i played some in the bar of the cinema where i worked once (cube cinema, you know, cool and independent, not a Vue) and people fucking bitched and moaned that it wasnt music and wanted something else on. So i put high on fire on. that taught them.
But anyway, whats your favourite Fushitsusha story? there is a great one in Japrocksampler when Keiji Haino starts a riot.
y'know, the one on their Wikipedia page.
I once saw him walking down the street in New York, wearing sunglasses, affectation cane in tow, some kinda cape-like getup flapping in the breeze. In the middle of the afternoon. He tripped. It was funny. Have also heard tales of him entering the studio w/some kinda translator/assistant who had to shush the perfectly-reasonable recording engineer b/c Haino was "praying."
it removed my quotation marks surrounding the whole thing :/
Always wanted to check them out as have (and dig) quite a few records that Keiji Haino been involved with. Any pointers?
browsing the stuff available on volcanic tongue - there are two live albums (double cd) that are amazing.
Will give them a shot
Haino related releases, before i realised you just wanted Fushitsusha.
Pathetique/Hisou is what i first listened to - amazing record.
Similarly, the two albums as Seijaku from a couple of years back are essential (they're 2/3 of the current line-up of Fushitsusha. Hell, one of those albums was even called "Mail from Fushitsusha"). Hopefully a good indication as to what this new album will sound like.
On a non-Fushitsusha tangent: His albums with Aihiyo are insanely good. More of an attempt at playing garage/psych pop/rock in Haino's inimitable style.
Will check these as well.
Would be great to get the full Haino list too - hate to see all that work go to waste!
Aforementioned Aihiyo & Seijaku recs
All of his collaborations with Tatsuya Yoshida (New Rap, Uhrfasudhasdd, Hauenfiomiume, Until Water Grasps Flame)
Similarly, Knead/Sanhedolin which is Haino + Ruins
Both Vajra albums (trio which also includes folk musician Kan Mikami)
Black Blues (both soft and violent versions)
Tenshi no Gijinka
Suff I wouldn't outright recommend to start out with, but are pretty neat:
Ama no Gawa is kinda interesting - early '70s feedback soaked guitar noise (well, i assume it's a guitar, anyway)
He also did a solo voice record for some French label last year - Un autre chemin vers l'Ultime
Haven't heard any of these - will have to work through. You'll probably be getting a thank you email from Volcanic Tongue in due course...
a little over a week ago. Can't wait to hear this.
I don't know Davey. I mean, I hope it has, butttt
I'm probs going to go forth and get the second double live one first (the first one is IMMENSE), but still, exciting!
today. It is really bloody good. First track is a belter.
can't wait til they come to Newcastle.
