Reporter: The art of noise revisited
Michelle Olley blows her eardrums
Sunday 12 October 1997
After the sonic storm, a period of chill-out/bonding time for those who made it to the end is in order. This is the point of the experience for Harden. You come, you feel the tension in yourself build with the music and your mind rebels against the unrelenting noise attack. To get through it, you dance, you lose your mind in the sound, and with it you lose the tension - musical meltdown therapy for the hardcore generation. Though my head throbbed for most of the next day (my own fault for getting carried away and putting my head on the speaker...), I have to say, I had a blast.
Harderfasterlouder is fortnightly (next night is on 16th October) at The Office, 3-5 Rathbone Place, London W1. Entry is pounds 3 or free with wheels (skates, boards or chairs).
