This is a live performance which lasts just over three quarters of an hour, recorded at Gallery Komai in Tokyo in 1984. It sees KAZYUKIK. NULL not only playing his guitar & shouting, but bashin' metal too. MERZBOW at this point were MASAMI AKITA on drums & effects, REIKO AZUMA on cymbals, YUSHIO KANO on electric violin, and ASAMIHAYASHI on bass. It begins in a chaotic, discordant anti/rhythm suggesting Free Jazz, yet far more manic. Although the metal motif is well to the forefront, there's hardly a suggestion of the other well-known 'Bashers' who reigned around that time. The drums, cymbals & metal all power along while the violin scrawls painfully & the bass lurks somewhere in the sub-bassment of JAH WOBBLE's old residence. It has a striving, driving, pained quality to it, a searching for release or relief. It transforms, the drumming keeping up a steady Rock-like tempo while the guitar sustains in long drones, NULL yells & screams, and the whole thing smooths out, becoming a flatter but no less dangerous piece of music. It moves through a series of structural collapses, defying the 'gravity' which sucks at it, caught up in it's own hell-bound impetus, driving along by a kind of perpetual motion. Around 10 minutes before the end it finally succumbs to the lure of dislocation, slowing down into a swirling pool of it's component parts, a soup of noise threatening to become instilled with life once more at any moment, which it does briefly before finally, abruptly departing at a high point. A classic performance from these stylish noise-makers. A loose cousin of Jazz Improv, albeit one spoken of only in hushed tones & sotto voce comments. This should fit into the collection of anyone who like their music with a more harsh edge. It borders on Pure Noise but never quite gets there, choosing instead to abuse the more universally familiar Rock sound, roughing up it's smooth-traffic-worn walls with a harsh, discordant edge. Originally reviewed for Soft Watch.
