In Conversation with Anthony Di Franco

Sometimes interviews slip through the cracks. Anthony DiFranco (Ramleh, JFK, Skullflower, more) joined us in the distant past and today our talk has be found and is transmitting to the world. With the recent JFK release on L.I.E.S, we were excited to unearth this conversation going over Di Franco’s history from discovering industrial and PE to working with Ramleh to his solo work and so much more.

Coil “Winter Solstice”

Today is the Winter Solstice and the most appropriate recording we could think of was Coil “Winter Solstice” EP. The final four songs in the Solstice series, this is the perfect way to ring in the holidays, especially with the stunning beauty of the final track. It’s our first episode on Coil, and rather than going with one of their full lengths, it was nice to take our first steps in the form of this EP, as there will certainly be more Coil as the years go on. Feel the moon’s pull… Christmas is now drawing near.

Metgumbnerbone – Ligeliahorn

Sean Ragon (Cult of Youth) was the perfect person to join us to uncover the classic Metgumbnerbone “Ligeliahorn” LP on A-Mission Records from 1983. A truly mysterious project, Metgumbnerbone creates their own world and we are all more than happy to walk around the industrial ruins and abandoned mills where the recordings were made. This album is a staple for post-industrial and is cloaked in a fantastic mythology ripe for discovery.

In Conversation with Mlehst

Grab a copy of the Sunday Sport, pull out your dirtiest pencil, and steel yourself for a true noise history lesson as we go in depth with All Brentnall of Mlehst and Bandaged Hand Produce. A true legend of noise, talking to All was incredible as he let us into the tangled web of Mlehst, from the early’ 90s all the way through today. Cry over spilt milk and discover the difficulty in crossing a field with one of the greatest to ever do it.

In Conversation with Nigel Ayers of Nocturnal Emissions

We were delighted to have Nigel Ayers of Nocturnal Emissions join us for a fascinating discussion. To celebrate the release of the new book “Electronic Resistance”, Nigel took us back to the early days of industrial culture through the lens of Nocturnal Emissions. We get into working with MB and SPK, early mail art contacts, and how NE’s approach evolved throughout the years. Another mandatory history lesson is now in session.

Caroline K – Now Wait For Last Year

Enter a world of artificial time and nature with “Now Wait for Last Year” by Caroline K. As a member of Nocturnal Emissions, Caroline helped craft a strain of early industrial, but by the time her only solo album was released, a new landscape of sound emerged. This is a very special and singular album from 1987, and we all get swept away by its scope.

Noisextra Discuss The New Blockaders

Spit on works of art and stand against nothing at all as we discuss The New Blockaders. This week we present the audio of the first Noisextra video done for the Tusk Festival. We go into the early history of The New Blockaders and relay thoughts on TNB from Ron Lessard, GX Jupiter Larsen, Dominick Fernow, and Chris Sienko. Anti anti anti anti anti anti anti anti anti…
