Merzbow – 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.

One thought on “Merzbow – Green Wheels

  1. Michael says:

    The title Green Wheels comes from a Dadaist poem by Kurt Schwitters (creator of the Merzbau) called:

    EVE BLOSSOM
    Oh thou, beloved of my twenty-seven senses, I love thine! Thou thee thee thine, I thine, thou mine, we? That (by the way) is beside the point!

    Who art thou, uncounted woman, Thou art, art thou? People say, thou werst, Let them say, they don’t know what they are talking about.

    Thou wearest thine hat on thy feet, and wanderest on thine hands, On thine hands thou wanderest

    Hallo, thy red dress, sawn into white folds, Red I love eve Blossom, red I love thine, Thou thee thee thine, I thine, thou mine, we? That (by the way) belongs to the cold glow! eve Blossom, red eve Blossom what do people say?

    PRIZE QUESTION: 1. eve Blossom is red, 2. eve Blossom has wheels 3. what colour are the wheels?

    Blue is the colour of your yellow hair, Red is the whirl of your green wheels, Thou simple maiden in everyday dress, Thou small green animal, I love thine! Thou thee thee thine, I thine, thou mine, we? That (by the way) belongs to the glowing brazier!

    eve Blossom, eve, E – V – E, E easy, V victory, E easy, I trickle your name. Your name drops like soft tallow. Do you know it, eve? Do you already know it? One can also read you from the back And you, you most glorious of all, You are from the back as from the front, E-V-E. Easy victory. Tallow trickles to strike over my back eve Blossom, Thou drippy animal, I— Love – Thine! I love you!!!!
