Intent to start putting some activity into website itself. Combining noise and recommended books will be one of the "formats".  Old, new, whatever.

Played that Lasse Marhaug album just the other day (on yt). Never really got into his works, but this one clicked. Great material.

Also, the recommendation of books, movies etc. that have at first glance no connection to noise or pe but somehow do is very welcome.

Longer piece of something I have talked also formerly, but perhaps not in such detail:

Excellent article ! - Nuori Veri totally deserves all the attention. BTW i dont understand a word of what he says but his vocals make strong impression. And although i believe that the tracks with vocals are the best, i appreciate the 'careful' use of them. - Taking the chance to recommend these tapes : https://brownhillmafia.bandcamp.com/album/cassette-series . I read in your shop is connected project / collab [?] . Not exactly like Nuori Veri, -i wouldnt call it industrial, and there is even less track-orientation- but the core elements are here too, even more 'raw' , as they are, and most of all : the ruralist spirit. I am not sure what takes to be called radioplay but these tapes create the picture and 'telling' the story, just with sound.

Thanks for the doc tips. I ll watch.

Great essay. As someone who has spent years living and working on a farm in the middle of nowhere, a lot of this is familiar. It is often romanticized by urban folks and we would have many visitors from the nearest city show up to get their fill of good ol’ down-on-the-farm living. But the reality is that it is brutal, but at the same time rewarding. I saw life and death everyday, whether its the season’s crops or the animals we had to slaughter. Nights of nothing happening, no internet, no tv, just discussion with coworkers and many beers. Your connection with the Earth changes as you watch the seasons turn. It’s beautiful and depressing at the same time.
I look back on those years fondly. I wish I was into making noise at the time. Some of those machines were so wretched and terrifying. Large rusted equipment that made some of the most insane mechanical noises… to go back in time and sample some of that would be a dream!

The article on ruralism and industrial reminds me a bit of Drudkh's Songs of Grief and Solitude album (which would be followed a year later by the tellingly titled "Anti-Urban" ep).  I always took the album as being rather political, showing that they, as a band, actually stand behind the paganism/romanticism/definitional ruralism that they promote with their music.  Several of the songs on it are acoustic and folk renditions of black metal songs they had written.  To me, this is a statement that "we can still make our music even if we were to go back to a rural way of life," which is much more than most other black metal bands could come close to claiming - just like many "anti-social" noise projects that would probably give up once they lose an electrical connection!

Especially when looking the older BM bands, most often, it is not phenomena of big cities and capital area. In Finland, most of the relevant bands would come from all sorts of small towns, small cities. Later on, more people would move to Helsinki or such.
I would assume this was partially merely thing that back in the day, bands were often started simply for "having something to do". Possible couple guys really into what they did, and couple friends could be pressured in, who otherwise wouldn't necessary have the passion to do much. Even if bands may not have had any particular worldview against metropolitan qualities & urban, it still had an effect.

Sure they can still make it - but would they be able to record it? :)

It seems this is the same Robert Longo who made the drawing for the first Glenn Branca LP. Always liked that cover art.

Correct. That image is from his earliest work, the Men in the Streets series, in which he staged photographs of himself and others wearing suits throughout New York, and then drew them photorealistically.

One thing I like about Longo is that he also sometimes works outside his comfort zone and colossally falls on his face in failure. There was a sculpture of his on the balcony of the Whitney when the new building first opened, a cyborg looking Star Trek type thing, that was honest to god one of the most hideous works of art I've ever seen, but still quite awesome. He also made the Johnny Mnemonic (forget spelling) film from a William Gibson story and it's genuinely unwatchable. I have most respect for artists who fail.
