In Conversation with Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura)

Iggor Cavalera (Sepultura, Cavalera Conspiracy) joins us for an incredible discussion. Iggor provided the perfect DJ set throughout Day 1 of the NWN/Hospital Fest, capturing the spirit of what the festival was all about. We go into his history from starting Sepultura as a 13 year old in Brazil, to playing with Boredoms in Japan, to collaborating with Prurient and Power Trip, to his current noise explorations and tons more. Iggor has carried the torch of the underground since the early 80s and the flame still burns!

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, Iggor talks about his gear, field recording in the Amazon, record shopping with Merzbow in Japan and more. This 20 minute segment is in the middle of the episode on the patreon feed.

Audio Drudge #7

It’s another magazine episode as we take a look at “Audio Drudge” #7. This issue was picked partly for its accessibility, but also because of the Caul tapes that Greh scored in Japan. In addition to Caul, this issue has interviews with Allegory Chapel Ltd, Contrastate, a section on VHS, and plenty of reviews. It’s always a pleasure looking to the past via printed matter.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, Greh tells us about setting up his new studio. He goes over his plans, purchases and much more.

Various Artists – Bring on the Shits

The Connellys scored a copy of “Bring on the Shits” on Bandaged Hand Produce while in Japan thanks to Greh and we wanted to go over this classic 1995 cassette comp for today’’’s episode. An absolute stand out 90s compilation, this one brings together artists from disparate corners of the noise world and places them within the Bandage Hand universe. The results are stunning. Mlehst himself supplied us with thoughts and info and we relay them throughout our talk.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon we are putting up the entire first episode of Live Crashing Headfolds. Two hours of a brand new stellar noise radio show!

In Conversation with The Hearing Trumpet

The Hearing Trumpet was one of the most important noise bands for Greh’s entry into the underground and we got a chance to talk with Dave and Greg, the duo that is the Hearing Trumpet. They provide a fascinating history of 80s and 90s noise in Michigan with a ton of great stories. One can tell immediately the connection these two have and the conversion is infectious. Book a show, set up, and leave.

Noise Ephemera

Greh began organizing his noise fliers, postcards, stickers, and more so we got together to go thru his collection. We talk about ways to archive and store these items, and the importance of keeping noise ephemera. In addition, we have a pretty extensive recent listening section.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, we posted a video of going through some of Greh’s items, some that are mentioned on the episode and some exclusive to the video.

In Conversation with Davin Brainard (Princess Dragon-Mom, Time Stereo)

Davin Brainard of Princess Dragon Mom and Time Stereo joins us to head back to his early days of noise. Davin worked at Record Collector in the late 80s throughout the 90s and supplied Greh and the greater Michigan area with classic noise releases. In addition, Davin brought MSBR, Government Alpha, and Aube to the US. We get into all of this and more with an original of the scene.

For ExtraNoisextra on the patreon, a big question about the Fab .44 Pure CD is answered with history behind the project. Also, Davin talks about seeing hardcore shows in the 80s. These two segments are in the middle of the episode.

Various Artists – Noise Forest

We are too excited for Japan so we delve into a classic comp that emanated out of Osaka — “Noise Forest.” A truly mandatory CD, “Noise Forest” brings together a powerhouse of early 90s Japanese noise stalwarts such as Merzbow, Masonna, CCCC, Mode Bruits and more. Traverse with us and get lost on the “Noise Forest.”

For the ExtraNOISEXTRA segment on the patreon, we go over multiple versions and sessions of Merzbow “Travelling” that was released by Slowdown Records.

Various Artists – Excelsis: A Dark Noel

The season’s bells were ringing for us to cover the classic Projekt Records compilation “Excelsis: A Dark Noel.” The original dark Christmas comp, it ranges from ambient and abstraction to more traditional takes on holiday classics. Fill your cups with eggnog and enjoy the seasonal darkness.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, we discuss other albums and bands we tend to listen to in the early winter.

Adventures of Huckleberry Finn VHS

It’s been referenced many times throughout the years on Noisextra, especially on our recent Skin Crime episode, so we felt it was time to finally discuss the “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” VHS. “Huck Finn” documents the 1997 tour featuring the Haters, Emil Beaulieau, the Haters, Skin Crime, Crank Sturgeon, and Angst Hase Pfeffer Nase. It’s an absolute classic VHS and we got some inside info from some participants. Get lost on the back roads with us and “Huck Finn.”

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, Ron Lessard granted us permission to put up the entire “Huck Finn” VHS. Head over to the Noisextra patreon to view in full!
