How did we all get here?

Talk about noise music. Reviews, rants, whatever.

Well, I liked Sonic Youth starting around the time Dirty came out (I was in middle school), so I've always enjoyed noise rock, but as for actual harsh noise/PE? I got really into splatterpunk and extreme hardcore movies and books etc which led to Peter Sotos which led to Whitehouse. Not very cool I know but that's the truth.

One of the first noise records I found too and in the used bin, but I think I paid $3 for it.

For some reason I had a DigiTech PDS20/20 delay with infinite repeat. It was fun to get 'cool loops' going in that thing.

I started recording the loops and other random crap on a Tascam 4 track my friend let me borrow.

It sort of evolved from there and then a friend gave me a catalog from Subterranean Records in SF. I had some money to spend on CDs so I picked up a handful of discs with interesting 1-line descriptions from unfamiliar artists.

Let's see, I remember "Excrete Music" from Violent Onsen Geisha was one of them. That one sticks out most in my mind as "wholly kkrap! there are people out there actually releasing this kind of stuff?!?!?!"

And then it became O.K. to continue doing noise.

I moved from SF to Tokyo in 1994 and about the third day I was there I found out about a show happening with Violent Onsen Geisha, Omoide Hatoba, Merzbow and some others.. I went there and met all those fuckers and they were super cool. Got one show in Tokyo late that year and that led to more shows.. and releases.. and other noise bull-pucky.

Sixteen years later... beeeelch...

For some reason I thought you'd been doing noise since the early 80s- or is that your partner in crime?

I have some cassette tapes from around 1989 that have Xome scrawled on them. Some of it's 'experimental' in nature and some is tweaked out Korg M1 patches sequenced with Cakewalk (DOS version, thank you!!) ... Most of it's rather embarrassing!! heh..

Basically around 1999/2000 inspired by SRL and other machine/robot art, googled for ideas for achievable electronic art projects and found Ghalaza's circuitbending stuff.

Also listening-wise at the time DHR etc..., and in Newport where i was living there were 'No Ground Processes' and other free for all experimental nights which i went to and eventually played at when I had some things which made noises + met other local noise acts most notably Snork Maiden.

i made some music - and i thought it is too soft sound so i wanted to add more white noise and metal noise over it - so i started to make stuff like that. in that time i listened to ebm mostly - but after making my stuff it sounded too one dimensional and thin to me so i started to search for more heavier sound - so i stumbled onto japanoise stuff...

At first, (as far as I remember) listening to the first album by Dulce Líquido some of you may say "blasphemy!", but i liked it and i found very interesting the use of "noises" in their beat material(or "power noise", how some people call it)... after that a friend introduced me to MZ 412, i'm a big metal fan so I was attracted by their concept, the mixture with black metal elements...later I discovered brighter death Now, after that I just started to search for all kind of noise realated stufff I could find ,at first lots of death industrial, power electronics, industrial material, later I started to listening more and more noise
I can't remember the order of the bands, but that's how I discovered Merzbow and tons of other stuff.
That's the story...

I discovered noise with CMI's Absolute Supper. Being addicted to metal this was something totally new and 'fresh' so I got deeper into it.
