A special bonus wrap-up episode now that we actually finished! We're joined by our friend and yours Ned Raggett to talk about the whole project! note: txt's audio sucks on this because his mic broke and he didn't realize. he's super good at podcasting.
Disc 50: Annihiloscillator (1996-97): That's all folks!
Disc 49: Motorond (1997): Oh boy, another live release. Those have always gone over well!
Disc 48: Space Mix Travelling Band (1994-1997): We get a genuinely enjoyable noise track that both Erik and Txt like! Surely this will continue for the rest of the disc right? Oh buddy. Txt's soul leaves his body.
Disc 47: Rhinogradentia (1995-1996): A decent grab-bag of outtakes. Erik goes whomp whomp wheee whomp whomp and txt goes vree vree vree vree.
Disc 46: Marfan Syndrome (1994-95): Reiko is back! But not on the tracks Masami tells us she's back on? Maybe? Erik and Txt get to the bottom of whether or not a short version of a track on a different release is actually...a long version.
Disc 45: Red Magnesia Pink (1995): Outtakes and outtakes of outtakes, maybe even a remix of an outtake. Lotta Galaga references in this one folks.
Disc 44: Liquid City (1994 - 95): Pure noise wall! Somebody is going to yell at txt for saying he doesn't like Throbbing Gristle but oh well
Disc 43: Exotic Apple (1992-94): The one with lots and lots of Arthur Lyman samples and Ufomammut references?
Disc 42: Sons of Slash Noise Metal (1993): We're back! We're finishing this stupid thing! We're not putting in samples! Don't ask why!!!
Disc 41: Brain Ticket Death (1993): A reference to Brainticket that's also a reference to Nurse with Wound that's also a
Disc 40: Music for True Romance Vol. 1 (1992-93): Music from a Merzbow side project.... supergroup? Anyway, this album is absolutely terrible.
Disc 39: Stacy Q, Hi-Fi Sweet Leaf (1991): Really hope the Rolling Stones don't issue a take down notice on this one.
Disc 38: Hannover Cloud (1990): Outtakes outtakes and more outtakes. We get Peanuts grown-ups speaking voices, sad chainsaws, and part 2 of a track that I'm not putting the title of here for fear of getting us kicked off itunes.
Disc 37: Newark Hellfire, Live at WFMU, USA (1990): LIVE FROM WFMU IT'S THE ERIK AND TXT DRIVE TIME HOUR WITH SPECIAL GUESTS: MERZBOW
Disc 36: Cloud Cock OO Grand (1989-1990): A new era of Merzbow, the start of the digital sound. Will txt and Erik like it? Will they offend the people of Holland?
Disc 35: SCUM - Steel CUM (1989) - The last of the SCUM records. Txt dives headfirst into the noise sewer and comes out smelling like spaceships.
Disc 34: SCUM - Severances (1989) - Merzbow makes a covers record. Sorta. Kinda. Not really.
Disc 33: SCUM Vol 2 (1988) - MORE SCUM - Erik talks about how much he loves Masami's phaser and txt does a deep-dive face first into a power drill.
Disc 32: SCUM Vol 1 (1988) - SCUI VOL 32 SCISSORS FOR CUTTING UP IMMERZBOX
Disc 31: KIR Tranformation (1989) - We join Masami and Achim Wollscheid for another collaboration work. txt complains about installation art.
Disc 30: Crocidura Dsi Nezumi (1987/8) - We quiet things down a lot with Disc 30.... until we don't. txt rants about his friendly neighborhood drum circle and Erik tries to make this into a Pink Floyd podcast.
Disc 29: Collaborative (1988) - Merzbow's collaboration CD with S.B.O.T.H.I. - Does bringing this new artist into the mix spice things up a bit? Also Erik makes phaser sounds for 7 minutes straight.
Disc 28: Fission Dialogue (1988): An interesting release combining the best of Merzbow's quieter, ambient-er side of things with uhh.. well, some other stuff. Erik talks about a flatulent man walking up some stairs.
Disc 27: Storage (1988): WAR. WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR. HUH - STORAGE.
