Merzbow's Remblandt Assemblage.

Okay, now it’s sounding more interesting. This album comes pretty much out of left field — it’s noisy, all right, but it seems philosophically closer to AMM-like improv. The disjunctions between the sound ideas remind one of a Nurse With Wound album — done in one take! There’s a toilet flushing, there’s random squelches and squalls, more cutlery-shaking, and so on. But the last 15 minutes are spent on a totally self-indulgent guitar solo (or rather, prepared guitar solo) which does not really go anywhere.
