Various - Ritual Dos Sadicos II




Well. Having thrown myself willingly into a maelstrom of football (no, it's not called soccer) induced alcoholic hallucinosis and generalised unbearable smugness, the former has now resolved to the point where I feel obliged to return to what I laughingly refer to as bizness.

So for your delectation or disgust, here's a great compilation of subterranean noise, strangled beats and weird tribal infused convolutions that appear designed to turn your head inside out ... Nox, Vox Populi!, Pacific 231, Atrophisme Interne Z, Denier Du Culte et cetera and so forth ...

LP released on VP 231 in 1985.

va - ND 7

Oldsters like me will remember ND as one of the only sources for information about the noise underground in the days before the internet. Based in Texas (as you can tell from the cover of "N D 7"), ND was a magazine and label affiliated with a record shop in Austin. At the start, they made split cassettes that came inside little magazines. Then, they made magazines full of interviews and loads of contact information so that you could write away for catalogs and tapes. Eventually, they made CDs. "N D 7" was the seventh issue of ND, and it's a compilation cassette. A who's who of who-the-hell-are-these-people. Some names you'll recognize: Minoy, Die Form, Big City Orchestra, X-Ray Pop, The Haters, If Bwana, The Joke Project, Odal, Ideas Beyond Filth. Others are just as obscure in 2019 as they were in 1992: Booed Usic (actually tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE from balTimOre), Vittore Baroni (of Trax), K.U.Sch, Theater of Ice, and others.

Everyone's favorite format is the compilation 7". This one, released by GX Jupitter-Larsen in 1996 as the first release on his short-lived Noisopoly label, includes short tracks by The Haters (aka GX himself), Chop Shop, Smell & Quim and Con-Dom (misprinted as Com-, perhaps indicating his real agenda: Comedy-Domination).

Pacific 231 - The Lost Judgement




The first half hangs in the air like the promise of vengeance whilst the second flips the coin and gives pulsing noise, washed out guitar distortion and reverbed synth pulse ... or something.

Pacific 231 - Power Assume




Splendidly warped industrial skronk noise courtesy of Pierre Jolivet.

LP released on Bunker Records in 1986. It appears that there is a CDr reissue on Ladd-Frith from 2002 that is different enough to qualify as a completely different release ... never heard it, can anyone help out?
