Prurient: C/D

fernow's set at this year's subcurrent was my fave - i thought his whole schtick/performance was totally compelling conceptually sound and scary, very powerful in all sorts of ways - but he gets TWO bad live reviews in this month's Wire - so i wondered what the noize brigade here thought - esp. keen to hear abt other performances by prurient you may have seen, or what recs by him you wld suggest i dig

honestly the couple times i saw him i was back of whatever room it was, and wasn't paying attention. so, it's not that compelling?

wow maybe he was quieter when you saw him i dunno, i expect you've seen a lot more of this shit than i have hstencil, but just volume-wise his music seemed hard to ignore that night in glasgow - chris corsano was standing in front of me and he was wearing plugs the pussy - prurient performed w/ his back to the audience, miles davis style

same review of subcurrent in the wire also disses dilloway's solo perf which again i enjoyed but truly was VERY loud in places - by way of a climax he seemed to just unleash this huge bass throb that made the ceiling shake, awesome

his best work is the "we set off in high spirits" tape. of his more available stuff, i'm a fan of the CD on Truculent, "Troubled Sleep."

Haven't heard his stuff on Load though, aside from the Kites split which I sold back.

I like the history of aids.

loud doesn't impress me.

i'd rather corsano kept his hearing so he can play more drums.

i was just kidding abt corsano being a pussy

The new album Bermuda Drain is quite good . Really different from his previous releases and kinda what I wished Cold Cave sounded like...

Been loving Bermuda Drain tonight. He has a lot of records. What else has the same elegiac, symphonic synth sound?

Cos I've heard a lot of the earlier noise stuff and I'm not as much of a fan of that. It has its place but Bermuda Drain really sounds beautiful.

This isn't ILM! ooooh.

the new record on blackest ever black, "trough the window", is the one to listen if you like BD.

I listened to part of the Prurient one and it's definitely music to play in your house as you pass out candy to trick-or-treaters on the porch lol
