Episode 9: Flare Gun

For this strange 1994 12″ from UK label short-lived Ten Bob Swerver, we had Elden M (Allegory Chapel Ltd., Avellan Cross) over for a nice loud listen. Elden talks about joining Merzbow on stage, touring Japan in the 90s and we give our take on a weird record from the classic era of Merzbow, including a B side with the Masami/Reiko/Bara power-trio!

Episode 4: Storage

Some late ’80s Merzbow here, selected by Grant Richardson (GNAWED) who stopped by while on tour, and as usual I can’t seem to keep Mike Connelly away from these listening sessions. Sewers, shipping containers, forklifts and orchestral composition are a few of the items on hand as we descend into the junk cavern.

Episode 2: Green Wheels

I’m joined again by Mike Connelly, along with our friend Bill Hutson (Rale, Tattered Syntax, clipping.) who chose 1995’s GREEN WHEELS CD+5″ from Self Abuse Records to discuss. We try to pronounce the track titles, talk about why Merzbow is THE ONE, and the sterilization of “bad sounds” from noise.
