"Founded by Survival Research Lab's GX Jupitter-Larsen, the Haters were formed in 1979 and are known as America's premier noise act. They won Best Electronic Experimental Artist in the 2005 LA Weekly music awards. These are brand new studio recordings, two "extra noisy" tracks totaling over an hour. "A lot of what people think is Noise is not. The only true Noise bands I can think of are TNB and The Haters and stuff like that because it has no human element to it whatsoever." (John Olsen of Wolf Eyes)

"Last saturday I witnessed some noise acts, and I was wondering about what they do. The performance element is still a strong focal point, but the sight of half naked men and women, vomiting over a microphone is hardly shocking, unless of course the history of performance art is a serious lack in your knowledge. Music wise there isn't much new either under the sun. Feedback, shouting, toys and electronic toys. Sometimes I think the more effort is put into the performance, the less is done with the music, and vice versa. Mentally unstable youngsters for whom a bunch of noise is awesome, but what does it bring us then? Then on the same day I received a new CD by The Haters, and that exemplifies for me what noise should be, both in terms of music as well as performance art. One long piece of loud noise, and one shorter piece of loud noise. Loud indeed, but the musical aspect is never lost, nor the variation to make an interesting piece. Loops run around in circles, fading in and out, small variations in the frequencies make this a true delight to hear. There is lots of sonic detail, audio richness in this. Performance wise The Haters also do interesting piece, music on tape, and an action that is far beyond the usual spit and shit. That's how these things should be done. I am not lost for the world of noise, but I do have strong reservations against repeated aktionist kunst under the pre-text of art and music. The Haters are one of those rare places where true and original noise can be heard." [FdW / Vital Weekly]
