Nord - Electronic Initiation

Nord had already been dormant for a number of years, at least since 1993, when Kimihide Kusafuka/K2 put out this comeback (?) album on his Kinky Music Institute label in 1999. The cover art gets right to the point: this is psychedelic noise, and the line from those old Nord record to Astro & CCCC is clear.

I can't understand why Nord are so obscure, either! They recorded THREE collaborative albums with Merzbow and even have a tape on the legendary VANILLA label, and I've never seen or heard any of it. You'd think some Japanese noise fan would have unearthed that stuff by now, but apparently not.
