I decided I’d do an all-noise episode this week, but purposely tripped myself straight out of the gate. Bestial Earthhammer is a black metal tape, complete with all the lo-fidelity fun you might associate with the genre. But that’s okay, I’m sure the rest of the show will make up for this offense– witness KK Null and Seijiro Murayama’s “Absolute Magnitude” album!
I had a hard time reading the inside of the Haunted Vawmitt double 3″– I had received it at a show, had a nice chat with the friendly folks themselves, but still had to shine a really bright light on the package until I could decipher exactly what it was called!
Right now, I’m thoroughly digging this live Merzbow album, “Live at Henie Onstad Art Center.” The performance was apparently part of the “Kurt Schwitters in Norway” exhibition, which must have been seriously amazing. Wouldn’t it be great to have things like this in Southern Illinois?
Speaking of seriously amazing– have you heard the Zelphabet series of releases curated by GX Jupitter-Larsen? These are incredible, zelphabetically-themed discs (volume “K,” which I am particularly stoked about, drops in 18 days!) from all sorts of noise artists. I’m playing “E” right now, which has Ed Osborn, Elliot Sharp, Emil Beaulieau, and Evil Moisture.
