"Deforestation"
Year:  2011
Country:  UK
City:  Yorkshire
Artist:  George Proctor
Label:  Maching Head
Format:  cassette
Tracks:  3
Time:  42 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:         Harsh Noise





























This album was released as one-sided C-90 in a limited edition on "Matching Head Records", label which is still active and run by Lee Stokoe (from the musical project CULVER). The MUTANT APE tape, cover above - reproduced smaller to save your blushes at work, contains three tracks of satisfyingly metallic junk noise and nostril-flaring catharsis.  It provoked much nodding in approval here at blog and comes highly recommended.  That is all.

Year:  2009
Country:  UK

Artist:  George Proctor
Label:  Ecstatic Peace!
Format:  LP
Edition:  500 copies
Tracks:  10
Time:  50 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:          Harsh Noise

























One of the most gradually absorbing and stunning harsh noise acts I've ever seen, he ventures out from his Bradford hideaway rarely but that's not because he's actually a mutant ape; although if these primal ancestors of ours were given a kaoss pad it this would be the sonic result. A devastatingly enjoyable racket. Thurston Moore put out one of his records so go figure... Another b-side proejcts are also names such as: White Medal, Albion Warrior, Arch Toll... and more.

MURDER BOOK
"cooked"
Year:    2008
Country:    UK
City:    Newcastle
Label:    Turgid Animal
Format:    cassette
Tracks:   4
Time:    60 min.
Genre:    electronic
Style:            Drone            Noise
























"Murder Book" is a b-side project of George Proctor started in 2005 and still active. The goal of this b-side project is apparently not to repeat the same agressive MUTANT APE musical style, but to work more in drone and ambient landscapes. Without to abandon distortion pedals and electronic noise sounds, Proctor show us here his "softer" side with very long tracks (until 25 minutes) full of drones, ambient music and very slow tempo. Until date Murder Book has fifteen releases, but this one could be one of most inspired.

"Marilyn"
Year:  2005
Country:  UK
City:  Yorkshire
Artist:  George Proctor
Label:  No Lyrics rec.
Format:  cassette
Tracks:  10
Time:  56 min.
Genre:  electronic
Style:           Harsh Noise















Originally pressed on brazilian label now defunct No Lyrics Tapes, "Marilyn" was reprinted for the first time since it’s initial run in 2005 by the also already defunct label Girlfriend Party Records". Featuring new artwork by the owner Michael Siebert, "Marilyn" features an hour of pulsing, intense harsh noise from George Proctor, known for his work as MUTANT APE as well as his work in the infamous "Turgid Animal Records". Musically this is a rude, metallic and junk harsh noise which remind old bands and projects from the 80s decade, specially japanese artists. A kind of sound not of the 2005 but of the 1979 or 1980. I personally think in natural disasters when I listen this kind of extreme noise, harsh noise or HNW, nothing to do with: gore, terror, bondage, etc. but vulcanoes, earthquarkes, etc. Of course everybody can percive and to think with other issues. MUTANT APE for example decided to put as a cover of its debut lengh album "Marylin Monroe", something like THE RITA, noise project which often put also beautiful girls in its covers, artwork, etc. I am not agree some aspects of "Turgid Animal Records" (wat to work, some releases, etc.) but I must to admit this album simply I like and I recommend for those who like extreme dirty harsh noise.
