Hijokaidan x You'll Melt More! - Watashi o Noise ni Tsuretette

From one end of the Hijo collaboration spectrum to the other ...

CD released as part of the (always revelatory) Alchemy Records Special Edition Series in 2015.

Because the original is such a great tribute to Neu!, and because I'll take any excuse to practice my Japanese, here's a translation of the song in the video posted above, in case anyone should by chance want one: https://pastebin.com/b5NQg1TY

I love these weird Hijokaidan collabs, thanks!

Well Bill.

That is entirely the kind of both barrel in the face nerd facts that we demand of the people who wander by here. Most mere mortals can't be arsed.

We bend at the knee and salute you!

BisKaidan albums were pretty much the only thing from them I disliked tbf, as it sounded like generic noise and equally generic pop music blended together sloppily. The idea is nice but I think there are already tons of acts, Japanese or of elsewhere, who have successfully blended these two or more to amazing results. Hoping this collab's better :)
Hijokaidan spin-offs are generally great though- the jazz and post-rock/shoegaze projects I liked quite a lot.
