various | way-out: the sound of um

the point of this compilation was to collect a bunch of bands whose music makes you go "umm!". in reality this means a whole bunch of noise from the tape underground, a genre that i dabbled in as "label boss" but never fully embraced. let's face it, the scene was completely overwhelmed with dodgy noise bands - people recording any old distorted shit and calling it music - that you had to work hard to find the good stuff.

i think i got some of both here.

::: kjetl d brandsdal - joustra
::: labrador - wot a downer
::: lee milan - untitled
::: melanchthon - different kind
::: mlehst - 100 ways of saying no
::: phlegm - ringing [i did this - it's rubbish]
::: realm of dreams - alien grounds
