Pauline Oliveros & Reynols - Pauline Oliveros In The Arms Of Reynols


CD (re)released in 2000 on Creamgarden Records featuring Reynols reworking the live material of the American (s)avant composer Pauline Oliveros.

"This is a most curious release! A CD of remixes of Pauline Oliveros made by a band from Argentina named Reynols. Nowadays everybody gets a remix, so why not deep dronist Oliveros? The six pieces dwell to a great extent on the drone sounds of Oliveros. Beautiful, haunting drone music. Very nicely made remix/hommages." Frans de Waard

"This is a hard drift ambient psych-rock meisterwerk, all originating from massive solo accordion source tapes by Oliveros, reconstructed in Argentinian noise-rock circles." High Knee

Reynols - Jaz Ronco Japi Javas


Argentinian experimental band that began in 1993 as the Burt Reynols Ensemble. Apparently, the bandit wasn't too keen on that so they changed their name to Reynols in 1996 following legal action. Since then the work of the band has been based around improvisation, drones and deep experimental research, incorporating diverse acoustic & electric instruments, tapes and electronics. The group is led by Miguel Tomasín, an amazing musician who has Down´s Syndrome. The band´s forays into musical experimentation are guided by the immense freedom of Tomasín´s mind, giving a challenging and unique character to the project. The line-up is completed by Christian Dergarabedian, Robeto Conlazo & Anla Courtis. Anla has since gone on to make some sublime music in his own right.

These three cdrs were released during 2002 on Valuba Mafiforo.

Wasteland Jazz Unit is Jon Lorenz on saxophone and John Rich on clarinet and skronk out some great free noise consisting of blasting horn squeals and contact mic fuckery.

Pharaoh Overlord


Pharaoh Overlord are Janne Westerlund, Jussi Lehtisalo and Tomi Leppänen (who more regularly play in Circle) and describe themselves as "hypno-improv-stoner-rock". Whilst this is minimalist stoner, there is a slow-motion psychedelia burning inside. In a week and a bit I get to see Circle and Pharaoh Overlord...I'm so happy, I could wet myself.

Caroliner Rainbow Brain Tool Imbued With Rust And Mold - Wine Can't Do It, Wife Won't Do!


Where do you start?

Well...first off, the Caroliner name changes with each release and its members are, for all public intents and purposes, anonymous, using such nonsensical Beefheartian soubriquets as Obsidian Skeleton, The Sickwood Adventure, and Cottypearile Weddingforke. The aliases are only used during interviews with the band and no credits appear on any of the Caroliner recordings.

Does it sound like this?

"Caroliner is the sound of atrophy, the noise of salvation and damnation's collision in a parallel dimension to purgatory, the random rumbling of the bowels of the universe turned inside out to become a semblance of music complete with lyrical vantage points so convolutedly arcane to make comprehending them impossible, save for the few gnostically inclined aspirants bent in similar psychic permutations. That is to say that Caroliner put a U.S. pioneer spirit (circa Louisiana Purchase) into art-damaged hex-all tales incorporating fractured strains of bluegrass, John Cage, NYC guitar skronk bands, the kind of melody I find myself singing in the shower to annoy/perplex roommates and the chaos of the mind of a god confused by the subsequent confusion of its creation to create a musical universe complete and unique as fellow San Franciscans the Residents. Caroliner frightens the crap out of me, makes me gag on laughter and lulls me with sheets of hoarse tonality. Just don't ask me what the heck they mean by it all...".

I don't know!

I do know that they make Hans Grüsel's Krankenkabinet look like they never took drugs after all. I also know that they are really quite brilliant!

This is a double lp released on their own BullsHit label in 2003.

Ensemble Economique - Standing Still, Facing Forward


This LP was released in 2010 on Amish Records. Amish were completely unknown to me until this release but are obviousy putting out some quality material.

There is a review on Discogs which sums this one up very nicely: "Standing Still, Facing Forward – the Ensemble’s second release, part of Amish Records’ Required Wreckers outsider series – fuses found sounds, field recording and studio-created music and noise in the service of an imaginary Lynchian film – half dream, half nightmare, all suspense. It recalls (in ambience more than form) a more muscular version of the mid-1990s isolationism of Techno Animal, Labradford, Thomas Köner et al." Can't argue with that at all.

This is sold out at the label but you may still be able to grab this somewhere. I recommend that you do...after alll, mp3 can't compete with vinyl.

Robert Turman - Chapter Eleven




Robert Turman was a founder member of NON before concentrating on his own experimental/noise compositions. He appeared to have disappeared until a couple of years ago when he began to release material on Aaron Dilloway's Hanson Records.


This is an 8xC32 boxset comprising material recorded between 1976 and 1987. It was originally self-released in 1988 in very limited numbers. Luckily, it was re-released in 2010 on Hanson. Again, numbers were very limited and it sold out quickly.

Silence Of Vacuum




These are two C10s and a C40 released in 2007 on Institute Of Paraphilia Studies (which is a sub-label of Freak Animal Records, a Finnish experimental/noise label operated by Mikko Aspa). IOPS is based upon the concept of sound inspired by various perversions / paraphilia / sexual behaviour. It's only aim is the study, research, worship and creation of material for personal satisfaction and for likeminded persons. The label has no commercial aims and does not have it's own website or promote its own product.

I used to have no idea who was responsible for Silence Of Vacuum until Tzomborgha helped me out. It is (of course) Mikko Aspa, who also records as Alchemy Of The 20th Century, Clinic Of Torture, Grunt, and Nicole 12 amongst others.
