PAIN JERK & JOHN WIESE - Nerima CD (Anoema Recordings)
Hey there, looking for a healthy dose of electrocution? We got it right here! Two titans of noise, Pain Jerk (aka Kohei Gomi) and John Wiese, continue their trans-Pacific affairs. While the previous episodes have been mail collaborations with Mr. Wiese at the helm, this studio live session has a more distinct Pain Jerk flavor to it (and is a tasty aperitif for his yet-to-appear new studio material). A vivid amalgam of vintage analog synthesizers, classic noiselectronics and DSP, at less than 18 minutes this brief statement in fury leaves nothing to be desired. In a world filled with filth and depravity, it is a rare pleasure to encounter such a beautiful & vibrant example of good, old-fashioned noise. This is music to soothe the soul.
