Just nabbed a couple of last minute tickets to give away for Japanese avant-garde legend Keiji Haino’s Fushitsusha who play The Village on Tuesday night.
FUSHITSUSHA Keiji Haino’s extensive career has encompassed a dizzying range of approaches from wild, guitar-led ensemble rock and near-Neolithic drumming; live electronics, untutored explorations of lute and flute, to voice experiments and extended performances for gamelan and other percussion.
He has also collaborated widely with the likes of Derek Bailey, Merzbow, Jim O’Rourke and Tony Conrad. Throughout, Haino has retained a visionary focus upon temporary suspension through noise (and silence) whilst refining a mercurial, highly distinctive method and an arrestingly dramatic on-stage presence.
In Fushitsusha he is joined by original Fushitsusha/Kousokuya drummer Ikuro Takahashi and bassist Mitsuru Nasuno (who Haino also plays with in Seijaku). Their disc Hikari to Nazukeyo was one of the most hotly anticipating releases of 2012.
