Highlighting unknown, obscure or simply excellent musicians

A small personal website with the aim to share detailed release information for a number of artists, but also to highlight some items from my collection

  • Latest & Greatest

    I’ve started to update the template for the Collection Features page. It now resembles the main page with regards to website updates, though you will only see an extract of the main text. You therefore have the ability to read the full content on a separate “blog” page. Additional photos have also been added for each current entry to further enhance the reading experience.

    Expect further changes in the next few weeks. Not just for Collection Features, but for the whole website. The main goal is to allow single posts for each entry, including discographies.

Previous Stuff

  • Angel-TAKA revealed the two new guitarists earlier today for Neu:NOIZ, the reincarnation of UCHUSENTAI:NOIZ.

    The first one is called sebastian who is also the guitarist for BULL ZEICHEN 88, although they went on a break as of late 2020.

    The second one is DAISHI from (amaterasu). A band who at least still perform live these days.

    The remaining UCHUSENTAI:NOIZ members (Angel-TAKE, 叫 and YAMATO) will take part in Neu:NOIZ as well.

    Am curious to see and hear what the new members will bring to the table, what their style of music is going to be and whether they plan to release new music anytime soon!

  • When メトロノーム released an album or single back in the day, some shops gave away a bonus disc in the form of a CD or DVD with some unique content. Three of those releases have been added to the website today being a 2001 Club Indies 自主盤倶楽部 CD, a 2007 Like an Edison CD for a single and another Like an Edison release which is a DVD for an album.

  • Zebra and Snake have been added back to RunOutGrooves. You can again find all of their releases, including some new scans and photos. I also corrected one huge error: the 2010 single Big Bad Drummer was for whatever reason never on the website!

  • Artwork for four albums by メトロノーム or featuring songs by メトロノーム has finally been added to the website. The albums are:

    All album artwork should now be available on the website for this band!

  • All メトロノーム CD’s came in this week, so it is now time for me to digest, rip and scan them all.

    The first two have already been added being the 2003 3″ CD-single featuring ドクター and the 2006 CD シンセカイ. Both feature otherwise unreleased demo recordings!

  • It’s been 12 years since I launched this website (on the 30th of January 2012 to be precise). Four months later, on the 26th of May, I already updated its design and used it ever since.

    A lot has happened in the world of website designs, but also when it comes to creating and maintaining a website. This website was showing its age. I already toyed with the idea to make it a bit more modern for at least 2 years, but never went for it until recently.

    It wasn’t easy as I am not a professional and rarely update the site these days, so I have little experience or interest to stay relevant. This meant I had to delve into the world of WordPress (the platform I chose this time) and learn it the hard way.

    Long story short, I hope you like it and once again enjoy your stay!

    Besides a new look I also added missing releases, scans and information where possible. Especially メトロノーム got a nice boost!
