BASTARD NOISE "A Culture Of Monsters" LP

Ltd black vinyl in gatefold jacket, includes 16x24 poster.

Bastard Noise follows up the release of "The Red List" with a full-length "magnum opus" titled "A Culture of Monsters". A paramount product of composition, sonic-rendering and package, this second volume of bass/percussion/electronics structured work realizes the full, true power of "The Skull" as a critical force in contemporary musical expression. Here "spun-steel-girder" virtuoso Eric Wood and Trogotronic "electronic-ace" W T Nelson are joined by original Man is the Bastard master-drummer Joel Connell for what could become the most interesting T.B.N combination to date.

It all began in 1991, as a parallel electronic and experimental entity to the legendary powerviolence outfit Man Is The Bastard, but now it has evolved into so much more. It has become a modern political statement. Not in the same degree as say what Crass and Conflict have done, but in a way that still challenges the established forms forcing its audience to question everything. And that is exactly what A Culture Of Monsters, the next chapter from the Noise's revolving musical collective, aims to do. Quickly following a recent split with The Endless Blockade, this LP has come full circle, reverting to their heavier days of yore. Although still revelling in the structured electronic sampling and more atmospheric origins, the band head towards more cohesive territory, incorporating noteworthy guests Nathan Martin (Creation Is Crucifixtion) and Lack Of Interest's Mike Reynolds. Vomiting every possible influence into this recording, not only are The Bastard Noise able to pull it off, but they do so in a way that puts other noise and industrial experimentalists to shame, mixing it into the brutal Power Violence legacy that MITB had created so greatly.
