@d6 yeah! i count myself very lucky to have had great music influences growing up, including my noise friend i met bc he worked with my older brother. friend ran a noise label for our little region and was peddling releases (his label and others) constantly. face of vehemence was his recommendation for someone brand new to noise and i took to it immediately. looking back i guess it was a new album still? this was like 2003 or 2004. prog/psych rock dad and jam band band older brother-in-law laid the groundwork for me becoming a noise fiend.
