Great two-fer on this one. First up is Hanatarash destroying the room live in 82' for about 25 minutes. The second half is a mix of jungle/exotica tracks "Selected & Disk Raped" by Naohiro Ukawa & Toru Tershima.

Released on Klaxon in 2006. Recorded in 2005. Magnificent CanAm pairing, The Rita delivers thick walls of static noise that shift like tectonic plates. In between the sheets of sound Bone Awl supply their brand of raw and vicious black metal. The concept is brilliant, with BA's songs forcing themselves through the maelstrom that The Rita provides. A "split" in the best possible sense.

Matador Records 1996
The brothers Dennis and Jimmy Flemion formed The Frogs in the early 80s. Their destructo rock sounds coupled with some of the best lyrics in the biz make this one a winner. Just a warning, nothing is sacred on this album.

Released in 2002 on the Memphix label, Dante Carfagna put this one together, and it's a monster. Somber yet uplifting, with big beats and sound bites that run around and chase each other. Neighborhood and bird themes are repeated throughout.
Mr. Carfagna also produced some of Professor Griff's solo work in the early 90s. He is currently running the Ohio Soul Recordings site that is archiving soul, funk, and R & B records made in Ohio after 1965.
