After the passing of Keith Brewer last year, I talked with Peter Zincken of Nihilistic Recordings about what happened. Taint was among the first noise projects I discovered and I’ve been faithfully following wherever Keith went. This journey turned out to be highly rewarding as Taint and later Mania became a great source of inspiration.
In 1989 Keith released his first tape as Mysogyny on Big Body Parts in The USA and Nihilistic Recordings in the EU. The master from Peter’s archive blew me away and includes a few short tracks that are lacking from the Big Body Parts version I heard. We decided to reissue this version as a tribute to Keith. A collection of raw, crude sounds that lay the foundation of what later became a true harsh noise legend.
I cannot praise this album enough. This album is absolutely terrifying! The many starts and stops creates this very h settling tension. Each start expands on the stopper idea previously. It’s like the music equivalent of walking through thick fog while passing out multiple times throughout trying to find a place to orientate yourself. There may or may not be something sinister in that fog, but you don’t want to stick around to find out. Bought the vinyl so I summon the fog demons through spe showhornwithteeth
