More Info

K2 alias Kimihide Kusafuka is one of the most important early 80's japanese noise protagonists in line with Masami Akita (Merzbow) or Hijokaidan and Toshiji Mikawa of Incapacitants with several hundreds of releases and contributions in the past three decades

In 1981 he started his musical activity devoting himself solely to recording several different styles of noise-works/music to be released primarily on his own tape-label called Kinky Tape Collection (later changing name to Kinky Musik Institiute) and released around 20 tapes during the coming 4 years with noise-music while the term and genre "noise-music" itself interestingly just established years later.

Some of his works he also licensed to other international Tape-Labels such as Schwabenstolz and Stock und Hut Records in Germany or D.D. Records in Japan or contributed to Cassette-Compilations on ZSF, Illusion Productions, De Fabriek, Calypso Now,

The era during 1981-1986 was the time of music experiments for Kimihide with 1983 being the most intense year of recordings produced At that time, he had been related to mail art & music and performed metal percussion solo-concerts.

Although Kimihide loves the dark and neurotic atmosphere of “ZombieAnatomy” series, he also loves the rhythmic noise work such as “Dance Macabre” and “N.G. Music” and he even recorded electronic pop, avant-garde rock which you can listen to in his project Techno Menses in 1983/84 (released on VOD-Records a few months ago) or Denjubaku in 1982/83 or under his real name Kimihide Kusafuka

This 2Lp-Compilation contains the very early period of K2; his previously unreleased first tape work “Student Apathy” which is a kind of music concrete or tape music in modern music as well as three serial works of “ZombieAnatomy” and the more beat noise work “N.G. Musik” and “Dance Macabre”. (Some of these works have been released in the late 80's as a 5 cassettes box by RRRecords, Pathosonico Anatomico”/ K2)
