The King of Japanese Noise, Merzbow, was joined on stage by Hungarian drummer extraordinaire, Balázs Pándi (known for his work with The Sun Ra Arkestra, Bill Laswell, Justin Broadrick, Bong-Ra, Venetian Snares and more). The special event on 29th September 2016 took place under the roof of the legendary FAC251 building, where many of Manchester’s musical elite set foot, being the original home of Factory Records HQ. The show features an exemplary performance of Masami Akita’s trademark Japanoise, but the addition of Balázs Pándi’s improv drumming gives the whole evening an almost musical, jazz feel. 44 minutes. Ltd x 500 copies in a gatefold digisleeve.
