Bonsho - Japanese Temple Bells 8-17th Century (1984)

The Bonsho is the large temple bell. It is suspended inside the shoro constructed specifically to house the bell. The Japanese character "bon" is used to express purity. Because the Bonsho is used for Buddhist Services it is given this honorific title. The Seattle Betsuin uses the Bonsho in a very unique style. Although the Bonsho is traditionally only rung prior to the service to let the "assembly" know that the service will begin, the Bonsho at the Betsuin is also rung after the beginning of the service and is used as a focal point during our "Bonsho Meditation". Listening to the Bonsho may remind us of the words found in the beginning of the Heike Mono-gatari: "The voice of the bell at the Jetavana grove resounds with (the teaching of) all conditioned things are impermanent..."

South Pacific Drums (1965 Recordings)

These rhythms have hundreds of years of tradition behind every beat. Every group on this album consists of about ten talented percussionists. They employ 'toeres', a native form of wood-block, hand-carved from the 'Tamanu' tree, each of a different size and pitch. Several played together create a musical triad. A contrasting sound is sometimes furnished by the 'ofe', a section of split bamboo. The split section is raised and made rigid by inserting small pieces of bamboo at each end, and the instrument is played by hitting the raised slits with two bamboo sticks. The remainder of a Polynesian percussion orchestra consists of 'pahus', drums varying in size from tiny bongo-like instruments to the massive, deep-voiced bass drum, usually a hollowed-out coconut trunk covered by a sharkskin head. Each drummer has a rhythm of his own to perform, each more intricate as the drums gets smaller, and they all blend surprisingly into a definite syncopated pattern.

BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus conducted by Mark Elder - Prokofiev: Cantata For The 20th Anniversary Of The October Revolution, Op. 74 (1996)

From Wikipedia: Obscure as this cantata may be, it should never be dismissed as insignificant. Disturbing, it certainly is: its text alone, drawn from the writings of Marx, Lenin and Stalin, is, to say the least, controversial. In ten contrasting movements it relates the story of the Bolshevik Revolution and the birth of the Soviet Union, from the battle for the Winter Palace in 1917, through the suffering of 1918 and Lenin's funeral in 1924, to the building of factories and collective farms in the early Thirties and the final consolidation of Stalin's control over the country with his new constitution of 1936. Begun by Prokofiev in 1936 on commission from the All-Union Radio Committee, it was finished the following summer. Prokofiev expected it to be part of the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the October Revolution of 1917. Due to the political climate towards artists in 1937, Prokofiev decided to assure his safety by withholding the work. The Cantata had to wait until May 1966 for its premier, 13 years after Prokofiev's death. Ironically, Stalin was also dead and also disgraced by this time. The cantata is a type of patriotic cantata. The music is frequently unconventional and certainly way out of line with the Communist Party's populist remit of Socialist Realism. Its extravagant sound palette combines a full orchestra with typically Russian choral writing, folk instruments and the sounds of marching, gunfire and sirens, all to spectacular pictorial effect. Leaving political acceptability aside, the Cantata is a thrilling piece of music, written when Prokofiev was at the height of his powers.

Recorded at Royal Festival Hall, London, England, Feb. 17, 1996.
Mark Elder - Conductor, Oleg Miroshnikov - Speaker, BBC Symphony Chorus, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Geoffrey Mitchell Choir, Stephen Jackson - Choir Master, Philip Burwell -Engineer.

Pislarven - Strak en Stuiterend (Live in Parkhof 27-05-1995)

After Sjakie moved to Groningen, Lennaert from Boycot and countless other bands replaced him on drums. Bertje Doperwtje was already replaced much earlier by Leus (ex-Convulsion and Disciples of Tonka on guitar. They played a sort of distorted Japanese style hardcore with Dutch lyrics.

A Bloody Occurrence CDR (2005)

Transatlantic gruesome team-up of SCHIZOID (one leg DIRK FREENOISE, one arm swinging the axe of The Zoid and partly braindead) and SHARKI FACE (part-time cheerleader in CRACK WAR and mysteriously part of the neon entity known as CAROLINER RAINBOW). Stuttering no-wave feedback and molten noise lava snorted at intense volumes. Like throwing slow-motion snowballs and gargling absinth in the snow, we've tried but we're not any wiser. Strings are raped, datacrushing effect swirl and non-wave dancefloor-friendly noise clouds. Will have you air-guitaring all over the place! The multi-color handsilkscreened big poster-sleeve was designed by full-time bum and part-time cripple Jelle Crama. Limited to 100 copies.

P16.D4 - Distruct (1984)

Assemblage of transformed and (re)structured sound material. Recorded XII/82 to XI/84. Released I/85 as LP (Selektion SLP005) and in 94 as CD (Odd Size CDOS10). Directed by Ralf Wehowsky with Roger Schönauer, Ewald Weber, Stefan Schmidt, Gerd Neumann, Thomas Memmler and Peter Lambert. The idea for 'Distruct' was born in 1982, when Harry C. Poole of Smegma-fame - in reply to the invitation for the Selektion's 'Masse Mensch' compilation - offered to send basic tracks to be completed by P16.D4. To quote Harry: "A complete tape made thousands of miles apart". As it were, Harry never sent his tape, but RLW began to organize the 'Distruct' project at the end of 1982. Material was submitted by the 14 groups/artists named below and was used - together with P16.D4-material - to compose 'Distruct'. Participants were Bladder Flask (UK, track 6 & 8), Déficit des Années Antérieures (France, track 5), De Fabriek (The Netherlands, track 10), The Haters (Canada, track 7), Philip Johnson (UK, track 1, 7 & 8), Hiroki Kocha (Japan, track 10), Merzbow (Japan, track 8), Fredrik Nilsen (USA, track 2), Nocturnal Emissions (UK, track 2, 8 & 9), Nurse With Wound (UK, track 1), Onnyk (Yoshiaki Kinno, Japan, track 3 & 6), Harold Schellinx (The Netherlands, track 2), Die Tödliche Doris (Germany, track 2 & 5), Vortex Campaign (Belgium, track 10) and Achim Wollscheid (LP-cover, Germany).

Josef N - Josef N (2002)

The sound of this debut album by German artist Josef N is characterized by ritual landscapes influenced by Indian and Arab sonorities, with some anguished dark-ambient walls of sound, brutal distortions and celestial female voices. Also very particular and obsessive German speeches put an obscure atmosphere to an album that can be compared to acts like Toroidh, DDR or early Der Blutharsch.

Chimuser / Other Peoples Children - 5x Misery CDR (2005)

"Chimuser (or any of his countless other ridiculous monikers) continues to give new meanings to rubbish. Ever woke up in the gutter, sweating in your own smoldering puke ? Creepy hissing layers of haunted violin manipulations and worthless objects turned into magnificent pieces of crap. No sleep and cheap gutwrenching beer are the fuel for non talent junknoise muzak. A minimal dense composition, we were lucky to caught him in one of his emo moments. Did we say dense ? Up next are the rising youngsters of harsh noise Other Peoples Children displaying their tormented stormcock. Corrosive feedback and burning distortion injected with enough youngblood energy to lay down a mammoth. Packaged in spraypainted jewel cases with glued metal objects and utter trash, most likely the dirtiest product yet under the banner of Audiobot. Limited to only 40 copies and praise the lord for that..." ~Audiobot.

DDR - Verlogener Realismus (2002)

DDR embodies an extreme left-wing imagery, mixing original apocalyptic atmospheres reminding of a catastrophic interpretation of the socialist/industrial music school.

Erthad - Gma CDR (2007, rec. 2002)

Russian project Erthad, originating from Kazan, exists since the late 90's, but until now still hasn't made any official releases and preferred to stay in the underground, recording music only for himself and his friends. 'Gma' was recorded in 2002 with the use of voice and software noise synthesizers. If one says that the album's style is called 'ambient noise' - is to say almost nothing. The disc has a very specific atmosphere: this is a noise meditation, calm and detached from emotional fuss. An intuitive electronic pulse synchronizes with brain frequencies, rising and falling waves of non-aggressive white noise pacify thoughts, and constantly rustling high frequencies when listened to attentively evoke dissociative sensation, dissolving perception in the sonic field. However, everything as always depends on a listener himself. ~Zhelezobeton.

Hard to find cassette release, not available on CD, by The New Improved Jook Savages, on Holy Funk Records, from Port Reyes, CA. "Blistering ranting/music... not for the wimp-hearted. You haven't heard 'em even on college radio because there's so much cussing in the lyrics. NOT what you're expecting. Blows other "angry rappers" out of the water.

Moon & Arthur Indenbaum, Harmonica: K. Fats, Engineer: Ethan Kenning, Producer: R. Moon. This band started in the 60's as a ragtag and stoned jug band playing such ultramodern instruments as the hat box cover, the kazoo, and the straw (yes, you heard me right: a plastic drinking straw, with holes cut in it, played like some sort of squeaky piccolo) along with the usual guitars, jugs, and a gutbucket bass.

Anadorei - 7" EP (2003)

6 track 7" EP by Japanese punk band Anadorei, released in 2003 on the Dutch Freaked Out Frequencies label. Great review: "Words can't do justice to the feeling of paying seven bucks for a single that is described as "three cute Japanese girls playing trashy noise punk" that actually ends up being three dick-nasty skanks playing god-awful hardcore sludge with the most annoyingly high pitched screeching vocals my ears have ever been subjected to. I could repeatedly stab my ear with a rusty shank for ten minutes and it would be more pleasurable than listening to this shit. Side A consists of five "songs" with titles like "69 N Hole" and "Hell On Earth" (actually, that last one pretty accurately describes the experience of not only hearing this sonic refuse, but doing so with the knowledge that you PAID SEVEN BUCKS FOR IT. What I won't do for you, the loyal TB audience!) with an unbearably LOOOONG cover of Black Sabbath's 'Sweet Leaf' taking up the entire b-side. Fuck, this is so unbelievably bad. If anyone has the nerve to even tell you that this record doesn't suck (let alone that it's good) please reprimand their erroneous appraisal by beating their nutsack in with a crowbar. Repeat if necessary. That might sound harsh, but trust me, they'll feel a lot better with a sack that resembles some regurgitated ground chuck than you would if you actually plunked down seven dollars for this." ~Steven Strange/Terminal Boredom
