Chaos A.D. - Buzz Caner (1998)

Another one of Squarepusher's aliases, this release holds intricate beat programming and some serious acid undertones. This is the Jenkinson I'd like to hear more of, extremely reminiscent to tracks such as Venus No. 17. "Dreaded Pestilence" is quite possibly the noisiest track I've heard from Tom, sounding almost like a precursor to speedcore/breakcore, Venetian Snares/Speedranch's collab Making Orange Things. Much more of a pioneer in noisecore than most people would give it credit for, this album is a must-listen.
