LR ”brother” 12”
Posh Isolation
Still very good. One sider vinyl with very minimal info. Meaning, no info at all. Without checking discogs, no recollection when this came out, but judging from material… sort of ”mid period LR” if that description makes sense!

Raymond Dijkstra "L'opus ch" LP
Everybody loves Raymond? This lp has really eerie soundscapes, mistreated piano, delay tricks, very simple but effective technology, resulting good things… My assumption is that this artists is appreciated by handful of guys who will grab ultra limited hand made items from him, but vast majority of people don't pay attention?

V/A Wenn All Bruder Schweigen" 10"
Kapellmeister records
compilation 10” that probably never makes it to anyones favorite lists, but is good for being specific era of euro industrial sound. Like how often you hear stuff like INADE is here? Bleak drum machine, speach on the back, very minimal electronics. Such a contrast to bombastic D.B track that came before it.
O.C. Track is really neat. it is quite unlike many of their tracks. Wouldn’t mind another O.C. Reissue collecting comp tracks.
Anenzephalia is bleak and very nice. Vocals quiet and buried below slow moving dark ”power electronics” soundscape. Also, compilation of Anenzephalia comp tracks would be more than welcome!
In recent times, I think G.O. has not submitted any masterworks to compilations. On this 10”, song ain’t dogday or WPF type of anthem, but good solid track with many of the known GO characteristics.
Con-Dom track been reissued on Shards… comp 2xCD, its painful high electronic sound with some choirs/hymn barely audible on the back.
While comp has no obvious hit songs, it presents the bleak and unique euro pe/industrial sound of this time and certainly good item to have.

Changes / Cavernous Condition split 10”
Neofolk split. Changes is one of my favorites on genre. CC here is utterly bizarre. Blunt acoustic guitar driven neofolk, but with… guttural almost death metal style growling! Damn… For lovers of eccentric bizarre music, this is quite a treat! It is sort of ballsy move to growl over neo folk like this, hehe…

IRM four studies for crucifixion 10”
Cold Meat
Its not very long since IRM was last on my turntable. If you want more early IRM sounding aggro vocals and harder sound, this 10” is good to go too. I like later works too, but I remember when IRM first started, it was pretty damn hard hitting new act that would be part of the shifting sound and production of ”power electronics” of early 00’s.
This is 20 years old release, but being Cold Meat release with fairly big print run and perhaps also 10” format, you can still get it cheap. Especially first track might have one of the most juicy and aggressive vocal sound of IRM releases.

T.G.V.T. "Paralysis" 10"
power & steel
It is very rare occasion I wonder how did the TGVT sound like. I do think about occasionally, as band has some unusual things. Lots of members, only few releases, name that always stick in my head since the 90’s.. I guess I have only this 10”, neither of the CD’s. I got also the LP of one of the members solo, Yoris Ondera on Tesco org. One of the Tesco titles that has been cheap for years and never seems to sell out, hah..
Anyways TGVT early 90’s German ritual industrial. At least some members lived in Mannheim and one of these guys ran studio responsible for mastering GO ”truth…” album in the 90’s. This is good mix of harder, almost death industrial type gloomy and grey soundscapes and almost tribal industrial elements. Always dark, though. Anyone has the TGVT CD’s How are they compared to 10”?

And right now, Bizarre Uproar - Mother DLP on Asrar. One of my favourite BU records. Nice to have it on vinyl too.
Really looking forward to new BU, hope it comes soon.

Hopefully the CD will arrive in the next couple days, but Fuck! - the new "Himukalt - A third fantasy" is amazing. I really like all her records, but she's just getting better and better. Couldn't wait, so I listened on Bandcamp.

Diesel Guitar:  Basically everything.  I think, besides when Solmania is in the zone, I generally am not that into "guitar noise", especially when it's clearly just guitar.  I hate improv moves, hate Derek Bailey and all that annoying dork playing an instrument in a wacky exploration crap.  I'd even say I think Jojo sucks, super dry annoying sharp guitar sound.  In the midst of a -Kaidan group effort he rules, but just that raw guitar sound alone is lame.  Alternately, just running a guitar through a wet chain can be too easy and obvious.  My disinterest is based as usual in my contempt for anything "i can do".  Masayuki Takayanagi, I really only LOVE when it's 90's effect drench stuff (though in his case, his skill is beyond mastery and I could never touch it... but even Otomo Yoshihide solo guitar is like... too dry).  Most of the DG stuff, all the solo / duo variations, really hits on target for me.  It's technically not really harsh, more like Texture Fields which is what I look for, tonal layers too.  A lot is really just kosmische ambient heavy guitar drone, like really mellowed down Keiji Haino instrumental sections.  It has all been hitting the spot lately, a presence, a haze with hidden light, a cloud dark shifting, it's guitar and effects, but they take it subtle and let it grow (though some tracks do just, STOP, which I always feel, shoulda let it go longer.)  Might sit down and do a per release review.

I would guess that 2006-8 are not generally voted to be among noteworthy years of Japanese noise? Usually when you check out shelves and check out discogs for more info, many times older stuff and tapes of Japanese noise tapes are all listed, often high priced and wanted. Late 00’s CDR’s is entirely different thing. Often items nobody has even listed to discogs, if it has been, only couple owners and never for sale.

Erehwon CDR
This Erehwon cdr titled in japanese I can't type here, is soundtrack for dance performance is pretty good, probably among their best, just cdr format makes it less collectible, less interesting. There are some perfect drones, neat spaceous metal junk screeching and noisy moments. Hour+ of stuff.

Molester ”Rostov-On-Donu” CDR
maybe one of his very first ones? Live show from 2008 on pro-CDR, but privately distributed. Some of his works is leaning more to ”power electronics” - perhaps most of all due the themes. This one, surely it can be filed under vile and disapproved interests, but musically pretty straight forward live harsh electronics. I remember meeting him in one of Japanese gigs, and man gave me bunch of items and some magazine as gift. Decade later, still appreciated!

I think now there could be good time for some label to try to do anthology of forgotten years of Japanese noise. Just to see if it would be appreciated like the oldies always get attention no matter if wouldn't be absolute best..

Hal Hutchinson self titled tape
2022 Der Bunker

Conceptually this piece isn’t too different from Hal’s recent solo work, but still is a stand out in his discography. It acts like a stripped down version of last year’s “Cold Industrial Experience”. A picture is painted in my mind while listening to this material: Tape loops that sound corroded and found in some burnt down abandoned warehouse in a grey wartorn land. Perhaps the sounds of the churning machines are samples from the workers long ago? The minimal design of the jcard - stamped with the :HH: symbol - then burnt on the edges (each copy varying to a certain degree) - offers a physical manifestation of what Hal might be trying to accomplish here. Timeless, bare bones, repetitive, and put through the ringer. This is noise for fanatics of raw sounding loops. Strongly recommended.

High recommendations for the new Hal tape. Funny enough, I listened to it for the first time last night and drafted a very similar review but you beat me to posting it. Hal is the tape loop and metal work master, always very excited for each new release. There are I think at least 3 distinctive pieces per side of the tape and each has a uniquely different sound while all remaining in a lo-fi crude tape work realm. Side B might have had a little more improvised "live" noise if I remember correctly. Will return to this regularly.

This and the somewhat recent Zylkon SS - The Demoralising Effects Of Noise tape are top notch. Each subtle tape drop on Der Dunker from the last couple of years has been quality.

There was also Hal Hutchinson new tape loop tape. Literally just a loop tape, so both sides last just few seconds, but you can obviously let it rotate as long as you wish. I think it was merely 10 copies made!

V/A Humanless Compilation CDR
Comp CDR supposedly in edition of 500! Spray painted home made cdr with silkscreened cover.. there’s some decent work…  Most of the bands are not noise here (Moss, Thralldom, Unearthly Tance, and so on), but Viodre and about 6 minutes long great Taint tracks makes this CDR keeper!

UTON "Taivaan Joka Kolossa" CDR,
Unlimited, but who knows how many was made as obviously it was taken away from sale. Originally Clay Records 2001 and then 2 years later more copies by Musically Incorrect Records (both operated by mr. Sick Seed).  I was told was planned to be reissued, but have not been. Finnish experimental noise and drone/handmade junk sounds. These days I like Uton sound vastly more than I did 20 years ago. It used to be tough to swallow the certain type aesthetics of Finn experimental, but learned to appreciate.

YAO 91404 D ”psychotherapy” CDR.
For my surprise, 20 years old Russian CDR release that still works just fine! This edition of 23 copies, makes me think like Metgumbnerbone type of acoustic cavernous acts, some sort of flute, junk, odd humming, feels like what noise would be without gear! I am not surprised that this project never gets mentioned anywhere, but besides these ultra limited cdr’s, there’s even one CD on Freak Animal…

Comp CD that came with Denshi Zatsuon #4 magazine, was also sold separately. This dates back to 2000. Koji Tano was alive, and he was key figure in keeping Denshi Zatsuon magazine going. There was issue or two still after he died, but man was too important figure and nobody could keep up that level of work…   Highlights on it are ripping Chop Shop track, very neat Kiyoshi Mizutani track and also Thurston Moore surprised how good he was and Veprisuicida of course always rules but this track is also found on his own release.

Jarboe- Walls (on Youtube)
Like it, from 1984 as far as I know, before she's joining Swans. Very minimal high pitched tones and lots of desperate screaming. If someone would reissue this, on whatever format, I'd gladly buy it.

good post, great recommendation, had not heard of this project, and has all the markers of something i would casually overlook were it not for a thoughtful review like this

V/A - Etat Bruit –Switzerland 5x7” (Scrotum Production – SP0408)

It’s surprising to me – as a Schimpfluch fanatic (to a point) – that this thing is still ‘around’ for ‘decent’ prices.  Five seven inches in a metal box limited to 200 copies, feels like it should be ‘gone’.  Front and back of the case have title / limitation / contents - stickers, clean design works well with the natural corrosion of the film canister - that all the contents perfectly fit within.  Has the ‘play loud’ instructions that often appear, in this case taking the form of “CAUTION: Play Only At Maximum Volume”.  Also tossed in are some earplugs (which even those appear to have custom printed art inside the mini container) and a strip of loose film (seems to be a few frames of some cleaning product).  All avant projects from Switzerland here.  Each record a different color (like candies), and each record having printed art labels and a perfectly cut circular insert, matching paper color.  As a physical object this is perfectly executed.

OP Rechts: Trio work here, the text references to D’Annunzio and the overall word choice suggests a very industrial – as in horrors of society approach.  Clearly recorded material with open space and room for each element.  An approach that sounds like people genuinely listening to each other (assuming it’s ‘performed’ vs ‘assembled’), almost sounds like a dirtier version of 00’s era Japanese Onkyo stuff due to the clarity, but the industrial lineage becomes apparent as the rhythmic and looping aspects fade in – all keeping a sort of uncomfortable decaying research lab sound.  Densities build and dynamics shift intelligently.  The B side opens with explosions, breaking glass, German speech, more extremely well considered texture layering and even sample loops are mixed where they fit with the other sounds instead of having a jarring disconnect in fidelity which can happen especially if you use a low sample rate, and again, has to be stressed, these guys are using their ears, the orchestral layering at the end is very well done.  I’m convinced, wish I had the LP now.

Maggot Bile: This is Roger Baumer, who has done work with Sudden Infant.  It opens with looping plunderphonic grit type stuff.  It’s fine, but I am immediately turned off when people are just messing with records.  I dropped the thread on Sudden Infant when I got burned with too many records of a guy messing with records.  Don’t play a voice fast unless you’re doing breakbeats, and you’re actually making a track in 1992.  It moves to some nice dense tonal movements, but if I have to jump through chipmunk voices, I won’t be back. Which is a bummer, because the gritty tone movement for a majority of the piece after the pointless record sampling - sounds cool.  The other side is menacing tones and pulsing with slightly more chaotic record plundering on top.  Good dynamics (or he’s just pulling from cool techno records), but carefree sampling rarely works for me – not interested in your thrift finds, but the B side is the winner.

Batchas: It’s possible Roger from Maggot Bile is here too.  Tasteful bass frequencies, spoken German on the A, and a buried spoken loop on the B – this is doing what I was hoping the Maggot Bile record would stick to, frequencies interacting minimally, gradual texture shifts, and reserved pacing – but no cute samples.  Kinda reminds me of one of those records you get where you’re like, ok it’s fine, but why press it to vinyl?  No real complaints, but as with essentially all things in life, I do wish there were flanged commando vocals yelling over everything .  

Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck: This is why I’m listening.  Took me a long time to figure out these tracks were here, used to be a R&G discog (pre discogs) I would reference that just had these track names and format and no further detail.  Who released this 7”?  Where is it?  Years later, oh, it’s in a box.  A side - Ich Sind Etwa 2 (I Are Approximate 2) – Everything you want.  Silence, imperfections and crackles of the canvas, weird moaning, bumping a piano, sudden abstract blasts, castrated phonemes and possessed gurgling blips, blasting split second pursuit whistles, syphilitic accordions going limp, chopping bursts of gagging.  A slap or two.  B side – Appellstück – Great track, more of a raw action sound (A side is that sort of – all your favorite Schimp sounds type tracks).  Aggressive chanting and stomping, some rattling, still cuts to stangled edits, back to a psycho stomping in a room, sections of lightbulb chair slaps, caning the possessed, paddling, impacts of dead biology on TBD flesh states.

Sudden Infant: Joke and Dave Phillips duo.  My favorite Sudden Infant is the more aggressively… almost power electronics moments, I like screaming and unhinged madness.  Here, we get, creepy childlike mumbling and contorted purple faced retching, shortwave, spoken voices, breaking glass, piercing feedback wafting, general uneasiness.  B side, unclear confined metallic space, impact action – a work of self-satisfaction, breathing, neighbors listening to classical, primitive generators in the wall, the meaningless rituals of the modern man’s broken needs.  Shuddering in a box.  I wonder when this was actually recorded

Closing: Filled with massive and fleeting regret after realizing I compromised inadvertent conceptual integrity, by removing and disposing of the ancient insect corpse that was dead on the plastic sleeve for the Runzelstirn record.  It was definitely NOT an intended element, but since there are actual R&G records with dead bugs intentionally featured as art elements, I regretted it moments after throwing the bug away, but as a brief universal gesture – a gift from the madness of reality, I appreciated it.  Update: Oh, found another desiccated larvae, on the Sudden Infant plastic sleeve, gonna swap sleeves (they are generic clear plastic) – thus returning balance to the universe.  The fact that I’m also now picking dried insect legs off my legs, seems right.


Sudden Infant / Brume / Tadpole  – Sperm + Egg 7” (Anomalous Records ‘Tadpole’ – TAD-001)
Whoever Tadpole is drags this down.  Literally worthless tracks tacked on the start of A (kid voice and Casio preset) and end of B (stupid baby noises – seriously you suck Tadpole – baby crying or kid voices are the worst).  I had this record before and ditched it when I liquidated all the Sudden Infant stuff I had that wasn’t doing what I wanted (I kept the Glass 7” and whatever had Rudolf), and the cover sucked.  This copy has a better handmade cover.  Recently had to re-buy it cus I like when Sudden Infant is kinda ‘power electronics’ Industrial (Radiorgasm Side B, “Death Syndrome” on Noise War, “Maxli” on Sensory Deprivation, this is even the same piece – diff recording - as on the Solothurn CD – well, this is 91, the CD is rec 93, and it sounds like the SAME vocals, so not sure, maybe they played this record live vs just doing the vocals… which is lame, sorry – backing tape of vocals when you could just use a microphone and recite your perv nonsense is really weak – and I’d love to be corrected that they just somehow performed EXACTLY the same voice), so had to get this cus it’s just him talking creeper sex talk – kinda like a dorky version of Sodality.  Pitched down spoken word (lyrics on the label) with a good noise blast at the end.  Would rule without the “Tadpole” bullshit.  Brume – he’s ok, I had tons of Brume stuff in highschool, wasted a lot of time with “French Industrial”, I kept picking stuff that wasn’t really what I was looking for (shoulda bought the Le Syndicat tapes….) – no way to tell back then though… But yeah, had like ALL the Brume OEC tapes, the Bandaged Hand stuff, lots of stuff, but so many had such contrast in styles – not in a good way, and too many “funny” moments – which is VERY hard to get right.  With limited funds and getting burnt with tons of DDAA and Brume stuff that sucked, had to give up, sell em and buy better stuff.  I never regret it.  This track, it’s just like juxtaposition cuts, weird sound effects and annoying voices.  Once you listen to enough French academic stuff from the 50’s – 70’s any of this ‘at home’ version of concrete from the 80s+  is not worthwhile.  He kinda does goofy PE here.
