- One Bird Two Bird by Akita / Gustafsson / O'Rourke
Three unique and uncompromising artists join collective forces right here for journey beyond hell and associated dimensions. There is no indication of which equipment was battered to create this ride but seasoned listeners of the respective artists will be able to speculate on each players role. The title would suggest that Masami Akita (Merzbow) is at the controls in terms of concept but really it is a most mysterious release. Gustafsson's blowing has clarity and doesn't become lost in the mix of the sustained, noisy drones and alien electronics which fully complement his powerful nightmarish, seizure-inducing playing. The overall effect is like a big fuckin' Borbetomagus/Braxton/Wolf Eyes session with Satan. Things become increasingly distressed, dissonant, oppressive and detached sounding, yet are thoroughly addictive. At the appropriate moments Mats is really given a lot of space with Jimmy and Masami working around him, adding layers of fucked up bad-trip energy. A stonking free-jazz noise mutant hybrid with sleeve artwork by Merzbow himself in an edition of 500 copies.
