In Conversation with Dominick Fernow, part 2

In part two of our discussion with Dominick Fernow, we get into his first months in Providence, leading up to a pilgrimage to Lowell, MA on Halloween 1999. Before leaving for Providence, Dominick tells a story of attempting to book a show for a noise legend in Madison. Grab a walkman and some noise tapes and come along for some more invaluable noise history.

In Conversation with Dominick Fernow, part 1

In the first of two episodes, Dominick Fernow joins us to discuss the very beginnings of Prurient and Hospital Productions. We begin the journey in ’90s Wisconsin as he navigates the worlds of death metal and techno, which eventually leads to the noise underground. While the three of us have all known Dominick for nearly two decades, we all learned plenty of new and incredible information about his most distant past. Join us for some highly enlightening noise history.

Noisextra is assisting Hospital Productions to compile a live Prurient box set commemorating the 25th anniversary of the project. If any listeners have a live recording, video or radio show from the years 1997-2006, please email gang@noisextra.com and we will go from there.

PAINJERK – Mission Invisible: Kill the Poor

Surprise! We are back a day before the Hospital Fest with a very special bonus episode. Did you know there was an unreleased Painjerk album from the ’90s? Neither did we, but here it is! Easily the most exciting noise release of 2019, Painjerk’s “Mission Invisible : Kill the Poor” on Hospital Productions is here to scorch the earth and begin anew. Spoiler alert: we absolutely worship this album. In addition, Kohei Gomi sent us some great information on this unreleased masterpiece that we share throughout the episode. Curl up, huddle up and get ready to be overwhelmed by pure and perfect Painjerk sound experimentation.

Skin Crime – King of the Deathmatch

It’s finally here, our first Skin Crime episode, after mentioning the project nearly every episode prior. Barbed wire, thumbtacks and fire all play a vital role in this week’s episode as we not only discuss Skin Crime’s “King of the Deathmatch” cassette, but also dig into the actual King of the Death Match and related wrestling matches. We dive onto a bed of nails, choke slam each other into thousands of thumbtacks and ascend the ladder in the middle of the ring to achieve the highest honor of becoming King of the Deathmatch. Never stay down, always kick out.
