Not a fan myself, but stumbled on this yesterday:

Just get Veneriology and go from there. It will be easy after you absorb that brainfuck of an album.

Better stay away from The Gerogerigegege then.

Not a fan myself mind you!

For the OP: An "easy" in is "Music for Bondage Performance" - only lightly touches on noise. If you want to jump straight in there wait for Babaluma's copy of Pulse Demon. In the middle - maybe "1930" on Tzadik?

Cheers

EDIT: Link fixed, sorry...

I'm not too much of a merzbow connoisseur but i always enjoyed merzbeat which i've been told is on the more "listenable" end of the spectrum.
I have Zophorus too which I think newer and pretty good.

If I had a main go-to Merzbow through the years, it would definitely be:



Metalvelodrome. The Alchemy releases have never been easy to find, but they are my faves.

I like some Merzbow, like 1930, but I think Massona is a lot more interesting and rewarding. Check out Ejaculation Generater or Frequency LSD.

And Aube is usually lumped in with the other Japanoise guys but personally I feel his music is a bit more sophisticated than most of that, more in line with some of the European experimental school...

what's the name of the record where he collaborated with a female singer, and the songs were split with Merzbow on one channel, and the singer on the other?

It would have been pre-2000.

It's been haunting me for years and I've had no luck finding it in Merzbow's vast discography.

Would be Merzbow/Ladybird - Balance would it not?

Thankyou so much dude. I've been looking for those covers for so long.

Found one of the tracks on Youtube to confirm... in some bullshit playlist called "hipster credentials"

WTF? lol

I must confess to having an unfair advantage, I probably know more about Merzbow's back catalogue than I should. Back in the days before discogs most artist discographies were hosted on dedicated sites and I was slated to do a Merzbow page for Brainwashed. Fell through but I did get most of the discography done, 200+ titles I think at that stage?

Cheers
Blair

Hahaha.

My band recorded a couple of songs for a Gerogerigegege tribute that , as far as I know, never came out.
