Sixth tape out on the Italian label "PISS PINK TAPES" run by Lilian Pelizzari Giust.
This time PPT is going for the release of a monumental classic of "Noise" dated 1983 featuring two early performances.
Originally those recordings were self-released by TNB in a very limited tape.
Finally here comes the tape re-edition dated 2021 in 50 hand-numbered copies.
Here is what prominent labels / zines / artists was writing about those "early noise" recordings >>
''Live At Morden Tower' sees
TNB continue their work with anti-theories, anti-instruments and anti-music.
An abrasive and unrelenting attack where metal scrapes, slams and drags against hissing noise-generators and piercing feedback.
The Blockaders seem to take great joy in dealing with the uncertainty and often precarious nature of live confrontations.'
'My first listening
experience of TNB was 'Live At Morden Tower' in 1983.
I marveled at the unbelievably relentless inaccessible intensity of their sound.
I became fascinated by them.
I became a kind of TNB 'groupie.''
Toshiji Mikawa / Incapacitants
'The cyclone hits and sheets of metal shriek down like rain…
Unrelenting and visceral, it’s a phoenix in its execution and a peacock in its
diversity. Squeaking and rolling, quacking and cajoling, the sound spikes and
spills from the guts of that time and place. These recordings are almost 40
years old and still hold the same power to incite, unnerve and inspire as they
did when they first emerged.'
their audience to a pummeling that even a young William Bennett (Whitehouse)
would have been proud.
Piercing electronics create what can only be described as pure cacophony.
Steel bars get thrown around and nails get hammered into floors.
Full-on brutalism that would lay down the gauntlet for the likes of Merzbow to pick up later.'
