We will never get enough of Slaughter Productions, so we decided to take a look at 3 individual cassettes released by the label: Stratvm Terror “The Only True Septic Whore,” Slogun “A Breed Apart,” and Contagious Orgasm “Defective Merchandise.” All 3 tapes represent different countries and styles that highlight the curation of Slaughter. We add a cassette compilation – “Slaughter Age 95” – on the Extra Noisextra for our patrons, showcasing Marco’s knack for putting together outstanding comps.

Stefan Aune joins us to discuss Hands To “Decesh” tape from 1988. Stefan has been working with Jeph Jerman, the man behind Hands To, and brings some great behind the scenes knowledge for this fantastic artifact from 80s cassette culture. Play this episode through your body and note the results.
The junk orchestra is tuning up as we sift through debris with Ferial Confine “The Full Use of Nothing.” Squeals becomes notes, layers become voices, and chaos becomes ambient. An inspiring chunk of 1980s UK noise, this album leads us out of the mundane into the nothingness of total sound.
Before there was Brighter Death Now there was Lille Roger, and we head back to 1985 to discuss his “For Life” cassette. It is a wonderful soundtrack to counteract the monotonous hopelessness of the mundane, as Tara attests to in this episode. Listen and raise the undead.
Chris Sienko, our most guested guest, returns and brings the deep knowledge on TAC “If it Fits” on Spite. While all being big fans of Spite, none of us were quite familiar with TAC, and Sienko rectifies that with a heap of thoughts and info on this fairly obscure project from the golden era. In addition, Chris breaks down some of his favorite Spite releases.
‘Tis the season to hang the mistletoe, pour the eggnog and break out Smell & Quim’s “The Christmas Album” cassette. Dave Walklett lent his voice to give some background and ideas behind this tape as we trim the tree to the rambunctious noise contained within. This Christmas, march to the Quim Republic with Noisextra.
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.
As nearly every classic Japanese noise artist has sited Tangerine Dream as a huge influence, we thought it was time to cover them and their “Zeit” double album from 1972. One of the very first full on experimental ambient records, “Zeit” sends us all on an abstract sonic path while we dig up the roots of what makes up everyone from Aube to Merzbow to Nord and countless other noise legends. Touch the haunting heavens with this masterpiece of experimental art.
