Sonar – s/t

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.

Dead Body Love – Maximum Dose

The Pure series enters our ears again in the harshest way possible with Dead Body Love “Maximum Dose.” Mike attempts to turn it down, Tara scolds Mike and won’t let him, and Greh runs his girlfriend out of the room. These are all proper reactions to this slice of 90s Italian noise, courtesy of the most important series in noise.

Atrax Morgue – Woundfucker

We embark on a yearly Halloween tradition as we go deep on Atrax Morgue “Woundfucker,” recorded on Halloween of 1994. An album that has been with all of us for as long as we can remember, “Woundfucker” never fails to affect all of our souls. We relay some of Marco Corbelli’s thoughts via old interviews and dissect what we revere about Atrax Morgue.

The Ghost Orchid – An Introduction to EVP

Voices from somewhere beyond interrupt our signal as we discuss “The Ghost Orchid – An Introduction to EVP” CD from 1999. Keeping with the Halloween season, we talk ghosts, the unexplained, as well as the history of EVP recording and the main researchers behind the study of this phenomena. Set your dial to a ghost frequency and hear what can be heard.

In Conversation with Orphx

With the upcoming “Fragmentation” 4 LP set on Hospital Productions, we had the pleasure to chat with Christina Sealey and Rich Oddie of Orphx. We go into their early days of warehouse shows and noise culture. A fascinating look at a pocket of sound experimentation emanating from a small Canadian enclave, Orphx are one of the most unique noise projects of any era.

In Conversation with Dominick Fernow, part 2

In part two of our discussion with Dominick Fernow, we get into his first months in Providence, leading up to a pilgrimage to Lowell, MA on Halloween 1999. Before leaving for Providence, Dominick tells a story of attempting to book a show for a noise legend in Madison. Grab a walkman and some noise tapes and come along for some more invaluable noise history.

In Conversation with Dominick Fernow, part 1

In the first of two episodes, Dominick Fernow joins us to discuss the very beginnings of Prurient and Hospital Productions. We begin the journey in ’90s Wisconsin as he navigates the worlds of death metal and techno, which eventually leads to the noise underground. While the three of us have all known Dominick for nearly two decades, we all learned plenty of new and incredible information about his most distant past. Join us for some highly enlightening noise history.

Noisextra is assisting Hospital Productions to compile a live Prurient box set commemorating the 25th anniversary of the project. If any listeners have a live recording, video or radio show from the years 1997-2006, please email gang@noisextra.com and we will go from there.
