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.
Blake Edwards (Vertonen, Crippled Intellect Productions, Ballast NVP) delivers the heavy knowledge on one of industrial culture’s originators by bringing Z’EV “An Uns Memonto” CD for us to explore. Blake worked directly with Z’V to release this obscure material, and he relays the process of putting it together as well as his continuing work with Z’EV up to Z’EV’s unfortunate passing. Set your CD players to “random” and see what happens.
The Pure series strikes again with Knurl “Nervescrap.” To-the-point noise from north of the border courtesy of this long running project. Get trashy, get junky, and tear metal to shreds. Will you make it across the border? Cranking this CD will certainly help.
Kyle Wright (Diophantine Discs/Dysthymia) joins us for a conversation on the album he always tests a new stereo with—Bad Sector… Read more Bad Sector – Polonoid (with Kyle Wright)
As we’ve discussed many Drone Records 7″s on Seven Inch Sunday, we thought it’d be a good time to cover the label’s flagship band Maeror Tri and their “Language of Flames and Sound” CD on Old Europa Cafe. Your brain waves may wash ashore on new lands, but the unfamiliar surroundings will prove rewarding. Blur the hemispheres.
Everyone is breaking their own rules as we dissect Sickness’ “I Have Become the Disease That Made Me” (2002). We are honored that Chris Goudreau, the man behind the project, agreed to break his own rule and lend his personal perspective to this episode. We are doubly pleased that Erik Hoffman, of Ground Fault Recordings, also agreed to share some of his memories regarding the history of this seminal work. Join us, as we piece together an audio documentary exploring the precision, nuance, and excitation of this classic noise album.
Adult film star Charlotte Sartre joins us to discuss Premature Ejaculation’s “Anesthesia” album from 1992. We not only delve into the impact and nuance of this album, but also Charlotte’s career in porn and the influence Rozz Willams has on her fascinating path. Plus, she schools us on the finer points of spiders and leeches. You must be 18 or older to enjoy this episode.
We end the year with an all time favorite of Greh’s in the form of MSBR & Blazen y Sharp “Mass for Dead Insects” CD. Dark atmospheric noise spills into the room from a futuristic past. Greh discusses his relationship with this album and we go all in on this unique 90s noise collaboration.
‘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.
Stephen Petrus (Murderous Vision/Live Bait Recording Foundation) joins us to discuss the classic “Death Odors” compilation on Slaughter Productions.

This episode is coming out in tandem with a brand new comp that Stephen has curated entitled “Dies Natalis Invicti Solis” featuring Brighter Death Now, Deutsch Nepal, Contrastate and many more. The CD will be available for pre order on Friday December 4th.
