In Conversation with Blister Pack

The mountain men of Blister Pack join us today for a great talk on ’90s noise, true crime, video stores, and so much more. Emerson Murray and Nik Weisend were not only Blister Pack, but ran the Plague in Perspective label that focused on special packing. They both have solo projects — Nik as Hive and Emerson under his own name — and both have continued on different paths of art, from visual to the written word.

In Conversation with Christoph Heemann

Having recently discussed his collaboration CD with Merzbow, we thought it’d be a great time to have a conversation with Christoph Heemann. One of the main culprits behind H.N.A.S, Ultra, Mirror and so much more, Christoph provided some incredible insight and an equally incredible laugh. This is a great historical episode that looks at the underground from the ’80s and beyond.

For the extra segment on the Patreon, Christoph talks about working with David Tibet and being a part of Current 93’s “Soft Black Stars.”

In Conversation with Anthony Di Franco

Sometimes interviews slip through the cracks. Anthony DiFranco (Ramleh, JFK, Skullflower, more) joined us in the distant past and today our talk has be found and is transmitting to the world. With the recent JFK release on L.I.E.S, we were excited to unearth this conversation going over Di Franco’s history from discovering industrial and PE to working with Ramleh to his solo work and so much more.

In Conversation with Hunting Lodge

Lon and Skott of legendary American industrial band Hunting Lodge join us for an in-depth discussion covering their entire output. 2022 marks the 40th anniversary of Hunting Lodge, and with multiple reissues of theirs rare release in the past handful of years, there’s no time like now to hear the history direct from the source. It’s a great talk with some true midwest DIY industrial stalwarts.

For the ExtraNoisextra segment on the patreon, Lon and Skott have fun talking about their least favorite shows among other things.

On Location at LUFF 2022

Greh spoke with perpetual LUFF attendee and former performer Dave Phillips, curator Francisco Meirino (aka Phroq), co-founder Thibault Walter, and performer Mark Vernon about the festival itself and some performances.

Contact Microphones with Crank Sturgeon

The original Trashware guest is back in the hot seat. Crank Sturgeon proposed a discussion on contact microphones, so in this episode we go over what a contact mic is, general applications, how to record and affix the mics and amplifying slightly more traditional instruments, why the contact microphone is the perfect noise instrument, contact mics vs other microphones, in the studio and in the field, using with synthesizers and modular, troubleshooting contact mic issues, and plenty of Cranky anecdotes!

In Conversation with JG Thirlwell

JG Thirlwell was cool enough to to sit down with us for a deep look into his world of sound. Thirlwell has worked with everyone form Steven Stapleton and Coil to scoring “The Venture Brothers” and “Archer” television shows, not to mention his own hefty discography as Foetus, Steroid Maximus, Xordox and so much more. It was incredible to hear stories from his entire history as well as what’s being planned for the future. Prepare to enter Pigdom Come.

In Conversation with Zoe DeWitt (Zero Kama, Korpses Katatonik, Nekrophile Rekords)

Zoe DeWitt is a bona fide legend of industrial culture and ritual underground. We were thrilled for Zoe to sit down with us to discuss the entire history of Nekrofile Records and her projects Korpses Katatonik and Zero Kama. We get into many aspects of her work, from musical output to fashioning instruments out of human bones to her work within the occult and much more.
