Musique Machine Reviews

From Musique Machine:

Vice Wears Black Hose – Part 2
Vice Wears Black Hose is harsh noise/wall noise project that brings together two respected US noise mongers in the form of Sam McKinlay of The Rita and Richard Ramirez of Werewolf Jerusalem & Black Leather Jesus. This cdr takes in one long 40 minute track of unforgiving harsh static texturing and suffocation.

Die Rote Form – Grass Breaks Concrete
Die Rote Form make very stern yet grimly atmospheric licked power electronics meets old school industrial sonics. Grass Breaks Concrete is the band second full length cdr release packed in a nice professional manner in a glossy paper oversized sleeve.

David S. Ware Health Update / AMN Donation

A rough translation from David’s blog:

The May 12 operation went well. David is home taking anti-rejection medication and will be closely watched over the next 3 months. It has been impossible for him to work since September 2008, so there has been a call for donations to help David out financially at
http://www.aumfidelity.com/david-s-ware-health.html. We will wait for David to stabilize before organizing any future tours.

Please note the following: Avant Music News is going to donate advertising proceeds from the second quarter of 2009 to David’s health. We don’t make a lot on this site, but every little bit helps, and all of our revenue from April-June will go to David. If you don’t want to donate directly (which you should since its easy and anyone can afford a few bucks), you can do so indirectly through us. Thanks.
