The Sound Of Madness: Prurient

I've just come back from watching Prurient In Manchester, UK.
I was not fully prepared of what to expect of this gig, I've never felt so confused in my entire life? Can somebody explain the allure of Noise?

putrefier, prurient, emil beautriou, jessica rylan, sunroof!

cozen (Cozen), Friday, 19 August 2005 21:37 (fifteen years ago) link

the sound of saneness

cozen (Cozen), Friday, 19 August 2005 21:38 (fifteen years ago) link

i'm fucking shaking. Prurient {the guy} only played for about ten mins before throwing his table of effects over, and storming down the fire exit. The gig was in a bedroom, i've never been to anything like it in my life!
Imagine seeing lightning bolt live? must be mad!

Daws (silver_rocket89), Friday, 19 August 2005 21:46 (fifteen years ago) link

anybody else into this guy? or is it just us two lonely souls.

Daws (silver_rocket89), Friday, 19 August 2005 21:57 (fifteen years ago) link

yup, just you two

I don't like Prurient live much. Overwrought screaming/yelling--it's become predictable for me. Search his "We Set Out In High Spirits" tape and "Troubled Sleep" CD. Those are the keepers.

Purient = noize Rollins

Then there's that tale where someone's ears started bleeding at a Prurient gig.

There's that tale where there was statuatory rape at prurient gig....

Based on the title, I thought sure this would be a Marissa thread.

Forksclovetofu (Forksclovetofu), Friday, 19 August 2005 22:54 (fifteen years ago) link

when did Prurients live show jump the shark?

amon (eman), Friday, 19 August 2005 22:56 (fifteen years ago) link

I've never liked him live.

I'm Hi, Jared Fogle (ex machina), Friday, 19 August 2005 23:26 (fifteen years ago) link

yeah Prurient did look like a arse stroming off through the crowd. I say "crowd", i actually mean "gathering of 15 people".
Emil Beaulieu was decent. he played in boxer shorts and a t-shirt. Times must be hard i guess?

Daws (silver_rocket89), Friday, 19 August 2005 23:49 (fifteen years ago) link

jessica rylan was quality, opposite in attitude and delivery to prurient but just as affecting. home made electronics, and singing.

prurient did the high frequencies and volume that had fingers in ears, i enjoyed it for its own sake - but its a genre thing now.

i love sunroof!s sound - fuzzed up, guitar amped heaven without the ax.

a great gig at the beerhouse - hope theres more than the handful next time.

bedsox, Saturday, 20 August 2005 14:52 (fifteen years ago) link

I liked rylan the best

prurient was prurient

putrefier OK

sunroof! OK

emil nope

d.k33nan seems to curate all this stuff in glasgow

cozen (Cozen), Saturday, 20 August 2005 15:45 (fifteen years ago) link

sorry prurient was puerile

cozen (Cozen), Saturday, 20 August 2005 15:47 (fifteen years ago) link

Its not surprising that he doesn't play out much in his hometown then? :D His record label RULES though. google for "hospital productions".

I'm Hi, Jared Fogle (ex machina), Saturday, 20 August 2005 16:53 (fifteen years ago) link

Has anyone got any pictures of the Mnachester Beer house gig. I noticed a couple of people taking shots. any chance someone could email me a few?

that would be kind

i'm kinda digging the new album by prurient called bermuda drain

skinny puppy revival starts here

missingNO, Monday, 8 August 2011 06:34 (nine years ago) link

synths are really beautiful in this

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bw_JTjb_nNM

missingNO, Monday, 8 August 2011 06:43 (nine years ago) link

i def think this nails a certain vibe w/ more clarity than a lot of the other nu-synth stuff out there at the moment

like the synths aren't being used just as a signifier of "memory" or "loss" or "80s workout video soundtracks" or whatever but are doing what synths were intended to do -- creating new textures, opening new rooms

missingNO, Monday, 8 August 2011 07:49 (nine years ago) link

streaming here btw

http://soundcloud.com/theavclub/sets/prurient-bermuda-drain

lyrics/vocals are kinda fucked on this album

missingNO, Tuesday, 9 August 2011 06:54 (nine years ago) link

hate ear splitting music and think oneohtrix emeralds whatever tangerine dream thing is so dated dusty and boring so I'm glad missingNo declares the trend over but what was I going to say ahh yes I wanted to tell you about this interview on fact. never heard of this guy but the text is interesting. will check youtube after getting some sleep and dreams of skinny puppy meets depeche mode influenced techno made by noise guys.

Bermuda Drain, sounds fittingly like Viakal for the ears. Great stuff!

The Invisible Superstars (dog latin), Monday, 13 February 2012 11:25 (eight years ago) link

Never heard of this guy before, and I have no idea what led me to buy his album, but I'm glad I did.

love this guy

plee help i am lookin for (crüt), Tuesday, 14 February 2012 10:02 (eight years ago) link

Don't really care very much for synthwave or that much industrial, but this si so good.

The Invisible Superstars (dog latin), Tuesday, 14 February 2012 10:08 (eight years ago) link

if you like track 4 you should check out his other albums which are just straight up power electronics

plee help i am lookin for (crüt), Tuesday, 14 February 2012 10:30 (eight years ago) link

check out the Vatican Shadow stuff too

valleys of your mind (mh), Tuesday, 14 February 2012 19:25 (eight years ago) link

I was was pretty surprised to find all of it on Spotify, actually

valleys of your mind (mh), Tuesday, 14 February 2012 19:26 (eight years ago) link

People who like this could do worse than check out the Perc album 'Wicker & Steel'

The Invisible Superstars (dog latin), Tuesday, 14 February 2012 20:08 (eight years ago) link

that is odd! i generally assume cassette-label stuff never finds its way there

Prince Rebus (donna rouge), Tuesday, 14 February 2012 20:14 (eight years ago) link

That Perc album is one of my recent favorites!

I do like this song but it doesn't half sound like the Happy Flowers. Mom! Oh God Mom! I gave the cat some aciiiiiid!

Fucking fantastic but I really love Bermuda Drain. I didn't really want to put this on the Vatican Shadow thread - is that silly? It does sound different. It is dumb to have two threads. Bermuda Drain is ridiculous and awesome.

kraudive, Saturday, 26 October 2013 00:13 (seven years ago) link

I want to hug him.

kraudive, Saturday, 26 October 2013 00:19 (seven years ago) link

Dude, yeah. But calm it.

kraudive, Saturday, 26 October 2013 00:20 (seven years ago) link

vocals kill the vibe imo

four years pass...

'Frozen Niagara Falls' got some deserved love around these parts, but I've not been able to find anything on his new one yet? Or could that be because it's 3 hours long?

Anyway, it's called 'Rainbow Mirror' and it's pretty great, if a huge thing to take in because of it's length. On first listen (on crappy speakers, I know) I'd say it's less noise(y), more dark ambient. Anyone else on dis ting?

As indie ppl experience a moment of collective outrage as Maus + Pink are outed as Republicans, I remain curious about the widespread indifference to Dominick Fernow's promotion of music made by a dude who literally lived with the Nazi who wrote the Turner Diaries. https://t.co/PXBcd2ksOy
