Russell Haswell lives the nightmare of Japanese noise…
+ cover mounted 3″ Compact Disc. Compiled by Russell Haswell.
Masonna: Ejaculation Generater (Remix & Edit Version)
MC Hellshit & DJ Carhouse: ?
Merzbow: Emission

…I just scared myself out my own skin by having the volume way too loud for the opener of this 3″ CD, a truly terrifying Masonna aural assault. Also here are Merzbow and yet another track from the Manchester performance of Otomo and Eye as MC Hellshit and DJ Carhouse (some already out as BFFP 126CD and a Resonance single.) Masonna’s cut is ‘Ejaculation Generater 2 (remix and edit version)’ and his violent shock attack makes Merzbow seem approachable; Masonna plays for keeps, he’s after your blood and the very marrow of your being. Don’t let him into your life! Frieze is a fine arts magazine based in Denmark Street, so lavishly produced you can’t really tell the articles from the adverts. That hard-working Blast First paragon of virtue and Disobey co-host Russell Haswell compiled a brief survey of the ‘Japanese Noise’ scene, secured some very colourful photos and sleeve art reproes, and managed to get this CD secured to the cover with cow gum. He situates the noise explosion within certain perameters, which effectively means the usual suspects from the history of recorded noise are rounded up. The appeal of noise, reckons Haswell, is due to ‘a fascination with the exotic and the unexperienceable’. Edwin Pouncey bought his copy at a certain art bookshop in London; the proprietor (who knew about fine art but Jap Noise was a bit out of his line) warned him, ‘Don’t bother playing that free CD…it’s rubbish! ” ED PINSENT
