The Mae Shi - Lock The Skull, Load The Gun
A noise rock DVD, from a band that calls itself The Mae Shi. Doesn’t ring a bell here. But since my love for experimental music is ever growing, I’ll just give them a try now wont I?
 
The Mae Shi have created (with a little help from a whole bunch of friends) thirty videos for their songs. Most songs are relatively short, and for a couple of songs even two videos are made. The music they play consists of some sort of punk-rock like carnival music. It’s very noisy, very incoherent and very theatrical. Most videos provide for a good laugh, while some are put together quite impressively. There is a lot of animated stuff, some handheld camera footage and a lot of computer manipulated imagery.
 
Furthermore there is a documentary of an hour about their U.S. tour, which shows how horrible (but still fun!) it is for a noise band to do a tour. No people, cancelled shows, too much alcohol, ridiculous live performances (even in a couple of living rooms) and the encounter with a Terrorbird. Then there is another extra video-clip which holds fast forwarded footage of someone playing drums, a mini-keyboard and a xylophone at the same time, for a couple of minutes. Well, a couple of fast forwarded minutes that is. And all that remains to be seen on the DVD then are the credits.
 
It’s a great DVD for fans of unorthodox noise rock, who also love some experimental visual material. It’s an enjoyable release that shows a breathing under-underground scene. This is not for a mainstream crowd, that’s for sure.
