K2 - Tekhnodrug CD (Narcolepsia) CD/CDr/DVD

Narcolepsia, POR

Reissue of a long-lost tape from 1993. K2 has long been at the fore-front of Japanese noise and is known for his harsh, collage style.

This record isn´t an all-out harsh-fest in the way that contemporaries like Hijokaidan are, but is very varied in sound. There´s creeping synth tone, screeching feedback, piercing blasts of white noise, rumbling static. Compositionally there are long periods of coherence, with an almost musical sensibility, but these are often brought to a shattering halt by a blast of ear-splitting noise.

Edition of 500.
