    Cabaret Voltaire – The Voice of America

    Juan Mendez (Silent Servant) joins us to discuss a major root in industrial sound — Cabaret Voltaire’s “The Voice of America.” Juan talks about the importance of this record in relation to his work as well as the entire landscape of industrial and experimental music. We also get into his history as Silent Servant, his work with Sandwell District and more. The damage is done and the messages have been received.Check out Juan's radio show on NTS, Optimistic DecayFollow us on Instagram: @noisextraFollow us on Twitter: @noisextraaaSupport us on Patreon: patreon.com/noisextra

    In Conversation with Black Leather Jesus

    In Conversation with Black Leather Jesus

    To say we had a blast talking to Richard Ramirez-Matzus and Sean Ramirez-Matzus, the core of Black Leather Jesus, would be a criminal understatement. This 2 hour talk could have easily been 10 hours. We get into the early days of Black Leather Jesus and Deadline Recordings, our favorite horror movies, and so much more. Time to sharpen your pencils like a knife in a giallo; another noise history lesson is in session.Check their music out at Richard Ramirez' bandcamp and The White VisitiationFollow us on Instagram: @noisextraFollow us on Twitter: @noisextraaaSupport us on Patreon: patreon.com/noisextra

    Dissecting Table – Between Life and Death

    Dissecting Table – Between Life and Death

    Japanese industrial psychosis plows through the wastelands in the form of Dissecting Table’s “Between Life and Death.” We are fully on board for Ichiro Tsuji’s unique industrial art and have a blast digging into his post apocalyptic sounds. Hop into a flamethrower-equipped car and crank this dystopian masterpiece. Everyday is one more day of insanity. Note: Due to hardware failure, we lost the Connelly's clean audio and are working from the call audio instead so it doesn't sound as pretty as usual.This album is included in Dissecting Table - Ultra Materials (1986-1991)Follow us on Instagram: @noisextraFollow us on Twitter: @noisextraaaSupport us on Patreon: patreon.com/noisextra

    Tangerine Dream – Zeit

    Tangerine Dream – Zeit

    As nearly every classic Japanese noise artist has cited Tangerine Dream as a huge influence, we thought it was time to cover them and their “Zeit” double album from 1972. One of the very first full on experimental ambient records, “Zeit” sends us all on an abstract sonic path while we dig up the roots of what makes up everyone from Aube to Merzbow to Nord and countless other noise legends. Touch the haunting heavens with this masterpiece of experimental art.Follow us on Instagram: @noisextraFollow us on Twitter: @noisextraaaSupport us on Patreon: patreon.com/noisextra

    Nord – Electronic Initiation

    Nord – Electronic Initiation

    Are we in the cosmos? Underwater? The jungle? It’s possible we are in all three at the same time with Nord “Electronic Initiation.” Nord is one of the earliest Japanese noise projects, and this brain buster of a CD came almost 20 years into Nord’s existence. Midway through the episode, we got messages from Kimihide Kusafuka, aka K2, aka owner of Kinky Musik Institute, the label that put this CD out. Kusafuka gave us some behind the scenes info on “Electronic Initiation” including one bit of information that changed our whole perception of the album.Follow us on Instagram: @noisextraFollow us on Twitter: @noisextraaaSupport us on Patreon: patreon.com/noisextra

Highly recommended!

I’ve been a patreon subscriber since day one and the content just keeps getting better. Highly recommend this podcast for anyone who has even a passing interest in noise. I’ve discovered a handful of awesome artists and records I’d probably never have heard thanks to the NOISEXTRA gang. The enthusiasm and love for noise that Tara, Mike and Greh bring to each episode is infectious!

Essential listen!

This is pretty much the only podcast that I listen to regularly. These folks have a scholarly knowledge of Noise, but they are still rabid fans and their unadulterated passion for the music and culture is infectious. As a long time Noise fan I’ve had plenty of friends fail to understand my love of the genre. I’ve suggested that some of them listen to the episode where Skin Crime are interviewed about the Music Should Hurt compilation with great success. There’s no better primer that I can think of.
