If discussion emerges, I may split to different topic, but:
This is something I am very curious of. There are handful of tour reports or interviews covering western noise artists playing in Japan ... but how it is nowadays? Of course not meaning right now, but before virus. How is the gig culture? How is the underground culture? Been in Japan few times, from 2005 onwards, but last visit was almost 10 years ago. You could gradually see that less specialist UG shops, venues. Less unusual stuff in record stores, book shops etc. Every time visiting, formerly existing things closing down meanwhile... Still there is something in Japan that makes me want to travel (to even play). Most western countries barely have the lure, when its just the same as going to Helsinki or something, hah...

Have not read any reports of how it is like to play there now? Anyone played there in recent years? Now got to listen CCCC live recordings and Mason Jones in Japan and have perhaps unrealistic visions of how it must have been pre-internet vivid physical underground... I hope some podcast would cover mr. Jones adventures in same enthusiasm as he did on his own magazine. Recap the seemingly good times!

Thanks for the mention, and it's an interesting question. I haven't been able to get to Japan to play shows in a few years, so I am very overdue to visit again. The last few times I've gone it's still been similar to the past, but it seems as though there are fewer live houses and fewer people to contact who can help organize shows. Some of the great artists are still doing it (Astro, etc) but it's not as active as it was.

There's an upcoming Noisextra podcast that includes me talking about some of the early tours there! It was extremely active back then but of course still the audiences were never very large...although they were all very interested and enjoyable.
Looking forward to hearing that!  I remember highly enjoying reading your tour diaries in Ongaku Otaku.

KRANIVM - The Brighter Edge Of Death

Such a classic. Dark ambient at it's height of oppression and uneasy atmospheres, mixed with the twisted and brilliant sounds only Marco could conjure.  The album does all the talking.

haven't found a post about this yet...
this is a "pro-CDR", looks like a regular cd pretty much.
came out on Love Earth Music, Steve +DOG+'s label.
damn good harsh stuff, even has a P.E. track to mix things up. very "high frequency" noise if that makes sense. if you like early Whitehouse and also like stuff like Stimbox and Xome, I definitely recommend this.

Anyone going to have a crack at the Khaki version of the full size remake of the MS20? Very tempting. It's up for pre order.

I have been really interested in this project recently for his apparent thematic purity and because he creates his own instruments (it would be really cool to hear about these in more detail).  I have liked much of what I have heard by him, and would be really interested in learning more.

Also, the Maskhead Discogs page leads me to think that the project has performed live?

What releases are your favorites?
