K2 / T. MIKAWA / GOVERNMENT ALPHA / SCUM / LEECHER / UNSUSTAINABLE SOCIAL CONDITION + NAPALM DEATH IS DEAD / LIKE WEEDS / P.I.G.S. / WOLF CREEK
Nine live recordings from two nights of live performances at Tokyo’s club Ochiai Soup during a summer of unrelenting hea. The recordings were comprised of direct board and room recordings generously provided by Yasutoshi Yoshida’s -Government Alpha- recording device. Kenny Sanderson (Like Weeds/FACIALMESS) curated the two days of Oxen Records at Ochiai Soup, his long standing, continued support and promotion of modern Japanese Noise is an inspiration. Essentially this release is as much a tribute to his efforts as it is also a way to present a document of exceedingly talented contemporary Japanese Noise artists in a live setting. Mastered by William Hutson (*except Government Alpha) Original Artwork by Kevin Donald McEleney, translation by Tamaki Ueda.
