Other highlights of 2011: Noisefest III at De Kreun with a devastating set from Damien Dubrovnik, HNW fest in Paris, Svartvit at café Vera Kortrijk, France at Kraakfest, Glenn Branca Ensemble in Paris, Carter Tutti at Sonic City (De Kreun) and another amusing ATP fest in Minehead. Lots of great records too in 2011, I'll limit myself to the noise related records with just one exception: the new Charalambides record "Exile'" is a little wonder. Furthermore, my record of the year is Prurient's "Bermuda Drain": surprising maybe, but I think it is an honest, breathtaking, and even brutal album. Other albums I really enjoyed last year were by Alberich, Damien Dubrovnik, Robedoor, Nate Young, Deaf Center, Grouper, Vatican Shadow, Rene Hell, Lussuria, Hive Mind, Bridget Hayden and Tim Hecker.
It's 2012. Let's start a riot.
