va - Dry Lungs V


How's this to start 2022 with a big screeching bang? By all indications, this nascent trip around the sun will be just as shit as all the previous ones have been. Let's drown our sorrows in feedback with an absolute classic compilation from 1992. This is the fifth (duh) and final entry in the Dry Lungs series, as compiled by Paul Lemos (of Controlled Bleeding, Skin Chamber, Fat Hacker) starting in 1985. The first 3 volumes were LPs, then the 4th was released as both an LP and a CD (such was the market in the early 90s, I suppose) and this last one spans two packed CDs. Both the husband and I clearly recall our first encounter with this monster. It was an affordable introduction to names that everyone knows now, but were relatively unknown then: Masonna, Violent Onsen Geisha, Trance, Arcane Device, Hijokaidan, Cranioclast, Un Drame Musical Instantane, Etant Donnes, Carl Stone, Incapacitants, PGR, Desaccord Majeure, Solmania... plus Controlled Bleeding in their many guises and solo tracks by all three members. It's really one of the best noise compilations ever produced, made even better by its inclusion of sounds that aren't strictly "noise" but are definitely related.

We have loads of things that sit as draft posts that appear to be good ideas at the time and then are "temporarily" forgotten. I currently have shit be gwan as da yoot have resolutely refused to say. So Mrs Inside has dragged this back into existence as a holding position. Just checked the upload and there are tracks missing (thanks to masaya for pointing that out). So ... here's cue and log of the discs.

The Dry Lungs series certainly was a cornerstome of the genre. Much appreciated.
