As it unfortunately is, if people don’t know facts then it’s often quite easy for them to make something up, sometimes it has some bearing to reality, though quite often it is somebody’s wank fantasy. Tony G has addressed the issue of disinformation surrounding bands like Sieg Heil, Gai, Swankys, Confuse etc. and what we have here with More Noise issue 10 is a research project based around the history of Kyushu noise punk. Though Tony has decided not to add his own thoughts during this issue (though his line of questioning expresses this to an extent) he has let the bands do the talking. Lots of re-printed stuff from Japanese language DOLL Magazine which have of course been translated into English, as well as recent interviews with our friend Passy (Confuse) and a further hilarious interview with Watch (Swankys). The only negative is that for reasons unknown Tony decided not to print the interview that he did with a member of Kuro from a few years ago. For those with a passing interest in the afore mentioned bands this fanzine is probably not for you, for obsessives like myself this is a modern day bible.
