With the return of the Self Abuse Murder Series, we wanted to put up one of our Patreon episodes on the original Murder Series over here on the regular feed. March to 1980s Soviet Russia with this month’s Case History as Skin Crime tackles the werewolf-like existence of Andrei Chikatilo on the “Monster” 7″. We get into the life of the Butcher of Rostov and how perfectly the noise relates to his murders. Stay away from train stations and woods, but keep this 7″ close. You never know who you will run into.
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.
This week Greh and Mike sit down with Pat O’Neil and Mark Jameson, aka SKIN CRIME. We listened to the legendary compilation CD “Music Should Hurt” on Pat’s own Self Abuse label. We cover many classic ’90s noise bands from all over the globe, what it was like to put together a comp in the pre-internet age, running a noise label in the 90s, and a ton more. This won’t hurt one little bit.
