NWvic - Endless Meaningless Unhelpful and Uncalled for Drivel

OUT JUNE 21st, 2019! Available in digital format. Also available in limited edition Vinyl, CD and cassette tape!

As you can imagine, it's been a hard couple of years for it-clings. Having propelled himself to the very pinnacle of success the self-named "biggest fucking thing in the whole fucking world" has spiraled into a self-deprecating pit of despair. Nothing much has been going on since his last release in 2012. Back in those days he experienced all the glamour and exuberance of a fantasy world of his own creation, a made up post-modern existence where he filled his emptiness with excess and inflated his ego with lies and bravado. And when that failed him, he could always fall back on just getting angry about everything. That was his way of coping with shit.

But jump ahead a few years and everything has caught up with him. His anger and hostility towards the world was perhaps just as empty and meaningless as the dull pitiful lives of those mindless sheep he used to rail against. Maybe there was no space in this new world for it-clings. But at some point he met Nerve War, and by met I mean he encountered him on the internet. This guy still had hope, still had dreams, and still wanted to watch the world burn. With Nerve War's help there was still a place for it-clings.

Are you looking for answers? Well, “Endless Meaningless Unhelpful and Uncalled for Drivel” isn't the album for you. What is it? It's a hodgepodge of disjointed thoughts and songs, the pounding bass and scathing synthesis adds to the atrocities spoken by it-clings. The assholes behind this filth are connected only through their complacency in the pointless banality of modern existence. This isn't exactly something new and it-clings isn't the first to admit it. “Endless Meaningless Unhelpful and Uncalled for Drivel” isn't the answer, it's part of the problem.

Unbelievably, this will be it-clings’ third full length release. He has appeared on countless releases by other artists (actually a very countable 18) and has written several books. Originally from Toronto, he lived in Halifax, Nova Scotia for far too long. That was a mistake. Halifax is terrible. He now lives in Toronto again.

Nerve War has written/released countless albums (again, a very countable 14) under various project names encompassing many different styles such as metal, industrial, electronic, noise and experimental. Nerve War is from many places but for some reason he currently lives in the bowels of Kansas City, Misery.

it-clings - I'm the Biggest Fucking Thing in the Whole Fucking World

No one had any idea what was unleashed upon the world with the creation of it-clings. Most people didn't even notice at all. But the idea that this idiot could somehow become the biggest fucking thing in the whole fucking world seemed insane. There was absolutely no reason for such a thing to happen. No one asked for it, no one wanted it and no one could have made it possible even if those two other points had not been true. And yet BANG, with the release of the 2012 double CD "I'm the biggest fucking thing in the whole fucking world" it became reality.

No one has ever understood it-clings. You don't get him either. Is it satire? Is it social commetary? Is it attention seeking? Probably all three and more. "I'm very uncomfortable with what he is saying," you say, and you're not alone. it-clings becomes everything that is terrible within the world and by absorbing all this into him he expands, he becomes engorged with this filth and expands more. Then, you know what happens? Somehow, somewhere... people like this. It makes no sense but they do. They think they understand but they don't, but they are the worst people in the world. They don't get it. No one ever has.

"I don't think this qualifies as art," you conclude. You're right.

But can even the legendary it-clings do it all alone? You may think yes, but you'd be totally wrong. To take on this world he has gathered around him, like a pile of lecherous parasites, a smattering of musical artists of different styles, who have been blessed with the mission of turning it-clings words into song. This double CD features guest appearances by Greg Kowalczyk (compUterus), Dan Barrett (Worms of the Earth), Bart Piette (Dead Man's Hill), Jorge Oliveira (Thermidor), Justin Brink (Pneumatic Detach), En & Arc (DYM), Autovoice, Adam Edge (Razor Edge), Yann Faussurier (Iszoloscope, Memmaker), Nick Gorman (Fractured), Jonny Darko (Receiver), Fred S. (Katastroslavia) James Church (Lucidstatic), Ethan Moseley (Promonium Jesters), & Jonbob! Mastered by Johnny S.

icvspd - The All Too Logical Descent into Madness

it-clings and Pneumatic Detach combined forces to release this 2007 juggernaut of an album. It is quite possibly the angriest album ever released.

It's a reinvention of the archetypal industrial album. With a cynicism that borders on paranoia and psychopathy, this concept album drives the nail of truth home into the surface of all that we deem trivial and mundane, and all that we casually choose to ignore. Searching past the banality of existence it is a stark look at the world where the only correct conclusions, the only logical conclusions are those of utter madness. And where does the blame for this insanity lie? It lies within everything and everyone.

it-clings - Fuck it All

We heard what you said: "why the fuck should I buy a bunch of crappy fucking cds or hunt down a pile of digital downloads by talentless hacks just to get my hands on all the it-clings tracks! This is total fucking bullshit." And you know what, you're 100% correct. Why the fuck should you waste your bandwidth downloading bullshit songs by bullshit artists when all you really want is to get your dirty hands on a collection of it-clings tracks?

That's what this release is all about: it's all the it-clings tracks put together into one god damned hit parade of a bitter angry yell fest.

Did we ask anyone's permission before releasing this? Fuck no. In essence it's totally illegal. Are we concerned about this? Fuck no. Anyone who has a problem with this release can kiss my mother fucking asshole.

Although when you sit back and listen to it-clings track after it-clings track you should start to ask yourself, "who the fuck is this angry belligerent asshole? And why the fuck should I be listening to his bullshit ideas?" And to this there is no response. Maybe even listening to a legitimate copy of this release should be illegal. Maybe you should have just stuck with listening to all the other safe tracks from all those other crappy releases that you didn't even buy in the first place. it-clings is obviously deranged. He is obviously a grave threat to your safe moral code.

But at least, you're now thinking, that buying this release will help keep the music industry alive, will help keep artists producing quality music, will make you feel good for supporting the artists behind the music you love and all that other total bullshit propaganda you've been hearing. It's not true. As soon as you buy this release the money will be instantly gone, spent on useless bullshit and drugs and booze. Probably the money you spent on this release will end up, through a few ill thought transactions, right in the hands of the terrorists that wish to destroy you. It's probably not a bad idea: those terrorists probably should destroy you. You are horrible people!
