Biography

Black Sun Productions is the project of Massimo & Pierce aka the Anarcocks, a duo of performance artists and sound experimentalists operating and transmitting from LOFT23, a non-geographical location in Switzerland.

Massimo and Pierce had previously been well known as artists in Zurich, but they gained international attention when their performance piece, “Plastic Spider Thing”, became part of the industrial band Coil’s European tour in 2002.

After this tour, Black Sun Productions continued performing throughout Europe. These performance pieces were often controversial, involving nudity, sexuality and urinating on stage. In 2003, their offices in Zurich were raided by police who seized computers and files, among other things. Undeterred, they continued working, turning again to recording. In 2004 they emerged with two CDs, “Astral Walk” and “Toilet Chant”.

In 2005 Massimo and Pierce issued “OperettAmorale, a tribute to Bertolt Brecht and includes covers of his songs with such guest musicians as Coil, doing a version of “A List Of Wishes”, recorded with John Balance before he died; “The Ballad Of Sexual Tendency” with Lydia Lunch providing vocals; and H.R. Giger performing “Seeräuber-Jenny” and providing cover images. Massimo and Pierce have also collaborated with the Italian industrial music project Mariae Nascenti in performance and on the CDs “Morituri Te Salutant” and “Anarcadian Night”.

    Стал слушать только из-за одной композиции "Time Uncaptured", которая по крайней мере самая лучшая, и которая для меня является наилучшим из всей дискографии. Есть ещё пожалуй один альбом "OperettAmorale", который весьма неплох и стоит послушать. А остальное всё, как-то так себе..

    magick fading......you two are on the same level as Coil. comparing the two groups is stupid as they independently have their own unique ideas, although being part of the same movement. alas the magick is fading.....the death of Jhonn Balance, the death of Peter Christopherson (and thus the end of TG), the end of Black Sun Productions....the magick is fading.......
