    Keiji Haino + KK Null – Mamono

    Keiji Haino - Mamono

    After a wait of several decades, the first-ever collaborative album from longtime Japanese noise-mongers Keiji Haino and KK Null comes kicking and screaming into the world. Contrary to expectation, these two characters offer up exactly zero examples of dueling electric guitar feedback, opting instead to open the album with two tracks of power electronics spackled with Haino’s plaintive vocal screeching. End result: The walls of your ear canals come crashing down. On track three, Haino supplies a staggered drum beat while Null continues spluttering the electronics and screeches like a cat that has been skinned alive then set on fire. On tracks four and five. Null takes over on sloppy drums while Haino brandishes some dry, quirky guitar tussle that gets mangled inside an aluminum tornado. Track six is a long, 22-minute excursion into the wonderful world of garbled power electronics, as both men handle those duties and vocals, plus Haino on drum machine. (Don’t worry, you can’t dance to it.) Track seven closes the whole album in a similar manner, but with the added “pleasure” of Null on drum machine. Basically, we’re talking about a 16-minute free noise fest that sounds like a gigantic peanut butter and jelly sandwich got shoved in a meat grinder stuck on the “Reverb” setting. So, if you’re a die-hard fan of Haino or Null, there’s at least a 50% chance that Mamono will most likely make you moan “Oh!” with delight.
