Regular price $0.00 $50.00 Sale

In his first authored work since the almighty DOKKIRI, Kato David Hopkins dives into the genesis of the notoriously deep and secretive Japanese Noise scene with RUMORS OF NOIZU. Through extensive interviews, and his own knowledge as a first-hand observer, Hopkins provides a roadmap for heretofore totally uncharted territory in the history of extreme sonic exploration. Featuring the likes of Merzbow, Hijokaidan and Hanatarash alongside a bevy of lesser known freaks, Rumors Of Noizu compiles anecdotes and memories alongside flyers and photographs from the time, in an attempt to contextualize what is perhaps the most bewildering music scene in the history of the modern underground. Lulu's is proud to be stocking Rumors of Noizu, alongside the entirety of the Public Bath Press catalogue.

PUBLIC BATH PRESS:
Our latest book is a micro-history of the origins of Japan's pure noizu underground, focusing especially on Hijokaidan. The result of extensive interviews with participants and witnesses, it may have you searching for rare noise releases to damage your ears with. Starting with the discovery of the fun of improvisation by a bunch of young students, things gradually got out of hand before settling down to the genre known today as noizu.
