Reaven Borosque, Velocity Stack, Conure and your friend Xome. The appearance was given that people who witnessed this spectacle of noise were extremely entertained.

June 19, 2003

Brommer Street House, Santa Cruz, CA, US

Well this show was held at someone's house with a most unlikely lineup. Performing were SICKNESS, Randy H.Y. Yau, Pedestrian Deposit, Rubber Cement, Oscillating Innards, Stimbox and, your's truly, Xome. The only thing missing from this 'house party' was the keg and a good PA.

Xome at NoiseNight LSG - May 29, 2003

June 7, 2002
Noise in Montana
11 Eleven Club, Billings, MT, US

Xome at Noise in Montana - June 7, 2002

Spider Monkey (not Spire Monkey) from Billings started off this monumental event with his noise-DJ act. Next up were Empty also from Billings. A solid computer based sequence which ran amuk. After that was DCLXVI from Whitehall, MT. The harshest laptop based noise I've ever heard! Then came Pop Culture Rape Victim, again from Billings. Excellent noise.. excellent action. Eight enthusiastic thumbs up! Then Stimbox played a mean set of really psycadellic noizu. Xome played last and furious. Squeezed 3 hours of crunchy harshness into 13 minutes. This was supposedly the first ever noise show in Billings. I'm sure nobody who came to the show will ever forget...!


March 18, 2002

The Loft, Sacramento, CA, US

Xome at The Loft, Sacramento, CA, US - March 18, 2002

Xome played first, fast and loud. There were a few people there who wished they had some earplugs but they didn't and now they still cannot hear all that well. Stimbox joined forces with Shitty Things and whipped up a broken rock noise frappachino deluxe. There was also a jazzy jazz outfit that played as well as a rawk band. I don't think it was an Ozzy cover band.


December 17, 2001
Harshnoise Holiday
The Loft, Sacramento, CA, US

Xome flopped hair and made good noise at the Loft in Sacramento. Other performers were Stimbox, Pedestrian Deposit, Delayed Sleep and Shitty Things. The five people that were there had a decent injection of noise to close out the year.

Xome at NorCal Noise Festival 2001 (Day 1) - October 5, 2001

Xome played a short but crunchy and squeaky harsh noise performance. Also playing were other miracles of noise like Critical Theatre, Deconstruct, Delayed Sleep, Pablo St. Chaos, Products of Conception, Sleeping with the Earth, Stimbox, and Stolen Light. Luna's Cafe is rather small and the PA was way too loud. A great night of noise.

dori dock night @ E-regular
Cyberia, Nishi Azabu, Tokyo, Japan

Xome at dori dock night @ E-regular - December 22, 1998

Here here. The bounciest and most disorganized Xome performance to date was right here on this very night. The fact that "Xome is Xome and always will be Xome" was hard-wired into everyone's brain. In theory it was a good show. Someone even yelled "Lynard Skynard" after the performance was all done. The others that also performed were Kentaro Hamasato and lots of DJs spinning discs.

Keiren no Yoru 4 (Spastic Night 4)
UFO Club, Koenji, Tokyo, Japan

Xome at Keiren no Yoru 4 (Spastic Night 4) - June 26, 1998

Everyone came to the UFO Club to see Mo*Te, Xome, Yukiko, MSBR & K2 & Government Alpha & Evil Moisture (from the U.K.) & Rudolf (from Sweden), Kiyoshi Mizutani, Facialmess, Kazumoto Endo, Gomikawa (T. Mikawa & Pain Jerk), Stimbox (from San Francisco), Crack Fierce, *0 ( x - Maniac Pussy ) and Cracksteel get together and play one of those groovy noise shows. It was an evening of sounds ranging from the rediculous to the extreme. It seems like a lot of people who came were rather entertained.

January 20, 1998
Extreme Attitude
Club Taurus, Nagoya, Aichi, Japan

I heard this one was called Extreme Attitude and that was the understatement of the evening. OK. So what. It was Xome's first time to play outside of Tokyo. The shinkan bullit train was ridden all the way to Nagoya to perform with lots of music bad-boys. For example, Negarobo (from Sapporo), Beach on You, Multiplex (from Tokyo). A good time was had by all.


July 26, 1997
Tokyo Neo-Sounds Showcase
UFO Club, Koenji, Tokyo, Japan

An all night touchy feely nice night with Xome and lots of other cacophonic peoplez.

Xome at Bar Aoyama, Aoyama, Tokyo, Japan - May 14, 1997

Xome played at this club that was this virtually unseen hole in the wall under a bridge in Aoyama, but the joke was on Xome. Lead singer and rhythm guitarist superstar, Rick Dobbs, fell into an open sewer and was pulled to safety by a scantily clad girl in a bunny outfit. People like TV Pow, who also played, stayed away from the stench that was emanating from Rick's poop-saturated jeans.

Exquisite and Difficult Music Festival Day number 2
20,000 Volts, Koenji, Tokyo, Japan

Lot's of people banged their little heads with Xome at the second day of this well-planned two day festival. We also saw the likes of Merzbow, Melt Banana, TV Pow (from the USA of A), Kirihito and Tsunoda / Furukawa. We wanted to drink Japanese sake floating on a little tray in a hot tub but they wouldn't lettuce.

Xome at Keiren no Yoru 2 (Spastic Night 2) - March 8, 1997

Your friend and mine, Xome, got to bounce around with Incapacitants, TV Pow (from Chicago), Government Alpha, Crack Feirce, Crack Steel, Government Alpha, Building of Gel, Kazumoto Endo, Magmax and K2. Yes, 11 noisy noisicians all in a row. And we finally got to go back home at 6 AM.

Izumiwaku Project 1996
Izumi Junior High School, Eifuku-chou, Tokyo, Japan

Golly gee whizz! Xome got together with Yuuji Sashizawa who played percussion instruments and Souichirou Hamasaka & Shinobu Moshino who do the Butoh dance to make a spectacular outdoor noise and dance performance. This was part of the two-week Izumiwaku Project 1996 where artists, musicians and performers get together and do weird things with spoons. We even practiced for this one.

20,000 Volts, Koenji, Tokyo, Japan

Gee what else?! Xome joined up with Barrell Organ (perhaps XomeOrgan?) to produce something that everyone liked and brought home with them in their minds. Mindanao performed too as well as H. Burger from Stereo. Urgesnake played too! Xome tried not to wreck the big amps at 20,000 volts. You have to had seen this....

Xome had this performance with Otomo Yoshihide, Astro Twin (Ami Yoshida and Utah Kawasaki), Satoru Wono, Yuko Nexus 6, Microscope and Tomomi Adachi as everyone's favorite master of ceremonies. Watch out! Xome used a long plastic tube of sorts.



November 24, 1995
Killart 1995
Theatre Poo, Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan

Xome at Killart 1995 - November 24, 1995

Death Squad (from San Francisco), Stimbox (from San Francisco), Xome, Killer Bug and a wonderful trio featuring Tsunoda Tsuguto and Mike Hartman. A virtual flying kinky kids fuck fest full of dissonance and excruciating imagery. jEsus Krrist! It was a blast from the future - right in my ear-hole.


October 29, 1995
"The Pain Factory" TV program
Channel 53, San Francisco, CA, US

Xome had a taped segment on the "Pain Factory", a local access television program broadcast in the San Francisco Bay Area. The show featured live on-air performances from Killer Bug, Crawl Unit & Stimbox and included taped segments from Xome & MSBR.

Sonic Pareidolia Paradise vol 3.0.1
Gear, Koenji, Tokyo, Japan

This one was with Incapacitants, Mackerel Can Molding Company, Xome, Mindanao and Grand Mother Fucker. This night was filled with strangeness beyond the human imagination. We saw big bears craving fish, improvised muck rock and a rather bizarre performance sound-wise from Xome.

Keiren no Yoru 1 (Spastic Night 1)
LaMama, Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan

Xome at Keiren no Yoru 1 (Spastic Night 1) - October 7, 1995

It was with: Kiyoshi Mizutani (ex - Merzbow), Killer Bug, Xome, Barrel Organ and Y. Hasegawa! It was quite a show. We saw power electronics being abused and abused as well as Kiyoshi Mizutani using wood for a mind boggling sound source.

X.O.M.E. ten
Oka Garou, Koenji, Tokyo, Japan

Xome members participated in a month long exhibit at the famed Oka Garou (Gallery).

No humans were harmed during this exhibit.

August 10, 1995

Cyber, Ikebukuro, Tokyo, Japan

The Japan Transcendental Cacophony hosted a cornucopia of cacophony with Merzbow, Xome, CCCP, Killer Bug and Pain Jerk. People came. People cried. People left. People will always remember. There will be some real Xome photos taken at this one for you to gaze at and wonder.

Xome at Showboat, Koenji, Tokyo, Japan - June 8, 1995

A honest-to-goodness performance because Xome split lots and lots of ears and scared everyone. It was with Mackerel Can Moulding Company, Lemon (?), Butthole Cosuck, and the ever so amazing, Sukarabe Jizo. Sometimes I wonder.

JTCA presents...
20,000 Volts, Koenji, Tokyo, Japan

A true blue performance because this incredible performance was sponsored by the Japan Trancsendental Cacophony Association . CCCC, Pain Jerk, Grand Mother Fucker, Xome, Cult Junk Cafe and Pukoo put on a extreme and extremly jolly good show. A lot of people came to see this one but the world didn't end the next day. Thanks to the great gum of alien abductions.

Keep us Fuckin' On vol. 14
20,000 Volts, Koenji, Tokyo, Japan

An honest to gum performance because on this incredible night, you were enlightened by Grand Mother Fucker, Little Fujiko, Xome, Piraneji and Hormone Rider. It was actually guaranteed to be a show never to be forgotten and nobody has so far. And that's all...

April 4, 1995

20,000 Volts, Koenji, Tokyo, Japan

In one evening, live on stage...Pukoo, Xome, Yohei Hasegawa. Not too many people showed up but the ones that did were more than entertained. Perhaps the most outstanding Xome performance to date. If you missed it, kick yourself once, forget about it because you can't go back in time, and come to the next performance.

March 7, 1995
Flying Heads Om
20,000 Volts, Koenji, Tokyo, Japan

A real performance because a nice name was gracefully stuck on this mother. Xome performed with : Puckoo, the Subways, Yohei Hasegawa project. Hmmm, we kind of thought that this one was going to be done at Yaneura again but, confusion for the masses.... it was at 20,000 V.

February 12, 1995
The Vegetable Soup on the Hibachi
Yaneura, Shimokitazawa, Tokyo, Japan

Xome at The Vegetable Soup on the Hibachi - February 12, 1995

Xome at Igyou no Oukoku (Kingdom of Freaks) vol. 37 - January 15, 1995

A real performance because Xome went out on a limb with Merzbow, C.C.C.C.II, Seiichi Yamamoto, (Boredoms, Omoide Hatoba), Kumiko Yamamoto and time didn't permit M. Jackson to go on. Sob.
