Japanoise Appreciation Thread
 
Nobody does it better.

Merzbow, Boris, Gerogerigegege, Corrupted, CCCC....just for starters.

It's pure and clean, innit?

Discuss.

I tried listening to Merzbow. It was shit. I love Boris though but.. they're rock music? Are those other three more similar to Boris or Merzbow?

IMHO, the 5 that I listed are all unique and quite different from one another. Perhaps we shall investigate/discuss this much further.

Boris...yeah....maybe "noise rock" or "superdoooooom"....I dunno.....labels labels labels. Absolutego, imho, is one of the all time greatest recordings ever made.

PS: I love Merz. We must agree to disagree on "it was shit".

Hmmmmm I'll check out all three of them then. I like Absolutego, it's nice to sleep to haha

I have a 4cd CCCC box. Oh how I adore it. Gerog and Corrupted are definitely mysterious. Some of their work is very quiet / ambient / found / natural / field noise....but Noise all the same. Noise need not always be "intense".

Oh God...kill me now....I did not mention Incapacitants, Hijokaidan, Acid Mothers, Hanatarash, Fushitsusha.....5 others whom I adore.....and again, all unique.

Skuj 05.23.2009 12:47 AM

Absolutego makes me think of a Diplodocus stuck in a tar pit. Cavemen come and throw spears at it. It dies. Eventually.

i love cccc.
it'll be nice to mention pain jerk and his so dynamic noise.
gomikawa fumio consisting the members from incapasitants and pain jerk.
junko herself - a challange with her screams.

Hanatarash.

This thread has gone on too long without mentioning my very favourite Japanoise king, Keiji Haino! For shame!


 


It's difficult to mention a specific release by him, because he's possibly the most eclectic musician ever. Plays like 40 fucking instruments. That said, my constantly hyped favourite is Affection:


 


Although only turns into noise rock by any stretch of the term at about 20 minutes in, having been quite and haunting up until then. Keeps switiching between the two extremes. But he's got some of the best "proper" noise stuff out there too. The Merzbow collaboration is actually pretty great...

Hence this thread.

Yeah, Keiji Haino (sp?) is God. I have a couple of his lengthy meditations.

Aube, anyone?

I do adore Acid Mothers. Their prolificness must not be equated with garbage. I love the attitude and energy. I want to hang out with them. Always.

Glice 05.23.2009 11:24 AM

I've really gone off noise the last few years, but I used to be quite heavily into it when I was a teenager. When I was into it, I found Aube quite insipid. Every now and then I get the urge to listen to Frequency LSD, but I don't really care for noise these days. I'm not saying the genre's bad, it's just not for me right now. I will say though, the Japs do do it better than the Yanks (and definitely better than the Brits).

I quite like that noise is quickly becoming a global enterprise - there's noise coming from China, Africa, Russia, most of Europe, South America, Australasia. That's not to say that it's all good, but it's nice that it's not another Anglo-American dominated thing (maybe it was always thus?)
