The Full Use of Nothing

Feral Confine

1985
Not On Label

For a few years in the mid 1980s, Andrew Chalk made music under the project name Ferial Confine. While he only released three cassettes, all in 1985, this slim body of work is incredibly significant to the development of noise music, none more so than The Full Use Of Nothing, an album that was reissued on LP in 1999 and CD in 2013. The Full Use Of Nothing is an incredibly rich, tactile collection of instrumental pieces, most all sounds apparently sourced from contact mic’d plates of metal; the concomitant thunderstorm of harried texture is powerfully disorienting, a masterclass in tension.
