Sickness – I Have Become the Disease That Made Me

Everyone is breaking their own rules as we dissect Sickness’ “I Have Become the Disease That Made Me” (2002). We are honored that Chris Goudreau, the man behind the project, agreed to break his own rule and lend his personal perspective to this episode. We are doubly pleased that Erik Hoffman, of Ground Fault Recordings, also agreed to share some of his memories regarding the history of this seminal work. Join us, as we piece together an audio documentary exploring the precision, nuance, and excitation of this classic noise album.

‘Tis the season to hang the mistletoe, pour the eggnog and break out Smell & Quim’s “The Christmas Album” cassette.

This Christmas, march to the Quim Republic with Noisextra.

Year End Wrap-Up

2020 comes to a close, therefore it is time to discuss our favorite noise of the year. We each brought 5 releases to talk about, but of course that’s not enough for us noise maniacs, so we end up going into much more. Our deepest, noisiest THANK YOU to all of our listeners this year…we have only just begun.

In Conversation with Randy Yau

Randy Yau joins us for a discussion on his work, both sonic and visual, and we couldn’t have been more honored. His live sets are stuff of legend, and he gets into preparing for a set as well as his recording process (hint: bathrooms are involved). For this important noise history lesson, we will provide the paper, but you need to bring your own celery.
