Memory Repeating

AA Records No Cat

7" Lathe

Limited edition hand-cut lathe on Nate Young (Wolf Eyes) and Alivia Zivich's own label with a single blast of intense power-blues-noise from Dominik Fernow aka Prurient on a painted black lathe in a printed kraft paper sleeve bag.

Prurient & Carlos Giffoni
Heavy Rain Returns

Ideal Recordings Ideal-030


New collaboration between Carlos Giffoni and Dominik Fernow. Starts off in an intense, minimal-beats Suicide style before Dominik erupts with classic Beelzebub throat contortions and Giffoni lays out blankets of loud chattering insect invasion over what has got to be the ginchiest rhythmic base ever eviscerated by Prurient. Levels of fuzz are beautifully eruptive and the second track gets even further into the whole "we're all Frankies/we're all lying in hell" feel.


Important Records Imprec-123


Limited to 500 copies split single with double-sided screen printed jackets and coloured vinyl. Bundles early ultra-primitive material from both groups that makes for an endlessly flippable slab of wax.

Adam Tied To Stone

Blossoming Noise PYG06VIN


Hand-numbered edition of 500 copies LP from Dominik Fernow's power electronics project, already sold-out at source. On 140g green marbled vinyl. Fucked up spastic noise rhythms with dark atmospherics and tool sheds of percussion. Features some of Dom's most hysterical, throat-shredding vocals, double-tracked for maximum malevolence. The side-long opener is a particular blast, just mutilated with feedback and overdriven by the kind of blitzkrieg of multiphonics that levelled Faust's Rien.

Panicsville + Prurient

Rococo Records RCC-0038


Collaboration from US scuzz/noise units Panicsville and Prurient in an edition of 300 copies on opaque red vinyl.

Prurient/Kevin Drumm
All Are Guests In The House Of The Lord

Hospital Productions HOS-201


CD edition of the very limited cassette collaboration between these two modern masters of extreme electronic architecture. But it’s not the 100 mile head-fuck that the combination of these two names might suggest, with long passages of electronics and hand-drums that almost touch on the endlessly still waters of Popol Vuh circa Affenstunde all cut up with portentous narration and glissing drones. Later tracks combine almost Neu Wave-styled Industrial ritual with peaking Penderecki-esque tone annihilation and the sound of heavy machinery dreaming itself.

Nihilist Assault Group
Silent Movie

Hospital Productions HOS-142


Wild document of classic noise action from this alter ego of The New Blockaders featuring Richard Rupenus alongside Dominik Fernow (Prurient) and Ron Lessard aka Emil Beaulieu. Recorded live at the No Fun fest 2006, Silent Movie also comes with a silent DVD of the show that makes for pretty surreal viewing when viewed without the record spinning in the background. DVD also comes with a commentary by G.X. Jupiter-Larsen. Edition of 500 copies.

The History Of Aids

Hospital Productions HOS-79


Vinyl edition of this classic Prurient side recorded in 2000 and originally released by Armageddon. Still some of Fernow’s most bleakly beautiful work, with the friction between the lyrics (which are based around the love poetry of the Persian Sufi mystic Rumi: Coil used his words to similarly disarming effect on Horse Rotovator) and the massively fucked-up nature of the sonics (contorted vocals, fuzz like boulders, fluxing low end thunder) making for a disturbingly personal vision of body horror, disease and redemption. Every Prurient release feels like a working-through of various Fernow fears/obsessions and The History Of AIDS is the process at its most transparent and skeletal. By turns frightening, upsetting and desperately moving; either way, this is a singular release.

Cold Cave/Prurient
Stars Explode

Hospital Productions HOS-266

12” EP

Limited vinyl edition of the Cold Cave/Prurient collaborative UK tour cassette that came out in an edition of 100 copies in 2009 with the addition of a brand new track. Very different in tone from what either group has done before, Stars Explode presents a series of very beautifully slow-moving drone compositions that have all of the ancient tectonic power of Nijiumu’s Era Of Sad Wings. Heavenly choirs of synth vibrate on the very edge of the horizon while arcs of symphonic underwater keyboards bubble to the surface. The beats break through on the third track, a jack-hammer Suicide-style instrumental before breaking into a final track that combines epic/euphoric drone melodies with macabre F/X-contorted vocals. Aspects of Coil, Klaus Schulze, Walter Wegmuller.... but truly its own thing. A major step outside. Highly recommended.

Black Pus
Down Down Da Drain

Skulltones SKT-009


Limited single of raucous free-pop squall from this solo project of Brian Chippendale of Lightning Bolt. “Brian Chippendale replaces the riffs of Lightning Bolt with fried electronics, reeds, and gleeful vocals in the rhythmic pounding pop of the summer on this solo single. This is a split release with the Corleone Record Group of Rhode Island, and strays from the normal Skulltones aesthetic featuring 9 color silkscreen blooming toilet artwork done by the artist himself.” – ST.
