More Info

"The eighth in Zelphabets new series of 26 alphabetically oriented compilations of noise. Volume H makes its mark with cuts from heavyweights HANATARASH, HATERS, HALALCHEMISTS, and HOWARD STELZER." [label info]

" 'H' opens with Halalachemists, of whom I never heard (this series also knows where to find interesting new names), who play a 'live TNB tribute' in Newcastle, recorded in 2006. Or perhaps its the New Blockaders in disguise? The piece is quite noise based, from a more low end perspective, with sounds banging around, and distortion pedals pushed through the stage. Hanatarash offer a very interesting piece of noise music, high end white static, being processed a bit, but quite minimal still. Its quite reduced, so not viciously loud, but nevertheless a great noise piece. The Haters are also present here with 'Explosion 2009' and its along the same line as 'Explosion 2008' - a conceptual joke. Howard Stelzer closes 'H', with what seems to be his current tools of trade: the densely layered manipulations of analogue cassette sounds. Field recordings are stapled onto eachother, and form a dense pattern. Half way through it seems to collapse a bit, but Stelzer gets his act back and makes a
great finale. Intelligent noise all around." [FdW / Vital Weekly]
