Ten inches of rusted metal junks eclipse all light with K2 “Anybody Can’t Catch Up With This” on Ant Zen. The material on this record is based on the classic album “The Rust,” so we compare both releases and discuss why 10″s are such a great format for noise. Additionally, Tara teaches us about the actual mountain K2.
Kyle Wright (Diophantine Discs/Dysthymia) joins us for a conversation on the album he always tests a new stereo with—Bad Sector… Read more Bad Sector – Polonoid (with Kyle Wright)
As we’ve discussed many Drone Records 7″s on Seven Inch Sunday, we thought it’d be a good time to cover the label’s flagship band Maeror Tri and their “Language of Flames and Sound” CD on Old Europa Cafe. Your brain waves may wash ashore on new lands, but the unfamiliar surroundings will prove rewarding. Blur the hemispheres.
Another noise history lesson is in session with our guest Mason Jones. From the rising tide of early ’90s Japanese noise to the “Japanese American Noise Treaty,” Mason was directly involved in shining a spotlight onto the noise underground. His project Trance has a CD of material from 1991 called “Ancient History” out today from Troniks/Helicopter.
Adult film star Charlotte Sartre joins us to discuss Premature Ejaculation’s “Anesthesia” album from 1992. We not only delve into the impact and nuance of this album, but also Charlotte’s career in porn and the influence Rozz Willams has on her fascinating path. Plus, she schools us on the finer points of spiders and leeches. You must be 18 or older to enjoy this episode.
We end the year with an all time favorite of Greh’s in the form of MSBR & Blazen y Sharp “Mass for Dead Insects” CD. Dark atmospheric noise spills into the room from a futuristic past. Greh discusses his relationship with this album and we go all in on this unique 90s noise collaboration.
‘Tis the season to hang the mistletoe, pour the eggnog and break out Smell & Quim’s “The Christmas Album” cassette. Dave Walklett lent his voice to give some background and ideas behind this tape as we trim the tree to the rambunctious noise contained within. This Christmas, march to the Quim Republic with Noisextra.
Randy Yau joins us for a discussion on his work, both sonic and visual, and we couldn’t have been more honored. His live sets are stuff of legend, and he gets into preparing for a set as well as his recording process (hint: bathrooms are involved). For this important noise history lesson, we will provide the paper, but you need to bring your own celery.
Stephen Petrus (Murderous Vision/Live Bait Recording Foundation) joins us to discuss the classic “Death Odors” compilation on Slaughter Productions. Petrus talks about the importance of compilations to his journey, in terms of both listening and releasing. This episode is coming out in tandem with a brand new comp that Stephen has curated entitled “Dies Natalis Invicti Solis” featuring Brighter Death Now, Deutsch Nepal, Contrastate and many more. The CD will be available for pre order on Friday December 4th.
Rhythmic noise puts us squarely in a sci-fi future as we ride the space ways with Sonar’s eponymous debut album. Our minds radiate and we sink into the waters of swampheaven with this CD of head churn electronics. Peek behind the metal doors and witness the medical experiments in progress.
