Noise - 天皇 LP (ALM, 1980)

Side A
死 (Der Tod)
水 (Wasser)

Side B
地球は青い (Die Erde Ist Blau)
天皇 (Tenno)
羊 (Schaf)

Legandary first recording of Tori and Reiko Kudo of Maher Shalal Hash Baz fame. The off-kilter methodology and stumbling attitude is still present, but here it's drenched in an abrasive and tape-hissy miasma. Somewhere between Suicide and Nico?

Gregory Joseph,

That's the same album as this one. One of the reissues has a different cover.
天皇 = Tenno = Emperor

Oh, duh. Wish I'd actually listened to the album first before leaving that ignorant comment!
