narco051 – K2 “TEKHNODRUG” CD (in conspiracy with AT WAR WITH FALSE NOISE)

K2_promo1

Reissue of a long-lost tape from 1993 here. K2 has long been at the fore-front of Japanese noise and is known for his harsh, collage style.

This record isn´t an all-out harsh-fest in the way that contemporaries like Hijokaidan are, but is very varied in sound. There´s creeping synth tone, screeching feedback, piercing blasts of white noise, rumbling static. Compositionally there are long periods of coherence, with an almost musical sensibility, but these are often brought to a shattering halt by a blast of ear-splitting noise.

Edition of 500

10.00 € + postage

narco055 – TAETER “THE HUNT HAS GONE FULL CIRCLE” 7″

R-7634219-1448624705-3782.jpeg

After classic demo tape and full length CD releases, Narcolepsia is proud to unleash the first vinyl for this obscure Nicola Vinciguerra´s project. Reeking of sexual decay and perfectly fitting the 7” single format, “The Hunt Has Gone Full Circle” emulates the crusty leftovers of anonymous clients, shattered dreams and low income, nature decomposed and degraded past recognition. Slowly moving, pulsating and hypnotic, this is Power Electronics vileness for the dedicated connoisseur.

Edition of 250.

7.00 € + postage

narco056 – TROUBLED SLEEP #3

tumblr_ok18b1m7m51s7aixqo1_r2_1280

THE HATERS – One of the most influential entities in the noise underworld, with an existence that precedes its own foundations and a focus on entropy through permanent conceptual reinvention.
KAKERLAK – Xerox saturated, ultra vile sounds keeping the 90s Americanoise corpse afloat.
DEVELOPER – Exquisite cut-up wizardry from a contemporary master.
UNTERGESCHOSS – Now sadly defunct, one of the most consistent noise labels from recent years, displaying an accurate vision and a honorable approach to its craft throughout a short yet impressive path.
UNDERGROUND POLLUTION RECORDS – Belching releases at an inhuman pace, recycling the world through total DIY.
NECROBUTCHER – A journey into the gloriously radical days of the brazilian Necrounderground for those willing to dig deep enough. “No Thrash!!”
DOWN & OUT – Tasmanian publication with a very personal, distinctive view on zine writing and a fresh honesty that overcomes genre boundaries or micro-scene expectations.
KIDDIEPUNK – Home for all things Michael Salerno related. Cryptic, entrancing and elegant take on visual transgression.
MIKE DIANA – Legendary comics artist in a rare appearance, going from the well known trial incident and its symbolic value to the freedom of speech fight, to his perspectives on the underground art and publishing of the here and now.

Cover drawing by Romain Perrot.

112 pages offset printed zine.

(16 cm x 23 cm / 80 g paper + 220 g cardboard cover)

narco065 – TAETER vs SEKTOR 304 “THE HERMENEUTICS OF THE HUNT HAS GONE FULL CIRCLE” CD (in conspiracy with NEW APPROACH RECORDS)

Tater_promo#2

Back in 2015, by the same time TAETER´s debut release on vinyl came out (“THE HUNT HAS GONE FULL CIRCLE” 7” on Narcolepsia), André Coelho (SEKTOR 304/METADEVICE) created some material based on the reinterpretation of various source materials used on the recording sessions for that same 7”. The idea was to do a special tape edition, but it never materialized. Recently, André exhumed his archives and suggested the reactivation of this forgotten plan. Nicola contributed with alternative versions of the two tracks that came in that original release, and the collaboration took shape in its updated incarnation.

While listening to this material now, it is safe to say it has passed the test of time, retaining its atmosphere of uneasiness, its pulsating decrepitude, the personal recounts of over-sexualized failure whispered to our ears by a sweaty entity. André shreds Nicola´s seed unto a more arid and diluted fluid, infusing it with a twisted sci-fi vibe, a vile mechanical eroticism that deforms and suffocates its host. Minimal and obsessive, “slow and steady”, degraded past recognition as the blurry memories of an old late night amateur webcam session.

Making sense on its own, as a consistent “new” record, or as a companion object for Taeter completists – there must be some out there, right? – “THE HERMENEUTICS OF THE HUNT HAS GONE FULL CIRCLE” should hopefully help to expose more listeners to this excellent project, and particularly to that defining moment in its discography, still one of the absolute best Power Electronics 7” in recent years.

narco086 – TAPE DEKAY “DECADIMENTO DEL NASTRO / DECADENZA DI TUTTO” CD (in conspiracy with OLD CAPTAIN)

TapeDekay_promo1

“Decadimento Del Nastro – Decadenza Di Tutto” is the first album by Tape Dekay, BJ Nilsen’s (Hazard, Morthound) analogue musique concrete / noise project.

First appearance was in 1999 on the Cold Meat Industry sampler ‘Estheticks Of Cruelty’ with the track ‘Försökspersonerna’ (as Tape Decay). Second appearance was with the track ‘Jonestown Revisited’ on the 2009 cassette compilation ‘White Nights’, released by Private Edition.

The content of the current CD has been created with the Automatic Music Control System developed by ONKYO and the Elettrocardiograf by Officine Galileo. Informed by psychotronic distress, thought insertion, electronic harassment and the Frey effect. These 7 recordings reveal harsh and fragmented soundscapes tainted by disembodied voices, squelch and hyper charged feedback.

narco095 – CHAZEV “KATATONIA” CD
chazev_promo1

Obscure solo venture of Heinz Christian Wilp (founder of Der Schwarze Kanal, as well as ZU guitarrist and occasional member, as percussionist, of Das Synthetische Mischgewebe), which was active from 1984 to 1987.

“Katatonia”, originally put out by italian cult label ADN (as the Zona Industriale reissue in this batch), is probably the release most people associate with the project, and an absolutely essential document of 80s tape culture that Narcolepsia is very proud to unearth in this new format.

Enshrouded in the thick darkness of the postmortem era, this is a classic that contains every element to satisfy worshippers of those inimitable early days: diluted rawness and sinister vibes echoing throughout its entire length, in a spiral hypnotic descent into abyssic primitivism, spawning solemn and archaic rituals exhumed from forbidden regions, a macabre incursion into the saturated hiss of pure negativity.

narco110 – TAKLAMAKAN vs UMPIO “INTERAXION VENENOSA” CD (in conspiracy with WHITE CENTIPEDE NOISE)

umpio_taklamakan_sleeve_E1+cover

What we have here is a reissue of this LP from 2014, originally in an edition of 100 on italian label A Dear Girl Called Wendy. No remaster, no bonus, just classy junk noise archaeology.

Back in 2013, Taklamakan (Croatia) received unused recording session leftovers from Umpio (Finland), and viceversa, in the best tradition of the old days of mail collaboration. “Do something with this!” The final result comes in the form of two pieces in which each artist recycles those materials, combining strange with new, arriving at the crystal clear focus point of massive avalanches of relentless scrap metal electronix compositions.

“Here at Arkisto / Umpio HQ, with the help of close allies White Centipede Noise and Narcolepsia, we wish to celebrate and salute the now defunct A Dear Girl Called Wendy, forever in gratitude for believing in this project, and for being an absolutely kick-ass harsh noise label.” – P. Dassum

Edition of 300

10.00 € + postage
