REVIEW >>> Nobuo Yamada, who runs the abh label in Japan, has created the most captivating TNB remix that I have ever heard. I thought that I had been transported into the mental madness that is TNB as far as I could be with the nihilistic stylings of the Rupenus crew, but when I first heard this release, I was catapulted into a deeper chasm, one that takes the mindless meditation of TNB recordings further on into oblivion...but at the same time, in a completely new direction. Originally released on abh in 2004 in an edition of 150 on cdr, "Empty Time of TNB" carved 3 new distinct TNB recordings into exsistance. 'Prickle/Crevice' is the first of these 3 tracks, and the most powerful. Images of 1000 sax players being blown to pieces and torn apart in the middle of a concert comes to mind as you listen...yet at the same are culled into an incredible psychedelic journey of meditative proportions...and left with a full feeling of the meaning of nothing.


When Nobuo heard that the project was going to vinyl...he blessed us with a new mix of 'Prickle/Crevice' even more powerful mix of the already insane testament to the sound of sound.............. [PsychForm Records/US]

 "Empty Time Of TNB"(abh-10) で最も評価の高かったトラック"Prickle/Crevice" のレコード化にあたり、さらに映画音声などを加え再エディットした、"Prickle/Crevice" の最終完成形。ジャケット写真は"Empty Time Of TNB"で使った同場所の1年後のさらに腐敗が進んだテクスチャーを使用。



The "Empty Time Of TNB" most evaluation was higher in the "Prickle / Crevice" It is a work that was the LP record. Such as more movie sound to the original sound source the addition was built again, it is the final complete form of "Prickle / Crevice".  cover is a photo of one year after the same location that was used in "Empty Time Of TNB". There was on the way to corruption.
