I went to my least favorite bar in San Francisco the other night to see COPS (who ruled) and a couple of Japanese noise weirdos. Two piece GAGAKIRISE dished out a brilliant sonic wall of psych/guitar noise backed with powerful and chaotic Japanese hardcore drums, and the show started with a dude named Joe, crawling around on the floor with a plastic anime monster turning knobs and hitting pedals with his fist. I completely understand why some folks don't like to watch noise (even many who enjoy listening to the sounds), but Joe (VVDBLK) was engaging, his performance brief, and the sounds were excellent.
