HANATARASH – Venue Destruction as Music

by Red Cell

Hanatarash, the seriously infamous 80s Japanese noise band, known for destroying venues and making their audiences sign waivers before they would perform, has an amazing photo document slide show of their Nerima, Tokyo show where they drove a backhoe bulldozer through the back wall and onto the stage, using it as just another instrument in the band. Hanatarash was led by yet-to-be Boredoms frontman, Yamantaka Eye, and Zeni Geva guitarist Mitsuru Tabata. The two met as stage hands for Einst├╝rzende Neubauten! Well, that does make a lot of sense.
