MSBR / K2 / Magmax - Split



Some classy live stereotype destroying work from Koji Tano's MSBR, two classic junk metal tracks courtesy of Kimihide Kusafuka and Koji's Magmax project that sounds like the goings on in a techno club run by Whitehouse.

CDr released on MSBR Records in 1999.

MSBR with RoboChanMan - Final Electro Acoustic Work 1




Collaboration between Koji Tano and Yasushi Tahara. When I posted the MSNP Japanoise tape, I said that amongst those artists that I knew nothing about was Moletown Crew ... who were, in part at least, the work of Yasushi Tahara. I should have joined the dots on that one a bit earlier. Ah well ...

Omoide Hatoba - Vuoy

Jump to 1997, "Vuoy" came out on a Japanese major label, Polystar, co-released by Cornelius' Trattoria label. As you might expect, the sound is more more accessible than Hatoba's earlier albums but it's still solid and fun. For fans of Yamamoto's other band, Rovo.

Omoide Hatoba - Suichi-Joe

My favorite Omoide Hatoba album, a truly inexplicable experience that mashes together styles of music that shouldn't be in the same room. Don't try to make sense of it. Just enjoy the ride. Released in 1992 by Alchemy. Your eyes are not lying to you: that is an image of someone with the world's worst belt buckle playing golf on the cover. This album might have been made to intentionally irritate people. I love it.
