M.S.B.R. & Iuchi Kengo - One (1998) [256]

"We are finally releasing our long spoken of collaboration between Tokyo’s Koji Tano, AKA M.S.B.R., and Kengo Iuchi. The release features three live duets nested between a solo studio track from each artist.

Tano’s Molten Salt Breeder Reactor opens the disc with the epic Psychic Blue. Excellent harsh noise with strong influences of musique concrète and electro-acoustic. The great production on this 22 minute track makes it so powerful that it is frightening at times.

Kengo Iuchi’s style is the polar opposite to that of M.S.B.R. He describes it as death folk. It incorporates maniacal guitar clanging and insane banter in a style comparable to elements of Keiji Haino or Diamanda Galas in their most demanding moments.

During the collaborative work M.S.B.R. lays low providing spacy electronics with streaks of noise between the insane banter of Kengo Iuchi."

Otomo Yoshihide's New Jazz Ensemble - Dreams (2002) [FLAC&V0]

An avant-garde jazz album from Otomo Yoshihide, the guy behind Ground Zero among others. This is perhaps an easier on ears and more accessible album which I'd recommend for someone who is not quite comfortable with the more sinister side of him or for someone just looking to get into his work.

Kazumoto Endo - Never Gonna Make You Cry (2001) [FLAC&V0]

Some more Kazumoto Endo for you all. This one is really short. I also recommend hearing his album "While You Were Out" for anyone who hasn't already, it should be availible on some other blogs.

Hijokaidan - King of Noise (1985) [ABR224]

Freeform improvisation somewhat largely based around guitars and distortion, drowning in feedback. Hijokaidan is kind of a legend among japanoise and this is their, in my opinion, best album.

Studio - West Coast (2007) [V0]

Mediterranean music from Sweden. Actual original release in 2006 on vinyl, but the CD was released in 2007. Thanks to uggabugga who pretty much single-handedly gave me hope about pop music.


The Bear Quartet - Eternity Now (2006) [FLAC&v0]

Here's something for the pretentiousandlistentobandsfromaforeigncountrirdtoseemobscure hipsterfaggots. Technically I don't fit into this classification of hipsterfaggot as this band is not foreign to me. Swedish indie band goes experimental, disregards a lot what is typically seen as "musical" and manages to get alienated by large parts of their fanbase. It's hilarious, and this is their by far best album. Experimental pop.

I also wrote a review on this ages ago, I'll see if I can dig it up...

Ah, I found it, but nevermind, it was just deranged ramblings.

Mars - The Complete Studio Recordings NYC 1977-1978 (2008, flac & mp3)

Back to posting some no wave. Mars is another one of those no wave bands who never actually properly released anything major, in this case just an EP, and we'd need some compilation later on to actually be able to have something to listen to. Even though we love these studio recordings, most no wave bands considered themselves to be live bands, which is possibly why they never really released much studio material, or maybe it's because the capitalist interest in no wave was ZERO, and I guess it's far too late to experience them in their full live glory. This is as close as we get. From parts similar to that of DNA's noise rock to a more purely post-punk sound and even sometimes as far as some weird soundscapes.

Kazumoto Endo - Brick and Mortar (2003)

So yeah, here I am uploading some Kazumoto Endo. I was talking about him so much in the last post I thought it was the only possible course of action. I haven't seen this around on any blogs so that's why I decided to upload this one which is just an EP. But "While You Were Out" is a fucken great album if you'd like to check it out. Kazumoto's noise is explosive, intense as fuck, destructive, yet in moments somewhat upbeat and cheerful, but in a sick, twisted way.

Shitty 224 kbit/s quality, but I haven't found any better.

VA - Nietzsche's Electronic Music (2001, flac)

Normally I wouldn't post something like this, but Nietzsche makes me look so post-modern and existentialist, fuck yeah. Anything featuring Kazumoto Endo must be worth having too. I thought it was gonna be more noisy though, but this is just tracks of glitch / experimental electronica with only a few noisier parts.

I dislike compilations, I do, some forms of compilations are all right, when it's mostly unreleased material by bands who never really released any albums, like DNA on DNA or a Mars compilation (I will post one later). Worst of all are the "best of" compilations though, it's unbelievable how people buy those.

Anyway this album is from Japan dedicated to Nietszche. Since it's a VA and most of these artists are really obscure, the quality is of course unpredictable, but most of them were at least decent. I was expecting more from the Kazumoto Endo one though.

Flux Information Sciences - Private/Public (2001, FLAC & mp3)


Anyway, if No Wave really was a genre and not restricted to a certain time, I'd definitely call this this a No Wave band. Since this industrial noisy (post-)punk album was released in 2001 it's not, but it certainly gives you that no wave vibe. Cryptic vocals, abrasive outburst, bizzare & schizophrenic soundscapes, while containing a spirit of post-punk.

DNA - A Taste Of DNA (1980) & DNA on DNA (2004)

DNA is one of the best things ever happen to no wave. This particular EP is incredibly short, just about 10 minutes long, this could make it a lot easier to digest for people to typically acquainted with such dissonant music. Sadly this is the only "real" release by the band. The compilation album released in 2004 "DNA on DNA" is great too, and it actually has this EP on it anyway and it lacks this EP's only weakness, the length. So unless you're a wimp who wants some easy listening, just download the compilation album instead.

Instead of playing their instruments in an traditional manner. They set out to make weird sounds and sounding as different as possible.

A taste of DNA

Features the track off No New York and A Taste Of DNA as well as plenty of other good stuff.


Swans - Filth (1983)

Swans' album first album was revolutionary heavy for it's time. At their early years they were called the loudest band on earth. In my opinion this album serves as the best representation of their early aggressive period. It's extremely dirty and sludgy. Sludge fans should hear this out too.

Kill Your Idols (2004, film)

Swans, DNA, Foetus, Suicide, Flux Information Sciences, James Chance and the Contortions, Sonic Youth, Glenn Branca, Liars, Black Dice etc.

A 2004 documentary about the New York music scene. Especially the short-lived No Wave movement which came into life somewhere along the mid 70s and died in the early-mid 80s. With a comparison to the NY music scene of today (or rather 2002). Which leads to many pretentious rants by the old timers, especially by the oh god so awful Lydia Lunch (also in Teenage Jesus and the Jerks). It's fine though, we still have Michael Gira (Swans) and Arto Lindsay (DNA) to save the film.

For those of you interested I will in continuation be posting a series of no wave albums during the next few days.

Infidel?/Castro! - Bioentropic Damage Fractal (2005, FLAC+mp3)

(Bumped for FLAC)

Anyone who is acquainted with me has probably heard me mention this album one time or another, a personal favorite of sorts, and as suggested I'm posting it here. It's a very eclectic album ranging from avant-gardian grindy sound collages over a gnarly drum machine to psychedelic noise to long droning ambient tracks. It's a recommendation I almost give to anyone (unless your taste in music is awful). It's a gloomy, malicious, melancholic, chaotic double-disc opus which - if something - would suit as a soundtrack for the decay of mankind.

NON - Blood & Flame (1987, FLAC & mp3)

Works a lot with repetitive sound manipulation and sometimes take on a more chaotic approach. Some songs feature repeated words as sound source, where the mind would start interpreting them and hearing different words or just plainly interpret them as a rhythm and not hearing words at all.
