MG08/2007/02: I’m feeling gay today! – Portable Noise Kremator/Sedona Vortex And UFO Hotspot Split CDR
splitCDr featuring 4 tracks by Portable Noise Kremator and 3 by Sedona Vortex And UFO Hotspot. The latter band is a solo-project of Lieven Martens, ceo of Bread and Animals and of the once was but now R in P Imvated. Also known from other fine projects like Groote, Moysk, Dirk Freenoise, Zatte Jos, Lovecrimes, the more recent Pulsating in the eyes of dolphins (to be seen at Live in de Living on the 2nd of april) and the list is still growing. This CDr is a cheerful ‘n gay release to cheer up the start of this year’s spring. Both bands bring you happy casio- and synth-tunes of other makes, albeit both in their own way. The Portable Noise Kremator-tracks strictly adher to the polyphonic rules as conceived by the cult of the mechanical seagull (see the book of pulse for more info), like many other sects the cult of the mechanical seagull believes the world will go down soon and they’re quite happy with that, but scratch off the thin layer of gayness and you’ll notice their world too is ruled by anxiety and fear for what is coming (they are especially afraid of shadows as it is said in the book of pulse that the mechanical seagull will cast its shadow over the earth shortly before pooping this rotting world to smitters) – Sedona Vortex And UFO Hotspot is marked by a more flowlike approach, of which they say the following: “this piece is a vision when i was looking for some information about Sedona on the world wide web. there is a powerful and enlighted combination of healing earthtones and ET encounters. just how i visioned it. i was also very tired at the moment (it was 6.02am). had a severe stomachache, since i just drank the strongest coffee i’ve ever made. i was shivering and making smelly diarrea. visionary, of course… i really like it when my outer self is in this state of being. it makes the world sping lighter, more healing. pulsating in the eye of vision, on this occasion, plays the *GEM organ. gently and visual. there is natural delay. i was listening a lot to an early 70’s WITCH lp and some found cassettes in the period before this vision. i felt a strange attraction in music.�? Limited to 40 copies. Be quick.
MG08/2007/01: Live (but slightly lost) – DVD
Volume 1 in what hopefully is going to become a series of live DVD’s, this one featuring these fine artists: Filthy Turd (live at De Hondenkoekjesfabriek), Crank Sturgeon (live at De Hondenkoekjesfabriek, Live at De Living and Gazoil Organ), Gastric Female Reflex (same locations as Crank Sturgeon), Odal (Gazoil Organ), Portable Noise Kremator (live at Nimuzique 1, live at De Living , live at B32), M.A.N (Live at B32) and Monopolka (Live at De Living). Some of the clips can also be found in my youTube-profile. Some, but not all. Very limited release of which a good deal are meant for the bands, so be quick!
MG07/2006/07: Palindrone/Portable Noise Kremator – Split CDR
On this release Palindrone and Portable Noise Kremator meet. Palindrone is the doomdrone side-project of the Dutch human noisebox-duo M|A|N and they open this split-release with a roaring 26 minute-track of broken guitarnoise featuring one of the slowest pieces of drumming ever (app. 3 minutes between each hit). The following 4 tracks are coming from Portable Noise Kremator (Belgium), a band that stands for trashy doomnoise – Track 2 is rather minimal, Earth-inspired, quite different from other Portable Noise Kremator-material, Track 3 is an abrasive, drone-oriented shorty (pounding) and Track 4 was recorded after a cigarette-overdose (nicotine and aching lungs). Track 5 sounds like Can’t doing Sunn-o))) – sort of – the guitar on this one is a feedbacking intercom and a super 8-projector. First run of 40 copies. Get in touch to secure your copy. Comes in a nice ‘n selfmade package with artwork that was too dark for the latest generation of intelligent xerox-copiers to handle. Soundbits available in due time.
MG06/2006/06: Death VD – Sorry, All Copies Gone!
“For play on Death Petrol 2006″ the text on this DVD reads. Intended for and explicitely made to be shown on Death Petrol 2006 this DVD eventually wasn’t shown during the chaotic event that is named Death Petrol. Nevertheless 6 copies were made of this DVD. All gone now. Sorry. Maybe soon on youTube?
DVD, 10 minutes.
Ah! 1996! A drumkit made of metal scraps, primitive dubbings, radiowave-surfing and an old turntable that was turned into an instant loop machine. Back then we (= Jan B + me) listened a lot to Steve Reichs early tape- and phase-experiments, studied the experimental side of CRASS and I had just discovered K2 and Smell & Quim. Old’s cool stuff from the pre-mangenerated-era. Yup, I like this one, for it’s heavy bangings and delicious scrapings. Limited to 40 copies.
CDr, 30 minutes, 13 tracks. Soundbits online in due time.
MG04/2006/04: The Maxell Tapes Pt.1
The Maxell Tapes Pt.1 contains a first selection of material found on a vast collection of (mostly) unlabeled Maxell Tapes (hence the name) that were recorded over a period of several years at various locations – As such the material on it is very diverse, yet quite different from the doomy Portable Noise Kremator-stuff, ranging from singing monks on delay over contact-miked chairdancing to Rock’n Butthole Surfer Improvs on the steady beat of a 606. For experimentalists and people that wander around in Absurdistan from time to time. And for those that enjoy looking back at what has been. Ah! 1996! 1998! 2002! Limited to 38 30 copies, get in touch if ya want some!
CDr, 29 minutes, 10 tracks.
MG03/2006/03: 3 Film Holding DVD music by Portable Noise Kremator – Sorry, All Copies Gone!
“3 Film Holding DVD music by Portable Noise Kremator” is the first DVD-release on mangenerated.com. On it are the 3 films that were shown at Live in de Living 23, at Cinema Nova’s Open Screen session on the 27th of april and at the Nimusique 2-festival. These 3 films are actually “test-cases”: first steps in remounting and manipulating found filmfootage (i.e super 8 movies) and combining it with sound. Therefore this DVD-release is extremely limited: only 7 copies are made, some of which are already spoken for, so be quick if you want to secure a copy! All copies come in a handmade package which consists of a brown paperbag, a still from one of the movies, and of course ducktape.
DVD, 26 minutes, 3 films:

MG02/2006/02: Portable Noise Kremator – Three-headed sickbed – Sorry, All Copies Gone!
Out now is “Three-headed sickbed”, second release on mangenerated.com by Portable Noise Kremator. “Three-headed sickbed” has the same doomy atmosphere of “Angst at 3am”, but the sound is more (harsh)noise-oriented, overall this release sounds heavier and thougher than their previous release – all tracks recorded in one go in the course of an evening, much like “Angst” was. Limited to 40 43 copies, comes in a nice handmade cardboard sleeve and insert.
|CDr, 32 minutes, 5 tracks:|
MG01/2006/01: Portable Noise Kremator – Angst at 3am – Sorry, All Copies Gone!
Out now on mangenerated.com is the first official release of Portable Noise Kremator: “Angst at 3 am”, a band whose material can best be described as doomtrashnoise, a genre description which best suits tracks 1 (“disarticulation in trash mol”), 2 (“angst at 3am”, the title-track of the CDr) and 5 (“fucks on your grave”, with 11 minutes the centerweight of the CDr). On the forementioned tracks mangled guitarslashes meet harshnoise. Tracks 3 (“a cute disorganization”) and 4 (“gaz’otages”) are more drone-oriented, while track 6 (“havan”) is an electro-accoustic piece in which the main instrument is a contactmiked chair. Limited to 40 copies, the artwork of this release is partly made of slashed strips of cara beercans (if one makes abstraction of that 1 jupiler and edelmeister pils 50 cl-can that were used) – according to the band incorporating those cans of beer at the time seemed like “a jolly good way to get rid of part of that damned waste that was starting to block up the access to the rehearsal room”. For their next release they plan to do something with used coffee-filters and white fungus.
CDr, 30 minutes, 6 tracks:
- disarticulation in trash mol
- angst at 3am
- a cute disorganization
- fucks on your grave
