OOO-36

January Thirty + Uneasiness
Kazuma Kubota

OOO-36 | CD | Digital

“Serious and sour-sweet music/sound. The sensation I felt was close to a film or a collection of short stories. The piece made me curious about how it would develop in the future.” –

Ai Aso

Kazuma Kubota The flag-bearer of the Post Harsh Noise, His famous works up to now that lay the foundation of his present, have been turned into CDs and two titles will be released at the same time!


This work is a compilation of the single-sided LP that was exclusively released in 2012 by an Italian label “Dear Girl Called Wendy” and the self-released EP in 2009 with only 20 copies (!) into a single CD. “January Thirty” is a piece that wavers in between the cold and intense harsh noise full of a break feel with a lot of intermittences and repetitions, and the gentle ambient sound, as it moves forward. “Uneasiness” is a piece with a strong drive that starts with a field recording of the sound of the rain and guitar arpeggio then moves on to update the conventional noise perspective with its unique notion of beauty. Both have the critical element in foreshadowing the development of noise after the 21st Century and after 2020.

For these reissues, we selected James Plotkin (ex- Khanate, O.L.D.) to be the remastering engineer. With the skill of the master, the music’s update into a modern style solid audio/sound image was successful. The jacket protected by a sleeve case also contains a 12-page full-color booklet that contains many photographs of sceneries that Kubota himself has taken. Kazuma Kubota’s unique worldview has been expressed from visual aspects as well.
He is the advocate of a new noise format that has been gaining popularity internationally, with many followers already in various regions. The hidden masterpiece of such an artist that people should focus on !

HIJOKAIDAN

JOJO HIROSHIGE (Guitar/Vocal)

T.MIKAWA (Electronic sound)

JUNKO (Voice)

FUTOSHI OKANO (Drums)

The world’s first and Japan’s first noise band, formed in Kyoto in 1979 by Hiroshige JOJO and Natsuki Toshi. After Toshi left the band in 1980, T. Mikawa, who is still a member, joined the band, and many other members joined the band, and from 1980 to 1982, the band performed on stage with killer live performances. The group became well-known in Japan and abroad through its killer live performances. After several member changes, JUNKO joined in the 1980s, followed by Futoshi Okano in 2009, making the current four-member lineup the official lineup. There is also a version in which Naska Ka Nakaya (Electronics) participates as a guest musician.

Their 1982 album “Zouroku no kibyou” is a classic in indie music history and continues to be a long seller.

 The band has also performed live in many foreign countries and has released works from the United Kingdom, the United States, Italy, and other countries.

 In 2019, the band celebrated its 40th anniversary.

SISSY SPACEK

Blur / Grind unit was formed in Los Angeles in 1999. Founded by experimental musician John Wiese, the band has incorporated elements of noise core, collage, tape music, free improvisation, large scale ensembles, and much more, while continuing to work across diverse music scenes as a grindcore band. Over the years, many members have joined and left the band. The band has already released over 30 full-length albums, spanning many genres and utilizing numerous methods.

Over the past decade, Sissy Spacek has continued to release records across a wide range of genres while relentlessly pounding the crowd with grindcore that sounds like it came from hell in their live performances.

In 2018, the duo, Charlie Mumma (drums, vocals since 2008) and John Wiese (bass, electronics, vocals), as they have been organized since 2013, made their first visit to Japan to celebrate their 20th anniversary.

OOO-32

Session June.12.2016 – Kazuma Kubota / Mei Zhiyong

OOO-32 | CD

1 Session June.12.2016 44:14

Kazuma Kubota, the noise artist gathering support from various strata, and Mei Zhiyong, the most important figure of modern Chinese noise music. This work is the live recording of a 2016 studio session from a chance encounter with Japanese and Chinese contemporary noise artists. It is a collaboration of a high purity that fuses the synchronicity, which can be felt from the two artists’ solo work, as a tight and stiff noise. This critical piece presents the current Japanese and Chinese noise — a limited edition of 300 copies.

Kazuma Kubota:

The harsh noise artists are active in the heart of the metropolitan area. He gathers the support from listeners who seek out the delicate yet dramatic composition style constructed by the noise that is filled with a sense of speed and breaking, a beautiful ambient droning sound and field recording, etc., as well as from those besides noise listeners, who seek electronica, shoegazer, hardcore, and all the other emotional sounds.

In 2013, He released his first full-length album, “Dis-connected,” from the American noise label, “Ninth Circle Music.”

Similarly, in 2013, he released the EP/CD “Two of a Kind” as their first domestically distributed work from the”[…]dotsmark”, which sold out immediately.

He has been gaining attention from domestic and international media for their conversation with Mr. T.Mikawa on Ototoy and publication for interviews in the Night Science magazine and the Wire magazine etc.

In August 2016, they were invited as the headlining act for the “Amplified Humans Festival” in Dayton, Ohio, USA.

In 2017, they planned on releasing their LP record “Utsuroi”(reissue) from USA’s Amethyst Sunset.

Mei Zhiyong:

Meizhiyong is China’s most crucial international noise experimenter and hardware noise instrument DIYer.He is also active in independent film and photography, etc. Meizhiyong thinks that noise is the carrier of breaking all the rules. Only impaling nothingness will eliminate the contradiction between voice and body, body and mind. The sign of his performance is the strong acting style and the electronic musical Instruments transformed by hacking and circuit-bending. Meizhiyonghas has already toured Europe and Japan successively since 2014. He is now becoming the new blood of noise and experimental music in Asia.
