Lard - Power Of Lard EP

Lard - Power Of Lard EP
Label - Alternative Tentacles
Released - 1989
Style - Industrial/Punk/Sludge

Artwork By [Sleeve Concept] - Biafra
Engineer - Keith Auerbach , Steve Spapperi
Featuring - Al Jourgensen , Jeff Ward , Jello Biafra , Paul Barker
Producer - Count Ringworm , Hypo Luxa & Hermes Pan
Written-By - Lard

Just like Godflesh, I first heard Lard on 89.7FM WCVT Towson back in 1990. And the track they played is still my favorite of all the Lard material I've heard. That track was the uber-long Time To Melt, clocking in at nearly 32 minutes of pure grinding sludge. Perfect for turning an otherwise cheerful party into an awkward, uncomfortable situation for a really really long time.

1 The Power Of Lard (7:28)
2 Hellfudge (4:58)
3 Time To Melt (31:59)

Doctor Death's Volume IV - The Marvels Of Insect Life

Doctor Death's Volume IV - The Marvels Of Insect Life (V/A)
Label - C'est La Mort
Released - 1990
Style - Dark/Gothic/Cold

** A note about the Label [from Angry Robot]
C'est La Mort was a small, independent record label, run by Woodrow "Woody" Dumas of Baker, Louisiana. The label existed from the mid-80s to the mid-90s, releasing gothic, ethereal, and "artsy" pop and rock. The label is best remembered for its series of Doctor Death compilations, which grew out of Dumas's Doctor Death radio show. Also of note was Area, the label's flagship band, which released four albums before members went on to form The Moon Seven Times and Lanterna. C'est La Mort did much of its business via mail order and indie record stores, but did eventually establish distribution through Cargo in the '90s. A few C'est La Mort releases, including all four Area albums, were eventually reissued by Projekt's Archive sub-label. Any releases not reissued by Projekt remain long out-of-print and difficult to locate, other than from auction sites or used and rare record dealers. Some people refer to C'est La Mort as a "bedroom 4AD."

Barry 7's Connectors

Barry 7's Connectors [V/A]
Label - Lo
Released - 2001
Style - Italian Sound Library/Funk/Jazz/Electronic/Other

(review from b00mkat)...
Less on a fried funk trip, more of a relax your mind and float downstream psychedelic odyssey‚. An alternative chill out album if you like, ranging from blissed out easy vibes reminiscent of Lemon Jelly to the dark ambience of ‘Scared Trip’ by one Doris Hays (!!) - a precursor of Aphex Twin’s selected ambient works 2 ‚ thats for sure. In this parallel universe classic tunes such as the superb Solar Flares rub shoulders with weird electronic experiments from the secret laboratory of Cecil Leuter and Georges Teperino by way of Venusian coffee table music, slick space funk - Quasars -, eerie sci - fi vibrations – Paul Bonneau - and the Joe Meek in outer space of Electronic Rhythm. An LP that proves once again that there is more to library music than kitsch pop cheese.

Dry & Heavy - Full Contact

Dry & Heavy - Full Contact
Label - BSI Records
Released - 2000
Style - Japanese Dub/Jam

I first heard of Dry & Heavy only a few months ago, when my buddy pulled out his record (bright, orange sleeve w/ lion sketch on the front) and asked if I'd ever heard Japanese Dub before. I immediately thought of Mute Beat, then realized I didn't know of any other prominent Japanese Dub reggae artists. He put the needle on the record, played me the 2nd last song on Side B - I believe it's 'Life in the Jungle' but not completely sure. It was so dope, I was shocked and couldn't even speak until the song had played out completely. So good. Plus I had never heard of them before, so I was 2x shocked.

I made him play it back for me about 10 times before he finally had enough. Two weeks later I came over with my Nomad, and recorded the entire record.

A couple disclaimers first; the track titles and sequence is all fucked up since I didn't write stuff down as I was recording it. When I got home to edit the audio, there were more tracks than what tells me. Plus, the track lengths didn't match up to mine. So disregard all that. I did signify which were vocals and which were Dubs - the vocal tracks are really funny to me (sorry! just being honest!) but the Dubs are what really shine. PLEASE DO ENJOY>>>

** Dry & Heavy is apparently quite popular in the Japanese hippy/reggae/jam-band/ festival scene. Generally, I'd be bummed about how Japanese peeps and German peeps are always light years ahead of Americans in their music scenes and degree of weird music popularity. But this LP was released domestically on a very very cool, small indie label out of Portland, Oregon. Doing some research on other BSI releases that infiltrated my music radar, I came across an unassuming little online record shop called Zion's Gate - located in Seattle. They have one of the most impressive vinyl selections, not just for Dub but also Electro, Minimal Techno, Ghettotech etc. Check 'em out...

Wartime - FFfT

Wartime - Fast Food For Thought
Label - Chrysalis (Promo Only)
Released - 1990
Style - Rock/Hardcore/Funk/Go Go

Wartime is one of the most underrated and least well-known Henry Rollins side projects. This is the only release they ever put out, and it's unclear whether it ever got a full release. The vinyl says "For Promo Only" (which is what I'm doing now) and only has 4 full 'songs.' But this is possibly my favorite Rollins record outside of the Black Flag stuff. This cassette had heavy play back in '91/92, but I never appreciated the go go flavor until I just recently found it again on vinyl... I believe it's just vocals, drum machines and various layers of bass. The bass is what pulled me the first time around... Lots of distortion, flange and envelope filter - which really gives it alot of rock guitar character at times. And the percussion is all drum machines and go go rhythms. Excellent.

The sleeve's artwork alone puts this record in a realm of its own. Whacked-out electro/tech from Otto von Schirach that will make unsuspecting victims completely lose their shit. Riddled with nasty DSP, this record is absolutely grimey.
The Phoenecia tune is my favorite of the two. 'Yo Yo I'm Feeling You' vocal quickly makes way for a demented orgy of glitches. Not for the weak.
