John Oswald - Plexure

John Oswald is best known for pioneering and coining the term "plunderphonics." Plunderphonics is the use of pre-exisiting sound works to make your own works or sound collages. Oswald has been practicing Plunderphonics since the '70s, but is also a recognized saxophonist and media artist.
Here we have "Plexure" which was released in 1993, and it is one of my favorite Oswald works. This really has to be heard to understood, as words fail to describe it accurately. Listen close and you will hear everything from Gwar to Edie Brickell on this album.

Adam Long - Lunchfuck Presents: Spotty Lincoln

Here is another little treat from Adam Long and Lunchfuck called "Spotty Lincoln."
Enjoy and download HERE.

Nuclear Death - Bride Of Insect / Carrion For Worm

Nuclear Death was fairly well known amongst tape traders, and zine readers in the underground in the early 90s, but aside from that, were sorely unrecognized, especially later in their careers. Lori Bravo was the driving force behind Nuclear Death, and her crazed grindcore/death metal stylings are like nothing I've heard since.
Presented here is the 2000 rerelease of "Bride Of Insect" originally released in 1990, and "Carrion For Worm" originally released in 1991. These albums are like a whirlwind of sorts, seemingly uncontrolled, yet obviously refined. Amazing.
Chris Reifert from Autposy even provides some backing vocals. It's a must listen. Info HERE and download HERE.
