Arsonicide

(Harbinger Sound - 103) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

“Arsonicide matches the early hysterical Whitehouse sound with harsh oscillating feedback, electronics and wild vocal assaults,” explain our friends at Volcanic Tongue, who remain amazed by Gary Mundy’s bloody-minded noise from 1983 “that combines arcing cracked synth tones and sudden explosions of voice, matching the best of Maurizio Bianchi’s ‘symphonic’ work but with a supremely crude UK DIY edge that is particularly satisfying. On the flip the electronics get even more alienated and extreme, with minimal Morse Code patterns dancing beneath flat-line feedback drones and waves of minimal tone threat.” Edition of 250 copies.

Myth

(Harbinger Sound - 102) LP $20.00 (Out-of-stock)

Our friends at Volcanic Tongue tell you everything you need to know about this classic industrial album by Gary Mundy: as one of the earliest releases on Broken Flag in 1983, Myth successfully liberates rock’n’roll from the service of generic form. “The first track is massively psychedelic,” they go on to say, “With a churning miasmic appeal that sounds like it’s devouring several decades of outlaw sound with alla the triumphal Non of the first Faust album. Later tracks are a little more pugilistic, with electronics that double all over themselves again and again, generating hypnotic matrices of pulse-based melodies and whooshing outer space effects.” Edition of 250.
