Noise Nomads - load records
This is extreme noise, the kind of thing if some culture outside the earth were to judge civilization, I don't think they would be too jazzed to come down and make nice.
It really tests your patience, and everyone else's. So you might only listen to it a few times. But it's better than most of the annoying kitch 45's you still are keeping for nothing. They aren't funny...who cares. I mean what am I going to say about this? It's great because it's pushing on those limits of recording or sound experimentation, but let's face it that's kind of a dead end
If this was playing from a house on Halloween down the street, no one would go near it. It is truly a noise nightmare.
Feedback and screaming. It sounds like someone is kind of being murdered through an amp. Or growling. Take your pick.
I need some coffee.
Justice Yeldham is conceptually more extreme? But then again all this guy has is a mic and some pedals.
This decription is from volcanic tongue (?) or Load:
NOISE NOMADS - 'S/T'
7" - LOAD097
WESTERN MASSACHUSSETS IS A LAND OF SHOPPING OUTLETS AND HEMP-SKINNED HACKY SACKS. JEFF HARTFORD BREATHES IN AND OUT AMONGST ALL THIS HUB BUB. WHAT HE DOES DO IS GIVE OFF AN ORGANIC CRUNCH. HE'S NEVER CONTENT TO JUST PLAY TO ONE SCHTICK AS IT WERE, INSTEAD, PRACTICING EVERYTHING FROM CHRISTMAS TREE IMPERSONATION, TO HAND CHIME PHASERY, TO ALL OUT 4-TRACK ABUSE. WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU ON THIS 7" IS THAT YOU GET A FEVER FOR HIS FLAVOR. HE HAS SEVERAL OTHER CASSETTES, AN LP ON RRR, AND A SELF RELEASED 7". BAM.
