First FC batch of 2012.
FUC 56 - Carl Kruger - Gary, New Duluth (C60)
Carl hits hard with two ultra layered 30 minute tracks. Different from much of his earlier works, this album relies on patience and slowly shifting sound. NOT "HNW" by any means, just good old fashion noise.
FUC 57 - Gapers - Wide (C10)
Completely autistic, shitbag power electronics from some of the worst Chicago has to offer. 18 tracks of "fuck you" to anyone that thinks they matter. Nothing matters, including you.
2 track sample: [url]http://soundcloud.com/jimharas/gapers-2-sample-tracks[/url]
FUC 58 - Control Unit - Steel Tape (C21)
Italian duo of Silvia Kastel and Ninni Morgia. 4 tracks of guitar noise with hauntingly beautiful spoken/sung vocals. Uneasy listen for uneasy times. Dubbed on a C60 (repeated on both sides) for a demo-like feel. Tracks are to be listened to without having to flip the tape.
FUC 59 - Bachir Gemayel - Al-Noumour (2xC12)
Long awaited return of Bachir. Harsh noise with public speech collaboration. These tapes do their job as a single unit, but the real power is heard when listened to simultaneously (A with C, B with D). Complex listen. Includes manifesto by M. Chami and 1 insert.

FUC 60 - Winters In Osaka - Common Fear (C90)
First compilation in a series of 4 containing past WiO material. This tape focuses on the dreary, lengthy side of WiO. The kind of drones that make you want to just end it all.
Sample: NONE, you already know what it sounds like.
FUC 61 - Hostage Pageant - Filth Consumption Tactics (C20)
Insanely complex harsh noise from this future master. Layers, dynamics and textures take you on what feels like a roller coaster ride that has bolted off its tracks. You want your HN harsher you say? This is for you.
FUC 62 - Sirotek - A Hole In My Heart (C30)
Very well crafted HN from Russia. There is a clear theme of loss in this piece that lives up to its track titles. Harsh noise with a cold, depressing atmosphere just as you should expect from our northernmost friends...or enemies.
