I can see how the shells might lure you to think metal though. Either way, knockout stuff, I love Pinched Sack as well.

Quote from: ConcreteMascara on May 20, 2020, 09:27:33 PMMasayuki Takayanagi & Abe Kaoru - 解体的交感 CD - Craftman Records - got this CD with several other psych/avant/noise CDs Japan in the mail yesterday. It's my first listen to Takayanagi or Kaoru, and really my first intentional listen to free jazz that I can remeber. I know both of these guys are important figures of the free jazz/improv scenes, that they're both dead now, and like most Japanese artists most of their stuff is expensive. The last month has been a lot of Solmania and PSF related stuff so I think I went into this as ready to hear it as a I could. But what does it sound like? Some dude torturing a sax (and occasionally clarinet and harmonica) and another dude abusing a guitar, but with minimal distortion. Like two noisy alley cats being strangled in each channel, kind of. It's exactly what I expected noisy free jazz to sound like, but I liked it better than I thought I would. It's legitimately torturous listening in parts, not dissimilar to stripped down Solmania tracks or some Hijokaidan. I can't say if it's good compared to other free jazz but I can say I'm not just gonna shelve it for a decade. I expect to be giving it a fair amount of spins before I'm off this kick. Also sorta worth mentioning, I got copy of the Ultra High Quality CD pressing and while I haven't heard a different CD version of this album to compare the clarity/fidelity, I can say that it seems like this sounds really good...... for what that's worth. I need a UHQCD of something I've heard a million times to see what if any difference the UHQCD process makes, but I'm also quite sure my hearing is too damaged to notice the difference.

Fucking ripping 7". I did not like so much previous recordings, but that 7" made me want to check something what they may having upcoming....
Quote from: ConcreteMascara on May 29, 2020, 06:44:04 PM不失者 – 不失者 1st 2xCD - PSF 1997 - 6 years after listening to Fushitsusha for the first time, specifically track 1.3 すきにやればいい, I finally own this album. I've written several times about how I ordered this album and received The Time is Nigh instead, which through me for a loop. Since then I've been slowly buying up the '90s 不失者 albums, most of which fall closer to The Time is Nigh than this album. I've been laboring under the impression that aside from すきにやればいい, Fushitsusha primarily offered variations of soul rending inferno. And I mean that literally, the sound of Fushitsusha is one of your or their "souls" being taken/cast/torn from the body and cast elsewhere. If I can say it without sounding completely asinine, it's metaphysical or at the very least existential music. It demands attentive listening with no other distractions.But then there's 不失者 1st. Finally hearing the whole thing for the first time last night, I am utterly blown away by how grounded and human it all sounds. It feels much closer to true blues than black-pillar-of-light-hell-inferno. It's so easy to listen to I could imagine playing it for friends! It's absolutely amazing but it's pleasant too. Who could have thought? I guess I'm the last one in on this, so everyone else thought. And to my slight surprise track 1.3 すきにやればいい is the best of the bunch. Legitamtely sad music, but not in the mopey faux-emotional way, but true reflective sorrow as an 11 minute blues piece. I challenge you to listen and feel nothing.I suppose it's hard to talk about Fushitusha or Keiji Haino in a way that does make you sound like a dandy fop, maybe because in my mind they epitomize "Art" in such an obvious way. But to be fair I think myself or Force Neurotic or Bloated Slutbag can wax poetic just as easily about "scum" noise easily.
