    Been obsessed lately with Talking Heads, esp. first 4 albums. Impossible not to groove to the last bit on this song:

    guess no one likes death metal?

    Saw irkallian oracle in stockholm some time ago, amazing concert, i was extremely wasted and they had this ritualistic set up (including hooded robes) that used worked brilliantly.

    New Swans actually sounds amazing, very pleased! The three latest albums have all been beautiful.

    I'm seeing them on Tuesday for the third time :)

    I will have spare earplugs for Swans first-timers.

    You're so kind. I couldn't hear for three days last time I saw them. Didn't have that problem the first time but that was in a big warehouse vs. a smaller church

    Saw them in stockholm for the "our father..." tour, people were actually leaving the venue due to the volume. Amazing show though,.

    Old habit from the raves I go to. There's always some teenager who's at their first party who just doesn't realise how loud stuff gets. Gira even plays loud with his solo acoustic stuff.


    Yep, last couple times I saw them in Koko people looked like they were in pain, not sure how the venue on Tuesday is going to be, but it's better to be prepared for the worst.

    I just don't think a lot of people are used to the sheer physicality of the music that Swans are aiming for.

    She's done covers of Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, and Michael Jackson. I'm in love.

    I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to Merzbow, and the likes of Venereology is a bit much for me, but enjoying this

    Been listening to some older noise-y stuff too:

    La Monte Young and co in the 60s

    [​IMG]

    Some dudes who were part of Fluxus, from the 70s

    (this one gets good around the 2:30 mark when the violin comes in)

    ^ speaking of industrial/noise, power electronics was the thing in my teens. Was pretty involved in the scene myself for some years

    any takers?
