Watch out! I just nuked 1-post user "gear101" after receiving five different complaints over the course of about 20mins that he's sending PMs to people offering to sell gear. Seems pretty fishy! I'm sure he'll be back under a different name but with the same old game. Be careful! Thanks to everyone who let me know about this guy.

I'd like to listen to some Merzbow but there's so much - where do I start? Is there an obvious way in?

His mid-to-late 90s releases on Alien8 (Aqua Necromancer, Door Open at 8am) and Relapse (Pulse Demon, Tauromachine) are to my mind the easiest entry points (easy being relative, of course).

my 2 euro c would be on frog.

a collaboration, but most certainly pretty accessible, is the album he did with Kim Cascone Rondo / 7Phases / Blowback

Pulse Demon
I think it was the first noise I ever heard. It was a bright summer morning waking up with a bracing hangover. It was an awakening.

"Last of the analog sessions" 3 CD set on Important Records. Crazy harsh noise made with mostly EMS Synthi, VCS3 etc etc... best headcleaner out there!

...and of course the Partikel-collabs he made with me wink

Great - thanks - I just found a copy and it seems rare enough that if I hate it I'll be able to sell it...

"mostly EMS Synth, VCS3 etc" - so will it be like Jean Michel Jarre?!

LOL! thumbs up

My first (and only, so far) Merzbow was Amlux...I quite like it, but will be checking out some of the other suggestions in this thread.

I picked up Pulse Demon first, which I still love. I also really dig Venereology, Amlux, V (with Pan Sonic).

i only own pulse demon, but it was enough to put me off ever buying any more, haha! lol it's probably the most obnoxious music i've ever heard. if that's your bag you might like it!

no disrespect meant to anyone, i'm just not really into that type of noise/power electronics these days.

I don't think I am either - my idea of a good time nowadays is a walk in Suffolk - but I'm intrigued to know what lies at the outskirts instead of staying within my musical comfort zone.
