are you kidding?
wolf eyes have released over 400 tapes, cds and records over a period of ten years (not including side projects). merzbow's discography stretches into the 100s as well. there are many many more projects/artists and groups which have similar looking discogs.

there are too many to list. ones that spring to mind include art blakely, ornette coleman, sun ra, john zorn, evan parker, derek bailey..... all of these artists can be said to have released (solo or collaboratory) over 100 records... there are hundreds and hundreds more however.

I'm not sure if Wolf Eyes actually have four hundred releases (I'm thinking 200), and I'm more willing to bet Merzbow actually has well over 400 releases..

though an interesting point was raised with Wolf Eyes.. I've long said that for a noise group to get popular, they just need to release a lot of shit on a variety of labels.. that always seems to work.. because certainly, lots of that Wolf Eyes shit isn't very good.. (though there's a good chunk of it that is good)

Anywho, Sunn O))), Boris and Throbbing Gristle both have a wide variety of actual releases (TG has a 24 CD box set afterall and both Sunn and Boris have a ridiculous amount of live albums and collaborations and such; they seem to release about 3 or 4 albums a year). The Ventures, the Fall, Sun Ra, Miles Davis, John Cage, The Residents, Steven Reich, and Frank Zappa also stand out in my mind as having large discographies.

Though, yeah, the winner has got to be Merzbow...

wolf eyes releases a ton of CRAP. their shit does not count. Any fool can replicate most of their output.

If you hang out making noise, recording everything, and releasing everything, as far as I am concerned you are wilfully releasing SHIT.


as far as rock bands go, there have been many mentioned that exceed the sonic youth.

most bands that last over 20 years are gonna have a large discography.

sonic youth rule all.

yeah, wolf eyes have released some good stuff, i've heard about 100 releases by them...

most of it is complete and utter garbage... even their hardcore fans will admit that..

i got this one thing by them, "helloween holocausts", and i'm pretty sure it's 2 90 minute tapes long (with both sides of the tape filled) (so it fits comfortably on 3 cd-r's) .. and all it is them playing halloween "sppooky soundzzzz" cd's with feedback in the background.

just embarassing.

the reason sonic youth seem to have a large discography is because most of their contemporaries only managed to release 3 or 4 albums before breaking up and sonic youth kept going strong.

they have an average number of releases considering their career.

another thing is that, unlike many mainstream-ish bands, fans of the band are much more aware of their side projects, making it seem like the band themselves release more albums then they actually do.
