Keiji Haino is a bad motherfucker. I've seen him twice, but never Fushitsusha. Fucking jealous.

cool someone mentioned Pain Teens. I'm not sure how well they fit, but I'm a Texan and saw 'em a bunch in the 90's. Once with Sonic Youth and Pavement, one time with an amazing forgotten band called Johnboy, and a few other times as well. Bliss Blood was one of the few chubby girls with bangs that I woulda fucked the shit out of. That was before the whole fat girl population of the USA tried to style themselves like Betty Page, though.

Havent heard any of those bands, I will check it out.

Since there was talk about books in the psychedelic thread, anyone read any good books relating to this thread?

Some years back I was heavily into free jazz/fire music I read "As Serious as Your Life: The Story of the New Jazz " by Val Wilmer.
I highly recommend it to anyone into that kind of stuff!

Ben Watson - Derek Bailey and the Story of Free Improvisation was also good.

there are tons of books on noise  and 20th century composition because it's attracted art historians more than just music journalists.
one book I can heartily recommend is Talking Music, which is a book of interviews with lots of interesting American composers-
from John Cage to Conlon Nancarrow to Steve Reich to Glenn Branca to John Zorn. Definitely a good read.

I also really like the Phaidon series books on 20th century composers. The one on the Minimalists is excellent.

holy shit man, i totally forgot about Keiji Haino/Fushitsusha. thanks for even mentioning him. i need to get on it and buy some of his stuff.
(and i need to check those other artists out too.)

that Talking Music book sounds rad. i remember really being into this No-Wave book that had an intro/forward by Thurston Moore.

found it: http://www.amazon.com/No-Wave-Post-Punk-Underground-1976-1980/dp/0810995433

What are some of your guys thoughts on Merzbow?  He's got some cool stuff but he's also got some shit that I just can't get into really.

I have Silence by John Cage but never got around to read more than the first piece.
Where he writes (in (1937!!!!):
"I believe that the use of noise to make music will continue and increase until we reach a music produced through the use of electrical instruments which will make available for musical purposes any and all sounds that can be heard. Photoelectric, film and mechanical mediums for the synthetic production of music will be explored."
 
That No Wave book is cool!

I have never been into Merzbow myself.

I still stand by Stalaggh's Projekt Misanthropia being the most fucked up thing I've ever heard.  Even if the screams aren't mental patients, it's still eerie as fuck.

I saw an Aaron Dilloway post but no Robert Turman post yet????
This dude's amazing, played with sketchball Boyd Rice in NON for a while only to drop off the face of the earth in Ohio and put out a beautifully minimal ambient album (Flux). To go from NON to that is way sick. He also put out more dancey experimental stuff later in his career.







These guys are my fav too, some french wierdos from the mid 80's, vocals are real cool
