This week we pay tribute to one of the all time noise greats: Shohei Iwasaki aka Monde Bruits. We get stung all over with his debut cassette “Portuguese Man of War” on Vanilla Records. We explore his world of noise, his influences and his legacy. Join us as we get lost in the Japanese noise forest with a true legend.
This week we celebrate the life and work of Akifumi Nakajima aka Aube. We dive headfirst into “Spindrift”, the first release on his own G.R.O.S.S label. We explore his unique sound and visual design, discuss his passion for the noise underground, and read a few words from some artists that worked directly with him. There will never be enough words to truly describe his sound and his impact, but we will always have his noise. Listen to Aube.
It’s finally here, our first Skin Crime episode, after mentioning the project nearly every episode prior. Barbed wire, thumbtacks and fire all play a vital role in this week’s episode as we not only discuss Skin Crime’s “King of the Deathmatch” cassette, but also dig into the actual King of the Death Match and related wrestling matches. We dive onto a bed of nails, choke slam each other into thousands of thumbtacks and ascend the ladder in the middle of the ring to achieve the highest honor of becoming King of the Deathmatch. Never stay down, always kick out.
This week we take a little sidestep into one of the many tentacles of noise as we discuss industrial dark ambient project Inade and their “Burning Flesh” cassette from 1993. We embark a meditative trip through the gates of death, hear about Greh seeing Inade live and fall into the black water well that is this fantastic tape.
This week head back to Japan and back to the ’90s to discuss one of the all time greats, MSBR. We listen to 1995’s “Metal Stricken Terror Action” on Banned Production and our minds are blown. We cover the late Koji Tano’s legacy and importance to the world of noise, read from an interview Greh did with Koji in 1999, and dissect the beauty of MSBR’s special packaging. Steady yourself for the electro suplex of MSBR.
This week Greh, Mike and Tara discuss “Dark Market Broadcast” by legendary artist John Duncan. We cover this magnificent album,… Read more John Duncan – Dark Market Broadcast
