Episode 11 – The Merzbow Records to Avoid…….

Merzbow Noise Podcast Music

Still unsure where to start with Merzbow’s supersized catalogue? Are you a seasoned Merzbow fan still keen on hunting down obscure gems? Welcome to the second installment of our guide to Merzbow. This time around we chat about the Merzbow records that disappointed us and recommend a few that you might do best to avoid. Funnily enough, without even discussing beforehand Dave and I ended up finding a lot of common ground here.

So, what Merzbow records disappointed you? Did you disagree with us? Then email us! theantidotepodcast@gmail.com

Episode 5 – The Beginner’s Guide to Merzbow

We’re kicking off 2013 with a mini episode aimed squarely at those folks new to the world of noise and experimental music, but sure to be enjoyed by aficionados as well. It’s the Antidote Podcast’s Beginner’s Guide to Merzbow!

Masami Akita’s Merzbow project has been going for more than thirty years and spans upwards of 500 releases. Considered by many as the ‘father’ (godfather?) of contemporary noise music, the Merzbow catalogue can be a tough thing to tackle. Wanna check out some Merzbow but don’t know where to start? In this 20 minute episode we discuss which Merzbow records are ideal for first time listeners, and also (attempt to) choose our favourite in his discography. Head over to iTunes and subscribe to The Antidote or listen to episode 5 now

Our picks for the best Merzbow records for beginners include Merzbear, Merzbeat, Merzzow and Yoshinotsune.
