"Hotel ultra"
Year:  1994

Tracks:  2
Time:  34 min.

Another quite interesting release that has nothing ultra about it nor anything to do with a hotel. basically 2 tracks, "original hotel ultra" and "gay hotel ultra" that make absolutely no sense. at almost any given point, there is the sound of a saxophone in the back ground playing nothing in particular. a recording of a gay porno movie is playing (the police officer pulling over the speeding leatherboy type scenario) during the 1st track, along with some moaning and screaming and lots of japanese 70's funk and pop music playing in the background. the reoccuring sounds of various amounts and types of static also show up throughout both songs. some whipping sounds come in as well. fairly interesting production throughout that leaves a rather disorienting feeling to the listener. the 2nd track starts off fairly quietly and gets back into the same groove as the first track, sans the gay porn. the sounds of the sax and the static return along with some more melodramatic classical music that fades out into some electronic fidgetiness that breaks into some super funky santana type funk jam. this lasts for a bit before we are left with nothing more than just the electronic tones, static and that damn saxophone. the sounds of airplanes, a large crowd singing inside of an arena, and a man giving some sort of a speech also bleed in and out of the songs as it progresses. more talking and some piano playing in the background get thrown into the mix. i guess the fact that i do not understand any japanese keeps me from finding the hidden gem that might possibly lie in this mix somewhere. cover and back art are both dark green and red cartoon drawings that are hard to make out. definately an interesting piece, but not a great starting place.
put out by kubitsuri tape 1994.

"Tokyo anal dynamite"
Year:  1990
Country:  Japan
City:  Tokyo
Artist:  Juntaro Yamanouchi
Label:  Vis a vis audio arts
Format:  CD
Tracks:  18
Minutes:  9 min.
Genre:  rock
Style:         Noisecore























Started in 1985 as experimental noise, later continues as punk driven noisecore. Most of musicians were guests or session perfomers.The best album by The Gerogerigegege is Tokyo Anal Dynamite which is ranked number 4,473 in the overall greatest album chart with a total rank score of 238. An absolutely fucking amazing noise/punk album that lives up to it's title. Bandleader Juntaro Yamanouchi on bass with maximum overdrive and a man known as 死にました on drums and count-offs. Lo-fi even for the Geros, it's most likely recorded on a dictaphone or something as equally crude. The resulting products are 75 burts of noise disguised as punk rock. It's equally hypnotising and easy to get lost in as My Bloody Valentine's Loveless or '77 Live by fellow Japaneese Sister Ray worshippers Les Rallizes Denudes. And whilst it's harsh and good, it's also very funny. There's a cover of The Cure and The Ramones, amongst others, which, of course, sound nothing alike to the original. This is the band's most famous release, and with good reason. It's out of print, just like all of their other releases, but Juntaro does not care about piracy, and if you manage to track this CD down, you've found something to cherish for a lifetime.
