The Japanese/American Noise Treaty (with Mason Jones)

Class is back in session for another mandatory noise history lesson as we had a great discussion about “The Japanese/American Noise Treaty” with the man who curated it, Mason Jones. Mason gives us all the background and history of putting this mammoth document together. We get into the order, how artists were chosen, why some aren’t on it, the design and layout, and so much more. It’s truly one of the most important noise compilations of all time, and was incredible to get the story from the man responsible.

Hydra – Power

Hydra is an absolute favorite project of Noisextra and we felt is was a fine time to explore “Power.” We dive into this classic tape on Bloodlust! from 1996 and are filled with every emotion throughout the discussion of this cassette. The world lost Greg Scott in 2003, but he forever lives on in this and all his releases. All you need is force.

Cock E.S.P. – Greatest Dicks

We start off 2023 discussing some very serious noise artists with Cock E.S.P. “Greatest Dicks”” from 1996 on the one and only Pure. We get appropriately foul and dirty while discussing one of the most seminal, deep thinking and intelligent noise bands of all time. Cock E.S.P. mean it this time and they are definitely making it their business. Happy New Cock Noise Year!

In Conversation with Hunting Lodge

Lon and Skott of legendary American industrial band Hunting Lodge join us for an in-depth discussion covering their entire output. 2022 marks the 40th anniversary of Hunting Lodge, and with multiple reissues of theirs rare release in the past handful of years, there’s no time like now to hear the history direct from the source. It’s a great talk with some true midwest DIY industrial stalwarts.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, Lon and Skott have fun talking about their least favorite shows among other things.

Contact Microphones with Crank Sturgeon

The original Trashware guest is back in the hot seat. Crank Sturgeon proposed a discussion on contact microphones, so in this episode we go over what a contact mic is, general applications, how to record and affix the mics and amplifying slightly more traditional instruments, why the contact microphone is the perfect noise instrument, contact mics vs other microphones, in the studio and in the field, using with synthesizers and modular, troubleshooting contact mic issues, and plenty of Cranky anecdotes!

In Conversation with Rat Bastard (To Live and Shave in LA, Laundry Room Squelchers, Scraping Teeth)

Ever wonder what it was like to hang out with the one and only Rat Bastard? Today’s episode will be allow you to find out as we had a fantastic talk with Rat and get into his early days in Florida to his time in To Live and Shave in LA and of course the Laundry Room Squelchers. Rat has stories for days, from running a studio, to wild times at Churchill’s and much more. Rat Bastard has never slept and neither should you.

In Conversation with Bill Orcutt (Harry Pussy)

Bill Orcutt of Harry Pussy joins us today for a great historical discussion on a different branch of noise. In the 90s along with bands like To Live and Shave in LA and Laundry Room Squelchers, Harry Pussy tore apart all semblance of good taste and set proper foundations ablaze. Miami in the ’90s was a wild place and Orcutt was right in the middle. We also get into his return to sound and his current work. What was music?
