Re: THE RITA

Really nice to see Anna Christie reissued. One that’s definitely been on my want list for a long time.

Re: Synth Sounds: Old and New

a lot of people in noise/industrial right now don't really understand synth architecture or how to "play" their synths. ^ Me for the last 6 years trying to figure out my MS-20 (and wishing those Behringer Roland Juno clones had been around because all I want to do is make John Carpenter t...

Re: Extreme metal (death/black/etc)

Been listening to Perverted Ceremony (BE) lately and this kinda black metal is for me. On another forum someone said: "They sound like Beherit thats bit too stoned!" and thats exactly what it sounds like haha! Lo-fi, bit all over the place, repetative, weird and what not. I love this band...

But wait I'm back! We're obviously not mentioning Hijokaidan because that's so obvious and they have there own thread. Kevin Drumm "S/T" CD/DLP - you can buy this for a pittance. It's great. My favourite KD. Body/Head - want the Sonic Youth without the Thurston, Lee and Steve? Well it's Ki...

Re: noise guitarists

I'm a big appreciator of "weird" guitar but it can be hit of miss. I think one of the most interesting "guitar" based records is Derek Bailey & Dave Holland "Improvisations for Cello and Guitar" on ECM. I'm very partial to this one. I don't always love Bailey's albu...

Re: Extreme metal (death/black/etc)

I am curious to hear what other people think of the new Tomb Mold. I have always liked them but this has so many interesting elements to it, I've been jamming it in my car non stop all week. Lots of shimmery guitars and really twisty riffs happening. For me it's my favourite thing they've done hands...

Re: Extreme metal (death/black/etc)

New Tomb Mold FUCKS hard. Reminiscent of "Human" era Death with some Atheist touches. Wow. Yes. Really solid and the bass playing fucking slaps.

New Blood Incantation single also fucking rips! One DM tune and one synth piece. Gotta get that 12"!!!!!!

It was pretty good! I didn't remember watching the previous one but my wife swears we did.

I watched Confess, Fletch the other night and it was really funny. Jon Hamm is very amusing.

Re: Punk/Hardcore

Oh I'm Canadian. $35 USD plus the shipping would bring the cost up to $70 each!

I picked up the "Portland Edition" of the Kings of Punk LP in a shop today and even that was $55 plus taxes!

Took a spin with my boots of Fuckheads and Equalizing Distort. Just absolutely fantastic. I picked up the last LP a while back and I have only spun it once so far, gotta get a little deeper into it.

How many folks here are into the noisier side of punk like crasher crust? It's hit or miss for me - I love GLOOM but during my last bender for this stuff I was listening to Zyanose and felt kind of uninspired by it. I really dig Isterismo a lot too.

Re: Punk/Hardcore

I just got the Pyhäkoulu 2LP in the mail. This thing is fucking amazing. Somewhere firmly rooted in hardcore, but with almost gothic tinges but without going post-punk. Very weird, and hard to explain vibe. This is cool. Thanks for the tip. Yeah, this was not on my radar - I'm going to check it out...

Really love this one - lots of drum machines, Chrome-esque minimal industrial. "A posthumous release for people who like early industrial music made by punks like Missing Foundation, Factrix and Minimal Man"

Wonder what the runoff of Finnish hardcore into....Finnish experimental was like if it even happened at all?

Swedish and Finnish hc are absolutely top tier for me - Anti-Cimex are probably my favourite hardcore band outside of (the obvious default choice) Black Flag.

Re: General release questions/Collector scum circle jerk

The collector market being as it is I sold my Totalitar records in the early 00's and watched prices go nuts! I was only able to buy the reissues back a couple years ago.
