Home Run are a Sydney-Based noise duo consisting of German/Australian Jay Cruikshank and Nathan Roche. Their intention is to make racket to old Baseball radio broadcasts from various decades and push the limits of what could seem like a very narrow and repetitive idea.

For their first release they've selected recordings strictly from the 1950s and hope to progress the style and quality of the cassettes as they make their way into each era from 50s unto present day. Thus becoming more listenable and accessible as the technology of both broadcast and home-recording style increases.

Working with obscure alien soundscapes and distorted feedback. Home Run create an alternate and even disturbing universe where baseball will never die and headaches will never end.

Lincoln Brown (Ghastly Spats/Housewives) features uninvitedly on two-tracks as a demonic next door neighbour screaming over the radio static on the top floor. A harrowing portrait of an overpopulated and feuding inner-city loft.

HOME RUN like all other noise enthusiasts will test the patience of those before them. But even if you only last a few innings of the game at least you can always come back to the highlights.

Playing at a dug out near you.

Take me out to the ball game!
