A compilation of lo-fi noisish stuff from circa 1997 on E.F. Tapes, featuring Hornswaggle, Bludy Noz (involving yours truly), Wrong (the Minneapolis noise-rock/free-jazz trio, not the metal one), MJ23, Oskrin S. Cassot-Bout, Ashtray Navigations, Doug Harrison, Children At Play vs. Emil Hagstrom, Into Temptation, Coits, Tetsuya The Lo-Fi Man, e, Malta, Flux, Target Shoppers, Elft Kazbek, Teenage Kicks, and Seth Roback. No FLAC files on this one, I ripped it back before I was bothering to do those and don’t want to do it over. Makes for a smaller download, at least.

(no cover image but it’s on the tags)

More of the bedroom goofball outsider casio vibes that characterized the early days of The BassTurd, before the hip-hop influences and overall cool-funny-guy persona he would eventually become known for. Songs with titles like “I Puked On Your Love Seat”. Overall pretty much along the same lines as the earlier-posted “131 Songs”. Wesley Willis does backup vocals on “You’re A Fucking Asshole”.

The Body and Blood of Jesus Christ

Here’s the third episode, the only one I have a date recorded for. I seem to have done a poor job of keeping track of or announcing what’s on this one and I think I even mention one that doesn’t even show up. Crap.

I was contemplating doing more of these, but I don’t know how seriously, given how screwed-up this one turned out. If anyone has tried subscribing the RSS feed I linked last week, please email or comment and let me know if it’s working.

Here’s episode 2. I don’t recall the date which I originally made and released it (early spring of 2016 probably), but disregard the show announcement, obviously.

Happy new year!

Remember that time I tried to have a podcast?

Well I may or may not bring it back, but at the very least, the three episodes I did are going up back up here on this site (rather than soundcloud), and the new feed URL is 972-523-0223. So put that in your podcast playing thingie. Maybe I’ll get back into it and make more episodes, maybe I won’t. Don’t infer any “resolutions” just because of the date.

Playlist:

  1. Tangerine Dream “Rising Runner Missed By Endless Sender”
  2. Krallice “Idols”
  3. Neon Lushell “Leave Me Alone”
  4. R. Elliott Mason “We Ain’t Got No RSpec”

Another C-90 compilation, but much less on the heavy side than those I’ve posted recently. This is from 2011 on a label called Greentape and is more in the realm of bedroom lo-fi, casio, folky, acoustic, and the odd experimental track. It has a good bit of that ’90s DIY lo-fi indie vibe. Names I recognize from elsewhere include Teaadora, Office Park, and (D)(B)(H). A nice mellow listen. I tried to even out the volume levels a bit but I didn’t try very hard.

Different Paths

Scumbag punk, raw, sloppy, out-of-tune, drunk, rowdy, tossed-off, recorded live on a boombox, with lots of cover songs. Bloody toured with GG Allin, that’s important and referenced a few times. That should all give you a fair idea what most of this tape sounds like, although it starts off with a headfake consisting of karaoke covers of “Your Cheatin’ Heart” and “White Christmas”. There are a couple more karaoke tracks, and even some spoken word poetry towards the end. The covers are all uncredited, Bloody evidently expects you can identify them without the help.

The Worst of Bloody Mess

L.O.C. (Lord Of Cheese) was a one-man casio noisecore band. Skeptical of the idea of noisecore done on nothing but a cheap keyboard? Well the blown-out recording helps to keep it brutal, not to mention hilarious.

The Forgotten Sessions

More from the great Steveggs, on a split tape with this interesting German group who turn in a pair of quite nice long noise tracks. Pile Of Eggs, of course, does their usual goofball thing. Lots of fun.

A solid grindcore split from 2009.
