Zeni Geva - Maximum Love + Fuck




This is the same line up as the previous post. I'm fairly sure that these are the same versions of the songs that appeared on the Maximum Money Monster CD the following year but in a different track order. However, there is a much more raw feel to the vinyl that makes this a different listen entirely.

LP released on Nux Organization in 1989.

Kazuyuki K.Null with Fred Frith, Guy Lohnes, Ichiro Agata, Jim O'Rourke - Guitar Organism




Six collaborations with Kazuyuki Kishino. The track with Fred Frith is the one that appears on the earlier tape but there is an 18 minute meeting with Jim O'Rourke, one with Guy Lohnes (who I know nothing about) and three appropriately frenetic ventures with Ichiro Agata (guitarist with the impeccable Melt-Banana).

CD released on Nux Organization in 1996.

Side A is (a perhaps unlikely) collaboration recorded live at a gig in Tokyo in 1990 and the reverse is a solo composition from Kazuyuki Kishino recorded live in his own studio in the same year.

C56 released on Nux Organization in 1991.

Various - Hard Drugs




You have to fear for the meat in the sandwich on this one. You get two short tracks from Koma Storatos (?) and Controlled Bleeding surrounded by long-form pieces by Null, Incapacitants and Fumiyoshi Suzuki's N.P.

Tibeta Ubik - 2




Tibeta Ubik was an apparently short-lived example of the early collaborations between Kazuyuki Kishino and Masami Akita during the early Eighties.

At such a distance, the history of Japanese tapes is opaque to say the very least ... this is the second of their tapes and I'm not aware of any others surfacing (and I've been searching for at least a decade).

C60 released on ZSF Produkt in 1983.
