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.
G.X. Jupitter-Larsen returns for a third time to discuss the work of Manon Anne Gillis, and specifically her album “Euragine.” He gives insight to her art and performances, as well as his collaboration with her. We are all thrilled to walk around in the sonic world that Anne Gillis creates. The
We’re back in Pure-land and back in Italy for Murder Corporation’s “New Crimes” CD. Culled from an insanely limited 8 tape box set, the CD represents a perfectly distilled version of a staggering piece of work. Moreno Daldosso, the man behind Murder Corporation, was kind enough to answers some questions that we sent him, and we relay his answers throughout the episode. Open the vents and let the death wind in.
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.
Surprise! We are back a day before the Hospital Fest with a very special bonus episode. Did you know there was an unreleased Painjerk album from the ’90s? Neither did we, but here it is! Easily the most exciting noise release of 2019, Painjerk’s “Mission Invisible : Kill the Poor” on Hospital Productions is here to scorch the earth and begin anew. Spoiler alert: we absolutely worship this album. In addition, Kohei Gomi sent us some great information on this unreleased masterpiece that we share throughout the episode. Curl up, huddle up and get ready to be overwhelmed by pure and perfect Painjerk sound experimentation.
Skies are blackening as we sit down to discuss Daniel Menche’s “Field of Skin.” Sandstorms, pools of mercury and 1800s apocalypse scenes all cross our path while we wander through the field of skin. Head on into the grain silo with us and this magnificent album.
Time for another album in the Pure series, and this one is thick and heavy. Deathpile’s “Ne Plus Ultra” sends us inside ourselves as we explore the heart and blood of this monumental CD. Longtime favorite of all three of the crew, Deathpile delivers the goods with this unique and stand out record. We talked to Jonathan Canady and relay what he had to say about this album as well as the beginnings of Deathpile.
This week we dive into the world of rhythmic noise with Orphx’s 1996 album “Fragmentation” on Malignant Records. The crew is completely blown away by Christina and Rich’s sound mastery, attention to detail and song title prowess. Dream imagery, cellular consciousness and brain biology are discuss through the lens of this ripper of a CD.
It’s our Halloween episode and we thought there was no one more appropriate to cover than Atrax Morgue. We listen to and discuss his “Paranoia” CD on Old Europa Cafe. We cover death, obsession and the darkness that Marco Corbelli infused into every moment of his recordings. In lieu of recent listening, we talk about some of our favorite Italian Giallo movies, a genre that was highly influential for Atrax Morgue. Slip on some black gloves and sharpen your knife’s blade.
As October rolls on, we dive into the black leather night dungeon with Master/Slave Relationship’s “This Lubricious Love” on RRR from 1987, chosen by our guest Jim Haynes. Things get unhygienic as we discuss Debbie Jaffe’s intense personal vision, both lyrically and musically. In addition, we have a thick recent listening segment as well as mentions of “Blue Velvet,” infrasound performance, mix tapes and Nitro. Dig your heels in.
