Pain Jerk is legendary Japanese noise master Kohei Gomi (also a member of

 Japanoise supergroup Gomikawa Fumio). Gomi is famed for his ‘dynamic’, highly physical brand of brutal analog squall, and has destroyed festivals in Norway and the US, but has never set foot in the UK.

Live at No Fun Fest 2007


Emeralds are the prodigious trio from Ohio that have emerged from the US noise landscape yet relate much more to the ethereal beauty of 1970s Germany, producing a kind of beatless take on the dreaminess of Harmonia and Cluster.

Live at No Fun Fest 2008



Blue Sabbath, Black Fiji will be making a rare Edinburgh appearance. Incendiary guitar noise/attack from Glasgow (via France/Germany). A truly awesome live act.

Diva Abrasiva, Merry bunch of men will be torturing modified instruments and industrial, domestic material (string-hanged feeding back bucket, kitchen sink, custom bio-hazard cab horn and more) in flavor of free improvisation, free noise, for your aural pleasure. racket-decay!


Pain Jerk, Emeralds UK tour is organized by:

This tour is supported by: Arts Council England, North East; Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation; Japan Foundation; and Rock-A-Rolla magazine.
