> CONSUMER ELECTRONICS, CONTENT NULLITY, CEMENTIMENTAL, JfK – Live in London, 25 May 2013
– CONSUMER ELECTRONICS
This will be a rare outing of the full band line-up, featuring Philip Best, Sarah Froelich, Gary Mundy (Ramleh/Broken Flag Records), and Anthony di Franco (Ramleh/Ethnic Acid/JfK).
This is violent electronic music. A writhing, wriggling, repugnant beast slithering forth in an amoral haze of sex and leather, extreme fetishes and fear. The stranger in the park your mother warned you about. No compassion, no remorse. A deafening torrent of feedback and high end squeals; scraping away at your brain, providing the soundtrack to your overwhelmed senses, your confusion, as stream-of-consciousness aggression rains down on your pretty little head. Co-opted by cunts. Always.
Come on, come clean.
– CONTENT NULLITY
Content Nullity is dead end power electronics.
At the absolute forefront of the new generation of dark, slow-burning, unforgiving, artists for whom integrity is everything.
Catharsis through scrap metal, entertainment through despair. Content Nullity leaves you drained, emotionless, dead behind the eyes. Nothing matters. Nullity is absolute.
Have you ever been on the internet? Then you know Tim Drage/Cementimental.
Over a decade of dedication to harsh noise absurdism has led to the “hardest working man in showbusiness” rightly staking his claim as the most recognisable face in the UK noise scene today.
I’d love to tell you what to expect on the night, but i’ve got no idea. Could be harsh noise, gabba, musique concrete, chiptune, circuit bent rough music, minimal, maximal… Whatever it is, it’ll be pure entertainment with the best hair this side of a L’oreal advert. You owe it to yourself to be there, because you’re worth it.
JfK is one of the many solo projects of Anthony Di Franco (Ramleh/Ethnic Acid).
JfK’s sound relies on drum loops to create a pummeling, unrelenting, near-psychedelic, proto-industrial ‘groove’, before melting in and out of swamps of feedback, abrasion, static and noise to ensure you never get complacent or comfortable.
A much welcomed double LP re-issue/compilation of JfK’s late 80s work, ‘Teenage Fantasy 1987-88’, was jointly released last year on Harbinger Sound/Hospital Productions.
