First Annual San Francisco Bay Area Harsh Noise Festival
- HARSH TIMES call for harsh noise! �The Edinburgh
Castle Pub presents the sonic antidote for the future
with the San Francisco Bay Area Harsh Noise Festival.
Of course, noise is always a few steps ahead: at its
best, it cuts to the chase of musical enjoyment,
serving simultaneously as aesthetic purification and
meta-music. The festival, curated by Bob Sato and Tim
Oliveira of the harshnoise label, promises such
sublime listening from the likes of: �THE HATERS,
celebrating 25 years of sonic entropy; Emil Beaulieau,
America's Greatest Living Noise Artist; SICKNESS,
purveyor of harsh electronic purity; Control, brutally
harsh power electronics; R.H.Y.. Yau,
Noise/Voice/Action by San Francisco's best kept
secret; The Cherry Point, bloody harsh electronics
unit trio: Phil Blankenship, John Wiese, and Gerritt.
Also performing are XOME, Pedestrian Deposit , Clew of
Theseus, Ohka, Velocity Stack, UFO AS BACTERIA,
Oscillating Innards, and Stimbox.
Shows start at 8 PM
Admission $6 each night. �$10 for both nights.
Show is 21+

The Mailart Typeface is made up of letters, numbers,
punctuation marks and symbols by over 120 mailartists
from around the world. The project was initially by
invitation to mailartists known for the strong graphic
qualities in their work. I was assigned the 'delete'
key to design!
I knew I wasn't part of mainstream history, but now it
seems I'm not part of my own history either.
It was brought to my attention recently that a critic,
at 2GQ dot org, wrote a review of an essay I did for
the magazine FO_A_RM. This person clearly didn't care
for my piece. Which is fine, but this person then
ended the critique by saying: "...It's just the sort
of self-indulgent experimental pretension you might
expect of a writer who uses their contributor bio to
make sure everyone knows they originated a certain
performance years before The Haters got around to it."
Well... need I say more?
A 25 hour long mp3 for The Haters 25th Anniversary has
been completed and is available through the label
PsychForm Records will soon be releasing the CD "Zero
Is The Journey", a collaboration between The New
Blockaders and The Haters!
