John Wiese – Arrhythmia Wave Burst and Panner Crash

johnwiese_92406_arrythmiaI love 3″ cds. I think they’re gonna save the noise genre. See, pure non-linear noise is best in small portions. Nobody needs 80 minutes of relentless grinding. That kind of noise is best suited for to-the-point, short bursts. 20 minutes at the most. This release is 23, but I can forgive that. “Arrhythmia Wave Burst and Panner Crash” is made up of 4 tracks, each a live recording from a different west coast location. It’s all pretty standard noise fare – screeching, grinding, beeping – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing, but nothing stuck out in my mind about this release. Seriously – this could be the ‘everynoise’. Recommended for fans of standard japanoise ala Merzbow, and only serious fans at that. Nothing here is must-have. I can only assume it’s a lot more interesting live. – Christine Lett
