Frank Goshit (from Quebec)
is one of the pioneers of shitnoise –
intentionally bad recordings recorded on handheld devices (usually cassette).
Frank played guitar in the noisecore band Deche-Charge back in the mid-90s (and would later infamously have his own "imposter" version of said band for a year or two), and along with fellow Deche-Charge member Dan-Charge, co-founded the legendary GOCHARGE RECORDS.
Gocharge's releases mainly consisted of either Frank or Dan (sometimes both) recording under different project names on a tape recorder. Releases varied from acoustic noisecore, spoken word, trash-talking Seth Putnam for signing to Earache, being stupid while watching tv, doing the laundry while singing GG Allin songs...literally anything goes. And the tapes were mostly limited to less than a dozen or so copies.
Many of Frank's recent releases also consist of him tending to his livestock (chickens and donkeys), his cats, tapping on plates while yelling, walking to the store, and riding his bike, among other things.
Today (May 29th, 2018) I received this package from Frank in the mail. I haven't listened to any of them just yet, but knowing Frank they will no doubt be amazing listens. I am especially fond of the packaging on the Common Sense Cassettes releases.
I started recording "noise music" in early 2004, completely unaware of any "scenes" or other individuals doing this sort of thing. A lot of lo-fi recordings on a portable tape player, oftentimes guitar or bass feedback drone and delay.
