Album Review

Merzbow – “Microkosmos Volume 1” – [Blossoming Noise]

cinder   3/3/2010   12-inch, A Library

The first in a series of 5 entitled Microkosmos from Japan’s noise maker, Merbow (Masami Akita). Each cover will feature artwork created by Merzbow from 1982-83. Side A on this guacamole vinyl starts off with a happenin’ drummer, and soon spills into busy electronics. You can hear the drummer throughout the track, almost as if he was trying to escape a cube of angry buzzing wires. Lots of cymbal action, giving this track some sort of rhythm. Drummer vs. noise! The mayhem continues on side B. I think the drummer wins on this side. Drumming inferno!
