Aside from chiming in on The Time Is Nigh, I’d like to put a good word for a few Fushitsusha of the louder persuasion.

The Caution Appears
Same line-up- Haino, Ozawa, Kosugi- as Time Is Nigh (and PSFD 15/16). While not quite capable of peeling the same degree of paint there are moments. At first seemingly mere moments,  almost like a compilation of excerpts from much longer pieces, but then comes redemption in the form of more full realized pieces. getting better and more wall-stripping as the disc winds up.

Gold Blood
Same line-up and good title for the lugubrious heaviness on tap. Very nice live renditions of favorite Fushitsusha, among other material, caught up in vertiginous, swirling, echo chamber. Dense clusters of crimson gilding, greedily sucking up air, consuming space, sound field on more an a few occasions pretty much maxed out.

Withdrawe, This Sable Disclosure Ere Devot'd
Haino, Ozawa and new drummer Takahashi. Even more deeply immersed in the swirling echo chamber, broken up with more Haino-ish dribble n drone. Occasionally feels as thought the band is trying to edge toward proper freak-out song structure, but soon to withdraw for residual fields of pure squall.

Just cause I’m feeling a bit guilty about leaving out PSF releases proper. Four tracks on this one, with the Haino, Ozawa, Kosugi line-up. Last track is 45 minutes and is all the monster one might hope and expect. At the 30-minute mark all scorching hell breaks loose.

Anyone heard the fairly recent 3xcd set on Utech? The Haino, Ozawa, Kosugi line-up from 1996, so it would have to be good. Peter Brötzmann apparently contributes, which I’m less excited about.

Listening a lot to Shizuka in the last days. But damn, their records are hard to find or really expensive.

Been bumping lots to P.S.F records during last few weeks... These two have been particulary good:

Toho Sara

Droney & shamanistic ritual temple music featuring interesting artists such as Acid Mothers Temple`s Makoto & La Musica founder Asahito Nanjo.


Folky stuff thats wandering somewhere between improvisation and structured songs. Founded by Chie Mukai in 1981.
Fun Fact: did a cassette to John Duncan`s AQM label in the 80`s.

Was thinking about The Time is Nigh, but went with The Wisdom Prepared 1998 instead.  A 75-minute clusterfuck of pure power.  A band, sounding like a band, at its most furious.  The problem is that it wasn't enough.  Get sucked into their hole, and you really don't want to climb out of it.  What album next?  Try this one.  Nah, that won't do.  Try that one.  Nah, that one won't do.  Fuck it.  The Time is Nigh.
