Caroliner ‎– I'm Armed With Quarts Of Blood (1990)

>> Thursday, July 12, 2012


There are times when I'm asked to provide some sort of summarization of what "noise" truly is...I guess as concept or art form specifically. And that's one tough, controversial answer. I usually say noise is a kind of agenda that incorporates, among other things, performance art with sound and aggression. There are some noise bands, we can hopefully agree, that do make a better impression live than on record. Maybe all of them. Maybe none of them. Whether you think Caroliner is a band that might be better live, since the theatrics are pretty interesting, or whether you think they are a de-facto noise band are questions that have, once again, controversial answers. I'll provide my answer to the latter: Caroliner is a fascinating "noise" band whose album incorporates rock, folk, silliness and other abstractions to form some sort of redneck duck soup. The variation of sound and atmosphere these tracks create are both wonderful and terrifying in equal amounts. If not exactly pristine "noise" sound, then Caroliner at least encapsulates the spirit of cacophony. If you want blood...Caroliner's got in in quarts.

Borbetomagus - Experience The Magic (1993)

>> Tuesday, April 24, 2012


I love record store day, which was last Saturday for those who don't know. And it so happens that this particular store contains an incredible amount of 'experimental' music, from musique concrete vinyls to Raster Norton CDs. I happened to spy this album from one of my favorite jazz groups (yes, jazz) and bought it, as is the ritual of record store. This might be the first time I've made a purchase of music in person, so it's important. (At least to me) Moral of the story: embrace record stores, while they can still put up a fight, 'cause Borbetomagus could be right around the corner.

As for the music, well, it's a furious jazzy noise hell, which is a good thing. And 'cause it's been a while, and I luv y'all, I'm giving this mf'er in FLAC


For those who actually bothered reading this, I'll give you some incredibly awesome breaking news: Terror Noise Audio is mentioned in the upcoming Duke University Press ethnography book "Japanoise: The Cultural Feedback of Global Media Circulation" I happen to know the professor who worked on it, so I'll be posting news about it every now and then. Only a few more steps to total noise world domination!
