Review, Vital 378:
NORWEGIAN NOISE ORCHESTRA - TENDER LOVE IS A BITCH (CDR by Tib Prod) What else can you expect from a noise orchestra then noise? The Norwegian Noise Orchestra exists of a varying line up, but on this live recording, made at Betong (whereever that may be), there are fifteen players. Many names I didn't hear of before, but also including Sindre Andersen, Andreas Meland and Ole H. Melby. The whole hour that this recording lasts is filled with noise in the best Merzbowian tradition. Loud, noisy, aggressive and like a bath of sound to get drowned in. A nice work of the more intellegent noise. Only one thing crossed my mind: why are fifteen players needed for something that can also be done by one person? Maybe that is where a bit of my disappointment comes from. What could be the real oppurtunities for fifteen people doing noise if they would operate from fifteen personal views? (FdW)
