'The Pulp Sessions': ‘When I heard the TNB / Organum ‘Pulp’ 7” in the mid-‘80s it was one of the noisiest things I had ever heard and I had heard plenty of Industrial Music and Power Electronica as well as a lot of earlier noisy music. On ‘The Pulp Sessions II’ Part I the noise levels and sounds change throughout the course of both sides, but the level of pandemonium remains constant. There are loads of feedback, radio, scraping, clanking, and other sounds, chopping in and out continuously. Somewhere near the end, I started to fall into an almost relaxing trance. This feeling continued through Part II. I am certainly not recommending this as Ambient Music, but it is a very interesting and great CD. Swill Radio
’I was once in a room where a copy of the TNB / Organum ‘Pulp’ 7” was produced and I swear that people drew breath at the sight of it. ‘The Pulp Sessions II’ includes two extended workings from which ‘Pulp’ was realized. Two tracks (Part I & II) of constant churning, clanging, squeaking, stamping, shuffling and destroying sounds of an indeterminate nature that could have been recorded with various items of metal / junk. A reminder that back in the early '80s a brave few were making noises that still reverberate today.’ Idwal Fisher
’…Through David Jackman and his label Aeroplane Records we have a single that has become almost, if not ‘as’ influential as ‘Changez Les Blockeurs.’ A collaboration between Organum and TNB, the 1984 single ‘Pulp’ is a more mystifying slice of what was going on back then. I don’t own a copy but I was once in a room where one was produced and as Tristan Tzara is my witness I swear that people drew breath at the sight of it.
‘The Pulp Sessions’ are the extended workings from which ‘Pulp’ was realised. The results being not that far removed from ‘Changez Les Blockeurs,’ in that we have two sides of constant churning, clanging, squeaking, stamping, shuffling and destroying sounds of an indeterminate nature that could have been recorded with various items of metal junk in a shed in the North East of England during a rain shower some time in the early 1980s. Though whether Jackman ever made the trip to that shed in the North East or TNB visited Jackman’s shed is unknown to me. These are more austere recordings, denser with Organum filling out the sound. But with what? Who knows. Maybe what’s missing is the shed itself? ‘The Pulp Sessions’ wont carry the same gravitas as ‘Pulp’ which we can put down to the passage of time but these two twenty-minute tracks are still a reminder that way back in the early ‘80s a brave few were making noises that still reverberate today.’ Idwal Fisher
Two short excerpts from The Pulp Sessions were included on the TNB / Organum Pulp 7" (Aeroplane Records, 1984)
