Ultra Bide

The Original Ultra Bide


Ultra Bide was an underground avant-garde/noise-punk band that was originally active as a central member of Kansai No Wave from 1978 to 1980 (together with Aunt Sally, Friction, Inu, Ss), the album released from Alchemy Records in 1984 is finally remastered and reissued! Ultra Bide was a quartet consisting of Jojo Hiroshige(who later formed Hijokaidan), Taiqui, who became the drummer for Ain Soph, Hidè, punk legend who is still active in Kyoto, and Koichiro, who was a member of Maher, Shalal, Hash, and Baz in the early days. The band sounded like a car accident, with violent synthesizers and Bide's nonsensical lyrics. A mushy guitar and a mushy bass. A band sound like a traffic accident, and lyrics that are full of ferocious synthesizers and bidet nonsense.  Their astonishing sound, which had already established avant-garde punk in 1978, was not only cutting-edge at the time, but also had a huge impact on the underground scene of punk, noise, psychedelic, etc. that followed. The band is also known to be respected by the Osiripenes as their most influential band.
