Deadly Verity - The World Of Junk




Deadly Verity was the work of Jing Heng-Tian and Deadly Machine (aka Dr. Machine). Sort of. Jing Heng-Tian is actually a pseudonym of Kei Yokota (before he settled into the more familiar Outermost identity). Dr. Deadly Machine is his drum machine. Gutted that I don't know the make and model because that would make it look like I actually know what I'm talking about. Pisser!

How do you describe Deadly Verity? I don't know that either so I guess that my floundering cover is finally blown. Gloriously deranged is the best attempt that I'm prepared to make. If I tried harder then I'd run out of words and I need some of them for later on today. There are apparently 28 tracks on the tape and I made several valiant attempts to split it before deciding that it was a complete waste of time.

C50 released on Cat Move in 1995.

Fat Elvis - Song For Gentleman




Take this one with a healthy dollop of skepticism.

I've had this in the vaults for ages but haven't found any real information out there. To be honest, it probably originated from a blog that was dead before I realised that it was there. That post carries the jpeg of the Volume Test tape which adds to the confusion. If the date is right then it is the (missing from Discogs) eighth release on Cat Move.

Anyway, prepare a large dose of the condiment of your choice and get ready for a strange mix of stuttering bouncy doom noise and synth-industrial early-mid Ministry.

C10 that was probably released on Cat Move in 1995.

Fat Elvis - Volume Test




Fat Elvis was an apparently short-lived sideline for Kei Yokota (aka Outermost) on bass and throat, "Elvis" on drums and "Zizi" on another bass. Think muffled Swans and distorted Godflesh and you're nearly there ...

C10 released on Kei's Cat Move in 1996.

Whilst we're on the subject, I've re-upped the Doku no Hana tape, the Beware Of This And That 3"cdr, the split tape with Grunt and the double CDr split with Thirdorgan.

Outermost / Flatline Construct - Split




Kei Yakota sharing a tape with Ryan Bloomer! You'll know Ryan from his work in his own name plus as Piss Horn, with Sam McKinley (as Black To Comm and Zenta Sustained) and as roughly 20% of The Endless Blockade. It's really good. Who'd a thunk it?

"No label" C54 released in late 1999 / early 2000.

Dachise / Outermost - ''Sweet & Bitter'' Split




Dachise is Paul Daniel Knowles who you might know better these days as The Digitariat. A great tape full of synth-wash overload and blistering noise.

Gen Ken Montgomery & Chop Shop - Fragment 4

Another issue of ND magazine with a split cassette inside. This one features two artists from New York: Chop Shop, who builds industrial-looking metal "speaker constructions" to blast his noise through, and the legendary Gen Ken Montgomery whose work is too diverse to sum up easily. Released in 1992.

Agog & Zan Hoffman - Fragment 2

ND was a zine about experimental music, published in Texas in the 1990s. Some issues included a cassette tape, like this one from 1990 featuring two American artists who were active in the tape noise underground at the time. The zine featured interviews with each of them and the cassette was split with one artist per side.

Outermost / Pocajontas - Iron Concrete / Red Cat




One side of Kei Yokota's stop start crackle and blast and the otherwise unknown (to me) Pocajontas who start with a bit of easy listening lurve before driving a blowtorch laboratory through the bedroom.

Napalmed - Contrary Collaboration




More unique living room noise. I'm not sure how contrary the collaboration is given that it is Radek Kopel and Martin Holý who were both in Napalmed. Given that the material is from 1998, it might have been before the relationship was formalised.

"Equipments, sound sources & other stuff: pedal effects, microphones, tape deck, video recorder, mix-board, tumblers, crockery, metals, plastics, wooden sticks, paper pipe, green split peas, water, breath, voice, hands, foots and ?"

C60 released on Smell The Stench in 2005.
