va - Voice Crack Remixes"

Entirely unnecessary compilation of remixes of Voice Crack sounds. Did this really need to exist? Most probably not, but exist it does and so here it is for you. Two of the remixes are by Aphasic and Toby Reynolds (aka DJ Scud), the two gents who compiled and released this on their own Ambush label in 2002. I'm not even sure whether these tracks can rightly be called "remixes"; more accurately, they're original tracks that use Voice Crack as a source sound. Other remixers include Hrvatski (aka Keith Fullerton Whitman), Jim O'Rourke, Matmos, Russell Haswell & Florian Hecker, and... Norbert Moslang!

Hovlakin - ほぶらきん・コンプリートBox"




Hovlakin (or Hoburakin) were another of those great Japanese chaos-punk groups that re-imagined Western punk, exploded and disappeared. They released a few singles and flexis in the very early 80s and disappeared from view (at least on my side of the planet ... where, frankly, they were invisible in the first place). Almost inevitably, it's thanks to Jojo Hiroshige and his wonderful Alchemy Records that they began to appear at all ... and then this ... the Complete Box! It came with a DVD which I don't have ... so it's the Incomplete Box and life just keeps on proving that you can't have everything.

Six CDs courtesy of Youth Inc. in 2013.

Voice Crack - Taken and Changed"

Several artists on the Austrian label Mego were influenced by Voice Crack's misuse of electronics and their aesthetic of intentional technological failure (particularly Florian Hecker, Pita, and Farmers Manual). It seemed natural that Mego and Voice Crack would cross paths eventually, and so they did with this 1999 album. "Taken and Changed" was only released online by an mp3-only Mego sub-label called Fals.ch. Nothing from Fals.ch seems to be available online anymore, so here this is now.

Voice Crack - Below Beyond Above"

Discogs nerds might notice that eight years pass between "Earflash" and its follow-up, "Below Beyond Above". What happened in all that time? Voice Crack went from being a self-contained unit to one element of other, larger, groups. They released two more collaborative albums with Borbetomagus (both exceedingly good examples of what it might sound like to get Peter Brotzmann's beard wet and stick him face-first into an electrical socket) and one with Gunter Mueller (another Swiss artist leaving jazz behind and embracing abstract electronics). They also shed occasional drummer Knut Remond, leaving Moslang and Guhl's cracked electronics free to wander the stratosphere unencumbered by anything resembling terrestrial instrumentation or logic. Back on their own, they created an album that scales back the assault and aims for more Tudor-esque abstraction. Recorded in 1997, released as a CD by Uhlang in 1998.

Voice Crack - Earflash"

By 1990, several key events happened in the lives of our heroes Moslang & Guhl. They acquired a 3rd member in percussionist Knut Remond, who you might know from the Swiss industrial rock band 16-17. With director Peter Liechti, they made a fantastically entertaining film, "Kick That Habit" (reissued as a DVD by Drag City and readily available), which showcased their "cracked everyday-electronics". They toured extensively, and made fruitful allies with like-minded American jazz/noise trio Borbetomagus (with whom they would record several collaborative albums). And of course, they took the name of their 1986 LP as their own band name. 1990 saw them at the height of their most aggressive phase, creating blinding masses of short-circuit bouyed by Remond's remorseless bass drum. A brilliant album, and one of the true classics of harsh noise.

Several years after "Deep Voices", and the proto-Voice Crack boys have shed their jazz roots, replacing saxophones and basses with distressed toasters, clock radios, egg timers, flashlights and all manner of "cracked everyday-electronics" (a term they coined to describe their particular brand of warranty-negating found-object-wreckage). First released as an LP on Uhlklang (a division of FMP) in 1983, reissued on CD in 2001 by Atavistic.

Norbert Möslang & Andy Guhl - Deep Voices"

Way back in 1978, two Swiss multi-instrumentalists recorded a little LP for well-respected jazz/improv label FMP. In 1995, a short-lived label called Urthona (run by the guy behind Quiet Artworks, Hajsch, and PFN) reissued it on CD. This post is taken from the CD version. Taken on their own terms, these duos for reeds, strings, percussion and electronics are quite good. However, what makes "Deep Voices" particularly noteworthy is that it's the debut album by the band who would soon begin to wreck domestic electronics and create sheets of white-hot din under the name Voice Crack. And if you're reading this and thinking, "gee, I wonder whether a skipload of Voice Crack albums are about to show up on this blog", then that means you've been paying attention.

From memory, there were only three hundred copies of this, which plays a large part in explaining the rapid price speculation.
