«The History Of Japanese Bondage Photography Volume 1».

Masami Akita aka noise musician Merzbow is for the uninitiated also a bondage fanatic and long time collector of rare SM books and magazines. «The History Of Japanese Bondage Photography» is a comprehensive book regarding the history of kinbaku that has been developed with legends kinbakushi Chimuo Nureki and photographer Akio Fuji in advisor capacity. Even today, the title at hand remain one of the most in-depth encyclopedias about SM - its practitioners and models, magazines, photography and art. Akita, who regard Nureki as his teacher, charts the timeline from post-war Tokyo and influential master artist Itoh Seiu’s torture shibari through Toshiyuki Suma aka Minomura Kou’s rich career in Kitan Club, S&M Collector — and well into the 1990s and Chimuo Nureki’s contemporary evolved kinbaku to magazine editorial work with Kommunication.

This luxurious 324 page SM tome, published in 1996, is a beautiful photo book and visual library that contain over 300 black and white original images, now scanned to high resolution. The visual material is mostly supplied by company Office Fuji Kikaku and Chimuo Nureki, and stems from private collections and the vast photography archive of key SM magazine Uramado - which both Toshiyuki Suma and Nureki edited. Uramado was active from 1956 to 1965. Suma was after Kitan Club engaged as co-editor and later editor in chief between 1956-1961; while Chimuo was editor in chief 1962-1965. In addition to desk work for Uramado, Suma was also the house kinbakushi - an assignment he continued with until the magazine seized operations. Many of the photographs in this book are previously unpublished, while a handful of others may be recognizable to some from Kommunication and Uramado. However, the latter magazine selections appear in seemingly full unedited size compared to the images seen in the 1960s print. The book also include a large and important section of bondage photography from the godfather of Japanese kinbaku: Itoh Seiu. The texts and commentary are written by Masami Akita, who channel insights and anecdotes from our two advisors SM-careers that dates back to the early 1950s. A selection of images from «The History Of Japanese Bondage Photography» are featured in the Merzbow documentary film: «Beyond Ultra Violence - Uneasy Listening By Merzbow» (1998).

Masami Akita and Chimuo Nureki have also collaborated on the 1990s SM-harakiri film series «Kinbaku» - and titles such as «Kinbiken» and «Shitsuraku-en».

Caligula031 - Veneralia C30 (Lake Shark Harsh Noise)
Another excellent addition to the Caligula031 discography....side A (Veneralia) is more of a pure textural harsh piece, very little dynamics but a thickness to the sound that is quite satisfying. Side B (Messalina) brings in nasty vocals...obvious comparison may be some of Marco Corbelli's raspier, sickened vocals (maybe I'm just listening to the recent 195 Melrose reissue too much...) and some rhythmic qualities, particularly towards the end as a loop is introduced, adding a nice mechanical rhythm to the track. Bleak and grinding PE built with restraint. Very good! Excellent layout and packaging via LSHN too.

Nathaniel Matthews - Satanicum Tenebrae - Til Helvete Remix (self released)
A bit of a novelty, but an enjoyable listen! Matthews takes the original Til Helvete tape, puts it in a 2 track, and adds a layer of 909 drums over it...and it works (mostly). There's a few moments where it almost loses the thread, but otherwise it's an enjoyable and realized experiment. Imagine an alternate reality where LLN take a sharp turn into necro acid house.

Zac Davis - The Land of Sinking Sand C62 (The Gift of Music)
Peculiar, damaged noise. Parts remind me of Hunting Lodge, or the 1993 EP by Crawl Unit; clipped vocals samples, bubbling electronics, samples drum breaks. Droney and throbbing sounds merge with early industrial clangor for a very well constructed release above and outside of what's hot "in the scene" right now - there's a real sense of meticulous construction beneath the sounds that is really engaging. I'll admit I'm not very familiar with Zac Davis' prior material, but this has made me interested in digging through some past releases. The packaging is quite nice on this one too..while I thought the aluminum foil wrap was a bit chintzy, it actually won me over given how weirdly thorough the wrap-job was hah. Once you get through that there's a few inserts and prints that really take full advantage of the j card format.

Heydrich - ASP Disorder (Nil by Mouth)
This project is crazy good. Weird that nobody is talking about it... heavy crunches, great texture, bit of chaotic 90ies HN approach mixed with some virtues ala the Rita. A bit hard to describe. Hoping for new material soon.

Yeah, it was pretty decent. I got both the NBM version, and the band self released (with simple cover). First I didn't notice it was the same tape, so just concluded that pretty solid style of simple damaged and ripping electronic noise. There is room for improvement, but also good to hear this type of brutalism instead of synth heavy electronics.

Rope Society and Am Not present two cuts of harsh electronic punishment dedicated to men marked for death by Moscow’s diarchy.

Men who looted a collapsed empire or chose the wrong side in the race to power. Foreign plunderers, traitors and fallen sultans scurrying away only to be  sentenced in absentia, condemned to live out their last years always looking over their shoulder.

This hunt will end only when its prey is left impaled on Marylebone railings, swinging from a chandelier, burned from within or despatched by bullets.

As the world shrinks, time is ever shorter for these fugitives and a final, violent reckoning is never far behind.

152 pressed, all black vinyl; with foldover cover sleeve in clear plastic slip case.

My project, Decrepitude, has just had a compilation album of two short demos and a few stand-alone tracks released by Corpse Infection Productions.  These tracks represent my past attempts to create dark ambient music, as well as my first forays into power electronics.


As always, I appreciate any feedback or comments!
