Death Magazine 52 / Death Magazine 52 / 2 x Vinyl LP / Harbinger Sound / harbinger078
"Between 1982 and 1984 Death Magazine 52 played around 20 shows mostly within the Black Country region of the U.K. Sometimes they played under the name Spontaneous Human Combustion which was the moniker they originally started out with. These recordings capture the core group and its floating membership at various stages of their existence. Recordings from the studio sessions and live sets, including playing to a school hall full of teenage girls at 3pm one afternoon, and as the final band to play at the legendary Equinox Event before the plugs got pulled and the police arrived. The recordings are of a raw nature and should be considered as historical documentation." - Harbinger Sound."
Consumer Electronics / Dollhouse Songs / Vinyl LP / Harbinger Sound / harbinger152
Punk/electro/techno-noise trio Consumer Electronics return with an album of all-new studio material, following on from last year's acclaimed "Estuary English" LP and this year's "Repetition Reinforcement" 12" on Diagonal. Housed in a sleeve featuring stunning cover artwork by Tokyo-based artist Trevor Brown, "Dollhouse Songs" further chronicles frontman Philip Best's trawl through the seedy thoroughfares of crumbling Tory Britain. "Learn Your Fucking Place" sneers Best in trademark-style, aping the austerity mongers of Britain's current right wing junta. Ably assisted on dark cracked electronics by Sarah Froelich and stunningly produced by noise/beat guru Russell Haswell, this latest instalment in CE's state-of-the-nation polemics is sure to be keenly anticipated. Featuring seven new studio tracks, 'History Of Sleepwalking', 'Knives Cut', 'Condition Of A Hole', 'Nothing Natural', 'The Push', 'Colour Climax' and 'Murder Your Masters' (the last track previously surfacing briefly as an ultra-rare gig only 7"), CE now features a twin vocal attack from the Best/Froelich husband-and-wife team, a furious tide of words spat out over a chaotic spew of mangled beats, bracing synths and state-of-the-art noise generation. This is their most personal and political album yet. Nice 180gsm vinyl too."
Karies / Karies / 12" Vinyl / Harbinger Sound / harbinger160"
Stuttgart's Karies produce four new tracks of that brooding, but driving post-punk sound they're known for throughout Germany. Even though the material may reference the likes of Die Haut and the Abwarts , and even touching on The Wipers at points. Karies constantly reframe that sound and keep it very much retro free. These are the last group recordings to feature Kevin Kuhn who had to go fulltime with his other band - Die Nerven. This UK edition of the EP is housed in a gorgeous gatefold sleeve and is limited to 300 copies on Harbinger Sound. A new album will follow in the fall.
Circuit Breaker / My Descent Into Capital / Vinyl LP / Harbinger Sound / harbinger151
"My Descent Into Capital" represents the most ambitious recording from this London-based duo to date. Even if they're taking influence from minimal synth, post-punk or early industrial sides, Circuit Breaker are unmistakably contemporary with their delivery. Forging together metallic drum machines, propulsive synth lines and stark guitar degradation into bold , simple and effective songs about isolation, discontentment and the true horror of work. This album transgresses any simple nostalgia for its musical forefathers and showcases a band with their eyes fixed firmly on the future. Any obvious reference points are contorted and stretched to the point where they are transformed into something new. After ten years of obscurity, a refusal to go away, and two well-received records on Tombed Visions, this album is their first full-length album, as-well as their first with abstract-punk imprint Harbinger Sound. Having played many shows supporting Sleaford Mods, the duo are about to embark on an extensive tour with new label mates Consumer Electronics early next year. The album was mastered by Barry Grint at Alchemy. ""
Debt Of Nature / Order, Spoil The Entire State /  Vinyl LP / Harbinger Sound / harbinger111
An album of incredible archival recordings by Brad Laner and Jim Goodall's 1980's noise orchestra. Featuring many other LAFMS superstars such as Rick Potts and Joseph Hammer , along with several unknown secret San Fernando Valley noise geniuses. An album's worth of epic spontaneous compositions created with tape recorders, short wave radios, cheap synths, random orchestral instruments and circuit bent gearand all unleashed in front of an unsuspecting audience. "...we opened for WALL OF VOODOO and successfully pissed off 1000 screaming New Wave assholes" Starting out back in August 1981 as Brad Laner's solo project and self-confessed "pretentious art phase". It wasn't long before he started bringing friends , most notably Jim Goodall and SpencerSavage, and other players in and over the following years DEBT OF NATURE would expandinto a much larger ensemble. It's those larger ensembles that are captured on this album with liverecordings caught throughout the bands final two years. These tracks were originally programmed with a four 7" boxset in mind, but the flow of the pieces works just as well on the 12" format here. Even though they only released a small number of cassettes throughout their lifespan, mostly on ARPH and Laner's own Party Sound Tapes label. They appeared on numerous seminal Noise and Punk crossover compilations that emitted from California's west coast on labels such as the Minutemen's New Alliance imprint, New Underground, and Trance Port. Later other work appeared on Anomalous Records.Over the five to six years they existed the band played many showsthroughout Los Angeles and up into the Bay Area. DEBT OF NATURE is the starting block for both Laner and Goodall's musical trajectory that has now spanned three decades and taken in many points along the way. Both players recently resurfaced with a reformed MEDICINE , a band they formed who released material via Creation Records and Rick Rubin's American Recordings. Prior to that they could be found alongside LAFMS mainstay Rick Potts and others in the STEAMING COILS. Laner was also a major player in FOURWAYCROSS and could be found at times in SAVAGE REPUBLIC, NERVOUS GENDER and many others.Jim Goodall would record for a number of years under the alias of D.D.DOBSON and his violent electronic works can be found on numerous experimental noise labels. He also played as a member of WHITEHOUSE during their comeback tour of the USA during 1993. Brad Laner was also a major contributor to the legendary experimental music magazine UNSOUND which will be the subject of an extensive feature in the forthcoming As Loud As Possible #2 magazine. A second DEBT OF NATURE album capturing the band's earlier years is scheduled for release on Harbinger Sound sometime too."
