"Like no other music in this planet, these two Japanese noise masters deliver obsessive, precise and unforgettable live sets of intense electronic harsh beauty. Legendary Japanese noise masters Incapacitants and Pain Jerk performed for the first time ever in the US at No Fun Fest 2007, this CD include crystal clear board recordings of their sets, mastered for full audio brutality. If you havent had the pleasure of experiencing either of this acts live this is your chance, if you have then this is also your chance to re-experience two of the most amazing live performers of our time. Liner notes by Carlos Giffoni and Chris Goudreau (Sickness). Incapacitants began in 1981 as Toshiji Mikawas solo project in Osaka, where Mikawa collaborated with Yamatsuka Eye and others. Later, in Tokyo, Fumio Kosakai became a member, to form the current duo. From the beginning, while the attempt to achieve pure NOISE has been the most important aspect of their sound, they have also been famous for their stage performances, which are so wild they may remind people of pro wrestling matches. This aggressive, energetic style and the beauty of their NOISE are unrivaled. Along with Hijo Kaidan, Merzbow, C.C.C.C., and Solmania, Incapacitants is one of the most well known of the NOISE bands which started out in the early 80s. Because of the members other work (Mikawa is a bank employee, and Kosakai works in a government office) they have rarely toured inside or outside Japan. Pain Jerk is a noise music unit run by Japanese musician Kohei Gomi. Pain Jerk was one of the more prolific and influential noise artists of the 1990s, and is one of the leading figures in the "dynamic" style of Japanese noise, alongside acts such as Merzbow and Kazumoto Endo." -No Fun.
