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:
Howard Slater/Eddie Miller/Flint Michigan: Post-Media Operators
TechNET: No Stars here (track -1)
Neil Transpontine: A Loop Da Loop Era – Towards an (Anti-)history of Rave
Christoph Fringeli: Radical Intersections
Alexis Wolton: Vinyl Meltdown
Matthew Hyland: Plague in this Town
Strelnikov: Just Say Non – Nazism, Narcissism and Boyd Rice
Objection to Procedure: Interview with Christoph Fringeli/Praxis Records from 2000
Dan Hekate: Music Makes the People
as well as a commented catalogue.

This is interspersed by new visual work by Matthieu Bourel, Lynx, Sansculotte, Tóng Zhi, and Zombieflesheater!
