Fans of Noise music will need no introduction to the work of TNB. Ron Lessard, of legendary US Noise label RRRecords, once stated, ‘I’d give the nod to TNB as being the first truly devoted Noise artists.’ In the early '80s, they laid down the gauntlet for the likes of Merzbow and Hanatarash et al to pick up later and their influence on the current crop of popular crossover Noise artists such as Wolf Eyes is immeasurable.
In 1984, TNB collaborated with David Jackman / Organum on the Pulp 7" which has been cited as one of the most influential Noise records ever. Two short excerpt from the Pulp sessions were included on the 7". The Pulp Sessions included two (approx) 20-minute outtakes from these legendary recordings and are classic examples of early TNB. The tracks have been edited / mixed by Michael Gillham (TNB / Nihilist Assault Group / Vagina Dentata Organ.) The Pulp Sessions is an essential purchase for any TNB / Noise fan.
Edition of 250 numbered copies.
