In Conversation with Dan Greenwood (Proof of the Shooting / Diagram: A)

With the release of the Proof of the Shooting box set out now on Self Abuse/Fusty Cunt, we thought it’d be a perfect time to have a conversation with Dan Greenwood, one half of Proof of the Shooting and the man behind the long running Diagram: A. Dan digs back into memories of special packaging assembly, discovering noise in the 90s, recording onto VHS tape and so much more.

Knurl – Nervescrap

The Pure series strikes again with Knurl “Nervescrap.” To-the-point noise from north of the border courtesy of this long running project. Get trashy, get junky, and tear metal to shreds. Will you make it across the border? Cranking this CD will certainly help.

TAC – If It Fits… (with guest Chris Sienko)

Chris Sienko, our most guested guest, returns and brings the deep knowledge on TAC “If it Fits” on Spite. While all being big fans of Spite, none of us were quite familiar with TAC, and Sienko rectifies that with a heap of thoughts and info on this fairly obscure project from the golden era. In addition, Chris breaks down some of his favorite Spite releases.

Noisextra Discuss The New Blockaders

Spit on works of art and stand against nothing at all as we discuss The New Blockaders. This week we present the audio of the first Noisextra video done for the Tusk Festival. We go into the early history of The New Blockaders and relay thoughts on TNB from Ron Lessard, GX Jupiter Larsen, Dominick Fernow, and Chris Sienko. Anti anti anti anti anti anti anti anti anti…

Einstürzende Neubauten – Halber Mensch

Break into the Nakamatsu Ironworks Ruins with Einsturzende Neubauten in the classic music film “Halber Mensch.” Neubauten has been a gateway band for innumerable noise artists and fans, with this legendary VHS being a huge touchstone. From a site specific performance to videos to live concert footage, “Halber Mensch” perfectly showcases the deconstructed world of Einsturzende Neubauten.

K2 “Anybody Can’t Catch Up With This”

Ten inches of rusted metal junks eclipse all light with K2 “Anybody Can’t Catch Up With This” on Ant Zen. The material on this record is based on the classic album “The Rust,” so we compare both releases and discuss why 10″s are such a great format for noise. Additionally, Tara teaches us about the actual mountain K2.

Maeror Tri – Language of Flames and Sound

As we’ve discussed many Drone Records 7″s on Seven Inch Sunday, we thought it’d be a good time to cover the label’s flagship band Maeror Tri and their “Language of Flames and Sound” CD on Old Europa Cafe. Your brain waves may wash ashore on new lands, but the unfamiliar surroundings will prove rewarding. Blur the hemispheres.

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.
