With the full NWN/Hospital Japan Fest line up announced, we go all in on Thirdorgan, the cyborg of night two. “Jinzonigen” is Thirdorgan’s 1998 LP on Harbinger Sound. We answer the questions posed in the track titles. We prepare for the dystopian future where Hakaider and Loch Ness Monster will lead us to new lands. Thirdorgan is the harshest of them all, and this LP showcases exactly why. Do you believe?
Haus Arafna – Children of God
Continuing with our look at classic albums of the past, we enter a world that is very close to Greh’s heart. Haus Arafna’s “Children of God” is a unique record in their own lane of industrial. Self-called “angst pop,” we get into the structured noise of this long running German project. Tune in for some electronic terrorism.
For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, we discuss the Galakthorrö label and why it is a standout among labels of a similar ilk.
Masonna – Noisextra
With the announcement of Masonna’s first set in years at the NWN/Hospital fest in Osaka, we instantly knew it was time to finally discuss the CD that is our namesake. Masonna “Noisextra” on the legendary Pure series packs every punch today that it did in 1995. We talk this album as well as the impact Masonna has had on all of us in our lives of noise. It’s all things Masonna today, and will be for the next year until we get to finally see the Sonic Devil himself live in Japan.
Dave Gilden discussion with Jim Haras
Jim Haras (Deterge) is releasing a massive Dave Gilden box set on his Fusty Cunt label. Jim was in town, so he came over to the Connelly household to have a talk about Gilden and the process of putting the box set together. Dave Gilden’s work was once of the least attainable, but there’s been a vast unearthing of his material in the past few years, and Jim’s box set will be a huge look at Gilden’s discography. In addition, we get into Jim’s noise history.
In Conversation with Blister Pack
The mountain men of Blister Pack join us today for a great talk on ’90s noise, true crime, video stores, and so much more. Emerson Murray and Nik Weisend were not only Blister Pack, but ran the Plague in Perspective label that focused on special packing. They both have solo projects — Nik as Hive and Emerson under his own name — and both have continued on different paths of art, from visual to the written word.
Brighter Death Now – Innerwar
Classic album overview time is here again. Brighter Death Now’s “Innerwar” is a pivotal album for industrial PE. The CD on Release was a staple in all 90s collections and it holds up better than ever to this day. A true landmark in the death industrial power electronics noise world, “Innerwar” is for everyone who’s had enough.
S-Core “My Candle Has Died”
S-Core simply exists. There is no beginning or end. “My Candle Has Died” has always been there, it just took S Core to tap into the stream and bring it to life. A perfect album on a perfect label. These things live in no time and in all times. S-Core resides in mind. S-Core forever and ever.

In Conversation with Christoph Heemann
Having recently discussed his collaboration CD with Merzbow, we thought it’d be a great time to have a conversation with Christoph Heemann. One of the main culprits behind H.N.A.S, Ultra, Mirror and so much more, Christoph provided some incredible insight and an equally incredible laugh. This is a great historical episode that looks at the underground from the ’80s and beyond.
For the extra segment on the Patreon, Christoph talks about working with David Tibet and being a part of Current 93’s “Soft Black Stars.”
