T.MIKAWA (Electronic sound)

JUNKO (Voice)


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.


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.
