“A collaboration between Canadian\Japanese jazz/noise/avantgarde/grindcore artist Haggari Nakashe (sometimes operates as a solo artists and sometimes as a band under the same moniker) and Israeli multi-generic experimentalist, Gaop. Referring to what they do as “extreme music for people with a short attention span”, their tracks are just that; short blasts, often melodic, and 90% hummable \ memorable.”
Here we have a re-release of an album that was limited to 20 copies and sold out years ago. A Casio/Grind/Noise collaboration by Haggari Nakashe from Canada/Japan and Gaop from Israel. When two artists from different countries collaborate with each other you know it will be golden. Pictures of Gold and Terror does just that and then some. Remember being a kid and rockin’ out on the Casio you got for Christmas and your parents looking at you like some kinda dumbass. Well this album will surely piss your parents off but as for you, you’ll love it. With the added elements of grind and noise one can only ask themselves is this ok to be listening to? Well my good man/woman yes it is, and yes its worth the nosebleed at the end of it all. You can’t also forget that this album is several years old and probably about only 25 people before yourself has listened to this. That is unless you are reading this in the future and me typing this is actually in the past then who knows how many people have heard it by then. Everything I can be typing right now could be completely irrelevant to you by now and I wouldn’t know because past me wrote this. So you person reading this in the present, whichever present that is at the point in time you are reading this have fun and grind. -RR!
So a few months back I was doing some random searching on youtube, you know the type of searching you only do when you are at the lowest of lows and bored out of your mind. I fell upon Mechonat Hereg while searching for random videos made by fans of Agoraphobic Nosebleed, I set the settings to most recent downloads and the one at the very top of the list was a track called Snipe Hunt. They took a track by AgNb and manipulated in there own way and created a masterful piece of work that just made me want to listen to more. I started doing research right away and found out they were from Israel, my first reaction was wow, I’ve never heard anything of this type from Israel, granted I haven’t really heard much from the area really at all. I was able to find them on Facebook and automatically extended the offer of releasing their album here in the states as a free download and they agreed to it. I had been talking to one of the two members of Mechonat Hereg, Rafi and he seemed really astonished of how I found them being from the states and all. This made me realize that we aren’t so much different from one another even living so many thousands away from each other. I was just as astonished at the fact that I found people that enjoy and produce music just like I do and from the other side of the world. This label / blog has really in my opinion would be nothing without the internet, none of the bands you listen to from this blog would have never been found by myself if it wasn’t for this luxury a bunch of people take for granted. This is a tool of great power and without it we would be nothing, without you all, the fans, we would be nothing. So from all of us here at ROBO! Robotica, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, please enjoy the the buttload of releases we got coming your way in the next few weeks. -RR!
