The sound of Genesis Porridge’s false breasts. Here.

This Morning on background noise, two words only Throbbing Gristle.  Throbbing-Gristle or TG as they are more affectionately known are the founding fathers of industrial music.  They formed in October 1976 in England and their slogan was “industrial music for industrial people”. Richard has some words about the great importance of TG historically.  They Have Just Released their first recording in 25 years.  Called quite cryptically, Part Two: The Endless Not.  We will finish the morning with tracks chosen by Richard from our favourite throbbing-gristle record, DOA The Third and Final Report Of Throbbing-Gristle from 1981 .  For anyone unfamiliar the members are Chris Carter, Peter Christofferson, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Genesis Breyer P Orridge. The CD Is Released on the mute US label. It Is a Beautiful surprising mixture of the old TG industrial sound with an injection of some new fresh instrumentation and arrangements .

In 1985, I bought LP called “Fight Is On” which released from LAYLAH records,
It was my first experience to meet our experimental / noise music. 2 years later,  I’ve been in
London, England to buy more records and want to see
Current 93, NWW, Organum and more artists.I met many artists and spend good time with them while 1 years in
London. I was very lucky.
 I bought record & cassette from artist / label (United Dairies, Broken Flag….) directly andshipped to
Japan, then my friend sell them in Japanese market.
My friend just starting record shop called “Les Disques du Soleil” in
I support him. (Actually my 1st release is 7″ single ” ORGANUM – Drome” at Les Disques du Soleil in 1988) I was supported to Les Disques du Soleil from 1986 to 1990.While this 4 years. we were handling noise / experimental music stuffs.I sent letter to many labels & artists in the world to get their music stuffs.I got to know them at that time. (Merzbow, Gerogerigegege, Masonna, Hijokaidan too. Roger / Extreme stay 1 night at my apartment.)I was distributed Japanese Noise to Japanese market and also export / introduce to overseas. (Les Disques du Soleil released Japanese artists compilation album called “Noise Forest” in 1992.) I like “quiet music” it means ambient & atmospheric.I got 2 cassettes of Kaiser Nietzsche from Freedom In A Vacuum,
I was really shocked to listen it. It was really beautiful & atmospheric electronics music I’ve never heard.Then I decided to start my own label and that release their 1st LP record. It was 1988.  KAISER NIETZSCHE – HeterologyCanadian artist John Kamevaar, Thomas Handy & David Scurr formed.Released 3 cassette on Canadian label “Freedom In A Vacuum” and 1 split LP with Japanese artist Yuzuru Syogase. (later re-released on CDfrom Artware production,
Germany) They made electro – acoustic music. I was feel “Japanese mind” from their music.
It means so QUIET. Like Japanese garden in temple. I sent release offer directly. PGR – A Hole Of Unknown DepthOne of my favorite artist Kim Cascone. I known the word “atmospheric” from his music.I sent release offer directly. Ultra Milkmaids – Vorely RelayAlready I got their early release. It was beautiful ambient music.I went to France in 1997 with
AUBE. (AUBE joined music festival in
then I met them and decided to release their YOUNG new music. (In 1997, they are 20 years old..)This album is remix album of “Vorely” which released on French label ”

Museum”, 1997.It was very happy, old (?) artists remixed YOUNG music. VANCE ORCHESTRA – At Rondom AgainI met them in 1997,
France as same time & place as Ultra Milkmaids.
Vance joined same music festival. I saw their concert. Their music was really nice, it seems BIZARRE COLLAGE. I’ve never heard it.I decided to release. 
AUBE + MB – Junkyo I am friend with Akifumi Nakajima for 15 years.I wanted to release his music sometime. MB sent music material to Akifumi and Akifumi remixed MB’s one.Akifumi remixed sounds like OLD MB’s style, it means INDUSTRIAL not New Age.Music is old style MB mixed up hard style by
 I like “quiet music” but almost Japanese Noise music is so hard / harsh style.Yes, I like it but do not want to release.  Concerning my still under construction web-site.Just my lazy. I like sounds which not too much computer and effects because I feel “warm & natural “from it. It seems your music is like same.I respect for your activity of long time. Thank you very much again your interest & support.I’m very happy that more peoples like our music. Sorry for may poor English. Best Regards Hideo & Chizuko Hayami
