Armpit (the duo of Noone Clayton and Jon Sugar)
were heirs to New Zealand's tradition of atonal rock a` la Dead C.
Butta Daze (Celebrate Psi Phenomenon, 2003) and
and the double-disc The Praying Mantis (Pseudo Arcana, 2003) were
the musical equivalent of galaxies of unstable antimatter.
Mano O Mano (Rhizome, 2005) and
the five-disc Reach Out (Dreamtime Taped Sounds, 2007) refined the
concept for the mini-album Tron (Last Visible Dog, 2009).
Clayton Noone's project CJA offered
psychedelic bedroom folk-rock on
Ironclad (Last Visible Dog, 2005) but then greatly expanded its
stylistic palette on the
double-disc Pink Metal (PseudoArcana, 2007), a genre-defying hodgepodge of free-form, atonal, droning and folk music.
Impact Wound (TanzProcesz, 2007) sounded like the ideal conflation of three historic strands of New Zealand's rock music: Dead C's wall of noise, Roy Montgomery's guitar soundpainting and Clean lo-fi punk-folk.
Noone also formed the prolific Futurians that released albums of
lo-fi industrial garage-rock such as:
Exterminate (Pink Skulls, 2003),
Faktory (Soft Abuse, 2004),
Robot In Disguise (The Seedy R, 2004),
Pimp My Tardis (267 lattajjaa, 2005),
the double-album Evil Dead (Foxglove, 2006),
Spock Ritual (Invisible Spies, 2007),
Chaos Manner (Last Visible Dog, 2010), etc.
One of their members was Pumice (Stephan Neville).
