Whether I like it or not, “prurient” is a romantic word, and it’s also the stage name of Dominick Fernow’s noise project that has flourished for over a decade. I also like to think that Fernow makes romantic noise music, if such a thing exists.
Prurient’s new album Bermuda Drain will see release on July 19 on Hydra Head. Those are some watery, sexy words right there and it’s makes me want to line the bathtub with gothic candles and just unwind to some melodic electronics. The album will be available on CD, 2xLP, and limited-edition cassette (with bonus tracks). You may also know Fernow as the head of shop and label Hospital Productions and as a contributor to Wes Eisold’s Cold Cave.
Recently, I contemplated on Twitter regarding why there are no romantic words for male ejaculate. Then, by chance or fate I write this new story. Fernow is a busy-ass man and deserves recognition, which is why I am officially naming sperm “Prurient.” You’re welcome. Now go write a poem about the pristine flow of your prurient while listening to the engaging synthesizer loops of Bermuda Drain.
