Bastard Noise began as a combination side project and alter ego (with early releases often bearing both names) of the powerviolence group Man Is The Bastard in June of 1991. When M.I.T.B. ended, Bastard Noise continued, mostly through the use of so called "caveman electronics" (the term that Henry Barnes gave his homemade tube oscillators) and vocals. Since then, the project has gone through various forms and sounds ranging from heavy rock forms to power electronics to full on noise. In 1999 John Wiese joined which moved the project into more atmospheric territory (before leaving in 2004.)
Eric Wood and W.T. Nelson remained as the core of the project and the recent return of Joel Connell, along with Danny Walker's arrival, pushed the project back toward a sound similar to Man Is The Bastard, yet again.
