This might be a companion to the compilation tape that I posted yesterday, but I'm not sure. Maybe yesterday's tape is a companion to this? The covers look very similar, the titles are similar, they came out on the same label (Opus Dei Society) at around the same time and features a few of the same artists. I'm afraid I don't have any information other than the tape itself, which is worth hearing. This compilation from 1985 features noises by Arvid Tuba, Mario Marzidovsek, Vidna Obmana, Clinique Lutetia, A Violated Body, Victor/im, Aversion Sonore, and Mente Oxidada.

Before there was Klanggalerie, there was Syntactic, an Austrian label that specialized in extremely limited (but generally high quality) 7" vinyl releases. Most are valuable collectors' items today, such as the records by Organum, CCCC, Main, Muslimgauze, Merzbow, and so on. This little record was produced in 1996 in that most inconvenient format, the compilation 7". That means very short songs by a lot of people, in this case shorter songs by more people than you might want on such a short little record: Thirdorgan, Sons of Silence, Fennesz, Christoph Kurzmann, Werner Mobius, Legion, Aube, King Lear's Convulsions (who?), Aube, The Haters, Scanner, and Makoto Takashima. Edition of just 100 copies. Pay a fortune to ruthless collector mercinaries, or just listen to it here.

va - Breaking The Plastic Hymen, Vinyl Virgins & Lo-Fi Whores

Happy Friday! Here is an excellent collection of strange noise, low-fidelity songlike things and other beauties, released as two double-7" sets )and later as a box with all four 7"s in it) by Fisheye Records in 1997. I think it was supposed to be a compilation by people who hadn't yet had anything out on vinyl, but the concept may have been out of date by the time the records came out. Not that it matters. Music by The Shadow Ring, Wingtip Sloat, Rake, Hood, Prick Decay, Glands of External Secretion, Tea Culture, Noggin, The Negative Kite, Richard Youngs, Simon Wickham-Smith, and other names that I'm too tired to type right now. If any of the names I just listed caused a twinge of excitement in your brainstem, then you already know this was made for you. Enjoy your weekend.

John Wiese & C. Spencer Yeh - Tiny Red Tables / Big American Hole






It was only when preparing these Yeh posts that I realised that he had put some of his work up for streaming on UBU. So I'll leave the description to the man himself:

"Originally released on Helicopter as a 25+ minute long mono 7" single in an edition of 150. John Wiese and I were both a part of this "Free Noise UK" tour at the time which included a variety of "free jazz" and "noise" musicians. Both John and I had these matching handheld tape recorders, and so at any/all times, we'd collect various field recordings, soundchecks, vocal utterances, just total garbage, and every evening these pieces would find their way into the performances as source material. This 7" is a recording of Wiese playing back the accumulated recordings on the original handheld recorders. Titles were provided by saxophonist Evan Parker, one of the players in the "Free Noise UK" ensemble."

7" released on Helicopter in 2007.
