Monde Bruits – Portuguese Man-Of-War

This week we pay tribute to one of the all time noise greats: Shohei Iwasaki aka Monde Bruits. We get stung all over with his debut cassette “Portuguese Man of War” on Vanilla Records. We explore his world of noise, his influences and his legacy. Join us as we get lost in the Japanese noise forest with a true legend.

Orphx – Fragmentation

This week we dive into the world of rhythmic noise with Orphx’s 1996 album “Fragmentation” on Malignant Records. The crew is completely blown away by Christina and Rich’s sound mastery, attention to detail and song title prowess. Dream imagery, cellular consciousness and brain biology are discuss through the lens of this ripper of a CD.

Aghast – Hexerei im Zwielicht der Finsternis

It’s October and time to stray a bit off the noise path onto a road filled with fog, fire and obscured ambient sounds with Aghast’s Hexerei im Zwielicht der Finsternis, a perfect soundtrack for autumn’s chill. We wander in the forest of tape hiss, off kilter timpani and dances of death. In addition, we discuss some recent horror movie viewing, as well as some favorite horror movie series. Turn out the lights, light a candle, and descend into the ancient ambiance of Aghast.

Aube – Spindrift

This week we celebrate the life and work of Akifumi Nakajima aka Aube. We dive headfirst into “Spindrift”, the first release on his own G.R.O.S.S label. We explore his unique sound and visual design, discuss his passion for the noise underground, and read a few words from some artists that worked directly with him. There will never be enough words to truly describe his sound and his impact, but we will always have his noise. Listen to Aube.

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.
