Keiji Haino & Derek Bailey ‎– "Songs" (Incus Records ‎– CD 40) 2000

Thanks to Jan Maarten, we now have the Haino/ Bailey collaboration.A true gent.On behalf of all, we bring you gratitude in bucketfuls.

Two guitar hero's that are as far removed from Jimmy Page, and those other incredibly boring standard axe wielders, than you can imagine.
This is like taking any guitar solo from the first fifty years of Rock music, feeding it through a hardcore pulverising unit, and separating the dust and the shards, gluing them to a music box cylinder, playing it once, before smashing it with a sledgehammer.
It has NOTHING to do with conventional guitar traditions whatsoever!
Haino's vocalising is similarly split into micro-syllables and splinters of words that seem to mimic its six string equivalent, and vice versa.
If in your world, Jimi Hendrix was from Mars, then this is from an exo-planet sucked through a wormhole from an anti-universe somewhere that barely exists.
