Zone Nord – Roferon A

It’s our first foray into RRR’s Pure series as we head over to France for Zone Nord’s “Roferon A” album. We get down in the dirt with this obscure project, discuss early experiences calling RRRecords, and Tara espouses some noise show wisdom.

Skin Crime – King of the Deathmatch

It’s finally here, our first Skin Crime episode, after mentioning the project nearly every episode prior. Barbed wire, thumbtacks and fire all play a vital role in this week’s episode as we not only discuss Skin Crime’s “King of the Deathmatch” cassette, but also dig into the actual King of the Death Match and related wrestling matches. We dive onto a bed of nails, choke slam each other into thousands of thumbtacks and ascend the ladder in the middle of the ring to achieve the highest honor of becoming King of the Deathmatch. Never stay down, always kick out.

Inade – Burning Flesh

This week we take a little sidestep into one of the many tentacles of noise as we discuss industrial dark ambient project Inade and their “Burning Flesh” cassette from 1993. We embark a meditative trip through the gates of death, hear about Greh seeing Inade live and fall into the black water well that is this fantastic tape.

Chop Shop – Discrete Emissions

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.

MSBR – Metal Stricken Terror Action

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.

The Haters – Wind Licked Dirt

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.

Various – Music Should Hurt

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.
