Glorious monolithic analog synth noise by Jeff Plummer, aka Immaculate:Grotesque. This cassette was released on Plummer's own Truculent Recordings label in 2007 in an edition of just 9 copies.
I've never thought of myself a mathematical genius but I may have to reconsider that. Here's an equation for you:
Dave Witte (give the funky drummer some), Paul Richard (aka Speedranch) and James Plotkin (yeah right, you've never heard of him...) + noiserock, glitch, plunderphonic, prog, space, techno, noise, bass, twisted shouty business + a shitload of fun fun fun = ... ?
No. The answer isn't 42. It's Atomsmasher.
CD on Double H Noise Industries from 2001 that is made for a Saturday night out!

This is more "traditional" than the posts that sit either side of this one. Obviously, all things are utterly relative. There are major parts of this that give me the same feeling as watching The Jesus Lizard live! That isn't a throw away comment ... I adore The Jesus Lizard!

7" released on Double H Noise Industries in 2003.
Phantomsmasher is the same line-up as Atomsmasher. And, you get Aaron Funk's Venetian Snares ...what else could you want?

Mike Connolly on a C60 released on Hung Like A Horse?! in 2004. Eventually Mike begins to appear more frequently than Aaron and eventually join up on a full term basis for quite a few years after this. Mike literally smashes it and signals a change in the Wolf Eyes sound that was to come!
Fuck Wolf Eyes
And, of course: Fuck You!

CDr released on Wabana Ore Limited in 2004. This has completely different music than the Bad Glue LP that came out two years earlier. Pete must have done a bad thing!

LP released on Important Records in 2005 with an etched B-Side that you can still play.
"Flip it over for a needle-destroying playable b-side etching hand carved by Wolf Eyes into the original laquers. Grooves cut in their own home lathe. Play at your own risk". Don't worry, we have done that for you! Any contributions to smashed needles will be gratefully appreciated.

There is no label information on this CDr so let's assume that it was self-released. It's from 2004.

Norbert Möslang & Andy Guhl - Sound_Shifting
Short but dense album of plunderphonic collage from obscure French weirdo Alexis Maibert, an artist sometimes known as Tapetronic, who also makes electronic music for radio and builds instrument-like things out of cassette tapes and magnets.

Here's another Kiwi conundrum. The original China Slope was a 12" lathe cut LP released on Stefan Neville's (I think) Stabbies And The Rocket Recordings in 1998. This contains an additional track "Wet Pack Myth" which I don't think appears anywhere else. The Small Blue Torch contribution is a bit of a mystery but the the recordings are from November 1996 ... is this another otherwise lost New Zealand lathe?
This is a C90 released on Campbell's Celebrate Psi Phenomenon. Is it 1999?
The Bleak Bliss archeology only takes us this far ...

Helpful info from the label's archived webpage (thanks to a Bleak Bliss reader for bringing this to our attention!):
"I contacted Campbell Kneale in 1998 after his release on Drunken Fish, hoping he'd have a little something for the dog. Shortly afterwards, we threw together the idea of a two disc Small Blue Torch release as a definitive document from this now deceased band. Compiling Full Fathom Five and Stockpile, Small Blue Torch is a landmark album in many ways, not least of which being SBT's first album available to Americans! At slightly over two hours of mesmerizing guitar drift, sputter and grind, Small Blue Torch is one of the most intensive and affordable (our price: $12) studies into the New Zealand soundscape, and your best introduction to Campbell Kneale's amazingCelebrate Psi Phenomena label. Those interested in this release will also wish to take note of Kneale's Ohm release." --Chris Moon, LVD
