19/Juke - Pieces




Unfathomable ethnographic whirlpools organised by genius beyond my imagination.

Originally self-released on vinyl in 1982, this is a lossless rip of the CD reissue on Time Bomb Records from 1996.

19/Juke - EZMD




Well who would have thunk it? It was nearly eight years ago when Mrs Inside posted the 19/Juke retrospective boxset. Erm, yeah, that was a long time ago! Definitely time to revisit the unfathomable genius of Shinro Ohtake.

This is a lossless rip of the CD reissue on UCA in 1991.

EPMD

This is a rip of the original C40 released on 用美社 in 1987.

Various - alt.noise: A Switch Records Compilation Of Noise And Electronics




It starts with Incapacitants and ends with something that sits right at home on one of the Macro Dub Infection compilations. I need say no more.

CD released on Switch Records Canada in 1997.

Jeph Jerman - A Fidgety And Excitable Engine




The inimitable Mr. Jerman continuing to confound expectations.

C40 released on Second Sleep in 2013. The source material was reused and released as a lathe and CDr combo nine years later in a sexy wooden box. Completely different results to what is on this tape but there were only 12 of those released. So brothers and sisters, weep along with me at the futility of ever thinking that we will hear that and console yourself with this excellent tape.

Various - Extreme Pleasures




Nothing not to like here: Sshe Retina Stimulants, Iugula-Thor, Atrax Morgue, Macronympha, MSBR and Mark Solotroff.

A C30 released on Slaughter Productions in 1996.

Volume I



The main interest for me is Dead Body Love but you also get Advokat Ihrer Hoheit, Drape Excrement and Lvnvs (which was largely the work of Devis Granziera who also collaborated with Marco Corbelli as Necrophonie / Necrofilia).

A C22 that was available for free for those who preorded the first tape and was of course released on Slaughter Productions in 1996.

Death Laid An Egg - Collection 2008-2010




A big old chunk of wall noise courtesy of Richard Ramirez and Trent Bingham.

Their first four releases gathered together in a double CDr retrospective on Room 2A in 2015 in an edition of 15.

ovoid

The film from which they take their name isn't a traditional Giallo and the director (Giulio Questi) isn't one that I would normally associate with the genre but it's pretty good all the same.

Blod - My Beloved Daughters

 

Confusingly, there are two different Swedish noise acts called Blod. This is the much nastier Blod. 2004 CD released by Seguhuva.

Leif Elggren - The Internationale

 

King Leif's 1996 7" single, a sort of cover version of an 1800's left-wing anthem.

Dead Body Love - Nechronology




This is a collection of generally unavailable releases (with a tape of previously unreleased work) from everybody's favourite corpse fiddler: Gabriele Giuliani. What? you have a top ten? Weirdo!

I posted this in September 2013. I've managed to learn a lot in the intervening period, not least patience. I've gone back to the rips and reduced the unwanted noise where I could, amplified where necessary and topped and tailed where the machine was allowed to run without adding anything of value. It took quite a while and it was worth it.

A genuinely great eight cassette retrospective released on Second Sleep in 2010.

Helicoid 0222MB - Helicoid 0222MB




So, have you ever been forced to stay at a party and ended up thinking "actually, this isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be". And when the music stops, you find that somebody has returned all of the doors and you're forced to leave? Me neither.
