FACT Focus 2: Dominick Fernow

FACT Focus is a brand new mix series.

Regular FACT readers may have noticed that occasionally, to accompany a large feature or list, the author has provided a mix summarizing the article in handy-to-absorb MP3 format. Well, we’ve decided to flesh this out into a series.

Episodes of FACT Focus will, um, focus on a specific artist, label, scene or sound. The mixes won’t be weekly, but they’ll always go the extra mile in terms of highlighting hidden classics and mapping-out specific eras or sounds.

This week’s edition comes from FACT’s very own John Twells, who dusts off his collection of 7″s, tapes, LPs and (cough) MP3s to unravel that deep catalog of Dominick Fernow, one of noise music’s most enduring figures. The mix mostly focuses on Fernow’s main project, Prurient, but also takes the time to shine a spotlight on his beat-oriented material as Vatican Shadow, black metal experiments as Ash Pool and more. This is not a selection for the faint hearted.

If you’re in London, look out for Prurient playing at the Hospital Productions label night on November 13, part of the Clock Strikes 13 series – more information on Facebook.
