"For fans of Swans, Prurient, Wolf Eyes. Margaret Chardiet was born and raised in New York City. She has been making power electronics/death industrial music under the name PHARMAKON for five years. As a founding member of the Red Light District collective in Far Rockaway, NY, she has been a figurehead in the underground experimental scene since the age of Seventeen. Engineered by Sean Ragon of CULT OF YOUTH at his self-built recording studio Heaven Street, "Abandon" is PHARMAKON's first proper studio album and also her first widely distributed release. Unlike other experimental projects, PHARMAKON does not improvise when performing or recording. She is concise and exact; each song/movement is linear with a clear trajectory. Perhaps more than any other style of music, noise is a genre almost exclusively dominated by male performers. Spin Magazine is apt to point out that her, "perfectionism might explain why her recordings are few and far between - a rarity in a scene where noise bros are want to puke out hour after endless hour of stoned basement jams into a limitless stream of limited-edition tapes.""
