Where is This
Where is This is my noise project that has been active since 2007. Spanning noise, harsh noise, pe, drone and HNW, there has been numerous releases since its first in 2009. The WiT Discogs page is regularly updated with any new releases. Also, regularly updated is the WiT Facebook page. To listen to some WiT, go to the WiT Bandcamp.
Below is not a discography, but a chronology (lookit me being fancy) of the Where is This records spanning 2007 – 2013. AS MORE RECENT WORKS ARE FINALISED, THEY WILL BE ADDED TO THIS LIST (which was done for a zine, but remained unused, so I thought I’d stick it up here).
