REVIEW: Merzbow - Life Performance

A review of Merzbow's rerelease from 198fucking5, when I was still in primary school.  It's Merzbow.  And it's interesting.  Written for Heathen Harvest, and precisely edited by Mr Sage Weatherford.

"This music has not aged one moment, while everything around it has shifted and slid through cold wars and cocaine, wrinkle cream and botox. When these clanking and crunching monstrosities (all entitled ‘Nil Vagina Mail Action’, for no reason that is clear to anyone but Masami Akita) burst through one’s speakers, they have absolutely no idea what year it is, and really don’t care about context; these things live in their own universe, with their own timeline, and only ever intersect with our cosmology if and when their demented creator deems it appropriate."
