All My Friends, Remembered.
London, 7th October 2017.
It was a great honour to be able to start proceedings on this important night, and whilst we were unfortunate in that the evening clashed with a couple of other events which shared our potential audience, there was in the end a perfectly respectable turn out, and I would like to think that everyone went away heartened by what turned out to be a very special event.
Our scene is one often pigeonholed and pilloried by detractors for its supposed uniformity and unoriginality but each band proved that that couldn’t be further from the truth: my hoary historical ramblings were followed by Annie Stubbs’ hieratic channeling, after which Black Light Ascension gave people a chance to unwind a bit with their sweeping, rhythmic cold wave anthems. Gerechtigkeits Liga then took things left-field again with a succession of brooding ritualistic soundscapes whilst Naevus brought things to a rousing close with their special blend of philosophical brutalism.
But the evening wasn’t just a reflection of the scenes diversity but also, as we had all worked with John for many years, a (small) cross section of the staggering range of his involvement in underground music. Of course it was – rightly for this event – a London-centric and themed concert, but other parts of John’s history and legacy were given cameos by DJ Krackhaus Nihil’s clever selection of John Murphy (& other) classics!
So, a palpable hit! Special thanks to Andrew Trail for organising the event, Mak and Electrowerkz for having faith in it, and to the audience for joining us in our celebration of our friend.

Here we go with the promo of new CD.
this is the video originally shown at Congresso post industriale and United forces of industrial.
It is an excerpt of the first track of the 12″ and CD. EQ is slightly different, but just to give you an idea of the next output.
Tomorrow I will have another announcement of another unexpected release that will be out at the same time.
Second full-length CD of Northern Italy / Southern Swiss power electronic unit CALIGULA031. Recorded in two separate improvised sessions between 2016 and 2017, the first part is composed of 4 long tracks originally published as a very limited 12″, pressed in 100% pure vinyl lathe-cut in 23 copies and a tape, released for Congresso Post Industriale. The album also includes two new original tracks.
Original tracks have been remixed/EQd to better fit CD format.
Between vocal oriented power electronics, highly saturated static harsh noise and real-life samples, this work attempts to describe an ecosystem between human trafficking, gang wars and exploitation.
Co-released between Elettronica Radicale Edizioni and Old Europa Café.

Good evening chaps. I am glad to inform you that I have been recently interviewed for a book edited by the same fellow who used to run the amazing Acephale magazine.
Well, as long I really enjoyed his old effort, this new output exceeded any expectations and the result is a devastating visual assault in full-color, featuring some of my closest allies as well as other respected (anti)artists.
Beware: if you belong to the last generationof “safe & consensual” PC crybabies who would love to see noise as a neverending hug party, you’d better avoid it and go and trim your beard on your bike. Here is what power electronics is really about. Fun at the expense of the others.
The book si something that stands between an art book and a hate zine, featuring in depth rinterviews regarding obsession of the different protagonists, married with artworks and thoughts that show once again “the unacceptable face of freedom” in its finest form.
Very few copies left, so hurry up. Those who asked me for copies should get theirs anyday (unless we get locked in before).
So buy it before Soros seizes it.
I know that Freak Animal has some copies.

Deconstructed Sound, Deconstructed Women – A Word with The Rita
“Have you done any releases you regret, or consider failures?
I try to learn something about the varying directions of drawing abrasive sound directly from the various themes I work with, so it’s difficult for me consider any complete failures. The most important thing I’ve learned is that the obsessive deconstruction of a visceral interest can definitely stare back at you from the abyss – and that’s when things can start really shaking via avalanches of cracking sound.”
Make sure you don’t miss the latest CD “Medora” released with a stunning cover on Old Europa Cafe. I had the honor to wear the clothes of CALIGULA031 for an extensive piece, which marks another step in our ongoing collaboration.
Sam is one of my closes allies at the moment, I appreciate his obsessive attention to detail, concept, both in his minimal textural research and in his more aggressive wall of unconfortable noise.
This whole classic ballet thing goes much deeper than a simple “fetish” related item. It is a sincere anaylsis and declaration of love of one of the finest expressions of the female body in movemen. Something that requires talent, dedication, discipline, notwithstanding the suffering and discomfort of something that only few can manage….
Soundwise, Medora is the confirmation of Sam as one of the real masters of Noise, with a monolithic architecture of devastating waves of analog noise, an intense opera of noise, cutting deep in the skin.
Long live The Rita.
I still have a few copies of Raymonda, feel free to get on touch for your copy and distro.
