Later, in\r\nTokyo, Fumio Kosakai became a member, to form the current duo. From\r\nthe beginning, while the attempt to achieve pure NOISE has been the\r\nmost important aspect of their sound, they have also been famous for\r\ntheir stage performances, which are so wild they may remind people of\r\npro wrestling matches.

Along with Hijo Kaidan, Merzbow,\r\nC.C.C.C., and Solmania, Incapacitants is one of the most well known of\r\nthe NOISE bands which started out in the early 80s. Because of the\r\nmembers other work (Mikawa is a bank employee, and Kosakai works in a\r\ngovernment office) they have rarely toured inside or outside Japan.\r\nPain Jerk is a noise music unit run by Japanese musician Kohei Gomi.\r\nPain Jerk was one of the more prolific and influential noise artists\r\nof the 1990s, and is one of the leading figures in the dynamic" style\r\nof Japanese noise, alongside acts such as Merzbow and Kazumoto Endo." -No Fun.
