This is a mix I made while still living in Michigan that’s been floating on various memory cards until just a few days ago. Unfortunately I can’t place the piece between the Burning Star Core/Prurient collab and the Nate Young track as I’ve lost the tracklist for this mix some time ago. I like to fall asleep during the hazy moments of this one, engage in some horrific dream and let Jagger’s synth workout at the end be my alarm clock.

Killer show coming up on Sunday, Nov. 21st. If you’re in the LA area there’s no reason to miss it. CF will be signing his new book POWR MASTRS vol. 3, along with with Brian Chippendale of Lightning Bolt with If ‘n Off at Family on the 20th as well.
My friends Emeralds played in Los Angeles last night at the Henry Fonda Theater. It was a fantastic set right from the start but it took me a while to start recording video. I managed to capture the last 10 minutes of their set.
I’ll be DJing classic and old school industrial records all night with my friends Sarah and Amber (who do Street Witches events together), as well as projecting some reels from my 8MM porno collection. Our friend Johanna Hyman will be showing some of her porno collage art and the whole night should be a blast. It’s free and the place is comfortable. Here’s a facebook event page if you keep track of stuff that way.
Back from the holidays and a few shows out of town with SPYKES and FAILING LIGHTS. After tons of killer noise talk in the whip, I figured I’d come home and scan some classics.
POWER TO DESTROY 2CS cassette compilation on OPEN WOUND. released in 1993 and packaging in elegant but somehow crude and simple handmade fold-out housing the two cassettes. line-up includes: final solution, genocide organ, sudden infant, con-dom, smell & quim, grey wolves, taint and more. two hours of noise hell This is a perfect example of what I like in this style. Scummy industrial noise, horrible audio garbage, sound collage and piercing power electronics. Not every track is killer but most have that charm. More great images over at discogs.com.
OPEN WOUND flier stuck in my copy of POWER TO DESTROY. can’t stop salivating, both from looking at the list of available tapes and thinking of a time when labels had catalogs like this.
WUTANES HEER – die unbekannter deutchser soldat C46 – Martial industrial euro-noise, 1997 style. Can’t find info about this one anywhere online. Ltd. 50 with two double-sided inserts and an unmarked BASF C46 in an envelope with a couple of paste-ons.
SPECULUM FIGHT – neutrophile CS – Great old tape from my good friend Damion Romero, then known as SPECULUM FIGHT. 1994 release on BANNED PRODUCTION (a label I’m currently working on something for). #’d under the x-ray that is stapled to the insert. Tape labels need to be cut/popped to play the cassette.
ZERO PERCENT INTEREST – Holding Court on Hunt’s Time CS is the fifth tape on Michigan’s one-of-a-kind AMERICAN TAPES label. It’s a duo of John Olson (wolf eyes + who knows how many others) and Eric Cook (grativar, persona). I’ll be scanning a lot more American Tapes oddities in the next few weeks.
