BUSRATCH

Tokei Nikki

(RRRecords - RRR999) LP $15.00

Kyoto noise turntable trio BusRatch began in 1998 (and have disbanded after eleven years, making their debut vinyl release their swan song) and performed improvised music on eight turntables simultaneously. Later on, as a duo, Katsura Mori and Takahiro Yamamoto "play back" on turntables a variety of items including prepared records, cymbals, metal objects, and mouse pads, as well as constructing sound improvisationally by using the cartridge and arm as amplifiers. Plenty of abstract needle fingering, processing, repetition and extreme noise. Side one contains two elegant, contemporary avant garde compositions. On side two are ninety-nine locked grooves. They've performed with Christian Marclay, Otomo Yoshihide, Keiji Haino, Tetuzi Akiyama, Thomas Ankersmit, Utah Kawasaki, Bruno Meillier, Computer Soup, Olivia Block, Seth Nehil, and TV POW.

CAN'T

New Secret

(RRRecords - RRRCANT) LP picture disc $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

Can't is Jessica Rylan, a n-n-noisician who exercises both restraint and vengeance in her ability to cause emotional discomfort and physical pain in the ear, as well as a unique kind of closeness and shared ecstatic state. Using analog synthesizers, a little rhythm box here, a couple distortion pedals there. Observes the Bay Guardian, “The sounds breathed from her homemade modular synths don't come off as ladylike - they're as monstrous and violent at the appropriate volumes as the harshest noise…. [G]entle intimacy with her instrument, the lightness of her voice as it passes through … bent circuits, and the passivity of her gestures as she moves the chaotic parameters of the machine in front of her … imbue her performance with femininity.”

CATHODE TERROR SECRETION

Spectre Of Historys Design

(RRRecords - RRRCTS) LP $17.00 (Out-of-stock)

(RRRecords - RRRCTS) Used LP $5.00

Debut LP by leaders in the new American school of Power Electronics. Features members of Yellow Tears. “Staggeringly focused compositions, possessed data streams screaming at faster-than-life shred.” —Silvum

EUGENE CHADBOURNE

Country Music Of Southeastern Australia

(RRRecords) Used LP $13.00 (Out-of-stock)

Noisy free improv meets country & western from the mid-’80s, recorded in trademark ultra-lo-fi fashion. Covers of Willie Nelson, Duke Ellington.

CON DEMEK

Dogmama

(RRRecords) Used LP $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

In the 1986 post-industrial wasteland of upstate New York, what else was there for Damian Catera (guitar, voice, programming), Steve Lombardi (computer stuff, voice, visuals) and Roxanne Benedetto (guitar, voice) to do but make textured soundscapes at times rhythmic and at others chaotic? Doesn’t matter, so long as there’s a strong conceptual foundation rooted in a desire to use the medium of music and multimedia as anthropological tools, engage the audience in a critical discourse, and explore the negative outgrowths of various belief systems. Nailed it. With inserts

CONSUMER ELECTRONICS

Consumer Electronics

(RRRecords) 3xLP $150.00 (Out-of-stock)

Eight tracks from their 1982 self-released cassette Public Attack, eight more from Leathersex cassette (Iphar 1982), plus live recordings from The Nailsea School and The Centro Iberico. 1993 release. Box with paste-on art. With insert sheet. Edition of 300

CRANK STURGEON

Upon My Discovery Of The Huso Dead Pain Lair

(RRRecords - RRR002) LP $15.00

Dadaist sound-stew from half-man, half-fish noise-flapper who lovingly assaults (and forces into slavery) a babbling mesh of cheap electronics, found crap, unorthodox techniques, clanging junk, spiels, mantras and who-can-tell.

DEADLY ORIFICE

Sings the Blues

(RRRecords - RRRGOD) 7-inch $4.50 (Out-of-stock)

Totally fucked-up schizo-shit noise from Texas nerve-bakers. Edition of 300.

THE DOG LADY

Tapes

(RRRecords - RRRDOG) LP $25.00 (Out-of-stock)

Michigan violinist Mike Collino uses loops, delays and effects to get kinda dark, creepy, industrial/experimental textures and atmospherics. Says Aaron Dilloway, “Excellent violin strangeness complete with multiple reel-to-reel tape delay warbled by bass drum kick pedal.... Killer style!” This LP collects various tracks from his cassettes. Each copy is housed in a hard vinyl laserdisc folder. The outside has a printed cover and the inside has one of RRR’s usual handmade covers.

FOUR WAY ANAL TOUCHFIGHT

Heritage

(RRRecords) LP + 7-inch $5.00

An out-on-the-odd smush of hook-laden pop-metal from corporal-inclined, these masked mayhemers. Fifteen tracks of Kookoo Island electro-throb dealing in themes of Viking plunder, UFOs, and ass. Colored vinyl. Numbered edition of 200.

GRAE•COM / MACRONYMPHA

Indoctrination / Blast Furnace

(RRRecords) Used LP $16.00 (Out-of-stock)

Neil Herzinger’s side-long electro-collage of dark noise, tones, found sounds and found vocals, backed with five untitled tracks of dynamic power noise by Joseph Roemer and Rodger Stella. Silkscreened paste-on jacket

HALFLINGS

Self Esteem

(RRRecords - RRR1/2) LP $17.00

Debut LP by leaders in the new American school of Power Electronics. "Carefully composed and ... varied harsh and lo-fi sounds ... produced with clarity and precision," according to Blood Ties, "Harsh noise blasts ... humming and pulsating D.I.Y. synthesizers, feedback chiming in here and there ... focused in some way or another on a rhythmic core.... Lo-fi, dark, aggressive, hate-filled, sick and tired, so many negative feelings crammed into such a small focused space." With members of Yellow Tears.

THE HISTORY OF UNHEARD MUSIC

Drop It

(RRRecords) Used LP $16.00 (Out-of-stock)

Mutant Sounds describes this “absolutely stunning, commanding” album from 1987 as “mindbending weirdity” by a “New York crew that operated at a strange juncture between post-Residents wacky song-form deformation and the downtown cabaret-on-acid improv stylizations of Shelly Hirsch / David Weinstein collaborations (with Hirsch actually appearing on three cuts here)…. [C]reative misapplications of slicked-up DX-7 tonalities and Fairlight CMI primitive sampladelic tech … lends the proceedings a vaguely Art Of Noise-y undertow which sounds absolutely alien in the context of such wayward compositional impulses.”

IRUKANDJI

Prey For Me I-V

(RRRecords - RRR200) LP $15.00

(RRRecords - RRR200) Used LP $10.00

First solo LP from New England electronic noise demon Michael Page (Fire In The Head, Sky Burial). Well-composed, extreme power electronics, a totally violent spew of heavily layered electrical junk noise. Five tracks of crushing squealing synthesizer overdrive, mangled microphone scrape, and damaged grinding machine noise, sometimes reaching wall-noise levels of density a la Knurl or The Rita, and elsewhere skulking through subdued buzzsaw feedback and grisly death screams buried in the churning chaos. The record repeats the same five tracks on the B-side.

G.X. JUPITTER-LARSEN

Big Time Crash Bang 2008

(RRRecords) LP $12.00

Nothing but the sound of car crashes, all mangled up as only Jupitter-Larsen can do it. Tires squealing, glass shattering, metal crunching. Wrecked, totaled, quite possibly the perfect noise album.

KARLHEINZ

Fucking

(RRRecords - RRRKARL) LP picture disc $15.00

Synth noise and effects with incomprehensible vocals, as evolved from earlier efforts involving tape manipulations, junk instruments, classical samples.

JASON LESCALLEET

Electronic Music

(RRRecords - RRRXENAKIS) LP $15.00

Xenakis-referencing masterwork by Due Processor Jason Lescalleet, created with analog gear (old reel-to-reels, tape effects and guitar effects). An appropriately thick tapestry of sound.

MERZBOW

Batz-Tou-Tai With Material Gadgets

(RRRecords) Used 2xCD $30.00 (Out-of-stock)

The 1987 benchmark for classic industrial collage in which Masami Akita uses loops and cut-up sounds from electroacoustic and modern classical works by François Bayle, Conlon Nancarrow, Ivo Malec, and Luc Ferrari. Subtitled De-Composed Works 1985-86, this 1993 remix reissue includes a bonus disc of loops recorded at the same time as the original but omits “Semykyoku”, “Anus Anvil Anxiety” and “Mortegage” from the original release, and “Intermission” is a short excerpt of “Dahkini Disko” from the original.

NOISE NOMADS

Nose Picker

(RRRecords) LP $15.00

First solo LP from Jeff Hartford (Grey Skull), known and feared for live performances that require a guitar-amp combo to be swung violently and dangerously close to the audience. The gracious overlords at Mimaroglu, with whom it is difficult to disagree, describe the vocals as “caveman-esque sound-poetry” somewhere between François Dufrêne and Cookie Monster, which seems appropriate for the ugly scum-noise excreted by this loveable New England creep.

DAVE PHILLIPS

They Live

(RRRecords) LP $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

An anarchist protest / actionist record, like Otto Muehl having his way with Herman Nitsch. Avant excursions of guttural excess and militant pounding, almost academic in its scope, by this current member of Schimpfluch and the former big cheese behind Fear Of God. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2009

THE RITA

Skate / Snorkel

(RRRecords - RRRITA) LP $17.00

The second in RRRecords' Foley series follows GX- Jupitter-Larsen's Big Time Crash Bang LP; on “Skate” Sam MacKinlay amplifies the sound of 50/50 grinds on metal railing with live effects manipulation by Christian Nicolay. A completely new recording is also included, taking its cues from the other, but uses different distortion chains and ideologies to try and fully manipulate the live skateboard trucks on steel and their tendencies when effected. “Snorkel” is made up of sound effect samples from over twenty different horror and adventure films with diving and snorkling scenes -- from underwater knife and spear gun fights, to straight wreck diving, etc. -- edited, layered, and heavily effected.

SICKNESS

Fuck Your Punk Rock

(RRRecords - RRRSICK) LP picture disc $15.00 (Out-of-stock)

Chris Goudreau started Sickness in the mid-1980s as a tape-loop / industrial project. Here cut up electronics and rapid-fire loops are mashed together with biting comments on today's “noise scene” golden calves and half-assed trends.

SKULLFLOWER

Obsidian Shaking Codex

(RRRecords) Used CD $10.00 (Out-of-stock)

Five lengthy pieces from 1993 that signaled a change away from tribal drumming and wild guitar distortions toward droning, chaotic dissonance with horror-industrial overtones. Classic, crushing Skullflower that peaks with the titanic twenty-five-minute “Smoke Jaguar.”

ST37 / VOCOKESH

Derobe

(RRRecords) split LP $12.00

Richard Franecki's heavily acid-drenched, guitar-driven space rock trio Vocokesh nods to Ash Ra Tempel, Bevis Frond and Hawkwind. The long-lived Texas group ST 37's crafted weirdness is full of blazing guitars and odd percussive sounds.

Record Store Record

(RRRecords - RRRRSR) 2xLP $28.00

Location / environmental recordings made inside record stores -- the sound of regular everyday customers looking at records, talking about records, buying records, and of record store owners boxing up records for mail-order customers. Audio vérité, sound poetry and a touch of musique concrète (two tracks are processed / cut-up / collage; three are straight open-mic recordings). Participating record stores are Hospital (NYC), RRRecords (Lowell), Sarvilevyt (Lahti, Finland), Second Layer (London), and Weirdo (Cambridge). Includes record bag made of heavy-duty nylon with the RRR squiggle design silkscreened by Shogun Shop / Heartworm Press. Also includes a bonus platter selected at random from the back catalog of RRRecords; it's unrelated to the concept of the album, but we're listing it as a 2xLP for postage purposes. TEDIUM HOUSE BEST OF 2011.
