I began making noise as A Raja’s Mesh Men in 2013 and continued up until late 2016, most releases under this name can be found here. The alias (and the URL) are an anagram of my name.
I had my live debut performing under this alias at Georges House Gallery (Strange Cargo), Folkestone, on 18th December 2014 for the first show put on by the Vanity Pill tape label, alongside Cropsey, Ego Death and Alocasia Garden.
I later performed under this alias supporting touring artists Lorenzo Abattoir and Clive Henry on one occasion and Cremation Lily, Wet Nurse. and Cementimental on another. These were both part of a monthly series of live events that I held at Ryan’s Bar (Stoke Newington) called The People’s Noise – which ran from February to August 2015 – many of which were recorded to video by the amazing Elyssa Iona and now hosted on my Youtube channel.
More recently, I have begun making noise under my own name, and under the alias Shearman – which can all be found here. During the COVID-19 pandemic I streamed a number of noise sets under the alias ‘Nebulous Noise~cast’ – streaming to Twitch, at the following address – as well as some appearances on others’ streams, such as Theo of Territorial Gobbing’s Heinous Whining, NIM’s FEAST, Isolated Mass and the Communal Orchestra Viral Improvistation Day (otherwise known as Covidfest19).
At the end of 2022 I formed a new noise duo with my partner Alyce Ice – called Drooling.
And in January of 2023 I formed a new solo project for maximal harsh noise and feedback worship – called Gutter Carrion.
