Consumer Electronics
Airless Space

A quick warning, despite the artwork, this is not a Guided by Voices album. Instead it's the latest from horrible (in a good way) music purveyors Consumer Electronics. After tackling the endlessly inspirational topic of Brexit on their last album, on Airless Space they have turned that attention to one D. Trump. Moving from London to San Francisco has resulted in a mellower sound than the best, but given the subject matter, one that is no less horrible. 

Consumer Electronics
The Weight / Hostility Blues

I’ve probably never heard anything quite so terrifying on vinyl. Consumer Electronics has found the shortcut to my nightmares, easily surpassing my old USSR pressing of Alfred Schnittke’s third symphony. If you ever want to run a 'scared straight' anti-drug campaign on your friends, The Weight / Hostility Blues is the way to go. Expect more distorted synths than Merzbow, more crazed screams than MSI, and three to six days of insomnia. 

Philip Best
Captagon

Philip Best is a power electronics nerd and member of the (cross out where necessary) exceedingly stupid/very good Whitehouse. He formed Consumer Electronics, the band where he antagonises audience members while whispering sleaze over dissonance, when he was fourteen. Ludicrous. Here's a book of things he write for the proudly turgid press imprint Amphetamine Sulphate. It is probably a dark, dreary read.

Whitehouse
Birthdeath Experience

Originally issued back in 1980 on Come Organisation, 'Birthdeath Experience' was Whitehouse's second album, which followed the same year as their debut 'Total Sex'. This early incarnation of the pioneering power electronics / noise group featured founding member William Bennett alongside Peter McKay and Paul Reuter. Using minimal means of construction; tone generator, synth and effects they achieved maximum results - creating some of the most soul shattering, disturbing audio ever committed to tape.

Whitehouse
Dedicated To Peter Kurten, Sadist And Mass Slayer

William Bennett (Now known for his works as Cut Hands) fronted power electronics outfit Whitehouse were the antithesis of the morality campaigner they took their name from. Cold, sadistic and punishing noise filled with distorted scraping metal and piercing electronic screeches. Originally released in 1981 Dedicated…. Was made with then member Peter McKay. Remastered and offered up on green or black vinyl. Very limited.

Whitehouse
The Sound Of Being Alive

You know, I think Whitehouse just released a Greatest Hits album… What is the world coming to? The Sound Of Being Alive contains 12 transgressive classics, including alternate universe sound-of-the-summer party hit ‘Wriggle Like A Fucking Eel’! All newly remastered by Noel Summerville to sound extra good. On the group’s Susan Lawly imprint.

Whitehouse
Halogen

Ah, Whitehouse… You ought to know already if you'll like this or not. Halogen is their 1992 album, brought out here for the first time on the vinyl format. All your favourite Whitehouse tropes: sex, abuse, violence, general nastiness. This unpleasant material comes luxuriously pressed to 180g vinyl, on the Dirter label.

Thank Your Lucky Stars

You may have noticed that Whitehouse’s 1990 LP Thank Your Lucky Stars shares its name with a Beach House album that came out a couple of years back. That is where the similarities between the two groups end. Steve Albini had a hand in producing this collection of nasty, grizzled power electronics. This long-overdue reissue comes with four bonus tracks.
