There have been some requests to post this and the split with Berlinerluft or the Thule Apocalypse reissue that came from that tape. Of the three, I only like this one.

va - Autoficial

Everyone's favorite format is the compilation 7". This one, released by GX Jupitter-Larsen in 1996 as the first release on his short-lived Noisopoly label, includes short tracks by The Haters (aka GX himself), Chop Shop, Smell & Quim and Con-Dom (misprinted as Com-, perhaps indicating his real agenda: Comedy-Domination).

Pacific 231 - The Lost Judgement




The first half hangs in the air like the promise of vengeance whilst the second flips the coin and gives pulsing noise, washed out guitar distortion and reverbed synth pulse ... or something.

C48 released on Le Syndicat in 1985.

Pacific 231 - Power Assume




Splendidly warped industrial skronk noise courtesy of Pierre Jolivet.

LP released on Bunker Records in 1986. It appears that there is a CDr reissue on Ladd-Frith from 2002 that is different enough to qualify as a completely different release ... never heard it, can anyone help out?

Pierre Bouchet - Sale Timbale




This is still Philippe Blanchard ... he constantly expands my blown mind. To have all of these pieces of the jigsaw and combine them to create such art? Makes me bow down in admiration and laugh out loud ... sometimes it happens at the same time ... bit awkward to explain when my cats walk in unexpectedly. Mind you, my cats think I'm fucking weird.

CD released on Éditions Suicide Commercial in 1998.
