Diononesiste interview – (hyper obscure & fiercely accomplished subterranean Extreme Black Metal-Death-Grind-Noise from Italy):

Some years back, whilst compiling the payload of Esrt-while Antrum edition 11, I ended-up conscripting an extremely obscure & opaque harsh noise/power electronics entity from Italy by the name of Pale Sister. At some stage in the e-exchange with the taciturn eccentric, a slew of links to additional projects  by the same practitioner were revealed. I ended up confronting the recording Inclavatus by a one-man band dubbed Diononesiste. Very quickly, the album asserted it’s exceptionalism, perhaps most notably for me by it’s extraordinary drumming. The musicianship & marked-effort really stood-out, yet the whole thing was delivered under a rind of sordidly lofi, raw, bunker & ultra-necro construct/finish that was almost contradictory to the virtuosity & diligence at work.

The Verboden Boys (Belfast Chapter)-band from reality & Unseens

So this group have a badly bent/majorly skewed/acutely kinked set-up/member ratio that stages them apart from the first foot through the stain-glass…I forget it off-the-cuff but will retrieve it from the label notes by the end of the review. Continue reading The Verboden Boys (Belfast Chapter)-band from reality & Unseens

The Riot Club-film:

Toffs on the rampage. Based on the play ‘Posh’ by Laura Wade, that I believe is staged (at least in sections) on real life events concerning the Bullingdon Club (renamed here as the Riot Club). Drama & dramatization aside, this is a very’ very important subject that rarely undergoes public attention. The Bullingdon Club is of course a ‘gang’ of Etonians as a semi-secret society that celebrate destructive, excessive, class-based criminality & chronic decadence. this included Boris Johnson, David Cameron & George Osbourne, who are depicted “semi-covertly (wink-wink) in major rolls within the film.

Kikanju Baku-Luke Stewart-Chris Pitsiokos, Concussion Projectile trio, “the Serpent Devouring the Banker” & additional ordinance:

(MP3 EP zip downloadable at the bottom of article) –

Spontaneity, vim & adventurism. Now that’s a good start. Ethnicity Against the Error (record label run by yours unruly) in conjunction with Gosh Glut Godatsu Disruptions (some new shit I coined to rend London a new set of blush-lapels unt further fervency) induced a fresh offensive by slap-dash/flash-mob/blink-of-eye/whim-whack with two of the finest young up-starts from over the pond – New Yorx youngsta’ flamebellower Chris Pitsiokos (saxophone, electronics, percussion) & DC embedded bass-sentinel Luke Stewart (electric bass, stand-up bass, electronics, percussion) & me – Baku-Blacclist the heterodox hierophant (drums, bass/cello, lutes).

Hiroshima-John Hersey:

Well worth remembering. Hiroshima. August 6th, 1945. The USA becomes the first (& still only) country to use a nuclear weapon against a civilian populace (it’s not like you can choose who you vaporize with these things). This very important short book (98 pages) was penned by John Hersey (appearing at first in the New Yorker in 1946), following six victims accounts of the bombing & the immediate aftermath that ensued. It’s a particularly poignant read now, considering the perilous idiocy, doom baying & extinctionocidal misrule being raced forward from the Chump administration & the Blight House. Continue reading Hiroshima-John Hersey:

Rodenticide-s/t LP:

Oh wonderful! No! Truly! Sophisticated garbage core, prose in putrefaction. sounds like Shitnoise come cruddy Noisecore with improvised Jazz conjunction (blasty, random, tangential drums from Chris Pitsiokos), bad Albert Ayler antiphonics (cheap reads abuse from Isaiah Richardson ) & scratty ill-incongruence discord on guitar & bass courtesy of a Mr. Richard Lenz (reminiscent of Sharrock shred in some instances). Insalubrious, unpalatable, perturbed, unstable, badly besmirched. Continue reading Rodenticide-s/t LP:

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.
