Bacteria – “28 Trax Demo” – [Regurgitated Semen Records]

bacteria2

Kawakami was the guitarist and frontman of Japanese d-beat punk band Disclose until his untimely death in 2007, when he chased sleeping pills with vodka. The same year Disclose put out their first album, 1994′s Tragedy, Kawakami’s secret side project Bacteria released this demo. On this 2015 re-release from Dan-Doh, the original 28 tracks are crammed onto a single side of a slab of pitch black vinyl to be played at 45 RPM. Blown-out vocals like a feral dog shrieking and howling, bursts of destroyed and demented guitar. If it weren’t for the drumming that appears a few minutes in and explodes as the record goes on, you could mistake this for a sludgy, fucked up noise record – a glimpse of Kawakami’s next act with the harsh noise project(s) Blackgoat/Goatworshipper. Filthy, raw, gut churning. Finally, a record that crust punks and noisedorks can all agree on!
