Kalerlak & The Rita - Knifing and Knived

Bleak Bliss - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 01:00
Two cutting-edge artists, Kakerlak and The Rita, unsheath a split cassette on the under(ser)rated Thorax Harsh label, offering sharp observations about their favorite dinner utensil (with a fascinating subtext illustrating the improper conjugation of verbs ending in "-fe" into the indicative past tense form). Each swordsman handles a side, carefully dicing and filleting the other's sounds then re-assembling the slices until they form... you guessed it: harsh static noise! Forgive me if I've foiled up which side is which; the tape is not clearly marked, and the sides sound scimitar to one another. 
(Oh, and if you think I was being a smidgeon persnickety with that little grammar lesson a few lines back, you can go and get knifed.)

Kakerlak & Squamata - Split

Bleak Bliss - Thu, 02/27/2014 - 01:00
More crusty noise on Thorax Harsh Cassettes (THC, get it?? Clever! Not really!), split between a metal-bashing Kakerlak and Finland's Squamata. This dependable product scratches precisely the itch you expect it to.

Robochanman ‎- 燃える天下り帝国

Stupendously fucked up C10 released on Shit-Eye Cassettes in 2005 in and edition of 66.

The reverse of the j-card exhorts us to say "Thanx To Cunts" and who am I to argue?

MSBR ‎– Final Harsh Work #1

Bleak Bliss - Tue, 02/25/2014 - 13:03

You will have already have figured out that this is the first (erm...) Final Harsh Work. This is a C56 released on Yasushi Tahara's Robotomy Tapes in 1996 in an edition of 50. Yasushi Tahara also recorded as RoboChanMan and several other projects that will no doubt remained unheard by us.

The truth (whatever that may be) behind the Final Harsh Works is undoubtedly lost to us since Koji Tano left us. There were seven singular releases that I know about. I have #7, #18 and #22 and have never seen numbers 4 and 5. A lot of the others were parts of other MSBR releases and splits. For instance, number 30 was released as part of Denshi Zatsuon's reworked version of the Structured Suicide tape in 2003. I have the original tape but not the reworked version.

Enjoy it and remember the man responsible for the great things that he gave to us.

MSBR - The Final Harsh Work No. 2

Bleak Bliss - Tue, 02/25/2014 - 07:14

MSBR, the noise alter ego of the late Koji Tano, was never known for being particularly lighthearted. But how else is one to understand the series of tapes released as "the final harsh work"? The mere existence of a #2 makes the title funny (how "final" was the first one?), but Tano eventually made 22 "final harsh works" before that evil bastard cancer took him from the world far too soon.

This tape was released in an edition of 50 numbered copies by the legendary Spite label, and shows a side of MSBR that is not appreciated nearly enough: epic, outer-space synth psychedelia! Harsh? Nah. This music is spacious and warm, expanding outward. If ugliness is what you expect from a noise tape, you will be disappointed. By its conclusion, "Final Harsh Work No.2" is positively soaring!

This is a double CD set jointly released by the venue and 23five as a companion piece for an exhibition held at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art held between September the 22nd and 30th, 2001.

The bad news is this isn't ten hours long. The good news is that this is nearly two and a half hours featuring the likes of Ryoji Ikeda, Pain Jerk, Masahiro Miwa, Otomo Yoshihide, Masonna, Nerve Net Noise, Merzbow, Hanatarash and Astro.

Scorpio & Glass‎ - Shortly Before The Bullshit Started

Bleak Bliss - Sun, 02/23/2014 - 12:41

Scorpio & Glass is the work of Khristopher Reinshagen (aka Body Collector etc). I love his work. Full. Stop.

The title might be appropriate for the shit be gwan on my part of the blog for a while. I'm going to see if I can go cold turkey and not post any "noise" (whatever that term means) for the entire month of April.

C30 released on Annex Scum (which was a sub-label of Nurse Etiquette) in 2011.
