Beyond Painting

(Actual Tapes - 001) Used CDR $15.00

Recorded in 1990, self-released in 2010. The “light, echoing ambience and drifting feel” of “First Quarter,” says Brainwashed, and “the repetitive drone and almost chanting voices” … of “The Unforgiven” “seem to herald the development of” isolationism. “Bleakness comes [amid] gentle horn-like tones and reversed melodies” on “Soft Self Portrait” and “the layered, looped string sounds of ‘Beyond Painting’ …, a bit more tinged nostalgia rather than outright malignance…. [T]he stand out piece … ‘Al-Qa'ida’, with its vaguely jazz noir guitar and electronics structure … has … a rhythmic throb to it, rather than … spectral, textural ambience.



(Hanson - HN211) CD $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Total misery by Robert Turman (ex-NON, Z.O. Voider) and a former Wolf Eye, recorded in January 2009 during a horrible Ohio snowstorm. Dilloway on synthesizer and tape delays, Turman on tapes and effects, both frozen and stuck in the snow. Very minimal, very slow, very cold.


Way Down

(Dais - DAIS017) Used LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

Robert Turman’s industrial genre-bending masterpiece, previously released on cassette (Actual Tapes 1987). Turman was the other half of NON, alongside Boyd Rice, together releasing the Mode of Infection / Knife Ladder single in 1977. After parting ways, Turman went on to self-release cassettes, including Way Down which uses synthesizer arrangements and drum machines along side guitar solos, piano chords, tape loops and primitive sampling to produce dance-like minimal synth blended with industrial darkwave noise. Turman resurfaced in 2005 in collaboration with Aaron Dilloway. Hand-numbered 265/500.
