v/a - like a frog in winter - lp + 7" set
i started putting this compilation together in 2004 while residing in providence. at that time the climate of noise was rather hi-fi, technological, and cold. this was the start of noise as entertainment rather than entertaining. personal communication became lost. noise became something clean. something stimulating.
in response i started putting together a list of new bands at the time that i felt represented a more psychological, minimal, dismal, and rejected feeling that to me was one of a fire place having smoldered out after a night of burning.
aside from the sound i wanted to see a return to the fetishistic and erotic attitude of noise... and a negative one at that.... again in response to what i saw as a call for positive noise.
i asked the artists to think about the theme of inevitability. of being unable to escape ones own attractions and being slaves to desire. each one approached this topic differently and sometimes in very contradiction to the theme as you will see. many of these artists have continued on to establish themselves while others have vanished into the ether. however this is the terms upon which this work came forth to offer again a refreshingly negative perspective on this human game we play called life.
compiled on lp and seven inch set with mini poster.
