Further Notes:

Subjects for Further Research [1990s]: Never trust a band beholden to Metal Machine Music. Never trust a band who dare you to take their horrible name literally, either. I checked out random albums and concluded that this drone-prone Osaka avant-rock collective wasn't for me. I mean, if "ambient hardcore" and a concept where all titles include the word "Anal" are your kind of thing, maybe you should be consulting some other expert. Rechecking, however, I agree that 1990's Soul Discharge is kinda funny--and that 1998's Super AE has a ritualistic vibe. This must mean they're mellowing.
