PRIMITIVE ISOLATION TACTICS – We Are Flaming and on Fire C20 is out now on Oxen.

“Taylor Geddes (Scream & Writhe) as Primitive Isolation Tactics guides ominous, unrelenting dissonance soaking in a fervent surging foulness of harsh noise. Meticulous in his calculated bedlam, Taylor gives us a merciless and squalid beating of essential euphoric breakthroughs into a disorienting, surging harsh noise reverse gravity. The universe’s trend toward disorder is a fundamental law which says that any system can only move from more to less ordered, and that the chaos or disorder of a system, it’s entropy can never decrease.”

Assembled this past spring during the height of the Merzcast when many of us were feeling reinvigorated and excited about Merzbow and harsh noise in general. This has all the same elements as last year’s tape, Past Spheres and Present Circles, just turned up a few notches. Many thanks to Matt for wanting to get this out there and for releasing it alongside the indomitable forces of FORM HUNTER and SCATHING.

Available from myself, oxen-label.com and likely fine distributors known to carry Oxen titles.

RUSALKA and MK9 are currently on tour in the US. MK9 has copies of the recently-released Contaminants CS, and RUSALKA has limited artist edition copies of the upcoming Base Waters LP which will be officially released later this year.

9/21/19: Four new releases on Absurd Exposition

  • BLOOMER – Battle’s Sign CS
    Operating as FLATLINE CONSTRUCT as well as his own name since the late 90s, Ryan Bloomer is someone that should be synonymous with Canadian harsh noise. His Trauma Tone label and custom-built noise devices solidified his status in the genre’s canon of the 2000s. Alongside his solo efforts on various legendary labels such as Harsh Head Rituals, New Forces, Self Abuse, Troniks, etc. Bloomer has worked in various collaborative projects with the likes of Dominick Fernow (PRURIENT) and Sam McKinlay (THE RITA). Now with a re-adoption of the BLOOMER moniker, ‘Battle’s Sign’ delivers an extremely satisfying barrage of crumbling decay and ranks high as a personal favourite under the Absurd Exposition banner.

    Edition of 110 pro-dubbed on white tapes with one-sided pad-printed labels. Includes download code. Stream/download.

  • MK9 – Contaminants CS
    For the past fifteen years Michael Nine, the man behind the infamous DEATH SQUAD, has been taking a more sonically-subdued, but no less intrusive, approach to showcasing the weightiness of the human condition through his project MK9.

    The varying scenes of post-apocalyptic deconstruction and barrenness found throughout ‘Contaminants’ are interchangeably representative of a dead and dying world and a mind being slowly crushed under that weight or, perhaps moreso, a mind being crushed under the weight of its own self.

    Tethered to the constants of self-annihilation. A radioactive sunset is always on the horizon.

    Edition of 101 pro-dubbed on beige tapes. Includes download code. Stream/download.

  • THE RITA – Sharks and the Female Form CS
    The aesthetics and patterns of a woman’s physical form violently and tragically manipulated in the arts.

    A revisit of classic sharks/women fetish themes and crackling walls synonymous with THE RITA.

    Originally released in 2018 by Old Europa Cafe as a special limited edition of 39 copies, Absurd Exposition is happy to work with OEC to reissue this in a more accessible standard edition.

    Edition of 100 pro-dubbed on black tapes with one-sided pad-printed labels. Includes download code. Co-released with Old Europa Cafe. Stream/Download.

  • TASKMASTER CS
    At long last, TASKMASTER finds his way to Absurd Exposition.

    An oft-revered project operating in the harshest realms of Canadian noise for nearly fifteen years now. This latest offering provides two variations on a theme… where the theme is dragging your own face across burning asphalt for a quarter of an hour – only stopping to turn the other cheek and repeat the process before throwing yourself into the abyss where none but the filthiest, ugliest, most horrendous dark entities can exist.

    Coming off of a recent tape on FTAM Productions, as well as last year’s split with KAKERLAK on Narcolepsia, this is a much-welcomed increase of activity.

    Edition of 103 pro-dubbed on blue-tinted tapes. Includes download code. Artwork by Claudia Burneo. Stream/download.
