he annual Atrax Morgue episode has arrived. This year, we place a bag over our heads with “Death-Orgasm Connector.” A CD from 2003, this album distills the greatness of Atrax Morgue into 10 of his most potent tracks. It’s never a bad time to listen to Atrax Morgue, but the end of October is truly the perfect atmosphere for “Death-Orgasm Connector. The game is closed. Marco Corbelli forever.
For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon we each chose an Italian horror movie to dissect, as is our Atrax episode tradition. This segment is over 30 minutes.
After a slew of interviews (with plenty more to come), we head back to our goal of covering every CD on Pure with Aube “Purification to Numbness.” The single source landscape of Aube hit is harsh way on this album. We also discuss the “Luminescence” VHS, and Greh talks about seeing him live in 2001. Aube forever.
Continuing with our look at classic albums of the past, we enter a world that is very close to Greh’s heart. Haus Arafna’s “Children of God” is a unique record in their own lane of industrial. Self-called “angst pop,” we get into the structured noise of this long running German project. Tune in for some electronic terrorism.
For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, we discuss the Galakthorrö label and why it is a standout among labels of a similar ilk.
With the announcement of Masonna’s first set in years at the NWN/Hospital fest in Osaka, we instantly knew it was time to finally discuss the CD that is our namesake. Masonna “Noisextra” on the legendary Pure series packs every punch today that it did in 1995. We talk this album as well as the impact Masonna has had on all of us in our lives of noise. It’s all things Masonna today, and will be for the next year until we get to finally see the Sonic Devil himself live in Japan.
We remain in the zone for stone cold classics, and it felt like a fitting time to revisit some MB.… Read more MB – Aktivitat
Classic album overview time is here again. Brighter Death Now’s “Innerwar” is a pivotal album for industrial PE. The CD on Release was a staple in all 90s collections and it holds up better than ever to this day. A true landmark in the death industrial power electronics noise world, “Innerwar” is for everyone who’s had enough.
In keeping with tradition, we dive into the waters of field recordings for February and this time we discuss on of the classics of the genre – “Weather Report” by Chris Watson. Having spent time in Cabaret Voltaire and Hafler Trio, Waston set out on a lifelong journey recording in the field. “Weather Report” was his first compositional album in this style, and we get into every aspect of each track, from titles to location to possible sounds heard.
Following up last week’s episode, we wanted to discuss an album by an artist from “Japanese/American Noise Treaty,” and we landed on Contagious Orgasm “The Flow of Sound Without Parameter” on Ground Fault. It’s a Series II CD and is as strange as it is wonderful. We love Ground Fault and we love Contagious Orgasm, so you can guess how we feel about this one. Hydrate your thirsty teeth and head out on your mission.
Class is back in session for another mandatory noise history lesson as we had a great discussion about “The Japanese/American Noise Treaty” with the man who curated it, Mason Jones. Mason gives us all the background and history of putting this mammoth document together. We get into the order, how artists were chosen, why some aren’t on it, the design and layout, and so much more. It’s truly one of the most important noise compilations of all time, and was incredible to get the story from the man responsible.
Hydra is an absolute favorite project of Noisextra and we felt is was a fine time to explore “Power.” We dive into this classic tape on Bloodlust! from 1996 and are filled with every emotion throughout the discussion of this cassette. The world lost Greg Scott in 2003, but he forever lives on in this and all his releases. All you need is force.
