好きじゃないと言えない
Or, "Probably Not a Good Idea"





(I feel this need to feel bad.)






Lemon Kittens - ...The Big Dentist

UK
1982
Post-Punk

Thoughts: RYM calls this post-punk, but there's a lot more going on here. The first track is an 11-minute experimental exploration with avant-folk elements woven throughout. More post-punk-like sounds ensue, but it's like it's all been wrapped up in bubble wrap. When the bubble wrap comes off, you realize someone's FedEx'd you something discordant and unpleasant, which is just how you want to feel at this moment.

Release info: Released on vinyl in 1982 (Illuminated / JAMS 131, UK) and reissued on CD in 1994 (Biter of Thorpe / bot 131-05, UK).

Hanatarashi - 2: "Maw"

Japan
1988
Noise, Sound Collage

Thoughts: This album cut my face in half, discarded one half, copied the other, and glued the identical halves back together. Then I sat down and drew a unicorn. It looked like a vortex.

Release info: Released on vinyl in 1988 (Alchemy / ARLP 018, Japan).

That album inspired a fantastic tribute record

That I was wise enough to buy on CD

I've been looking for this but can't find it digitally online anywhere. This is The New Blockaders' and Vagina Dentata Organ's 2012 collaboration, ----------. That's right. The album is titled "----------", making it pretty much impossible to find, if indeed it even exists out there. What makes this rare item harder to find is the fact that it's a handmade numbered edition. Only a very few were ever made. (Tochnit Aleph / TA106, Germany)

Dreaming Together - 4 Edens and a World of Shells

France
1988
Dark Ambient

Thoughts: This is incredibly lonely music. It's like operating heavy mining machinery on a deserted planet where it always rains and it's always night. You've got echo-location devices you have to lower on cold chains into dark caverns. And you're the last miner left. You keep working because it's what you've always done.

Release info: Released on vinyl in 1988 (Odd Size / OS 05, France).

Actually, the album is called TNB / VDO, but the track name is ----------.

Here ya go...

RYM's got the album name messed up, then. But more importantly, I was hoping someone like you would reply with the info! Cheers!

The New Blockaders - TNB / VDO

UK
2012
Musique concrète

Thoughts: This one made me feel so bad. It's got no genre tags, but I'd call it Musique concrète, because it sounds like a couple plumbers who failed to fix my garbage disposal, and having realized they'd failed, decide to make a racket and feign work in order to charge me more. Quite a distasteful trip down the noise toilet.

Release info: Released on handmade, numbered edition vinyl in 2012 (Tochnit Aleph / TA106, Germany). 40 copies.

Yeah, I don’t know what they have there,
but the album and performers can be seen as a mess -
but I’ve been used to this kind of thing with special
packaged noise since the early 80s.

So you know: the album is one short performance -
only from TNB. The included artwork is from VDO.
That doesn’t mean that VDO didn’t perform at that same show.
They did, and released their performance as Allegory of Cosmic Violence.

I thank you for all this information. I've gone and submitted a correction at RYM based on this knowledge.

Strafe für Rebellion - 5

Germany
1988
Industrial

Thoughts: Like a girl singing whimsically at the heart of a great machine. It's only a promise of life at first, but her EKG laugh kickstarts the heartbeat and gets the machinery turning. A little Japanese traditional folk soothes the machine back to sleep.

Release info: Released on vinyl in 1988 (UN 06, Austria).
