Quote from: WCN on January 05, 2022, 03:45:02 AMI find it strange that in a genre/subculture of music so specific and obscure, with such fanaticism and so little documentation or journalism, that people are more interested in hearing an artist talk about food or sex or cars than about what they think about noise, how and why they do it, etc. Aren't there enough outlets that cover such topics? My aim is to provide a full picture of the artist and their work. Of course those things are often a part of that picture and well worth addressing or even exploring, but I know the thought of a great artist like Jaako Vanhalla, who I would really like to know a lot more about, doing an interview where he only talks about tea is irritating to me. No disrespect to Lasse or Personal Best zine (I love his work and appreciate the zine) but this approach smacks of boredom and a flippant attitude to the art-form that is noise.
Quote from: WCN on January 05, 2022, 03:45:02 AMI am not interested in being one of these "podcast-podcasts" where it's all about 2 free thinkers riffing off each other and providing a mind-blowing conversation about "whatever" to the listener. I do want to go DEEPER and learn more about the individual as an artist, but don't want to spend disproportionate amounts of time talking about their childhood or day jobs, unless those turn out to be particularly relevant to their work. Sometimes they are, most of the time they're not. It's also very much about shop-talk for me, and not necessarily providing the most accessibly entertaining conversation to the casual noise fan.
Quote from: WCN on January 05, 2022, 03:45:02 AMI would be extremely disappointed if someone sat down with Joe Roemer for 2 hours and only wanted to talk about "fucking trannies" and not his thoughts on all of the other interesting stuff he has been involved with.
Quote from: Eigen Bast on January 05, 2022, 06:02:12 PMRE: the nature of the discussion, I think we can agree that given how virtually undocumented noise is, any and all contributions to "the culture" build on each other; the idea that 3 podcasts can't exist within a genre, especially when they're all doing something a little difference, is just not right. Hell if you guys like mundanity so much why not start a noise podcast where you ask people who don't even know what noise is what their favorite 5 salad dressings of 2021 are or whatever then run it through a HM-2.

Quote from: Potier on January 05, 2022, 08:35:54 PMI don't know where I come out on the sentiment that there is too little coverage or documentation of noise...after all we live in an era where live performances are streamed, uploaded, recorded and published on Bandcamp or Soundcloud or you name it.
Quote from: Bloated Slutbag on January 06, 2022, 04:16:07 PMDocumentation: presentation, performance, release, laying it out there, doing the thing, possibly to the point of earning the doer acknowledgements both good and less good.Coverage: commentary, criticism, critique, shit-talk, possibly to the point of earning the talker a roemer-blessed tin 'o turd in the mail.The former, yes, plenty. The latter?
