Les Sentiers Conflictuels & Andrew King "1888"
          Listening on YouTube because my copy hasn't arrived yet. Concept album between a band I know nothing about and a guy named Andrew King who I think I found because he had something to do with L'Orchestre Noir (the only Wakeford stuff I really dig). Based on Jack the Ripper's letters, so in a certain mood I'd find this pretty corny but it's pretty good at the moment. Reminds me of if Stephen Stapleton had done more with William Bennett like the 150 Murderous Passions album or whatever it's called. This is kinda like neoclassical/abstract power electronics, I guess. I like it. Vocals sound both cheesy and demented, which I appreciate, like the aforementioned WB.

Reclaiming a chunk of my collection from storage has me doing some revisiting.

Bastard Noise - The Honesty Shop 12" (2016, Robotic Empire)
The long-since established signature Trogotronic sound is ever-present, and can basically do no wrong at this point. Never a huge fan of the guttural vocals, but the other vocal styles are here as well to make up for it. Still, all BN releases of the past 6 or 7 years seem to lack significance, much like their early period, and this is no exception. I would have avoided picking it up (and probably even avoided streaming/downloading) on my own accord, but it was a gift. Nothing actually bad to say about it, but as decent as it is I doubt it will get many revisits.

Bastard Noise & Pain Jerk - Imminent Economic Collapse 7" (1996, Alternative Tentacles)
A great, short blast from Pain Jerk (and the track title is a line from Dead Kennedys' "Bleed For Me", which I somehow didn't notice until this go 'round) followed by BN who at this point are still finding their footing, which will take a few more years. The flip side has a decent collaboration piece as the title track.

Bastard Noise & Outermost - Cauldron of Fire 7" (2000, DP)
Eric Wood has stated that this collaboration is his personal favourite BN release. Perhaps rightfully so, but at 45RPM it's all over so quickly there's hardly time to grasp anything. The noise 7" is a strange beast.

Bastard Noise - Cosmic Eulogy (Japan Tour) 12" (2000, Helicopter)
Perhaps the best Bastard Noise material from the Wiese era. A pretty lowkey piece, sonically, and an area that BN can thrive in when they want to.

Bastard Noise - Recycled CS (2000, RRRecords)
The above rivaled only by this. One of my favourite Recycled tapes to date. Some strange and intriguing sounds permeate the middle of the A-side. This might be the only legitimately "harsh noise" BN release.

Plus:

Oscillating Innards - Irretrievable 7" (2006 Troniks, etc)
Oscillating Innards / Redneck - P.H.N.W. 7" (2012, Antropofago Ateo)

Eric Wood has stated that this collaboration is his personal favourite BN release. Perhaps rightfully so, but at 45RPM it's all over so quickly there's hardly time to grasp anything. The noise 7" is a strange beast.

Don't remember well how that was, but this:
Outermost /  Bastard Noise  ‎– Studies Of Space And Sorrow 7"
New 2017 collaboration, and it I just last week wrote to Wood to express my view that this must be best BN stuff in recent years. It's not that it would be something dramatically different. We have the trademark bastard noise oscillations etc, but Outermost electronics are dirtier and there is some effect/processing on vocal sound too, not just slight reverb. Small details - but within noise, those are what matter! 4 tracks. Goes very fast, but nothing prevents few more spins of both sides!

JENNIFER WOLSKI tape
MSNP
One of rare cases when tape was damaged. Or lets say - not damaged, but almost. I started to listen this old MSNP tape that been sitting on shelves for years. Started to wonder should it sound like *this*. Not brutal harsh noise, but sort of tape manipulation. And next thing I realise tape deck has swalloved 1 meter of magnetic tape inside. Curiously nothing was wrinkled. Just carefully rewinding all back in to realize that from seam of magnetic tape & "lead tape", glue had dried. Opening tape, little operation and tape works great. ALL ON RED - ALL THE TIME, total harsh noise wall blasting. On the end of B-side you start to get little more nyance and changes. It ain't just grain and crackles, but heavy assault of noise. Stability and restless crunchy heaviness sets it right there on great side of harsh noise wall.

MACRONYMPHA "Beneath Hidden Tokyo" tape
Mother Savage
Later days Stell editions. Perhaps not as elegent with the computer type, but I can't complain when I'm assualted with 60 minutes of solid Macronympha noise. Surprise is that this has quite a lot of rhythm. Occasional Vivenza-type factory sound looping, but also even techno beats viciously overdriven to tape.

MACRONYMPHA "Session II" tape
Mother Savage
Less interesting tape. Not bad, but it's what it is: Slightly distant sounding session of guitars, metal junk and overall noise havoc, being brutalized at rehearsal room. Not really about editing or having the known MSNP crunchy heaviness. It's not bad, but there are countless better Macro tapes to listen instead.

HUMAN SKIN LANTERNS "Skin Stripperess" tape
MSNP
Taint + Macronympha. Could you go wrong? No. Looks and sounds brutal and merciless harsh noise. Violent, dark and oppressive spoken word pieces are included within harsh noise what has no "joyfulness" of the Japanese noise, only deranged and grim american violence. Excellent.

BRUME "The Sun" tape
Old Europa Cafe
I like a lot old Brume stuff. It's band many should know, but it's very very rarely I find myself talking to someone who appreciates Brume or hunts for some old tapes of his. This one, industrial beats and ritualistic chanting and vocal drones. Brutally overdriven, all-on-red to tape, layers saturated, nicely melting together. Including live material from 1988, which blends well next to studio works.

HANDS TO "Eurean recant" tape
BBP
Hands to is often so bleak and so minimal, that it's hard to really start going into detail what just happened. It's his older stuff, from 1990. Shorter pieces, less about unprocessed field recordings. More about actualling "doing things". J-card says all was recorded with borrowed gear. I suspect it could be one noteworthy element. Experimenting with unfamiliar gear to get something unexpected done?

Watched the Clinic Of Torture set from the IoPS dvd again last night. 
Holy fuck!! What an experience for eyes and ears!! Absolutely brutal sheets of harsh noise with the sobs and howls of the slaves(?) being tortured in the astonishing video playing behind Mikko mixed in through out. These dvds fucking slay.

Watched the Clinic Of Torture set from the IoPS dvd again last night. 

Those who are interested in IOPS dvdr's, most parts are still available even if they are not currently listed in nhfastore. They can be also found from F&V distribution.

JEPH JERMAN "Rundle" tape
Banned Productions
That old tape of Hands To was great, but so are these later days Jeph releases! Often ultra minimal, focused on atmosphere of single sound or situation. He made great field recordings where hardly anything happens. Just pure joy of hearing something what mr. Jerman recognized as interesting sound, and then just lets it be. Two tracks here. One per side. Rundle - one meaning being wheel or rotating object. Tracks are titled "of iron" and "of brass". It clearly describes object used, and for 15 minutes he... well, uses it. One side calm, other one with added feedback'ish resonance of painful levels. Excellent tape.

REPTILE WOMB "The Wampyric Specter" tape
Blood splattered covers look exactly like black metal demo covers. Featuring Harald Mentor of Will Over Matter in line-up. Is it his presence or simply that R.W. is evolving, but this is clearly projects best tape. Both visually and sonically. Dark and grim black industrial. Especially on b-side, I get impression there is more usage of movie soundtrack fragments, or did they actually do it all from scratch? Nevertheless, after CD and couple tapes, R.W. starts to actually be much more notheworthy and easy to recommend for those into "black industrial".

ALFARMANIA "LVM" tape
Styggelse
After their brilliant latest gig in Finland, have digged up few Alfarmania titles to listen. This, already 10 years ago, presents well the project. It's hard to make very detailed review of Alfarmania stuff, without concluding that there is very similar atmosphere in his releases. It's not saying it all the same, but certain aesthetics, type how sound is created and overall atmosphere, makes reviewing single tape quite useless. You pretty much know what you will get, but also it's won't be exactly same.

ENVENOMIST "Hidden" tape
Bloodlust
2006 - year when label made probably around 40 releases..? This was crazy era anyway. Next couple years pace of label was equally brutal. Last half of the decade label put out roughly 200 titles? In such flood, individual releases tend to disappear. Like what is the relevance of ltd 50 copies tape of Envenomist? Well, it was reissued on CDR two year later. I prefer tape. Half copies probably disappeared in hands of people briefly visiting new wave of american noise scene. Tape is good, though. 60 minutes, 7 tracks of gloomy synth works. Dark ambient? Hmm.. not sure. It's echoing, very much tonal, and musical, yet barely "cosmic" synthworks. There are no swirling psychedelia, nor brute industrial feel. But neither airy drifting of soft ambient muzak. So may I repeat: good tape!

This tape was a private release and is actually a split with The Wampyric Specter, who is the artist on the B-side. The tracks on this split are gonna be released in their live form from the recent Kontti gig (additionally noisefucked by Harald Mentor) sometime in the near future.

Run For Omniphobia “unreleased untitled 30 min. piece” 2016
   Apparently the trio of Eddie Giles (Defective/Final Solution), John Grimaldi (Hand & Knee/Defective), and Jay Howard (Circuit Wound); what I thought might be some kind of harsh noise or power electronics turns out to be some pretty bold “experimental” sound collage-type stuff. Pretty damn good, too, with a strange fidelity that's neither clear nor lo-fi, but is “wide” and well-mixed. Starts off on the more bedroom-y guitar and tapes side of things, but I hear everything from unidentifiable mystery sounds to tape-processed feedback, to synthesizer tone snippets, to field recordings, to stringed/bowed instruments that seem to morph into stretched cymbal percussion sounds. Shit, considering all that, this isn't far from what I've heard of John Cale or Angus MacLise's experiments pre- and post-Velvet Underground. At one point, some unintelligible vocals chatter about something drenched in reverb right before a section I can only compare to H.N.A.S. or at the moment, Umgreifende. There are lot of skillful edits leading to  busier if quieter sections that  also draw the comparison. In thirty minutes, it meanders a bit, but still immersive and you forget what you're listening to. I really enjoy that. Hard to tell what sort of equipment is being used re: analog vs. digital, samplers vs. tapes, and so on. That's a good thing. Hard to tell the origin/source of a lot of the sounds, that's always a good thing. For fans of: If, Bwana, Urdwygg The Goldrr, Ultra.

Run For Ominphobia “Assembly Bill 109” Cdr (Submersive Productions)
   First piece goes back-and-forth between sections of synthesier melody ala Suicide to synthesizer noise for long sections ala very early Whitehouse. Normally anything that'd draw those comparisons at once would get my attention pretty well, but there's not a lot going on. This isn't bad, but really needs some vocals or just other accompaniment. I guess on the other hand I somewhat admire the “bold minimalism,” to borrow a phrase from a pal.
   Odd pulsing and beeping paired with a mumbled background voice opens the second track prior to a sort of Krautrock-type noisy synthesizer loop. I guess I might “get” what's being done here, now, and I like the minimalist and no wave/krautrock approach. Again, this is like if Whitehouse in their earlier days were doing something other than what could be called Power Electronics. Pretty repetetive for it's minimalism by today's standards, but fans of Will Over Matter might have something to find here. When things kick into some odd “squiggly” electronics against a somewhat unexpected quicker rhythm, only to disintegrate into arcs of descending tones, the inevitable Maurizio Bianchi comparison occurs, but that's not a bad thing when handled correctly. In this case, it also has that in common with “Milles Collines” by Cryptofascisme.It's really hard to tell how this was recorded, which again, adds to the appeal/mystery.  Certainly some of the weirdest bare-bones industrial-type stuff I've heard recently. Hard to recommend this, but it's worth hearing because it's that weird and idiosyncratic.

Run For Omniphobia “Executive Order 13603” Cdr (Submersive Productions)
   Apparently recorded and assembled over a 15-year period between 2002 and now? I guess it sounds like it, because this stuff resembles more closely weird experimental Japanese stuff than anything familiar to me or going on right now in terms of vogue underground whatever. This is some pretty surreal, drugged-sounding cut-up and long-form sound collage type stuff with more emphasis on the musical side than the non-musical experimental. Edits are slower, sections are longer, many parts have rhythms, actual beats, or progressions that approach melody but don't quite arrive there. This is stuff with an almost cinematic, soundtrack sort of feeling that gets a bit David Lynch at times but would work better as a backdrop for Only God Forgives, but if Gaspar Noe had directed it instead Windig-Refn. The only part which took me out of the trance this had me in was a sample of a somebody reading from the Dr. Seuss book Green Eggs and Ham, which seems intentionally out-of-place, but still. Come on. Definitely weird and challenging stuff, but not quite with a lasting impact. I'll still listen to this a few more times.

Hand & Knee “Orphaned Road” and “Scorched” CS (Submersive Productions)
   Pretty weird combination of abstract/musique concrete, droning industrial, and almost-PE-type electronics and vocals. Everything moving at a noticeable but still slow pace, drenched in distortion, with a grainy, familiar texture reminding me of certain mid-period Prurient and some other Hospital Productions projects. Both releases seem to have a tendency to lapse from one piece into the next, making transitions hard to distinguish, but in a more fluid sense on the latter release, with a more meandering pace on the former. The former, “Orphaned Road” seems to incorporate more acoustic clatter while “Scorched” emphasizes the PE elements that at some points remind me just a little bit of, say, Control. Both have the same static-laden, lo-fi quality that sometimes gets a little monotonous but fits the character pretty well. I seem to like the latter collection more, that said. Good stuff from John Grimaldi, one half of Defective and Run For Omniphobia. I think this might appeal to fans of the Annihilus roster (NTT etc).

Defective “Piecemeal Social Engineering” CS (Submersive Productions)
   Sharp and abrasive PE/noise duo of Eddie Giles (also known as E.J. from Final Solution) and John Grimaldi, of Hand & Knee (mentioned above). Pretty good, if “typically American” sounding stuff that eschews usual sexual or degenerate subject matter in favor of a sort of outsider social analysis/commentary. If I'm not mistaken, the spoken vocals are done by Eddie while John does the shouts/commands. I like this duo approach, in that the sound covers territory like say Deathpile or Control, but also weirder, lo-fi experimental and industrial noise that almost reminds me of Macronmypha or Stimbox in their crudest moments. Lots of distortion that again for me recalls very old Prurient, maybe stuff like History  of A.I.D.S.-era. More diverse sounds than the first couple tracks seem to let on. Psychologically maladaptive sound wherein the vocals seem to take on a lot of moods, from confident Grunt-type shouting to desperate pleading like old Ramleh. I haven't heard too much Hydra, but something tells me this could very well appeal to fans of Greg Scott's stuff. Check this out if you're into anything Wonderland Club has come out with recently, in terms of “actual band” PE, this isn't bad at all. On the B-side, this ends up closer to say, Con-Dom than the other material either artist is known for. Overall both very traditional and surprising/experimental. Stuff like this is why low-key stuff can sometimes be more intriguing that names you already know and love. I ask to you: what is meant by “guttertronics” and “kipple?!”

Walter Khan “From Nothing To Nothing” CS (Vanity Recordings, 2017)
   Artist describes this as “austere and isolated electronics,” which conjures very different things in my mind than what this ended up sounding like, but his description is definitely still accurate. FOR FANS OF OLD RAMLEH!! Minimal as hell and everything drenched in echo and reverb rather than distortion/fuzz, with shouted/pleaded vocals that both rise above and bleed into the surrounding drones and feedback. All electronic devices used sound very simple and as if they're not functioning properly. Sound completely emphasizes dread and severity rather than aggression and violence, although the vocals do verge on vicious, Strict-type screaming at some moments, eventually degrading into this sort of pathetic, squawking/groaning sound, and I mean that in the best way possible. This sounds as troubled and unstable as early Sutcliffe Jugend sounds vicious and energetic. I very much enjoy this kind of thing, as it's really obviously only suitable for certain types of dispositions and attention spans. This isn't for normal or undisturbed individuals. If prescribed medication doesn't work for you, perhaps this will...RECOMMENDED!

EDWIGE - The Inconsolable Widow Thanks All Those Who Consoled Her promo CS
Got this from Dan when he cleaned out some space at home. Tape version that was meant to be sent out to labels and venue people or something like that, but I'm not sure the 10 copies were even sent to the other boys in the band? Completely blown out, in the red, and wihtout the "clarity"of the actual LP which came a year later. It's almost like an entirely different album. The muddy quality actually puts it closer to the self titled tape on HHR (now LP on Urashima) than the album it later became. Great stuff.
