Horrible Porn

Horrible PornHorrible Porn, the harsh noise project from Middlesbrough have announced their debut EP – 25 Cromwell Street.

It is imposing, completely abrasive and has an unerring (and unnerving) focus to it – something which most people in this field completely miss the point of. Yes it’s ‘noise’, yes it’s about Fred West but it does not hit any of the usual old tropes and cliches. Rather, it’s an esoteric ‘journey through a body’; there are many odd qualities through the gateway into the non-soul of West, the way he would respond to things no-one else of us would be able to register in any recognisable or unrecognisable way. To be on another plain of existence.

Two tracks of sonic depravity, dedicated to the life and work of Fred West. Noise by Horrible Porn, addled by The Brutalist House and the ghosts in the machine. Limited run of 20 cassettes here and soon to be released on CD via Wormhole World.

  1. Looks like they must have been listening to too much Aggrokulture!! The resemblance in some places is frightening.
