GRMMSK – cyaan go back (unfrei, 2013) from grm on Vimeo.

“This is another doomdub-resurrection ov the still undead punk genre. similar to the evolution ov zombie’s mobility in movies these days, on the collaboration ‘müllGRMM TÜTEsk’ you’ll find not only slow motion crawling and staggering, but also rather aggressive and hectic attacks. that’s when they’ve spotted you! feel the sting ov this toothed-up VERSIONS of the tracks from the 3rd EP by berlin’s MÜLLTÜTE.”

There is some X-Rated Live Screenprinting Video filth for you to watch here.

Available from Rough Trade, Praxis in Berlin and a bunch of other places.

New releases on Libertatia Overseas Trading

Degenerate Waves are a new act and their debut features “Lo-fi sinewave abuse, limited edition of 50 copies” with some sound sourced from DSEI 2013 arms trade expo apparently! Another great quality (but lo-fi, naturally) release from L.O.T.

There is also a forthcoming Degenerate Waves split CD with Libbe Matz Gang. To get a copy you need to complete a slightly unnerving questionnaire! I really like the idea of having to go through arcane processes to get hold of music in the current era of everything being available. So I’ve completed my questionnaire and await the results…

Turbulent Times issue 10

Is nearing completion, but don’t hold your breath. Some copies of issue 9 are still available from me.

Nomex interview for Datacide

Nomex Cassette Cover 2011

Introduction to the piece:

Nomex should need no introduction to Datacide readers, but here goes anyway. One of the organisers of the seminal “Dead by Dawn” parties held in the mid nineties at Brixton’s 121 Centre, Nomex contributed visuals, abstract/harsh performances and much more besides.

His releases on his own Adverse label have included everything from vinyl abuse to the sounds of bones in the Paris catacombs. The Nomex discography also includes output on Praxis, Cavage, and Reverse amongst others. Despite performing across the globe (from Teknivals to art galleries) he is still a purposely-obscure figure to most. What follows is the only print interview I am aware of.

Noise In Opposition Volume 2

noiseopp2

Latest installment of this series of great anti-fascist noise/electronica/weird compilations.

16 acts have contributed tracks this time, including April Larson, Laica, elizabeth Veldon, dsic, stapperton and GRMMSK.

As GRMMSK has said “some of the people/projects and their beliefs, NiO is opposed to, still haven’t fully understood that their ‘rebellious’ pose isn’t actually a statement against the status quo, but a sad verification of how numb and distorted the senses for something i would call freedom can be.”

Free/pay whatever download at Bandcamp / archive.org

Datacide zine London launch event

The 13th issue of Datacide, the international magazine for noise and politics, is out this week. As well as a conference and release party in Berlin this weekend, there will be a launch event on Sunday 20th October 2013 in London, 7 pm to 10 pm.

The event will take place at Vinyl (4 Tanners Hill, SE8 4PJ) the new record shop/cafe/gallery in Deptford.

It will feature talks from Datacide contributors, including Neil Transpontine looking back on the movement against the ‘anti-rave’ Criminal Justice Act, and Christoph Fringeli on Datacide magazine. Further details to be announced.

Sunday nights sounds courtesy of DJ Controlled Weirdness, and there will be a bar.

(I have an article in the magazine and will probably get some copies to sell/trade/blag. It will also be available at the London Anarchist Bookfair the previous day. But come to the launch event if you can, it will be good).

Noise In Opposition compilation

webflyer-550x150

Fully supporting this new initiative…

Noise In Opposition is a compilation of 24 artists from across the globe opposed to fascism, misogyny and prejudice. NiO totals nearly 3 hours of music across 31 tracks by people including Hacker Farm, Libbe Matz Gang, Elizabeth Veldon and The Implicit Order.

Check http://noiseopposition.wordpress.com/ for the full background and the rabble rousing manifesto.

Apparently the concept has proved so popular that a Part Two looks very likely a few days after the launch.

A NOISY DELIVERY: A FILM BY GX JUPITTER-LARSEN

A NOISY DELIVERY is the kind of thing that happens when people go to the post office for philosophy instead of postage.

Shot around the world, A Noisy Delivery is the first feature length movie by Hollywood based artist/writer/filmmaker GX Jupitter-Larsen.

CAST

  • Tim Bennett-Huxtable (“Jehovah’s Badass”, “Canoga Park”, “Melrose Place”)
  • Jessica King (The Haters)
  • Dave Phillips (Schimpfluch-Gruppe)
  • AMK (Banned Production)
  • Rudolf Eb.er (Runzelstirn & Gurgelstøck, Schimpfluch-Gruppe)
  • Joke Lanz – (Sudden Infant, Schimpfluch Gruppe)
  • Mike Dando (Con-Dom)
  • Christopher Dennis (The Hollywood Superman, “Confessions of a Superhero”)
  • Edward J. Giles (+DOG+)
  • Geoff Brandin (Fin, Catorce Index)
  • Sergio Messina (RadioGladio, Soslo, “Real Sex, Alt porn is the new Rock’n’roll”)

DIRECTOR

GX Jupitter-Larsen is an artist, based in Hollywood, California, who’s been active in a number of underground art scenes since the late 1970s including punk rock, mail art, cassette culture, the noise music scene, and zine culture. He is best known as the founder of the noise act The Haters, who’ve performed all over the world, and appear on over 300 CD & record releases.

Underlying all of Jupitter-Larsen’s work is a peculiar mix of aesthetic and conceptual obsessions, particularly entropy and decay, professional wrestling, and a self-created lexicon consisting mainly of personalized units of measurement such as polywave, the totimorphous, and the xylowave.

Shot around the world, from Hollywood to Switzerland to the Arctic circle in Norway, A Noisy Delivery has been six years in the making.

As writer & director, A Noisy Delivery is GX’s latest in a long line of film and video projects. In a piece entitled Blank Banner, during the 1980s, GX submitted a silent blank video tape to over forty video festivals. It was screened in nine. GX’s 1994 vampire romp Holes On The Neck still enjoys a passionate cult following to this day. His next cinema exploit is said to be on the theme of mad-scientists who use public transport.

WITCHESPROMO5

WITCHES: THE PSYCHOTRONIC VOODOO SOUND OF HACKER FARM & LIBBE MATZ GANG

WITCHES is an audio-visual collaboration between cult lo-fi electronics groups Hacker Farm and Libbe Matz Gang. This will be its premiere showing. Not recommended for minors or those of a nervous disposition.

Hacker Farm describe themselves as “A celebration of the home-made, the salvaged and the hand-soldered. DIY electronics performed on obsolete tech and discarded, post-consumerist debris. Make-do and mend. Broken music for a Broken Britain.”

The Somerset-based trio self-released their album “Poundland” in 2011 along with an array of unusually formatted limited editions. Last year’s “UHF” was released on the Exotic Pylon label.

Not much is known about noise unit Libbe Matz Gang. Named after a 17th Century Estonian werewolf posse, they released their debut 7” EP last year on the Libertatia Overseas Trading label, followed up by a split 7” with Xylitol.

Material from both groups will be on sale at the event.

February updates

1. SPATIAL INTERVIEWED BY JOHN EDEN

An interview I did with Hackney-based producer Spatial is now published exclusively and for the first time at The Liminal.

This piece was originally intended for issue 5 of Woofah, but has been fully updated. (It’s the last outstanding thing I wrote for Woofah, which makes me a bit smiley and a bit weepy!). Spatial is an interesting guy and is well worth checking.

2. MORE TURBULENT TIMES ACTION

Turbulent_Times_9

Idwal Fisher did a lovely review of my Turbulent Times fanzine, along with other publications.

The zine now has its own page if people are interested in ordering it or knowing about distributors etc.

I have properly started work on the new issue but can’t say when it will be out!

3. AND FINALLY, SOME ADVERTS:

End of 2012 updates

tt9covtt9covtt9cov

Turbulent Times #9 is selling steadily and is now also available from these recommended stockists:

Norman Records

Turgid Animal

I know that the cost of overseas postage is putting some people off, so you might want to order a couple of things along with your zine and reduce the p&p charges that way.

Norman Records is good for the Libbe Matz Gang/Xylitol split, Pete UM and IX Tab. Turgid Animal stocks all kinds of noisy dark shit that it’s worth taking a punt on if that is your thing.

Pòster

The interview I did with Jordi Valls of Vagina Dentata Organ is now online at the Datacide site along with other great articles from the new issue.

I have updated my VDO fan site with a collection of material concerning the recent amazing performance as part of the Extreme Rituals festival in Bristol.

My own review of the event will appear in Turbulent Times #10, to be published at some point in 2013…

I am very bored of “best of 2012″ lists and will not be doing one. Check my reviews in Turbulent Times or Datacide and scroll back through posts on here if you want to know what I rated!

Happy new year to you all.

 

Datacide issue 12 published

release date: 20 October 2012. 68 pages

This looks like another great issue!

It includes an exclusive interview I did with industrial music superstar Jordi Valls about his work as Vagina Dentata Organ and The Valls Brothers.

Also a bunch of my reviews (including some of the lengthier ones intended for Woofah).

ORDERING

1) “You can order it now for just 4 euro which includes world-wide postage. We can only offer this super-cheap price by shipping the copies in bulk, meaning if we ship something like 50 copies it costs about half of the normal price of 3 euro for postage per copy (which obviously would make no sense). We will do the first mailout on monday or tuesday, and won’t do another one for at least another 2-3 weeks.

So to get your copy hot off the press, please either send 4 euro via paypal to datacide@c8.com or take out a subscription, which costs only 10 euro for 3 issues. You can also include back issues 10 and 11 in the subscription deal – in case you don’t have them yet – so you wouldn’t even have to worry when the next issue is coming out!”

2) You can order online now from the Praxis Records shop.

3) I will get some copies in a week or two, so chase me up.

4) There will be a Datacide/Praxis Records stall at the London Anarchist Bookfair on 27 October.

There will be a 20th anniversary Praxis Records party on the SS Stubnitz in London on 2 November.
