Self-explanatory split c30 tape released on Phil Blankenship's stunning Troniks label in 2004.
Blackly cosmic drone/noise overlain with harsh feedback and unhinged vocal eruptions.
Josh Lay - Serotonin Haze
2007 cassette from Kentucky's Josh Lay, originally appearing on the fantastic Phage Tapes label in an edition of 64 copies. Go visit Phage Tapes' website and buy anything! You can't go wrong. Those guys know quality... but they also know "limited editions", so get 'em while you can.
Josh Lay - Flesh Kingdom
A classic early Haters tape, all crumbling static and prickly fuzz. Published by Harsh Reality Music in 1987.
The Haters - Rot
One of my favorite Dead Body Love tapes, this one came out in 1997 in an edition of 50 copies on Spite Tapes.
Dead Body Love - Volcano God
Single Sided LP, Conspiracy Records, 2006
Stephen O'Malley's project for noisy drone guitars.
And, to complete the circle...here's the LP released in 2008.
Radical left-wing power electronics from Providence, Rhode Island, USA, featuring Jeff Plummer (Immaculate: Grotesque) and vocalist Rob Hill. This is their first cassette, self-released by the band in 2006.
Shallow Waters - I
The radical politics of Noam Chomsky or Slavoj Zizek and the righteous left-wing rage of Crass or Ad Busters, as filtered through modern art-school-basement hardcore/power electronics. This is very punk noise, in the best way. Honestly, someone should take all five of these c10 tapes and make 'em into one nice LP with a gatefold sleeve of the collage art that's folded inside the little plastic cases. Ooh, and a fold-out poster too! Shallow Waters deserves treatment like that. But until that happens, my rip from a cassette stuck up on a blog will have to suffice.
Shallow Waters - II
The Providence duo's third self-released c10 cassette, from 2007.
Shallow Waters - III
The fourth c10 by Shallow Waters, self-released by the band in 2008.
Shallow Waters - IV
The last (?) Shallow Waters c10, from 2008.
Shallow Waters - V
A c20 full of filth and low-velocity sonic mud, published in an oversized cardboard box that might be Banned Production's least elegant package. Nice sounds, though, especially if you like really ugly noise.
Retract Your Balls, It's Smell & Quim...
Cassette from 1998, published in an edition of 50 copies by Spite Tapes.
Richard Ramirez - Spread 'Em
Ugly static by Italian necrophiliac Gabriele Giulliani. This 1997 cassette came out in an edition of 150 copies on Labyrinth Recordings, one of the great late-90's American noise labels.
Dead Body Love - Emetic
Seed Mouth's only CD, self-published in 1996, and boy does it have an appropriate title. This is the sound of sinking into a frigid ocean with no hope of rescue, surrounded by massive ice-cold analog glaciers... brrrrrr...
