Ten inches of rusted metal junks eclipse all light with K2 “Anybody Can’t Catch Up With This” on Ant Zen. The material on this record is based on the classic album “The Rust,” so we compare both releases and discuss why 10″s are such a great format for noise. Additionally, Tara teaches us about the actual mountain K2.
Are we in the cosmos? Underwater? The jungle? It’s possible we are in all three at the same time with Nord “Electronic Initiation.” Nord is one of the earliest Japanese noise projects, and this brain buster of a CD came almost 20 years into Nord’s existence. Midway through the episode, we got messages from Kimihide Kusafuka, aka K2, aka owner of Kinky Musik Institute, the label that put this CD out. Kusafuka gave us some behind the scenes info on “Electronic Initiation” including one bit of information that changed our whole perception of the album.
