Basically stuff that tends to be rather loud, noisy, raw, strange, wierd, etc..
Hopefully Some Proggers out there will come to like some of the more less polished things in music.
 
 
 
So I'll start this off with a well known figure in the noise circles, Kevin Drumm.
 
Kevin Drumm has worked with many bands and people in avant and experimental scenes, including people such as Jim O'Rourke, Mats Gustafsson, Tony Conrad and many more. Drumm started off his musical journey by messing around with prepared guitars, and from their started to fiddle around with more experimentation with guitars and electronics.

Not sure if you've listened to him, but Merzbow is really great.

Merzbow is beginner's noise. Try some C.C.C.C. and Cherry Point.

Theres going to be some Prog on here.Tongue  Nothing that purists think is Prog though.
 
 
Also, The Cherry Point is great too. One of (if not) the harshest noise bands out there.

I've got nothing better to do on a friday night. So I'll post another favorite noise maker of mine. Let me introduce you to Masahiko Ohno, better known as Solmania, who has garnered a cult status in the japanoise scene, with his guitar based noise freakouts, putting to shame the noise-y guitar freakouts of Fred Frith and Arto Lindsay.

Today's blog is going to be about a favorite band of mine, and to celebrate their inclusion into the Archives, Ashtray Navigations. http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=7415
 
 
And, a review for Pearls.. 
 
"Imtriprovisation.

Ashtray Navigations is the main project of Phil Todd, who makes noisy psychedelic improvisation that has strong krautrock connotations to it.

Those Are Pearls That Were His Eyes is the umpteenth release by AN, and is in keeping with their style of long drawn psych wonderings. This album consists of one nearly fifty minute "song" consisting of nothing but oure trippyness. It starts out with a Nurse With Wound influence, with what could easily random pots, pans, spoons, and other assorted kitchenware, being banged around at random, set against an ambient backdrop of a recording of birds and light and airy synth dronings. As the song progresses, the kitchenware goes away, and gets replaced by some guitar dronings and scratches, with the ever constant airy synths. This rather noisy section then suddenly transitions into some lone, floating type guitar playing.

This album is not for the casual Prog fan, but for fans of the noisy side of Psych and Kraut, this album is a treat."

 
 
Happy Trips!Thumbs Up

no, it's Atomsmasher, there is a mistake in the title. I have a hard copy of the album. Phantomsmasher is the follow-up to James Plotkin's project Atomsmasher.
