1997 ferocity of practical life 10''


The sound of Generic Flipper is as follows: loud, heavily reverbed drums that sound like they were played in a dungeon, topped with a dull, dead sounding bass playing really catchy anthems, a guitar just making a bunch of feedback and noise and a couple of goofy louts shouting on top of the noise.

Armpit is another Clayton Noone project (along with CJA and the Futurians), this one being (I assume) the oldest of the three. Back when Last Visible Dog was in its first year or so, Clayton suggested we do a release, but something terrible went wrong and it never happened. (...) frantic free-noise taken as a snap-shot, not as a polished, emasculated 'album'. Yes, I think classic Dead C, along with a bunch of HCorp releases--though Armpit seems far more chaotic than those other bands I've referenced here, and it seems as though at any moment the whole thing is about to fall apart, though it never does.

Boyd Rice's NON, in a superb dark-ambient album. Absurdly disruptive and unsettling - extreme drone-music.

Grouper / Pumice

Grouper (Liz Harris) and Pumice (Stefan Neville) are set to join forces on a tour of Neville's New Zealand homeland in March. To commemorate this event, Soft Abuse (in conjunction with the artists themselves) will release a tour 7" single, which is strictly limited to 500 copies & features exclusive new songs. Grouper's contribution, 'Rising Height,' is a gorgeous example of her elongated Kendra Smith-esque fuzzy drone craft. Pumice gives us 'Twin Neck Double Kick Bum Chin,' a new song that could've fit well on Quo.

Released in 1987, the album is considered death metal's first archetypal document. Possessed's proto-death classic Seven Churches may have predated it by almost two years, but the fact of the matter is that both were concurrent works from a demo perspective, and while Seven Churches represented something of a unplanned transition between thrash and death metal, Scream Bloody Gore clearly defined the new offshoot's true essence for the first time. Boiled down to the most basic terms, this transition simply entailed propelling thrash metal's sheer speed and ferocious execution into further inaccessibility with the addition of gore-obsessed lyrics delivered via often indecipherably growled vocals. Needless to say, this unprecedented level of sonic hatred went down a storm with thousands upon thousands of angry teenagers across the world.

José Mário Branco

José Mário Branco is a portuguese musician and composer.
He began his career under the portuguese fascist regime and was persecuted and exiled in France. He worked with José Afonso and Sérgio Godinho, among other proeminent names of portuguese music.
With a strong personality and a rarely seen coherence in his resistent’s beliefs he worked also for theatre and cinema. Some of his most known works are “Ser Solid(t)ário”, “Margem de Certa Maneira”, “A noite” and the iconic “FMI”, where the portuguese revolutionary movement, with his dreams and frustrations, finds a musical synthesis. This last work, according to the author cannot be played in radios, TV or any other kind of public broadcast. Not withstanding, “FMI” is, probably, his most well known work.

Bugskull (often spelled Bügsküll), the brainchild of Oregon’s guitarist and vocalist (and former folksinger) Sean Byrne, coined a style of arrangement that was the post-rock equivalent of Brian Wilson’s orchestral productions: a catalog of musical mistakes instead of an abundance of instrumental counterpoint. The “songs” of Phantasies And Senseitions (1994) were jams of found sounds, electronic sounds, distortions, out-of-tune passages, abstract noise, and, last but not least, senseless lullabies. Distracted Snowflake Volume One (1997) marked the formal triumph of his techniques of lo-fi avantgarde. Each piece was carefully sculpted with a myriad of sounds, resulting in “songs” that were both overwhelming and exhilarating.
