In our first journey to the Netherlands, we encounter the fantastic DMDN “Agonistes 1&2” cassette on G.R.O.S.S. and fall headfirst into its grinding swirl. Sjak Van Bussell, the man that is DMDN, gave us some incredible information behind this tape. He also filled us in on other aspects of his work, including his band THU20, his label Midas Music, and his time touring with Merzbow and the Haters in 1989. Celebrate noise.
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.
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.
