Various - Hated Perversions




Filthy noise and perverted power electronics courtesy of Nicole 12, Sick Seed, Bizarre Uproar, Eleczema, Grunt, Taint, Dorchester Library and Control.

This came with a 28 page booklet cataloguing some of the most extreme sexual fascinations to appear in a "noise" release. It even got it banned from sale on discogs ... probably to avoid them being prosecuted for distributing obscene publications. The booklet isn't included (which may be good or bad news) but if somebody wants to hook people up in the comments ...

Unsurprisingly, this was released (in 2008) on Freak Animal Records as part of their Institute Of Paraphilia Studies series.

Shinro Ohtake - Zen-Kei Retrospective 1955-2006, 大竹伸朗 - 全景




Shinro Ohtake (of Juke/19 and Puzzle Punks) is also, as if you didn't know, an extraordinary artist in his own right. The title of the post is the name of the book published following his retrospective exhibition held at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, in 2006. A massive 1152 pages documenting his life and works (and no, this isn't a scan of the book ... that would be ridiculous).

To be honest, I didn't even know that it existed . Until Caitlyn / CPI commented in one of the Puzzle Punk posts that is. Luckily she bought the book and ripped the two CDs that came with it ... and then gave them to us as flac copies. It even comes with photographs. A truly wonderful thing to do!

This also feels like an appropriate time to re-up the Juke/19 boxset that Mrs Inside posted four years ago almost to the day ... just in case you missed it.

All Hail Caitlyn / CPI!

Club Moral - Mit Neuen Waffen

Trash Ritual was a very interesting label while it lasted. Not only did they secure top-notch noise by some of the best of the 00s underground, they also reissued key albums that strongly influenced the label's aesthetic. This one, which TR produced as a CD in 2010, polishes off an obscure Belgian industrial cassette from 1982 and gives this nasty, brutish document a deserved spotlight. Club Moral are a band, a label, and a venue for experimental music and noise in Antwerp. They began in the early 1980s and are still active in sound, performance and visual art today! They even received a deluxe Vinyl-On-Demand boxset treatment in 2011, though Trash Ritual was there first.

Edward Allan Clarke




Today it was announced that Fast Eddie died yesterday ... and now all three are gone!

The worst thing about getting old is that your childhood heroes die. Nobody told me it would be like this when I came along for the ride. Frankly, it shouldn't be allowed.

As a very young child, I saw them at the Manchester Apollo on the Ace Of Spades tour. Right down at the front of the stage ... off my tits on cider and mushrooms ... and walked out temporarily deaf.

Stone cold genius and now stone dead forever.

Climax Denial - Fragile Grace

Climax Denial presents a powerful set of anguished, sex-obsessed "emo" power electronics, released in 2005 by Trash Ritual in an edition of only 50 copies. More than 50 people need to hear this. If you like it (and you will), you'll be glad to know that Mr. Denial is still producing albums and they're all worth seeking out. The newest one I'm aware of was an LP on Fusty Cunt. Go get it!

Ba.Ku & BT.HN - Ritual Totemic Stone

This tape came out in two editions, each credited to a different "band". The first edition from 2005 was attributed to Ba.Ku (aka Sam MacKinlay of The Rita). The next edition, released a year later, had a different cover and was credited to BT.NH instead. I have no information about why this happened or what it means. In either case, the sound contained herein is a blackened harsh wall of raw Canadian fury. Both versions were released by Trash Ritual. Perhaps you're noticing a pattern.

Audio Sports - 3∙6∙9




Bullfrog 1000 BPM (Nobukazu Takemura), Love Unlimited On-D (Aki Onda) and Odd Bodysuit E.Y.E. (Yamatsuka Eye) on the inaugural Audio Sports outing that is totally different than the other releases. Probably more of a smile a mile wide Beasties vibe going on. This is more fun than any of us have the right to expect out of life!

Rovo - Imago

An early EP by Seiichi Yamamoto's tribal space-rock band, and one of the few released outside of Japan. This one came out in 1999 on Incidental Music in the US and on the Sony-affiliated label Dohb Discs in Japan. This includes the 3" CD that came with it's initial Japanese release. I'm a big fan of the cover art.

The core group was Yamatsuka Eye, Aki Onda, Nobukazu Takemura and Toshiyuki Mori. However, there were always a wealth of people in the supporting cast. This includes Tsuneo Imahori (guitarist with Tipographica) and Otomo Yoshihide. It starts with a synth that sounds like Luke Slater covering the soundtrack to Escape To New York before (d)evolving into twisted hip-hop beats
