the noise made by people

It's pretty apparent to most folks right now that there's a lot of experiments happening on the noise terrain. Most artists use layers that are so distortion-laden that they're deemed unlistenable by the majority. The popularized groups & their indie rock run-off also tends to lessen the credibility of the genre in the eyes of critics and mainstream audiences.

However, those who prefer their dissonance shaken, not watered down, need not worry about the approval of the upper crust. This means us. Me, you and anyone with a patient ear who can appreciate the unexpected headway being made by the "free-form" sounds of the outsider. Those who are often satisfied looking like this..

The static right now,

the dreamy :

Fuck Buttons - Sweet Love For Planet Earth

the raw :
Prurient - Live in Detroit 2003

the legendary :
Boredoms - Live @ ATP 2005

& the damn good :
Black Dice - Cone Toaster
