The Horrors / Suicide / Nik Void
Shadazz / Radiation / Rocket USA

The second installment in this series is kicked off with The Horrors' version of 'Shadazz'. Now, The Horrors we've always considered a bit of a London scenester cartoon band with a nice line in frightwig mops & kohl-eyed kiddie menace but what they do here is astounding. Sammy the Crab from The Mighty Boosh would love this, it's well aquatic &a...view item »

Peaches/ Effi Briest/ Alan Vega
Jonny / Universe / No

I'm probably not the best person to be reviewing this as i've never made much time for Suicide and don't really know the tunes presented here. Peaches cover of 'Jonny' is pretty stripped back and to the point with just the original bass line and the whispered vocal left in tact. It only lasts a minute or so but it's kinda cheeky so i'll let it s...view item »

Lydia Lunch/ Suicide
Frankie Teardrop/ Frankie Teardrop

Lydia Lunch has taken one of my Suicide personal all time classics 'Frankie Teardrop' into new realms of darkness. Where the originals menace lay in it's simplicity, she opts for a much denser sound with lots of effects and takes it into nightmare territory. Building on the disturbing undertones of the original, Lunch drops the subtle approach...view item »

Bruce Springsteen / Alan Vega
Dream Baby Dream

Bruce Springsteen is large. Larger than life. The boss. He's massive. He's also the only person alive that could posibly make a song by NY sleaze terrorists Suicide schmaltzy. Yes, Brucie Bonus spearheads the first in this quite exciting range of celebratory 10"s on Blast First Petite to say happy mofo beeday to Alan Vega who's managed to get ...view item »

Alan Vega & A.R.E. Weapons
See Tha Light / War

The ever-amusing ARE Weapons have finally gone and achieved what seemed to be the purpose of their existance by recording with Alan Vega on this single sided 12" from Blast First Petite. In fairness they've provided him with a decent track to groan his graveyard Elvisisms all over on 'See Tha Light'; a slow beat, sci-fi effects and chimey, tre...view item »


Michael Chapman
LIVE VPRO 1971

This Dutch radio recording offers a rare chance to hear the Yorkshire folkie onstage in the early years of his career. Accompanied only by bassist Rick Kemp, the singer / guitarist performs loose and laid-back takes on tracks from his then-current albums on the Harvest label. Both CD and red vinyl versions include a download of ...view item »

eagle/deer
The Summer Of Sepia

A dense, sad and strange neo-folk record from Eagle/Deer. Summer of Sepia is a collection of American folk music driven by Sara Charles solo banjo and guitar playing and delicate vocals. Her haunting mountain tales and multi-instrumentalism bring to mind Sufjan Stevens, and this vinyl ...view item »


Nisennenmondai
N'

Following 2013’s N, Nisennenmondai are back with a mutation of two of the aforementioned album’s tracks. As the album was ploughed through the tour cycle, they naturally morphed into something new and different enough to re-record. Expect a repetitive techno sound in a noise rock chassis. Out on vinyl 12&rdq...view item »

Bruce Langhorne
Soundtrack To The Hired Hand Of

In 1971, Bruce Langhorne soundtracked the Peter Fonda film The Hired Hand. Langhorne recorded his accompaniments at home in Laurel Canyon, feeling his way around the film with instruments including guitar, Farfisa organ and appalachian dulcimer, truly capturing the deep American spirit ...view item »

Pan Sonic

This right here represents the final recordings of Finnish heavyweights Pan Sonic! Suitably for a group with such a brutalist sound, they were commissioned to soundtrack a documentary about building a nuclear power plant: construction recordings are integrated into Vainio and Vaisanen’s ha...view item »

Stick In The Wheel / Lynched
Split

This release gets so creative with the packaging that there isn’t actually any room for any physical music at all! Instead, this split between political folk groups Lynched and Stick In The Wheel is presented as a 24 page newspaper, printed in colour, with the tracks to be grabbed via download code. Nice a...view item »

Blood Sport
Axe To The Root

More recorded musics from Sheffield’s finest Blood Sport! Proud purveyors of a sound they’ve dubbed ‘aggro-beat’, they play loud, hard and groovy, with lots of sharp angles. 4-track 12” Axe To The Root also comes with a bonus mix-CD of the band’s favourites, including the likes of ...view item »

Effi Briest
Rhizomes

I don't know this band. I know of them and I've heard them but I don't understand them. I think that's what I meant. I don't understand them. Maybe now is the time. After all if Blast First and Sacred Bones are on the case then maybe it's just me? I was expecting a maximum goth-out and there's certainly a fat goth element hanging around here. Si...view item »

Primal Scream/ Suicide
Diamonds Furcoat, Champage/ Ghostrider

Here's another of those Suicide 10" things on Blast First Petite. This one is by Primal Scream and they cover 'Diamonds, Furcoat and Champage'. I've not really been a massive fan of Primal Scream over the years. I used to like Screamadelica but I can't really listen to it anymore and none of the other albums have really struck me. I quite like...view item »

Michael Chapman
The Polar Bear

Improv folk artist Michael Chapman comes through with another of his free form releases, this one following-up the resilient 'Pachyderm', which relied on one steady chord to create a minimal ambient landscape. 'The Polar Bear' brings in flourishes on other acoustic instruments such as piano and cello, while still maintaing Chapman's sp...view item »

Excepter
Familiar

Ethereal electronic pop here from Excepter, whose career was hit by tragedy after their well-received 2010 album 'Presidence' with the loss of core band member Clare Amory to cancer. Here they come to terms with the loss of their friend with a pitch-black collection of woozy cosmic disco, like a mogadon Zola Jesus. The limited 2LP has the full a...view item »

Factory Floor
Remix Series : Volume 2 (CHRIS CARTER)

And in comes Throbbing Gristle professor Chris Carter to remix the stiff, industrial dance pop of Factory Floor, taking tunes from their early days and making them noisier, weirder, harder, among other things. As far as remix projects go, this one shows off the lineage of indus...view item »

Nisennenmondai
N

Nisennenmondai are an excellent example of what can be achieved with inhuman levels of focus. This Japanese trio strip the ‘rock band’ format down to its minimum elements (I’m pretty sure drummer Sayaka has no more than three pieces to her kit), and are religiously repetitive in building up and then sticking to...view item »

Rank/Xerox
Rank/Xerox

Sometimes here at the towers, we try to have an afternoon of enjoyable music, particularly on a Friday. Last week, Ian found an old Wire compilation and a great time was had by all. Its lopsided, aggressive use of guitars can clearly be heard in the work of this band. From the opening strains of the fir...view item »

Forrests

I can’t blinking get into the sleeve. They’ve wrapped a sticker around the entrance and I can’t blimmin’ well get in!  The press release looked semi interesting so I’ve found a track online to review from. This is an instrumental duo out of Dublin who have been regularly compared to ...view item »

Klaxons/Alan Vega/No Bra
Sweetheart/Speedway/Super Subway Comedian

I thought The Klaxons had disappeard off the face of the planet but here they are covering Suicide's 'Sweetheart'. How I feel about this I really dont know. The Alan Vega style vocal trembling comes across as a bit forced. I guess their trying to be faithfull to the original but it comes across a bit karaoke to me. I think I'd have prefered them ju...view item »

HTRK
Work (Work,Work)

If Marry Me Tonight is the soundtrack for preparing to go out, then Work (Work, Work) is the sound of the comedown. Covered in swirling synthesisers, hypnotic 808 sounds and Standish's deadpan vocals, it is a sonic journey into the turmoil of the bands life; moving through Berlin and London, losing friends Rowland S Howard and founding band memb...view item »

HTRK
Ha/Panties (Live)

Nice to have a HTRK record again. This time a 12" on Blast First Petite. 'Ha' is pure mid-tempo experimental rock sleaze with a relentless bassline and pounding kick drum. The repetition is wicked and has me in a trance. This is heavy but with a dirty pop sensibility. On the flip is a live version of 'Panties' with a lush drum machine and huge...view item »

John Fahey
1978 Live TV Concert

In my opinion this is the best available John Fahey DVD released so far. He's at the height of his chops and passion on these tracks. I believe this was recorded on the same tour as the On Air CD which is also a must have. Yes there is the occasional mic feedback and its tracks are not separated. However there are many more tunes performed than ...view item »

Factory Floor
Remix Series: Volume 1 (STEPHEN MORRIS Remix)

Two 12"'s reviewed together for your convenience. First of all trying to get myself to grips with what they do. Its kind of like A Certain Ratio playing Donna Summer's 'I Feel Love' without having heard any music but The Normal. Its very original sounding sparse electronics, slashing guitars and moaning vocals. On one 12" you get the o...view item »

Monte Cazazza
The Cynic



Pansonic/Keiji Haino
In The Studio

You can always rely on Keiji Haino for some amazingly ridiculous titles but I think he's really outdone himself here. Take a bow 'Imperious doppelganger of tears, playing catch with objectivity that evades ultimate responsibility' and '"Without doubt", an attestation written from that time, will no longer have effect, because the wound has widen...view item »

Martin Rev
Stigmata

Suicide synth-hero Martin Rev treated the world to this solo album back in 2009. And you might be surprised by how it sounds: none of that Suicide pummel here. Instead, Stigmata is a set of seemingly religiously-inspired pieces for synthetic orchestra: the sound of some strange future s...view item »

Gavin Friday & Dave Ball / Thomas Brinkmann / Alan Vega
Ghostrider / Diamonds, Furcoats, Champagne / Puss On The Time Warp

Oh it's another one of these. Gavin Friday (Virgin Prunes) & Dave Ball (Soft Cell) do a very faithful version of 'Ghostrider'... Too faithful some might say. I guess they beef it up a decent amount but it seems a tad pointless to my ears. I saw Kompakt vet Thomas Brinkmann at Primavera the other year but unfortunately his set was blighted by...view item »

I've been awaiting the release of this here Pansonic and Keiji Haino 'Shall I Download A Blackhole And Offer It To You' since it popped up on our site on my day off and I clocked it.

I must confess to being disappointed by the latest Blast First Suicide 10". On paper the prospect of Sunn O)) and Pan Sonic collaborating and doing a cover of 'Che' is the sort of thing that makes me get extremely exited. The Sunn O)) lineup here is Joe Preston on vocals, Stephen O'malley, Greg Anderson, Steve Morre on Hammond, Rex Ritter on Moo...view item »

Youthmovies have a CD EP out on Blast First Petite. The cover has some bloke in his undies whose torn out his heart and is happily munching away on it. I'm not sure what they call it when you start eating yourself to death. Some kind of suicidal cannibalism. You start off biting your nails and then you get the taste you see....
