Man Is The Bastard / Bastard Noise
The Honesty Shop
For the past 25 years, Bastard Noise has articulated its mission by crafting sheer, primitive “caveman electronics” while exploring a spectral fascination with man’s ridiculous “legend in his own mind’ status and regression through technology. Following over 90 releases to date, enter the brand new full-length LP titled The Honesty Shop. Two long-form compositions at nearly 20 minutes each were custom designed, arranged, recorded, mixed and professionally edited by Michael Rozon (The Red List, A Culture of Monsters, Skulldozer and Rogue Astronaut, to name a few). This time around, the lineup consists of New York-based sound designer / performer Anthony Saunders and founding member Eric Wood. These vast, post-armageddon landscapes are delivered in crystal-clear fashion, accentuated by Wood’s most brutal and extreme vocals to date. Cut by engineer master David Cheppa (NWA, Geto Boys, Black Flag, Kraftwerk, etc.), The Honesty Shop is a must-have for all mutants addicted to hearing more in sound. The LP is packaged in a screen-printed, single-pocket jacket, includes a screen-printed lyrics insert, and is limited to 400 copies.
