02/01/16: New Releases on Absurd Exposition / New Arrivals and Restocks from Clandestine Compositions and Freak Animal

Two new tapes out now on Absurd Exposition

ANDREW NOLAN - We Know Now What a Modern Society Can Do with a Parking Lot CS

Performing noise over the years under such monikers and in such projects as DEATH AGONIES, JOSHUA NORTON CABAL, WINDSCALE and more recently SCALP ELEVATOR and WOLVES OF HEAVEN, Andrew Nolan is a name perhaps most synonymous with bands such as THE ENDLESS BLOCKADE and COLUMN OF HEAVEN. Although the aforementioned projects can all be regarded with at least some degree of abrasiveness, this tape, the first under his own name, is decidedly not harsh noise. Field recordings from construction sites and other intriguing locales around Toronto coupled with bits that are no doubt inspired by the early works of German electronic composers such as KLAUS SCHULZE or those in CLUSTER. 23-odd minutes of that. Edition of 99.

SUBSIST - Crisis CS

Power violence is over. Second tape. Noise accompaniment by BURROW OWL. Written Fall 2013 in Vancouver. Recorded Summer 2015 in Montreal. Edition of 101.

01/01/16: The Year in Review / ***25% OFF SALE ON NOW***

2015 was a largely uneventful year for the distro. I essentially took the last 6 months off, and the 6 months before that were quite casual. The Canadian dollar dropped into and continues to be in such a dire state that I had to do some assessing and decide if I wanted to keep doing this. It took me a while, but I decided that I do want to. There will be a slight shift in focus, in terms of stock (and a lot of old stock is currently on sale as a result), but new stuff will be coming in shortly.

It was also a slow year for Absurd Exposition, which isn't out of the ordinary. Put out two tapes, one that had been on the back burner for a couple of years, and one that ended up being in my year end list. There will be a couple new releases coming right off the bat this month. More info on those when the time comes.

Personally, 2015 was a relatively good albeit confusing, stressful, and weird year. Which I suppose makes it just like any other. I'm living alone for the first time in years. My partner and I split up after a lengthy time together. I did a zine for the first time in over 7 years. I put on a couple shows. I played (and continue to play in) a few bands. Being a part of SAW MASS may have been the best band experience I've had to date. I'm sad that it's over and I really hope we can salvage our recordings who's masters were taken from us and sent into the cosmic void. We finally did a proper recording of 2-year-old SUBSIST material and had it exceed expectations. The tape will be out soon. I still work at a record store. Friends continue to come and go, but it's been a good year for making new ones and becoming better friends with old ones. I flew back to the west coast for the first time in about a year and a half. It was surreal flying back to Montreal and calling it home. This is a good city with good people. Here's to (at least) a couple more years in this zone.

I've gathered year-end-list contributions from a few friends and acquintances over this past week. They have been posted below in order of submission, beginning with my own entries. I tried to get a varied mix of people involved and while there are several items that appear on multiple lists (perhaps these are the true 'best' things from 2015?), everything here is interesting and worth your time investigating. Thanks to everyone who contributed. I look forward to the year ahead.

Taylor Geddes (Absurd Exposition / Scream & Writhe)

I sent a list of my favourite tapes of the year over to Ryan to post on the Anthems of the Undesirable website. He's also collected a few lists from folks this year, so it's worth a look, but I have also included the list here for posterity.

Ryan Stoner (Anthems of the Undesirable)

We released a record together. We both run distros and labels. We are kin.

Best EPs and tapes of the year:

- Ajax, s/t 7” (Beach Impediment)
    The best American emulation of Totalitar to date. Excellent Scandinavian styled hardcore without defaulting to inane d-beat.
- Blazing Eye, “Ways to Die” CS
    I loved the demo and last year’s 7”, these four songs are the logical continuation of one of the best punk bands in America today.
- Gas Chamber, “Stained Hand” 7” (SPHC)
    The best band in the world right now. This 7” sits between their flawless LP “Hemmorhaging Light” and the 2011 EP “Modern Vision of The Erect Nightmare” in terms of their best work.
- G.L.O.S.S. – Demo
    Arguably the most important hardcore band in America right now, but the thing is, it’s with damn good reason. Four tracks of impassioned, excellent hardcore: Snotty, pissed, appropriately tight, and full of vitriol that most straight, white, cis-males will never be able to match.
- Holy Money, “Zygote CS and s/t 7” (RSR)
    Last year’s “EGODEATHSLUDGE” demo showed promise, and the Zygote cassette delivered on it. Druggy, noisy hardcore with a mid-90’s vibe and vocals that remind me of Burning Witch. The 7” on RSR is equally good, but I revisit “Zygote” more largely due to its greater length.
- Left Cross, “Infernal Assault” Demo
    My favorite band to spawn from Richmond in a handful of years. Swedish styled death metal from members of Unsacred, Vorator, and probably other bands I didn’t realize. Definiitely looking forward to seeing whatever else these metal-punks do next.
- Noise Drone Mass, “Maladjustment” CS (Shrouded Recordings)
    A C-46 focused on feelings of rejection, being a social outsider, and contemplation of suicide. Not unlistenably stark, but not blandly ambient or meandering. Thusfar my favorite release from Shrouded Recordings, one of the most unique and underappreciated lalbels putting out noise releases in 2105.
- Radiation Blackbody, “Maximum Entropy and The Nearly Black Object” 7” (Nerve Altar)
    What is there to know? Excellent band continues to be excellent. Psychedelic grindcore with Man Is The Bastard and Suppression tendencies. They will continue to dominate so long as Joshua and Joel play together.
- Radioactive Vomit, “Rat’s Flesh” 7” (Vault of Dried Bones)
    Why is this record impossible to wholesale stateside? This was supposed to have come out late last year but was delayed several times – greatness ought not to be rushed. Vicious and frantic ross-bay d-beat. Shrieking death and animosity.
- Swallowing, “Songs for The Saved” CS (Outsider Exsitence)
    Everything I love about Pig Heart Transplant, Khanate, Old Man Gloom, and early Swans in one place. I cannot wait to see what this band does in 2016. US version of this cassette will be out on Anthems in the coming weeks.

Vanisle Jay (Flat Teeth / Vile Intent)

Another top human that I'm glad to have as a friend. He plays in some great bands to boot.

Dan McGregor (Lotus Fucker / SPHC)

The amount of work this guy does for DIY punk is outstanding. Don't ever stop.

Top 10 Records of 2015:

1. Tetsu Array - IV CD (Japan) on Break The Records
        The shining star record of the year for me. The one that I listened to every day. The one that I couldn’t stop talking about. Might be too “rock” for wimps and hipsters but this is the true sound of 30 years of fighting spirit and dedication to hardcore punk. Best record by the best band, masters of their craft.
2. Warhead LP (Japan) on 540
        The other shining star record of the year. All of the above hype applies here too, except I guess more like 25 years, and more “ripping” than “rocking”.
3. Daily Ritual LP (Singapore) on 4490
        While I seem to own every Autistic Youth and Estranged record, I was never a big fan of that melodic PDX punk style. It always seems a tad dry to me. Frankly I think this record is the best record ever in this style and was the surprise hit of the year for me, so much so that I’ve sorted an American pressing on SPHC for 2016. While the three-guitar attack allows for some juicy melodic interplay, Daily Ritual outclass their elders and peers simply by writing better songs and crafting better riffs.
4. Butcher LP (USA) that was self-released
        The first American-made hardcore record in a few years that has made me feel something.
5. Royal Headache LP (Australia) on What’s Your Rupture?  
        The only record that made me forget about the Radioactivity LP.
6. Suffer Damage LP (Belgium) that was self-released
        I don’t think anybody was paying attention but this record was such a breath of fresh air for me. I felt such a relief upon hearing it. I felt like, wow, punk can still be cool! I didn’t know! Imagine 90’s Euro crustcore style like Hiatus or Infecjka, with the songwriting and musicality of Disorder. Nobody plays like this anymore and I really wish they did!!!
7. Long Knife LP (USA) that was self-released
        “Dressing Up a Drunk” is proof that this band has truly mastered Feel The Darkness LP, which is a notable accomplishment in and of itself.
8. The Elsinores LP (USA) on IFB
        If this band was from NYC or Chicago or whatever, they’d already be signed to some major indie. Instead they are KY’s greatest kept punk secret. Hipster try-hards wish they could write songs like this.
9. The Carnival EP (Finland) on Krypta
       Totally solid band that just happened to release the best traditional Finnish-style hardcore record of the last few years.
10. Sheer Mag EP (USA) on Katorga Works
        Even I like this band.
11. The Warden EP (USA) on Lumpy
    Kieltolaki LP (Finland) on Feral Ward
    DHK/Wanuy split 12” (Peru) on Odio Los Discos
        Special mention to bands that continue to make high-quality hardcore punk records that do not play into to any current trends that I do not particularly care for (playing slow, trying too hard to be soooo crrrazzyyyy, etc etc) and keep to a more classical notion of hardcore that I do care for quite deeply: to make short, fast, loud punk music with DIY ethics and political awareness.

Top 10 Live Bands of 2015:

1. Sun Children Sun (Japan)
    A punk experience unlike any other. One of my favorite live bands of all time.
2. Muerte (Mexico)
    I can’t really get into the record anymore because these songs are just too damn powerful when you watch the guys performing them with your own two eyes. When a group of talented punk musicians play together, having mastered their craft and honed their approach into the most finely crafted hardcore songs of 2015…it is just beautiful.
3. Noise (Brazil)
    Absolute brutality. THIS IS NOISECORE !!!!
4. The Cabbageheads (USA)
    Most improved band of the year!!! I have always liked The Cabbageheads but they have graduated from “a solid noise punk band that I like as a fan of noise punk” to “a great punk band that I like because they are great”, if you know what I mean. What energy! What spirit! They’ve always been a loose band, now they are super tight but when you play with so much reckless abandon and have that much uncontrollable energy and aggression flowing out of you, it can come across as being loose no matter what you do.
5. Academic Worms (Brazil)
    Surprise band of the year!! I was excited to see them but nothing could prepare me for this experience! Total, complete, and utter chaos, in all the glory and charm that such a performance could bring. Only a few bands I’ve seen are able to channel this kind of emotion and create such an environment…Godstomper, Thieving Bastards, Cunts…obviously I asked AW to do a record on SPHC!!!
6. Gas Chamber (USA)
    True artists and possibly the best hardcore band in America right now.
7. The Wankys (UK)
    It’s awe-inspiring that a group of guys in their 40’s/50’s, doing this band for almost 10 years, can still keep getting better and better.
8. The Coltranes (USA)
    The springtime of youth!! Super powerful and intense live performances, unhinged, crazy, rabid…a lot of people try really hard to be this kind of performer but if you have to try, if you have to force it, it’s so lame. When it’s a natural expression of the self…that’s a different story.
9. Industrial Holocaust (Brazil)
    Perfection.
10. Thisclose (Scotland)
    A true rock and roll experience. This band has worked hard to refine their craft, matured nicely, and have blossomed into the band they were always meant to be. Their LP is probably the best record I released this year.
11. Globsters (USA)
    The only American punk band that actually matters.

05/12/2015: New Release on Absurd Exposition / New Arrivals and Restocks

CROWN OF CERBERUS - Her Majesty's Funeral CS out now on Absurd Exposition

Of all M. Chami's current projects (DISGUST, KOUFAR, TERROR CELL UNIT) CROWN OF CERBERUS is his most contemplative and reserved. Gracefully ascending tape loops and manipulations of classical sources giving rise to serene melodies in celebration of the feminine form. On "Her Majesty's Funeral" things play out with a slightly darker tone: the cover art (Moritz von Schwind's 1850 work "Wie die Thiere den Jager begraben", translating to "As the Animals Bury the Hunter" - or "The Hunter's Funeral"), which served as inspiration for the third movement of Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 1 in D major (circa 1887-1888), acts as the centerpiece and reflects the solemness throughout Chami's material.

Edition of 50 copies with a 4-panel spread of the artwork.

04/27/15: Website Back Online / New Release on Absurd Exposition / New Arrivals and Restocks

It's been over 4 months but the website is finally back online. There are some minor design changes to be made but everything should be fully functional and ready to accept orders. Thanks for your patience these long months. The Canadian dollar is still doing poorly so new arrivals continue to be slow for now, but will pick up again as time goes on.

THE RITA / WORKER CS

THE RITA's place in harsh noise was established long ago. On this release McKinlay continues the crumbling static assault on Egyptian and Roman themes. On the flip-side, WORKER, who has been grinding scrap metal and contact mics for the past several years, channels his inner INCAPACITANTS with a lengthy 'As Loud As Possible' barrage. Two staples of Vancouver harsh noise together at last.

Edition of 101 copies. Both sides recorded in 2013. Co-release with What Is Making Us Sick.

Stream it here: https://absurdexposition.bandcamp.com
