Keiji Haino / Jim O'Rourke / Oren Ambarchi
This Dazzling, Genuine

Startling to note that this is already the eighth release from the free rock supergroup. The trio are masters at wrenching great textural and dynamic variety from the basic power trio format, which here is augmented with some unusual instrumental additions. O’Rourke plays EMS Synthi as well as often heavily-effected bass, Haino sings in English, and besides guitar tackles electronics, flute and toy piano. Ambarchi’s playing runs the gamut from subtle cymbal work to full-on frenzy. A characteristically lovely double LP presentation from Ambarchi’s Black Truffle label, designed by Stephen O’Malley and cut by Rashad Becker.

Konstrukt & Keiji Haino
A Philosophy Warping, Little By Little​ ​That Way Lies A Quagmire (Live)

Turkish free-jazz/avant-garde visionaries Konstrukt have teamed up with Japanese noise master Keiji Haino (from Fushitsusha) to create the perhaps aptly named (who are we to judge?) A Philosophy Warping, Little By Little /​ ​That Way Lies A Quagmire, recorded live last year. And it sure is noisy, free, and avant-gardey.

Keiji Haino
Watashi Dake?

Approximately a thousand albums (and thirty-seven years) ago, Keiji Haino released his debut album, Watashi Dake?. Turns out Haino started as he meant to go on: the album is full of his ferocious vocals and guitar, and makes for a very intense listen. It has become extremely hard to find, especially outside of Japan, so god bless this vinyl reissue, replete with metallic jacket artwork. Remastered reissue on Black Editions.

Konstrukt & Keiji Haino
A Philosophy Warping, Little by Little That Way Lies A Quagmire

Berlin’s Karlrecords previously released of a pair of Haino collaborations with experimental ensemble Zeitkratzer, which placed the Man in Black in musical contexts that stood out as unusual even in his vast and varied discography. The same can be said of this LP with Istanbul’s free jazz outfit Konstrukt. Haino’s career began with the Ayler-worshipping Lost Aaraaff, and while this feels like part of the same lineage, there’s little cosy or familiar in Konstrukt’s eviscerating mix of electronics, percussion and acoustic instruments, even before those hair-raising shrieks are factored in. A haunted transcontinental underworld racket.

Keiji Haino & SUMAC
American Dollar Bill - Keep Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On

Those boys in SUMAC must have been delighted when this opportunity came up: an album with the grand master Keiji Haino! The band, who are already kind of a alt-metal supergroup (members of Isis, Russian Circles and Baptists), coalesced around the ferocity of Haino’s vocals and guitars to create American Dollar Bill - Keep Facing Sideways, You’re Too Hideous To Look At Face On, a lengthy slab of experimental heavy. On Thrill Jockey.

Keiji Haino / John Butcher
Light Never Bright Enough

This record captures the first UK gig by a couple of the underground’s most prolific collaborators, recorded in Cafe OTO in 2016 and presented by their in-house label. Butcher is on saxes and feedback and Haino is credited with “vocals, guitars, etc”, which will do little to prepare you for this otherworldly and ritualistic racket. LP and CD both limited to 500 and with obi strips.

Keiji Haino
天乃川 1973 Live - Milky Way

Dive into the deep history of Keiji Haino: this 1973 recording predates Fushitsusha and his ‘proper’ solo material. 1973 Live - Milky Way is unusually guitar-free, but Haino uses a swirl of other instruments and approaches to whip up a heavy psychedelic storm that is recognisably his own. The 1993 CD edition is extremely rare, so this vinyl reissue on Oren Ambarchi’s Black Truffle imprint is very welcome indeed.

Keiji Haino / Jozef Dumoulin / Teun Verbruggen
The Miracles Of Only One Thing

Keiji Haino just can’t stop pouring music out of himself: on this occasion the sonic flow erupted in the presence of Jozef Dumoulin and Teun Verbruggen, two Belgian musicians on a tour of Japan. The Miracles Of Only One Thing is a strong meeting of minds, with the trio working themselves into some deep and tasty territory. CD / vinyl release on Sub Rosa.

Merzbow, Keiji Haino, Balazs Pandi
An Untroublesome Defencelessness

In the mood to be totally sonically annihilated? Well then boy, do we have the thing for you! Noise pope Merzbow has been working with powerhouse drummer Balazs Pandi for a few years ago, whipping up propulsive noise storms, and the addition of goddamn Keiji Haino really tips things over the edge. Haino’s inhuman wails and gnarly guitar fits right into the mass of raw power that is An Untroublesome Defencelessness.

Keiji Haino & Yoshida Tatsuya
Hauenfiomiume

Hauenfiomiume is an unusual record in the vast Keiji Haino canon, for it features major re-editing and overdubbing of Haino’s performances (something usually considered verboten). Don’t worry though, the editing was done by Tatsuya Yoshida (of Ruins), who also contributed percussion, keys and voice to the sessions. Numerous short tracks that go off in a tantalising variety of directions. On Magaibutsu.
