fantastic insight about the creation of these classic albums and describes some of the process of curating his solo box set. Another great first-hand industrial history lesson!

In Conversation with Drew McDowall (part 1)

UK industrial history class is in session. Drew McDowall sat down with us for a long candid discussion covering his entire history. For this first of two episodes, Drew tells us about his beginnings in the 70s to falling in with Psychic TV and eventually Coil. It’s an incredible first hand account of the early industrial days. In part 2, we get into Drew joining Coil and go all the way thru to his current solo output.

Various Artists – The Beast 666

Enter a mysterious realm with the classic Nekrophile Rekords compilation “The Beast 666.” A truly legendary release, we discuss all the details and references with the titles, cover art and more. Assume the entry pose and let the sea of Cefalu wash over your mind’s landscape. “The Beast 666” is one of the great artifacts of the industrial underground.

Controlled Bleeding – Distress Signals

It’s our first episode on a Broken Flag cassette, and Controlled Bleeding “Distress Signals” felt like the appropriate entry to dive into. Controlled Bleeding have always taken their own path, and even this early on, we see glimpses of zones they will enter in the future. This soundtrack for nihilism will rub you raw.

Tetsuo: The Iron Man

“Tetsuo : The Iron Man” is a film that has been an influence on countless noise and industrial artists, so for a different style episode, we cover this legendary Japanese film. Metal fetish, sexual obsession and pure do-it-yourself underground aesthetics place this movie firmly in the Noisextra world. For many people, this was their first taste of Japanese extremity, for two Noisextra hosts this is their first time watching. How did they feel? Pierce your thigh with a metal rod and find out.

In Conversation with Christoph Heemann

Having recently discussed his collaboration CD with Merzbow, we thought it’d be a great time to have a conversation with Christoph Heemann. One of the main culprits behind H.N.A.S, Ultra, Mirror and so much more, Christoph provided some incredible insight and an equally incredible laugh. This is a great historical episode that looks at the underground from the ’80s and beyond.

For the extra segment on the Patreon, Christoph talks about working with David Tibet and being a part of Current 93’s “Soft Black Stars.”

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.
