Yeah. Very much so. His Lovers With Cloisonne Bracelet LP blows my mind every time I hear it. Same goes for the CD on Archive.

Not so wild about the PSF CD though.

Red Venice Records also released a record by him recently, it is a collaboration with Ana Venus, called "Bleeding Universe", which can be purchased through bandcamp, in digital format or CD-R:

Classic of the Mountains and Seas? That's his best one, as far as I'm concerned... but the one on Archive is great too.

I wasn't that impressed with the split with Ana Venus... but I have yet to hear 1969.

The VagusNerve album on Utech (forgot what it's called) is also worth checking out.

New VagusNerve!

VAGUSNERVE Go Back To The Sirius (Utech)
Oooh. Nice one, this. If you dig psychedelic dronemusic, heavy on the guitar, that is, 'cause it's the 2nd album on the ever-reliable Utech label from this droney duo from China, one half of which is none other than freeform electric guitarist & sculptor-of-feedback Li Jianhong, whose solo album on Japanese psych label PSF, Classic Of the Mountains And Seas, we made a Record Of The Week a few years back. The other half of the band is laptopper Vavabond, and together they create a dark and disturbing, yet sometimes somewhat soothing symphony of cosmic sci-fi space drone (VagusNerve are kind of big into UFOs and flying saucers), full of strange sounds. Layers of Jianhong's whale call guitar and swarms of other unidentifiable electronic drones (from keening high end to bassy lows) are ofttimes joined by weird wordless vocals, druggy mumbles, the guttural moans of some human creature. This devolved baby-babble is however buried beneath the burbling electronic FX and quasi-melodic guitar wail. What sound like distant air raid sirens rise and fall, as abstract alien transmissions from across the galaxy shower down over the three loooong tracks here, "The Memory Of Light", "The Exiled Life", and "Go Back To The Sirius" - as in, this is sirius tripping balls music!! To be played LOUD, if you dare. These aren't airy ambient drones. It's all quite dense and physical and maybe even frightening, with Jianhong's amp burning blackest on that third track, at times coming close to Keiji Haino in an echoing realm of insane video game zips and zaps.
