Tell - Tonal-Nagual




This is Joke Lanz on electronics and turntables with Christian Wolfarth dealing with percussion. As far as I am aware, this is all they recorded as "Tell" and I don't know whether they recorded together at all outside of this wonderful thing. The seven tracks come in at between four and twelve minutes long. So rather than the perhaps more typical burp blurt of the Schimp, this expands and grows in (ironically) a much more organic way.

It's absolutely triumphant and I can't recommend it highly enough to be honest.

CD released on Rossbin in 2009.

Také Rodriguez & His Exotic Arkestra - Pasión De Ritmo

Bootleg "reissue" of the 1999 techno-salsa-wtf album by the late Takehito Nakazato (aka Hado-Ho and Dub Sonic), first released on his own Sonic Plate label and unofficially resurrected as a CDR wrapped in newspaper trash by Dolor del Estamago.

Skin Chamber - Trial

Coming a couple of years after "Wound", 1993's "Trial" is more confident and less derivative than it's predecessor. Crushing, heavy, ultra-slow industrial metal with a 25-minute harsh noise blow-out at the end.

Inzekt - Elektrische Heilwärme




Peter Schmucki is one of the lesser known lights that orbited the black hole at the centre of the Schimpfluchian universe. He appears on the Mama (das fest) LP but doesn't seem to have recorded much else ... shame really.

LP released on Schimpfluch in 1991.

Skin Chamber - Wound

Skin Chamber were Controlled Bleeding's alter ego for ultra-slow industrial metal, probably influenced by Godflesh, Swans and Neurosis. When this album came out, I remember thinking it was a brazen cash-in on a style that seemed popular. All these years later, though, it holds up more than I expected it to. Released by Roadracer in 1991.

Dave Phillips - III+




There were a series of self-released dp tapes from the mid-90's that appear to have completely disappeared. This seems to be the only (adulterated) survivor thanks to this CDr released on Tochnit Aleph in 2001.

Anyway, I'll be one lucky fucker if I ever get the chance to post any more oop ... yer man has it pretty much covered.

Aphasia & Dachise - Split Disc

Just like it says on the tin, this is a split disc by two English noise artists: Richard Johnson is Aphasia and Paul Knowles was Dachise, though these days he's The Digitariat. Released in 1995 by the dependably high-quality US label, Realization Recordings.

The Eric Boros contribution is pretty inconsequential but the dp effort is typically great.

Dave Phillips / Maso Yamazaki / Rudolf Eb.er - Arschloch-Onna




One of the pillars of the Schimpfluch (dis)organization with Masonna and Rudolf / R&G. A selection of live and studio material from the three that is sliced, diced, blended and spat straight into your face.

CD released on Japan Overseas in 1997.

Robert Ashley - The Wolfman

The title track is Robert Ashley's legendary 1964 room-clearing piece for tape, voice and feedback and is necessary listening for anybody and everybody who would be reading this blog. Etch this wrecker onto your brains immediately. Fleshing out the disc is a 40-minute-long behemoth from 1960 called "The Bottleman" (made as the soundtrack to a film) plus a 1957 piece called "The Fox" which was Ashley's first electronic music. Compiled and released as a CD by Alga Marghen in 2003.

Runzelstirn Gurgelstock / Rudolf Eb.er - Bock Mist Bock




Appropriately perverse 7" where the grooves on Side A are etched into white paper. Side B gets the more traditional black vinyl approach.

Released on P-Tapes in 1996.

Musica Elettronica Viva ‎- The Sound Pool


A total of 16 people are credited as performing on this record, including the core group of Rzewski, Curran and Tietelbaum plus a bunch of other people whose names I don't recognize. Released by BYG in 1970, then reissued on CD by Spalax2 in 1998. Darn close to the Platonic ideal of era-appropriate free improvisation electro-hippie noise. Fans of Vibracathedral Orchestra and Sunburned Hand of the Man can trace that stinky family tree back to May 1969, when this was hatched.
