The New Blockaders, Grinder-without-Organs, The Theatrical Panopticon

The Stage As Antiworld (2CD)

Label: Cold Spring

Format: 2CD

Genre: Experimental

Preorder: Releases June 21st 2024


This double CD set includes an extended collaboration between The New Blockaders & Grinder-without-Organs, and two live recordings of anti-theatre premiered at Cafe OTO (London, UK) and Audio Foundation (Auckland, NZ). The set also includes a link to access a bonus film and extra, printable material.

CD1 features 'Ein Glücklicherer Zufall: Genau Zu Lang (A Happier Accident: Exactly Too Long)', an hour-long, part studio / part live collaboration between seminal anti-music stalwarts The New Blockaders, and purveyors of the absurd Grinder-without-Organs. 'Ein Glücklicherer Zufall...' shows a different side to TNB's trademark obliterating noise offensives with a more collaged, musique concrète approach and includes a pre-Cafe OTO TNB & G-w-O show soliloquy. CD2 includes G-w-O live at London's Cafe OTO, "Showcasing a singer who has no voice, musicians who have no instruments, and a bandleader who has no direction". CD2 concludes with The Theatrical Panopticon, "A stage play performed inside a void and infected with accidental somniloquies".

Fans of Noise music will need no introduction to the work of TNB. Ron Lessard, of legendary US Noise label RRRecords, once stated, "I'd give the nod to TNB as being the first truly devoted Noise artists". TNB served as a major influence on legendary Noise pioneers such as Merzbow and their influence on the current crop of popular crossover Noise artists such as Wolf Eyes is immeasurable.
