"Wattle" is a new, two-part composition featuring Akita's traditional soup of unidentifiable metallic clanging, crushing feedback, jagged white noise, and various effects. It does not disappoint. There are no drums, no guitars, no vocals; just scorching electronic mayhem of the highest quality.
The colorful images here are based on photographs shot and subtly manipulated by Masami Akita, who sends the following message:
"Turkey is beautiful animal and do not eat them."
Masami Akita is, of course, the artist behind the seminal, vegan, straight edge, noise project, Merzbow. He lives in Tokyo.
These tracks were originally released by Elevator Bath as a limited edition picture disc LP, copies of which are also available here: www.elevatorbath.com
