This mixed bag compilation features some of the most proeminent artists from Alchemy records. Quoted from Discogs: "Based in Osaka, Alchemy Records is run by Jojo Hiroshige and has been active since 1984. While Alchemy started as a noise label, progressive and psychedelic rock albums also make up a large portion of its catalogue."
So the content of this Cd is diverse, from the twisted punk-rock from Sekiri and Genbaku Onanies, the short proto hardcore blasts from SS, to the fucked up noise from Hanatarash, first musical project of Mr Yamatsuka Eye. If you're into harsh noise or power electronics, you might appreciate "B.A.D.", a 21 minute unsettling traumatic soundscape, including the squealing screeching Junko's vocal performance.
