16 Bitch Pile Up is a noise trio made up of Sarah Bernat, Sarah Cathers & Shannon Walter. I previously uploaded their Def N Dum cassette here and now here’s a CDR of them. The CD contains 5 tracks, 4 of which are live recordings and the 5th is a track called Invisble Adversaries. The 4 live tracks are all of excellent quality and must be sound board sourced. The CDR was released for 16BPU’s appearance at ATP 06 and was limited to 40 copies.
16 Bitch Pile Up – ADAD [2006, TripleSSS]
Here we have a tape put out by the all female noise troupe 16 Bitch Pile Up. The band have been pretty quiet as of late so I’m not sure who’s in the group anymore but it still seems to be made up of Sarah Bernat, Sarah Cathers & Shannon Walter. This particular tape was released on their own Triple SSS label (Sarah, Sarah, Shannon get it?) and I’m guessing it was released in 2006 perhaps. I’m not sure of the exact date as I bought this off ebay for a pound.. According to the 16BPU release list this tappe consists of just Sarah Bernat & Shannon Walter so maybe the band name actually is Def N Dum? There’s a Def N Dum – Straight To Video VHS on Triple SSS as well so maybe it is, if anyone knows then do let me know.
Anyway, it’s pretty obvious that the music on this tape is made by a stripped down 16BPU as it’s nowhere near as full on as their other releases. It’s still in that drone horror movie soundtrack style they do so well but it’s a lot more basic sounding (I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing) than normal.
Seemingly this was housed in a sock when it was originally released but the seller on eBay mentioned that this was long gone as he “put it on my head and ripped it”.
