One should be careful when rating "Live In Tokyo", the release responsible for putting some of the final nails in the British Murder Boys coffin in Japan last year. This is merely an extract of one last live set (dubbed the “night of wrongness”), and stylistically you can expect a heavy dose of brattish, broken beat techno squeezed between some crowd feedback and predominant noises pieces. However, if you expect something along the lines of their classic releases on Counterbalance, if you expect the duo to push their brand of techno into ever more extreme sonic territory, you might get your expectations crushed.This 12" works best when played and perceived as a live recording, not a product of a brand new studio session. The opening track, Start, is goosebumps all the way. Twenty minutes of sculpting a wall of digital noise, gothic cries and industrial hiss, devoid of rhythmic elements, leaving glimpses of groove for the final strokes. Sure, it's a patience exam, however, would I like to attend a party where the DJ had the 'cojones' to jump start the party with this sort of a candy raver's nightmare. Regardless, I won't catch myself giving it a spin too often, as it's just too much for frequent listening sessions. As intriguing and layered as it may be, it just doesn't fare all that well on its own, without the remainder of the performance. Sure, while listening to it, I can clearly envision the Tokyo crowd star struck, scratching their heads and going " Now, what the phuck is that?!?! ". That said, listening to this gives me the shivers, and makes me all the more impatient regarding the forthcoming BMB DVD with the full performance!To further prove my point about this being a teaser of a full live recording and not a slab of wax with fresh material, take As Above So Below. Does anyone notice how this is a live rework of a Sandra Electronics track of the same name. You can find the original on the "Sessions" limited edition cassette, released on Minimal Wave (MW053) earlier this year... The version here has the drums intensified and the bass line invigorated, while the - admittedly - emo vocal bits are still irritating, but fortunately don't go on for too long.The last track, aptly titled End, is hardly bearable. A purist noise offering (I might as well be wrong here, but this is seriously not my cup of tea) unleashing shrilling, inarticulate sound bits, seemingly in a random fashion, guiding the "music" - and the entire performance - to its conclusion, accompanied by crowd cheering. As someone before me pointed out, Merzbow fans might get kicks out of this, I usually stop the record after B1 is up...I'd dare say this is worth owning, first and foremost, for the sake of completism, especially if you belong in that category of die hard British Murder Boys followers. By no means a bad record, I would never recommend picking this one up unless you've already acquired every track that has ever come out of their studio before this three tracker. The rate at which they released music was sporadic, to say the least, but it was all peerless material. This does not quite reach those standards, but given the fact these are chopped out bits from a live performance, I didn't expect it would...
A1 is a drone increasing slowly from layer of pure oscillators giving a raw side to the track, slow and discreet variation included.B1 is a rhythmic industrial / techno track remembering Regis's typical live beats with exhilarating vocals turning on reinforced by electric guitars in the 2nd part after a kinda "rock'n'roll" break. Punch in da face !B2 is a harsh feedback (not so much, i know there is always harsher, you noisehead!) with nice variation and texture and a deaf & traitor pitch raise that gradually fills the space until ending everything in discrete sonic debris. Polite applause interspersed with loud supplication for the return of the feedback's God. Sadly the needle is already at the end
Hugely disappointing after such a long wait. As Above So Below is a decent "half-rhythm" stomper with hypnotic vocals that becomes unstoppable by the end, and the last few minutes of First have some pretty cool rhythmic gymnastics going on...But the rest is noise. Noise. Noise Noise NOISE NOISE NOISE. First is 17~ minutes of noise, Final is another 4, tremendously shrill and pointless.Is that what you want to spend £10~ for? Noise? Do you worship the altar of Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music, or Merzbow? Buy now, you crazy person.Those looking for more relentless industrial techno workouts should be very wary, there is NOT much of that here.
I'm sorry my friend but words cannot describe how truly ignorant you are as an individual, more or less just how genuine little comprehension as well as understanding you have on certain genres of music, especially Avantgarde/underground after reading this insipid excuse of a "review"... Shake my head! Honestly this laughable rambling nonsense is way more disappointing than the monstrous EP by the world-renown British Murder Boys. Do some research about the subject next time pal. Just because you don't happen to like it however doesn't mean that anyone that does is instead a "crazy person", or that the music is 'shrill & pointless' (I mean really? Come on, what a stupid thing to say!). Also it's called Industrial Techno.
