Merzbow
Kakapo

Despite the fact that Masami Akita’s discography would take you a full lifetime to imbibe, slabs of Merzbow wax don’t actually come around that often. It’s been a wee while since his last solo outing on vinyl, so this is an occasion if you like your Merzbow fix vi...view item »

Alessandro Cortini & Masami Akita
Untitled

Masami Akita (King Merzbow himself) and Alessandro Cortini (of Nine Inch Nails) both own an EMS Synthi, and this Untitled release finds them each using the EMS exclusively to produce four sides of seething noisy electronics. The vintage analogue equipment is totally exp...view item »

Merzbow
Wildwood II

Merzbow follows up last year’s Wildwood CD with an LP of new and complementary material. Again, the proceeds go to the Wildwood trust in Kent, meaning that the king of Japanese harsh noise is directly involved in goings on in the heart of English conservatism. Nice. Fierce textures as ever from Mr. Masami...view item »

Merzbow
Escape Mask

A somewhat different side to notorious noise-lord Merzbow on this here reissued release. Escape Mask, originally circulated as a cassette in 1983, still isn’t Top 40 material, but samples, drum patterns and vocals all add up to something approaching songs! Escape Mask is Merzbow in indust...view item »

Merzbow & Balázs Pándi
Live At FAC251

Live At FAC251 is just what it claims to be: a document of the recent live performance there by mighty Merzbow himself, playing with regular recent partner in crime Balászs Pándi, whose fierce blast-beats give the massive noise-sheets a real sense of drive. Edition of 500 CDs in a straight...view item »

Merzbow
Remblandt Assemblage

Remblandt Assemblage, the ridiculously rare 1981 cassette from undisputed icon of harsh noise Merzbow, arrives on 140 gram black double vinyl for the first time ever. This incredible early recording combines found sounds, tape manipulation, bleak drones and, of course, dense pulsing waves of noise. It’s al...view item »

Sun Ra | Merzbow
Strange City

Avant-garde music lovers from all over the spectrum will raise their eyebrows at this record: Merzbow and Sun Ra are two of the most prolific sound-weirdos out there, but this is the first time their paths have crossed. Of course, Sun Ra returned to Saturn decades ago, but Masami Akita...view item »

Masami Akita & Eiko Ishibashi
Kouen Kyoudai 公園兄弟

New collaboration between drummer / pianist / synth-operator Eiko Ishibashi and noise / Noise / NOISE man Masami Akita, aka Merzbow. Kouen Kyoudai 公園兄弟 is an overwhelming blast, needless to say, but it’s always interesting to hear Masami next to ‘rea...view item »

Masami Akita & Russell Haswell
Satansornade

Masami Akita and Russell Haswell make lots of horrible noise over a CD/LP on Warp . These is really, really harsh like getting your teeth pulled whilst someone rams screwdrivers into your skull.. Will appeal to fans of Merzbow and terrifying industrial noise. Satansornade is well e...view item »
