(DAY OF NOISE #12)

damn, really ending with a bang now, arent we Jimpy? perhaps one of the most iconic and notable Power Electronics albums to grace our ears, Bird Seed is truly an experience. any Whitehouse album is an experience if i'm being honest - shit like Mummy and Daddy and Great White Death are absolute nightmares of sound. but Bird Seed is what we're talking about today, so lets talk.

this record, with the pretty iconic cover, is... hard to talk about. for many reasons. is it sick? ... read more

this has some of whitehouses most memorable songs and is in my opinion ... read more

I guess I enjoy getting yelled at by angry British men.

Whitehouse's Bird Seed is one of their most famous releases, and I can definitely see why. Although I'm still not all that knowledgeable on their discography, seeing as the only other album I've heard from them was also one of their most famous releases and I wasn't too crazy for it, hearing an album that is actually really chilling and disturbing certainly gave me a new perspective on the band.

This album is honestly extremely difficult ... read more
