Juan Mendez (Silent Servant) joins us to discuss a major root in industrial sound — Cabaret Voltaire’s “The Voice of America.” Juan talks about the importance of this record in relation to his work as well as the entire landscape of industrial and experimental music. We also get into his history as Silent Servant, his work with Sandwell District and more. The damage is done and the messages have been received.
The time has come for us to take on one of the greatest works of the 20th century, Con-Dom’s “The Eighth Pillar : A Confession Of Faith.” We dive deep, not only into the album and the work of Mike Dando, but also into the life of the man that inspired the album, T.E. Lawrence, as well as his monumental book “The Seven Pillars of Wisdom.” Let us walk in the way of insight.
David Reed of Envenomist joins is to discuss “Cold Summer” by Mick Harris’s void ambient project Lull. We go many places with this hauntingly staggering album, from the artificial jungle to the sanctum just out of reach. David also discusses some of his recent work, as well as his early days getting into noise. Find your isolation shelter and fall slowly into Lull.
We couldn’t have been more excited to sit down with Andy Bolus aka Evil Moisture. Andy has been going strong since 1990 and we cover a lot about his early days and early releases. We also touch on what dreams are to us, as well as Greh’s fantastic cocktails. Another noise history lesson is in session.
Today we bring you one of our favorite episodes, culled from the Noisextra Patreon. You can see how we do… Read more Mlehst / Brume – Unusual Methods 7″
It was an honor to talk with one of our favorite bands, Smell & Quim. A great history lesson, we go from off the wall Quim-ness to earnest chats about the early days, costumes throughout time and baking bread. Hear Tara predict the props used the following night. Head Dave describe what “the English Method” is. Hear a great talk with one of the all-time legends. And remember, “life’s too short not to bake your own bread.”
