Cassette of Japanese noise, compiled by Yutaka Tanaka (aka S*Core) and released by Sound of Pig in 1989. All-around excellent tape with a variety of approaches, including some obscure artists and some heroes of the genre. Solmania's mutant-guitar shred, Merzbow's throw-everything-in-the-air-at-once assault, a typical (and typically brilliant) tape-mangled violin from Agencement, The Hanatarash grumbling frantically from inside a dumpster, moody gloom from Contagious Orgasm, a short strange glorp by S*CoreNihilist Surfin' Group (aka Juntaro Yamanouchi of the Gerogerigegege with his pants on), plus oddities by minimal-output forgotten four-track weirdos Noizrt, Liminal Stimulus, Thug System, and PCCBHS.

Hello Seattle ... it always helps to have a name if you are requesting re-ups :)

I've been thinking about doing a re-up for a while now (but there is so much sitting in wait for the future that it is difficult to find the time to revisit the past). There may be a "now you see it, now you don't" post coming where people can request what is temporarily resurrected. Well maybe ...
