Geert Kohler - Your Blonde Wife [Ominous Recordings - 2018]

Your Blonde Wife presents the listener with two ten minute examples of  sourly sleazed,  extremely searing & often shifting walled noise. This C20/ digital release appeared in February of this year on ominous Recordings- and as of this review the label still have copies of the tape left.

Geert Kohler is the solo project of Italian Francesco Perizzolo- who’s behind the death industrial / occult noise project Satanismo Calibro 9, and also runs the  SoundScape 713  label. The projects been sporadically active since 2011, releasing so far around six releases. Seemingly all of the projects work is themed either around porn/ fetish.

The white shelled tape features a label on one side, and this is presented in a monochrome sleeve. The sleeve opens out in a grainy full nude picture of a women parting her legs, and going from the titles here the theme is someone having sex with someone else’s wife.

Though each side only features a single track- on the first side we get a series of titles detailing the sexual encounter in very blunt fashion. But instead of relaying the full & lengthy titles here, I leave that to those who pick this up- I’m not doing this to be prudish…I just feel it will leave some impact/ shock value.  The first sides track begins with an eye watering blend of slowly forking high pitched noise, & deep juddering mids & lows. As the track progresses the whole thing has a wonderfully crude & hacking slurred quality to it, as Perizzolo sluggishly grinds & melds together the slow shifting weave of deep billowing burrows, bothersome hacks, cluttering rattles, with the occasional high pitched squeal. The whole thing has quite a nice almost slurred instrumental PE quality about it, though you’d certainly say genre wise it’s sits in the category of dynamic & shifting walled noise.

The second sides track, has the simply title of “ Anyway I understand you, Poor Cuckold”. This is really a continual of the first side track, with another selection of slowly sliding & grinding noise textures fed out into a continual flow of shifting wall- craft. There are certainly more of a muddled & muddy feel on this side, with the texture bleed & blending together in a nicely perverse manner- there also seems to be slight more meaty & murky grinding mids & lows here, with some really bone rattling reverberations going on.

If you have a penchant for brain drilling & at times ear piecing walled-noise, with a murky-yet-shifting flow to it I think you’ll be rather taken by what we have here. This is my first taste of Geert Kohler, and I must say it’s made me curious to hear more.  Certainly one for fans of more sleaze bound noise-making.
