Justice Yeldham - Load records
Wow, this has to be some of the most insane/amazing music I've ever heard.
Apparently this guy uses a contact mic, a belt of effects/delay pedals and glass. He hums and makes vibrations against the glass and out comes the most amazing sound. He writhes around with his face all contorted and of course eventually cuts himself. I stumbled across more and more about this amazing artist until I was almost the last one left at work. I couldn't stop watching and reading more about this guy. Incredible.
Here is a great interview.
Just when you think noise has been completely taken to it's limits, along comes something to blow your mind again. Jut don't think that, it's ridiculous. You can't even come up with where things will go next.
This amazing seven inch is on Load records, purveyors of future noise. There's one on it's way to my mailbox.
