Naked Whipper

pure fucking death metal. from Germany.

Painstreaks (MMI, 1995)


Bonny Billy and Marquis De Tren featuring the Monkey Boys / 2001

Will Oldham, Paul Oldham, Mick Turner and Jim White. Tour only CD, 500 pressed.
As good as it sounds. Meandering and fragile melodies from 66.66% of the Dirty Three, with Oldham's plaintive lyrics adapted from Rabindranath Tagore’s book of devotional poetry, Gitanjal.
Beautiful late night melancholy to sweep you into a trance like state.

Ah Ya Zen

hear | more | vinyl


Albeit written in 1994 and published not until 1996, hence quite outdated nowadays, this book still remains an all-time classic. Varg Vikernes deals with the history and destiny of his native homeland - Norway - and appeals to his kinsmen to abandon the materialistic and antihuman "modernism" in favor of the ancient and heathen beliefs of their elders.

This work outlines the philosophical and ideological ideas of an angry and very upset young man - Varg - as they were back in 1994. Even though it's outdated - and not really representative for Varg's ideas as they appear today - it's still very worthwhile, interesting and thought provoking reading.

If the first mix I posted here was called Winter, I suppose this one's got to be Spring.

Starts incongruously with bare boned drums and voice, gets a bit woozy, then enters raw jacking territory, before descending into grindy and sleazy cross-dancefloor sexual come-ons.

Alex Baby mixtape / 1995?

Another cherished old mix tape, dug out and digitised. This one is from Alex Baby, one time member of 23 Skidoo and then of Ronin Records, a London hip hop label. He DJed a lot in the 90s, with a residency at Rotation, but I can't find any information on what he's up to now. I think this tape was something to do with either the International Stüssy Tribe or the High Power parties that Michael Koppelman and Fraser Cooke used to put on intermittently, but I can't remember, it was ages ago.

This is a wonderful hour and a half, from the mid 90s golden era of Sean "Puffy" Combes, DJ Premier, the first wave of Wu Tang albums, The Nod Factor and Mary J. There's plenty of R'n'B to get the girls on the dance floor, but tempered with loads of good hip hop to keep the boys that don't dance happy. To ice the cake, it includes the Bad Boy mix of Mariah Carey's Sweet Fantasy, which is one of the most sublime pieces of music ever recorded.

Pom Pom - CD 001 (2008)

"The shadowy Pom Pom have been beavering away in obscurity since 2001, releasing untitled tracks in text-free, "none-blacker" vinyl-only editions, no information available aside from gushing blurbs on the Kompakt website "Totally exciting new techno from Berlin. Drexciya-inspired genius druggy stuff!". In a culture currently collapsing from promotion-overload, this information-void is particularly appealing. And Pom Pom's clunky brand of techno only adds to the charm—brazenly hand-crafted, functional, but with little interest in fads or genre conventions, this is weird stuff. It sounds like the product of Berghain mated with Profan: dark, reverb-dunked rhythms lost in pools of tape hiss, divergent patterns causing further confusion, crudely sampled patches of static. Pom Pom is Marcel Dettmann meets Marcel Marceau; punishing, but with tongue-in-cheek and a playful glint in its eye. If T. Raumschmiere is techno's punk-rock, then Pom Pom is its NoWave."

March 07, 2010


From the heart of the Ross Bay cemetery, our beloved desecrators put out an album that has become the MOST IMPORTANT landmark in the history of underground metal. "Fallen Angel of Doom" is Canadian Blasphemy's debut LP but it already sets them up on a level that is defined as PURE CULT. Probably those newbies nowadays will never understand (ahahaa, go on worship your crappy little Graveland-clones!!) but this is the VERY ALBUM that educates the entire metal underground, be it death, black, grind or crust. In those times like '89/'90 where the underground scene (and its various crossovers department) are rich and abundant, this album brings the band up high to the throne of legends. Even Trey Azagthoth from Morbid Angel was a fan of this unholy masterpiece. So what's the catch here? Gerry and company introduced an extreme direction to underground metal that transcends far beyond the boundaries of the norm, by pushing brutality far up to the apex that transforms into PURE PERVERSITY (which is probably also a reflection to their human trash nature). The morbid satanic obsessions and the SICK warmachine conjured up from the EXTREMELY BRUTAL desecration of metal music made this one so special. A far cry from their more primitive (but equally enjoyable) nature of their '89 demo days, this unit have improved thrice-fold as proficient musicians. The tons of technical details are thrown in the most chaotic and savage ways possible, with the drummings powered up by a nuclear-like intensity and speed, while the lead guitar works are the perfect symphonies of insane virtuosos. But the most prominent identity of this band is the sick vomits here, which throws up unintelligible messes all over the face of holiness. anus

Songs: Ohia / Travels In Constants / 2001


Peak period Jason Molina, exorcising his demons through typical images of moons, winged apparitions, sickles and blackness over 18 skeletal minutes. There's a ghostly echo of the vocals at the 7 minute mark, as if Molina is singing a duet with one of his lost souls, trapped somewhere out in the wilderness.

Travels In Constants was a subscription only series of 22 EPs by various artists, released by Brooklyn label Temporary Residence between 1999 and 2007.
