M.A.N.K./Screwtape "Eating Shit for Breakfast/They Hate Us" cassette - M.A.N.K. is Casey's (Ebola Disco, etc.) new Harsh Power Electronics project. "Eating Shit For Breakfast" is an unrestrained and uncontained expectoration of crashing and hissing distortion laced with layers of gut-wrenched shouting and screaming - apparently Taoist affirmations calculated to the Chinese year. The Screwtape side, "They Hate Us", was recorded late last year and is based around samples from Hitchock's "The Birds" combined with heavy, static synth tones. The sound of an unoffending, seaside town of nice, normal people being attacked to death by the nature, red in beak and claw, itself.

Undecisive God/Screwtape "RPMs/Shitless" online album - Perhaps the most definitive yet recording of Undecisive God's prepared/shattered vinyl set up, backed up with a Screwtape electronic drone piece in three distinct parts with episodes of noise and android voices. Originally released as a ltd edition of 50 cassettes.

Von Einem/Screwtape cassette - Screwtape's split series continues with Von Einem, Mark Groves new solo noise project that takes its theme and name from a series of murders that took place in South Australia. Screwtape's side is a solid chucnk of distortion and feedback that nearly completely (but not quite) obscures the voice-based samples that lay beneath. Limited edition of 100 copies.

Screwtape "S&M" mini CD - Extremely harsh and loud, sample and feedback-based work that smacks you around the chops the way only Screwtape can.

Clinton Green & Andrew McIntosh "Kasoundi" CD Collaborating originally on The Unnameable project (2002-5), Kasoundi sees the two artists combine their more contemporary interests in minimal, often-acoustic, noise improvisation. Exploring the natural and manipulated sonic properties of a variety of objects and machines (record player, tape deck, rocks, bowls, percussion instruments, kitchen utensils, aluminium foil, broken records), the duo weaves a naturalistic yet compelling series of improvisations that alternate between slow-build tension and luxuriating in these unique sonic textures.

Clinton Green & Andrew McIntosh "Stations" cassette/digital These recordings were made in preparation for the live performance of a piece of the same name, but in this excerpted/recording context it is the sound of a deep curiosity / fascination with the lives of objects. Metal, ceramic, wood are subjected to scraping, bowing and clattering. organic percussive movement emerges and retreats along with prepared / broken turntable accompaniment. Acoustic chamber concrθte. Limited edition of 25 numbered copies.
