Nervous Corps - Deicidal Tendencies

Smart title and cleverly variegated waller business ... apart from the gloriously named "Locust Abortion Technician With Deicidal Tendencies" track that would sit comfortably in the canon of the top Japanese harsh-head destruction merchants.

A great CDr from Wm. Rage on his own !MONDO ANTHEM! from 2019. It's not MP3.

Deicidal Tendencies


Klinikal Scum / Lidless Eye - Split

It's that man Knox Mitchell again but this time sharing a tape with Ryan Oppermann (aka Redrot, Neuntöter Der Plage, Xombie, Post-Mortem Junkie, etc.). Play it nice and loud!

C62 released on Green Records And Tapes in 2013 in a mammoth edition of forty. It's not MP3.

Klinikal Scum / Lidless Eye


Lidless Eye - Lusbirdan

16 gorgeous chunks of noise that makes me laugh out loud. Callow observers ... feel free to wonder what kind of weird shit occupies our minds constantly when we are in civilian garb. If it's any consolation, we daren't do more than scratch that surface.

C60 released on Green Records And Tapes in 2015 in an edition of 18. It's not MP3.



Dried Up Corpse - Black Sand / Obsidian

Another missive from one of my favourite people: Stan Reed.

C30 courtesy of Meaning Corrupted in 2014. I would imagine there were 16 of these. I know it's not MP3.

Black Sand / Obsidian


Lidless Eye - Faces In Axis

As far as I am concerned, Knox Mitchell has never made anything that is less than great. So now he can sleep at night. So you're watching a foreign language film, played backwards at variable speeds and you start to wonder why all films at made this way. Or something else entirely.

A CDr courtesy Green Records And Tapes in 2015 in and edition of negligable and it's not MP3.

not said it for a while and i'm not missing it


Lidless Eye - Wet Depression

A lovely offering from Knox Mitchell.

This is my disco and gives you a small insight into why I don't get invited to parties ... no problem for me, anybody prepared to invite me is a place I don't want to be!

A self-released C50 fom 2014. There were only nine of these. This one is not MP3.

you are not mine you ugly thing


Hans Reichel - Bonobo


Solo guitar scratching by Hans Reichel, recorded at Conny Plank's studio (though not produced by him) in 1975, released on wax by FMP the following year. CD reissue by Corbett vs Dempsey in 2017. 

Hans Reichel - Bonobo


Nervous Corps - Dead System

Harsh Junk Wall Noise? Probably. The art is by Stan Reed by the way.

Another CDr on !MONDO ANTHEM! in 2019 in an edition of 16. It's not MP3.

Dead System


Nervous Corps - Dead System II

23 blurts of hardcore / grindcore wall noise from Mr Rage ... very entertaining.

CDr on William Rage's !MONDO ANTHEM! in 2019 in an edition of 16. It's not MP3.

Dead System II


Corpse Candle - Radio Telepathy

A wonderful set of sci-fi horror noise on what thruned out to be one of Robert Meldrum's final recordings.

C86 released on Meaning Corrupted in 2013. It's not MP3.

Radio Telepathy


An Innocent Young Throat-Cutter - Cold Metal Table / Stained In Red

Richard Ramirez & Cristiano Renzoni doing what they do very well indeed!

C60 released on Meaning Corrupted in 2014 in an edition of 16. It's not MP3.

Cold Metal Table / Stained In Red


Burial Ground - Road Games

Fierce horror film themed wall noise. You know it makes sense.

C92 released on Meaning Corrupted in 2014. It's not MP3.




Blue Sabbath Black Cheer - Electric Heavyland RIP

Electric Heavyland was the record store ran by Mr and Mrs Rage and the place where Mr Rage and Mr Reed first rehearsed as BSBC. This was recorded to mark the store's passing ...

3" CDr released on Mike Finklea's (aka Striation's) Nefarious Activities in May 2020 in an edition of 50. It's not MP3.



Dead Machines + Withdrawal Method - Withdrawn Dead

This is a live in-store recording at Electric Heavyland. A lively affair especially considering Withdrawal Method's equipment caught fire (and not in an entertaining Crazy World Of Arthur Brown stylee). It was initially planned for release as an LP but for some random reason, the mastering on Side B sounded awful. So, whaddya do? Deface / improve Side B rendering it unplayable and put the collaborative track on a CDr. Obviously.

A necessarily single-sided LP with (surprise) a CDr released on Enterruption in 2006 in a sprightly edition of 62. It's not MP3.

Withdrawn Dead


Burial Ground - The Return Of The Living Dead

Don't worry, it's not them!

I just want to spend a little part of my life acknowledging all of the anon shamen who waste their time thinking I give one single shiny shit about their wannabe troll superstar efforts. So, well done you.

This is the broiling harsh noise work of Anthony Shaw. If you've been here for a while, you know I love him in a large way! Apparently, it's the best way. Punchlines on a postcard.

It's a C84 released on Meaning Corrupted in 2013. There were 16 of these.

It is MP3.

Werewolf Jerusalem - And Hell Followed

Sometimes, it's slightly inconvenient to be an atheist. Take this for instance: if I believed in social control fairy tales then my Satan would be a Palestinian demonically spit-roasting the shitty little career narcissist. I do gain feelings of great hope when picturing the image but imagine if I believed it on an existential basis? I would be kneeling whilst laughing my face of at the impending juggernaut of "fake justice" smashing the crime syndicate. So erm yeah ... it's just the kneeling thing I'm missing out on? Way to go atheism!

A C60 released on Meaning Corrupted in 2014. A traditional edition of 16 that is not MP3.

Bar-B-Q Trump


Black Leather Jesus - A Prized Assfuck

Now the thought of a Black Texan Jesus dressed in Leather raining righteous punishment down upon the ass of The Filth Pig pleases me greatly. I have to admit that the prescience of our intrepid band of noise mongers is also a thing of splendour. To name the tape after The Filth Pig's new nickname as he makes the seamless transition from the White House to the Big House seven years before it will happen? Bravo!

On this recording, our forceful disciplinarians are: Sean E. Matzus, Vanessa Gates, Tanner Garza, Richard Ramirez, Thomas Mortigan, Joseph Gates, Zach Guttowsky, Carol Sandin, and Austin Caustic. Yeah, I know.

A C60 released on Meaning Corrupted in an edition of 16 in 2014. It's not MP3.

Fuck Trump!


An Innocent Young Throat-Cutter - It Kills And Devours The Male

The reaction of Malaria in one days time when she finally realises that it wasn't his real hair after all and she is entitled to half of his wealth in the divorce settlement. Yes, the final reckoning when she contemplates selling her soul for 50% of nothing.

Richard Ramirez building walls that the orange Emporer could only dream of on this double C92 set released on Meaning Corrupted in 2013. It's not MP3.

The irony of an orange white supremacist is lost on them.

I guess that's the state of American education these days.

Oh yeah, before I forget ... Fuck Trump and his Space Force!


Dried Up Corpse - Waterfall

I fully intended to spend January posting only free jazz but the filthy ankle of harsh noise has turned my gaze. So, things are going to get consistently loud for a while!

This is Stan Reed who amongst a plethora (geddit) of great things records as The Broken Penis Orchestra and was a member of the uplifting and crushing Blue Sabbath Black Cheer.

A C90 released on Meaning Corrupted in 2013. This isn't MP3 ... it's a 16-bit flac of the tape. Any issues with that, please advise your therapist.

Fuck Trump And His Russian Golden Showers


Keiji Haino + Masataka Fujikake Duo - Hard Wo Nanjujo Sasetara Hikarino Tsuboga Furisosogunoka?

Preamble. Postamble.

CD released on Fulldesign Records in 2015. It's not MP3.

Haino Keiji Fujikake Masataka Duo - May The Alphabet Disappear

So, you put a guitarist and a drummer together ... and then you wonder if it is any good.

CD released on Fulldesign Records in 2009.

Fuck Trump


Filthy Fecal Mutants - Untitled

You know those make believe superhero movies where random unrelated cos-play perverts band together to save the Earth? Well, this is the noise equivalent. If you can't guess, it's Darren Wyngarde (Filthy Turd), Nicola Vinciguerra (Fecalove) and George Proctor (Mutant Ape). A comment on the Dolls? An accurate description of me and Mrs Inside? You lot? Well, in the 2021 spirit of global harmony ... it's all of us. To paraphrase the chimp spanker: "We are the Turd. We are the future!".

Frank Lowe & Eugene Chadbourne - Don't Punk Out

Now, here's an existential series of questions. You are listening to this, would it make you think ...

A: "praise be for all of my misguided youth that I spent taking drugs because now I understand"

B: "this is why they told me to stop taking drugs and now I get it"

C: "fucking hell, it's Frank Lowe & Eugene Chadbourne"

D: "did somebody mention drugs?"

E: all of the above.

Originally released as an LP on QED Records in 1979. This is the CD reissue from Emanem in 2000. It's not MP3.

Alan Silva / Kidd Jordan / William Parker - Emancipation Suite #1

"Recorded in live performance at the Vision Festival, St. Nicholas of Myra Church, New York City on May 29, 1999. This composition is dedicated to the Vision Festival, to Sun Ra, George Russell and Leon Theremin."

You don't need an intro to these poeple but surely to god there is a full scale uncredited orchestra ... is that really a backing track? You know when you bought 200 Motels and took it home and thought what the fuck have I done on the first listen? Well, this is all of the good bits but with extra depth. It's a sound so large it could easily fill an empty world. I hope there aren't loads of people who have rocked up thinking this is a jazz blog because I'm going to piss on a lot of chips when I go back to murky analogue noise.

I think I semi-faked sincerity there ... I guess I nearly have it made.

Rashied Ali / Le Roy Jenkins Duo - Swift Are The Winds Of Life

va - Tochnit Aleph 072


The 72nd (duh) release on Tochnit Aleph was this edition-of-100-copies compilation CDR from 2006, with exclusive insanity from the Schimpfluch crew and friends: Dave Phillips. Raionbaishi, Dear Michael... (aka Michael Barthel/Recordings For the Summer), Runzelstirn & Gurgelstock, G*Park, Sudden Infant, and Birthmark Orchestra (a collaboration by Rudolf, Andy Bolus/Evil Moisture and Hidekazu Miyano of The Machine Gun TV.

Ornette Coleman Trio - Live Manchester Free Trade Hall 1966

David Izenzon (who played many times with Ornette, Bill Dixon and Don Cherry amongst others) on bass, the brilliant Charles Moffett (who played with the likes of Frank Lowe and Joe McPhee) on drums, alongside the majesty of the earthbound Sun-Ra creating an entirely new language.

This is far from the skronk assaults of people that came in his wake but it arguably wouldn't have been possible without him ... or maybe it would have just taken a lot longer.

Just over ten years after this gig, Sex Pistols would rip another hole in Manchester's space-time continuum on the same street.

An "unofficial" double CD that remasters a radio broadcast of the night's events. It's not MP3.




Nkondi & E Yard - thebeatstopshere


Split tape of obscure noise from 2004, released on Erik Arteaga/Nkondi's dollfullofrivets label.

Rashied Ali Quartet - New Directions In Modern Music

Compared to a Brötzmann onslaught, this is Bird and Trane having a nice chat. It's just as revolutionary.

Originally a vinyl release from 1973. This is the remastered CD released on Knit Classics and Survival Records in 1999. It's not MP3.

Fuck Trump In New Directions


The Peter Brötzmann Octet - The Complete Machine Gun Sessions

This has the remastered version of the original Machine Gun LP from 1968 with a couple of alternative takes and the live Frankfurt version from the "Fuck De Boere" release just so you can compare and contrast.

CD released on Atavistic as part of their Unheard Music Series in 2007. It's not MP3.

Spastic Colon - Premature Release


1995 cassette by California duo of Jorge Martin & Erik Hoffman, who released it on his Pinch-a-Loaf label. Hoffman would go on to run the influential Ground Fault label.

Brötzmann / Bennink - Schwarzwaldfahrt

Peter Brötzmann and Han Bennink recorded from the 9th to the 11th of May, 1977, in the Blackforest near Aufen and at the Schwarzenbach-Talsperre. The first disc was released on vinyl in 1977 and the remainder was previously unheard.

Brötzmann, Satoh, Moriyama - Yatagarasu

Hair Stylistics & Carre - Slave to the Nihil-Rhythm (Live SuperDeluxe, Tokyo)


Online-only album from a website that doesn't exist any longer.  Live collaboration by genuine weirdo Masaya Nakahara (of whom Badgerstump and I are big fans) and industrial duo Carre from 2011. 

Hair Stylistics & Carre - Slave to the Nihil-Rhythm  (Live SuperDeluxe, Tokyo)


P. Brötzmann Group - Fuck De Boere (Dedicated To Johnny Dyani)

There is a long and proud tradition of calling out racists and telling them to go fuck themselves and this is a good one! Two different outfits recorded at the Frankfurt Jazz Festival in 1968 and 1970 respectively. This features the cream of European free improv jazz heads. Check out the constituent parts ... a little slice of legendary.

CD released on Atavistic as part of their Unheard Music Series in 2001. It's not MP3.

Fuck De Boere. Fuck Trump. Fuck Fascism.


The current version of America is only a temporary but somewhat predictable aberation but it doesn't change our potential!

I'm not American but we are are all in this together and we will win.


Takayanagi Masayuki New Direction For The Art - Complete "La Grima"

This is a different three piece and given the date and the context of the venue you would expect a totally different approach. So what dya know? Woodstock this is not! This is unlike what is on the previous post but similarly uncompromising. I'm pretty sure that greatly abbreviated versions of this recording had appeared before and then lo and indeed behold, you get the full 40+ minutes, recorded live at Genya Festival in Sanrizuka on the 14th of August, 1971.

CD released on Doubtmusic in 2007. It's not MP3.

La Grima


New Direction Unit - Mass Hysterism In Another Situation

Oh damn! This is a stripped down armour plated beast of a recording. Think of the Hijokaidan end of the free jazz spectrum.

Masayuki Takayanagi and Akira Iijima on guitar and Hiroshi Yamazaki on all manner of Satan's bongos.

Recorded live at Kid Ailak Hall on August the 14th, 1983.

CD relesaed on Jinya Disc in 2006.

Utterly magnificent!


Masayuki "Jojo" Takayanagi & New Direction For The Arts - Free Form Suite

You already know where this is heading. Recorded live at Aoi Studio, Tokyo on 19 May 1972, seeing a vinyl release in the same year. This is the first digitally mastered version from 26 years later.

CD released on Three Blind Mice in 1998. It's not MP3.

Free Form Suite


Milford Graves - Meditation Among Us

Milford Graves is good enough. So what do you think happens when you add Kaoru Abe, Toshinori Kondo, Toshiyuki Tsuchitori and Mototeru Takagi? Yeah, a highpoint of human achievement and as close to perfect as you can get!

Originally released as an LP on Kitty Records in 1977. This is the CD reissue on DIW in 1992.

Meditation Among Us


How Is Your 2021 Going So Far ... ?

Well, ours is going spectacularly well! Mrs Inside emailed me yesterday to cordially explain that her mind had been blown. This has since blown my mind ... and frankly I'm in love and have spent a lot of the past 24 hours grinning my stupid face clean off. The point of our mutual ardour is Nyege Nyege Tapes. It's available so won't be posted but if this year starts to go wrong, just spend some time in their universe. If you need convincing:


Milford Graves - Bäbi

This could have been one of those lost rumours. This was originally released as an LP on IPS in 1977. The original masters were lost and dedicated heroes took this transfer from pristine vinyl and gave us the opportunity to hear it. The evident joy from all involved in the live recording is a total head rush. As if that isn't enough, there is a second disc of improvisations from 1969.

Oh, did I mention that apart from Milford Graves, you also get Arthur Doyle and Hugh Glover?

A double CD released on Corbett vs. Dempsey in 2018. It's not MP3.
