** Ltd 300, deluxe silver silkscreen on black cardboard + inserts. Masonna first (and lost) album, released for the first time** Cascades of electronic noise, a psychedelic touch and vocal belching mixed together constitute the ingredients of Mademoiselle Anne Sanglante Ou Notre Nymphomanie Auréolé, the double-barreled name for Masonna. Maso Yamazaki founded his project in 1987, with a charismatic and glamorous personality who become a cult figure in “ Japanoise ” scene. Predating the era of digital domination, there was a time where artist-run labels putting out primarily, if not exclusively, tapes were legion: Toshiji Mikawa’s own Pariah Tapes, Masami Akita’s ZSF Produkt, Koji Tano’s MSBR Records, Masaya Nakahara’s My Fiance's Lifework Productions, Akifumi Nakajima’s G.R.O.S.S., Kimihide Kusafuka’s Kinky Musik Institute, Hiroshi Hasegawa’s Endorphine Factory, Hiroshi Hashimoto’s SSSM and Maso Yamazaki’s Coquette are just a few examples from Japan alone.

Masonna’s abundant productions on his own legendary and astonishing label were presented in very limited edition, sometime totally confidential (one sole copy), and reflect his predilection for 60’s psychedelic music revisited in its own very peculiar way. Maso Yamazaki transforms his voice into noise, feeding the microphone back through a process of extreme distortion. His shouts became clipped bursts of overloaded sound, doubled and extended by a delay that displaced the sounds into stuttered blasts of static. These vocal sounds fuse into a rattling background of harsh metallic fuzz, which was created by frantically shaking a highly amplified box filled with coins. Bursting Absolute Moods should have been the 1989 debut Lp album on Vis a Vis Audio Arts, the legendary label run by Juntaro Yamanouchi, but never released until now! All tracks were recorded live, at home ,with no mixing and no overdubs. Album is full of very rough harsh noise that’s mostly made up of lots of distorted screaming. This early work is very loud, noisy, and has lots of angry energy. The distortion and effects on the vocals are top notch, they in combination with his awesome screaming create a complete audio assault. Divided into two parts of twenty minutes each that focuses an electrically overcharged universe, punctuating the electric and vocal sonorous power with some quite moments and brief interruptions, conferring a very particular dynamic to these tracks.

Released for the first time, the record has been pressed on 140 gr black vinyl with black label and black inner sleeve and comes in a deluxe silver silkscreen on black cardboard sleeve in 300 copies with Maso Yamazaki’s photo cover art plus full color postcard in 300gr, foldable in A4 size and business card with art cover replica of Coquette tape All Live Recording At My Room where debut Lp on Vis A Vis was announced.
