☼ Nocturnal Emissions - Drowning In A Sea Of Bliss [re-issue]

Originally recorded and released on Sterile Records in 1983, this is a re-issue of NE’s second recording. As such, it offers a historical perspective on the band that was later to give us such works as 'Cathedral' and 'Mouth of Babes.' Sheer violent noise which dissolves back and forth between found sounds, cut-ups and rhythmic, hypnotic beats. Reminiscent of Nurse With Wound and later Throbbing Gristle. An extremely interesting piece of work.

☼ Nocturnal Emissions - Autonomia: The Portland Album

'Autonomia' contains seven similarly constructed pieces, in which a scanned telephone conversation acts as preamble to an extensive electro-acoustic rhythm exercise. Although it was most probably Ayers’ intention to use scanned conversations as mere intermezzos for his own musical exploits, the spoken parts are the real ear catchers on this album. It’s all pretty funny and pleasant to hear, and if you like the atmosphere of Scanner’s works (i'm actually listening to 'Heidi' right now) as well as the more rhythmical side of Nocturnal Emissions, I’m quite positive you will know how to appreciate this release.
