Birchville Cat Motel Quotes
The 'transition' into noise was only a public transition. I always played noise, feedback etc at home I just never thought anybody else would want to hear it until quite recently. I played my 'real music' stuff publicly- moving over the period of about 10 years playing in a few full throttle guitar-pop combos (largely inspired by Sabbath, My Bloody Valentine, Husker Du etc) until I finally ended up ditching all the fiddly bits and playing what was left... noisy-feedback sludge (which was becoming a large part of the music I was doing anyway).
An entire Slayer album could quite rightly be confused with a drone experience- a classic example of musical-info-overload to the point where WHAT they are playing becomes slightly irrelevant and the FEROCITY at which they play whatever they ARE playing becomes more important. And besides, the concept of 'air-guitar' becomes hopelessly redundant in the face of that kind of bpm- very good for air-drums though... um, so I hear.
