Tunnel Canary
Tunnel Canary originally formed in 1978(see Punk History Canada.ca) for
details. This will be the first time they have played in 25 years.Their
CD Jihad was released in 2007 and available at Zulu records. The
general creative approach of the band can be summed up in the
following quote from the writings of Cornelius Cardew-
"The ideology of a ruling class is present in its art implicitly, the
ideology of a revolutionary class must be expressed in its art
explicitly."

Oscillating Innards:

"Realized in 2001, Oscillating Innards is a solo audial manifestation of Gordon Ashworth (also of Concern, Riverbed Mausoleum, Black Air). Expressed through vehement, deliberate electro-acoustic harsh noise, deep drone compositions, and texturally complex sound collage, recent performances and recordings focus on themes of depersonalization, failed art and maudlinism. "

Brutophilia (Victoria, B.C.)

Back from a recent tour of europe, Brutophilia deftly blends harsh
noise and power electronics into a dense mass of violent fits of
anger, screaming jags, and old-fashioned pure industrial punishment.

Ejaculation Death Rattle

An unholy poisoning of ambient, free-folk and pseudo psychedelic primitivism amid sweeping tides of noise, drone music worship, spastic panning, bent and decayed notes, and assorted digital debris meant to keep everyone off balance. Deceptively improvised, and/or intentionally contrived? An atypical journey through uplifting murk and lurid bliss.
Sean; ominous throbbing, buzzing of wasps, melodious deception, wailing spasms
Shan; screeching tires, low end rumbling, air raid sirens, herald of pestilence
Heather; amplified rust scratching, sawtooth scrapes, cheap and destructible strung plywood, ethereal 5-string manipulation
Ross; the swelling of leeches, CPU shrapnel, microtonal dentist drill, pure waveform alchemy, transcendental pulsation
Dan: dronal plinking, electrical interference

Rusalka


Inspired by nature and desolate landscapes Rusalka is a solo project,
from a small town outside of Vancouver, consisting of synth and tape
manipulation.

Fistopia

Southern Alberta's proof that something is very wrong. Harsh pedal noise with a total garbage assault and vocals from the bottom of a dumpster in the wrong part of town.

THE RITA

Canadian harsh noise project THE RITA is from Kelowna, BC and made it's start in 1996 with it's first cassette release. Since then THE RITA has moved to Vancouver, BC and has played live regularly in the Lower Mainland, extensively in the US, and last year the project toured Japan. THE RITA interests that inspire his crumbling walls of analog harsh noise include Italian Giallo films, the Gillman, Lake Nicaragua Bull sharks, silent and pre-code actresses, vintage dirt bikes, Giovannona Long-Thigh, and Malizia. THE RITA has various international CD, cassette, and vinyl harsh noise releases that are all representative of his focus on the 'powerful minimalist deconstruction of the harsh noise object' via audial structures of distortion.

BLUE SABBATH BLACK CHEER

From a cold dark place known as the Bleak Village (Seattle), Blue Sabbath Black Cheer are a
demon-network of scraping nails and heavy fists, howling torments set to bad vibes. Drawing influence from HEAVY, combining cold atmospherics from the darkest depths of the collective psyche, flesh-slicing sonic mayhem with a bitter disregard for humanity, this brutal duo swears by sonic confrontation. For fans of G.I.S.M., The New Blockaders, Crash Worship ADRV, and Moevot, not for fans of music.

CSTL
distortion and fuzz harsh noise filth from victoria, british columbia.
inspired by road rash, poverty, weather, faulty wiring, loose gravel, turbine propulsion, needles and liars.

Quebec LePink

Québec LePink écrase vos espoirs et vos rêves. ils empoisonnent le puits
avec l'hédonisme épileptique. leurs instruments musicaux sont faits
d'ordures, leur oreille torture les enfants de blessure et fait vos
oreilles dans les vagins qu'ils baisent avec un couteau.

Singultus

The Black aforesaid is an evident sign, that in the beginning the
Matter and Composition doth begin to purge it self, ...less than the
Motes in the Sun; or a glutinous Water, ...at length it will thicken
and congeal, and become like Pitch, exceeding Black; in the end it
will become a Body, and Earth, ...it will have a scent or stink like
unto Graves newly opened, wherein the Bodies are not thorowly
consumed.

FROGHAT & SOFAQUEEN

Noise-duo from Victoria, BC. SOUND: Generous portions of solid low-end machine-drone, mixed with outbursts of feedback, old-school tape-warble and bent circuitry. TOOLS: Tape decks, audio cassettes and repurposed electronics in combination with distortion, delay, compression, and pitch modification. METHODOLOGY: Total contemplation, zero histrionics.
Previous appearances include: Occilostomy Incursion 12 - Aug 4-07
vacant lot in Victoria, BC, Ritual of Harsh Noise - Oct 27-07
& Loan Gallery, Nanaimo, BC, Your Basement is Harsh as Fuck - Dec 8-07 basement, Victoria, BC. COMMENTS:You played already? Must have been a short set. Sounds like you've been practicing. I liked that throbbing low-end part at the end, sounded like Lustmorde.

Crib Slut
free range, monogamous box fondler, might make you dance,
might make you run. whatever it may be, it will always be a sweet
quicky. four out of five glitterbags agree, Crib Slut squeals.

Taskmaster

Vancouver based artist Taskmaster is devoted to dirty analog tape
destruction. Producing a sonic onslaught of lulling streams of static
that flow into a crackling abyss.

FROZEN BODY
Fucked junk electronics from Portland, Oregon via Denver and Los Angeles. Harsh.

N.213

Fagnoize extreme / whitemud excess perversion / generated sensational glam shitdisturbed mongrel of the riot season / A personal exploration of living in emotional character overload / passive aggressive onslaught against the motherfucker invasion /////// Having self-released 30+ CDRs & Tapes on Isolated Now Waves, Nic Hughes goes for the reach around while performing invasive surgery / diamond deth. //////

G42
...an audio adventure that improvises using location recordings, software, acoustic objects and various electronics to create abstract observations of a whimsical or sinister nature. Time for a change. The moment of synchronicity as two windows align in a dream and you realize you've been here before. Back to normal. David A. (noise, software glitches, scotch, evasion and climate control) and Dan Kibke (a sound manipulator interested in improvisation, synthesis, feedback systems and field recording). error 404 sequencer not found. no sync. no bpm. no.

Agumentix
Argumentix transformed the beast from within the mouth of a tree. Regardless of past transgressions, within pure affiliations, the Power Bear fortune will overflow of positive aggression. He wishes to invite you to visualize tomorrow as the Final Chapter. Inside freedom, you will create your own monument.

been making noise and running the Smokefilledcasket/Ketchup Cavern
labels for several years as well as alienating audiences across Canada.
Their website can be found at http://www.ketchupcavern.com.

Hellschreiber
"Sometimes we're so defenseless. No, I don't know... Like children
cast out into the wilderness at night. The owls fly by, watching you
with their yellow eyes. You hear the pitter-patter and rustle,
soughing and sighing... All the moist muzzles... The teeth of the
wolves... " -Ingmar Bergman, from "Through A Glass Darkly".

Eraritjaritjaka
Experimental musician and producer from Portland, OR. Has performed shows and
festivals throughout the West Coast and and collaborated with artists
like Richard Ramirez and Warning Broken Machine. His studio work differs greatly
from his live performances.
A Portland Mercury review described him as: "A cruel sound...sounds like the
brutal grind of life leading to death, the feeling of being dropped into the food
chain, of mortality realized, and nightmares that toss you around like a thin, old sock." - eraritjaritjaka.com -

Totally Ripped
"Totally Ripped formed in the winter of 2006 in
Vancouver, B.C. Where they still reside. Totally
Ripped features members from Certain Breeds, Shearing
Pinx and Black Mage. Totally Ripped have an upcoming
split 12" with To Live and Shave in L.A, to be
released on Isolated Now Waves in the spring of 2008.
Ching Ching."

Sistrenatus
Sistrenatus storms forth as a bleak industrial presence against a backdrop of harrowing white noise and dark ambient textures. The audible essence of degeneration and decay.

Quim
Spastic improv no wave/ noise duo from Seattle.

Diseased Visions
Seattle based scum noise duo, that use analog synths and broken electronics to produce shrill high tonal skree with underlying nasty low end crawling filth.
