Incapacitants / Macronympha - I Hate Derivatives / Wet Panty Contest




Stellar (sorry) 7" released on Mother Savage Noise Productions way back in 1995.

They also had a split C60 released on Bizarre Audio Arts last year that appears to still be for sale? What's wrong with people these days?

Government Alpha - 記憶の解像度 Resolution Of Remembrance 1992-1999




Now and again, the Brazilian anarchoharshnoisehead Jhones Silva emails in. Recently, he asked for a re-post of this box set. It's been so long that I had shamefully forgotten that the original link had been dead for nearly ten years. So ...

This is the exemplary representation of Yoshida Yasutoshi's Government Alpha mission.

If that wasn't enough, this four CD box set was released on Lasse Marhaug's Pica Disk in 2009. Clearly Lasse is a stone cold Norwegian legend but oh my lord does the man concentrate when he releases a box set. I buy them so I know. This is a flac rip and frankly it deserves to be shared in lossless.

p.s. Lasse, I know that you are thinking about it but are you going to reprint those Reynols T-Shirts or what? I need to be suitably dressed!

Simon Wickham-Smith - Murrinh Kulerrkkurrk




Imagine Rovo raving within sight of Uluru. Insistent and persistent and capable of driving a person crazy in a bad way or a good way or both.

Double CDr released on Rhizome in 2004.

Android Sisters - The Best of the Android Sisters

... and now for something completely different! The Android Sisters were absolutely a product of the early 1980s, when computers were scary and sinister and a JG Ballard dystopian future and/or nuclear war seemed right around the corner. American composer Tim Clark was the human brain behind these mechanical siblings, delivering a cold version of "futuristic" (now charmingly anachronistic) robot pop that came out as an LP on Vanguard in 1984. The Japanese label EM Records reissued it on CD and added some bonus tracks in 2004.

Simon Wickham-Smith and Richard Youngs - Asthma and Diabetes




Two people using a whole host of instruments, objects and recorded sound to create the best aural screenplay you've ever seen ... erm, heard.

LP released on Majora in 1993 with artwork that surely doffs the cap to The Gordons' extremely fine first album.

Julian Bradley - Heel Intercom

2003 was a busy year for our hero. Another CDR of solo yawn, this time released by those heroes at Chocolate Monk in a small edition that probably more than met "demand". Oh, and it's great.

Simon Wickham-Smith & Richard Youngs - Ceaucescu




Sitting somewhere between working class children in a school "choir" and cavernous orchestral feedback, I'm positive that Nicolae and Elena would have thoroughly disapproved of this opus but that just makes it better for those making the clumsy association.

LP released on Forced Exposure in 1992.

Simon Wickham-Smith & Richard Youngs - Knish




Over here nish means nothing (as in "chatted her up all night and I got nish" ... less sexist translations were available but at least I am obliquely aware of that). Maybe I should have always been mentally spelling it with a silent K. Richard's guitar and Simon's piano seem completely disconnected ... and then one or both sweep towards the other and the (black) whole is revealed.

LP released on Ignivomous in 1996.

Julian Bradley - A Companion as Glamorous as Sleeping on Wheels

Not only did Bradley adopt the hilariously cumbersome moniker A Companion as Glamorous as Sleeping on Wheels to use in place of (and/or in addition to?) his own name, he also released this album under his own name, with ACAGASOW as it's title. Lots of shorter pieces here, recorded between 1997 and 2000, released as a CD by the Belgian label Veglia.

Julian Bradley - Ditch Us In the Doorway

Bradley's 2003 CDR on the Belgian label Audiobot, released in an oversized package just to make sure that the discs get nice and scuffed up as quickly as possible. Sigh...

String manipulation, reversed loops and locating a tortured orchestra in a cave using echo location before flying off on a broken Wurlitzer organ to lament at leisure.
