GK Viva Guitar cover
Here's a description of the album from Aquarius Records:
Japanese avant-rock duo Guillotine Kyodai enlist a who's who of underground Japanese experimental guitarists to play a kind of "pass it along" game: each track features two guitarists dueting on an initial theme, which mutates as it is passed from guitarist to guitarist. Axemen include members of Ground Zero, Boredoms, Melt Banana, Solmania, Optical*8, Altered States, Bondage Fruit, and Kirihito. Not only conceptually interesting, this is good listening and probably essential to anyone who owns more than two records by the bands listed above.

"Eat shit noise music. Kill the all noise artists! We hate Whitehouse. Piss Off NWW. Asshole C93. Suck PTV. Fuck Coil. We love disco sound."--Ai Yamatsuka, Hanatarashi, from his artwork on the cover of the RRR compilation cassette Eat Shit Noise Music.

Eye's noise band, which is known for its early violent live shows--he has thrown gas drums and cases of beer bottles around, cut a cat in half with a chainsaw (relax, animal rightists, he had found it already dead in an alley before the show), accidentally cut his leg with a powersaw, and caused an estimated $60,000 in damages with a mini-backhoe at a club he was playing. For the sake of his own well-being, his current Hanatarash performances are much more safe, but no less noisy. The reason for the name change was that Eye wanted to drop the "I," meaning the individual, and have the band looked at as its own entity, not as himself.


All are under the Hanatarashi name and on the Condome Cassex label (Japan) unless otherwise indicated.

This was released with three different covers: the first edition had a picture by Les Crims (sp?) entitled "The Naked Woman Sticked Penis-Like Ice Bars," and is out of print. The other two are pictured underneath (my own copy has the middle cover). One of these was released with the Hanatarash sign painted on the front of the jewelbox. This and The Hanatarash and His Eye 7" were recorded in one day on a broken cassette recorder (therefore some tracks are heard on one channel only).

A great anecdote from college radio DJ gene.hopstetter.jr:
"I once received a frantic phone call. The person was afraid I was getting beat up and asked if I needed help. Why? I was playing Hanatarash 4 and she thought there was a fight in the studio."

ATAC: "Unsurprisingly, some tracks have been released on other releases. For instance 'King Of Noise' (CD-1) is "God-Noise-God" from 3 and 'Chant' (CD-5) is 'Ultracocker' from Hanatarashi. In fact, quite a few songs from 3 are on here, including different versions with other noises, etc, going on. Also, I think I heard a track from 2. CD-3 is in two parts, the first of which (I think it was the first...) was obviously released on the Live 88 CD on Mom'N'Dad."
Andy Bolus of
Evil Moisture E-mailed me to let me know that "a collabo(re)ation between evil moisture and the hanatarashi" was "comin out soon...". According to the link here, it'll be a double 10" vinyl release on Harbinger/Tochnit Aleph.

7" single (Resonance (UK)--RES 4.2) 1995?

Included with issue #2 of Resonance magazine. According to the mag, "It features 7 untitled pieces recorded in the Spring of 1995." The side A label has a picture of Eye looking kind of feminine, while the side B label pictures Otomo, and no text apart from "RES 4.2". ATAC, some copies had blank white labels, and "these recordings, I believe, come from the duo's London gig, when they performed as part of the London Musicians' Collective Festival of Experimental Music."

Eye Love Minga (Japan Overseas (Japan)--JO95 [heart] 14--vinyl single) 1995

This is a split single which Eye made with the 10-month-old baby girl Minga. Two one-sided heart-shaped discs glued together as one record, on marbled vinyl (my copy is turquoise with red touches) packaged in a transparent plastic sleeve with a paper corner insert in English on one side and Japanese on the other. Side One is the song "....." (Minga playing with a synthesizer and singing along), and Side Two is the song "Minga" (Eye performing an ambient instrumental track in tribute). No labels, but each respective side has a small heart-shaped-cutout picture of Minga and eYe stuck on it. SHINRO OHTAKE (19 [JUKE]) did a little work on Eye's side.
