Vigorous cosign. Miss this tour at your own peril.
That's an interesting review. It has me pretty excited for tonight without being a total spoiler. Ped Deposit put on one of the most amazing sets I've seen this year when I watched them a couple months back, but it sounds like that set was a completely new one. I wish they were playing tonight as well, dammit!
yeah, i'm not a fan of either of the openers tonight... the show next week is a different story though. openers should be great then.
i'll be on the look out for you. i'll be in a purple t-shirt and i wear glasses.
Who's opening your show?
And after reading a few interviews with Jeff last night, I definitely understood more of the process that he was going through in making his live music. Jeff was beaming as he played too, so I'm guessing he was pretty happy with the show.
Anybody else heard Container LP on Spectrum Spools? Listened to my copy today... beast of an album. I don't know what to say other than it was awesome and it made me dance.
Don't have Fabric and haven't listened to Forma yet, but fuck everything on this label is so incredible.
The first Fushitsusha album is, I think unanimously considered, the best place to start - it's untitled, but usually referred to as Live, Live 1, Live (1989), or PSF 3/4.
I was listening about 5 minutes ago to the live album that came after that, PSF 15/16, and it's equally as great.
I concur that Fushitsusha is the best place to start with Haino.
His album, Un Autre Chemin Vers L'Ultime, that came out this year is really great... but it's nothing like his guitar driven stuff. Also, he worked on a collaboration with Jim O'Rourke and Oren Ambarchi called In A Flash Everything Comes Together As One There Is No Need For A Subject that is one of my favorite things to come out this year.
Pancakes, did you make it to the Rene Hell show? I kept my eye out for you and even asked some dude with long hair if he was you (much to my embarrassment he was a sound guy)... It was a good show, despite the sound issues. I am thinking I'll go to the show next week if I'm free that night.
Ctrpllrs, I just finished the Container LP. It rules. Always game for weirdo acid jams. I wholeheartedly recommend picking up the Fabric LP, as it's my favorite non-Bee Mask Spectrum Spools release.
Top 10 noise releases of '11 thusfar?
a few standouts (proper noise imo, not counting any outsider synth music and whatnot) that come to mind for me:
Frieder Butzmann - Wie Zeit Vergeht
Keiji Haino, Jim O'Rourke and Oren Ambarchi - In A Flash Everything Comes Together As One There Is No Need For A Subject
Super Minerals - The Hoax
Ghédalia Tazartès - Repas Froid
Thymolphthalein - Ni Maître, Ni Marteau
Aaron Dilloway - Lip Syncing To Verme
James Hoff – How Wheeling Feels When The Ground Walks Away
Helm – Cryptography
A.M. Shiner – Bad Cop
Cool. Thanks. Outsider synth music is good too.
i'd have to think too hard about that. gotta get back to homework. i'll try and come up with a list of some other good stuff as well. noise was easy because it's been a slower year (and I've listened to less...). i'm sure I missed some stuff (like the masami/o'rourke/gustaffson record).
oh, and as far as contemporary noise goes... i can't recommend that Aaron Dilloway record enough. definitely pick up a physical copy if you can.
Yeah, most of these are more synth than noise, but some of my favorites...
Temporal Marauder - Makes You Feel
Jurgen Muller - Science of the Sea
Mortuus Auris & The Black Hand - The White Paper
Super Minerals - The Hoax
Panabrite - Nordsee/Contemplating the Observatory
Alms - Harsh Meditative Trance
Mist - House
Emuul - The Drawing of the Line
Minutiae - Plane Sight
About to go play that A.M. Shiner tape again, only listened once and don't remember it. Yeah, this is quite a listen as well.

I'm assuming The Terminal Symphony isn't considered noise then if it's not on your lists.
No, I consider it some sort of noise. I don't label music with genres much though. I just forgot to list it, do love that album.
I like the album that came out earlier this year by them/him/her/whoever. It's mellow and dreamy and good for drifting off. I don't know if it's the same album.
Found out about them through Fact, who also pointed me towards Cut Hands - Afro Noise I , which I just listened to, and is pretty awesome. It's the guy from Whitehouse. Some parts have high pitched electronic squall like you'd expect from him, and other parts lay unsettling atmospherics over really busy, agitated percussion.
MSOTT is pretty great. The latest one is stellar. The LP from last year is good too. She also makes music with her husband as Quiet Evenings (he makes music under the moniker Nova Scotia Arms) and with Brad Rose as Aerial Jungle.... Her and her husband run the label Hookervision.
edit: now that I've seen the pitchfork review... i realize it told you all of that... sorry for the redundancy. just check out the album, it's fantastic.

That's a fair enough comparison for this album... The review isn't right in saying that she tends towards shorter songs for this project... Just the LPs are that way. Several of the tapes I have are pretty severely long form.
Yeah, I've been meaning to buy that. Haven't listened yet though. Probably need to order it soon if I want it.
Ordered whatever LP it was that Brad Rose put up today.
fuck yes... Ricardo Donoso is the shit. This sounds like a major shift in style... but it sounds fantastic.
He's one of the guys in Perispirit, one of my favorite noise "groups" around right now.
So I was going through my list of albums this year... While I am still working on that list, this year has been an incredible year for vinyl reissues. I picked 10, but I could probably wrangle up another 10 without any difficulty. All of these should be sought out and purchased without hesitation:
Group Ongaku - Music of Group Ongaku (essential early 60s japanese experimental, electro acoustic improv)
Jim O'Rourke - Old News series (two sets, so far, of early electro works)
Elklink - Rise of Elklink (completely insane vocal/tape treatments from this Shadow Ring spin off)
Stockhausen - Mantra (finally a good performance/vinyl treatment of one of Stockhausen's most under-appreciated works)
M.B. - Symphony For Genocide (Bianchi's best work in my opinion, really brutal high brow noise)
Harald Grosskopf - Synthesist (early synth tripper that illuminates the resurgence of this stuff)
Kevin Drumm - Imperial Distortion (3LP distortion of the noise god's "minimal" album)
Hecker - Sun Pandemonium (probably my favorite Hecker release, crazy experimental acid jams)
Gruppo NPS - Nuove Proposte Sonore • 1965-1972 (super early italian electronic music in a perfect, but pricey, Die Schactel edition)
Ghedalia Tazartes - Diasporas (incredible, unclassifiable electro acoustic debut from this french composer, also had another incredible reissue out on PAN)
And the obligatory Bee Mask spectrum spools treatments...Also the Yeast Culture, Dub Taylor, and Lieven Martens reissues.

the Ricardo Donoso album is fantastic if anyone is looking for some great synth jams. really sophisticated stuff.
kinda shocking that he's changed his approach this much (he's half of the really legit noise duo Perispirit)... but I'm totally cool with it if this is the result.
This show should be pretty fucking sick tomorrow night:
SONOIO (Alessandro Cortini)
Lichens (Rob Lowe)
David Scott Stone
Big Black Delta (DJ set)
