In Conversation with Chris Sienko (As Loud As Possible)

We are joined again by Chris Sienko to discuss his time in the trenches as one of the people behind As Loud As Possible magazine. Chris details how the issue came together, why there were no more issues, and stories of articles and interviews he was a part of, both published and unpublished. A fascinating look at what it takes to put together a magazine of this size and scope.

Bacillus – Epidemic

We go into the world of microbiology and old school noise with Bacillus’s “Epidemic” cassette from 1995 on his own Clotted Meat Portioning label. Viruses, pandemics, diseases and short bursts of pure noise all rear their head in our discussion. We also spoke with Peter Keller of Bacillus through the safety of technology. True ’90s American noise.

Trashware 02: Circuit Wound

For the second entry in our Trashware series Jay Howard of Circuit Wound joins us to discuss noise gear. Jay came from a death metal background and began his noise creation already armed with essential weapons without even realizing it. We get into studio set ups, preferred pedals, sound sources and more. Get out your pen and paper and take notes on this noise gear class.

In Conversation with Andy Bolus

We couldn’t have been more excited to sit down with Andy Bolus aka Evil Moisture. Andy has been going strong since 1990 and we cover a lot about his early days and early releases. We also touch on what dreams are to us, as well as Greh’s fantastic cocktails. Another noise history lesson is in session.

In Conversation with Seymour Glass (Bananafish)

We are starting 2020 with a very special interview with Seymour Glass of Bananafish Magazine. We discuss the history of Bananafish and Seymour’s time in the noise trenches. He gives us anecdotes of interviews, people he worked with, and the process of putting an issue together. Another noise history lesson is in session. Tardiness will not be excused.

In Conversation with Moonbeam Terror

Our second interview from the Hospital Fest weekend is with Jilla of Moonbeam Terror and Autoerotichrist. The discussion goes deep when talking about her music and art and pivots to hilarity when talking about beans and Wisconsin. Her album “Comfort Knife” was one of our favorites of the year and her set at Hospital Fest was visceral magic. Put on your chain mail and watch out for sharp corners.
