Forced Orgasm - Are You Home Yet? (1994-2008)

Forced Orgasm are apparently Hageshiseto Ohno and Naoki Chisato who were originally based in Kobe but moved to the US and appear to have fitted straight into the Texan harsh noise scene. The vast majority of their work was impossible to find. That is until Richard Ramirez started to reissue some of their tapes as CDrs in tiny numbers and it remained only slightly less impossible to find.

Or was Forced Orgasm always RR in the first place? It's the kind of textured occasionally crumbling wall noise I associate with a lot of his projects ... only somebody else knows ...

Whatever the truth is, this is a (purportedly) retrospective seven CDr edition released on Room 2A (one of Richard Ramirez's many Deadline Recordings sub-labels) in 2014 and it came in an edition of ten.

I love the mystery!! I wish I was as plugged in as you, so I could reasonably draw my own conclusions.... (otherwise I'm no better than those antivaxxers...)

Finding these to be more TV-static wall than Harsh Noise Wall, very sensuous textures nevertheless. watching movies with sound off when you are the last life in the universe. No one is home yet.

I dozed off to the second disc this afternoon and and it had layed out a profoundly surreal backdrop to my subconsciousness during (and after) the slumber. I felt disoriented in a way when I woke up, thinking: "what am I doing here? I belong to my dreamscape."
God bless Bleak Bliss!!!

now that I am close to finishing it, I can safely say that this is one of my absolute best listening experiences of the year, along with Characteristic Caramel Interior, AM5:00+ etc.
Can't thank you enough.
