Class is in session for another noise history lesson. For our first episode on a film, we sat down with Crank Sturgeon to watch and discuss Voice Crack’s “Kick That Habit” film, directed by Peter Lietchi. Our talk jumps back and forth from the film to the early days of Crank’s involvement in noise. Topics include his introduction to, and working with, Ron Lessard, travels to the UK and playing with Smell & Quim, and the importance of ’90s noise VHS.
It’s our first foray into RRR’s Pure series as we head over to France for Zone Nord’s “Roferon A” album. We get down in the dirt with this obscure project, discuss early experiences calling RRRecords, and Tara espouses some noise show wisdom.
