YKSI "Liberté! Liberté!" CDR

xlent and tasty noise project from sir uton. as already heard on satatuhatta release here we get more of fuzzed up tornado storm avalanche, not so heavy, but flying high in upper middle range ... lots goin on and never resting. sounds somehow like 90's noise tape. as with all things hirvonen, there is an underlying cosmic meditation undertone to this... heavy meditation?! haha

when this dude sleeps at all is a mystery to me: magma tones records, uton works, paintings, zine, now this yksi project, contributing to ikuisuus records....

first and only corona skeptic noise release i've seen around

I don't want to get into politics at all but with all due respect to Sir Yksi and because I am French, unless he's been living in France for the last 5 years (and that wouldn't even be enough to understand where all those movements are coming from), I find the use of such samples for what he intended to convey rather inappropriate and/or simplistic because there's such a deeper underlying context behind all those demonstrations.

(...)I find the use of such samples for what he intended to convey rather inappropriate and/or simplistic because there's such a deeper underlying context behind all those demonstrations.

I wonder is there inappropriate in noise/industrial, that lives largely on idea of recontextualizing? I do not know what he intended to convey, as I don't think it is utterly clear in release? One can pick up any subject matter noise and conclude that those sounds are not used in line of where and how and why they originally appeared?

It is curious, though, that for example French demonstrations, very very very rarely make it to news in Finland. I do not know how it is in other countries, but it is curious change of media, that while in past tabloid had the daily poster of major headlines. Unless it is gold medal in olympics, it is likely that the "news headlines" of both daily papers of Finland with be 5 days a week, in style of "5 symptoms to notice upcoming health problem". No joke. There was study about journalists of current times, and excluding couple specialists, most journalists know only Finnish, Swedish and English language. Most of them have no ability to follow French, Germany etc happenings, unless there is international coverage on it. It is observed to change nature of news that we get. It is no wonder, how over here, we get more news about british royal family, and US royal family (K.West and such) than anything relevant.

Liberte?! what it could be about? Probably about anything when put into context of noise. Even if sound is from moment X, it could simply refer moment Y, where enough is enough, and you revolt against whatever seems to be constrainment. This is not even political discussion nor related to covid restrictions.

Genocide Organ – Under - Kontrakt LP - Tesco Org, 2011 - it's been a while since I've listened to this. I can remember feeling somehow vaguely disappointed when I got when it was first released. But listening now, I have no fault to find. There's a nice balance between slightly more aggro tracks and slightly less and nothing goes on too long so it's an easy listen for a single sitting. There are some real highlights like "Forever Whore", "The Lord Is My Light", and "We Are Here to Have a Good Time", but nothing compares to b-side opener "I'm With You All Days". That one just fucking rips. Harsh synths combined with looped screaming samples. Yes please!

Encephalophonic – Regressed Progress CD - Audio Dissection, 2013 - the Encephalophonic album I reach for the most and also the one that makes me feel the worse. Very similar vibes to Taint, but with a harsh noise attack instead of Keith's scrap-noise-p.e.

I think it's interesting, sure. It's not preachy or corny like most covid sceptic music, just noise with a somewhat controversial (is it even controversial?) message. There's plenty of people who actually believe that shit, so why wouldn't there be someone making noise with that theme? Given how many weirdos there are in noise, I'm surprised he's the only one I've come across.

And to everyone wondering, it's very much about antivaxx / covid scepticism. Artist himself said as much when he posted the release on an FB group and some people demanded it be removed, hah. Cue 500 posts of fighting about it.

I suppose the 500 message was slightly different topic? More about if bands, artists and releases connected to "questionable values" can be accepted in that FB group of Finnish experimental music. It seemed less about YKSI, more about if anything published by Freak Animal can be allowed to be promoted or discussed? I am not member there, nor I see any point joining yet another group where 1000 people are plagued by apathy and self promotion. Lazy bandcamp links, zero reactions, discussion happening utterly rarely. It is of course flattering, yet I find it odd if hundreds and hundreds of people have nothing to discuss, unless yours truly is mentioned?

I have often used SI forum as example, how it requires almost zero moderation. People can behave, people can produce material that is interesting, reviews, discussions, recommendations and so on. Almost everywhere else, you'll see all sorts of bickering. When seeing someone criticize this forum for being some brutes discussing about stuff they like, you often tend to find people who are always the instigators of drama on other platforms, hehe...

For me, theme of YKSI release is not very appealing because it is so "today". But I can see dozens of interesting questions what it could provoke, that can get interesting. Lets say, often seen notion that covid skeptics should not get treated because they cause the problem. That government control is absolutely needed and wanted, for sake of upstanding citizen, these lowlives should be removed from public life etc. One could replace the covid sceptic with word junkies or perhaps even a bit more touchy group, and see if theme of release is suddenly a bit more interesting for anyone to ponder how one would approach mentioned things. For sake of well-being of nations, I guess slightly more advanced eugenics program may find surprisingly large support at some point? If one noise cdr ltd 20 copies could turn Finnish experimental music social media group into "chaos", it tells a lot about resilience to "information".

But well, its partially off topic:

Playing now MERZBOW "Hybrid Noisebloom" 2xLP. Brilliant, more fuller wooooossh of harsh noise bubble bath with tons of electric bubbles tickling your ears. If you never had the CD, like myself, this vinyl reissue is absolutely great!

Ordered the David Gilden - Texas Chainsaw Dopefiend CD reissue from SAP in Sweden and it arrived pretty fast. Very happy to add this classic to my collection. Just listened to it in my car. Don't know if it was remastered for this cd and can't compare it to the original tape version but the sound on this is really good. Could've used a bit more bass but that's maybe because of my cheap speakers in my car. Takes a few minutes before it get's going but then it's just a total noise storm. Nice mix of frequencies and technics. Sometimes crude and primitive, sometimes brutal (esp. when the vocals kick in on the first track) and nice sampling on the 2nd track. I like how the different pieces are mixed together into 2 long tracks. Has enough diversity and a nice flow throughout the whole album.

Tourette - Proximité du Murmure 2016
Tourette - Jardin du sommeil 2013

I've been sleeping. I'm 99.5% sure Tourette is new to me.  It's a good thing to find great rewards like this that were missed. The variation, dynamics, skills and craftsmanship, and production levels remind me Christian Renou/Brume.  Electro-acoustic sensibilities through the hybrid lens of Dave Phillips and a crunchy Merzbow.  Right up my alley.

Yes, saw Tourette live once and he blew me away. Been following his output since and he always delivers. Échancré from last year was my favoriet noise album from 2021.

THE NEW BOYFRIENDS - The Fourth Season CD (White Centipede Noise, 2021)
The past two years I’ve been missing out on alot of stuff, but I’ve still kept an eye on all the newer names floating around. Given the praise for the Finnish TNB, I’ve naturally been curious, so when the ever reliable WCN released this disc last year I finally opened my wallet. As I haven’t heard any of the three cassettes and couldn’t remember what any reviews said, I had no expectations. Yikes! Turns out the band nane tribute is there for a reason. It reeks to far off lands of early The Blockaders, the debut and their Live At Morden Tower in particular. The air and detail of Changez…, and the spiky dangerous volume of the live album. But the overall expression of The Boyfriends is different. A merrier bare-chested joy-of-noise attitude rather than fin de siecle nihilism (although an outsider could claim this Cosmo-Kramer-on-roller-skates-at-K-Rauta type of noise is a nihilistic recreation in a way). The Boyfriends haven’t set out to overthrow culture (I think…), and seem to draw more energy from tractor pulling than futurism. Add to that the unruly electric currents, courtesy of Mr Mogao (just guessing here), swimming about in the acoustic havoc, plus all the spontaneous joyous shouts and howls, and you have something closer to a Finnish Incapacitants, with a recipe of their own. Made my day, this album, and I curse myself for missing out on those three cassettes!

Glad to hear you liked it!

Guessed right :) All the acoustic racket is made live by us two and the pedal noises were added later in the same evening.

That is one excellent review! And I am sure the album lives up to it 100%, anxiously waiting for mine!

Lettera 22 - ”True Form” LP

While relocating my noise etc vinyls I took this in my hands and had no recollection of its contents. Decomposed, yet has finesse. Later a-side developes into harsher noise, pulsating synth sounds. B-side starts with a lot harsher material, then goes back to tape loops, tingy metal scraping, back n forth swoowing sounds. Tasty deep tones undernearth the rubble, transfering to screechy and nicely painful metal scraping. Very good LP, will give it a lot more spins from now on!

I suppose the 500 message was slightly different topic? More about if bands, artists and releases connected to "questionable values" can be accepted in that FB group of Finnish experimental music. It seemed less about YKSI, more about if anything published by Freak Animal can be allowed to be promoted or discussed? I am not member there, nor I see any point joining yet another group where 1000 people are plagued by apathy and self promotion. Lazy bandcamp links, zero reactions, discussion happening utterly rarely. It is of course flattering, yet I find it odd if hundreds and hundreds of people have nothing to discuss, unless yours truly is mentioned?

You're right, it started as an offshoot of this discussion (which I think was absurd for an experimental group to shut out experimental music based on supposed political beliefs of the artists. Are we only allowed to experiment on concepts or ideas that are safe or nice? Or are only people with safe and nice views allowed to make experimental music? And listening to what's mostly posted there, it falls really short of the quality of every single FA release), but quickly got it's own thread which did get many comments. 500 was an exaggaration, we're talking dozens of comments. It all concluded in a few unwarranted bans and removing of said artist from the moderating team, but no ban on corona sceptic noise, hah. All good fun to watch, I guess if you like to watch grown ups behave like little children.

For me, theme of YKSI release is not very appealing because it is so "today". But I can see dozens of interesting questions what it could provoke, that can get interesting. Lets say, often seen notion that covid skeptics should not get treated because they cause the problem. That government control is absolutely needed and wanted, for sake of upstanding citizen, these lowlives should be removed from public life etc. One could replace the covid sceptic with word junkies or perhaps even a bit more touchy group, and see if theme of release is suddenly a bit more interesting for anyone to ponder how one would approach mentioned things. For sake of well-being of nations, I guess slightly more advanced eugenics program may find surprisingly large support at some point? If one noise cdr ltd 20 copies could turn Finnish experimental music social media group into "chaos", it tells a lot about resilience to "information".

I find it tiresome because it's been everywhere for the past few years, but also quite intriguing as a concept. Much like cults that have been a basic concept for noise this whole corona scepticism as well as maga-shit are both so far removed from reality that they should provide plenty of inspirational material for years to come. And I hope for some truly full blown, odd shit, not just tiresome racism or kind of timid insinuation of a NWO or a jewish conspiracy.
