Noisextra 01: Sonic Devil
 
After a much-needed break, Mike and Greh are back with a new plan, more guests and a broader range of classic NOISE to discuss. For our first week, we chose a lesser-known record by a project we both love, Sonic Devil by MASONNA. Out on Pinch-A-Loaf from 1997, this 12″ rips in hard and fast.

What I understood, Merzbow can be topic of another episode later on.
I think case was solved, and GX episode will probably return eventually.

For me, making this deal noise in general is most definitely good move. In long run, drama will be forgotten like any "twitter storm".

The new episode was fantastic, really looking forward to more in the future. I'm interested to see where they go and what guests they'll be having on.

Great news.  I've been looking forward to the return.  Maybe too much.  But I ain't gonna pretend I couldn't have listened to another 100 conversations about Merzbow etc.

I wonder if they"ll get Patrick O'Neill given how they're hinting at special guests around the Hospital showcase. New ep was great! Bit of a refresher, but glad to see them starting strong.

I breathed a huge sigh of relief when this dropped. <FINALLY> And was tickled by most of the suggestions (of future possibilities) offered throughout the cast. The goal is exceedingly ambitious, and I can't imagine a serious noise fan not rooting for these chaps.

Excited to hear what they have to say. Memorial was a formative cd as I got into noise. The way channels will hard-cut in the mix felt strangely bold and effective to me. I've noticed this hard L or R channel cutting on a number of Ramirez releases. If I remember, I've read some lukewarm reactions to the cd on this forum before. Never understood it.

Just couple days ago, I was watching Ramirez "Memorial" CD at my shelves, thinking should I listen to it. Due having recently finished reading Cosey Fanni Tutti -book, I decided to got for Throbbing Gristle. Seeing this new Noisextra episode, I decided to play "Memorial" and then listen the episode.

For me, the CD was never THE Ramirez release. It is something I got after several other items. It is good, but it did not hit with the same impact as some of earlier BLJ / RR stuff. Maybe it was partially the "soft" artwork (although fitting to concept), and fact it was one of the rare regular CD release of PdB label.

Listening material now, I could only conclude that it is very good CD. Especially I like the darkest material of the CD =  third track. Even more, combination of listening Noisextra guys talk about it, makes me somewhat uplifted feeling. Why? I guess just about every noisehead in the world usually ends up listening material that "nobody" gets. It is pretty much speculation whether anyone really gets what your own harsh noise works are trying to accomplish. YET, when you hear couple guys from other side of the world talk about one particular CD, and have almost identical conclusions, identical remarks about very very small details. From abrupt end of the CD to overall composition to nature of dark suffocating feedback drone... There is this sort of uplifting feeling that there are people who get it. Lets say, existence of true noiseheads as opposite for genre tourists those who have passing interest on phenomena.

Naturally that is the goal of SI forum as well. To promote and enable communication of those truly committed to this area of experimental sound arts.

So, all in all, excellent - and certainly recommended.

So far I do have almost every release these podcasts have dealt with, and I have listened almost every release they have covered. Lets see when I need to start making purchases...

Super excited to see that Noisextra is shaping up so nicely. Absolutely loved the Merzcast for as long as it lasted, but equally great that the podcast is now expanding beyond Merzbow, opening up such a world of possibilites. Really keen to see what will be discussed in the future (and definitely composing a wishlist in my head). Wonderful to see Hijokaidan covered, probably my favourite project ever, though I don't own everything and this happens to be one of the few things I don't have, haha. Somehow I wish they would have covered something like Modern or Romance - also because I feel there could have been so much discussion on Hijokaidan lore and history, especially maybe with a good guest - but nonetheless the discussion is interesting enough, and the way their sound is characterized is pretty accurate and made me feel, as always when I engage with Hijokaidan, that their classic records should appeal to so many young dogs, which maybe they do, but so little seems to be said of them and spoken about them, it always makes me wonder how much active attention and love they still receive. Fucking glorious!

Hijokaidan 10" episode was good again. I don't quite agree on few details - such as not hearing drums of vocals. Well.. Of course not like in rock'n'roll, but already from short clip at beginning, you can instantly hear Junko's trademark scream. Certainly veiled in the vast chaos of near white-noise, but it erupts well underneath it all.

I recall back in the early 90's when I concluded to one czech guy who I corresponded with, saying I'd like to put out Grunt 7", but I doubt there is audience for noise. He replied couple weeks later asking what the hell I'm talking about, there is many labels putting out noise releases - even CD's. He told there is this Japanese label who put out 50 CD's of noise. Of course that wasn't entirely accurate, since not all Alchemy CD's was noise, but it was 100% mindblowing idea in those days to see real noise CD. Not to mention when finally getting first Alchemy Records release in my hands, as said in Noisextra - they looked very different from usual underground CD.

I do not have fixed aesthetic taste how releases should look. I do appreciated crappy hand made things, cheap xeroxed cd covers, simple b&w high contrast graphics and so on.. but Alchemy records, and most Hijokaidan stuff looked like "real albums". Design was on top of the game compared to even best designs of mainstream music, while teenagers such as myself was struggling with letraset and typewriter, barely succeeding to make releases look tolerable.
