"They first met in 1989 as young recruits in the Swiss Guard in Vatican City. After many years of serving and protecting the The Holy Father they got a bit bored and discovered their mutual fascination for loud music and heavy leather. CBIHL was born! Enigmatically, CBIHL professed to have cruised the realms of central Europe 'to convert all the lost souls down the valley deep and up the mountain high'. The rest is history! Hallelujah!"
Right On Sister!

This is AM687 and we are in the calmer waters of December 2007.
There is apparently a volume 6 and a volume 7 (AM561 and AM562) but I've never even seen them. Which makes me sad...

This time we have AM482 and it's 2006 again?!
Posted by badgerstump at 18:32

Posted by badgerstump at 18:18

Have you have ever wondered what the "Dedicated To BLOD" appendage at the end of some of the Sewer Election releases was all about? Thought not. Never mind.
Blod were Jesper Forselius and Ulph Svenson. Cult Swedish Harsh Noise.
Luckily, in 2004, Denshi Zatsuon released a boxset containing three of their very early cdrs which were originally released in 1998 in severly restricted numbers. Denshi Zatsuon was a label run by Koji Tano (a.k.a. MSBR) so you should know where this is heading.....
1 - Starbright
2 - Country Girl Perversion
3 - Pleasurable Figures In Filth

In 1998 NNCK rather perversely released (what is in effect) a double LP as two single LPs.
I've "borrowed" this explanation of the band from the marvellously detailed My Record Collection site as he has done my work for me:
"The No Neck Blues Band, or NNCK, are, according to me, the most representative band of what Wire Magazine has dubbed "New Weird America" (I really hate that term, it's become so all-encompassing that almost anything with a weird vibe has been engulfed in this "category"). This "new weird" sound has it's roots in free jazz and experimental music, nothing was impossible and all was permitted. From one album to the other, you could never be quite sure what you would get except you know it's going to sound quite primitive/tribal; with or without electronics.
The group started out in the mid-nineties and was a part of the whole loft scene, performing often on city rooftops or in lofts or their own "Hint House" These shows were apparently quite wild (even if the members would just stand, unmoving on stage, the music in itself would be sufficient to make for a crazy show) and little by little, cryptic releases made their way on the market, all of them often in very limited quantities. The earlier releases were quite loud group improvisations bordering on noise (no "blues band" were they!), the sound slowly matured into out-there territory, opting for primitive psychedelic soundscapes and/or drone music including often unidentifiable sounds; some of these releases sound a lot like the more fucked up albums by Sun Ra.
Their creative output tends to shift between their noisier side and their more psychedelic side from release to release with fluctuating quality and availability. They often disappear off the face of the Earth only to reappear a few months later with a slew of new albums and singles. Although there are a few identified members of the group (and their side-projects), the group has, since their conception, tried to keep themselves as anonymous as possible."

Request from the shoutbox:
"The word "Klangkrieg" defines an Utopian terminal state of urban noise. The group is interested in filtering and processing this noise in order to put it into a musical structure that is dynamic, vivid and suspenseful. Artificial and natural sounds are edited in harsh cut-ups or fine transitions, both showing violence and sensibility next to each other."
"This CD contains 6 pieces that Klangkrieg have composed in between 1993 and 1995, among them "38 cbm", an audio art piece for a freight container installation commissioned by the ZKM (centre for art and media technology Karlsruhe, Germany). Two other tracks, "Korpus 1" and "Tokkata" have been composed in a style reminding of the early tape compositions of the 50´s and 60´s: complex structures collaged with samples and sequences."
