Audio Drudge was a zine launched in 1991 by Jason H. Mantis – prior to starting Malignant Records, then – to promote the then blossoming post industrial music scene. The articles and reviews were devoted to dark ambient music, the nascent drone scene, etc. I cannot claim to be a fan of the genre, though the sound quality of this cassette is still ear catching today. The Voyce Of Eye track is a richly textured electronic soundscape reminiscent of some Zoviet-France. The Arcane Device is David Myers unleashing his feedback machine to good effect. Left Hand Right Hand was a fine british band mostly led by drums and the occasional bass. Their 2 tracks here are live recordings, clearly more industrial a la Z’ev than their CDs. To see the kind of graphics featured on another issue of the zine, check out issue #4 on this russian page (though the d/l link is dead over there).
