Rovo & Date Course Pentagon Royal Garden - Split

Two Japanese jazz/improv supergroups on one disc! The earliest recorded appearance of Naruyoshi Kikuchi's big band, Date Course Pentagon Royal Garden, was a split CD shared with Seiichi Yamamoto's trance-rock monster, Rovo. I'll give you a moment to Google those names, then come back here when you're ready for more.

DJ Chaos X - Untitled




Crazed DJ set juxtaposing random genres and coating them with EyE's unmistakable yammer that was given away at Boredoms gigs in 2001.

C50 released on Grind Sports Satan Arbeit in 2001.

Noise Ramones - Rocket To DNA




Eye·Ramone (Yamatsuka Eye) and P-P·Ramone (Yokota Yoshimi) taking a break from Boredoms to bamboozle the world. One 22 minute track plus four short remixes from DJ Smallcock. Whilst I'm here, I've never heard the 12" split with OOIOO so if somebody can help out with that omission ...

Short CD released on dualpLOVER 2000.

Otomo Yoshihide & Yamatsuka Eye - Untitled




Recorded live in London, 1995. Fundamentally, it's more DJ Carhouse & MC Hellshit ...

7" that came with the "Special Japanese Issue!" of Resonance magazine (Volume 4, number 2) in 1996.

DJ Carhouse & MC Hellshit - Live!




DJ Carhouse & MC Hellshit were an unfortunately short-lived collaboration between Otomo Yoshihide and Yamatsuka Eye. Brutal, brilliant, stylish and hilarious. Seriously, sandwiching Money Mark into the middle of Kick 'o' Man and dropping dub beats ... and ... well, it's just genius.

3" CD released on Blast First in 1996.

Destroy 2 - We Are Voice & Rhythm Only




The ultimate "short-lived band".

Chu Hasegawa on drums (who at various times has been in Children Coup d'Etat, Corrupted, Omoide Hatoba, and Boredoms) and Yamatsuka Tetsurō (yeah, Yamatsuka Eye, EYƎ and a thousand variations and the man at the centre of Hanatarash and Boredoms and all of the rest).

Recorded live in Osaka in February 1995. 48 tracks in 10 minutes but with more to say than will be achieved in U2's nauseating career.

A perfect antidote to the saccharine bullshit that pervades this time of year.

3" CD released on Japan Overseas in 1996.
