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.
We are celebrating Masonna’s birthday with a bonus episode on the man from whom we took our podcast name. We shred our ears with the “Astro Harshtronism” 8” on Anti Music. Which color vinyl does Greh have? What is a quark? Are the Connellys ever seen without one another? The answers to all these things and more are contained within. Happy Birthday, Masonna! Thank you for all the noise.
This week we pay tribute to one of the all time noise greats: Shohei Iwasaki aka Monde Bruits. We get stung all over with his debut cassette “Portuguese Man of War” on Vanilla Records. We explore his world of noise, his influences and his legacy. Join us as we get lost in the Japanese noise forest with a true legend.
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.
The Connellys check in as their tour winds down. Topics include: the surreal vortex of Lakehead, California, two bartenders named Nancy, and what they’ve been listening to since Laramie.
This week’s episode is something a little different, the first installment of TRASHWARE. The Connellys quizzed Crank Sturgeon and Greh Holger about making gear, getting into it, and we even came up with some fun future episode/video ideas!
The Connellys are on tour, but got themselves stuck in a snowstorm so recorded us a little bonus road listening discussion while holed up in a Super 8.
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.
It’s October and time to stray a bit off the noise path onto a road filled with fog, fire and obscured ambient sounds with Aghast’s Hexerei im Zwielicht der Finsternis, a perfect soundtrack for autumn’s chill. We wander in the forest of tape hiss, off kilter timpani and dances of death. In addition, we discuss some recent horror movie viewing, as well as some favorite horror movie series. Turn out the lights, light a candle, and descend into the ancient ambiance of Aghast.
