Music: M19

Occasionally, I have experimented with making noise tracks. Here are three of them. Track 1 is a rhythmic one, the other two are full-on, all-frequencies-in-the-red noise. They are in order of recording and quality, so track 3 is the best one here.

WARNING TO PET OWNERS: Track 3 contains a lot of high frequencies that may send your furry friend mental.

Tracks:
01-31-07-08 [6:00]
02-04-08-08 [6:45]
03-29-05-09 [11:21]

Mix: Discontent

The sound of disaffected punks and post-punks, from the Winter of Discontent to the early years of the Thatcher Reich. My 3-year-old son likes The Magits and Come best of all (worryingly), but my wife prefers Discharge and Warsaw.

"Smash the fucked up fucking system".
