I didn't know that the intent of the thread was to be selective about what constitutes Australian noise. I also do not think that quoting "the dude" is offending anybody or starting shit - I also forgot that this is (apparently) serious business. I just felt that it would be a good idea to mention Mazurka in the context of this conversation since it was - after all - a label out of Australia. Von Einem had been mentioned before - there's a release by Mr. Groves on the imprint among a lot of other great material by artists from all over...

Four of my projects were released on the label in the end - Von Einem, Dead Boomers, Dick Threats, and Red Wine and Sugar. Outside of the internationally based projects on the label, Jarrod released an abundance of diverse Australian action with a cohesive overarching character including Lucid Castration/Baader, Oranj Punjabi, Tailings, Teen Ax, Mitchell Brennan, Cock Safari, Enak, Cooper Bowman/Roman Nails/Kneeling Knave, Muura, Clinton Green & Andrew McIntosh, xNoBBQx, Smash Tennis, Dotåbåtå, and many others. As a resource documenting certain strains of activity over the last five years I think it's a very valid inclusion here.  I'm aware not everyone on this board had positive interactions with the label, but from my standpoint the discography is interesting, gave me several lines on things to follow up on, and possessed a consistent visual character. It kind of shit me that its importance to sections of the local community may have been missed internationally at the time. There were a couple of bullshit dismissive reviews in Fördämning that reduced it to some Hospital Productions knock off - a pretty ignorant assessment from someone whose opinion I've come to value little over time.

I never had any bad dealings with Mazurka, but that was just me buying the stuff. He released some real gems (yours included) and I particularly liked the presentation / aesthetic.

Recently i got the Armour Group Purge tape on Future Archaic. The channel levels are abit uneven, on the A side the right channel is significantly lower and on the B side it's reversed (left channel is lower). The quiet channel is not totally dead but it's bad enough that it take potential power away from the music. Power that i feel this tape need. Anyone else have this tape with the same problem? How's the sound on vinyl, does it also suffer from this?

No. Vinyl was mastered by James Plotkin and does not suffer the issues of Future Archaic's cassette duplication.

That's great! I was able to listen to it abit louder yesterday which made the issue a little less prominent.

There are heaps of good noise acts playing in Sydney right now.

Many slowly morphing from the punk scene, its common now to see a punk gig with a noise act playing

Sydney also played host to the Inner West Noise Fest in feb which saw 16 experimental/noise acts all on the same bill.

Government Alpha, Black leather Jesus, and Torturing Nurse have all done split releases with Sydney acts.

Soon a new worldwide LP comp is coming out on a Sydney label with THE HATERS, TORTURING NURSE, MILAT (SYDNEY) , BESPOKE DECAY (MELBOURNE) DYSTERHET (SYDNEY)

There is a new Australian/Indonesian noise comp out now too

Check out these Australian noise acts

MILAT  the most brutal noise act out of Sydney
DYSTERHET harsh noise from Sydney
SCAB mysterious recording project from inner city of Sydney
DEATHSAW 2 homeless persons and their case workers..harsh junk noise
BESPOKE DECAY  analog junk noise filth from Melbourne
OOILOU  female fronted chaotic clarinet noise
BASS TRAITOR  two bass players and laters of power electronics

Something tells me one wouldn't need to say his project is the most brutal one. If it was, then people would just know about it...  So instead it seems it's more like the most hyped one.

Some links would have been appreciated, as Google wasn't very helpful for those band/project names.

Bespoke Decay sound good on their Bandcamp page; nice thick, gritty sound on "Meat is Gross".

Bass Traitor more like run-of-the-mill doomdrone kind of stuff, not my bag.

I'm just pleased to see more projects coming up from around here.

Gotta say, hella funny what a bunch of fakers Armour Group turned out to be. Between Harriet being a narcissistic psychopath (i.e. smashing Luke Holland's synth, driving her car into the back of his, the list goes on) and Luke Holland bootlegging Agonal Lust cassettes to support a drug habit, it looks like they burned out real quick.

Frankly that’s about the best byline for a noise band you could write in 2019

“She smashed her car into his and destroyed his synth! He’s bootlegging tapes to support a drug habit! Limited to 100 copies with rose tinted cassette shells and download card”

Not to mention that he has actually been ripping people off occasionally by not sending out orders and breaking contact. He got me for $80.

Might be an opportunity to mention my label Index Clean, though as a lurker around here I'm increasingly aware it may be of only peripheral interest. Not really three-hole balaclava territory, you know? I'm based in Melbourne, though I've started releasing material from O/S folk also. Did a recent batch of 3LPs and a compact disc. Samples and other information can be found here. I've learned through this process that attempting to sell vinyl to people overseas from Australia is a fraught proposition at best in 2019 - regardless I'll be continuing to release material (albeit on more postage-friendly formats) in the future.

Bespoke Decay is worth keeping an eye on, improving with every release. His collage works are quite good, too.

Recently discovered your label via the Von Einem discography CD set. I'll check out the rest.
