Demo Tapes 1991-1995

As far as I remember, there has always been an inappropriate use of the term "noisecore". I still have vivid memories of me & my friends going to this anarchist squat in milano in the mid/late '90s to see a gig of unknown bands tagged on a flyers as noisecore. It turned out to be kinda of grunge bands with some feedbacks a la Sonic Youth. Needless to say we were all quite disappointed. Then it was used to describe crappy metalcore bands in the early 00s'. That kind of popular shit that was on Hydrahead Records. In more recent years I've seen it used also to describe noisy hardcore influenced by Kyushu bands. Stuff like Control, Isterismo & the likes. Not totally inappropriate but "noisepunk" is a more appropriate word to describe this scene. Indeed, true noisecore has to follow quite strict parameters: songs must be ultra-short, uber-distorted & with blast beats, lo-fi production & the "singer" must screams his guts out like a dying pig. It has to be released on split 7"s or, even better, DIY tapes. Bands attitude must be radical and dogmatic. This is what true noisecore is all about. Perhaps the only underground subgenre that has never turned mainstream and probably never will. And Noise outta Brazil fits perfectly these rules. They are indeed one of the undisputed pioneers of this style, being active since 1991. As the title suggests, this lp compiles the early demo tapes from this incredible band. Not only their music is radical and truly applies to the "caos non musica" mantra, their political attitude is even more drastic. They indeed follow a hardline anti-capitalistic politics so the only way to get their records/tapes was via trade. Even if you can actually buy this lp, they would be proud of me for getting my copy via a trade that I did with Dan/SPHC. So glad they did this reissue since, while their vinyl outputs are quite easy to find, the early tapes are extremely difficult to get. Not for everyone, but if 7MON, early Cripple Bastards, GBN and similars are constantly on your playlist, you won't be disappointed.
