Hainer and the Ruins (aka Knead)
8/10/01 Showboat, Koenji, Tokyo
Keiji Haino, Tatsuya Yoshida, and Hasashi Sasaki
Knead is featured on PSF128, a really nice live set available here:
“Knead is a new unit which brings together two of the most unmistakable voices in the Japanese underground, juddering prog-thrash duo Ruins, and master of all darkness he surveys Keiji Haino. Recorded live at Manda-la2 in December 2001.”
In addition to the above sets, I also has the followers:
2/2/03 Knead -Yaneura, Tokyo Shibuya -Haino (gtr)Tatsuya Yoshida (dr, voX), Hisashi Sasaki (b)) aud csb> MD, A-, 69 min
6/5/03 Tokyo, Koenji -w/Knead 2cd rocks radically!!--2cd-118 min B+/ A- this set is marred by slight microphone overloads, but is still quite listenable.
In addition I have quite a number of Haino sets with Yoshida and others from dates 1998 up to very recently. My trade list is fairly up to date at
