Nojz Fest 2009 (Slovenia)

>> Wednesday, April 22, 2009

And for my last post in this rather active day I present you a Noise Fest that occurred in Slovenia not so long ago.

I also played there. :O

Oh how I shat bricks at the borders because I really had no idea how would I explain why exactly I'm carrying 20 kilos of distortion pedals and 4 meters of cables. Lucky for us the people at the border did not even check our bags har har.

The fest lasted for two days. The first one was reserved for home bands and projects and the second day was reserved for us, foreign dogs. Sadly due to my obligations I was not able to come the first days so I have no idea how it was but I'll provide the links of all the bands at the end of this post.

Asocial as usual me and Zmaj were just silent most of the time but we managed to have some interesting talks with some great people. We also got free drinks and Zmaj got drunk yarrr. And we got lost a bit in Ljubljana haha.

Anyway we recorded most of the show so you guys can check it out. The quality is not that great but it's fine; for a noise show anyway haha. I did some (poor) editing and also added some footage I took while we were in the train and something that was spinning. IT WAS SPINING SO I JUST HAD TO RECORD IT. Also the fog when we were going was fucking amazing.



Oh and I had a pikachu hat while I played.

Consumer Electronics - Public Attack 3

Consumer Electronics was a power electronics project of Philip Best before he joined Whitehouse. This one of his older materials from 1982 recorded live at Nailsea School, 21.10.82. He left Whitehouse recently (or not so recently, but oh well) so I think he returned to this project because he released an album in 2007.

Tracklist:

A1 Fellatio (5:54)
A2 Pricktease (6:13)
A3 Animals (3:35)
A4 Fuck The I.R.A. (1:20)
A5 Rubbersex (5:39)
A6 Vibro (1:49)
A7 Murman (6:55)

Sarutra's Music Label

Sarutra's Music is a small DIY label from Belgium. They are not restricted to a certain type of music so if it's good they will release it. I got three of their releases and I must say they are all great in their own way. All files are on megaupload. And they are:

Dotåbåtå - Cloudburst



This album is one of the best thing I've heard this year. It's soothing and beautiful. It has drone-like clean guitar recorded during heavy wind and rain (which is heard during the tracks).

And it is really good. I usually do not accept releases that are more on the music side but this one deserves the praise it gets around the web. Be sure to check this one out if you like drone. The front cover is horrible though. :|

Tracklist:

01. Rain I (11:44)
02. Rain II (16:54)
03. Rain III (14:27

___dREàgänN|||||| - Eviltricity


This is a mix between harsh digital noise and ambient. Although everything you hear is guitar, it is manipulated in such a (digital) way that for most parts you wouldn't be able to recognize it. Most albums he releases have som sort of story to them, as he, as an artist, portrays a ronin/muse from another dimension, giving everything a fantastic spin.

The cavern of impending DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM. As tasty as it sounds this one spouts all kind of guitar generated noise. Since the guitar is the only source (except in the last track) it can get a little reppetive but it's still enjoyable.

Tracklist:

01. Cavern Of Impending Doom (16:07)
02. Eviltricirangers (9:01)
03. Electrammer And Friend (1:42)
04. The Sacred Chalice Which Holds The Mighty Screwdriver (15:35)

SpeakingDeaf - Derailed


A 3" album, containing 14 short tracks, all harsh analogue noise, 1 recording, no usage of multiple layers. Almost feels like what punk is supposed to be these days, exhausting, painfully and hard.

And it sure is painfull but in a good way!

Tracks are untitled so I won't write the whole thing down.

Two pink wallz of noise, glittering soft-core litanies in red&white on black; twinkling digital destruction from Italy's top loli-noise dis-artist VS. unrelenting and monochromatic noise massif from UK finest wallbuilder. With pink schoolgirls postcard included.

Tasty harsh noise wall type of things. Starts calm and progresses further into chaos known as wall noise (weird sounds included).

Lackthrow - The Principles of Defeat

One of the latest releases from our long time friend Lacthrow. The whole album is just one track which is an remastered and lightly remixed version of the live cd 'the principles of defeat' from the *vocal era* in 2001, edited & mixed in a different track order as just one long continuous track this time around. Lots of microphony so if you don't enjoy such things you best avoid this release. Overall it's quite good. It lasts for about an hour or so.

Czech Nymphs - 2

If you enjoy C.C.C.C. you'll most likely enjoy this as well. Pretty much unknown band from Czech Republic (I guess?). There are just two long tracks and much like the C.C.C.C. the sound is very "stretched out" with lots of phasing (in second track) and stuff like that. Quite good.

Tracklist:

A1 Electronic Music Composition 1st November 2006 (18:28)
B1 Electronic Music Composition 1st November 2006 (19:42)

VAAAM 666 - Invocation

This is "Invocation", the new free download from VAAAM 666, a minimalist drone/noise creator from the Netherlands. It consists of samples recorded with a headset and processed with a lot of effects, thus creating a pitch black atmosphere.

Objectively looking this is classic minimalistic dark ambient. Not much progression but the atmosphere compensates it. Cute little net promo. <3 Tracklist: 1. Hymn (2:19) 2. Aeternae Gloriae Sathanas (2:47) 3. Pitch Black (3:28) 4. Uranium (1:39) 5. Rotting For Eternity (2:00) 6. Invocation (1:55)

God Pussy / Whorifik - Agonia da Perda de Percepção Split

>> Monday, April 20, 2009


Oh my, trains. Steam trains that is!

This is a little taste of noise from Brazil. Both are digital noise so if you are into just analogue things you won't like this (I think). Both projects are harsh noise with Whorifik being the harsher end.

Tracklist:

1. God Pussy - Manifesto Futurista (2:18)
2. God Pussy - Oposto Social (10:00)
3. Whorifik - Insensibilidade (9:17)

Animal Writes - Make Them Suffer

>> Sunday, April 12, 2009


Animal Writes loves kittens, apparently. You should see the band's fabulous MySpace page: dancing kittens, cartoon kittens, and plenty of just plain ol' kittens. But one forgets kittens pretty damn fast in the local trio's presence (one that includes local noise touchstone James Squeaky). A cold, industrial sonic refuse of feedback squalls, scraping and screeching electronics knotted up in a schematic of a post-kitten apocalypse (allergic or not, that's still an ugly world). Sometimes it makes conventional sense (there's some ancient, tripped out Butthole Surfers trapped in this machine) with ragged stabs at rhythm, recognizable guitars and a human voice -- but mainly it shuffles and jerks its way through a junkyard scene of electrical perversion.

licht-ung - kristall

>> Monday, April 6, 2009



[Germany / 2007 / Drone Records / lim.300]


"The two pieces on "kristall" seem to be based mainly on feedback- and metal or glass sounds that are carefully put together for a queer-sounding trip. Side A ("Listen to the music playing in your head") consists of humming, growling drones, low siren-like sounds and high-frequency feedbacks, powerful and absorbing and very abstract, while never turning into sheer noise. Side B (with the odd title "Heute war ich bei den weißen Elefantens") delivers a crystal-clear noise chant and metallic overtones processed with obscure effects."

Tracklist:
1. "Listen To The Music Playing In Your Head" (7:12)
2. Heute War Ich Bei Den Weißen Elefantens (7:53)
