Descent to Mimas
(Groundfault - GF018) CD $12.00
John Wiese has been instrumental in pushing the evolution of Eric Wood’s Man Is The Bastard side project toward the predatory galactic monster it is by combining its original caveman electronic roots with new atmospheric sounds. Using oscillators, mixer-feedback and other electronic grit, this is a fairly killer concept album about traveling to one of Saturn’s moons, drilling through the surface of the cold, cold rock, fatally stumbling upon a catacomb of alien millipedes, and drifting lifelessly inside space coffins.
Live At Babycastles
(Small Doses - DOSE124) CD $12.00 (Out-of-stock)
The very first performance of the Anthony Saunders / Eric Wood iteration of Bastard Noise, whose approach this time is fully electronic, devoid of any vocals or more traditional instrumentation. The near 40-minute performance starts at a slow, quiet boil, and builds progressively into an intense onslaught of oscillators, noise, and ambience. See the trailer here: http://youtu.be/DoIL4PR1368
(Manufracture) Used CD $10.00
Eric Wood and John Wiese continue the brutality of previous efforts and belch forth textured and heavily layered noise-scapes torched with hand-made electronics, laptop computer, and death vocals.
Spastic Colon / Bastard Noise
(Pinch A Loaf) Used Split CD $10.00
Carefully arranged late ’90s noise tracks from Bastard Noise, who make good use of low-end rumble and high-end screeching, and Spastic Colon, who toss around and spew unrecognizable samples in a droning stew of fantastic muck. One bonus non-LP track from each group, with Bizarre Uproar making a guest appearance on “Earned Extinction.” Embossed cardboard sleeve.
(Kill Frank Lantini ) Used Split CD $5.00 (Out-of-stock)
Bastard Noise's caveman electronics, vocals, and atmospheric sounds versus The Slasher Film Festival Strategy's minimalist film-score inspiration (a solo project founded by Christopher Ashley in 1996).
Throne Is Melting
(Helicopter - H8) Used CD $8.00 (Out-of-stock)
Previously released bad-ass, ear-cracking scrape by Wiese, Wood, AFC’s Tara, Kenny Sanderson of Facialmess, and Erik Hoffman & Jorge Martin of Groundfault and Spastic Colon. The twenty-plus minute “Red Hurricane” is a highlight. Sealed.
(Small Doses - DOSE121) 7-inch $7.50 (Out-of-stock)
Yasutoshi Yoshida of Government Alpha joins the brotherhood of the skull flag on Side A for a creeping, crawling track where dark ambient swells underpin Eric Wood’s trademark vocals and noise loops. Side B has the harsher track, with Hiroshi Hasegawa of Astro tearing through synth lines with blasts of noise while leaving room for Wood’s growled and screamed vocals. Olive green vinyl, printed vellum envelopes with an insert.
