jazkamer / mark durgan “split” seven inch single record
- jazkamer - tonal protest (6:59)
- mark durgan - the roots of beech trees wrapped in moss (5:51)
|april 2008 release ; split single by jazkamer (the time-tested lasse marhaug / john hegre lineup here augmented by moha! / noxagt’s anders hana) & mark “putrefier” durgan ...|
jazkamer’s side : a crispy room-recording of guitar/electronic banshee-wail - exactly what you love/expect from these guys ... but, for me at least, the real treat / surprise is mark durgan’s side : an almost musique-concrète study using cracked electronics, bird-sounds, and the kind of anti-music moves he undoubtedly picked up whilst collaborated with richarn “tnb” rupenus (aside from the lovely & o/p birthbiter lp, mark was one of the shadowy figures who fleshed out the tnb ranks @ atp a few years back ...)
this no-fi 7” series is one of the best things going @ the moment ... a bit on the pricey side, yes, but so worth it ...

another vital instalment in no-fi’s growing and collectable vinyl catalogue, this 7” sees the head-on collision of two major acts in the european noise circuit.
norway’s jazkamer is the electronics and guitar duo of lasse marhaug and john hegre, best known for their ‘metal machine music’ death metal concept album but also for the searing blasts of electricity that typify their more noise-oriented work. marhaug is a major figure in international noise, well-known for having more releases to his name than many people have in their collections. for this release, they also recruit fellow norwegian and multi-tasking guitar-mangling prodigy anders hana (noxagt, moha!) - as if they needed any help to kick out the jams on this jawdroppingly raucous live recording.
in contrast, the flip side features something significantly more serene from mark durgan (who you may also know as putrefier and who is rumoured to have been part of the mystery line-up of the new blockaders at thurston mooore’s all tomorrows parties). subsonic rumbles and birdsong dominate the surface of this track, but the devil’s in the detail – poke your attention through the thin surface ice and you’ll easily fall through to hidden depths.
this is another of no-fi’s trademark hand-stamped jukebox sleeve 7”s, with stunning centre label art by lasse marhaug.
great to look at, amazing to listen to !
