Xinlisupreme, the solo project of Japanese guitarist Yasumi Okano,
penned the twisted noisy guitarscapes of
Tomorrow Never Comes (Fat Car, 2002).
He pays tribute with punk hysteria to the age of surf-rock in
Kyoro, where the gallopping guitar theme is buried under layers of abrasive distortion, somewhere between Jimi Hendrix and the Raybeats.
Mostly, the music is wrapped in a dense fog of distortion, whether in the
industrial terror of Symmetry or the
manic tribal rhythm of Under a Clown (scarred by piano dissonance).
The eight-minute All You Need Is Love Was Not True is a threnody that
sounds like a spoken-word version of Suicide
with outbursts of
My Bloody Valentine's distorted melodies.
You Died in the Sea is a seven-minute industrial dance that harkens back
to the age of Cabaret Voltaire and SPK.
The 12-minute sound collage Fatal Sisters Opened Umbrella mixes an evocative cinematic song with urban noise and the music of a county fair.
The album ends with the disjointed, deconstructed Japanese folk tune
The album is an exercise in transplanting melodic music of various strains into Japanese noise-core.
The project seemed to disappear after the
mini-album Murder License (2002), ostensibly a pacifist concept.
He returned from retirement with the protest political concept of
I Am Not Shinzo Abe (2018).
