Anus Comes Alive! is a live recording from the Flywheel (in Easthampton, MA) by harsh noise wizard Bull Anus.  The noise is strong, heavy in the Government Alpha / Merzbow vein, but with some subtle electronics going on underneath the racket.  Dense and abrasive, the sound will rattle the listener - noiseheads will love it, but others will switch it right off.  Be warned, though, this is one long live track, not the collection of shorter pieces we were treated to on Bull Anus' debut.  No short attention spans permitted.

The highlight of the disc comes when Bull Anus thrusts the noise into a throbbing, gushing electronic work-out, complete with skewed chirping bird sounds, juicy noise slurches, and a windy ambience predicting the fall from up high.  This is noise.
