One of the more recent and obscure acts from Japan I can think of is Celluloid Murder. They did 2 separate tapes on Fusty Cunt and New Forces - "Dig Up" (released on Fusty) is longform harsh noise with a psychedelic and "autistic" bent to it. "Celluloid Murder's Magnificent Garden" (released on New Forces) is more close to avant-garde rock and sound collage, similar to Violent Onsen Geisha. Both are pretty good, but I never saw them being mentioned anywhere. Maybe because the humorous aspect of it turned a lot of people off considering the output of Fusty and New Forces? Hopefully someone releases another tape of them in the future!

K2 recent reissues are highlighting some good old material in the catalog.

Urashima, Narcolepsia and now me, haha. And I heard some friends are also re-issuing other material.

Also bandcamp here: https://k2music3.bandcamp.com/

Is Nobuo Yamada actually Richard Rupenus?  The couple of things I've heard are good...really good, but the level of homage is weird, like cult worship.  And I have a difficult time taking Artbreakhotel seriously.  There's just something about that name that triggers me even more than all the stupid noisecore that doesn't faze me.  This is a great listen:

Artbreakhotel/Yamada is great (and he's not Rupenus, I'm afraid). The CD on Tordon Ljud is excellent, as is the mentioned tape on Vitrine. Also, the Quasispecies Four LP is an overlooked gem, I think (Yamada, Mikawa, Shimada and Kou). The name Artbreakhotel is awful though, I agree.

Just listened to the Love and Sincerity (?) track from SI podcast. Great! But I couldn't really understand the end of introduction, because the sound was already starting. So, where's this track from? (As far as I understood, not from Come again comp.)
Is there anything else they released? Not much information available from discogs.
Thanks!

There is probably a lot of noise in Japan which didn't make it to very known. Probably similar to promo tapes Self Abuse may have received, I have several unreleased (as far as I know) or advance recordings sent to me in 90's. Projects like Taichi, what for example discogs only mentions in one compilation. Building of Gel and its side projects, which I think MDM was it? two guys of Building of Gel doing nice electronic noise.
Lots of other obscurities like Hentaitenno, Mad Recital, Atrocity Master, Sinner's Crime, Peeping Tom, Mamarracho, Aki-Mekura, Riku (sister of Diesel Guitar, great!!), Colloid, Comfort,........ pff. I guess should re-visit and comment some of them. Not all were something one should even remember, but some others most definitely would be worth of doing even "from shadows of japanese noise ug" historical observation comp, hah..

you have unreleased MDM/Building of Gel????

I never wanted to talk about these cus I didnt need other people on the trail, but I figure he has em digitized, now we need to get physical reissues.  I give up on tracking og's.

Fucking AWESOME, to me, 1982-3 noise releases from Ken from Marble Sheep and Hideo Tobita and Masanori Ando.

One is hard panned L so prob needs to be resolved, but besides failing to buy the Cement Woman tape when I was in highschool these have been impossible to find...

Lets reissue these.  I assume Ken could, since he runs Captain Trip, but IDK if he wants to...

cement woman is so great name. Some stuff pulled out of old tape is used on DEDICATION 2 compilation. Really unique. This project is something that has been talked with friends for decades. It took until discogs was active to really discover who was behind the mysterious project.

Anyone know anything about project called NIVI IRO ?
Not even sure if this release is really Japanese and called that. All hints towards it. From 90's most likely. Sony C-10 tape that were barely available anywhere else but Japan. Typewriter text on labels say NIVI IRO I  and NIVI IRO RO. Packaged in paper envelope consisting some Japanese writing and in postcard size kind of photo-paper package. Holes burned into it. Pretty good field recordings/industrial noise waste sounds, short burst of more harsh stuff, but mostly just eerie and obscure sound.
