Nefarious Activities

«Issue # 2».


This number contain Interviews with:

Terror Cell Unit
Bacillus
Subklinik
- And a special feature with collage artwork by Paul Kerin of NYC label Fieldwork.


Nefarious Activities dives deep into the zeitgeist and mind of the enigmatic cultural terrorists — Terror Cell Unit — who with explicit insight discuss their unique reformative ideas and approach to contemporary urban militaristic music.
    Bacillus first public interview since 1993. The band map out its origin story, talks hands-on strategies re noise music-making before transcending to its engaged connection with biology, minute life and the pathogens that cause disease, pandemics - and god hope: Civilization collapse. A truly inspiring position and convoluted artist statement.  
    First Subklinik interview from this frontier moniker. Subklinik and Nefarious Activities charts a map of the band’s birth and artistic progression - and via the Marco Corbelli slash Slaughter Productions years - the exchange unveil an until now esoteric fresco that is Subklinik’s singular vision, legacy and way forward.

Too Negative No. 5 May 1995.

Image censored for web purposes. Click link to stream the book in full: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wu3ykVSasqw



Too Negative, published by Tom Shobo 1994 - 2000, is a Japanese cult subculture photo magazine edited by legend publisher and gallery owner Kotaro Kobayashi.

The magazine’s format was an admixture of classic archival and curiosity magazine grafted with mondo, frontier contemporary art and fetishism - all wrapped in glossy vibrant fashion esthetics. Too Negative’s origin may be found in the concepts of ‘Eros’ and ‘Thanatos’ - a lineage it share with previous controversial prints such as: The Japanese 1920s erotic grotesque magazine Hentai Shiriou (Pervert Documents), Shibusawa Tasuhiko’s 1960s avant-garde journal Le Sang Et La Rose, to Fiction Inc’s Sale2 published from 1980 into the mid-’90s. But where Le Sang Et La Rose and Sale2 today may be described as subtle, clandestine or refined in intent; Too Negative was a visceral and visually explosive front that reflected the gory-depraved-beyond salvation-bad taste expressions visible in international subculture as well as the new evolving markets in contemporary art and home entertainment. Too Negative was solely curated by Kobayashi. The editoial consisted of themes such as: Medical/autopsy, grotesque and contemporary art, Japanese bondage - kinbaku, death journalism, erotica, war, crime scene photography, tattooing and the bizarro realm. Frequent collaborators and featured artist were: Trevor Brown, Kiyoshi Ikejiri, Kiyotaka Tsurisaki, Joel-Peter Witkin and Hiroshi Yokoi to site a few.

This issue features: ‘Crime museum’ by Chokudo Shibuya, photographer Kiyoshi Ikejiri, bizare humilation xxx, photographer Kiyotaka Tsurisaki death photograhy, artist Trevor Brown, medical and autopsy photography, artist Taga-Shin, piercing and body modifications, tattooing and much more.

Toshio Saeki

«Works».




Two copies available via WFR now - one with slipcase (left), one without - book only (right).

Stream browse video of the title in the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruAvOLdKEag&t=67s

Master artist Toshio Saeki (1945 - 2019) was born in South-east Japan, Miyazaki prefecture. At age four the family relocated to Osaka, where he graduated from college and started his illustration career in advertising. In 1969, Saeki moved to Tokyo with hopes of having his works published. Living and working in his studio, he continued to developed the now signature art fundamented on Japan’s wealthy traditions in ukiyo-e, shunga, ero-guro and folklore. Within the first year in the metropolis he self-published a 16 piece black & white print series «Collection of drawings by Toshio Saeki». Saeki also had one of his illustrations printed on the front cover of now cult journal series Black Magazine. After proposing his works to several publishing companies without luck, new talent magazine Heibon Punch published in 1970 a selection of his works. The art-feature was well received and brought attention from the public, media and culture personalities such as: Shûji Terayama, Maki Asakawa to Tatsuhiko Shibusawa of Le Sang Et La Rose. The sum of the experience enabled him to become a professional artist. His first artist book of identical title as the aforementioned self-publication was issued in 1970. The offer at hand - «Works» - was published in 1971, while the equal important artist monograph «Red Box» came in ’72. In addition to publishing several artist books and exhibiting internationally, Toshio Saeki was from 1970 a contributing illustrator for several counter-culture and adult magazines. Think: Erotica, Black Magazine, SM Select to S&M Sniper. Until he passed away in 2019 Toshio resided outside Tokyo in the mountains of Chiba prefecture.  

Toshio Saeki’s surgically precise drawings and prints showcase a distinct and unprecedented visual language. His late 1960s and early ’70s works often display monochrome and color representations with compositional shapes crossing over to abstractions. After settling in Tokyo, he quickly appropriated a color palette and artistic method that echoed Japan’s neon pop culture explosion and rich traditions in woodblock printmaking. In its core, Saeki’s artistic practice is deeply rooted in a multilevel suspension between Japan’s cultural and political heritage to the country’s rapid at-all-cost race into the contemporary as a leading economic and technological power. When we look at his coded dream-logic scenery, we see a collective subconscious that reminisce over its historical and psychological debris - in essence: The cycle of nature - life, death, conception - precise and elegant condensed into an ultimate distilled experience. Saeki always resisted the Western interpretation of his oeuvre as only being linked with concepts eros and erotica. These elements are certainly present, but the artist’s position is exceedingly complex and relates maybe more to Georges Bataille’s understanding of the subject matter as presented in his book «Erotism: Death and Sensuality» (1957). Writer and director Shūji Terayama formulated in 1969 his friend’s universe as a stab: «Toshio Saeki conjures death with a pen». In a later interview when discussing his work Toshio Saeki expressed: «Ero is the recipient of the life of the man. Through it, death is profiled. When I adapt myself to this ero, by making it the topic of my drawings, I feel neither constrained, nor hesitant».

Ultra Negative «No. 1 Vol. 2: Popular Edition».

ULTRA NEGATIVE is today an iconic myth-clouded Japanese print of the late 1990’s era made by the editor of TOO NEGATIVE - Kotaro Kobayashi - a somewhat infamous underground figure in Japan for his generation-spanning involvement in sub- and erotica culture; who also gained recognition as a frontier editor, publisher, graphic designer and founder of cult Tokyo underground initiatives NG Publication 1994 and NG Gallery 1995.

Ultra Negative and other Kotaro-undersigned projects between 1995 and June 22nd 1997 have to be understood in context with NG Gallery - a Tokyo-based studio and exhibition space organized and cultivated by Kobayashi, Jun Aoto and Tanaka Tomonori that also housed his small press publishing company NG Publication. Main functionality was as office and studio space for various art and publication projects in development, but it also facilitated as temporary workshop for affiliated cadre such as Tsurizaki Kiyotaka. Aside from being a place of work, the maybe main impact of total NG was the dissemination of ideas and subculture with global audience reach through printed matter, exhibitions, concerts, literature readings and a mail-order. As an extension of these activities, the initiative also de facto brought recognition and assisted in enabling the careers of artists such as: Kiyoshi Ikejiri, Wes Benscoter, Tsurizaki Kiyotaka and Trevor Brown.

After working several years in professional publishing houses in Tokyo and NYC, establishing NG Publication and NG Gallery were in many ways Kobayashi’s return to the subculture gutter. But it was also an integral solution to take creative control of own projects sans external interference and a reaction against increasingly strict Japanese censorship laws. The latter intrusion made Kobayashi realize that if his new-found expansive drive was left alone, the 1990s would wither up and become a reduced reproduction of the previous pink 1980s decade. NG Publication, NG Gallery, Too Negative and Ultra Negative should in this regard be understood as an adjoined independent platform for subjective resistance and subversive political activity that seeks to materialize professional agency, action and disperse credo ideology between like-minded fanatics in Japan to abroad. The 1990s is in Japan today referred to as ‘the lost decade’. It was a period marked by struggle and deep economic recession due to the collapse of the country’s inflated and credit-run 1980s economy. Kotaro’s new strategy may in this regard in parts have been a way to remain active during a difficult period. With the stagnation in consumer spending and a publishing market in decline Kobayashi had incentive to seek new ventures. But instead of commercially responding to where the consumer market was stable, he now sought voluntary isolation and marginalization away from the entertaining popular culture and official eye. During this time, Kobayashi shifted his attention towards a devoted niche audience and developed several passion projects in the realm of art and subculture which tastes and morals ran in stark opposition to the established. This strategy was in tandem with Kobayashi’s thoughts regarding subjective resistance.

Ultra Negative is an amplified continuation of where his glossy fashion aesthetic photo magazine Too Negative left off. Both prints origin may be found in the concepts of ‘Eros’ and ‘Thanatos’ - a lineage they share with previous controversial publications such as: The Japanese 1920s erotic grotesque magazine Hentai Shiriou (Pervert Documents), Shibusawa Tasuhiko’s 1960s avant-garde journal Le Sang Et La Rose to Fiction Inc’s Sale2 published from 1980 into the mid-’90s. But where Le Sang Et La Rose and Sale2 today may be described as subtle, clandestine or refined in intent; Ultra Negative is a visually explosive malignant tumor within the contemporary that reflects the gory-depraved-beyond salvation-bad taste-mondo expressions visible in international 1990s subculture as well as the new evolving markets in contemporary art, home entertainment and boiling underground swap-culture. Designed to function as a gallery space in print guise, the visual editorial consists largely of: Paraphilia various, body modifications, death journalism, medical curiosities, art photography to tattooing. In addition, Ultra Negative also showcase frontier talents such as Trevor Brown, Kiyoshi Ikejiri and Kiyotaka Tsurisaki to Tokyo’s underground and an international network of fanatics.

The Ultra Negative volumes were solely curated, edited and published by Kobayashi with Jun Aoto as editorial assistant. Kobayashi is furthermore responsible for the printing and binding of the volumes - at times helped by friends such as Tsurisaki. Artist Trevor Brown executed the design for Ultra Negative’s title logo. In total two volumes were published, both in 1997. The first - ‘No. 1 Vol. 1’ - was issued in January, this number - ‘No. 1 Vol. 2 - in June. Each volume was issued as a standard edition (popular) with a print run of 200 and a special edition of 70 x  with alternated covers. Both volumes were developed in the ‘cut and paste’ print tradition of fanzine culture (with the help of a word processor) and printed using an ordinary copier. The series comes with color covers, while the content is in monochrome black and white.

Offered here is a ‘near mint’ copy of Ultra Negative «No. 1 Vol. 2: The Popular Edition» number 186 / 200. The copy has been storaged in a clear bag and seems unread. No wear or age discoloration to cover or pages, the binding is intact.

«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».
