The C&B - 1991 Pre-Shadow Ring Recordings


Darren Harris and Graham Lambkin's pre-Shadow Ring band, four songs recorded in 1991 and released in 2010 as a 7" on Siltbreeze. There was, apparently, a cassette released under this band name as well, though it remains unheard by me.

Discom - Smuglo

Luckily for the human race, RDJ has a lot to answer for ... and all is well in the world.

CD on Deco from 2000.

rhubarb smugglers


Discom - Automoto

Discom was Erik Minkkinen and Lionel Fernandez. The latter was also in Sister Iodine and half of a melevolently damp bubble party that ended in tears. So, what's all this about then? A psychonaut's partial memory of a life presumably well lived, that's what.

CD released on Deco in 2003.

here in my car i feel nothing at all


Intertecsupabrainbeatzroomboyz - 69 Luftgitarren

Andy Bolus and Erik Minkkinen (Sister Iodine, Discom, etc) with a short CD of mad shit as I believe da yoot refer to it.

Released on Nneon in 2004.

69 Luftballons


John Oswald - Plexure


Plunderphonics might be the John Oswald album you know, but Plexure is far-and-away his masterpiece. It may be just 20 minutes long, but this densely-packed information-heavy collage of mainstream pop requires several listens before you truly hear what Oswald has done. Live with this one for awhile. It's worth putting in some work to get at the gold.

Evil Moisture - Bone Mics Give You More! Vol.1

"4 x C30 in vinyl box, first edition limited to 25 copies. First in a series of unreleased and remastered (as in repaired and often re-spliced) material taken from the very glued up reel to reel master tapes from old Evil Moisture releases which were edited with razor blade and splicing tape (or Halloween parcel tape in some cases). Often the tapes were bought second hand and had for example Dire Straits or Shirley Bassey on 2 tracks, and these tracks are remastered keeping the sound from all 4 channels, so sometimes you'll hear Bob Marley backwards chopped up in time with a bunch of tiny edits..."

Imagine Itchy and Scratchy versus Ren and Stimpy in an intracranial tag-team death match.

well, stew my pork!


Dead Body Collection‎ - Stockings Bloody Stockings

So what is the fascination that some noise heads have with stockings and nylon in general?

Hang on a minute, I've just thought of something ...

CDr released on Scorze Records in 2010 in an edition of 18.

no more tomorrow ... life is killing you


Xylex - Electronic Glue Gun

It's that man Andy Bolus again. This time he's slicing and dicing electro, cartoons, big beat and schizophrenia and delivering them on a gorgeous ten minutes of vinyl. You thought that Evil Moisture & Hair Stylistics was a weird combination? Sick minds think alike my friend.

There's a party goin' on right here on this 7" released on Doomation in 2002

we gonna celebrate and have a good time


Dead Body Collection‎ - Dead Body Parts

So ... how do you fancy seven and a half hours of Harsh Noise Wall to brighten your weekend? Oh, that's a shame.

DBC is the work of Aleksandryuki Nenawasetsu who also records as Kosmodrom, Creation Through Destruction and Order Of The Violence and also ran the personally much missed Victimology Rec. label.

Five C90 tape set released on HarshFuckedForLife Records in 2011 in a combined edition of 30.





Derek Bailey - Notes - Solo Guitar Improvisations

Some geezer making it up as he goes along. Released as an LP in 1985 by Incus.

Derek Bailey - Notes - Solo Guitar Improvisations


Kakerlak - Motel Dwelling

You should definitely be aware of this man's work ... if not, then starting off with one of his best creations is a stroke of luck. Well done. Even though there was a massive edition of 75, this is as rare as a politician's genuinely felt humility.

Two C30s and a C40 released in one of those nice vinyl VHS style snapcase arrangements.

Released on Dan Johansson's legendary Harsh Head Rituals in 2006.

It's not like my mother is a maniac or a raving thing. She just goes a little mad sometimes. We all go a little mad sometimes


Cindytalk - Camouflage Heart


This is the CD reissue of Cindytalk's intense debut LP from 1984.

Cindytalk - Camouflage Heart


Smrznik - Gletscher Kassette 60

One perspective of the artwork is that it is the closely observed bark of a tree. I see it as the large scale excoriation destructively created by a glacier over a period of geological time. Luckily, this is brilliant Balkan harsh noise courtesy of Neven Misaljević so you probably won't give a shit about what I think about the cover.

A tape that is inconveniently 62 minutes long and released on Zvukovina in 2010. There were ten copies of this for sale.

ice ice baby


Evil Moisture - Tongue-Phones Earstick Tri-Ax Chakka Khan

You're on your own with this one ... it's brilliant and entirely WTF!

CDr released on Ignivomous in 1997 in an edition of seven copies.

let me rock you, that's all I wanna do


Evil Moisture - Ghost Meat

So finally something vaguely familiar then ... a moist Pain Jerk perhaps? I'm going to have to wash my hands now after typing that. Then just when you think you know where you are, you flip it over and it fucks with your brain stem. So finally something vaguely familiar then ...

Excellent 7" released Smittekilde Records in 2007.

it's still murder btw


Evil Moisture - Hostess Double Breasted Windpipe

Again, this is the brilliant Andy Bolus. A man who stretches even my hyperbole to breaking point but frankly it's never stopped me before so here we go: William Seward Burroughs II decides to become a noise artist, opens up the best/shittest/best techno club ever then moves in with Rudolf and they live happily ever after. Indeed, the hills are alive with the sound of moisture! Now that wasn't so bad was it.

A seven inch released on Stomach Ache Records in 1993.

for those about to hostess ... no, that doesn't work ...


Evil Moisture / Cock E.S.P. - Monsters Of Cock

There are 381 individually named blurts on less than six minutes of vinyl ... did I split the sides? Erm ... no.

5" vinyl apparently released on at least a dozen great labels in the year 2000.

for those about to cock ... we salute you


BC / TM - Gun Metal Black

So, you get the master of tasks and prior to that the admirable Khristopher Reinshagen ... seriously, what the fuck is trying to claw it's way to the surface on his second track?

C90 released on Nurse Etiquette in 2008.

Gun Metal Jacket


Taskmaster - Ruined Hope

Never trust a priest with a stiff pole in his hand ... that's all I'm saying!

C30 released on the sublime Nurse Etiquette in 2010.

in a private space, no one can hear you scream


Taskmaster - Get Dead

I never bothered to try and find out who Taskmaster / NFW is ... not relevant I suppose.
