It makes me wish that there were live recordings of some of his less song-oriented material.
Do you mean like Hal Hutchinson own name material? If so Hal Hutchinson live in Finland 2016 tape is amazing.

I haven't heard that one yet, but I guess that it sort of scratches the same itch, so to speak.  I like the HH studio albums.  I was thinking more along the lines of the material on Anti-Personnel Explosive Device, though, now that I think about it I think he might have somewhere?  I recall some sort of teaser track more along the lines of early ZSS being posted a while ago, but that might have been for a new studio recording.

Unlikely much to come anymore, like discogs page informs, all recording and label activity ended in 2021. I think it is good time to grab any of his items now, as availability hardly guaranteed later.  HH's Cold Industrial Experience ‎CD, as much as it may seem self promotion , I would say stands out nicely! It has kind of not songy' but structural feel of ZSS, but spirit of HH's works of industrial-machinery noise loops etc.  Kind of blends in noisier industroal what ZSS did in first recordings, with what HH did with less harsh, more bleak industrial.. almost like finding the unification. If one doesn't like aesthetics of ZSS, this should work still fine!


I was hoping to at least get a follow-up to the XE collaboration.

Or the collab with Rodger Stella. I remember reading about something with Streicher in the works too?

Yes, that's what I was thinking of too.

NAJ & GOVERNMENT ALPHA - The Declining Sun C60 (Xerxes, 1997)
Excited to lay my hands on the GA - Xerxes box as soon as I can. This is an old Xerxes title that isn't included though.
Side A has Naj treating GA's sounds. Vast lunar scenes with an ominous nerve to it. Clouds of super fine static sprayed out into space, feedback beaming, pulses pulsing, engines... engining. Hard not to just drift away to. Deep, rich and very very evocative. Truly magnificent. A mystery why I haven't picked up anything by Naj solo. Oh well...
Flip over and Government Alpha goes harshnuts apeshit with raw and acoustic sounds from Naj. Quite the contrast! It's an interesting collision, especially as Yasutoshi lets those sounds be as they are to a surprising extent, just tossing them around with his own electric fire in an almost haphazard way. A different side of GA. Great great stuff. The winner here is Naj's take though.
Stellar collaboration.

Many thanks for the suggestions. How could I forget about ZSS? I have most of his releases I think, except the live recordings. I did however have the pleasure of witnessing one of the legendary finnish cargo gigs. A great memory for sure. I will definately have to check out Cold Industrial Experience.

Regarding Sarin Snow: Yes. I'll need to listen again but my first reaction was that I preferred the earlier recordings. Less polish and more charm, maybe? I'll go see if I can find  the Totenrune split, haven't heard that one.



Good stuff! Some ecstatic moments and nice textures here, and always nice to hear french vocals done in this style. Was this done on a modular?

Thank you. There's some modular action but not all the time, and most of what you would imagine is modular synth more than likely isn't and vice versa, haha.

Out of town until end of month. No possibility of physical records, but ended up listening today couple classics from tube.
Incapacitants - Feedback of N.M.S. -  is one of absolute favorites in their discography. It is the era I heard first, and that insane sound of multuple simultaneous high pitched feedback tones is something you rarely ever hear anyone doing. Vocals on the live track are insane, and also noise unusually fierce. Recent vinyl reissue makes it physically available, that is great. Couple CD versions exists, but never been that widely distributed by western noise distros.
And I can tell it is not that I would have not tried. Only couple times managed to actually get reply and order huge pile of Alchemy stuff. Most of the time, no reply whatsoever. This was already back when label was active. I think Jojo mentioned in old interviews that Japan is their main market, and he was surprised by some 90's labels who actually sold very little to Japan and most copies to US and Europe. Incapacitants is total ripper and I albums like As Loud As Possible sure are heavier and more bass-loaded, but in terms of noisiness and absolute harshness, Feedback of N.M.S. is vastly more brutal noise album. I guess some of the later albums have more classic status simply because they were far more widely available in west?

Masonna "madamoiselle anne....." CD. I can't fully decide is it this, or Noskl in Ana that is my absolute favorite of Masonna. Both are CD's that have so much memorable moments that kind of define what is Masonna - for me. Before and after he did great recordings, but some of early ones he felt like still technically not yet reaching his peak, and later on, the freshness started to go away, and more linear approach. At least based on gut feeling. It is absolutely mindblowing to think, only one CD version done in 1993 and never re-released!? While most of stuff before and after has been done....

I've always had the idea that complex modulations are easier done on the modular, but lately I've realized I can often reach similar, and sometimes better results with more a more "hands on" approach to conventional synths. They both have their place I think.

They absolutely do. I also think it's easier to go complex with a modular synth due to the fact there's no set architectures in how the signal flows through your synth  and you can potentially mess with everything in the signal path as long as you don't put outputs into other outputs, but ultimately, some hardware synths also offer some very complex programming possibilities or quirky architectures, which then allow for very complex or "different" outcomes as well.

The hardware synth I used here has a rather peculiar signal path, and I've used the modular in rather simple and traditional ways. I don't like eurorack for complex stuff, I love my Serge for that though.

And I apologise for derailing the thread.

Interracial Sex – Shower Head C47 (Fuck Marry Kill)
I was extremely lucky to come across a 2nd hand version of the special edition recently. Well worth the money. Vocals are unhinged. Metal work is recorded so well and the way it overlaps with the other elements is excellent. Three songs per side and they are more long-form, giving room to stretch and let the pieces develop. Sometimes more vocal focused, other times more feedback and metal abuse. Tape feels varied even though it's using a lot of the basic elements and building blocks.

Kartio - Klimaprofesis C60 (Satatuhatta | Mögähead)
Modular synth-focused project by Pentti who is also behind Umpio. While I'm usually not much for modular synth, this album has been on constant rotation. A lot of little details to the sounds and good dynamics and variation across the album. A nice album to listen to on a good pair of headphones. Also check out the first album Sähkömusiikki as well. Both tapes highly recommended.

Sitting in my listening pile is the new Misanthropic Agenda batch, The Rita Magazine CD reissue, and the Monde Bruits and Government Alpha boxsets... Need more time in the day.

Energy Directed Inward C90: Late 90s compilation. 1-2 years ago i had it in my cart but never did the purchase, and it disappeared. Monday i found it as bonus in a package it arrived. Lot of known names in here, some unknowns too, others still going strong, others faded-out and although they deliver very fine noise are somehow overlooked [?] nowdays -which isnt bad from an economic aspect. Sometimes i wish people to loose their interest in noise so the only price they could unload their stuff is for pennies, for me to grab it, haha-. I wont say much other than this is a highly enjoyable tape -not classic ofcource, neither all great, but the overall quality make it better than its individual tracks and allow you to forgive 'inaccuracies' , in other words a good comp ! - , and if you see it for the normal price it was sold on Discogs dont think it twice, you probably wont be as lucky as i was. Bait ? One Dark Eye, TEF for sure. Backed up by Hermit, Tender Love, Audible XXY etc.

Scald Hymn - You're Not Supposed To Be Alive CS

Creaking, creepy violin-esque sounds. Blown out low frequency charges that feel as if they are so hot they may fizzle out. The sound feels close and direct not airy or open. Crisp and right in front of your face. Sometimes the noise falls into brief loops only to devolve back into chaos. Solid.

Anal Drill - Stimulating The Masochist CS

Crushing Ramirez noise. Not wallish or static. Occasional phaser sweeping and warbling laser beam feedback. Active and exciting. Plenty of range while still remaining heavy and punishing and possessing the perfect amount of analog tape crud sound. Some brief agonized vocal sounds in places even which are super welcome. Tasteful use of vocals in harsh noise? Never a problem for me if done correctly! Overall monster of a release. Classic!

That was probably the one for me. You say power electronics, I say hook your sorry carcass up to the grid and just mainline the shit.

Prick Decay - Mud Sound For Car Stereos CD

Truly demented shit. Not goofy or totally funny although there are elements of twisted humor.  Just utterly unreasonable sounds on this one. Grotesque no-fi warped tape destruction, obnoxious and confounding samples, ticking clocks, milk, crunching static, disorienting and constant use of the stereo field. Like a disgusting broken TV constantly flipping through channels of filth. This does not let you rest for a moment and makes no fucking sense in the slightest.

Unreasonable- great descriptor!

Like Emil Beaulieau, in character, complaining that there's "no legal precedent" for The Haters.
