Bastard Noise coexisted along side the power violence group Man Is The Bastard since June of 1991. When M.I.T.B. met its demise Bastard Noise gained strength from its earliest audio offerings of caveman electronics and vocals. Since then Bastard Noise has evolved into its current contemporary status. John Wiese has existed as a member of Bastard Noise from 1999 to 2004 and has contributed to evolve Bastard Noise into a predatory galactic monster, with more than 40 releases, by combining Bastard Noise's original caveman electronic roots with its new atmospheric sounds.
