New cassette release on Pilgrim Talk (done ages & ages ago) Me and Tim Olive.
Tim someplace in Japan and paddling splashlessly and not through fluctuating peer pressure above the PU's getting hot. I was sent this material and, over an anvils back, gave it a wallop. Tim etched our seal of approval with an emery wheel then glazed it in thick engine grease.

New Zealand/Singapore 
Tour April '14!!

Back from a 5 week tour with Staer. Was an incredible trip.
Many, many memorable moments plus some awesome shows in strange, unexpected locations.
Big thanks to Staer for stricking nexus chimerical across my brain.

7" split with Staer now available from Staalplaat.

"........Captain Beefheart meets the Residents on a LSD trip."  Vital Weekly March 2014

" The blast side shows a yet unrevealed face of Horacio Pollard experimental work. Three short pieces assembled together as a constantly growing nightmarish flow. Reminiscences of The Residents blend with cold and slightly dissonant, demonic funky grooves. This is breakdancing music for George A. Romero zombies. Truly, hellishly beautiful stuff."  Stereo Killer 2014

Review on Sound Projector

"Horacio Pollard is an overlooked genius of experimental noise, and I’ve had a soft spot for everything I’ve heard by this English-Argentine fellow".

"....he keeps his poisonous eruptions very listenable through use of simple repetitions, arriving at a very economical species of guitar riffage that makes this tape every bit as entertaining as a Led Zeppelin LP"  The Sound Projector.

Thankyou so much all you wonderful people that helped me put this epic journey together,
Please take a peep at my photos, u'll see what i mean!

Hanoi at Sound Stuff festival

review from hanoi rock city:
"Horacio Pollard was missing his mouth-mic, which adds a huge dimension to his set. Perhaps the noise wall which he subsequently produced was too much for the average HRC experimental music listener, but it was rich, varied, and powerful. It was surprising, and certainly not the average ‘noise artist’s set of white-brown-pink granular speckles. This was a huge mix of overdriven, schizophrenic, and constantly changing hardcore techno records played through a cement mixer, backwards and with intent. Sometimes it really felt like it was going to drop, but it was so intensely varied that it never needed to." Josh Kopecek

HORACIO POLLARD • The Words Came Through The Bung

Half English, half Argentine "noise-eccentric" HORACIO POLLARD has been active in the field of experimental music since 2002 and has released a number of CD/Rs on various labels as well as a split 7" with MOHA!. A member of CLIFFORD TORUS and FULLY BLOWN DENTAL REFORM, he also runs his own label Neigh%Music. Armed with a Korg DDD1 sampler / drum machine, he delivers here an exhilarating avalanche of distorted jams filled with heavy analogue riffs, hypnotic jazzy grooves and fierce noise-drenched rhymes. DISSECTING TABLE meets MOHA! meets GODFLESH or tribal industrial funk at its most devastating! 
sample track

A new free release on PIGHOLE MUSIC.

(drums and mics stuck in gob, 1 take, stereo 1/4" tape recording)
"Intense and ugly electronic noise abounds when we enter the undersea world of Horacio Pollard, a Berlin-living musician who spends some time in the UK and runs his Neigh Percent micro-label. Baracuda (NEIGH%MUSIC), like the vicious sharp-toothed saltwater fish which is its namesake, rips into you from the start with acid tones, obnoxious feedback, and harsh shrieking vocalising. Each track is a short episode which ends as suddenly as a nightmare trip to the sonic dentist of pain. Yet we may peel away these crusty layers of noisy cottage pie to expose the sweet filling within Pollard’s music. He controls his powerful forces as surely as an occult magus, yet also knows when to allow his alchemical serpents to slip off the leash and slither wildly into the air with their feathered scales. The further we go into this short album, the more dynamic and textured the music doth become, such as the very enjoyable (to me) two-minute ‘Shephards Prop’ which in this context is almost like pop music. In fact there might actually be a conventional pop-music record lurking somewhere at the bottom of this particular foetid trifle. However if you prefer long duration and relentless attack, then click on to the 10-minute ‘Itching-Togo’ where your predilections will be fully satisfied. Nine tracks are advertised on this CDR, although my version of VLC Media Player will only recognise eight of them, and #6 won’t play at all."

Review from Ed Pinsent, The Sound projector, 2012
"MoHa! and Horacio Pollard teamed up in 2011 to play some live gigs together, and this split single (GAFFER RECORDS GR30) was one result of their activities. The Norwegian duo MoHa! occupy the ‘skier’ side with their familiar intense synth and drum racket, with frantic thrashy noise which reaches levels of intensity that ensure that both players will be burned out before they even reach their 12th birthdays. English noise-eccentric Horacio Pollard creates a thick and chaotic collage of sound on his side, which is completely disjointed and unhinged, the work of a true madman. These crazed juxtapositions of odd field recordings with excessive electronic noise will induce instant blood clots in the brains of many through their total lack of logic and restraint. Nifty package for this release, using inserted printed transparencies and coloured card, and a clear vinyl pressing."
JUNE 2011
Finished joint record with TIM OLIVE. and mastered by Danny O'Really
