This was only £4 on amazon, so it seemed rude not to get it. First listen, and 2 minutes in there's lots of epic chant and clattering - no geetar yet.

I love that album. With the exception of the vocals and general heaviness of it I wouldn't call it black metal at all. I don't even think there's any guitars on it. It's more like an extreme version of The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud.

I’ve been in a huge Velvet Underground mood today and this is obviously hitting the spot:

Well here you go anyway since I was uploading for algroth. It's 320kbps mp3 but if you want higher quality I can do so.

Thanks, as well. :D

Yeah, I'm listening to it again right now at home on decent headphones. It's a properly epic sound, the only guitars are kind of Sunn 0))) esque, dredging away in the background, as big SPK-style clumps and thuds crash across some kind of fractured orchestral backing. I had no idea Gnaw Their Tongues was a single person either, looking at RYM he's got about 15 pseudonyms he's also recorded under, I only knew of Seirom, and I thought that must've been a collaboration.

That's a pretty good live album, considering the era of VU, but I have to say, I absolutely hate that cover art. One of the worst in my entire collection.

Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

Yeah, I have to hide the cover on my iPad when playing this at work. It’s such an ugly cover for a great live recording.

Genuinely terrible artwork concealing one of Killing Joke's better post-reunion albums. Still can't believe that it's the same artist responsible for those great early covers.

Jandek - Shadow of Leaves

'Difficult', miserablist solo Jandek from 2004, featuring Sterling's improvisation on a fretless detuned bass.

Oh I much prefer Jandek when he's in commercial funster mode. His cover of 'Sugar Sugar' is a joy.

This is where I should get my anorak on and point out that actually, Jandek only ever recorded one cover version, and that was of House of the Rising Sun, on his magnum opus Blue Corpse. Which is miserable, but has some technically competent musicians. But there's levels of difficulty, you know, you feel you've achieved something if you've managed to sit through a bunch of fretless bass improv and toneless wailing.

Anyway, I've moved on from this and am NOW PLAYING:

Thule - Wheel

Which is some obscure indie album from 1990. I really loved their second album, 321 Normal 2, but can't remember listening to this more than a couple of times.

This still sounds amazing today, just as futuristic and cool as when it first came out in the middle of the UK dubstep hype.
