"Maurizio Bianchi's unreleased 2-track album entitled, 'Teknoise'. Originally recorded in August 1980 this album has never been released in any format and is an extremely rare artifact from Maurizio's collection. Two long tracks, 'Tek' and 'Noise', deliver that unique sound that M.B. has made his own. Primitive drum machines pulse over sinister analogue synths, that create an unsettling atmosphere, perhaps only the true Italian master of Industrial and Musique Concrete could ever create."

Mars are the sort of near-mythical band you only hear mentioned in hushed reverence by those in the know. They were an integral and catalytic piece of New York's primordial mid-late '80s No Wave soup and left a cruelly overlooked legacy of controlled fury and blunt emotion transcribed to a handful of releases. This LP 'Live At Irving Plaza' is a location recording captured on a prototype portable tape recorder by an early fan of theirs, Brian Eno, and documents, in remarkable fidelity, their penultimate show, dating August 4th, 1978. It's a raucous, rollicking performance, utterly comp… Read more

The first studio version of Deformed Worship was scrapped, and its songs re-recorded by the band on cassette 8-track in November 2012, before being mixed and mastered by Kris Lapke. Raspberry Bulbs defies the constraints of classification but is often mistakenly labelled as a black metal band. It is not a black metal band."

Russell Haswell puts a donk on it for Diagonal in a compelling, combustible and personalised '37 Minute Workout' of fractured noise and techno deconstructions. Working under a title nodding to both the album's physicality and riffing on Paul Morley's idea that the perfect album length is 37 minutes long, it's a typically uncompromising session cocking a contrary view of the dancefloor. Rhythmically, it's by far the most "structured" album in Haswell's solo catalogue, consolidating the freeform, improvised approach and brutalist, visceral timbres of previous releases with an app… Read more

Largely recorded at a 2004 concert at a Cambridge Massachusetts YMCA by Keith Fullerton Whitman, YMCA documents Licht's solo guitar set of the time -- a three-part structured improvisation that moves from mournful, layered sustained tones that sound more like a reed organ than a guitar, to a gently plucked middle section, to a final firestorm of loop processing that is a tour de force of "the cha… Read more

Playing buckets, spoons, pots, pans, toy guns, gardening tools and even the microphone that came with the toy version of Snake Mountain (as in Skeletor's lair), the young Skab (aka Travis Roberts) laid down wildly discordant improvisations about the joy of smashing neighbours' windows and the horror of radiation poisoning.
