Chris Sienko wowed us with the unknown-to-us RRR Taste Test tape series. In the early 90s, RRR made sampler tapes of items in the RRR catalog. They look amazing. They sound amazing. They are amazing. The tapes send us into a discussion of our early noise explorations, including shows at the Fireside Bowl and the mystery of discovering noise in the 90s.
We were thrilled to have our guest Jay Howard of Circuit Wound bring his copy of Thirdorgan “Pessimistic Cyborg” to the Noisextra studio and proceed to shred our mechanical insides. The whole crew is left numb and dazed, but wanting more. We also dug up a very rare interview with Akihiro Shimizu and relay some of what he had to say. So ahead of the curve, there is no better time to dive head first into Thirdorgan.
We are joined by Chris Sienko of As Loud As Possible magazine to discuss the legendary Emil Beaulieau “Anti Performance” cassette from 1991. After having been mentioned on nearly every Noisextra episode, we finally devote an entire episode to the “greatest living noise artist.” Chris dug in extensively to which anti-record is being played when as well as the history behind each record. We also discuss visiting RRR, and all try our own versions of Beaulieau’s dance moves. Straighten your tie, sharpen your record needle, and destroy all music.

We are joined by Ryan Martin of Dais Records, Robert & Leopold & Copley Medal to discuss Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck’s “Asshole/Snail Dilemma.” Ryan is writing a book on R&G and the entire Schimpfluch Gruppe, so we couldn’t have had a better person to dig into this album. We cover the early days as well as the era that this CD is a part of. Pull up a plate of spaghetti and wash your brains with Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck.
The time has come for us to take on one of the greatest works of the 20th century, Con-Dom’s “The Eighth Pillar : A Confession Of Faith.” We dive deep, not only into the album and the work of Mike Dando, but also into the life of the man that inspired the album, T.E. Lawrence, as well as his monumental book “The Seven Pillars of Wisdom.” Let us walk in the way of insight.
Friend of the podcast G.X. Jupitter-Larsen is making a new movie called “Reference Desk” and has started a fundraiser to get it made. One of the perks is this brand new collaboration tape between GX and PAINJERK. Do you like the sounds of pumps, book pages and electronic stabs? Of course you do. Head over to igg.me/at/rdesk to support the movie and grab this cassette—the first cassette on Noiseoploy.
G.X. Jupitter-Larsen returns for a third time to discuss the work of Manon Anne Gillis, and specifically her album “Euragine.” He gives insight to her art and performances, as well as his collaboration with her. We are all thrilled to walk around in the sonic world that Anne Gillis creates. The
We’re back in Pure-land and back in Italy for Murder Corporation’s “New Crimes” CD. Culled from an insanely limited 8 tape box set, the CD represents a perfectly distilled version of a staggering piece of work. Moreno Daldosso, the man behind Murder Corporation, was kind enough to answers some questions that we sent him, and we relay his answers throughout the episode. Open the vents and let the death wind in.
David Reed of Envenomist joins is to discuss “Cold Summer” by Mick Harris’s void ambient project Lull. We go many places with this hauntingly staggering album, from the artificial jungle to the sanctum just out of reach. David also discusses some of his recent work, as well as his early days getting into noise. Find your isolation shelter and fall slowly into Lull.
