Masturbation - Discography CD (ADK)
Another one of the ADK discography cds released by OK Records. This one collects all the stuff Masturbation ever put out.
I listened to it quite recently thinking it was an LP of the band, I can't remember much except for the fact that I enjoyed it!
Has a sleazy hard-edged punk sound, which I found very appealing. Also fans of other ADK releases will instantly recognize the famous Tam "Hard Punk" production.
Unfortunately I know hardly anything about this band, But I heard somewhere that the bassist went on to play for Kikeiji.
I also read in an issue of MRR that the band were exibitionists, this could be referring to their live show though, I read on a Japanese site that the singer would do such things as cutting himself open at gigs, Which sounds like Iggy Pop or Sid Vicious. Maybe the singer would even live up to the band's name and have a wank on stage? Wouldn't be suprised.
In fact, this album kind of reminds me of The Stooges. Especially the riff on track 4. An influence? Probably, who knows?
GO GET IT!
