a decade of noise & politics – datacide issues 1-10

A major project in the works for quite some time, this is a complete reprint of the issues 1-10 of datacide, which originally appeared from 1997-2008. Titled “EVERYTHING ELSE IS EVEN MORE RIDICULOUS”, the 364 page volume collects unique material, most of which has been out of print for many years, charting a one-of-a-kind history of the counter-cultures associated with electronic music and free festivals.

The free space of the party met the free space of the page and then you got a dynamism that encouraged expression and perversions and tangents because the covers held it together as a nomadic movement and you were convinced that music had catalysed it all and that music was somehow inherently political as it sidestepped rhetoric and dogma, and absented us from control addicts and the free space of the page was a kind of historic party, a kind of invisible college, a launching pad for driftage.” Flint Michigan


Almanac for Noise & Politics 2015

If you’re already familiar with datacide magazine and our related record label for extreme electronic music - Praxis - then you’re familiar with the efforts we’ve made over the last two decades to continually explore the intersections of radical politics and underground rave culture, experimental and extreme electronic music, moments of free spaces and momentary freak-outs and how these can be represented on the page and through the speakers. If not, this may be a good place to start.  Either way, the Almanac for noise & politics 2015 contains a selection of articles and excerpts from various issues of datacide, as well as a peek into the activities of the Praxis label and its offshoots. This first edition is meant to be a brief introduction to the wide range of topics covered in datacide.

Articles include: Post-Media Operators by Howard Slater/Eddie Miller/Flint Michigan, No Stars here (track -1) by TechNET, A Loop Da Loop Era – Towards an (Anti-)history of Rave by Neil Transpontine, Radical Intersections by Christoph Fringeli, Vinyl Meltdown by Alexis Wolton, Plague in this Town by Matthew Hyland, Just Say Non – Nazism, Narcissism and Boyd Rice by whomakesthenazis.com, Interview with Christoph Fringeli/Praxis Records from Objection to Procedure, a new short story by Dan Hekate, as well as a commented catalogue. This is interspersed by new visual work by Matthieu Bourel, Lynx, Sansculotte, Tóng Zhi, and Zombieflesheater!

Full colour cover and 104 inside pages in A6 format!

About this Shop:

Praxis started as a label in South London with the first two 12"s coming out at the end of November and the beginning of December 1992. Since then we released a slow but steady stream of releases in the fields of experimental hardcore, breakcore, deep bass, noise and other forms of challenging audio. Through the sub-label Sub/Version we unleashed some hard drum'n'bass and epic breakcore, and we pressed and distributed many releases ranging from dark dubstep and electro to extreme breakcore and experimental beats by labels such as Darkmatter, Dirty Needles, Low Res, Unearthly, Zhark International and others. We also produce Datacide - the Magazine for Noise & Politics, the latest issue just came out!

This is our shop. 

Here we stock a comprehensive selection of the styles of music Praxis, Sub/Version and friends & comrades cover and touch on, but also branch out into other fields of the avant-gardistic, dangerous and subversive. In addition to audio, our print section with new and second hand radical books and magazines (in english and german) has been growing considerably over the last months.

We are now based in Berlin where you can visit our shop:

Postal Strike Ended

The strike is finished now, but there may be some delays of packages as a consequence in the coming days.

POSTAL STRIKE IN GERMANY: Since June 8 the postal services are partially on strike. Initially this has only affected deliveries inside Germany. For this reason it has previously not affected deliveries of orders from this shop with the exception of single book or cd orders, since we are shipping records inside Germany with a different company.

Since June 24 the strike has been extended to international sorting centres which means that delays with orders shipped with the post are possible to happen.

Currently this can affect:

- small deliveries of CD's or books within Germany. Record orders and larger orders in general are not affected.

- European orders for up to 1kg = about 4 records or equivalent. larger orders should not be affected.

- any orders from outside of Europe.

This should only cause delays of a few days, if at all, but in case you were wondering why your order is taking longer than usual, this is likely to be the reason.

WE SUPPRT THE STRIKE as the postal company is trying to outsource various services to extremely badly paying companies, putting pressure on the workforce and their already low wages.

We kindly ask our customers for a few days more patience in the delivery time of their orders.
