Good ol' Merzbow. You know where you are with a spot of the 'Bow. I knew as soon as the needle hit this white vinyl Japanese pressing of this split LP with Cris X (you see what I did there?) that I'd be in for 17 minutes of brutal power electronics, punishing my ears for all the evils they've committed over the years (and they've been bad...). Without seeming smug I was right as well. This is harsh disturbed noise as you'd expect from Mr Bow. If you're a fan then I can't see any reason at all why you wouldn't like this. If you're not a fan then I can't see any reason at all why you'd like this. There is a cool picture of him inside the sleeve though...he looks super cool in fact! The flipside is 3 tracks from Cris X who I know cock all about but they make a doomy dark ambient racket which is entertaining and remarkably soothing after 17 minutes of Merzbow. I'm not mad keen on this record if I'm honest but I'm giving it 3 stars 'cause it's entertaining and they bothered to make it which has to be taken into account.
