KK Null – Saishiyu Bushitsu

KK Null’s “Saishiyu Butshitsu” LP from 1985 was recommended to us and we were all blown away. Brand new to us, this album hits all the right notes. In the moment physical brutality brings us to many different spaces in our brain. KK Null has a widely varied discography, but this LP sits firmly in the land of pure noise. A new favorite for Noisextra.

In Conversation with Nigel Ayers of Nocturnal Emissions

We were delighted to have Nigel Ayers of Nocturnal Emissions join us for a fascinating discussion. To celebrate the release of the new book “Electronic Resistance”, Nigel took us back to the early days of industrial culture through the lens of Nocturnal Emissions. We get into working with MB and SPK, early mail art contacts, and how NE’s approach evolved throughout the years. Another mandatory history lesson is now in session.

Grim – Folk Music

Enter a place of mystery with Grim’s “Folk Music” album from 1986. There’s really no other album like it, and we get wrapped up in its blend of austerity, violence, and pure vision. We go from places of worship to rooms filled with oil drums to the Alps and many more places in between. Throw out all expectations and embrace the world of Grim.

Hanatarash – Hanatarash (with guest Matt Purse)

Matt Purse (Oxen, Unsustainable Social Condition) brought us a major noise LP to discuss — the first Hanatarash album on Alchemy. Matt’s love and knowledge of Hanatarash and all of Eye’s work is evident and incredibly exciting. Throw out any regard for your safety, fire up the bulldozer, and plow into this legendary band and album.
