MonoNeon-selfie quickie 2wooo & welcome to whatever the fyuck EP’s:

A young electric bass virtuoso from Memphis – extraordinary chops/hyper lumber.. the name? Dwayne Thomas Jr aka MonoNeon! dry roasting big batches of fissiparous Funk & fusoid Hip-Hop lampoon. Lashings of sumptuously nimble bass-slapping, without shame nor restraint. Majorly awed by Funkadelic, Michael (Fuckin’) Henderson & Prince (MonoNeon was one of the last musicians to collaborate with Prince before the fatal dose) – it has a very specialized retro mannerism & attention to phonetics (larders heaving with Herbie Hancock style synths from the 70’s era) Continue reading MonoNeon-selfie quickie 2wooo & welcome to whatever the fyuck EP’s:

Gasland part 2 ( Josh Fox documentary DVD):

Seminal! – in the absolute truest sense of the term. Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”, one of the greatest crimes of the 20th century, as well as one of it’s greatest conspiracies (still very much playing out). Engineered & pioneered by? yep! – USA (a spot of dejavu in cases of catastrophic new technology & its integration into either market or military appliance). This supreme two hours & five minutes documentary remains one of the most definitive pieces of media/information on the fracking catastrophe.

Shitnoise Bastards-this is a threat EP cassette:

Oh! A wonderful triple crack in the cranium here. Presumably a two-piece (I write this half-blind, with only the physical tape for details & no internet access) of garbage-spew trash-Noisecore with vicious hysterical Blurcore tendencies. It’s billed as “Shitnoise” (or at least the band’s name opts for this indication) but it’s too fierce & too well recorded (in a Tascam over trash way! still weeping-wound lo-fi scuzz, don’t worry). Continue reading Shitnoise Bastards-this is a threat EP cassette:

Dark Throne Is Dead-fukk Norway cassette:

The quaintest of all crude. 85 tracks (in less than eight & a half minutes) of tatty, drossed-out, trash, mishap lampoon. Garbage scuzz BM with an aluminum drum-machine on permanent blast-patrol & gibberish, indiscernible vocal blather. Funny. Endearing. Dumb as fuck. Very little information divulged & the classic ‘no contact’ (not ‘stated’ here but simply absent) statement. Continue reading Dark Throne Is Dead-fukk Norway cassette:

Facialmess/Nyctalops-split CD:

A crisp cuff round the cortex from two major Stentorians. Beginning with Facial Mess (that’s Kenny Sanderson, a British dude from Serpentis upon Anvix that fucked-off to Nippon in the 90’s to join the Japanoise joust), who roll forth three hulks of progressive metal-work antiphonics & quality electronics. Variation, space, frequency, post-session editing & what would appear to be no compulsion to simply churn out restrictively aggressive destruction (he has done enough of that) results in this extremely tired genres enlarged & reinvigorated horizon. Continue reading Facialmess/Nyctalops-split CD:

The Punishment Of Virtue-inside Afghanistan after the Taliban (Sarah Chayes):

“I wound up briefing the Twenty-fifth by the way of coincidence. No concerted effort was being made to educate the army about the radically new duties that had been thrust upon it. with $178 billion in defense authorizations in 2004, almost nothing was earmarked for the acquisition of knowledge about the place where the troops where the troops would be investing the next year of their lives—about its languages, its history or culture, about what was currently at stake there. None of the GIs I talked to out at the base in Kandahar had received such training.”    Continue reading The Punishment Of Virtue-inside Afghanistan after the Taliban (Sarah Chayes):

Karen Finley-the truth is hard to swallow LP:

Good grief! What do you know about Karen Finley? So my precision on the exact historical account will be straight scabrous, but Karen was (& may well still be) an arch nutty bitch from Chicago who took a penchant to shall we say “insalubrious” & histrionic performance art. Somewhere in the 70’s or 80’s she shifted to California before eventuating in New York. My reference is her records & not her performance art, which I have never witnessed nor studied. This particular emesis episode, the Truth is Hard to Swallow, is from 1987. Now, Karen really is a wing-nut! Her theme is basically stupid, hyper crude, ridiculously explicit, amateur, screamy, tattered & badly misshapen-rap styled hysteria, cobbled into strings of grossly swollen, tangential & thoroughly nonsensical Tourettes.

Swut Jerziz! –aka- Erst-while Antrum 20:

The largest fudge-center in the ‘though shalt not eat’ section (with added forbidden imprest)! The sacred sponge of cultist mana – Erst-While Antrum retches-out the latest edition Swut Jerziz! – With Praying For Oblivion, Kylie Minoise, Nyctalops projecting sticky stridulatory strop harangue & “Harshest of hectoring’s”, ritual-narcotic black-magus cyber-Noise Continue reading Swut Jerziz! –aka- Erst-while Antrum 20:
