KNURL + guests at LIVE! on Elgin
Presented by Public Display of Affliction
Canadian-based Alan Bloor (a.k.a. Knurl)’s main inspiration came from working in welding shops, harnessing the sounds of grinding metal to create incredibly powerful harsh noise. Since Knurl’s debut release, ‘Initial Shock,’ in 1994, Bloor has issued numerous titles on his own Panta Rhei label as well as many other labels including the legendary RRRecords, Self Abuse, and Entartete Kunst (to name a few.) Knurl has also collaborated with other artists including Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth.
Precision-engineered electronic malfunctions for the induction of unrestrained paranoid psychosis and other behaviour modification countermeasures.
