Let's talk about Sutcliffe Jugend. Obviously the early stuff kills(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cADXUdtTX6Y) and helped set the template for PE in general but I've been listening to a lot of their more recent work and its impressive how much musical range there is. Like Blue Rabbit is basically a spoken word album with unsettling autoharp noises behind it(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bTnHQ2FAIP4), Shame from last year wasn't too far from drone metal on the title track(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xQvdVfGhIHY) and there's a 6cd instrumental release that i haven't even touched yet. Not all of the new releases are great but there's some very high quality material overall I think. The lyrics seem to be getting better but also more spiteful as Tomkins gets older too.

i was a fan of bodychoke for ages before i actually checked out sutcliffe jugend. their early stuff is great and i'm really digging some newer songs i listened to on spotify this spring. i really should do a discography run.

here's what i've been jamming: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q92QibNpb0A

peter sotos from whitehouse compiled a tape of abuse victim interviews. produced by steve albini! it's horrible

I turn on my copy of G.R. By Deathpile whenever my neighbors feel like playing reggae or mumble rap really loud. Its some dude screaming Gary Ridgway (Green River Killer) quotes over power electronics for 40 minutes. Its great.

You can too! Whole album:

I always thought it was cool that Deathpile basically did an american take on the comedy aspects of Whitehouse/Sutcliffe Jugend, but the actual noise on G.R. is a bit too monotonous, just low end with not much variation. iirc some of his other releases are more varied soundwise.

Did you guys know the UK is making some cool stuff at the moment. For example, Am Not kicks rear end and I can't wait to see what he comes up with next https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-2_t-_Y2B8

I can't get into anenzephalia for some reason, even though i like genocide organ. a lot of that german heavy electronics stuff is very hit and miss for me even when its well executed and i don't really know why. have you heard Ke/hil? that's another sideproject from genocide organ/anenzephalia guys and i liked it a bit more

i have not, although its the exact same lineup that i saw them perform as under the anenzephalia name a few years ago. i couldnt really get into most of their records either but i really enjoyed their live set and the recording i posted captures that sound more closely than their other releases.

i mentioned facialmess before itt who is now retiring that moniker and recording and performing new material as LIKE WEEDS. only demos for now but it sounds promising to me: https://soundcloud.com/dub-specialist-1

Sounds like he's going for a slower more brooding sound, with field recordings and stuff? sounds cool. What's a good facialmess to check out by the way because I've only heard pig hydraulics.

there are 2 collections of his last few tapes on spotify of all places. some of those tracks are already halfway to what he's doing now and i like those a lot.

I recently finished Fight Your Own War and it was really neat and got me listening to PE and Noise again. I've mostly just been listening to old Macronympha tracks, lots of Government Alpha, and IRM.

I basically took a break from really following new releases in 2012, when Aaron Dilloway, Wolf Eyes, etc were making a huge mess. Has there been anything really interesting lately? Burning Star Core was always a favorite of mine, but it seems like most of the groups I really liked aren't super active anymore.

imo there's basically always interesting stuff coming out but its hard to keep track of all of it because of how diffuse the scene is, so you kinda just have to follow people you already know and hope you hear about other stuff somewhere. Just in terms of newish acts I like, Linekraft, Military Position, Worth, Jaako Vanhala, Am Not and Antichildleague are all worth checking out. lots of long running projects are still doing good stuff too, like for example most of the finnish big names, Bizarre Uproar, Grunt, etc.

Oh cool. So it seems like not much has changed. Looks like Kevin Drumm is still putting out work too! It's heartening that most of my old favorites are still active. I'm especially glad Balistreri/Slogun is still active, they've always been one of my favorite acts in PE by a really really wide margin.

I'm pretty sure Jaako Vanhala will be producing tracks when we are all dead. That dude is crazy prolific. I actually know him more for his Dark Ambient work though, surprisingly.
