An absolute classic VHS called for our first in-person episode in a long time as we all got together to watch “Kingdom of Noise: Japanese Noise Selection.” Truly mandatory viewing for everyone, it was great to revisit as these clips were some of the first noise visuals we saw back in the 90s. This tape is a perfect showcase of the breadth of Japanese noise featuring Masonna, Merzbow, Seed Mouth, Incapacitants, and much more. A mandatory look into extreme history.
We travel back to a fateful night in 1912 with Seed Mouth’s astounding “Titanic” CD from 1996. An incredibly unique and special Japanese project, Seed Mouth brings something ineffable to the noise landscape. In addition, we discuss the Titanic disaster and how we see it relating to the expanse of this album.
